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.

    Thanks for sharing that Jon, sounds like an easy trap to fall into.

    Hello all! This has now been resolved and here is what I did. I contacted PMDG support and worked with Chris. We did some back and forth and when we started looking at Simbrief and flght plans, we noticed that there were two types of files being saved in the C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Fli ghtSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Com munity\pmdg-aircraft-737\Config\Flightplans directory- A .rte and a .pln. Once we deleted the .pln files the problem did not return. So if you are experiencing this issue, try that first and see if it fixes it. I have done nearly 10 flights now in a row without this issue returning! Thanks again to PMDG support for working so quickly on this also!

    Just an update you all who were reading this thread. This seems to be a random occurrence and is still happening. I can sometimes get 3-4 flights in a row to multiple destinations without it happening, and then other times it cashes when selecting the FltPlan Request. What is happening is the sim freezes and nothing can be done except going to task manager and closing the app there. Even if I reboot and do nothing but start a new session, go in the aircraft and select the flightplan again it will freeze, and sometimes not, even with the same parameters, parking location, flight plan etc...So I don't think its a corruption of the flight plan as it works at other times, but whatever script runs that is started by clicking the FLTPlan Request button.. I've tried clearing out the folders where SimBrief saves to, clearing rolling cache, switching to different 737 models between 600, 7800, and 800, all of which exhibit the same random behavior. I've seen others post with this issue but not resolutions as of yet.

    Just tried it, works for me OK.

    Did you upload the flightplan to the correct folder? For Store users it is C:\Users\YOUR NAME\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimula tor_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\packages\pmdg-aircraft-737\work\Flightplans

    Start FMC by loading departure and destination in RTE page 1/2.
    Then press flt plan REQUEST. You should the see Origin and Destination and a SELECT key. Next you will have REQUEST in Highlighted and you push that key.
    You get a message ROUTE UPLINK UPLOADING.
    When it is done you get an AVTIVATE prompt. Press and EXEC.
    That's it.

    Hi Mr Randazzo!
    One of the first things I thought it may be was a flightplan issue or corupted flightplan. LOWS-EGKK. So I tried a new flightplan KSAN-KOAK and had the same issue happen. I tried setting up a different startup profile in the FMS to On Runway and others and has the same issue. I then uninstalled the 737 from windows Program manager, made sure I deleted all PMDG 737 folders from the community folder and performed a fresh install. I created a new flightplan with Simbrief, loaded up the 737 and the first time after entering the DEP and ARR airports and pressing Flt Plan REQUST it worked. I changed the startup profile to COLDDARK, closed down MSFS, restarted, loaded up the 737, and went to input the flightplan and this time after entering the DEP and ARR airports and pressing FLT PLAN Request it locked up again...Let me know any additional info you need and Im happy to help!

    Jon-

    Can you drop your flight plan and some details into this thread?

    We can try to duplicate it and see what we find.

  • CTD when pushing the Flt Plan request on FMC

    Hello all! Recently I get a CTD when trying to load a flight plan after hitting the Flt Plan Request button on the FMC. I've tried loading different startup modes (Cold Dark, Taxi) but it still occurs. Anyone else ever have this issue? Its repetitive, and I am up to date on the acft version as well as Navigraph AIRAC.
Working...
