    Bojote tweaking tool offline

    WHEW!!!! It's apparently back up. This post scared me - I have to know that I can always go to that website and get my FSX tweaks off properly.
  4. Reading through several posts on A2A's support forums, it appears that their new 172 does not currently model any torque or gyro effect during takeoff and climbout. Apparently, A2A were not happy with FSX's core flight dynamics in this regard, so they decided to simply abandon the FSX limited physics altogether (by purposely and unrealistically limiting torque effect in the 172's FDE), and instead plan to model torque and gyro effect with Accusim at some later point in the future. As it stands now, however, takeoffs and climbouts in the A2A 172 can be performed without any rudder input at all. Yikes much? This is a pretty glaring flight physics omission, especially when modeling a premium priced trainer aircraft! Frankly, the default FSX Cessnas are more realistic is this regard and I'm really scratching my head as to why A2A would release their 172 aircraft so 'underdeveloped'. I can understand A2A wanting to model flight physics in a much more accurate way than the FSX platform itself will allow, but to simply release an aircraft without torque and gyro effects at all is a little incomprehensible to me, especially given A2A's past accomplishments. Perhaps the A2A 172 is being targeted at a more enthusiast type of crowd, rather than more hardcore simmers with real-world flight experience, but I gotta admit that I just don't get it.

    Enough is enough I am going to sleep!

    Ok, I have been awake now for the last 72 hours straight waiting for PMDG to release the 777 and I haven't left the computer except to go to the bathroom and sometimes to play Battlefield 3. I can't take it anymore. I am dizzy and my vision is starting to get blurry and also I have to go to school tomorrow. Most of the people that play Battlefield are so retarded they can't even start a Flight Simulator plane, much less fly it and land. I also am starting to itch all over and I don't know why. I wish none of this ever happend now and that I could just go back to my old life. Signed, Gregory J. Hollen (PMDG Superfan)

    NEW PMDG FACEBOOK UPDATE !

    YES! I meant to say that also. "The 777 is at the Gate now after pushing the NGX aside". At least this is what I am getting from it. PMDG haven't refuted any of this if that tells you anything!!!! I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!! Signed, Gregory J. Hollen (PMDG Superfan)

    NEW PMDG FACEBOOK UPDATE !

    Guys, PMDG just updated their Facebook with two new pictures; one of them shows a 777 pushing the NGX off the runway!!! I'm taking this to mean that the 777 release is imminent, i mean maybe within hours. A bunch of people have said that when you see PMDG post pictures with hidden meanings then they are telling you in so many words that something is underway. See for yourselves : https://www.facebook.com/pmdgsimulations For reals I think this is it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Signed, Gregory J. Hollen (PMDG Superfan)

    Labor Day released confirmed?

    Hi, The Wall Street Journal article seem to make a strong inference that the 777 will be released on Labor Day (Monday, August 2) here in the USA. Can anyone at PMDG confirm this please? Thank you! Signed, Gregory J. Hollen (PMDG Superfan)

    Is the 777 built at KPAE IN Seattle?

    When did PMDG move to Seattle, or Everett, whatever? Is Randazzo running for Governor of Washington? This explains the delayed 777 release.

    What's Wrong With People On The Internet?

    Mark my word it's all a result of the forced fluoridation of public water supplies here in the USA. Because of this reckless and unresearched policy, we've now fostered a generation of cavity-free mutants who have access to internet technology and perhaps soon even Facebook. First we allowed the Government to build public restrooms, all the while during which we never blinked an eye, and now the fluoride scourge is upon us. Recreational Flight Simulation as we know it is doomed, DOOMED I tell you. And for the record, I did not vote for Obama!

    No More Microsoft Points

    Hey, at least your money took Flight! Thanks for supporting the home team and helping finance my new yacht. Cheers! Oh Jim, your salient wisdom and counsel brings order to chaos and light where once there was only darkness. Truly, Solomon himself could not have offered a more sagacious observation to our fellow simmers. I bow to you oh Leader of Men and Sage to the Gods!!!!
  12. I know, right???? Who cares about the T7 now.....
  13. Hi, Several of my fellow Flight Simulator Community members have both phoned and emailed me in recent days inquiring how they should occupy themselves in lieu of PMDG releasing their 777. While each individual has his or her own personal way of making time 'go faster', I personally find the following video to be quite helpful in taking my mind of the often very stressful world of our Flight Simulation hobby. The video is approximately 12 hours long and I recommend watching it from start to finish with minimal interruption. And, you're welcome Flight Simulator Community!!!

    Beta Video 2 - Requests, and More Tips and Tricks

    I decided it was my birthday also and elected to imbibe heavily at the same time as I watched your excellent video. Unfortunately, I fell asleep about 1/3 of the way through (your voice is curiously both seductive and soothing). Can someone please tell me me how it ended??? I heard that Skyler ends up killing Hank and Jesse ends up killing himself??? Ok, so why did Walter undo the outlet cover and get the fuse at the beginning of last week's episode? God, I hate being sober sometimes because it makes everything so confusing.

    Reverse Thruster

    Automatic reversion to ground idle after landing (what happens in the real aircraft) does not work right in the PMDG NGX 737; never has and apparently never will. I've long since given up ever trying to map reverse thrust to a joystick axis and now just press F1 on the keyboard after landing to manually spool the engines down to ground idle. Honesty, there are so many additional things like this wrong with the NGX sim that I really hate even messing with it anymore. Ground effect is messed up too and never works reliably. Maybe if/when PMDG build things for the Xplane platform, the Frankenstein approach to programming required by the prehistoric FSX engine will be a thing of the past. Trying to fit a complex sim add-on into the FSX or P3D is like trying to drive a square peg in a round hole. FSX and P3D are essentially general aviation simulators, and trying to Rube Goldberg these outdated and under-designed platforms with sophisticated add-ons is always an exercise in 'acceptable' compromise. The code of Omerta between developers and their customers when issues like this arise is standard fare: just don't talk about it and hope the software users will simply accept things the way they are, or even better, be beat down in the forum by loyal f_a_n_b_o_y_s until they become too frustrated to attempt further resolution.
