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.

    747 becomes unresponsive after few hours of flight

    I have problem with 747 after few hours of flight it wears of the course and its not responding on any input in MCP or manual flight. Yoke is moving but it doesnt move the aircraft. It will ascend and descend on its own throttle can be controlled only by F2 F4 it seems nothing cant be done to continue flight I have tried it twice and in about 6-7 hours this would happen. I am using latest drivers and it is clean install of P3D V5 (latest). I wasnt successful finding any tread regarding this issue so if you could please help me out. Also I did not have this issue with any other aircraft, but 747 is the only long haul in V5 that I use Thank you

    Are you using Active Sky? If so. try it without AS. If I recall correctly there have been issues with AS for P3D and the autopilots but I thought it would have been resolved.

      I did try that and it didnt change anything. I even closed the rest of applications and still the same problem. I will try once again without using saved panel state but this was never the issue for me

        Sounds like an issue I've had, rarely but I've seen it, that was resolved by deleting that particular panel state file and creating a new one from default.

          This occurred to me just now on hour 7 of my 13 hour flight. My Chase Plane, LNAV, Yoke inputs have become unresponsive on the PMDG 747-8i. I had ASP3D v5 active and just ended the app and relaunched it with no help. Has anyone found a what kind of bug this is?

              Anyone find a fix for this issue? I’ve uninstalled and reinstall the B747.

                I don't have any idea what your specifics are. Did you try the suggestion?

                    Might be windows putting controls to sleep when no activity is sensed for a long time.
                    Check power settigs and controls.

                      Elvir,

                      do you have any REX products running together with the SIM? REX Sky Force has been known to cause CTD and unresponsiveness after a few hours.
