  1. I wish I could try after PMDG. I did it once in Amsterdam on a 737 sim, unfortunately it was before the PMDG 737 was release, though I had purchased in advance the Full 737 documentation set printed by PMDG in top quality, and had gone through it so I was really not lost, and it went actually quite well even though I had 0 experience at all :) But for sure the PMDg products are a really good trainer. The things I recall always the most except the obivous realism of the real cockpit/systems as well as movement, is really the weight of the yoke. I don't know for any other Boeing aircraft than the 737 but it sure felt heavy after the four hour time in the sim I sure had my arms a bit stiff, as obviously I flew a lot manually as spending time there with the autopilot would not be as interesting :D Anyway I sure think that for any one that can have the chance to have a ride in one of these that it's really a great experience :)
  2. I'm not sure but I would say they probably don't really know either at Lockheed Martin and PMDG. Though I can tell you that the general process is that they have a big patch day each months the "patch tuesday", and that usually it's around the middle of the month, so there might be Windows updates releasing tomorrow, but no way of knowing what will be inside. Usually Microsoft now almost never make patch avaialble on a daily basis unless they have to fix a really critical bug.
  3. It could be the shortcut is missing. If I'm correct it should be installed in your c:\Program Files (x86\ probably under a PMDG menu. I unfrotunately cannot check while at work that it is the correct location but try to have a look there after install. I'm sure other will provide a perfect directory location.
  4. Well I'm not really sure. But I would say the DC-6 might be the only one really having a use of this kind of addons. But I'd say if you have issue with it on the right hand cursor you should probably check in with PMDG support :) All other currently available aircrafts are coming with all that is needed and so don't have any need for such an addon.
  5. Well that's a good thing to know, hopefully I'm on a Pro Windows 10 so updates are on hold until further notice from PMDG :) Hopefully if there are any security updates I can apply them manually to stay safe in the time it takes for the issue to be sorted.
  6. x-plane 11

    Just be patient, unless the plan has cahnged they were to do at least two projects on XP, one which is the DC6 by making it first in XP and then port it to FSX/P3D, and a second one which would be the other way around make it first on FSX/P3D and then port it to XP, which has yet to come and could be anything. We'll have to wait for anouncements. In the end both simulators are great each with their own pros and cons. P3D right now is still my main plateform, but I'm also one that would like more PMDG quality level products on XP, because on some area it just does much better, an example is the night environement which just always amazes me, also I'm really curious on when they'll get to use Vulkan/Mantle for rendereing as it could boost the performances significantly removing a lot of the overhead that there is with OpenGL/DirectX (below version 12). It's always good that their is two sims as it generate some competition, which can lead to interesting advances for us in the end :)
  7. Ahah yes it was a feature of the aircraft back in FSX :) Of course it's there in P3D because the aircraft is much "lighter" than the heavies in terms of animations and all that allow to have rain effects on the windshield :)
  8. The question is did you uninstall before installing the update. It is required for the latest update that you remove the aircraft through the Windows "Add or remove programs" screen. And then once uninstalled you should install the new version. If you simply ran the latest updater and chose Repair or Modify it could be a reason for the issue.
  9. 1. Not usefull what's the point of updating the model if it has no impact on performances, fuel consumption and all, I believe if they were to make it that would not be just an aesthetical update. That being said the 737 is now an old product I'm not sure it's worth going back to it add one option like this and not make other updates, maybe the Max version for example. Or maybe there would be a 737NG v3 who knows. 2. Did you check the AVSIM files, because there seem to be a lot of repaints available for PMDG so it might already be there.
  10. Let them do their work. They have made the DC6 which you can already enjoy in X-Plane since more than a year, they have just ported it to FSX/P3D and there should be some maintenance update going back to the XP version at somepoint. Then they are on their plan which they explaine quite ssometime ago that after this product made for XP first and then for FS/P3D they would do anbother product for FS/P3D first that would then get ported to XP. After which they will be able to have a good knowledge on what's the best way to have the same addons on both simulators. So it's not usefull to demand or ask, they have already their process for this. Unless something has changed. When there is some news on that front they'll tell us :)
  11. Well they did gave information not so long ago if you read the pinned post Robert's made in the last couple of weeks. On July 23th the latest information was : So it's progressing along well and is approaching beta testing, meaning there will still be quite sometime before it get's released. We probably will have information once the beta testing actually starts. I don't think there is anything worth to be added by PMDG before that.
  12. I'm lucky enough to have a good job that allow me to spare a good amount of money each month, so with a good reserve it's no big deal, and then I just spare as usual and the "hole" will be filled quite quickly.
  13. Hahah not so much a beating :) Imagine mine after I actually purchased the P3D version of the 737NG and expension, 777-200LR and extension and 747-400 all at once once they started getting available. Was meant also to avoid a bit of the transaction fee as I'm not in the US :)
  14. You can probably speed up things for deactivating by turing down all P3D settings. As I suppose you're about to remove P3D for your system.
  15. I think it completely depends on carrier. as an Example with Air France in my country, there are 4 classes (Premiere/Business/Premium/Economy), and even on the same varient 777-300ER they have 4 configurations : 296, 322, 381, 468. You can have a look at http://www.seatguru.com it has details cabin plans for a lot of airlines and aircraft type
