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.

    Unable to climb past 10k

    Hi guys,

    777-200 set up to take off as usual. Take off goes as expected, altitude is set for FL350. However, at 10000 ft, it goes into a negative angle of attack and refuses to climb any higher.
    Does anyone have any ideas of the cause of this?

    Cheers

    are you on a SID that has a 10K feet restriction? what is the exact parameters?

      Good question, but no, there was no SID with height restrictions. Every flight is the same, the aircraft gets to 10,000ft and does not want to go higher despite there being nothing from stopping it. Exact parameters are difficult to define, but it is a regular occurrence.

        Negative AOA:

        check if it works if you press F5.

        if it does and if you use/d FSUIPC to assign an axis to the flaps lever delete the whole FSUIPC.ini. The PMDG 777 and 737NGX totally screw up when you do this. FSUIPC will extend the flaps to full in the background but the visual model (and the cockpit) will show the correct flaps position as demanded. Its hard to climb at full flaps

          What altitude is assign in the FMC?

          In autopilot it will climb to the assigned altitude setting in the FMC regardless of what is dialed into the AP console. If there’s an altitude restriction on the SID it will start climbing after passing the waypoint with the restriction provided the altitude in the FMC is higher.

            i struggle with your notes ...... i must refresh my reading of the FCOM / FCTM to understand what mode you are "describing"

            & what is the AP console you mention.

          It is almost a 100% chance that this is FSUIPC related. Try what Marc said and I suspect the problem will be fixed.

            It's very likely FSUIPC as others have said. But instead of deleting the whole ini file, try removing the flaps assignment first.

              Or you could copy/move the .ini file then delete the one in the modules folder just to see if that fixes it. If so, then I would agree it’s FSUIPC (as others have mentioned). If not, you can revert back to your old .ini file and try individual changes.
