Hi WilsonYou have a problem with your center of gravity (or CoG or CG:-)). You should abort the take-off. Redistribute your pax and cargo load to get the CG within limits and do another try. Techniques on how to redistribute your weight is dicussed in the below threads:http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=searchhttp://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=searchhttp://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=searchhttp://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=searchhttp://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=searchhttp://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=searchhttp://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...ing_type=searchWhich by the way was found during an advanced search for this problem! ;-)Hope it helps,

Wilson,It appears that the PMDG software moves the ACLoader stations, or anything manually set, to a center point (payload is set to 0,0,0). That completely screws up everything. Until PMDG allows ACLoader to actually work, please don't use it.

Some users will not know the entire history of how PMDG refuses to let ACL work with their product. Why? Does it hurt their ability to make a profit? Of course not. PMDG, I think you need to check your attitude at the door and allow developers to work with your product. I use about five different utilities every time I crank up FS, including ACL. I fly your PMDG 737 almost 90% of the time. What difference does it matter to you wether I use your load manager or wether I use ACL. ACL has profit/loss recording and writes the ZFW information to the kneeboard which is the MAIN reason I use it. I can't remember the ZFW from time to time to save my mind. ACL simply is a help to me. Please, as a customer to PMDG who is interested in the 747-400 and future products, I am asking you to work with the developer of ACL and put the ego to the side for the betterment of your customers experience.Wilson HinesUAL006VHQCCSenior Vice President, Corporate Communicationshttp://virtual.united.com --------------------------------------Proficiencies: PSS 747,777, A32x, CS 727,PMDG 737-700---------------------------------------FS2002|ActiveSky|FSRealTime|FSBuild2|FSNav|Jep SimCharts2|ACLoaderhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/checkcapt.jpghttp://heavylhc.com/images/av/anna.jpg

Lately, when I am lined up on the rwy and press the screw to activate my takeoff thrust I have a message come up in my ADV Display which says something like "out of specs, aircraft cannot function properly" - pardon the loose paraphrase.Anybody have any clues?I have been setting T/O thrust to the default, as per T.M's manual.Wilson HinesUAL006VHQCCSenior Vice President, Corporate Communicationshttp://virtual.united.com --------------------------------------Proficiencies: PSS 747,777, A32x, CS 727,PMDG 737-700---------------------------------------FS2002|ActiveSky|FSRealTime|FSBuild2|FSNav|Jep SimCharts2|ACLoaderhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/checkcapt.jpghttp://heavylhc.com/images/av/anna.jpg

Wilson-In addition to the users of this forum being unclear on the history of why PMDG won't let ACLoader be compatible with our airplane:We at PMDG are unclear on the history that you speak of....Is there some grand conspiracy you have created in your mind that you should probably explain so that we can set the record straight for you?Please let us know.....

http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...=8108&mode=fullI am not trying to be an arse here. I just think the darn $40 bird should work with other software.That is all I have to say. I wish you would please just look at the problem and consider this issue.Scott made the remark to me on his forum http://forums.simflight.com/viewtopic.php?t=19019that you refuse to talk to him. I find this interesting to say the least.

Scott!Could you please elaborate on your findings? I'm using an external load editor and can manually change any loads as long as I don't fiddle with the datum offsets.As far as I know none of the PMDG shipped software changes datum offsets for station loads.Just like to get your comment clarified! :-)Cheers,

Mats,I don't have any PMDG aircraft, so I can only go on what my customers (and your customers) have sent me. What it looks like is happening is that the payload ACL sets in multiple stations is set as the total payload weight at a single point, either by your software or other process. This was from three customers, and was a little while ago (this Fall I believe), so I don't know what is happening right now.I have offered Robert copies of ACL, so hopefully y'all will be able to test. Anything you can tell me about what is happening is appreciated and we can work together if anything needs to be fixed.ACLoader doesn't care about the reference datum position, since it will offset the load accordingly.
