    Default PMDG 747-400 TCAS and sids/stars problem

    I do hope these arent stupid questions.
    I have just installed my PMDG 747-400 and have 2 problems I am unable to solve myself.
    1. On the Nav Display it says TCAS OFF. I have changed the setting so the tcas runs from fs2004 and have pressed the traffic button on the EFIS panel but am still unable to activate tcas.
    2. When I input a route into my FMC and am on my depart / arrivals page, I am told no sids for my departure or stars for arrivals. How do I install my sids/stars so I can input them into my flightplan.
    I am running FS2004,on windows XP

    Any help on these problems apreciated.

    Many thanks.

    Let's see..

    1. You have to turn TCAS on from the radio panel. The EFIS switch only enables it for display.

    2. You can get current navigational data (including sids and stars) from http://www.navigraph.com/ - it's payware.

    3. You really, really, have to read the manuals in detail.

    4. You can get excellent tutorials from the PMDG site.

    5. The PMDG forum is over at AVSIM.com and has a lot of folks willing to help...

    If you still can't get TCAS to work try Concorde out that will have a built in TCAS and right click on the TCAS twice and it should work it worked on Concorde so it should work on any other aircraft.
