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.

    Heading Bug Too Fast

    I hold keys down buttons on the joystick to increase or decrease the heading bug and it rotates clockwise or anticlockwise.
    It would be good if Pmdg could slow down the Heading bug speed. It moves too fast.
    On the G1000 the speed is pretty much perfect.
    Please slow down the rotate speed on Pmdg 737 for the next update.

    Trouble is there would certainly be complaints if the HDG rate of change were decreased and it took longer to change by 180 deg. There are several dozens of complaints here with the slow MINS adjustment. My solution is to use another set of buttons/switches on my controller where one control is the fast HDG or ALT change and the other one is a slow change. I do this with scripting using AAO and it's just a matter of slipping a WAIT: instruction into the script in the appropriate place.

    The V/S window was a unique case. No matter how clever I got with the UP/DN scroll knob I was still jumping at times by a lot more than I wanted to. I finally solved that one by instead of assigning left or right clicks to the UP/DN action to instead using the mouse wheel UP/DN and now I can precisely adjust the V/S rate. That one took awhile to figure out LOL.

      So performing a u-turn is not that common right 😁 However turning 1-20 degrees is very very common. If I hold down the joystick button it is much to fast. I pretty much have to resort to not using the button and go with the mouse wheel hovered over the dial. Not the best. I hope Pmdg can slow it down. Half the speed or 40% should be much better.

        It's pretty common to make major changes to HDG during preflight. Petja below has the best response, and why I use AAO.

      The problem lies with the input repeat rate that is dictated by MSFS and cannot be changed. If you want more control over how these inputs get parsed, you’d need to use an addon like FSUIPC or Axis and Ohs, where you can fine tune exactly what the effect of a controller input will be.
