I bought the LCF model yesterday and everything was fine. However today I have found that my cargo options have changed? I have included a screen shot to illustrate what I mean. I do not understand why? Can anyone help?[attachment=20728:Presentation1.jpg]Thank YouBarrie Davies

I went back to the config manager and selected another model the 400F then saved the changes. Opened the config manager again and selected LCF and saved the changes again. This solved the problem of the cargo loader but I have found another problem. Since installing the LCF the models of the 400F and 747-8F are not functioning properly. The main gear appear on the prview and when I load the aircraft it causes plane to crash into the ground. See attached image. Any suggestions?[attachment=20734:Presentation1.jpg] [attachment=20735:Presentation1.jpg]ThanksBarrie Davies
Wierd? Did you change to the -LCF configuration in the PMDG config program that should be on your desktop

I have just uninstalled the LCF, this did not solve the problem. I then unistalled the 747-8 expansion model. This did not solve the problem, the original 747-400F model was still loading with the main gear down. I am now attempting to reinstall the 747-8 expansion and LCF to see if this solves the error.Barrie Davies

I just thought of something people might want to try. How about using the config manager, setting it back to the -400 original. Then save and maybe even load a flight, then exit FS and rerun the manager and swap to the LCF. Maybe this problem and the door issue is because of something in the Aircraft.cfg from the -8i still being present?Worth a shot.

I have now done a repair on all pmdg 747 models but the problem has not been solved. I have also tried Dans suggestion (thanks for that ) but unfortunately this has not worked either. I am next going to completley remove all pmdg 747 models and install the again. I can't think of anything else to do?Barrie Davies

No I have not done a ticket. I have not used the support before so will give it a try maybe, but for now I am reinstalling the base package and the 747-8 expansion as I have not had any trouble with those i will leave the LCF for now. Hopefully this will solve the issue for now. I don't want to reinstall fsx if I don't have to. Thanks for the help.Barrie Davies

Hi just found out i got the same problem with the main wheels down and nose gear retracted in the preview on the freighter versions of the 747-400 but not with the pax version aftet installing the lcf also when i try to load any othe the other pmdg version of the freighter version it crashes after loading to airport so hopefully some one has the fix for this problem since now can only fly the lcf at the moment looks like the problem lies within the pmdg 747-400 config maanger since all freighter version will crash tried every prossible combinations but stil same

Hi just to let u know about the problem with the LCf the main wheels down and nose wheel up and than the plane crashes on loading think i mite have solved the problem well it works on my pc with no troubles yet. On the 747-400 config manager i selected the lcf than saved it, than opened up fsx than i selected the cessna than went to airport once loaded than i selected any 747-400f wether being the lcf or any other version it didnt crash although the preview still showed the main wheels down and nose wheel up. So if u leave the selection on lcf in the config manager and than u can slect any freighter version u like and it shud work as on my pc so hope this helps with previous posts.

I have exactly the same problem after installing the LCF - After runniing the config prog as admin, the 747F or the 747-8F show main gear down in preview and on 'Fly Now' gets a gear config error message in the eicas. If loaded at a strip, just flicks in and out of the ground (no crash detection).Works ok when selecting a passenger 747 or the LCF version, just NOT the freighter ones.John Ellison

I was told to uninstalled all PMDG 747 products and reinstall them. I did this and found that the problem was solved, the 400F model worked fine. However, when I went to config manager and choose the 747-8 and 747-8F model the problem reappeared and now niether of them the 400F or 800F model displays correctly in the preview. It seems selecting the 747-8 expansion in the config manager has something to do with causing the fault? Barrie Davies

I have just tried something that I thought of doing and it seems to solve the problem. I decided to try leaving the 400LCF model selected in the config manager and just try the other models with their appropriate VC cockpit and they seem to work fine. For example if I select 800F cockpit and leave the model set to 400LCF the 747-8 freighter works as usual, same goes for the original 400 freighter. Leave LCF as the model and just pick the appropriate freighter versions cockpit.[attachment=20768:Presentation1.jpg]ThanksBarrie Davies
