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.

    Cockpit freezing

    Hi, i was on final and for an unknown reason, all cockpit buttons frozen. I couldn't change anything (lowering gear or flaps, autopilot app mode etc) Even though i depress buttons nothing worked.
    Any idea. (that was B737-700 version) Thanks.

      I have noticed something recently that is similar. On A few occasions I haven’t been able to click on anything in the VC, even though the sim continued to run normally. The only fix was minimizing P3D to the taskbar and then maximizing it again. It’s not PMDG related since it happened in another aircraft as well. It also occurred while using different nvidia drivers. I’m guessing it has something to do with a recent windows update. I haven’t been able to reproduce it. Very strange.

        Did the freeze ever end?
        Did you have a CTD after some seconds?
        What did you do next?

          Hi, me too had a similar issue during my last flight, it happens after having worked out the flaps speed and landing data by my EFB...I got all frozen, just basic controls were working...(after landing I realized that I could have my cockpit views changed by using the p3d taskbar but all buttons etc were unresponsives)..I performed an ILS approach in LNAV/VNAV and later executing a visual approach being unable to set ILS freq on NAV radios etc..also my "fellow" FS2crew_first officer was "dead".

                Hi Real,
                it's definitivelt something linked to the EFB happened again, I had just finished to work out the landing speeds and I was filling them into my CDU when the views frozen...I can't say if it's an interaction between EFB, CDU or something else to cause them...
                Now i'm trying an autoland

                  When that's happens I lost my keyboard completely..only mouse inputs are recognized by the system (to lower the landing gear I had to choose a "jumpseat view) and clicking on the lever by the mouse ("G" key was locked...) for the same reason I was unable to deploy reversers...very strange..I've to understand the relationship between the use of my EFB and that issue (maybe a wrong combination at the wrong time, according to Murphy's law, among EFB, CDU view and something else i.e. FS2crew?)..I dont'know...

                    I think so because that was the first time that i use EFB during flight. I've made other flights without using EFB and i haven't had this issue. I'll try it again later on. Thanks

                      Make sure that if you have "pause at top of decent" set in the 737, that you try the "P" key.
                      I have notifications disabled, so I didn't cop on to what had happened.

                        I assume that if it paused at top of descent, you wouldn't hear any sound coming from the plane. In any event, not sure this would be the issue here since you're not dropping the gear or flaps at cruise altitude.

                          My immediate thought was, turn up the temperature !
