[P3DV3] PMDG Black screens and nonfunctional VC

Recommended Posts

Good day everybody,

It's after almost 5 days of researches that I'm coming to ask your help. I am a recently new user to P3D V3 and really loving the improvements compared to Flight Simulator X. However, I'm having an issue that lot of people are having from what I heard. I'm a real fan of PMDG work and I am using their PMDG 737 and 777. On both of the aircrafts, when I load it, I'm having black screens, and I can't click on any button. The joystick is all the way up and to the left. I went on lots of forums to see solutions so I wouldn't bother you with a question that has been asked again and again. I've tried installing Simconnect, no changes, I've tried unistalling all the simulator and trying again with simconnect, nothing, with FSUIPC, nothing... I'm loosing hope because I really love PMDG's work and I just want it to work, as it does on Flight Simulator X (I still have it installed on my Computer).

I already thank you guys for reading me,

Regards

Good day everybody,

Hello, welcome to the PMDG forums.  Please note their rules require our names on all our posts.

What version of P3Dv3 (3.4 or later is required)? Lets stick to one product at a time,  have you read the installation recommendations in the Introduction document and followed those? Do you have a default airplane set in the default scenario (cannot set PMDG as default)?  On loading aircraft, do you see a 20 sec countdown (the aircraft initialization)?  "The joystick is all the way up and to the left," confuses me, there is not joystick in the airplane. Are you using a motorized game controller or do you mean the yokes in the aircraft are all the way left?

Sorry about that, I should have been more accurate. My P3D V3 version is the 3.4, and yes I red the installation recommendations given by PMDG in their ZIP file. So I was launching the PMDG as only aircraft and not choosing the F22, launching the scenario and switching to the PMDG 777/737 ! So yes, the default plane (F22) is set in the default scenario. Then when I load the PMDG, I'm not having any countdown of "Aircraft initialization" (I know that message cause I used to fly the PMDG fleet on my FSX). And then, sorry for using the word joystick, I should have said that the yoke, in the virtual cockpit is all the way down actually and turned to the left. So it was the wrong word that I used. I apologize.

Thanks first for helping me out, and I'll put that name right on my profile !

I forgot to ask if you are seeing the validation window to enter your license key the first time you launched either product.

Regardless, I recommend you contact PMDG directly (this is a user forum) and if new to the support portal then create an account (support accounts are separate from sales accounts) and submit a trouble ticket.  You can provide a link to this forum thread if you wish.  PMDG Product Support is here: http://support.precisionmanuals.com

I saw the validation window only once, and after that I didn't so I guess it's normal ? I've uninstalled and reinstalled P3D more than 5 times, and this is really making me mad, so I may contact PMDG's support yeah...

I am sorry to post a doublepost, but I don't know how to resolve this problem. I've been installing the different simconnects, I've been removing and reinstalling P3D V3.4 lots of times, I have the C++ Visual installation that went alright, and the activation window that appeared asking me for the key ! I don't know what to do ! Does anybody have a guess on it ?
