[P3D V4.4] PMDG 747-8 Issues with cockpit displays?

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

Just today I tried to start up a flight from Luxembourg to Abu Dhabi using the CLX 747-8F and was unpleasantly greeted to these images when I opened the flight deck:

Ignore the fact that half the cockpit is missing that is simply some weird reflection pack and isn't the relevant point. I am simply unsure why these displays are not even showing. The chrono and the right side ND and PFD appear to be glitching somewhat, and even though the Captain-side ND and PFD are looking A-ok, they don't work either. The 2d panels do seem to work however its obviously not ideal to fly a whole flight in this aircraft using 2d panels. I tried the -8i to see if the problem changed, and sadly it didn't. The -400 worked fine and faced no problem that the -8 did.

 

Anyone got any idea's to what the problem may be?

Ok I'm a dud, to update the 400 faces the exact same problem :(.

 

Here is a screenshot from the -400er

Note: With the QualityWings 787 I face the exact same issue right now, 3d panels not working however 2d panels work fine. Probably linked somehow but not honestly sure.

 I presume you did not receive an initilization countdown as well. Looks like licensing issue so please open a ticket with us at support.precisionmanuals.com

I'm not quite following you here. Are you saying that you are using a reflection pack, but you don't believe that is the cause?

What makes you think that wouldn't cause it?
