Recommended Posts

The 747-8F was working fine in 4.3, I disable the antivirus proceded with OC to update.

Upon lunch P3d the -8F didn't shows the landing gear and all the panel completly freezed, then I did  another update that came for the rain effect.

Same situation after the update.

So need to reinstall everithing from scratch, can't imagine how much  I love this.

Fabrizio-

Log into your account and grab a copy of the installer from there.  Run that installer and let us know if it cures the issue for you?

 

Matt-

Can you clarify what you mean?  I'm not tracking if you have a problem or do not have a problem...

I had the same issue he is reporting. Meanwhile, I exited the sim and happened to catch the postings about the pushed update re: the rainmaker fix. I ran that and started the sim back up. The issue no longer exists. Maybe a glitch on my end. I was going to re-run simconnect installers to see if that was the cause, but looks like I don't need to now. Everything seems to be running swimmingly. v4.4

I have the same issues after the update, and after both installed the aircraft again and re-run the simconnect it still does not work for me. (have the rainmaker fix update installed)

For me since this update, nothing works, now even after reinstall upon downloaded.

The other aircraft like the 777 and the 737 are fine.

Gents,

I ran into this issue after a full uninstall and reinstall. I tried all kinds of things on my own computer. The rest of the team seemed unaffected, but they were all on 4.4.

When I updated to 4.4 (client only), it sorted itself out.

 

 

We're looking into alternative ideas of what could cause this, but for those of you who are on 4.3 who are willing to update to 4.4 (I'd recommend it), that should do it.

I am having this same problem. I originally installed the update from PMDG Operations Center after the rain update was already out and I got the black displays, knobs and buttons that don't work, and retracted landing gear in the external view. I tried downloading and reinstalling with the installer -- same thing. I was originally on P3D 4.3, but I updated to 4.4 and it didn't fix the problem.

Sorry to be redundant. I too have the issue. I am running 4.3. 

Im not sure im ready to update to 4.4. I wanted to wait  until FSlabs comes out with their anticipated update.

Peter,

Thanks.  I hate surprises and this certainly was one.  We have been basically version stable for a month and I can't find *anything* in the update trail that would indicate a 4.4 dependency sneaking in...  But apparently it did.

The offending developer will be drawn and quartered.  (After he finishes his deliverables for the NG3! :ph34r:)

I'd hate to be on the receiving end of that one... 🤣

Anders,

We are quite humane about it.  We allow him to choose:

1) Four angry forum users.

2) Four pushback tugs.

3) Four 747s

4) 1 each of DC-6, 737, 777 and a 747.

And we don't rush into this.  We take it very slowly.  :cool:

Thanks for all PMDG staffs working over the weekend.  I am having the same problem and my P3D version is 4.3.

After the update, I have got a notification saying that there is a livery error (the entry in Aircraft.cfg is deleted but the texture file is still in the P3D folder).  Just to see if this can be a hints on what's going wrong.

 

Cheers,

Bryan Ngai

Welcome to the forums, please note that PMDG requires that users include a signature block with the user's name, first and last, in all posts in the PMDG forum.

We strongly encourage users to set up a signature block in their AVSim user account, then you never have to worry to remember in the future!

 

I am guessing when you updated the 747 and you repaired the liveries and then you updated the -8 ?

Sorry for that, included now.

 

Yes, after the "load up dead', I uninstalled both 744 and 748.  After the re-installation, I updated the 744 -> fixed the liveries -> updated the 748.

And both models didn't work, even with the PMDG livery.

This is a known isues and is fixed for OCv2 that is under development. You should not fix any liveries until both planes are installed. Current solution is uninstall both of them and reinstall again.

Same issue here guys (back panels and no LG). I'm still on 4.3, and planning to stay there for a bit.

I hope you can fix it.

In case I wasn't clear earlier, I have 4.4 (client only) and I had the issue on first load. The issue resolved itself after the rainmaker fix and a sim restart. My startup state was set to LONG, which seems to have changed slightly. The FMC is now on IRS options page. Just passing this info on....

Been following this forum since the update.  

As always I wait until I see the problem reports on any piece of software being updated.

I still have not updated my -400 or -8 because I don't want the problems I have seen.

So my question is this, has the entire update issue been resolved?  Is the latest one in my OC OK?  Or is there another one in the works?

Thanks and appreciate the improvements in the update when you guys say it's ready.

If you're on P3D 4.4, go for it. If you're on 4.3 or earlier, hold off.
