Recommended Posts

Hello there chaps im having a problem here i hope somebody can help me with, I installed the plane no problem the Direct x ran alright and the runtime as well the activation was accepted without a hitch and i clicked on all the pop ups as they appeared but when i openend the plane in fsx i did not have a countdown i believe this is the inialization and when the cockpit came up all the screens were blank and i could not turn them on also as soon as i tried to brighten the lights i get a ctd is there anybody that can please help me with this ive tried both the old installer and the new one but the same results, i just want to be able to fly this great looking plane again. When i first purchased this i had to do a full reinstall of fsx but i really dont want to go there again as it takes me around seventeen hours to do this.cheersIain

Try backing up your FSX.cfg somewhere, then deleting the fsx.cfg and let FSX rebuild it. Make sure you allow all the modules to run etc. You shouldn't have to activate again.

I doubt it's this but give it a try. After the ac loads, have you tried waiting for 30 seconds? I'm just thinking that maybe the message countdown is hidden, and actually it is initializing.

Do you have FSUIPC Settings that might be conflicting? You could try moving the FSUIPC.dll out of the modules folder and see if that's the problem

Is your 2-D panel functional? I have the same problem with you and the 2D panel is distorted. But this only appears on default 739 WL PMDG livery.

Just to be sure Service pack 1& 2 are installed for FSX?Did you reinstall everything on the same location as before?I did had the exact same problem and couldn't figure it out as well. The only thing that helped was installing everything on a different location.When unistalling the PMDG from FSX where all files and folders from PMDG removed? Regrads, Jeffrey

Okay. When you've uninstalled, make sure you delete any remaining FSX related folders (including in the Appdata folder) and also run CCleaner registry cleaner a couple of times. Then install it as per Nick N's FSX setup guide. Install the NGX before any other addon.

Hello Iain, I'm guessing you have already tried this but worth a shot anyway... Does it make any difference if you start the flight with a default aircraft and then switch to the NGX once in the game enviroment? I have to load the game enviroment in each session of using FSX before I can load the NGX otherwise it will without fail cause FSX to CTD. I can do this by either starting at my preferred location with a default aircraft (usually the aircreation microlight) and then using the menus from within the game enviroment to switch to the NGX, or providing I have all ready been into the game enviroment during an FSX session I can then load the NGX from the FSX front end and start the free flight from there. Neither of these seems to cause me any problems with the aircraft, in fact these are the only ways I can sucessfully get the aircraft to work.unsure.png

I have been having a similar problem on and off. I load the PMDG plane, the cockpit appears, but there is no countdown. After a few seconds, I'll left click somewhere on the screen, and it goes grey, like it's about to CTD. However, it then returns to the regular colors and the countdown begins.. Weird.

That to me sounds like the system is out of VRam.

Have you submitted a ticket to PMDG tech support, Iain? I'd hate for you to give up on it without asking the pros first.

I wouldn't give up all together. Wait for SP1. That might fix it.

lain, The gauges not showing even after the trust function could be due to service pack issue in FSX , what service packs have you currently installed in FSX ? SP1 SP2 or Acceleration.
