Obviously they mean the first full week, as the 777 should go to testing today according to the topic, so you can deduce from that at the end of this week hopefully.

If you've been with PMDG long enough you should know that they will say something when they are ready. They may be busy sorting this 747/FSUIPC problem out for all we know.

Well, the first week of June ended last Friday!

grow up! Can hardly call 2 days a full week! They only just got the 747 done on Sunday.

As a reminder, and I am not speaking for PMDG here specifically, but for releases of any kind. When a group puts out a timetable or schedule, this means that it will come out "on time" based on a perfect world. As usual, there are unexpected things that pop up that cause delays that may or may not be out of the specific developers control.

I wouldn't stress about it, I would rather a properly functioning product that took a little extra time to complete rather then one that has many issues. In the end, relax, it will be out in due time. That is all.

PMDG stated pretty clear that the 777 would go out to the beta team as soon as the 747 would have been released for v4. As this happened a few days ago we can assume that they actually work on the 777 and will release it as soon as they are done with it. PMDG planned on the first week of June which is now. The 747 made some problems and so the 777 is a little bit delayed.. But as I know PMDG they will make the 777 compatible on time. It's Tuesday. Relaxe =)

Sorry for not following your opinion, but the business logic proves that the 747's orders have been rising since the release of P3D V4.

Nevertheless, I can understand that in 5 months, as privileged partner of Lockeed, they did not consider it good to satisfy the free customers on their product (225$ both 777+ER)

Apart from that, I have never seen such a level of realism on flight simulators and it looks good that we wait even if this is more than unbearable.

In fact that the 777 beauty should already be in beta test, are there any news concerning the taxi cam and the performance compared to v3 in v4?

Those of you who are still complaining should look back into some of these threads and read the explanations.  It's important to keep in mind, contrary to popular opinion, that most developers, including PMDG, didn't get a lot of beta copies.  So, how can a development team re-design a program without having multiple copies of the platform to work with?  Patience...remember this is a FREE update and they're under no obligation to anyone to explain why it's taking longer than expected.  PMDG has gone out of their way to get their magnificent aircraft up and running in v4.  We should be thankful, not whiners.

You're kidding, right?

You seriously believe they would hold back the 777 in order to sell more 747??
Or did I misunderstood your point?

Dear sir, please stop making the stuff up, this is ridiculous. 

From what 'business logic' DID it prove that 747's orders have rising? Do you have access to their sales data? Or you are just speculating something you don't know, if you are not sure about it please don't use the phrase like 'proves' kind of word. That's only used when you have certain proof. 

Why don't take a close look at their post, they are working as hard as you can ever imagine. Many people guessed it would take couple months to make PMDG products compitable with 64bit Prepar3D v4. Obviously they are all wrong. After 4 days of the launch of P3Dv4, PMDG made that happen. I cannot imagine how long and how difficult they are working to bring the best quality addon to us. They are admirable and awesome.

People are just becoming greedy and they keep asking for more. They are developers not production machines. It's annoying when people keep posting some information that is misleading. If you don't want to wait, time travel to the future or make a 777 by yourself. If you don't trust PMDG, find out the truth by yourself.

Cheers,

Gordon

Check the pinned post in general forum. They have an expected time schedule. You will see it in the foreseeable future. It's not somewhere in void.
