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.

    Binding mixture levers in p3dv5?

    Is it possible to bind the mixture levers to my x52 hotas? I would prefer to control all mixture axis with the same slider/button
    Sincerely,

    You can do that in the P3D control assignments. But it's not advisable to use a physical mixture axis when you're flying PMDG jets.

      The mixture is not a slider in the DC6. It is a "switch" with three positions. ON , Auto Lean and Auto rich. Not sure if this can be mapped on the actual mixture axis.

        I have buttons so I dont need to use axis. I just thought it would be axis. I am using FSUIPC for my controls. What are the variables Im looking for?

          I use LINDA to assign switches to all my DC-6 controls: starter, primer, boost, supercharger, landing lights, etc. I also use some rotary encoders on my Virpil throttle to control the cowl flaps, mixture, carb heat and a 5 position switch for the engine selector.

          You can find out more about Linda software in this forum: https://www.avsim.com/forums/forum/424-linda/
          The module for DC-6 can be found here: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/5...c-6-available/

          The only thing i couldn't assign with Linda is the water injection switch (variable is not included in the DC-6 module).

            I've heard about Linda before. Is it similar to FSUIPC, and is it compatible to that and spad.next?
            Edit: I understand from reading the introduction in the manual that it is related to fsuipc. I still wonder if is it compatible with spad.next? It kinda sounds like they do the same thing.

              Hi Andreas,

              Linda is compatible with FSUIPC, i use both. But Linda can only use buttons, switches, rotary encoders, etc and you will not be able to use joystick axes.

              With FSUIPC you get more commands that are normally hidden and can't be found in the P3D control assignment menu. With Linda you need to install the base software and also a dedicated module for a specific aircraft that you plan to use, in our case the DC-6. Then you will get a list of commands that are custom made for that specific aircraft. If you follow the link to the DC-6 module that i posted above, you will find a list of commands that can be assigned for the DC-6.

              For example i don't think you can control the PMDG DC-6 carburetor heat using default commands in P3D or FSUIPC, but you can do it with Linda. Even if you can find a similar command in P3D or FSUIPC, like the cowl flaps, if i remember correctly it will not work in the PMDG DC-6 so you have to use Linda for that.

              Sorry, i don't know Spad.next so can't compare it to Linda.
