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.

    PMDG Operation Center livery install from PPT

    Good morning to all, I have tried to install with out success a livery from PTP, as I have always did. While it says the livery was installed, the directory never appears, nor the the aircraft config is modified. At the same time, installing livery from the normal livery library center works like a charm.

    PMDG Operation Center is up to date, version 2.0.1.2129

    If anyone has an hint, thanks very much, as it seems to affect all aircraft.

    Hi Cyrille,

    I just tried installing a third party livery from a PTP file and it worked correctly, the new livery shows in P3D and loads with no problems.

    Have you tried running OC2 as admin?

        If the OC reports it has installed the livery then it probably has installed it somewhere. Have you tried searching for the folder to see where it went. That might provide a clue as to what went wrong.

          It says it is installed but by doing a search using N454PA, 747-400F from Globe cargo VA, on the C, E, F, G drive, it doesn't find anything

            Ok, I have found out, but cannot explain why. I have redownloaded the repaint from Globe Cargo VA web site and extracted it to replace the PTP file that I had and discover that it was not the same size. I then replaced the PTP and installed it and then it appeared correctly.

            I think I will have to redownload all of them as I have the same problem with the 737 and I have not tested with the 777 yet.

            Thanks for your help, yet I do not know why it didn't work.

              No problem Cyrille. I'm a member there too and I've never had a problem with Globe Cargo VA downloads but be careful as they have multiple file versions for different sims. The NGX repaints are particularly confusing as they list NGX and NGXu paints in the same section, you have to go by the date of the file. You might have indadvertently downloaded an NGX repaint and tried to install it for the NGXu, or vice versa. Similarly it's easy to download for the wrong version of 747. 747-400 and 747 QOTSII are listed separately but it's easy to select a file from the wrong list.

                Hello I need help, I have a downloaded .ptp file for a Caribbean Airlines 737 from avsim and every time I try to install the file in the operations center it keep giving me error of failing to install. package includes: ptp file

                Installation instructions:

                Requires the PMDG NGX
                Unpack the .ptp file to a temporary location such as your desktop
                Install using the Livery Manager utility provided with your PMDG NGX
                and you're ready to fly!


                These instructions do not work, I am currently running P3d V5.1 and the latest pmdg op ctr

                  NGX is not the same as NGXu. You have the Xu. The repaint is for another product.

                  If I might suggest, it pays to open a separate thread, rather than tag on to a sort of unrelated one.

                  Welcome to the forum.
