Pmdg 747-400x (fsx Version)

Recommended Posts

So I bought and installed the PMDG 747 for FSX today. Everything works fine except the enternal display. Half of the aircraft has its livery/texture but the other half is see through, like I can see the seats and all. I looked at this page:http://ops.precisionmanuals.com/wiki/PMDG_747-400X_FAQ#The_aircraft_model_is_a_see_through_skeleton and I tried uninstalling the 747,FSX, and all my other add-ons. Nothing seems to work!

Although not recommended, a single core P4 might work but your memory (256Mb) doesn't sound right, is that video ram or system ram? You should have 1Gb or greater per the product minimum system specifications for the 747XAlthough not mentioned, the Wilco product is known to corrupt the dll.xml file in FSX. There is a topic on it in the PMDG Ops section. Usually this causes a failure to load. Your problem sounds like a video card/driver issue - something different than the xml problem.I have ran the 747X with a P4 but it was 3Ghz and I had 2Gb RAM.

Is there a way to fix this problem?James

Please verify your system memory. Is it really 256Mb?
On DXDIAG, it's just Memory:256, on my local disc(C Drive) It's 4GBJames

You could probably install more Ram[pretty cheap] also maybe upgrade your video card,I would be interested to know how FSX runs for you in general? Hows your FPS?

I am amazed.Definitely get more ram... it's the least expensive add-on right now. At least 1Gb or 2Gb if you are so inclined. Going over 2Gb with a 32b OS opens a different can of worms, workable but maybe not worth it.

So getting more ram will fix the problem?

I don't know of anyway to rule out your limited memory as the problem; however, the minimum system requirements published by PMDG for the 747x is 1Gb. Your memory is the absolute minimum requirement for FSX according to what is on the box.

Yeah,A new PC would probably run things alot smoother,but for a few$ you could upgrade what you have now to get you by till you get your new pc. :(
