  1. some first shoots on P3D v4 for the most popular addon in the entire sim world guys i hope you like it. ;P cheers
  2. I have an issue with PMDG737ngx after I installed A320x from Simlabs. I use Prepar 3D V4.1. A320x works fine. And before the a320x pmdg works fine to. But when I have installed a320x I cant load pmdg. Pmdg issuemesseger when I load the PMDG 737NGX in the sim "Cant crate the workfiles" Then the p3d crash. When I contact simlabs they say that they have customers with simlabs and pmdg. And it works for them. But somting i wrong here!! P3dv4.1 and windows 10. :(
  3. Hi! I have a serious problem with my 737NGX - P3D version. I use it together with FS2Crew and simserver but otherwise vanilla P3D v3 Sometimes (not always) when i choose gear up or gear down the aircraft freezes (displays, control surfaces, gear). When this happen in gear up one way to fix it is to click the left PFD to get it as a separate window, the aircraft then suddenly returns to normal. When gear down that does not help but sometimes it has helped to do the same with the FOs right PFD. Is this something known and/or how do I fix it permanently?
  4. Hello, I am trying to install AIRAC 1804 to PMDG 737NGX. I am using Navigraph. It says in the NavData Manager that the AIRAC is 1804. But on Ident on the FMC in aircraft it says it has AIRAC 1108. I tried to enter the path manually under: - Prepar3D/ - Prepar3D/PMDG Both do not work.
  5. A vast internet spanning a gazillion terabytes and no one has ever made a written or video tutorial about how to get the front end roof, sides and nose textures to align properly on the 737NGX paint kit. Is there a gem out there I am missing? Every single YouTube tutorial on painting the NGX is done with an easy livery that requires no thought what so ever about the front nose and roof texture alignment. When one paints a very detailed no repeating texture or gradient fill on the front, aligning textures becomes a nightmare I have discovered. The concept of how the sides of the plane bend down and the roof texture bends with it but splits apart at the seams on the 2D texture map is just breaking my brain. Is there no easy way to get a complex texture to align right? Are we stuck with solid color paints on the roof and nose for life? I have been struggling for days to finish up this Frozen One livery but I can't get rid of the front nose seams where the sides and roof come together. The entire plane is painted to be covered in ice crystals and snowflakes which creates unique patterns which do not align on the nose of the plan worth a darn. I can't find any tutorials on overcoming this problem. Anyone else find one?
  6. Hi guys! I've experienced a blue weird terrain problem in my fsx. I used ENB but deleted it because i thought maybe that was the problem but its still blue. You can see here: http://gyazo.com/36bcb03a5421052e1bf73082f5319857 Thanks guys and have a good day! /Jacob
  7. Hi. Amongst myself, as the FSX world has more and more MPDG users, I've been deciding what aircraft to... invest in. This has really been bugging me. I see a bunch of videos with the NGX, and they look awesome! Then I see videos of the 777, and they look awesome too! So, I have decided to turn to the simmers I trust, asking for your personal opinion on which plane I should buy: PMDG 737NGX ---OR--- PMDG 777? In your reply, I would appreciate you include: a.) FPS you have encountered with either aircraft. b.) detail-wise, what looks more realistic? c.) to all you pilots out there, which of the two aircraft handles more realistically? d.) does the simulator stutter randomly with either/both aircraft? e.) do either/both aircraft make FSX more prone to CTD's? f.) For my last question, I will provide my system specs: Processor: Intel i7 Quad Core Processor speed: 2.67 GHz (a bit underpowered) RAM: 8gb Video Board Manufacturer: NVIDIA Graphics Card: NVIDIA NVS 3000 video card (nothing fancy, but does something). OS: Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit So, given your opinion, how well do you thing either/both the aircraft would perform on my system (PC)? Thank you very much of you intend to reply! Joe.
  8. The PMDG 777 has the RAAS system (runway announcement) Is there anyway to apply this to the 737NGX?
  9. just purchased 737NGX installing on -i7-3.5GHz-16GB Ram-win7x64-1TB SSD-21.5MBs download-in C:/FSX not x86-no other apps running-virus off App installed quickly then started "Download DirectX" - Now 3-1/2 Hours and slider only 75% - no issues with download connection on my end - slowly moves thru SDK updates from 2007 thru 2010 and repeats. Is this normal???
  10. New product - new install 737ngx. i7-3.5GHz-16GB Ram-Win7x64-1TB SSD-21.5MBs download-virus scan off-no other apps running-FSX in C:/fsx not x86-FSX with Acceleratorpack Now past 3-hours and still "Installing Direct-X" going back to 2007 and forward to 2010 and repeat - slider is progressing to about 75% but L O N G time. Seems as though application installed quickly but this install of DirectX seems ridiculously slow. This was of course initiated by the v1.0 installer as purchased. Is this normal??
