737 ngx for p3d v4

Recommended Posts

I see that the 737 is out for p3d v4. in the operations center it says i have the ngx installed in p3d v3 and to use my installer to install into p3d v4 but when i run the installer it only gives me the option to modify, repair or unistall and nothing about installing into v4. I've tried all three options and i cant install it into p3d v4. am i missing something?

Yes. You miss the installer for v4 from PMDG itself. Try to download the last version from you account (but i guess, it is not out yet).

Welcome to the forum. Please ensure that your full name - first and last - is included in your future posts.

And yes - the presence of the aircraft in the Operations Center does not mean that it is available yet for download. We always get the OC ready for the aircraft before releasing the aircraft. We make very clear posts (and OC notifications) when the product is ready.

Patience is the key word. The forum is swarmed by unnecessary topics. It should be blocked by admins.

Eh...better to leave it open for people to post, and not unnecessarily restrict discussions. It would be nice if people looked first, but it's not too much trouble to just link to an existing answer, or copy/paste.

Any estimated date for release of NGX for v4?

No, but we're still well in the expected time window

Quote

PMDG 737NGX:

  • 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...

Welcome to the forums, by the way.

Trying to re-download the installer from my account... We'll see. I haven't gotten the update, since I scrapped Prepar3D V3 :biggrin:

Sooo - thanks for the heads-up!

P3Dv4 is all what the doctor orders lately, and he sure's right.  (Ok, XPlane11 is nice too. There, there). I have P3Dv2, v3 and now v4 but still my main flightsim has always been FSX. And thus, for all these years, i have been flying the 737NGX in FSX. 

IMHO P3Dv4 is the upmost best thing that ever happend to us flightsimmers ( Ok, XPLane11 is best too), commending FSX/P3Dv3 to the flightsim dungeons forever. So what now ?.... Are we poor NGX pilots that stayed loyal to FSX left out of this "64bit celebration" that is the release of the P3Dv4 compatible PMDG 737NGX ?  Are we being punished for staying with FSX and pay the price (again...) ??.... 

It very much looks like it but i can't help wondering if it's fair... 

cheers,
jan
