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.

    [09MAR19] Update published for all PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies II Operators

    Captains,

    We have just published v3.00.9329 of the PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies II for FSX, FSX-SE, P3D v3 and P3D v4.

    PMDG_744_BOE_4.jpg

    This update is **primarily** driven by the need to update Prepar3D v4 users to a v4.4 standard that includes the use of PBR rendering on the external models. Obviously, since this is a Prepar3D v4.4-ONLY function, it is not present in either Prepar3D v4 or any of the FSX platforms.

    NOTAM FOR ALL PREPAR3D v4 USERS: As we have been warning for some time, you will need to maintain your Prepar3d installation on the latest update commencing with this update series. If you are already updated to P3D v4.4, but after updating the 747 you notice that the engine pylons are black, and/or the aluminum engine intake inlets or wing leading edges are black in color, this means you must still update your P3D v4.4 CONTENT, not just the CLIENT. Lockheed Martin's initial instructions to users suggested only updating the CLIENT was sufficient in order to use PBR, but in recent days that has been determined to be inaccurate guidance which we anticipate they will update shortly.

    Since we were pushing out all of these updates, we did have some general cleanup that went on around the product, including items listed below. As usual, our change list is not inclusive of ALL changes made, as we did do a bunch of work in some other areas that wasn't clearly documented during the build process... Mostly just small bug cleanup.

    PMDG 747-400/8 QOTSII **CHANGE LIST** - BUILD 3.00.9329 (Released 2019-03-01) [ View Issues ] ================================================== ========================= - 0007523: [External Model - Liveries] Build 9318 PBR Engine Pylon Textures (jbrown) - resolved. - 0007520: [FMS - Route/Legs Pages] Forced WPT Sequencing minimum distance (emvaos) - resolved. - 0007470: [EFB - Performance and Computational] Runway slope (custom airports) is ignored in Landing calculations (mfrantzeskakis) - resolved. - 0007469: [EFB - Performance and Computational] Runway length of custom airports (OPT landing) is set to 0 when LDA is entered and field length is no entered (mfrantzeskakis) - resolved. - 0007413: [FMS - Functionality Problems (General)] IAN app intercepting the LOC/FAC HDG will sync to course automatically like an ILS (emvaos) - resolved. - 0007465: [EFB - Performance and Computational] OPT-Landing: "Anti-ice not allowed below 10C" message should not be displayed when NNC is selected (mfrantzeskakis) - resolved. - 0007464: [EFB - Performance and Computational] Wrong label for NNC speed in Landing-Enroute page results when a NNC with a 0 ADD REF input is selected (mfrantzeskakis) - resolved. - 0007463: [EFB - Performance and Computational] Selection of Autobrakes in Landing-Enroute page not retained when changing OPT page (mfrantzeskakis) - resolved. - 0007457: [EFB - Navigraph Charting Functions] Some airport names appear incomplete, starting with a "-" (mfrantzeskakis) - resolved. - 0007456: [EFB - Navigraph Charting Functions] Some ground airport charts are not automatically added to the chart clip after route setup (mfrantzeskakis) - resolved. - 0007449: [Virtual Cockpit - Geometry/Textures] Registration Number lighting at Dawn (vscimone) - resolved. - 0007441: [Virtual Cockpit - Geometry/Textures] BCF Wiper Blade length (vscimone) - resolved. - 0007409: [External Model - Geometry] Cockpit window tint (jbrown) - closed. - 0007508: [External Model - Geometry] Landing Gear does not dim the landing lights (jbrown) - resolved. - 0007482: [FMS - Performance Pages] PERF INIT page Fuel quantity can not be set manually above 162.0 (kg) (emvaos) - resolved. - 0007474: [Virtual Cockpit - Functionality/Click-Spots] Small light leak in the gear lever housing (vscimone) - resolved. - 0007451: [Virtual Cockpit - Functionality/Click-Spots] RAT Activation near Wiper switch (vscimone) - resolved. [17 issues] We have a few more items that did not have time to be adequately tested prior to this release, and with some luck we'll have those to you in the next week-or-so. Updating your PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies: To update, simply run the PMDG Operations Center, then click on the wheel at the top-right. The page that will display is the updates page. The rest should be self evident! Enjoy your weekend!

                To the couple of you reporting trouble:

                Grab the log file and attach it here so we can take a look to see what your hang up is?

                c:/Users/<account name>/AppData/Roaming/PMDG/PMDG Operations Center/Updater/pmdg_updater_log.txt

                To save time, delete the file, then try the update, THEN send us the new file. Will keep us from having to scroll through years of accumulated data...

                    Rob, should we sent it through support? Or we just post them here?

                                                I was having the issue with the 747v3 until I remembered to run as administrator. That solved it. Hope this helps.....

                                                  thanks Robert and team for all of your work.

                                                  will we need to redownload the liveries to take advantage of the PBR?

                                                  Grab the log file and attach it here so we can take a look to see what your hang up is?

                                                  To save time, delete the file, then try the update, THEN send us the new file. Will keep us from having to scroll through years of accumulated data...

                                                    Hello Robert!

                                                    I did fallow the instructions to update this amazing 747 software, at the end; under version only 748 updates, 744 did not update. I managed to fixed it by starting from delating only whole 744 file pack and re-installing it again then I did run the update via OC. it works awesome to see the sun refracting on the metal! what a beauty machine!!!!!!!

                                                    Regards,
