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.

    777-200 CTD FSX

    Hi all,

    I am trying to play the PMDG 777-200 on FSX:SE, however I frequently have issues with it CTD. I’ve tried using it at different airports, both add-ons and FSX default, however it either CTD or starts “bling”ing noises, shortly before CTD. The error message I receive afterwords is ‘your computer has run out of memory’. I’ve lowered the settings as low as is reasonable, to avoid it looking like a game from the 90s, however it still develops the same issue. I also use PMDG 737-800 and aerosoft A320 series without a single issue. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    What other add-ons are you using. The problem with FSX is it's a 32-bit program, so it's more prone to running out of memory, especially if you're using a lot of add-ons.

      “Out of Memory” issues are caused by the way FSX and FSX-SE handle your computer’s memory and are well known about. I suggest you visit the Avsim Forum, because there is a useful guide there which might help you to stop them from happening so often. Here’s a link to their download and information about it:-

      Before you spend any more of your hard earned funds on FSX-SE addons you need to ask yourself if it is going to be worth further investment and also what you want to get out of your flight simulator experience in the future. Flight simulators in general have moved on with several 64-Bit programs available and they do not suffer from the FSX/FSX-SE memory limitations you are currently experiencing. It is also worth bearing in mind that several third party developers have already stopped supporting or developing for FSX/FSX-SE. The only downside is likely to be the cost of the new software you will need and whether or not your computer and/or controller hardware etc will also need updating.

      Any decision is obviously a matter for you, but I suggest you research the various main contenders on the Internet - including MSFS 2020, P3Dv5 and XP-11 - before deciding which simulator platform fits the bill for you. They are all different, although P3Dv5 is very similar to FSX in many ways and you should be able to use some of your FSX-SE addons with it; but not all. MSFS is the latest simulator platform to be released and although it is still in its early days the scenery graphics alone make it a very serious contender; especially now that PMDG have just announced the release of their first MSFS aircraft for it; namely the DC-6 which is due out at the end of this week. Good luck and I hope this is helpful.
