  1. My recommendation is to not use FSUIPC for the yoke or rudder, reset the calibration for your controls to default in Windows, and set the sensitivity to 50% in FSX for your yoke and rudder. It flies very nicely for me following this procedure. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  2. Just like the NGX, ifmyou turn the battery on, then press and hold the "MENU" key on a CDU forma few seconds, the CDU will turn on. Then you can use it to connect ground power. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk 4
  3. Add to that: - automatic time compression to drastically reduce cruise time for long hauls - winds aloft data can be imported from Active Sky directly to the FMC - a huge amount of customizable airline options that can be changed in real time via the CDU's - ground services, push back, refuelling, loading, and realistic, adjustable ground turnaround procedures all via the CDU's - Incredible textures and modeling inside and out, as expected they are vastly improved when compared to the Level D 767 - service based failures, with adjustable wear rate - automated livery installer - cargo version Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk 4
  4. Screenshots, or better yet, video would certainly help. Also, unless you have eliminated all variables and have concrete evidence to support your claims, you have nothing acceptable to support your claims that the issue is caused by PMDG. I work as an engineer, and I have to troubleshoot technical issues on a regular basis. I will not make a claim with certainty unless I can provide evidence to support my claim. Just a suggestion, take it or leave it. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk 4
  5. The manuals supplied with the aircraft are the actual Boeing documents, and therefore are protected by copyright law. That is why they are locked and not printable. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk 4
  6. No problem, PMDG did the same thing with the NGX, FYI. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  7. Turn the batteries on, then hold down the Menu key on one of the CDUs, after a few seconds it should come alive. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  8. Thanks for taking the time to offer these suggestions! I will give some of them a try. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk 4
  9. It hasn't been years, the PMDG 777 has been in developement for only around 18 months.
  10. A few questions if I may: 1. Is there a discount for prior TOPCAT owners, or is the VATSIM discount the only offer? 2. Is it possible to run PFPX and TOPCAT on a second, networked computer, separate from the computer running FSX?
  11. And it only took what, like 1.5 years of development? I think that is the quickest product timeline so far for PMDG. All the "what's taking so long" , "just release it already", and "its taking forever" folks just got a reality check. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  12. I am a sucker for for authentic, "study-sim" products such as those from PMDG, A2A, VRS, Majestic, etc. In the case of Milviz, their products are quite a bit cheaper, but still deliver a very satisfying product, especially with the flight dynamics, sounds, and visuals. To compare their 737 to the NGX isn't fair IMO. The NGX took much longer to produce, and costs around $20 more, so I would expect the NGX to have some aspects that are different when compared to the Milviz 737. Anyways, I really like this aircraft and at least Milviz is responsive and willing to finish the product. I know this was a huge undertaking for Milviz, but I hope they do well enough with this product to make it worth making more airliners. They could make a 707, 727, 747-200, L-1011, or DC-10 since none of these have been done for FSX to the level of Milviz quality. Military wise, a C-130 or C-5 would also be great. I hope this 737 does not remain the first and only airliner from Milviz. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
  13. The NGX gets higher fps fore me as well. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  14. Android. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
  15. It is highly accurate and realistic, even down to circuit breakers and their interaction with various systems, it has failures, a nav simulator that makes finding/tuning stations very simple, checklists, situation states, a load manager, and good flight dynamics. Add in the McPhat HD liveries and virtual cockpits, and you get fantastic looks to go with all the functional features. IMO, it is the best overall steam gauge, jet airliner for FSX at the moment.

  16. Regarding #1, from what I understand the 737NG and likely the 767 as well have EEC, which prevents certain engine issues such as hot starts and other operator error issues. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
  17. What they mean is that every other product PMDG has developed in the past have independend CDUs and NDs, so, by analogy, why would it be different in the 777 or any other future product? Exactly. I dont see them taking a remedial step with the 777. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD everything you say is right, but my question is one other. the PMDG 777 has two (M) CDU and ND independent displays? everything you say is right, but my question is one other. the PMDG 777 has two (M) CDU and ND independent displays? Do you want to place a bet on whether the FMC and ND displays will be independent in the PMDG 777? My money says they will be independent. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
  18. My bad: Edited my post before you replied and had to edit mine again once more. Sorry ... No worries. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
  19. AFAIK: - CDU: yes. - ND: no. Hmm, I consider independent configuration of the ND's as meaning they are independent. This is possible in the 747x and NGX, was it not possible with 737 NG for FS9? Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
  20. All of their Boeing releases have had this characteristic. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
  21. Unlikely a NGX issue, mine requires a little thrust to keep it moving. What does the thrust look like when you have your joystick throttle at idle? Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
  22. I know that feeling too well. I work in a fairly technical field, and the "this should be simple/easy/cheap", and "this should just work" comments drive me nuts. If you don't know what you are talking about, or don't have facts to support your claims, be respectful or keep it to yourself. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
  23. The question is whether the time and costs required to produce a flight simulator are worth the potential financial returns. Think about how much resources it would take to produce something of the level that Microsoft did with FSX. Manpower, knowledge, experience, capital, legal concerns, time, data/research, platform, marketing, etc. are just some of the issues/challenges facing anyone who wishes to produce the next most popular flight simulator. Microsoft had many versions to build off of, and massive resources towards the end. Look at what happened with Flight. I imagine bringing a complete flight simulator to market is massively more difficult and less financially rewarding than you think. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
  24. Sigh. A repair as well as a full reinstall did not fix this issue. I dont have the time to troubleshoot this further, and I certainly am not reinstalling FSX :blink:, so sadly my MD-11 is indefinitely out of service. Sent from my GT-N8013 using Tapatalk HD
