PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

        I'm bit of a slow adopter too - after years of fiddling with settings I've been pretty happy w/ the stability of PMDG and Prepar3D V4.5 w/ the hotfix.

          Full install needed or just the client? Cannot find that info on P3D site. Thanks.

            The following list of updates has been categorized based on the installer required. The Client installer is required for Prepar3D v5.2, however the Content, Scenery, and SDK installers are optional. You must first have Prepar3D v5 installed to utilize the Client only installer.

              Can anyone confirm the "dark" PBR has been fixed? That's the main reason I went back to P3D v4.

                  Some of the beta testers who commented on the other forum say that they have been testing the PMDG Boeings for months now, in the new update, with no problems.

                  If anyone owns KFLL by LatinVFR, it causes a CTD on P3D5.2. LatinVFR recommends uninstalling KFLL and downloading and installing the latest version published today.

                  Looking forward to the update. Sounds like the PMDG fleet is working.

                    Updating instantly is the worst thing to do... always wait for updates of the 3rd partys (and maybe the fix after the update)

                      I usually have no problems upgrading P3D versions, but after uninstalling the 5.1 client and installing the 5.2 version my FPS went from 30s to single digits when I load a PMDG plane. Trying to troubleshoot before considering a clean install.

                        Lucky for you I ran into the same problem, spent over like 3 hrs fixing it. If yiu have AIG and or FLAI and or even UTL2 you will have to uninstall completely then uninstall the client again and reinstall it. And yes those numbers are true EA on is better than EA off pretty much

                          I just fixed it by uninstalling the client, erasing all the shaders, and reinstalling the client. Thank you for the info.

                            Thanks for the information Alex, I will be going down the uninstall everything method this time to make sure I get a fully working and optimized P3D v5.2 installation to prevent any issues from occurring.

                              In modern sims, that isn't even an option. On the plus side it forces Asobo and 3rd parties to fix whatever breaks quickly.

                                      Hi
                                      on the first place and look yes.
                                      But Elevator trim is fixed in the full up position and cannot be changed anyway.
                                      So for T7 and 747-8 it is the same.
                                      Frames are fine, Cockpit lightning not really changed.

                                        I had this same issue with the 748F. Set T/O power and it immediately went full nose down trim. Had to hold the trim button down on the take off to stop it. Quit doing it when I engaged A/P.

                                        Edit: Think I solved it. Update reset my HOTAS to have trim assigned to the slider on the throttle. Removed the assignment and it seems to have stopped doing the auto-trim.
