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.

    Hmmmm, I'm confused here. So you are saying that PMDG is restricted by their own copyright, from distributing their own intellectual property in any manner that they deem fit or neccessary? Interesting.

      Our copyright is also bound to other copyrights from Boeing for example.

      By the way, please change your signature to your real name as per forum rules. Thank you,

        Fair enough on both counts.

        Perhaps a simpler solution is to reach out to the other copyright holders, explain the situation and get permission to implement one of the above solutions. It's not as if at this point it would result in lost revenue. This would seem to be a more elegant solution to this dilemma and in the end, less time and money for PMDG to get some of these folks with legacy products back up and running.

        I know I have fs9 still running on an older machine just so I can use the MD-11. I would love to move my Fs9 to my new machine but there is little point in doing so if I can't use the software, which to be perfectly clear is still viable IF you can get it installed, that I technically own.

          Guys ,
          Do we have and up date on this problem yet. I like some others have many PMDG products when trying to reinstall FS2004 I have the 747 loaded but none of the rest of my products. I have a few MSGS products but I hate the sim, I have PrepD3 v5 installed but it locks after a few minutes in to the flight and have ordered Me Fs 2020 and intend to get a new gaming computer just for flight swimming so look forward to getting my PMDG products all loaded. It is surprising as all other products which I Havnt been able to load I have managed to raise support tickets and virtually overnight my problems have been fixed. That's my beef.
          Stay safe dudes in these times

            The more current products were more easily solved compared to this one. It already took them several months before they solved the issue for FSX, so I don't see FS9 being any faster to solve.

            So you're getting help via support ticket for the legacy products correct?
