Direct-x Issue

Recommended Posts

First off, I'd like to say how impressed I am with the PMDG 777!  It was pretty darn easy transitioning to it, after flying all the other PMDG Boeings!  Thanks for that.

 

The SMALL issues I have are:

- When I use Direct-X in FSX, I lose a couple pieces of interior textures.  I have attached the differences for techie reivew.

- Also, related to FMS features, when I try to enter an ATC fix, such as FH515 (for an arrival into Hahn, Germany), I get an unrecognized fix message; essentially, I cannot use local fixes, like I can with the 737, MD-11, and 747.  Even Level-D and Q-Sim allow me to use these fixes.  But not the Tripple-7.  Be nice to have it back, if possible.

 

Thanks a bunch PMDG for getting this airplane out for us simmy guys!  As a retired ATC and commercial pilot, I really appreciate PMDG's realism and overall great products!  

 

Help or guidance with my issues would also be appreciated...not a biggy, just a few minor bumps in the road to progress!

DirectX 10

 

Turning off the DX10 preview solves this issue.  This is not unique to PMDG, either.  Many add-on sceneries also see this issue at night.

Hello Eric

 

If You want to keep using DX10, there seems to be a solution over at the DX10 Disscussions Forum.

PMDG 777 and DX10, you'll need to apply Steve's free shader patch v3.2.2. available at the AVSIM library,

or you can wait a bit for his payware DX10 Tool.

 

Cheers.

It means the 777 is not initializing because the security key is not working.

 

You either reinstalled Windows more than once and now your old key has become invalid (contact PMDG), or

 

You changed so much hardware that your PC looks different to the PMDG anti hacking software. Happened to me as well recently after I disconnected ALL my USB stuff and a bunch of HDDs. (go back to previous hardware setup), or

 

You have a hacked PMDG777 version (contact PMDG for an official version, lol).
