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.

    All,

    If your update to Sim Update 5 was around 140GB that means important files from the DC6 were deleted. It seems that there was a bug that most probably affects only the MSFS Beta users due to which instead of downloading only the needed files for the update it re downloads all files and this leads to some files deleted.

    The plane will seem operational in the sim but you will face issues. If this applies to you please remove the DC6 from the add/remove programs and then install it using your installer.

    Thank you.

        Hello Chris, downloaded the Steam version. just 40 GB and after that the new PMDG OC including 1 new livery from my favourite airline Northwest.
        All went well, except.....everything in the DC-6 cockpit highlights Blue but is U/S eg. inoperative. I thought the inflight Checklist from Flightsim.to was the cause and de-installed it accordingly.
        Restarted the computer to let all the bits and bytes fall into place, but no solution. Wandering if there r others with the same issues?
        I will investigate further, but at this time I'm only able to use my DC-6 as a museum artifact.
        Thanks for the update though !

        Discovered Mouse Operation was destroyed, had to go to Control Options.
        So it seems, no worries anymore. You can scratch my entry from the Technical Log...

          For reference, I had many issues, althought my game (store version) updated normally, had to reinstall DC6 to get it in working order.

            Same here, my update was the standard 42 gigs, but yesterday I had to reinstall DC-6 because my flaps weren't working at all. Since the reinstall, everything is great though.
            Regards,

              I have the store purchased product. I'm pretty sure I updated the DC-6 through the OC AFTER i downloaded and updated the Sim with update 5. When I ran the before start procedure via the AFE, it got to the radios and then stopped and the volume dial on the GNS kept spinning. To reinstall, do I use a new installer from PMDG web site?

                I heard it's a known issue. You can atleast get around it if you swap to radios for few second and then back to GPS.
