Navigation Display

Recommended Posts

PMDG Support,When using the Boeing 737NG series in Flight Simulator 2004, I have noticed that there is a small graphics issue with the Navigation Display (ND) on the First Officer's side of the panel (see attached images.) The first image (88002.jpg) shows the problem in the 737-700 after the optional model update that adds the clickable VC to the 737-600 and 700 cockpits. The second image (88004.jpg) shows the problem in the 737-800 (version 1.0.) The graphics issue appears in the 737-800 and 900 (version 1.0) and then in all of the aircraft after the optional model update. The specifications for my computer are:AMD Athlon 64 FX-51 Processor2GB Corsair DDR PC3200ATI Radeon 9800XT 256MB using Catalyst Windows XP 4.7 DriversWindows XP Professional EditionWhen running Flight Simulator I have 6x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled and run Flight Simulator in a 1600x1200 pixel resolution. I turned off anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering and reduced my resolution to 1024x768 pixels, but this did not solve the problem. I uninstalled the entire 737NG series using the uninstall program provided on your website and reinstalled the 737NG series. This did not solve the problem. I then uninstalled and reinstalled Flight Simulator 2004 and also reinstalled the 737NG series. This did not work either. In order to make sure that this was not an issue with my computer and its configuration, I installed the 737NG series on a computer with specifications listed below:Pentium 4 (1.4GHz) Processor640MB of RAMNVIDIA GeForce4 Ti4600 (128MB and AGP 4X) using 56.72 DriversWindows XP Home EditionThe same issue also exists on this computer. Does the PMDG team have any suggestions in order to solve this graphics issue? I just thought I would bring this to your attention. Thank you for your time.Elliot Farney

Actually, I think this is normal in the Virtual Cockpit. Does it happen in the 2D cockpit?Nick B.Continental Airlines Virtual 737NG Pilothttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg--AMD Athlon XP 3200+ @ 2.2 Ghz (Equal to 2.8 ghz)400W Power supply3x 80 mm Case FansSoyo VIA KT600 Dragon PlusnVidia GeForce FX 5200 128 mb2 x 512 PC400100 GB Western DigitalMicrosoft Sidewinder Precision 2

Nick,When I select the "737-600 - 2D Cockpit only" option, for example, the graphics problem does not occur. However, when "737-600 - Virtual Cockpit" or "737-600 - Virtual Cockpit & Cabin" is selected, the problem is present. Can this be fixed? Elliot Farney
