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.

    PreparD3 4.5 will not start with PMDG 737

    I have an issue with starting Prepar3D 4.5 and the latest version PMDG 737. It's a complete new PC with up-to-date drivers etc. and first install PMDG 737, Chaseplane, UTL.
    After one week testing with/without addons, I conclude that this issue only comes after loading a PMDG plane in the 'Verhicle' menu of Prepar3D.
    Flying with the PMDG is perfect but after saving and closing down Prepar3D it wont start again. No issues with Prepar3D planes. I did things such delete and change the files like the Prepar3d.cfg file etc. but it is no permanent solution.

    Please help: Reinstall PMDG 737, Fix, Other ..

    From what I understand is that you save a startup situation with the NGX? This is a big no no and I believe it is mentioned at the introduction document as well. The proper way to start P3D is either in the select scenario screen with the default F22 showing and from there selecting the NGX, or if using a saved situation with a default plane and chnage to the NGX afterwards. Having a complex addon as a startup state will cause a lot of strange issues.

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for the quick respons. I did both ways. Most of the time I loaded the F22 raptor default and after that I change it to the PMDG 737. But I will check this again to be shure. I will come back to this later.

        I did some checks and of course better read the introduction manual (especially page 34). No issues anymore. The problem was that I saved my 737 flight and set it as my default flight.

          Maybe not the exact same problem, but when I start P3D v4.5 and select PMDG 737NGX in the scenario screen I get a black screen that remains frozen until I stop it through the Task Manager. This doesn't happen with any other planes (default, freeware, payware).
          I uninstalled and reinstalled NGX several times, no change. I know about and always start P3D in the select scenario screen with the default F22 showing and from there selecting the NGX.
          Any ideas to fix this would be appreciated! I miss flying this great product.

            Welcome to the fourms. Please add a signature to your profile in order to ensure that your posts are signed, real name first and last.. You were advised/agreed to this requirement when initially establishing an account. Thank you!

              Try clearing your shaders and cfg file,restart pc disable temporarily your AV and any addons then load f22 first let it load in p3d after restart sim and try load NGX.

            If you are using REX EF you need to disable the debug mode on their program. Please make sure to setup a signature with real name first and last as per rules

              I had exactly the same problem. In P3Dv4 I loaded PMDG 737 as my default , the same way as I would in FSX , only to find P3D will completely corrupt . I reloaded P3D and loaded PMDG 737 as Chris Makris suggested . The programs has been stable and trouble free since

                  It's there. This forum software is a little weird that when you make the post initially, it won't show up on your end, but when you reload the page, it's there. We'll still see it, though. You're good.

                    Problem solved for me as well. I did clear the shaders, disabled EF Debug and Logging, and selected the NGX as advised above.

                    I hope I got the signature thing correct! If not, let me know what I am doing wrong.

                        Having the same problem. Can someone give a step by step instruction on exactly how to clear Shaders and disabling
                        EF Debug and Logging. I'm not exactly a computer wiz.

                          Figured out how to clear shaders and completely deleted Rex EF and the 737 is working fine. Now if I reinstall Rex EF where do I go to disable the debug and logging?

                            Does REX have a support forum? Do their products have user guides or manuals?

                          Go to Manual Mode. Select Settings (little gearwheel, lower left panel). You will see the Enable Internal logging and Debugging checks. Disable them.
                          BUT, just today I went to use my 737, and guess what! The black screen is back. I've gone over all steps and no way can I get it to work! I am seriously considering scrapping this PMDG pain in the a**!
