  1. Tom That sounds very disappointing. I've never had oom but I understand that some folk do & that must be very annoying. So, 64 bit is a lot of hype then? I really thought it would make a huge difference. Thanks for your input anyway.
  2. I'm looking forward to it. I'm no PC buff but if 64 bit brings fluid smooth flight that would be a great starting point. One thing that really disappoints & probably won't be addressed is the speed at which clouds pass the aircraft in flight. Years ago there was a military sim which had the clouds blasting by like it does in a real aircraft, it was so much more dynamic, so much more fun.

    Invalid Activision Key

    Hi I get this issue & found that no matter how careful I am in getting the number correct it fails. However, if you copy & paste the number it works every time. I've noticed this with other software venders too. Hope that helps you out.

    Using iPad apps as the CDU interface

    I use virtual CDU with the 737 NGX & it's great. Have spent many thousands of pounds on a full set of avionics for PMDG's original 737 on FS 9 I'm delighted with this set up for fractions of the cost. It works very well.
  5. Release Hold! I'm sorry to all at PMDG-I've decided to hold my money for another few days or so. I was going to tease you with pictures or little glimpses of my money, I wanted you to see just a sneak peek of my credit card, I wanted you to notice the incredible detailing on it. I've been working flat out putting the notes together & it would have been easy to let you have months ago but no, I want to uphold my firm commitment to quality so that when you get your hands on it you will appreciate just how much work as gone into it! I'm planning on releasing it some time this week, subject to the usual constraints & providing my wife doesn't bend the car or stick another nail through the plumbing. I can't say for sure which day it will be but I feel confident that you will be spending it by the weekend. I'll keep you updated.

    Engines not responding to Thrust Lever Input

    Hi FabioI have the same yoke as yourself but I use GoGlight throttles, however, if I go back to the Eclipse yoke I can only replicate your problem when engines are not running.What have you changed or added in the last couple of days? If you were to apply thrust on your yoke but the throttles weren't moving in the NGX then it would be an assignment or calibration issue.Please confirm that you have engines running when trying the above?

    IRS Align problem

    Try moving the plane to a well known international airport & select a gate (small). Then go through normal IRS align procedure (both off then nav). On 'POs Init' page use mouse & scratch pad, not keyboard,enter airport code & gate number. Providing gate produces coordinates select those coordinates & enter into bottom line. This should guarantee that when the IRS align you will be spot on. If the gate does not produce coordinates move to another gate until you find one that does. The airport coordinates themselves will be close but the gate will be spot on.

    Climb Performance Problems

    Sorry about above. I've sorted climb problems. The 747 was very simplified & automated when it came to CDU use & the FMC. So I looked closely on a flight with respect to my entries in the CDU & I could sees that I was missing certain inputs. I've since done six flights taking care to fill every line during the CDU inputs & the aircraft has performed as it should. With a combination of weights, fuel loads it was spot on. So, try for yourself, I'm sure that climb problems will improve for you too.

    Climb Performance Problems

    I had similar problem Gawick-Cork. In the 747X could get to FL380 easy, on this flight I noticed T/C & T/D were almost together & I only managed FL250 before descent. ASE weather engine with REX textures-Gatwick & Cork Extreme-ENB-Ezdok.With same set up, Dublin-Edinburgh, no issues. Edinburgh Extreme also.On another flight I got unable next altitude, only needed 8000ft climb with 56miles to go from FL260. Empty aircraft load & light fuel 10000lbs! Ground temp at departure 12c/54F, Gatwick 200above sea level. TST at FL260 -25. Tried de ice just in case but made no difference.Sim running very smooth with good frames 25-28 much better than 747x so it beats me!Also getting the same issue with mouse & after saving flight FSX crashes, every time. Not had that before ever.Intoduction read, Loaed all pop ups during install + added files to cfg. Sent cfg to be adjusted as per intro!Also had some serious trouble with contollers for some reason & I'm still working on that. Everything worked great on the 747x. Well it's bedtime now so I'll try again tomoorow. System is i7 Windows 7 Pro. 8gig ram, 1.8gig Nvidia 360gtx.

    Troubles To Install PMDG-737NGX

    If you scroll down the email confirmation from PMDG towards the bottom you will see:-Licence:Below that is a 24 digit code. Copy & paste that. Hope this helps.Sorry I forgot. Make sure that you said yes to all the run time messages during install. Look in the PMDG manuals & read the introduction. Some editing of the fsx.cfg file is necessary to get the best from the product. This is a must read.
