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.

    very bad FPS

    Hey,
    I bought the PMDG 737-700 yesterday and I suffer from very bad FPS, especially at landing. The FPS at the beginning of the flight are at approximately 35-40, but then they drop to 8-9 near the touchdown. I play on 1080p with high settings. I've got Ryzen 5 3600, GTX 1660 Super and 16GB of 3200Mhz ram. No one else that I've asked had the same problem and they were exteremely happy with the FPS they have. (they had really similar PC components and they played with similar settings)
    Do you know any way to fix that?
    Thanks

      I didn't have any scenery or addons, just the aircraft itself, and it was around noon.

    Have you turned down the MSFS AI?
    They tend to have a large effect while in close proximity of airports.
    Turn down some of you high settings as well. Don’t now what resolution you play, but a 1080 can be overwhelmed.

      I have reported the following to PMDG via a ticket, but this may or may not be related. I was flying yesterday in the BBJ from KSWF - EICK, about four and a half hours in FPS dropped from mid 30's down to as low as 11, but that only happened when panning around the flightdeck or exterior, when the viewpoint was static the fps was back to the mid 30's.

        I've started to notice significant FPS loss on approach really only with the 737. I get some pretty decent FPS loss with other aircraft on approach and TOD, but nothing tops the 737. My system is pretty bangin' good and runs most everything smooth as silk with high FPS. The second 737 transitions to approach, it's 1-8 FPS. Wow.

        Performance for me on approach is fine, mid 30's (fps locked at 36).

      Some things to make sure are not present in your community folder. AFC Bridge, FSUIPC (specifically auto saves), Pushback Toolbar, and the worse one of all is, Your Controls.

          I've been having this same issue. I did a BBJ flight that was approx 8.5 hours and it was averaging 50 FPS the entire flight. As soon as I start my TOD and transition to approach phase, the FPS drops so badly that I've had to Alt+F4 on some flights. I've had this issue only a few times. Most of my settings are on medium, but some are on high. I have an RTX 2060 super, i7-9700k OC to 4.9 GHz, 32 GB ram, PG is on (and I tried it off with no change in performance), rolling cache on @ 16 GB, and precache at ultra. I turned my LOD from 200 to 100 and that temporarily fixed it, but then the game looks like crap.

          I was recommended to remove toolbar push back and see if that works because it's been known to cause some serious performance loss. I'm starting a flight right now without it to see if that's my culprit. Someone please put in some solid recommendations. SU9 is now essentially unplayable with the 737 on approach. It's like this in the FBW A320, but maybe an average of 5 FPS more. Ridiculous.



          EDIT FOR ANYONE WHO SEES THIS: My problem was due to toolbar pushback. I must've tried everything to fix the problem, and some random guy on reddit mentioned that toolbar pushback was causing a memory leak. Removed it from community folder and BINGO! Problem solved. No more FPS issues anymore<3

            I have the same thing, but during cruise and generally after 3 or more hours, fps will drop from 40 to 15

              That's exactly what happened to me the other day did 4 1 hr short hauls then 1 5 hr long haul and below 10k I was down to 5 fps and couldn't even pan or switch views

                Jakub-

                We have had a few users report similar results to what you are describing. Statistically it is an insignificant number of users when compared to the entire size of the user base, so at this juncture we are not thinking the problem is internal to the 737.

                That being said- we are collecting data, because we can often find patters between user experiences and that can lead us to offering recommendations on how to mitigate the issue.

                If you'd like to help in that effort, head over to technical support and provide them with a rundown of your experience, and screen captures of the settings you have established for your sim in terms of graphics and AI, etc. We can then add these to our system to see if patterns evolve that point us to potential solutions.

                Often for things like this, we wind up having a user discover something such as "I have X hardware and if i set Y setting to Z it kills my performance." We can then share this with the platform developer and with you.

                There are also occasions when this data might reveal something about the airplane- and indeed a few folks wound up on our beta team for stumbling into just such an obscure scenario with our 777 a decade ago. Patterns matter- and this is why we collect data.
