I predict the following from RSR: 

"We wanted to release the EFB but we have an issue in the sim and we are waiting for our friends at Asobo to fix this issue....Just because we are lazy and waiting for Asobo to fix our issues 😛

What's your agenda with this statement?

Just to add context to this, this is Emi (737 IRL pilot who beta tests for them) providing a preview video of the upcoming update, about which he posted here: https://forum.pmdg.com/forum/main-forum/general-discussion-news-and-announcements/199069-pmdg-737-new-update-first-look-preview

And this update only has animations and other flight deck visual fidelity improvements (which required code changes that are more than just visual fixes) as clearly stated here: https://forum.pmdg.com/forum/main-forum/general-discussion-news-and-announcements/199069-pmdg-737-new-update-first-look-preview
"This update cycle has a number of of fixes/tweaks and new capabilities added to it, but most of them are really small functionality items. The larger focus has been on continued upgrades to targeted areas of the flight deck visual fidelity and improvements in animation algorithms that have proven problematic for many users in the form of "hitchy" or "granular" or "low fps" animations in things like the yoke, column, throttles, etc.
We are happy to report that we have made really good progress toward smoothing these things out. To give credit where it is due- a couple members of the user community made observations about the "low fps" that got the investigative progress going in the right direction- and we found that animations tied to complex systems where we intentionally limit the computation speed in order to avoid flooding the processor with floating point computations is where things break down. So a reimagining of some key areas related to the measurement and passing of time and processor cycles was called for- and this is miserably complex work that is taking a bit longer than we had planned.
"

Also as stated there, the EFB is continuing to make good progress and will show up likely after the -600 and before the -800 or with the -800 (again also as they clearly stated before the -700 release):
"PMDG Universal Flight Tablet:
Work continues here. This week we are integrating navigraph charts, and also refining simbrief functionality. It is still too early to predict when this will slot into the 737 release cycle, but the team working on this aspect of the airplane is motivated and making incredibly good progress. I suspect holding off on this technology piece until after release of the 700 has given them a chance to really refine what it is we are accomplishing with this piece of the product line- and it is shaping up to be something truly wonderful.
Far nicer than the clunky first generation EFB we modeled in the NGXu.

If you had followed their release schedule announcements of the last months a bit closer, you'd have had no such hope. 

The EFB was never planned to be released this early. They always said: Around the time of the 800 release, maybe before it, or with it.

now take that key message and elaborate it on 3 pages of text to generate another wall of words 🙂

am i doing it right, guys?

🙄

It's a pretty half hearted effort, you really need to criticize everything they do and compare RSR to the spawn of the devil.

 

1/10

 

Try harder next time 😉
