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.

    DC-6 Problems in P3D V4.5

    Ever since I upgraded P3D to V4.5 the AFE will not function in my DC-6. The AFE box will come up: but the sliders to the right of each checklist item are missing along with the small box down in the bottom left is also missing. I have re-read the Manual, uninstalled the plane 3 times (on the MS Control Panel), re-installed the plane, downloaded a new file from PMDG under My Account and installed it as well. The AFE will not function no matter what I do. I also have a problem with the plane going into and coming out of reverse properly. I have a set of PFC throttles that has also been re-calibrated: but the reverse still will not function properly. The AFE and Prop Reverse worked properly prior to P3D V4.5! Are other members having similar issues with the DC-6 in V4.5? Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. This is one of my all time favorite planes!

    Just did a flight to try and replicate, but everything works here. Then again, i did a fresh install of 4.5. Try uninstalling the DC6 and give it a fresh install.

      I'm not having any problems with it since the upgrade to 4.5, probably got over a hundred hours on it at real time. I'm also running 1903 and the latest nVidia driver.

        Haven't flown her in awhile but recently had a session in where I had something odd. I have the no GPS option selected and old radios gone and the #1 NAV/COM wouldn't power up. The ADF and right side #2 King were just fine. I finally resolved it by changing to a GPS option and back again to no GPS and problem solved. I think the way I was holding my tongue might have had something to do with it. Beautiful trip from Monterrey to Lake Tahoe.

              Also please do not hijack posts with irrelevant questions, better open a new post. To answer your question this is not possible. You need to buy the P3D version of the DC6.

                  Hi "ghost"-

                  May I suggest that you do a FULL uninstall including deleting the DC-6 folder under YOURSIM\PMDG. Then get yourself a fresh DL from your account and try again. If there are issues with changing GPS once you are in the VC, allow the sim to start, then select another option, let that load, and then go back to the option you want.

                  I'd urge at least trying the DC-6 with NO GPS... she's lovely to navigate with a chart and the Mark 1 Eyeball.
