Howdy, hope everyone's well lately. I managed to find the freeware FS2004 MD-81/82 from Mitsushi Yutaka and Warren C. Daniel...the one with the Virtual Cockpit. Installed it (there were no installation instructions), fired it up, here's what I got:
* no gauges in the 2D or VC cockpits
* thrust reversers work by 'pumping' the power levers repeatedly in the reverse detent area (Saitek quadrants), it work just fine for other jets. Sounds are fine, too.
I'll say this: I'm already in love with the plane, it's the only freeware Mad Dog out there with a VC. Not easy to find, but worth the effort. Would anyone know what I'm doing wrong with just the simple installation of the plane, that it would not display the gauges? Should the gauge and sound files be put in the gauge/sound folders in the main folder? And the reverser operation...hopefully, someone reading this will have the same Mad Dog and know what to do. I'd greatly appreciate the help, thank you very much!
P.S. -- All I need now is an Allegiant repaint...
