  1. Keep in mind that not only are the systems for the Boeing 747-8 different from that of the Boeing 747-400, they've also been trying to get planes updated for P3D V4, so doing all this is going to take a significant amount of time. I vaguely remember somebody saying the Boeing 777-300ER got released 10 months after the Boeing 777-200LR did, so that should give you somewhat of an idea. I'm going to reword this one only because the way you said it makes it sound like it's a suggestion. PMDG requires you to post your full name on their forums.
  2. A2A Cessna 172 is a good one. For weather, I have ActiveSky 2016, and that's also a good one. Scenery ultimately depends on where you want to fly, so you're going to have to be specific about that. FSDreamteam and Flightbeam are some good scenery developers, but if you don't fly commercial, their airports won't do you any good.
  3. It was noticeable in the original product when it was released. Then they toned it down after the first update, and now I can't even tell it's there.
  4. What might be happening is that pushing that button might be pushing your thrust out of idle enough to cause them to retract. In a situation like that, I normally just hit F1, which puts the thrust levers back at idle.
  5. Literally the last post in the following thread, which, after your posts, actually got the thread locked: Key words: "It was literally being worked on last weekend, and continues to be worked on." And.... "I have, and no single person on this team has, ever claimed that this is a minor bug. If it were minor, it would have been fixed well before now. Simple code fixes are simple code fixes. What you may be (and I would, at this point, argue 'intentionally') misinterpreting is that we (and others) have mentioned that the issue you're seeing is minor, in the sense that it doesn't affect the usability of the product, your obsessive compulsions aside." There you go. Happy? I could go on, but Chris pretty much covered it, so I'm not going to waste my time, but it only took me all of about two seconds to find the last post about it. Actually, I don't know that unless you tell me.
  6. Would be helpful to know what simulator.
  7. And you'd probably get a quicker response by submitting a support ticket.
  8. I just discovered something. FSX boxed version has a change log, FSX Steam version does not.
  9. If you go to the FCOM on page 9.10.12, you will note that the plane is doing exactly what it is supposed to. And if you go to the QRH on page 9.4, 9.6, and 9.12, you will note that the plane is doing exactly what it is supposed to do. Sure, leave the alternate flaps alone. I don't know why you're messing around with it in the first place. If you go to the FCOM on page 9.20.14, it tells you, but basically, unless you have a major problem with the flaps, there's no reason why you should be touching it in the first place. No, I don't need it anymore, as your updated description confirmed what I suspected. In any event, for future reference, go to a photo hosting website like Photobucket or Imageshack, upload the picture there, and post the link here.
  10. Have a look at the FCOM, starting from section 9.10.10 for flap indication. Not sure if this helps, although seeing only two columns is unusual. It's normally one, but if you have an abnormal situation, you should see four columns. I'd have to see a screenshot to see what you're looking at.
  11. The initial post mentioned P3D V4, so I'm guessing this is a P3D specific issue. I haven't noticed anything running FSX Steam.
  12. PMDG?

    My bad. I guess I had assumed it would have been moved there since more people would be likely to help with the thread being there versus here.
  13. PMDG will most likely not support what it is you're trying to do, so you're doing this at your own risk. In any case, go to the intro manual, page 47, that'll tell you the file you need to edit to attempt to do what it is you want with the navigation data. Make sure you back up that file, though, so in case things don't work out the way you expect it to, at least you can revert it. I vaguely remember seeing somebody post something about the second thing, but again, you're doing it at your own risk.
  14. Looks like you also have another problem with regards to fuel imbalance.
  15. I'd suggest moving the panel states to a temporary location, then load the installer up and run the repair option to see if that'll bring back the panel states. It looks like they made some changes to the systems of the plane that affected the panel state, as I had the same two messages that Jan had when I loaded my own panel states. The default PMDG panel states shouldn't have this issue.
