737NGX and 747 dislplay issues

Recommended Posts

I've come across a problem with both my 737NGX and 747-X programs that I can't fix. the problem with both add-ons comes when I either minimize or reduce the size of the display when using them in FSX.

After minimizing or changing the screen size and I go back to full screen one of several things happens: the panels disappear, the diplay goes blank, the cockpit displays as if the graphics are just getting loaded, or the scenery repeats (such as cars duplicate over and over). I also found out that my other aircraft add-ons don't have this problem. I can change the window size or minimize when using them and they work fine. I've tried re-loading the PMDG software; I've run system diagnosis and I've re-installed FSX. I also ran the software without any of my add-on scenery and the problem is still present. I can't think of anything else to try. I've checked the FSX settings and have put them into default mode but no luck.


Any suggestions?

There have been several or more threads on running FSX full screen, windowed etc.; seems there are problems depending very much on your system that are related more to how FSX works than how PMDG works within FSX. Maybe it's the number of objects in the model or whatever, my solution is real basic. 


I always run FSX in a window, usually left maximized, with toolbar showing so I can switch between the apps I like to run with flying long haul including Outlook, iExplorer, ASN, PFPX and usually a couple open PDF's and the OC.  Others like running full screen but I think switching between full screen and windows will eventually lead to problems for some.


Try using search to find those other threads, probably more informative.
