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.

    After Loading any PMDG Aircraft, black screen issue and P3D freezup.

    Hello all, new here but not to PMDG, Ill try and keep it sweet and short.
    - New NASA Desktop (with very latest windows 10 update)
    - P3D installed and running great
    - VFXCentral installed and running great with PMDG 747 at this time. *EDIT* - the install downloads for PMDG aircraft were from 08/2018 but ran fine.
    - A couple Airport/Area scenery packs installed

    -REX Worldwide/Environment and SkyForce Installed
    - A couple Airport/Area scenery packs installed
    - FSUIPC 5 Installed
    Thence:

    - PMDG no longer working (747,777) ,QW787 runs no problem for example/

    P3D basically "locks up" with black screen before aircraft is able to load.

    Any advice or tips? thanks!

    Quite a few posts here point out REX as the source of the problem since hotfix. Look at a few of those.

    Welcome to the PMDG forum, the rules you agreed to when you signed up specified that we all must sign our full name on all posts.

    I had same problem if I run PMDG without REX EF running. The developer gave me a test REX module file and the problem was solved. I hope new update will be soon to cure that issue. Meanwhile try to run EF before starting P3D and also try to turn auto debug to Off in EF setting. Several people reported it fixed the problem as well.

      Thanks skysurfer! I am not sure what, but it something fixed and now all is well with the exception of 747 engine nacelles shaking in shear and turbulence that i had noticed with FSX, any thoughts with that?

        I have a feeling REX is messing with something that causes PMDG aircraft to crash. I could be wrong though. After they pushed last EF update I had CTD flying PMDG aircraft. I brought it to REX attention but I received no response. If I do not run EF all is good.

          Sorry, but I had nothing but trouble since installing Rex Environment Force. Glad for you that got fixes from REX. After a weekend of black frozen screens P3D, I uninstalled Environment Force. All returned to normal. That does it for me. I will wait awhile until I go that route again.

            So, for anyone who may not be aware, REX has fixed issues experienced in this thread with Environment Force 2.0. Download it with REX installer.
            I am satisfied and up and running with it installed.
