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,

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.

    Lvar list NGXu


    I try to get some instruments on a second screen via air manager, is there a new Lvar list for the NGXu?

    In the SDK folder it seems that it is the same documents as the NGX?

    Hi Robert,

    I was in contact with Sim innovations about this a few months ago and they told me they won´t be updating the PMDG plugin for the NGXu as they say there is not enough demand from customers. I too would like to have some instruments working via Air Manager and its a shame that we paid Sim Innovations good money but now they won´t update their plugin to accommodate the latest PMDG version.

    Maybe if you as well as others who would like the plugin updating also write to Sim Innovations then it may encourage them to update it.

    Please let me know if you have found or find some sort of work around too 😀

    Best regards,

      Hello Henry,

      I am currently using air manager for the eicas and fsxpand for the flaps. The eicas is a little bit offset from the Pmdg values, also only N1 works during startup. The overhead and cdu I use with Aviaworx.

      The Pfd and Nd I undocked but if I undock more windows my frame rate begins to suffer that’s why I need other Eicas solution

      I will ask Sim Innovations again! Too bad there is no plugin for the most popular airliner around!

        Hi Robert,

        Yeh I also use Aviaworx for a touch screen overhead and the FMC on an ipad. I have been working on converting the Zibo MCP on Air manager to work in P3D on a touch screen with a Knobster. I just about have it all working for the NGX but when I tried it with the new NGXu, no luck due to the PMDG plugin! Have you tried looking at the Lua Script for the EICAS, maybe you just need to change a few things? From what I´ve learnt, the Air manager panels with the NGXU are able to read from the sim with some slight changes to the "Variable _subscribe" but cannot send events due to plugin compatibility.

        Best regards,

        Henry F


          image1.jpegimage0.jpeg Hello Henry,

          Thank you for your reply,

          I asked again but they said again they won't make a Ngxu at Sim Innovations.
          However as a experiment, I hooked on monitor to my onboard Video Card and put the PFD an ND on that one, and now my fps is much better!
          So now I have PFD and ND and EICAS.

          Having over 40 fps now and tomorrow I will get a DVI to HDMI cable to put the other monitor with the EICAS also on the onboard card, so my main GTX 1070 card doesn't have to be bothered by the undocked windows and be busy just with the main sim.

          So I am quit happy now!
