  1. This is the second installment of the NGX tutorial. Where the previous version took you from cold and dark to completion of the CDU preflight procedure, this continues the setup procedure up to the point where you are ready to go through the preflight checklist. In addition to correcting errors and typos in the first version, I have added around 45 pages of new material. The intended audience ranges from those that are completely new to Boeing-type addons in FSX, to those who know how to get in the air and land, but would like a more solid understanding of the airplane and its systems. The main advantage over the extensive documentation supplied by PMDG is that this tutorial is designed to be read sequentially rather than to be used as a reference. You can download it here: http://stickleback.d...P11/NGXvol1.pdf (A4 format) or here: http://stickleback.d...11/NGXvol1L.pdf (Letter format). I hope you enjoy it, and any feedback is most welcome.
  2. Here is some pics from my tutorial flight... Enjoy.
  3. Well, after days of work getting my FS environment setup I've finally completed the 737NGX tutorial #1! What a beautiful plane! It was tough going at first. I had quite a bit of trouble getting everything setup and adjusted. I'm using Saitek X-65F HOTAS along with the SST software and have the basic functions mapped out but that took awhile and I still have work to do. I'm using TrackIR V5 (w/o Pro) for the first time and I had a dickens of a time getting it setup to work properly for me. I really had a hard time with the profiles. I found that the default profiles didn't work at all for me. I had setup a completely new profile that is much more sensitive to my movements. I finally have it setup so that I don't have to move my head too far to see everything I need to see in the cockpit. I had a few crashes at first and found that replacing the UIAutomationCore.dll has helped. At first I was running FSX in windows but I just completed the tutorial in full screen mode (but only using one of my two monitors). I'm not sure what final monitor configuration I will end up with. I'd like to be able to use both screens at some point. Last night I had one screen freeze in the first part of the tutorial... I thought it had crashed but after about 5 seconds it started up again and I was able to complete with no further problems. I'm using FPS Framelimiter 2.0 and ran my configuration file through *******' site. I pretty much followed all of the advice and settings recommended in the NGX Introduction document. I'm getting great frame rates, though I don't trust what FSX is telling me (15fps?). It looks and feels much higher than that. The included documentation is excellent and most appreciated. However a panel layout for all of the screens showing all switch locations and functional areas would be appreciated. Yes, this information can all be pieced together from the FCOMs and other sources but I think a simulation of this quality deserves a few pages of switch/layout information. Thank you to Ryan for the great tutorial... looking forward to part 2. And thank you to all of the PMDG crew for the most realistic, and beautiful, FSX aircraft I've seen. The challenge now will be how to find the time to learn and fly both the 737NGX and DCS's A-10 (another beautiful airplane). John
  4. I just completed printing ALL of the documentation that is delivered with the PMDG 737-NGX. This includes the Introduction & Use, Tutorial One, Quick Reference Handbook, The Flight Crew Training Manual, and both Volumes of the Flight Crew Operations Manual. I thought I would save some money. Here are my thoughts and conclusions on this massive project. MY COSTS: Paper- I bought a case of copy paper from Office Depot on sale for $30.00. I used 7 packs of 10 so $21 total. Ink- My computer has refillable ink cartridges and I buy bulk ink. Estimated $20.00 on ink. Binders- 6 four inch binders @ $12 each. 2 three inch binders @ $7 each, so $86.00 on binders. Chapter Dividers- $25 Time- Esoteric estimation: 40 hours actual. While the printer was doing it's thing, I was collating, punching and installing previous print runs (50 pages to each print run). Made the chapter dividers, reloaded ink, made the exterior binder pages, etc. I already had the printer and ink, the paper slicer, and three hole punch. If you don't have these items, add another $35.00 to the price tag. I could have paid one of my grandkids to do this, and that would have been another $100. If your printer doesn't have refillable ink cartridges, you could add another $40.00 in ink costs. My fingers hurt, my eyes are going buggy, I broke my office chair rolling constantly from the printer to the computer and now my printer makes strange noises and emits a faint burning smell. Conclusion: If anyone wants me to do this for them, the cost is $2500. I really should have bought this: http://www.precision...3&idcategory=20
  5. I'm still working out how to fly the big planes, so I followed the tutorial. Great work, PMDG! I've been following a few of these tutorials, and this is the first one that actually taught me something and allowed me to finish a full flight first go. Most of the other ones I've done for other 737s have required a bit of work to finish. However, a couple of small things. First, the SIDs/STARs aren't actually in the document as promised on page 15. Second, I couldn't get the HGS working following the instructions in the tutorial. Mind you, I haven't been able to get it working full stop, so I suspect operator error. (Update: Corrupted DLL.XML was the problem). One other point, unrelated to the tutorial: I'm finding that when I save and load a flight the plane configuration gets completely lost at least some of the time. I had a look in the manual and didn't see any special button I should be pressing, so does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Robert Ewing
