Josh,

Can you transplant your change to jsb-777?
It's on the jsbdev branch.
It's not perfect yet, though. Drag is too small or engine idle thrust is too big to decent properly so far.

Let me know.

Thanks,
Hyde

Hi Hyde,
Sure, can do.

I can help out with the JSB when I get some spare time.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Looks Great!
1. I looked on the forum and the wiki, and people have been saying that the correct way to engage TO/GA on the runway is by pressing either ctrl-t or 'd'. I'm on a mac, and when I tried both of these methods, nothing worked.
2. A little suggestion. When the engine is running at idle, the fan disk is clearly animated and moving, but once you advance the throttle past about 30% N1, the fan disk turns into a dark static image. Is there any way to fix this, and make the aircraft seem more realistic by having an animated fan disk that spins even at 100% N1?

Sorry, TOGA doesn't have any keys; CTRL + T is for the a330 by artix, and d is for the 737-300.

In this aircraft, you simply put the throttle to maximum and takeoff. Or to be realistic, set it to ~92% N1 ;)

You can use ctrl+t with 777 but it's noir fully implented.

Josh, I have found a couple a small "glitches" when I run the 777-200LR ( In 2017.3.1)
No 1: The "approaching runway" callout continues on repeat all the way down the runway on acceleration, rather than just the one callout when entering. This may be a problem with 2017.3.1 not sure.
No 2: The "V1 Rotate" continues several times seems to stop the callout around 5000 feet!!!!
No 3: When using certain buttons (Autopilot, LNAV, VNAV are the ones I've found so far ) I get the "chime", The same as when you turn off and turn on the seat belt signs, Is this a new feature when operating these buttons?
No 4: This last one is not a major issue, (and may well be intented) When I turn off A/P when at 1000 ft on a ILS line up the plane "nose dives" towards the ground.

Hi Clive
1-3 no idea, I didn't program that.

4) I'll look into that, can you tell me, did the AP trim the plane? or it failed?

Kind Regards,
Josh
