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.

    Latest Win10 Update Chaos?

    I've been away from my sim for about a month. In that time Win10 has updated twice (at least). Today I returned to my 737 and a lot wasn't working properly. For example the FMC denies knowledge of waypoints in the database, though Navigraph and Airac is up to date. I attempted to 'fly' to a plan, but the a/c kept busting the set altitude and speed and wouldn't hold a course. Several switches were inoperable in virtual cockpit view but were operable in other views. The HUD opened but wouldn't close. I should've tried my other most capable aircraft (Majestic Dash) - but too tired/fed up at the moment. Has anyone similar recent experience, or any ideas? Has the latest Win10 update messed up something?

    I've not experienced any problems with the Windows updates. Check your windows sound speakers properties to make sure enhanced sounds is not checked. Other than that I've not seen other reports of problems other than the normal day to day chatter.

          There’ve been many problems with the September updates, mostly related to driver compatibility issues and random changes to settings. I lost my Ethernet and wi-fi functionality for the better part of a week. Have recovered it by updating drivers but still have to uninstall the Ethernet adapter on every startup, then uninstall and reinstall the drivers. Google the September update and you’ll get an earful - though some of these problems seem to happen on every update. It’s a bit random whether they affect a particular system. For whatever issues you’re having, try updating your device drivers and do a complete uninstall/reinstall, not a repair. Also uninstall the device itself in Device Manager and restart before you change drivers. Hope this helps.

            Thanks everyone - it looks like I've some work ahead. Thanks to Win10 too...(not) I deleted and reinstalled the whole PMDG disk (for the 737). I also did the same for my Majestic Dash. On restart everything was (more or less) normal but my test flight (with both a/c) from Innsbruck to Salzburg showed a new problem. Accelerating down Rwy 08 I became aware that the scenery buildings on the lhs were 'floating above the ground! This did not happen with the other a/c so it seems PMDG specific. Any further suggestions, please?

              I dread these window updates. The anxiety of hoping it will not mess anything up kills
              me.

                To be fair to Microsoft - the root problem of my recent Ethernet and Wi-Fi issues was a failing router. Cured since I replaced it. It seems to have been presenting unresolvable addresses. It was an odd problem and hard to diagnose since it didn't affect all my devices uniformly - the iOS devices were generally OK, while the Windows 10 devices struggled. Reinstalling drivers seemed to force valid addresses through. So it wasn't just the router - something was going on in the ecosystem between the router and Windows 10.

                I can happily report that my connections are now running smoothly - so much so that I was able to download the latest Windows 10 updates - which immediately broke my search functionality.

                The joy continues...
