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.

    Wiper Animation low fps!

    The wiper animation in the 737 is very choppy and low fps, hope this will get fixed

    Which 737?

      Almost all animations are low fps, except the ones they have already fixed (like the yokes). Hoping they will get to the rest eventually. The gear leaver is the one that bothers me the most. It's giving 2004 feels.

          This is the PMDG 737 forum, so it's about the 737, all variants I guess

            Which PMDG 737 variants have you tested?

            Video showing the problem ?

              I don't have a problem, didn't test anything, don't use the wipers anyway since they don't wipe.

                I did short tests on the PMDG737-600 and -700.

                All looking good.

                  That is subjective. There are multiple posts across many forums about the low fps in animations in the 737. Maybe you think it looks good because you haven’t seen the alternative.

                    All fast movements have the FPS issue. Use a handheld camera to film propellers. Depending on the sim fps, the screen fps and the setting the developer chose it can look like a fluid movement or a stuttering animation of 3 positions. I don‘t know if this can be resolved by other techniques but I have seen these kind of issues across many games and all above addons for flightsims.

                      I agree that the animation is very low fps (the gear lever as well is very noticeable), but what kills my immersion the most is that wipers don't actually wipe. And it's a real pain to see outside when it's raining heavily ...

                          No thanks. I have other important things that take up my time. How about you read the countless threads available on the topic instead.

                            What you are referring to is an entirely different thing. That is a consequence of rotational animations that simulate very fast rotations. Things like gear levers, trim wheels, yokes, wing flex etc should not exhibit this behavior if properly animated.

                            A video would show the problem you are reporting on your setup.

                              And my conclusion is that if you are unable to see it on your own system then a video from me won’t help so I won’t waste my time. Some people just don’t notice these things and I’m not here to argue with you over whether or not the wipers and other animations are of low fps. It’s been widely discussed here and elsewhere regarding everything from the wing flex to the gear leaver and even acknowledged by PMDG in some areas. It’s not a unique observation made by me.
