Issues having installed the PMDG 737 800 NG in P3d V4

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Hoping someone can help me out. I have just purchased and installed the PMDG 737 800 NGX Base Package.

The Sim is P3D V4

1. After installation I checked the start menu for the Operations Centre and it doesn't exist?

2. When I start the sim with the 737 sat at a gate, after about a minute. it looks like the aircraft

has suddenly sank into the floor, and from an out side view, an illustration of sparks are emerging from the engines

the sim then resets it;s self back to the saved scenario.

I have re downloaded the program, and re installed, but hasn't made any difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Regards Tom

Start > PMDG > Operations Center

Do not assign the PMDG aircraft as your default aircraft in P3D.  What you should see when you start P3D is the Select Scenario screen (check the box to always show this) and the F22 spinning in the small window. From this you can then select the NGX.  This is explained in the Introduction document.

That is the way I have started P3D for years. never ever had a problem doing that.

Then you're getting lucky. Please ensure that you have a run through the Intro Manual. We specifically mention avoiding this due to the issues that it can cause. This issue goes as far back as the beginnings of FSX, at the very least.

Hi

Thanks very much for your replies :-) I'll try the default start up and see what happens.

In the mean time any ideas why the operations Centre has not appeared in the start menu ???

Many Thanks  Tom

Apparently you didn't understand my comment on this thread...

Apparently. Got it now. In the context of the thread, though, it's not quite clear.

That means you're trying to install the FSX version into P3D. That won't work.
