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.

    Documents for DC-6

    I bought the DC-6 add-on a couple of years ago and downloaded to an older computer. I recently downloaded DC-6 again from the PMDG site, and installed the files for Steam use on a new PC. I have been unable to find the tutorial and POH that came with my original download. I don't see those files in the extracted files folder. Any ideas on where I can get these documents? I scrolled through all the DC-6 posts and didn't see anything related to this, so apologies if it's already been answered. Thanks for any help.

    Hi
    I use P3D V4 and my DC-6 documents are found in the opening page of the sim. There is a "PMDG" folder at that location and everything is in there. I assume this folder was installed when I installed the airplane.
    Hope this helps

      Warren, thanks for the response. I'm using the Steam version of FSX and I don't get that when I log in. The only thing I see is the standard opening screen where you can choose free Flight, Multiplayer, etc.

      When I installed my PMDG products initially, all the docs downloaded into the PMDG folder in Explorer, but now that I've installed products into my Steam account, there is no resident PMDG folder on my hard drive.

        I never used FSX or FSX Steam so I'm at a loss to suggest much. Would it be possible to reinstall the entire package to a folder other than the sim and then examine the contents for a POH etc?
        Hope this helps a bit at least

          It seems that the new installer is pretty insightful and it automatically detected the Steam installation of FSX. As a result, it never gave me the option to select an alternate destination directory. I think I would have to have FSX installed on my hard drive, but I've tried that install before and am unable to activate product since it's no loner supported by MS. Guess I'll have to wing it. Couldn't even find documentation on the PMDG website. Go figure.

            Hi again
            Not sure if I'm permitted to do this but if it's only the POH you are looking for perhaps I could attach it to an email. There are several parts but the machine is complicated and the manuals help.
            Let me know

              No you are not permited. These are copyrighted files and should not be shared among users even if the own the product.

              The documents should be under the PMDG -> PMDG DC6 -> Flight Manuals folder under your sim directory,

                This inquiry was much more difficult than it needed to be. During my most recent installation of the product, the installer didn't even describe the location where the files were being placed. Obviously the game files are on Steam, but I never would have known to follow that long directory path to find the manuals. I have a separate Steam and Steam Library folder which I searched and of course came up empty. The read me file in the extracted files folder wasn't of any help either. There has to be an easier way for other schmucks like me who haven't before installed products into Steam that weren't purchased on Steam.

              Hi Chris
              That's fine. I appreciate the information. I believe the problem is that this folder is not present in Mr. Martins installation.

                I have FSX-SE installed and PMDG manuals are in exactly the same place relative to the FSX root folder as they are for non Steam versions. For the DC-6 this should be:

                FSX\PMDG\PMDG DC-6\Flight Manuals

                The FSX root folder can be tricky to find. On my system it is here:

                C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\FSX

                  Warren and Kevin, thank you very much for all your input. It turns out, Kevin, that the manuals are located in the path target you described. I really appreciate your input on that since that information doesn't seem to be documented anywhere else. Good to go now.

                      Glad that everything is resolved. Now if only this beast would work in P3D V5.
