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.

    Every other aircraft is okay.
    Calibration fully carried out.
    Software up to date and Firmware also.

    FSX or P3D?
    Throttle controller axis assigned via FSUIPC or directly into simulator platform?
    How are you loading (default or saved flight, using old panel files from previous versions?) the PMDG aircraft, do you get the 20 sec intialization?

    So many questions.

      Hi Dan, Thanks for helping.
      It is P3Dv4.5 sorry for not mentioning it.
      I am always using a new flight. I find that these addons don't like saved flights at all. It is of course the NGX for that sim. The PMDG 777 is also playing up too. I do get the 20 second initialization on both. I have FSUIPC and it is registered but are using the P3D settings.

        I'm still trying to understand the problem, which as you described is "throttles not working."
        Start a new flight... does this mean you are loading with default state where engines are running? Does "throttles not working" thus mean that when you move your throttle controller the engines do not increase N1? Do the throttles in the VC Cockpit animate and move or not?

        Open P3D Options menu, select controls, select axis and calibrate your throttles. Using two or one throttle? Confirm they are assigned to Throttle and not something like Throttle 3.

          Also, what are you using for throttles.

            Dave, follow Dan's excellent suggestion, but unfortunately you still haven't said what your hardware controls are or what settings you are using to control the thrust levers. If Dan's advice doesn't work try using FSUIPC to map your throttle control instead of using the default P3D settings and see if that works.

            Incidentally, I have not had any problems with my saved flights. probably because I only keep them until something changes that might affect the saved scenario, such as an update to the aircraft, scenery files, live (instead of historical) weather etc etc. I will then re-save the scenario when I am happy with it until the next change or update is received.
