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.

      Had flickering on the PFD FO side before the update. After the update, I'm getting flickering on both the FO and Captain's PFDs. Any remedy to this or there's nothing we can do until there's an update on Asobo's side?

        First time today for me after the update. BBJ. After a safeing the flight and loading it again the PFD stopped flickering but then the ND started.

          Same for me. Never had it before the update. And now it’s there. I didn’t change anything else, and don’t fly any other planes.

            Hi everyone, yep same here and started doing it today, had been working alright with update WU9 but all of a sudden it just started for no reason. Only updates I've seen happen are xbox app related on MS store for pc or a small external MSFS update via steam which was not very big in size yesterday. Forgotten to mention livery used is a Virgin Australia via Flightsim.to site. I've noticed there is an update in the app for 3.0.20 and well give this a try.

              Started happening on the CA side today. The FO side has been doing it but I figured it was because I was sitting diagonally to it so it was rendering in weird. The flickering I get is from the the upper left corner to the lower right corner, and everything to the right side of that flickers black pretty rapidly. Started when I initiated pushback through the FS Actions menu, although I think that's just coincidental.

                  Has anyone found more clues as to what may be causing this? It's getting really annoying.

                  Like so many others here I have also experienced this problem. It occurred for the first time today.

                  It is nothing to do with the Ambitious Pilots' pushback tool as I do not have this installed.

                  I flew last night without any problems whatsoever. I wonder if it is connected to the lights.... My flight today began in total darkness so I had to turn on all cockpit lights. However, as dawn and daylight happened and I turned off all of the interior lights, the problem did not go away.

                  Cheers

                    Agreed, and I don't believe it has anything to do with FPS slowdowns over time either.
                    So far all the evidence points to Asobo alone.

                    As has been stated many times and Asobo themselves have admitted, the issue with the fps slowdowns and flickering is theirs.
                    That will be fixed in the next MS2020 update.

                    Edit: Well...hopefully!

                        I'll guess I'll report that it is happening to me too. Randomly pilot or FO. Never both at the same time.

                            Guess I’ll join the party. Never had the issue prior to latest patch. Now today my pilots PFD is having a party. Not changed anything in settings.

                              Last 2 weeks were working fine, yesterday FO PFD flickering, today all working fine again.
                              Unfortunately It's 'the nature of the beast' until Asobo fixes it.

                                Flickering both sides in the KLM livery. Very off-putting!

                                  Getting the flickering on both PFD's. Going to give me a seizure.

                                    My PFD's are flickering,
                                    indeed I know not why;
                                    It seems to happen randomly,
                                    as I take off into the sky;

                                    They flicker when I'm sleeping;
                                    They flicker when I'm awake;
                                    They flicker when I take a leak,
                                    so fix it for goodness sakes!

                                    Just wanted to give you all a chuckle!😉

                                      Captain's PFD flickered like this on two flights today on the regular -700. Using the included Air Canada livery in the Ops Center.

                                        Started to happen to me yesterday, F/O side. Today it is happening on the Captains side.

                                          Same issue. Updated to version 24 and now flickers on Capt and FO PFD. Keep reading its an asobo issue. Wasnt happening before recent update to most people. Sounds like a PMDG issue to me.

                                            Unfortunately because something which is intermittent happens at a particular time for you, it is no indication that is the reason for it.
                                            Asobo themselves have admitted the problem is caused on their side and not PMDG.

                                              And since the latest update 3.0.24 I also have two flickering PFDs :-)

                                                Ran into a flickering PFD for the first time today, the left hand captain’s.

                                                Latest version of the 737 being used, the only difference I’m aware of between no flickering up to yesterday and flickering today was updating the aviaworx CDU software referenced elsewhere on the forum before today’s flight. Unfortunately I’ve no idea whether that’s relevant or just a coincidence.

                                                Moving the PFD to the ND and the ND to the lower display and all worked. Just the one display that seemed affected.

                                                  Just tried starting two flights, one with the aviaworx software running and one without, flickering PFD both times.

                                                  So whatever has started this irritation off for me seems to be unrelated to the aviaworx update.

                                                    Let me add my name to the chorus. Same issue - completely random either pilot or FO side, sometimes none.

                                                      As I mentioned earlier, this only happens to me when loading a saved flight. But could get rid of the flicker by rebooting my pc. Just an observation that could help.
