Bugs/issues report thread

This has probably been addressed before, so at the risk of repeating myself I go ahead and ask:

 

Has the issue with the callouts and random sounds causing momentary freezes been looked into? This is particularly annoying during touchdown, as the aircraft is choosing the random touchdown sound he's gonna use and the sim freezes for a tenth of a second.

 

I now I might be the n-th guy to say this, just making sure.

 

Ryan said this has been fixed.  I had a topic on this a few weeks back.  A Korean simmer kindly modified those sounds to reduce the size and eliminate the pauses.  It works for now

Thanks Rob!

 

Oh and sorry for not using the search engine, my bad.

Okay so i have been flying the PMDG 777 for a while no with no hickups. I recently did a complete re-install of fsx and other related software. I now realize that when i use spacebar and mouse to pan around the vc cockpit the simulator becomes very twitchy/laggy when the cursor moves over buttons or any of the screens. The same with the FMC. Its as if the cursor that changes from the default arrow to a hand or whatever has to be loaded and that causes a "jump" in the simulator. Overall FPS is a solid 30+.

 

ANy ideas?


Oh and lastly. Before re-installing everything it never happened. Panning was fine.

im having major issues with PMDG's 777-200. try loading the aircraft and it comes up with an error. something about failing to load work files and to make sure im loading fsx as administrator bare in mind ive just done a fresh install of windows and im the only account on my pc. then it comes up with an activation code. which I don't have. and comes up with a message saying I don't have a license for the product. then the aircraft loads. well partially loads. no landing gear. no altimeter or gauges. no workable switches etc...

 

Help lol

 

oh and PMDG support are useless.

I have noticed for some time now, that the trim lever some times moves all by it self, or at least something I press makes it go full nose down trim! I am not aware of me doing anything wrong. I don't usually trim the T7, only before take of and that's it.

 

Anyone can tell me what is going on? Or if I am to blame or this is a bug?

Problem on your end. Check the null zone on your toe brakes.

Bug - during a powerback at a parking space with no pushback in place, when closing the reversers, the aircraft instantly just changes direction  - ie, from 5kts backwards, to instantly 5kts forwards.

Have included a video example, bug occurs between 0:32 - 0:35 :

Welcome to the PMDG forums.  Please note their rules require our full names on all posts.

The B777 should never use reverse to push back.

Hello, I never saw such rules (nor could I find them while making relevant searches in the forum - perhaps you could help direct me?)

What is it that prohibits a 777 for powerback? (Was speaking to an aquaintance who is a 757 captain and has had to powerback after diverting in an emergency to a smaller airport, and then there was no available tow to push the aircraft out the parking space. It's an unusual procedure due to the FOD risks associated, but I say it is certainly a non-normal procedure that may sometimes have to be carried out in certain circumstances. Is there something special about the 777 in particular that I don't know about that makes this kind of manoeuvre impossible?

Boeing FCOM Limitations page L.10.8. Backing the airplane with reverse thrust is prohibited.

I guess those GE90s are too powerful a vacuum cleaner to risk high power settings in close proximity to objects in the immediate environment. I don't think you could powerback with just idle reverse.

Is there a diagram i wonder, showing the danger area around the intake for reverse thrust. I found one for the 757 so can only imagine the area for a T7 would be larger.

I did find a T7 digram for takeoff thrust, not reverse thrust which is interesting in that the intake area is only 25ft radius..

Never had an issue powerbacking my POSKY! :tongue:

Hey Nahum, just watched your powerback bug video - I'd say that's quite normal physics happening:-

As you know the thrust reverse mechanism is a bunch of vane which divert the thrust forwards. You've increased the power beyond idle thrust to get the big girl to move back. When you cancel the reverse, the vanes retract, but the engines still take a little time to spool down and are still generating a reasonable amount of thrust. The vanes retract a lot faster than the time it takes for the thrust to decrease, hence the forward acceleration. Just be ready on the brakes! :happy:

It happens all the time with my freeware Avanti - I've just landed and have the props in beta (reverse), move the throttles forward to cancel reverse thrust and she tries to accelerate briefly. 

I respectfully suggest it isn't really a bug. :cool:

Adding to HighBypass's comments, remember that the core jet is not being reversed on these engines, as opposed to e.g. an MD-80, where the combined exhaust is being reversed. So add to that that you also have positive thrust on the core, you have a closed reverse system, while that huge fan is still spinning down. That is a lot of total forward thrust.
