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.

    VNAV data not shown on LEGS

    I am a newby to this aircraft - I, however, have been flying the PMDG 747. I have also completed the recent upgrade for the 737.
    I have been through tutorial 1 twice - each time after entering the PERF INIT data and pressing EXEC there is no vertical path shown in LEGS.
    I have doubled checked each of the FMC screens with that shown in the tutorial and can see no omission on my part.

    Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

    Could be several things... without knowing the step you are on in the tutorial I can only guess. Perhaps the route is not executed or the IRS is not aligned?

      Still no luck getting this going.

      I have noticed several things:
      Firstly the introduction manual on page 60 talks about a a Default panel state as well as Cold and Dark etc. The Default option is not on my "Panel State Load" options.

      Tutorial 1 on page 36 says the ND shows the the route. This does not appear on my ND - the switch is set to MAP and the range is set to 20.
      If I move the switch to PLAN the route does appear and I can step through it.

      As an aside, I have a subscription to use Navigraph. The system still says NAV DATA OUT OF DATE. The fmc_ident.txt has the following:
      [Ident]
      NavData=AIRAC-2011
      OpProgram=OCT08NOV05/20
      CoData=JEP-2011

      From the comment above, how is the IRS aligned?

      Any help would be appreciated.

        Default is not listed as a panel state on its own. To get the default panel state, you just have to make sure you didn't already set another one to as the default start-up state. Then when you load the simulator, it's already using the default state. As for the navigation data being out of date, check to make sure your simulator is set to the actual date. If you set it to a date outside of the AIRAC active period, you'll get that message. As for aligning the IRS, there are two IRS switches on the overhead panel. Make sure they are on NAV.

          Thanks for the input - hopefully I can now make some progress.

            I am seeing this issue on longer legs as well. It seems to be happening only with the BBJ models so far. I set up everything like I usually do, but the performance data on my legs page is blank. The fuel calculations are fine but that's it. So far the only way I have been able to fix this is to delete a waypoint from the SID.

            It might help others help you if you'd at least provide the procedure and deleted waypoint. I'm not sure I know how to try to reproduce what you are reporting, maybe I'm missing something.

              Okay I tested it again and it worked fine this time. It may have been something on my end.
