Good post! LOLAlthough I can tell you, based on the tacked post above, that we won't see this thing before Christmas. There's just no way, it's not even beta yet and that eats a month or so.

You're assuming the beta will be bug ridden though. Remember, this plane is starting with everything the NG already has and everything PMDG learned making it...

Anybody who has ever been on the beta team knows that it is next to impossible for a project that complex as 747-400.Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2

What I really should have said was that beta would eat AT LEAST a month. Remember the 737 took a while, but not as long as some probably thought. The difference was it needed some major overhaul after the first release. I'm using that experience to assume PMDG will take more time to release the 747, thus more time on beta. ;)I'm PMDG's biggest fan, so I'm not being critical. I just know they're gonna be safer this time with their releases, simply because they don't want to hear people complaining about 747 bugs, and I don't blame them. That's just my feeling about how things will be, as I've had no contact with them. I do hope they don't take as long as Dreamfleet or Flight 1 however; One easily forgets about their projects since they take so long :-lol And I'm also a big Dreamfleet and Flight 1 fan too!

The reason why some beta take so long is that they should never go to beta to begin with. So if they do a reasonable good job during alfa then it will shorten the beta. My own opinion when the product is ready for beta is when the developer can't find any obvious errors. But this is often not the case and product is pushed to beta prematurely.Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2

Gents-Please don't spend too much time conjecturing about how long is an acceptable beta period.....At PMDG we have spent less time in beta on each successive project because we spend more time in Alpha....Beta teams aren't always very good at finding minor detail flaws in an product as complex as a 747-400 simulation. There are some flaws that are obvious- and some that are not.... As such- we spend a significant amount of time in Alpha.The more you learn, the more you learn....No worries... If we can conduct a 5 minute beta- we will. If it takes 5 years....then so be it.....The measure of time really means nothing unless you know what else we are doing behind the scenes.

Any chance of releasing the manual before the plane? It would make the painful wait so much easier...... and cut down on the "read the manual posts" after release.I anticipate a no, but perhaps it's being considered.BobKMEM

On the NG it was the last item I believe to be finished. Of course PMDG have a better idea I believe on what they will implement for the 744 so who knows...Best Wishes,[h4]Randy J.

Talking of Santa, I'm surprised PMDG hasn't come up with a Santa complete with reindeers and sleigh for FS - it would be fun to fly - how do you set up a complete around the world in trip in less than 24 hrs - must be one hell of an FMC !!
