    PDMG 737NGX Missing Panel View Switch

    There are clickspots throughout the cockpit to bring up different panels. It’s all in the documentation that came with the plane.

    Braking sound

    I have nearly 14 years experience flying the 737-800 and have never heard the brakes from the cockpit.

    Trackir and PMDG

    I've been using TrackIR for around 13 years and have had no problems with it, For me it's a must have.

    NGX directed to water runway

    I don’t know if this would make a difference and you may already be aware of this but you can select different AFCADs depending on the winds for Fly Tampa EHAM in their configuration tool. That could possibly solve your problem.
  5. My experience it about the same as yours. Like the last time the CTDs were happening because I was trying to use Nvidia Inspector. It's not like it's happening super often. It's just that when it does it's supper annoying. Maybe more so because it happens so rarely. Of course it also depends on what you are flying. There is one airliner that I never know what is going to upset it. I'm almost afraid to touch anything once I get it going. I don't fly it much.
  6. I personally don't notice a pause when it saves but I have, or at least think I have a pretty high end system. I have a macro for one of the buttons on my keyboard to do a quick save but I have to be there to press it. I tend to get rid of FSUIPC for a while but sooner or later I'll have a crash or two then I'll put it back in for the autosave. Then repeat that cycle over time. I've even been inspired to try to learn some coding so I could make a simple program to just autosave behind the scenes like FSUIPC but I imagine starting from zero the amount of learning is mountainous just to do that one thing.
  7. I will double the remove the FSUIPC.ini suggestion even if you don't have any profiles specific the 747 or anything else. Over the years I have had problems with things caused by FSUIPC that had nothing to do with anything I have ever set up in FSUIPC. If I could find another way to autosave I would be done with it completely.

    Paintkit availability for 747-8s?

    The Del Taco by my house is open 24 hours. I can bring Tacos.

    [23SEP18] FSX 747 Users: URGENT READ THIS

    Success! There was never any doubt 😁
  10. That's the way I always do it. It didn't work in my case.
  11. I installed successfully on FSX, P3Dv3 and v4 on one computer. The only one that didn't work was FSX SE on a different computer.
  12. I am seeing this in FSX SE only and on a different computer for the one I flight sim on. I only use that for checking repaints so it didn't really bother me. I too followed the instructions and did not deactivate my license before uninstalling. The interesting thing is that I uninstalled the latest version of the -400 and reinstalled the last working version since I still have the installer. When I did that it started normally and did not ask me for my key.

    PFPX profile for the 747-8

    I started with the 747-400 GE profile, changed the weights, set the cruise fuel bias to -17% and changed to optimum altitude adjustment to +2000. I may actually have to change the altitude adjustment though because about half the time the step climb is just past the TOC. I seem to remember adjusting the climb fuel bias too but I can't for the life of me remember where I did that. It's not a real performance profile but it seems to get me pretty accurate fuel burns.

    PFPX profile for the 747-8

    I am using PFPX for testing and just started out with the 747-400 profile and played with the bias and made a few other changes for the weights and all and came up with a profile that seems to work. There were changes made to the plane during testing so I have had to tweak it as we went along. On my last flight the projected fuel burn was pretty close to the actual burn so it seems to work.

    Hot and High variants

    American Airlines Sharklet A319s have the night altitude button too. The button also increases the altitude for the high cabin altitude warning and the altitude the oxygen masks will automatically deploy.
