777/747 v2 on a remote PC

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow PMDG lovers,

 

The usual question (it was just a matter of time before someone asked this. Maybe it even already was asked in which case all my apologies) :

 

considering the amazing quality of the 737NGX system and gauges depiction, and considering it will most probably be at least as good for the 777/747 v2, would it be possible to create a version WITHOUT a VC ? A version that could be partially run on a networked PC in order to get the most out of FS in terms of landscape graphics but leave the system/gauges rendering to another PC (a la SimA/PM) ?

 

I am no software developper so I have no idea how difficult it would be, what it would take, how different it would be from the all-in-one VC version, so this is just a question. What I am sure of, is that there would definitely be customers for this, albeit I am sure PMDG staff has most probably already thought of it and estimated the percentage (not high I guess). But nonetheless : if it was possible in a "simple" (please note the quotation marks) way to get systems and gauges alone (but keep the flight model, integrated fuel/mass system,....), on a networked PC, I'd be ready, and others as well I'm sure, to pay for this other version !

 

Just a thought

Back to my NGX for now :P

I too am hopeing PMDG will eventually go down the project magenta style route for networked PC's and cockpit builders . For now I'm happy with full virtual aircraft in FS

What could be useful is for potential customers interested in such a version (which does obviously not preclude the full VC version as some misunderstood) to manifest themselves. Although I bet most of them do not come to these parts often unfortunately.

Maybe they can include an option for this.

We're looking into doing this - no guarantees as always, but it is on the list. And we're not going to charge you $500 for it either.

Why don't you try Wideview ?

 

You can run a panel pc with all PMDG 2d panels and one or more outside view pc's.

 

Works with all aircraft that have 2d panels.

 

 

 

Here an example. Imagine the PMDG 777 like this :

Or like this....

 

I was more thinking along those lines Just%20Kidding.gif

Anyway

That's such fantastic news ! Thanks a lot for at least considering it !! I think so many of us would be interested !

I'll indulge myself in some fake DVD cover later on if nobody minds, although the first one was erased. One that shouldn't bring any trouble :Tounge:

Hi guys,

now that things have moved on, any news on this ?

I'm running the NGX with multiple screens quite happily now (triple head 2go for the outisde view and VC, and other monitors for 2D undocked panels) but this takes its toll on FPS and is not as smooth as it could be.

So I'm still -and I bet we're quite a bunch- very, very (did I mention very ?) interested in a 777 version that could run on a networked PC.

Would be sooo great to have PMDG's fantastic quality along with default aircraft's smoothness.

Cheers guys

Gents-

 

As I have been saying for about 15 months:  We are moving in that direction but it will not be in v1.0 of the 777.

 

We have no timeline for it...

 

When it is done... it is done.  etc...
