PFD and ND gauges "sticking"

Recommended Posts

Guest danowat

Hi,I have just doen a test flight is the new 900, and I seem to have a problem with the PFD and ND gauges "sticking".Once the gauge has frozen, I need to switch veiws to get it active again, also whilst the gauge is frozen, the pop-up gauge shows the unfrozen state.Thanks.Danny Watkins

Hi Danny,I presume you are running with multi-monitor setup? If so did you check the MULTI-MONITOR support checkbox in the PMDG|Styles|Various menu? DO that and reload FS and try again. I'm sure you'll see the problem go away.Hope it helps,

Hi,Re-reading my original post, I dont think I explained it very well ;).It is actually the EFIS/MAP panel, both gauges freeze at different times.Once the gauge has frozen, i.e. its not updating any more, the pop-up gauge is still updating but not the gauge on the panel.If I change views the gauges on the panel will start updating again.I am not running a mulit-monitor setup, and my system specs are as follows.P4 3Ghz, HT, 800mhz busIntel 875P MoboATI 9800 pro with the latest Cat's1GB DDR RamCheersDan.

Dan,I had exactly the same thing happening for a few times with the 600/700 (have not upgraded to the 800/999 yet).Not only changing views, but also changing panels (e. g.from main to zoom panel and back) cures the issue.No idea how to solve the problem. But since it did not happen for the last week, I nearly forgot about it.Wolfgang

This problem was discovered long ago and it was going to be addressed in an upcoming update but that hasn't happened. I posted about this a while ago under my old user name, then under this username and I

hi!i've got another problem: after I have reinstalled my FS9(.1) all the PMDG displays and the FMC stay black although i can start a completely normal engine startup procedure.Almost the same configuration is installed at FS2002 and there it works without problem...The problem is the same at 600/700 and 800/900. Installed Service Update 2, then the 1.2 -> 1.3 and the 800/900. And even if i check after every step of that installations, the problem cannot be solved.Another problem is, that he tells me, that the PMDGoptions.DLL is not a valid prior version and can't be updated. Maybe there is the problem hidden?Config:Win XP - P4, 3,0GHz, 1024MB DDR Ram, ATI Radeon 9800XLHope you can help me, because I love that plane...GWG009
