How do u select another runway in FS2002? Do you have to be on a specific flight plan in order to do this (IFR....VFR)? I mean, I mostly do my flights in and out of Chicago Midway (KMDW), and they always use the same runway (13C - 31C). I've never seen the screen that someone said on the ATC "Select another Runway." How and where do u get this? I've been trying to get clearance to land on 22L - 4R at MDW. Someone plz help! Thank you very much.

Iowaman has the right idea. Just like in real life, ATC will assign a runway based on the wind direction (and in a few circumstances - field conditions, a/c performance, etc). So if real-world weather is on, you'll get whatever the active runway is in real-life. Otherwise change it yourself, and expect to get assigned the runway you wanted.
