Is PMDG going to work with FSDT to integrate GSX pushback?

Recommended Posts

I've posted about this a couple times but PMDG has not responded. Straight up, is PMDG going to integrate GSX's pushback function into QOTSII? The violent shaking during pushback is driving me crazy but it's apparently something that can be resolved by working with GSX's developer. See this thread on their forum. Another developer's recently-released A320 integrates GSX's pushback function quite nicely and I've had zero issues with it. I'm hoping that PMDG can take the time to do the same. 

Thanks,

Alex Pugh

P.S. Because I know how some people on this forum are, yes I am aware that PMDG includes a pushback function. It does not match GSX's functionality, nor would I expect it to.

I use GSX for pushback, no shaking at all for me, smooth and nice. Must be something with your system.

I also use GSX for pushback and don't have any issues with the PMDG 747.

Mine doesn't shake either.  Have you updated GSX using the installer from their site...not just the auto updates?  Sometimes auto updates don't update everything...

Mine did the shake when QOTSII first came out, but GSX has since updated and it no longer does it.

I've uninstalled and did a full reinstall of the latest version from Feb. 02 downloaded from their site several times. No dice.

No issues here with GSX and the Queen. Not sure why you are having the issue but you seem to be alone with the issue in this thread at least.

Looks like it. But there have been other threads with people having the same problem. 

For anyone wondering what I'm talking about, I uploaded this video. It's the worst at the 1:20 mark when turning during push.

Read  that  post  on the fsdt  forum that you have  linked,  and  found it  quite  amusing   on how  he  states  he  sent  a email to pmdg  and  they  replied "answered that they find FSDT "unhelpful and untruthful"  the  thing is  pmdg  dont reply  to any emails

In regards to the violent shaking, are you guys using chaseplane by any chance? There was a bug that caused shaking during GSX pushback, it has been fixed by now but i'm not sure if its already fixed in the non-experimental alpha build too.

I have the same issue and I'm not using anything external for my view. No chaseplane or Ezdok.

I'm also having this issue. Also not using Chaseplane or Ezdok. From the outside you can see the nose gear violently shaking during the turn as well. I will see about updating GSX this evening and see if that fixes it. Will report back.

I saw the video but that shaking I have never ever seen in FSX or FSX:SE at all. Got the 777 when I still was at box FSX and used GSX without any shaking. Now with FSX:SE it still
works like a sharm. Nice steady and smooth, not a sign of shaking the whole plane.

Next question is if it is only P3D pilots that have this shaking problem?

Are there any with FSX or FSX:SE that also experience this?

To me it looks like a P3D only problem.

Seems  that there  is  some  confusion between  fdst  and  pmdg  here on  who's  this  issues  lies  between.  Going  back  to the op's link  to  fsdt   forum, one  member  stated  he  sent   pmdg a support  ticket  on this  issue   and   got  a  reply  back  quote  "FSDT "unhelpful and untruthful"  in the ticket  reply   so  i  find  this  strange since  after  a few  support  tickets  myself  they have  never   replied  in this  manner?

Not using Chaseplane or EZDok. Also uninstalled Accu-Feel, thinking that could be linked to it.

Do any of you with this violent shaking on GSX pushback have the DynamicFriction.lua active in FSUIPC by chance?  I don't have the 747 but I experienced this problem with PMDG's MD-11 until I disabled the lua.  The problem magically went away.

Nope.  I'm on P3D.

I am curious. Do the people experiencing the shaking with GSX pushback have any of the 747 shaking enabled in the OPTIONS\Simulation menu page 9/10? In the video it appears shaking is turned on. I do not have any of the shaking options enabled and do not experience the shaking with GSX pushback.

I did try turning those off and it didn't do anything to fix it.
