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.

    Reverse Thrusters

    I can't get the reverse thrusters to work properly. I've Goolged, watched videos on You Tube and researched it here. I've tried the F2 fix. I've tried FSUPIC Decrease throttle and throttle cut. You name it - I've tried it. At best I can get them to move up to 1st position but never all the way up. Also trying to get out of 1st position is sketchy at best (they move down then bounce up again).

    I went to file a support ticket but I needed to register first. Filled everything out and got the message that an email had been sent to verify. Waited a few hours and had them resend the email (this was yesterday). Still no email. Got a bad feeling about PMDG - like leaving you on hold until you finally hang up.

    My stick is a Saitek X52.

    Thanks for any help.

    I've got no problem if I keybind it on the 'hold button', it's more annoying than just push and release for toogling, but it works for me. I can select as much reverse thrust input as I want

      I've assigned button 7 on the throttle to Hold Throttle Reverse Thrust" and it never goes full open - just stuck at the first position.

          Would you share a pic of your FSUIPC please?

          Thanks.

            From my FSUIPC7 ini file:

            [Buttons.PMDG-600]
            1=RA,20,C65966,0 -{THROTTLE1_DECR}-
            2=UA,20,C65967,0 -{THROTTLE1_CUT}-
            3=RA,21,C65971,0 -{THROTTLE2_DECR}-
            4=UA,21,C65972,0 -{THROTTLE2_CUT}-​

            Edit:
            On my setup I check this FSUIPC "repeat" box
            To cancel reverse just slightly advance the throttles.

              Check your spam/junk folder, if you use an email manager like thunderbird or outlook maybe access your provider directly with a browser. PMDG sign up mails are fully automated and use to work normally. If you can‘t get it to work you might start a new topic in the general forum with a clear title to make them aware and help you out. No bad feelings needed, really, their customer support is top.

                Still doesn't work. My joystick throttle is reverse axis if that makes any difference.

                  My Proflight Saitek yoke / throttles uses FSUIPC7 Axes for the two throttles and buttons to activate reverse thrust.

                    Engines have to be on for the reverse thrusters function to work and they must be at IDLE for them to engage. Or this how it works for me

                      They are on. I wish it were that simple.

                        Throttle 1 Decrease and Throttle 2 Decrease on the Reverse Thrust levers of the TCA Boeing TQ work.

                          I found the 737 doesn't like the conflict of a reverse axis and using F2 to select reverse (the Fenix airbus has no problem with it). I removed the reverse axis assignment, using the axis for speedbrake, and reverse works fine. I don't use FSUIPC.

                            Hi Kevin,

                            I unplugged my X52 and just tried to get the reverse to work through key board commands but no joy. I left a message with support so I'm hoping to hear back.
