Not to come off like an annoyance or anything, you guys at PMDG  did say you will have a topic about the NGX after the holiday for V4. It's been 5 days and although the XPL  topic was needed. Most of us are eagerly waiting for the NGX and anything about it. Just asking how everything is coming along with it, and hopefully nothing major is going wrong like the 777-300ER 

 

CHEERS😊

The latest time window was until 10JUL17. Cool your jets... I'm fairly certain, they aren't sitting on their hands.

In fairness, that is the information they gave in the 4th July Topic about the 777. "More information after the holiday". Well, where is the info?

it worries people when companies don't keep to their own advice.

It's hard to wait I know, I'm one who is dying to get into the NGX in v4.  But, PMDG has been more than forthcoming about the process every step of the way, from day one, much more than I can say other companies, and this is a free upgrade.  All that work, and putting up with all the whining and complaining from the sim community, is being done for free, for our benefit.  My advice?  There's another 737 out there that's v4 ready, for about 80 dollars, for anyone who doesn't want to wait.

As far as I know it has been said release between JUL06 and JUL15, so we're well within this window.

Where did you see that? Last I knew it was 30th June to the 10th July?

No they didn't. Besides, look at the thread which is updated with the newest information regarding the conversion process:

  • This product will enter testing on 02JUL17
  • The current expectation is to release between 06UL-15JUL, depending upon how smoothly final testing goes.
  • Special Anti-Dumb-Question-Note: Testing/Release of this product has nothing to do with the 77W...

I find all this interesting, demanding information when it will be release. PMDG doesn't care what you demand, if you read how they do things in this forum it's very simple.  

If there is nothing new to tell you that mean they won't tell you

its ready and it's ready

trust me, I come here quite a lot I am waiting anxiously to fly this bird.

Wait no longer!  Over in the 737 sub forum this was posted less than 72 hours after the holiday.

How annoying! Why update a post with new information but include an old date in the title. Very misleading to new forum members. Perhaps if they want to remain consistent and keep everyone updated properly, they should have made a dedicated sticky topic for each product rather than mashing info together into multiple topics. Just my opinion.

Where did they include an old date in the title?!

It says [23JUN17]. One would assume therefor that its old information, and any topic posted after that time would supersede the old topic. This is why I suggest that product updates should be put into stickies for each product, then there is only one place to look for the latest info.

Instead there is that topic, the on labeled [04JUL17], not to mention the many user posts about it!

 

All I am saying is putting [23JUN17] on a topic, and then making another one with [04JUL17] which contains info about the NGX in it, is a little misleading. It could be done better.

That is true - but if you read the post, you'd quickly find out, that it's sole purpose is to be updated dynamically, when they have new information with regards to the Prepar3D V4 process... 

I can see your point regarding the date - but on the other hand, the title also contains Most current information... So, personally I don't really think it's a big deal...

Oh its no big deal, and yes you're right it does read that way once you understand the point in the topic is to be updated. Just a bit confusing if you're new :-)

I shudder every time PMDG tries to be forthcoming with their estimated release dates.... it never satisfies anyone.  The simple truth is that it will be done when it is done.  The aircraft and installers are still work in progress.  We are testing, braking and fixing stuff.  Let it go.

You mean to tell me it's not ready yet? How dare they... don't they know we can't sim without it?:angry:

In all seriousness is there no patience anymore?:unsure:

Shoot. They didn't even give a release date. Robert just said there would be more info coming after the holiday.

My turn to jump in and say "Patience."  No, the developers are not sitting on their hands.  As Dan said, we continue to test and work is ongoing.
