Fully Auto where everything runs from the start after hitting CTRL+ Spacebar.
Just to be 100% clear, on Full Auto, one check item follows another within one checklist set, unless an error occurs (I forgot to turn on the beacon light, for instance, before pushback). When that happens I correct the item and hit Ctrl+Spacebar again: the item is repeated by FDC and, assuming the oversight has been corrected, the reply is 'On', 'OK' or whatever, and the next checklist item is read out. At the end of the Pre-start checks FDC then waits (even on Auto1) till I hit Ctrl+Spacebar again before it starts reading out the Before Pushback checklist. And again, when that finishes, FDC waits for Ctrl+Spacebar before starting the Before (engine) Start checklist. From the next checklist set onwards, 'After Start Checks', each checklist set begins on its own, at points desinated as in the pdf file and FDC no longer waits for a Ctrl+Spacebar input from the user.
That is what happens in all the a/c I use (and I assume that that is what you mean when you say this is what you get, with all your aircraft) - and that is great, exactly as I like it these days (I tend to forget to initiate checklists these days if its left to my memory - having no co-pilot or capatain in my room to prompt me!), apart from
(so far) the two I mentioned, when the first three checklists run with no input from me. If there is an error within a checklist, I have to correct it, but when the whole list has been finished, FDC starts the next one without waiting. I have to use the Pause FDC key to stop it going on long before I am ready. You aren't experiencing that, are you Dave? Maybe you (or anyone else who can be bothered!) could install the CamSim CS100/CS300 (AVSIM freeware) and see if you get what I do. I have attached my FDC files for this aircraft, to make it easy for anyone to do this. (Is there an error in my files that is causing the Auto_Ctrl_Space, maybe?? Use any of the profile BTW, I set up multiple ones with specific choices according to geographical area - pilot voices etc.).
