777 in Prepar3D

Recommended Posts

Dear Community,

I have a quite big problem: I only have P3D, and i'd like to run the PMDG 777 :/

I have heard that it isn't possible to install it directly into P3D, the same thing as the 737.

I managed to run the 737 on P3D with a few tweaks, a friend of mine used the FSX to Preoar3d migration tool....

 

FSX and P3D run on the same source code, so...

Did anybody try to import it?

Thank you!

Greetings

I brought this for Xplane and it doesnt work either - very dissappointed. They should have said on their website which platforms it worked on. Oh wait, they did.......

It will not work.  Even if you can get it to work, it is not made for this purpose (and you'd be in violation of the EULA).

In my opinion it's just a thing of respect towards customers to point out that this product has a software lock that prohibits it from running in Prepar3d.

 

@Elliot in case you haven't noticed, Prepar3d is based on the FSX code and thus your comparision with X-Plane is absolutely pointless, since most FSX addons run very well in Prepar3d... So, you can save your cheap sarcasm.

And PMDG should have pointed out the T7 doesn't work in FS9 ... It's getting ridiculous, guys!

Why do people keep saying they weren't warned on the product page?

 

Are you looking at a different product page from the rest of us?

  • This is an FSX ONLY product.
  • This package is required to use any of the PMDG 777 series products.

By now, I'm starting to wonder about the different meaning of the word "ONLY"...

How many times do we have to go through this? PMDG does NOT support the way the P3D license works. End of story.

If you want to read about it in deatil, search for RSR's post on this very subject, he took quite some time to write it.

I would just like to know WHY it's locked out of P3D.

My guess: support cost, you will be amazed at how many will try to get support for something that is clearly not designed for.  Secondly, special feature like the cruise compression will not work with P3D, IMHO.  PMDG now knows the inner working of FSX very well and that's why they know P3D is different.  Third, legal and liability, although the simulation is superb, it's not an officially training tool which would have to be to run on P3D.

...I really wish Microsoft would point out that Microsoft Office 2010 only works for Windows!  If only I'd have known!!!

 

Jerks!

 

 

 

 

...seriously?

 

The product page says "PMDG 777 for FSX" (or something similar, I can't see it at work).

The image next to it shows "FSX" in it.

...and the descriptive text below also states "this product will only work in FSX."

I got it to work in XPX but I had to use a hacksaw, a chisel, a mallet and a blindfold! :lol:

Funnily enough, all these jokes about it not working for other things are as annoying as people asking why the T7 doesn't work in P3D - it's not the same thing. The NGX works fine in P3D, the T7 uses the same platform as the NGX, so it's hardly unnatural to assume the T7 would also work in P3D. This isn't to say I have any sympathy for those complaining it doesn't work on P3D; PMDG are within their right to block it working, even if it is a bit of an annoying move and it would've been nicer if PMDG pointed out they've blocked it working with P3D because clearly everyone currently running the NGX in P3D is going to assume it will work.

Nah...it's just a violation of the EULA (for both products).

 

I can use a knife to cut an apple or stab someone.  Just because they both "work" doesn't mean both are okay (extreme example, but you get the point).  One of those options will get me in a world of trouble...

 

Again, the order page states at least for times "for FSX," curiously omitting P3D.  If it was for P3D, it would state that.  Assuming...well...we all know what assuming does.

 

In a community centered around aviation, you should know better than to assume.

I never mentioned anything about the EULA, of course it's a violation but that has nothing to do with what I'm saying. Also, the NGX page also says "for FSX only" so saying that on the T7 page is hardly going to make someone think it doesn't work on P3D. As I said, I don't disagree with what PMDG have done - it goes against the EULA. I was mainly addressing these ridiculous comparisons on the thread where people, I can only assume, think they're being funny.  :lol:

No I had noticed, but its precisely the same point. Dont get upset over a risk you took that did not pay off. Violating companies EULAs is not a trivial issue. In most cases you should have the product blocked or revoked. People brought this for P3D when it explicitly states FSX only and everyone knows PMDG officially does not support P3D and currently has zero plans to do so. What is quite comical is that people think they have been duped when for some reason, surprise surprise, its not working in P3D. Its ridiculous. They have stated it plain and simple on the product page - four times!

Will p3d v2 change the mindset of pmdg? Only if p3d have the same number of user as xplane. 

 

Its all about the EULA.

 

As long as P3D does not have an entertainment section in their EULA - my guess is PMDG will never support it.

 

However - if PMDG create the option to have commercially licensed version of their products - then yes, there would be no reason why they wouldnt support it - in my opinion.
