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.

    Rudder Issue

    Hello,
    I'm having rudder issues using a Thrustmaster T16000M FCS . The rudder is mapped to the twist grip, and it works for all other aircrafts, However, with the PMDG 737, the rudder starts to move, but it immediately "auto centers", making it impossible to control it. Any one having the same issue?

    You have multiple mappings on the rudder. What option do you have for the nose wheel tiller?

      The only joystick that controls the rudders, is Thrustmaster T16000M FCS . I'm using RUDDER AXIS ONLY. If I map the steering to the throttle axis. I can steering the plane via the throttle, but the rudders still have the same issue.

        How did you confirm no other assignments? Did you try clearing and reassigning?

          Yes, I verified all rudder related assignments, and even deleted the Keyboard to Rudder assignments. I also re-assigned the existing maps .

                  I was holding in that position to demonstrate I could control it. Here is a quick video to make it easier:

                    And again, the issue is only with the PMDG aircraft.

                      Same thing that I am seeing. Only rudder commands are mapped to my controller. Works fine on other planes, just not the 737.

                          I have the exact same problem with my fanatec pedals and the rudder axis left and right. Perfectly fine on all other planes, third party ones included.

                              I'm having the exact same issue, with my XBOX controller. The Rudder doesn't wanna stay in the position it centres itself immediately.
                              Yet, I still have full Aileron and elevator control.

                                    I'm still having the exact same issue with the XBOX controller, I'm really stuck and out of ideas on how to fix this problem.

                                      Same questions as above. Are you sure nothing else mapped? How did you confirm? What is the FMS options set to?

                                        Awesome! That worked for me. Thanks for your help! It's interesting that this setup worked for the other aircraft though.

                                          I just use the default MSFS 2020 controller controls as shown here and have not had this problem with any other aircraft in the sim. FMC is set to Rudder Axis only, but it I've tried with Prop1 axis + rudder

                                            Yeah, that does not seem to do it for the XBOX controller. That controller has “two” axis, the LT and RT triggers. I just spent 30 minutes trying different combinations and I could not get it to function properly.

                                            However, when trying your solution with just the LT or RT trigger, that one direction would work as it should.

                                              So try clearing both and reassigning.

                                                For those of us that we're using two different axis this doesn't fix the problem, I use my racing pedals with one pedal assign to rudder axis left and the other one with rudder axis right, and it work perfectly with all the planes except this one. Something is wrong with the plane and those axis.

                                                  That is exactly what the issue is. same with the XBOX controller, it appears that the rudder on the plane is only programmed to use the rudder on one axis, not two. because when I change the rudder control over to the left joystick on the controller it works just fine, the problem is that joystick is assigned to the aileron control, so it is unpractical to use that stick for the rudder. Although in my mind it does prove what you are saying, Dani.

                                                      So is there a fix for the rudder situation with Xbox controller? Or do we have to wait for a bugfix?

                                                        Unfortunately, I don't think so at this time. I keep checking this forum for solutions and the operations center for an update on the plane itself and so far nothing.

                                                        I hope this gets resolved soon because I can't fly the plane until it is fixed.

                                                          yes you can go into setting go to piloting and set the auto rudder to on so you can drive on ground using you left stick for now so when you fly and move the stick it also does rudder as well until fixed

                                                          I think someone in another thread said that they opened a support ticket and the PMDG staff are aware of the issue, hopefully, it gets fixed in the next day or two.
