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.

    My FO PFD flickers, not seen it happen on CAPT side yet

      Are you guys using Nvidia Geforce Experience ? See what happens if you disable overlays. I have not had this happen to me yet, and i don't use Gforce Experience at all. I also run the sim in HDR10.

        I don't have GE or any overlays and I have the flicker.

      In general, such things.
      If you load the simulator and perform the first flight on the PMDH, then the PDF does not flicker.
      If you start the next flight without leaving the simulator on the desktop, then the PFD starts to flicker.
      There is an easy way out.
      If you do not want to exit the simulator to the desktop, then you need to change the plane to any other than PMDG and boot up at any airport. Then exit the flight.
      Next, we take our favorite 737 PMDG and start our flight. So the PFD will also not flash.

      I hope the developer will notice my observations.
      Sincerely...

        Sorry, but this isn't correct. It flickers on my initial flight as well.

      Weird...
      I did this procedure (my post above), and for the third time (after changing the third plane), the PFD began to flicker again.
      There is only one way out so far - after each flight, go to the desktop.

        Going to desktop doesn't fix it either. It happens on the first flight as well.

      It looks like PFD flickers only some models/livery. So far I found BJJ N88TY PFD is no flickering, but in United livery N27734 it does!

        I also had the cpt side pfd flickering on my last flight. It was a clean first load flight.

          Exactly. It has nothing to do with initial flight or second flight or exiting, then restarting (at least not for me) -- it flickers regardless.

        #37
        anyone had any luck finding the commonality here? i thought it was livery related at first too but it's definitely irrelevant.

          I have it now as well. I completed 5 full flights without any problem and tonight on the 6th, as I was rolling some knobs on the AP before engine start, the flickering started. Mid flight already and it keeps going on and on.

          I have the pushback toolbar installed and was using a new Fedex livery from flightsim .to. Second flight with this livery though.

          Best regards.

            I noticed it starting after pressing Heading Select on the AP panel just before taxing.

            PMDG settings, Performance section and give it 15 FPS and no flickers any more.

              Doesn't solve the issue. No matter the restriction flickering is still happening - though it does seem to slow down the rate potentially.

            #41
            I was one of the first people to get it downloaded. I loaded all three versions that night for the first time. But I didn't have a chance to taxi out until tonight. First time moving the plane...same thing as reported on the pilot side only. I also noticed at one point it was just stuck with the black diagonal half with nothing moving around.

              Same problem here, seems totally random. One flight it is Captain’s side, the next flight it happens on the FO side. Then I may get a number of flights where it doesn’t occur. Numerous liveries used with flickering present.

                Has anyone had this happen when not being on multiplayer in MSFS? I did two flights of 1000nm with multiplayer off and I have not seen it happen and I had it with every flight prior with multiplayer on.

                *By no multiplayer I mean you spawn in with multiplayer disabled or with a group only flight with no other 737's in close vicinity.

                  Now that you say it, it happened to me on the 6th flight and actually it was the first time flying b737 with live multiplayer. The rest of the flights that I did where "group only" and nothing happened.

                  I don't really play multiplayer at all (just use live traffic) and I still get the flickering.

                same problem... on both screens first and then only on the first officer... was using the PMDG livery and had the PushBack toolbar installed

                    I just installed the latest NVIDIA driver 512.77 and PFD flickering in all 737 types has gone (standard liveries).

                    - I start the simulator, we flew ... I connect everything.
                    PPD does not flicker.
                    I'm finishing my flight.

                    - Without leaving the sim, I prepare the next flight plan, load, connect ... etc.
                    PFD flickers!
                    - Exit the simulator to the desktop.

                    - Reloading the simulator.

                    - I choose a flight plan (I don’t change the plane, the airport too). I press the fly button.
                    - The flight starts to load. I'm starting. PFD does not flicker!
                    - I'm leaving the flight.

                    What noticed. I have flickering on the cargo and passenger versions of the aircraft (when re-creating a flight without exiting the simulator to the desktop).
                    With the business version of the aircraft, everything is ok. Even when re-creating a new flight without leaving the simulator.

                    I apologize in advance for my English. This is not my native language. In some places I had to use the great Google Translate.

                    I hope this information will help the developers. Thanks again for the plane! He is tough!

                    Oh yes!
                    Livry not installed. None. No tug, no add-ons.

                    Same behaviour for me but only on Cargo and BBJ versions! Tried to do the above experiment and noted that with sim reebot the flickering disappear.
                    Cheers

                      Try the following action.
                      After selecting the airport of departure and parking (gate), do not immediately press the button "ready to fly", until the initialization of systems, about 3-4 seconds (you can monitor the speed window (IAS/MACH), the value will first light up in the form of numbers 000 (MCP panel), and then fade, then press the button "ready to fly".

                      Another update - I was running with no multiplayer at PASY (middle of nowhere). No flicker until the exact moment I selected real world weather. I then noticed it to be connected to the lateral movement of the aircraft somehow when I was doing 360 turns on the runway. See video:

                                  Have it on the FO Side PFD, pretty much exclusively, switching the PFD to another screen fixes it.

                                  No other mods installed, apart from world updates.

                                        Hello, I have not received this glitch before today, and here are my very non-scientific observations.

                                        It does not happen(to me) if I select a PMDG panel state where the IRSs have been pre-aligned. I have done about 6 flights selecting and have not had this issue. But today, I loaded in and decided to do a full cold and dark start-up. I messed up starting my left side IRS and continued to start my right side. I started my left side once the aligned light became unilluminated. Once they were both up and running my left PFD was glitching. My friend has his right screen only glitch, this could make sense if my nonfactual assumptions are correct since naturally, your left IRS will align a few seconds before your right. So whatever IRS aligns last is the PFD that will have the issue and if you spawn with the IRS already aligned then it doesn't happen. But... this is all a theory, a plane theory!

                                            I have a similar observation. First, some others:
                                            1) Removing Toolbar Pushback did not solve the issue (expected)
                                            2) After updating NVIDIA drivers to the latest release, no more flickering

                                            3) If I wait to enter IRS Pos until prompted by FMC, no flicker. (still need to test more, as I tried this behavior change after updating my drivers)

                                              I do not currently have the most up-to-date Nvidia drivers. I will check that after my flight
