Hi.

Can I ask little advice?

Id like to start vAGC Apollo 11 scenario earlier to complete checklists by starting backup crew procedures. Like t-3h00.
I changed the scenario to start earlier by adjusting MJD number, but middle of the inverter checks I was mode 1 bravo Shocked.
What I have to do to change lift off time in vAGC scenarios.  Change EMEMS ?

And there is something wierd how launch tower is placed. It placed  side of the place it should be and facing wrong direction.

Thanking

Apassi

What do you understand exactly when you said"I was mode 1B"?
Do you mean the P11 has already started, or do you only hear the sound file?
AFAIK, you can change the MJD date in the scenario file to start the sim earlier than T-3H (I made it several time without any problem), since the CMC clock automatically starts counting up at launch, when P11 is activated.

However, if required, you may change:
- liftoff time only via V70 (P27) in octal. See G&C checklist pg.3-2
- update CMC clock via V55 in decimal. See G&C checklist pg. 1-21

You need to change MISSNTIME in the Saturn, too.

Thanks for the answer

That 1 Bravo ment I was playing without sound and I was surprised when I was doing inverter checks on panel 4 and shifted to look DSKY, there was F 06 62 running already.

I might have some difficulties express myself  Rolling Eyes

Ok. Ill try to change that missntime

The short answer is don't worry about it.

I have recently discovered that the number currently entered is wrong, in several ways. Both in scale and how/when it is set.
The fix for this will be forthcoming soon. Hopefully with good moon position data as well.
