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.

    Prop Engine Sound Effect

    When sitting in the plane getting it ready the sound effect for a prop aircraft starts playing in the cockpit for no reason. There is no other plane near me and it only does it with this plane. Why is it doing this, and how does one stop it because it's annoying.

    I've never heard this at all, but then I have all traffic turned off. What airport are you sitting at , or doesn't it matter ? I feel it may be an addon scenery glitch.

      Do you have the WYMF5 from Carenado by any chance? We had a similar report and this was found to be the reason for it.

          We are not sure why this is happening. You are only the second person reporting this. The other user that had this issue had to manually clean some files as well as he told us from the Carenado plane. Not sure whihc ones though

            Hi Martin,

            This is a very strange issue that you are having! In order to understand the issue more clearly, do you mind recording a video of the problem please. Recording videos are very easy - just press the Windows key + G and you can make a short video of your issue - then upload it to dropbox or a similar alternative and then we can have a listen to the issue.

            Thanks for your help!

              Sorry, have been away for a while, I could do that but it's very random occurrence, usually sitting on the ground doing all the prep stuff to fly the plane. If you go to external view it stops. I will remove the Cerenado plane (I barely use it) to see if the situation persists and if it does try and capture it, probably a phone video though which would be quicker to grab it.

                Does it sound like a washing machine out of balance? I had this yesterday sitting on the ramp getting ready to go and I do have the WYMF5 from Carenado.

                I may have a video clip.

                  To me it sounds like a prop plane, I thought maybe some DC6(?) effects had been added by mistake into the plane but it's definitely a prop plane sitting on idle next to you even though there are no other planes around.

                    Legacy Audio bug from a few sim updates back. All planes using legacy audio need an update after Asobo broke it. Mainly effected Carenado planes but some others using the legacy audio system were also effected such as the Big Radials Goose (which has now been updated and fixed.)

                    Uninstall/remove the offending planes until they are patched to resolve the issue. WYMF5 is one of the effected planes.
