CaptainDummy Posted April 22, 2019 Share Posted April 22, 2019 Hello, I'm not sure if there is anyone who still uses MSFS4, but I'm going to give this a shot anyway! I didn't see a separate section for versions this old, so I am posting here. Some might think I'm crazy for wanting to fly such an old simulator, but I have a copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator 4.0 for DOS, and I happen to have a big appreciation for old games/programs that are packed with features for the time. Are there any experienced MSFS4 flyers that know or remember how to use the ILS system? I have the extensive 200+ page user manual and have been trying to piece together how I am supposed to lock onto a destination airport. I've added the destination airport's NAV frequency to my NAV1 radio, autopilot turned on and "Nav 1 lock on" turned on, but nothing. Approaching the destination airport runway is normal, with no indicators or anything. I loaded up a built-in mode in the game, as they have a couple of ILS approaches that start you mid-flight, and there are red boxes that guide you to the runway. If I change the nav 1 frequency to another one (testing), the boxes disappear. So I know I need to have the destination frequency plugged into the Nav radio, but if I try this on my own flight, the boxes don't show up. Just wanted to see if there are still any sim enthusiasts that still are familiar with this one. Keep in mind I am not a real pilot, and I just use these things for fun. I'm not familiar with real-world course plotting. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
