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.

    GSX menu disappears when loading 737 NGXU Info only

    Hi PMDG Team.

    I posted this on the FSDT forum as well so this is Info only. It appears after the latest 737 NGXU update that the GSX menu disappears from the dropdown box when loading the NGXu. After loading p3d default airport with default aircraft (LM scenario) GSX is present. Then change airport - GSX is present - change aircraft to NGXU GSX disappears. I am NOT SAYING there is anything wrong with the aircraft but there appears to be a conflict somewhere. I posted this is the FSDT forum as well, but since this is an issue involving both products, you may be able to shed some light on this, or else someone may have a solution. It may have something to do with the VC++ distributable files??

    And YES AV is off and the entire sim pls LM directory incl. any pathways to addons are excluded from AV scan

    Not a PMDG issue at it relates to many other addon aircraft, it stems from the FSDT updates 6th/7th Feb. I doubt it is related to the vcredist either.

    It is not GSX either but related to the products couatl engine that supports all FSDT addons.

      Hi Stephen.

      Yes I am aware. Thals why I posted it Info only. Having said that, they may be some VC++ files which either development uses to conflict. You may never know. FSDT is pretty quick in responding that their SW is ok and it has something to do with other Addons. hence the post as awareness. I mainly fly PMDG that is why I flagged it

      Best regards

        Does it also happen if you DON‘T preload another aircraft? I don‘t know why you do that anyway, it‘s not required at all. Just don‘t save any addon aircraft as default flight and you‘re good to go with any complex addons available.

        I should add that my couatl has all sorts of issues, often with PMDG aircraft, but it doesn‘t disappear when I load the NGXU.

          It’s well known that GSX and pmdg services don’t get along so I always disable mine.

          I do not have problems with GSX and PMDG. I have had a few in the past but it has been quite a long time since those and they had nothing to do with PMDG.

          I actually am having a hard time understanding how loading a PMDG aircraft can cause a problem with bglmanx.dll (you cannot blame couatl since it is a exe and runs outside of P3D), unless one is loading a PMDG aircraft on top of itself and that causes problems in the simulator platform that can effect other modules.

            This is very odd. Try only using GSX for marshalling and pushing back and then use PMDG services for loading and etc.

              Gents,

              A few users (I'm picking on Danny here) are spreading invalid/inaccurate/misleading information regarding the PMDG/GSX connection.

              So please help me out here:

              1) There is no incompatibility between any PMDG product and GSX. Anyone who tells you that there is- is ill informed and/or just flat out telling you a mistruth.
              2) PMDG 737NGXu doesn't know anything about GSX. It doesn't disable GSX. It doesn't have any conflict with GSX.
              3) PMDG Ground Operations is an animation control inside our our products that knows nothing of GSX and is unaffected by it.
              4) You can use GSX with any PMDG product.

              Some folks have keyed into the fact that we do not open our product up to certain ancillary functions of GSX, such as fueling or deicing. This shouldn't impair you using GSX with our products, and for fueling we provide you with plenty of functionality in that regard.

              So- to repeat- there is no conflict here. There is no functionality problem. Discussion to the contrary comes from folks who would like for there to be some legendary battle between PMDG and the maker of GSX. There isn't.

                Robert in all due respect you are making me sound like some sort of a hacker criminal here.Im not spreading invalid/misleading/inaccurate information regarding pmdg and gsx connection.This is going way back when even 747 was out that lot of folks had problems with gsx services and the 747 ones.I only go by what I hear from the members here and even at that time no pmdg staff member stepped in and corrected me.By you using me spreading inaccuracies and misleading words like that make others here think I’m some sort of bad person and spreading other bad stuff around here.So please choose your word carefully Robert as I consider myself a decent person willing to help anyone here if I can.Iam truly saddened by your words here.

                  The problem is with their installers nothing to do with pmdg as this is happening with other aircraft to but mr Humberto always blames the others for their horrible couatl program

                    Check your regional settings on your computer. It looks like somebody on the FSDreamteam forum discovered that there were no issues if the computer was set to English US. Any other setting seems to have caused issues.
