    Posted: 20 Aug 2017 at 2:11pm
Hi all
I see that in the DC-63 (with the latest update) there is an FMC present. Can anyone tell me if this is functional in the 63 and is there an additional font required with Windows 10? Is there a method of turning the FMC on or off?
Thanks
Warren

The fonts are messed up.  I just ask for help on this subject.

I didn't receive an answer from JustFlight so I did some research and some where on the JustFlight website there is a font mentioned regarding one needed for Lockheed Tristar with a link to a download - I did this and now the FMC works for the 63. Sorry to be vague but a little research in the forums should guide you to it.
Hope this helps
Warren

I already downloaded the karriff.fnt.   Thats been out for quite some time.  The problem now is it fill up too much of the FMC so that the item on the right hand side cannot be seen all the way.

Thanks

Hi
I've noticed that as well  but what I have is more or less workable until I can find a proper font. Many things are not quite right with at least the 63 but it is much more usable (for me) with the recent update.
Take care
Warren

It will still be a little wide with this font but it works.  Its the font Just Flight posted.
