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.

    Hard stutters but otherwise smooth performance

    Hello all,

    This is my first time posting here, but I've been using each 737 variant since release. I've been very impressed and have had zero issues minus one, which I've overlooked until now.
    It's not super distracting and I've done probably 30 flights spanning from 1-6 hours with no CTDs. But whenever I fly the 737, every so often I'll get a hard stutter on MSFS. What I mean is that the application will freeze with the exception of sound for about 5-10 seconds. This only happens in the 737 (each variant does it), and it happens about every 10 minutes of use. Has anyone else reported this issue before? Any known fixes? Admittedly I don't prowl the forums here much, except maybe once every hour to see when the 900 drops.

    Appreciate any insight!

    Similar posts abound aplenty.... most common solution is to empty your local cache if you are using that.

      I had a similar but not identical situation yesterday ...Flying some cargo ops in the -800BCF from the new KMEM custom scenery (can't remember the dev but available from Orbx) to KATL. Midway through the takeoff roll, after the 80kts callout but before V1, I had 2-3 hard judder/stutters of about 1-2 seconds each. After that, at the Rotate callout, pulling back the yoke did nothing. I was absolutely stuck on the runway. I immediately hit the brakes, put the throttles into full reverse and ended up through lights at the end of the runway in a field. I have MSFS's dumb crash detection turned off, fortunately.

      On a lark, I went to the FS Actions - Ground Maintenance and replaced the tires and brakes, serviced the hydraulics too just in case. Then I used GSX to teleport me back to the start of the runway and tried again. This time, the plane accelerated as normal, rotated and climbed out perfectly. I hade a delightful and uneventful 45 minute flight to KATL (with a 128 knot tailwind at one point!), then made an utterly beautiful ILS approach and landing on RWY 8L at sunset.

      It's those crazy sim glitches that can really ruin your day, especially if you don't have something like GSX that can teleport you around the airport, or they happen during short final and mess up your landing after a long flight.

        I have read that clearing the rolling cache might help

          Are you referring to the rolling cache or something else? Please provide instructions if it's something else.

          I too have begun getting sporadic lag spikes like OP reports, but the only change since has been the gsx deicers update.

          Do you use GSX, Trever?

            I do indeed use GSX, however I've been having these spikes since release which was much before I purchased GSX. I have also tried clearing my rolling cache, and while that improves frames in general, it did not fix the issue with the 737.

          I don't know if it'll help but I had a similar problem and resolved it by disabling Steam's GameOverlayUI.exe [32].

            When I was having the stutter issue, I came across this article which fixed all my graphics issues getting a fairly stable 30 fps now.



            Here's another link that was just published. I have not tried this but looks promising.
