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.

    DC6 MSFS Stutters and loss of power

    Today I tried doing a short flight in the DC6, I am using SU10 beta, and had never experienced any serious issue with the DC6, however, today I experienced 3 huge issues that made me turn off IVAO and cancel the flight:
    1- I lost power in the GSN430 twice, I restarted the flight and reloaded everything again, but halfway through taxi I lost power and the system would not turn on in any way. I am familiar with the real GSN 430 and run out of ideas, so I am inclined to think this is a bug.
    2- I experienced a LOT of stutters, I see there is another thread mentioning this, so it seems to be a general issue (https://forum.pmdg.com/forum/main-fo...0-dc6-stutters). Usually I am fine with small stutters, but these were so serious it was hard to even look around.
    3- Once in the air, while using my fellow FO, the plane lost power to one engine after the other, I tried with a new flight and the same happened, so it seems the automatic FO is causing the engines to explode during climb.

    I thought these issues might have been caused by the SU10 beta, but a friend of mine has mentioned suffering from the same 3 problems.
    Should I reinstall the plane or has it become unflyable for everyone? Looking forward to your replies to guide me in the right direction! I really love this plane, before the 737 it was my daily drive, so I really want to fly it again.

    Enrique,

    yes I think this is a case for a reinstall. The loss of the GNS and the engine issue sounds like you had popping circuit breakers behind you. I have this almost always after a sim update. Probably a complete reinstall is required.

    For the stutters: I found that DX12 works really badly with the DC6, I always have to revert to DX11 when I fly it. If you‘re on DX12 I suggest to try that, too if the reinstall doesn‘t resolve that as well.

      Thanks for your reply Ephedrin, I agree, I will reinstall and see how it works.

      In what regards the stutters, I am using Dx11, they only happen with the DC6, I get perfectly smooth 50-60 fps in the 737, but I will check if the reinstall helps and get back to this thread to report my findings

        Well, EphedrinI just reinstalled and checked the plane:

        Good news:
        1- No stutters now, it seems the successive updates were causing this issue
        2- The GNS 430 does not turn off

        Bad news:
        I found out what is causing my engines to flame out, it is because I run out of fuel at a ridiculous rate, this issue happened as well with SU5 and I have no idea how to solve it, even with a full plane I run out of fuel in less that 45 minutes. Video:

          There are several files and folders hidden deep in the appdata that need to be deleted. It‘s annoying but for now the only known cure. I can‘t help you with the details as I‘m on a bbq but I suggest you submit a ticket at support.pmdg.com, Chris will give you the needed info.

            Thanks a lot for your insight, I managed to solve the issue by reinstalling, turns out the extra fuel consumption is sort of a anti-piracy meassure which was randomly triggering, now everything works fine and I am back in the skies! Thanks a lot for your help
