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.

    737ngxu and rudder pedals stop working

    After installing the Honeycomb Yoke and Throttle, my Saitek rudder pedals stopped working int eh PMDG 737ngxu only. I am using the profiles on the Aerosoft for umm page but can’t seem to get anything to work. I changed axis in P3D, deleted the config and FSUIPC.INI file. The rudder pedals work fine with a default aircraft and the PMDG 747. Any ideas? I figure it has got to be something in the 737 profile for the Alpha and BTQ.

    "I changed axis in P3D?" What does that mean?
    Did you verify that the rudder pedal controller is assigned to the rudder and brake axis in P3D? What's that got to do with FSUIPC?

    I don't have the Honeycomb stuff... didn't like the looks of it and there seems to be a couple of problems every single day with this stuff. No thank you.

    That aside, your controller is just a controller. It has axis assignments. The axis assignment to roll, pitch and throttle should not change yaw and brake, if it does change it then that is your problem.

      I have both Alpha and Bravo with the new profiles from Aerosoft and have no issues. There is nothing in the profiles for Honeycomb that can affect another vendor rudder pedal.

        Never had any problems with Honeycomb. The quality is outstanding, they are the best controls I‘ve had in 20 years. I just don‘t use the profiles. But that shouldn‘t make a difference.

        Scott, I could imagine that you have windows energy management options set which deactivate your rudder pedals (the USB port where the pedals are connected). Do the rudders appear in the game controller settings in windows?

        FSUIPC could be the reason if it had assigned a controller number to the device and then windows had changed ITS UID for it. Yes, in 20 years I have had that once or twice ^^ I also lost rudder in some aircraft when I loaded the F-22 before the actual airplane. Not PMDG though.

        I would try two things: deactivate the Honeycomb bridge in the addons menu and then deactivate FSUIPC completely (addons menu). If one of them reactivates the rudder you know where to look for the problem.

          Thank you Chris and Mark. Honeycomb is having the PMDG profile person for the 737 look to see if there is anything that could conflict. I will try the other suggestions and report back.

            So I tried several things. I removed FSUIPC from my computer. I ran P3D with the default Piper aircraft and the rudders worked well. They are new rudders from Saitek. Then I tried unplugging the throttle and the rudders froze. Then I unplugged the yoke but had the throttle connected and the rudders froze. Then I unplugged both throttle and yoke and the rudders froze. I had the Honeycomb profiles set to default the whole time. I then deflected the P3D config and rand the program again. The rudders still froze.
            I did notice that while PMDG was initializing, the HoneyComb AFC Bridge was trying to load the settings for the yoke. Could this be the problem? I have been told not to interrupt that process or bad things can happen. Just a thought?

              No idea about that bridge, this assignment manager is in my opinion a completely useless and obsolete tool, there is nothing about that yoke that can‘t be done with the commonly available setup possibilities. I‘ve done everything with FSUIPC (axes) and LINDA (buttons) for years and it has never caused trouble except things that I had caused myself. In my experience freezing controls come from the PC itself though and not from the sim or addon aircraft: USB drivers, energy management, anti virus (Kaspersky caused my CH yoke to lag and freeze years ago). Have you checked if the pedals are still recognized by the windows game controller calibration when they freeze?

              but of course this afc bridge can cause issues too.

                I’m very frustrated with Honeycomb and Saitek. Neither company has really given me anything other than the obvious to address the problem. I mostly fly the PMDG 737 and that has yet to work with these products and profiles. The rudders do work in the PMDG 747. But there are other wonky problems with the throttles and the reverser. I might just have to go back to my Saitek yoke and throttle because at least I was able to get off the ground in all aircraft with those products connected and sell the Honeycomb stuff.
