Re PMDG 777 first preview video!

Recommended Posts

It's nice to see the features but these videos are all pretty nasty. Odd aspect ratios, jittery frames, spelling mistakes.... It makes the 777 look like something from FS9! Let's hope someone with a bit of a flair for video puts something out with the superb quality of nick's NGX overview a couple of years back.

Despite the fact that these videos are not in HD, and are not extremely "polished" like lots of the NGX videos are, the systems functionality which I believe is what they are really trying to showcase at this point is astounding, the only real competition I have seen to their level of realism is the Majestic Dash-8-Q400 and that is saying tons as they provide commercial Level-D simulators with their software for real pilot training. Sadly I will not be picking up the 777 as I do not like to fly the heavies, however I am nothing short of floored at the systems and graphics DESPITE the raw video footage which to me is not necessarily a bad thing.

Mate I'm flying on an Asus laptop right now - 20FPS average with pretty high settings (see 777 shots). Just down the Autogen and other things.

Stop releasing stupid pointless videos, and just release it, *******.

 

Okay we won't put out any more videos. But in order to release - approximately 165 million videos need to be uploaded (the fake price tag remember- isn't there to look pretty! B))

Does the 777 have a autostart like the 747 where you flip the fuel cutoff switches first and toggle the start on the overhead second? Just curious if it is only manually done like the 737 and in the last video.

Well done! Thanks for posting AJ.

You could wait for release with previews or you could wait without anything to see, I doubt that videos are holding things up.

No I want them to stop spending all their dang time on making videos, and focus on releasing it.

 

It's time to stop flying the 777 just for fun, (or what you call "beta testing)

If you ever flew the Aerosoft A320 (which by now has matured into a decent plane) when it first came out you will learn to appreciate beta testing, these vids are made by testors and not by the programmers themselves.

Don't pay attention to him. He doesn't know what he's talking about. :)

He's just upset because he can't buy it yet.

Impatience is all.

Hey Lyle I hear your momma calling. Its way past your bedtime. When you wake up and your momma changes your diaper and powders your butt you'll fell better.

I'm glad the testers are posting videos. Keep them coming as some of us appreciate them. (Plus the dev team can keep squashing bugs and not have to worry about screen shots or vids)

 

Thanks for the videos.

As long as they are recorded and rendered at the proper aspect ratio I won't care how many I have to watch.

Oh my but when it came out WE the CUSTOMERS were the beta testers it felt like.  It's a great bus now but it felt like forever getting it to where it is now.  I feel a completely different story with this T7
