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 followed what the NOTAM said and restarted sim on top of that and the sounds are just different. Can anyone confirm?

      It really made me happy to see that you are DCS addicts as well AND to see praise comgin their way as well. A lot of the DCS community suffers from bad entitlement issues, and I am always happy to see their hard work recognized!

      Thanks a lot for the update

        Hi Jose,

        Thanks for the feedback - I added a new grind sound that was clashing a bit with the bass sounds - the bass sounds on takeoff were redesigned a little to accomodate the new grind sound. There is now more sub bass than bass actually - so with a sub woofer they will sound more rumbly.

        However, you have a point - in the next update, I will add back more of the bass that you were hearing before - most likely it will be even more bassy!

        Coming soon!

          Is it normal that we expect the rumbling sound normally audible only at the front of the engines. We now hear them even at the back of the device. Is this normal?

        Can't get pop-ups to work with right ALT and left mouse click. Do I need to change something in MSFS control config?

          You could, as a double check, bring up one of the default aircraft with a glass cockpit (Cessna / with floats) and test the key/mouse combo to see if it works.

              Hello PMDG, thank you for your wonderful work. I would like to know if you plan to add the raindrops and the ice on the portholes?

                Is there a way to disable those tints on the cabin window? Do those even exist in real life 737s? I’m not a fan

                  Window tint wasn’t supposed to be there, a stray reflection profile was inadvertently applied and has already been restored for next update.

                Is it possible to get a refund for this product? Microsoft/Asobo will not be putting out any updates to late July which means we will be waiting until September for fixes to rudder and flickering displays. We already have the next plane up front and showcased with the 600 and some of us don't even have a working plane. This update is leaving a bad taste in my mouth. Not only was my critical issues not fixed but plenty more critical issues with sound and visuals have also been added. Sound mixing has changed. Window tints and other changes to textures and what not. I'm all for making things better but visual and audio downgrades compound my already jarring issue with no rudder control.

                That said I was actually happy with the plane as it was and was not complaining about stuff but after one update here we go with diminishing returns and onto the next product cycle already. Just not impressed at all.

                  This cracks me up. So many contradictions and mis-applied or missing logic.

                OK I am loving this thing! Yes, I vented on another thread the other day. But that was mostly about the Cockpitmaster FMC interfacing. It's still quirky, but I get it working faster than I used to. Also, I still haven't had a successful ILS landing. But that is mostly because I am an airliner noobie still learning all the buttons and switches and protocols. On the plus side...I haven't crashed it so far...and I have made 3 solid landings. Yes, in real life they would revoke my license for those landings, but they were all fun and relatively easy. So....at least I can get the bird in the air and on the ground now. Everything else will come eventually. Thanks for all the updates!

                    I got the update fine.. One question.. When I move my mouse over the PFD's and the FMS I get the finger on the mouse location but when I click it does not open up the PFD or FMS into a new window. What am I missing?

                      It's right alt plus mouse click by default. But if you created custom profile for it like I did you might have unmapped everything so you need to remap right alt back to New UI window mode command

                    I don't think you can get a refund once you've activated it. They said in another post that they were still trying to fix the rudder issue. Have a look here:

                    Right before your post, Jason responded saying the window tint was inadvertently applied and would be fixed in the next update, as per this post:

                    https://forum.pmdg.com/forum/main-fo...965#post194965

                    Lastly, just because they've continued working on another plane doesn't mean they aren't going to keep updating the -700, so I guess I'm not sure I understand what the issue is. I realize you're having issues with the plane, but it's not like they completely stopped trying to fix them altogether and all they're doing is working on the -600.

                          I knew that, but for some reason it doesn't work. It does with default MSFS planes such as the C 172.

                          Hehe. It perfectly encapsules my emotions when I see two posts about the same topic, in the same thread, only one post apart from each other, from the same user!! (one is now deleted, thankfully). The sentence is by the way best pronounced with the voice of Nicko MCBrain.

                              It’s a graphical/formatting glitch. It’s like 1,535 files or something huge.

                                I added an assignment for NEW UI WINDOW MODE to the mouse control (left click). That way you can open the popups with just a left click, no need to press right alt as well. Feels much more natural.

                                Is there any way to control the size of the popup wiundows? They are far too large for my screen resolution.

                                      so a strange think happened to me twice, while cruising in autopilot, suddenly the A/C banks hardly to the left and into a step dive. I have to switch the A/P off and flight it manualy, and if I turn it back ON the same happens. While flying manualy I had to trim the yoke way to the right to level it off. So I switch to external view and noticed the rudder half to the left, and a slightly tap on the pedals made it to the original position, and then I could turn the A/P again and fly steady and level.
                                      I wounder what did happen as I never touch anything with A/P ON. Was it a PMDG or Asobo issue?
                                      Did the same or similar problem happened to anyone?

                                        Look for a hydraulic fault. In my experience it fails far too often and delivers outcomes just like you are seeing.

                                        Well...I found the issue, one of my cats lied by the keyboard and rested his head in the key assigned to rudder by default, and pressed it!... and the A/C went crazy (obviously)! I dind't know about that assignment... I deleted it and it solved the problem, aparently!

                                      That's the problem, it doesn't save it. Not even temporarily. It's almost useless as it is. Especially the FMC CDU popup which only shows the screen.

                                        You can mention it here in the forums, and someone from PMDG might see it amidst all of the noise. However, if you want to be absolutely certain that someone from PMDG sees it, then you'll want to report it through their support portal. If you haven't used it before, you'll need to create a new account there.

                                        Also, don't forget to include your full name on your posts (see rule # 1 at the top of this page), which you agreed to do when you created your account. We would hate to see your posts disappear because you aren't following the forum rules.

                                          Wait. So resetting your sound settings fixed the problem that you were having with your lights? That's... strange.

                                            Good evening,
                                            As a person who works with Boeing 737 aircraft on the daily basis, I have to say I am a little unsatisfied with how are Wing Shake is simulated during pushback, taxi, and in flight phases of flight. It seems to me that no matter what the aircraft is doing (Pushback, taxiing, hard touchdowns, going over uneven surfaces, turbulence), the wing doesn't react appropriately to these events. Instead, we get a rapid small up & down bursts every couple seconds regardless of what the aircraft is actually doing. This is very noticeable during taxiing, when the wing makes rapid up/down bursts every 4-5 seconds in a repeated very noticeable cycle; then the wings would be motionless when you go through bumps/ uneven surfaces, when the cycle is in-between it's bursts and the wing is static.
                                            I am unsure if this already had been said before, but I thought I'd put this here incase it hasn't been brought up yet.