  11. Hi all! So. In every flight with PMDG 737NGX im getting an problem that destroys my flight. After departure and when i reached my final altitude everything is fine. LNAV and VNAV is on such as Autothrottle. The plane is following the ''Purple line'' on the navigation display and everything works perfectly until about 70-100 Nautical Miles (NM) from Top of Descent (T/D). My plane starts to fly it own way and its not following the Purple Line. Then the plane starts to descent slowly and after a while it starts to climb again above my Maximum Altitude. Its like rollercoaster. I tried to disconnect LNAV and VNAV and CMD A (Command A) and sets up the plane right. I then turn LNAv and VNAV such as CMD A. It dont work, the plane does the rollercoaster and won't follow the route correctly. What am i doing wrong? I've set up everything right (I think) and have watched many YouTube flights from famous YouTuber's and flown them myself but still getting the problem. Anyone out there who has/have the same issue? Here are some screenshots at my situatuon. http://gyazo.com/ded79aad6fcf7201ec3dacf958a7b2da http://gyazo.com/a0375bd940e5f423b66f522e811dbb3f Thanks!
  12. This is a question for those who use PFPX and the PMDG planes. Recently I switched to PFPX for my flight planing, and I really like it. Coupled with TopCat, it really plans the flight using not just the routing but everything else in between. And then it exports the plan to my PMDG aircraft. But right now, I'm a bit confused about how to use this application with the 737/777. If I run PFPX first, and use it to populate the pax, cargo and fuel, then I have to go into the FMS and manually change the data there. OR - should I launch FSX and the aircraft, create the load figures (fuel, pax, etc.) and then go to PFPX and enter that data manually? PFPX doesn't differentiate classes or types of pax, PMDG does. So I'm asking if anyone up here has a preference with this stuff. Would it be better to build my load on PMDG and then carry it over to PFPX, or create the figures in PFPX (i.e. random) and then manually enter them in PMDG? I'm going to post this to the PFPX forum, also.
  13. I'm trying to activate the package and when I'm pressing Activate, I get the following message: 737NG Activation ERROR: Unable to connect to activation server. Please check your internet connection and try again. I saw previous thread on this problem and that was a server problem, fixed by PMDG. I was just wondering if someone else have the same problem as me today or if my job internet connection has some ports blocked.. Thanks to reply if you are experiencing the same issue. Mikedepo
  14. Hi I purchased the PMDG737NGX and I'm bussy with learning all the systems and I'm now in a stage I want to change the skin of the aircraft. So I went to the PMDG site and downloaded some skins and after that started my livery manager selected the file and it started loading and immediatly after crashed so I started again same happenend can anybody please help me?
  15. Hello,when i shut down my engines the half cocpit turns black.Im using flight simulator x,windows7 32bit.I uninstalled and re installed the pmdg 737ngx but nothing.Please help!!!
  16. Here are a few screenshots I took on my routes using the Boeing 737-700 and -600 by PMDG. All use default scenery. Trip #1 Southwest Airlines KMSY-KEYW (New Orleans - Key West) on the 737-700 Pushed out of gate, taxiing to the active: On the runway on takeoff run: Rolling to the right, about to fly over water: Flying over some of what I think are the keys: Just after touchdown: Flight #2 WestJet CYVR-CYWG (Vancouver to Winnipeg) on the 737-600 On take-off run on the active: A nice slice of Canada: These clouds don't look too nice: Cruising at 37K: Finally, landing in the snow at Winnipeg: Thanks for viewing my pictures, they do need more work... default scenery isn't the prettiest!
  17. I have just reformatted my HD, and wish to re-install my PMDG products. I have the following files; PMDG_737_6700_NGX.zip PMDG_737_6700_NGX_3118_SP1b.zip PMDG_737_6700_NGX_3118_SP1c.zip PMDG_737_8900_NGX.zip PMDG_737_8900_NGX_3057_SP1.zip PMDG_737_8900_NGX_3118_SP1b.zip PMDG_737_8900_NGX_3219_SP1c.zip PMDG_737_8900_NGX1.zip PMDG 737 6700 NGX RTM PMDG 737 8900 NGX SP1 In what order do I need to install these files? Thanks,
  18. Dear PMDG, I've installed FSX on a Windows 8 Pro x64 clean installation. Initially I had some troubles (sporadic sys errors) with FSX. I solved everything uninstalling and re-installing FSX, following carefully this sequence: install FSX (Deluxe Edition), run FSX and load a flight (don't save), close FSX, restart system, install FSX-SP1, run FSX and load a flight (don't save), close FSX, install FSX-SP2, run FSX and load a flight (don't save), close FSX, restart system, run (manually) windows update, run / configure FSX settings. Then installed FSUIPC 4.853 add-on and AI traffic (WOAI). After this procedure FSX runs (for hours) without any problem. In this environment I've installed the PMDG MD-11 X that seems to work properly (I had some flights apparently without any trouble). Now, I would like to buy (and fly) the 737NGX, so the questions are: - Is the 737NGX compatible with this FSX / Windows 8 x64 environment? - If not, what are the known issues and what is PMDG doing to fix them? Andrea Windows 8 Pro x64 / Intel Core i7 3770 3.40 GHz / ASUS P8P67 PRO / RAM Kingston HyperX 16 GByte DDR3-1600 (4 x 4GByte) / SSD Samsung 830 512 GByte / ASUS nVidia GTX 460 1 GByte RAM / LCD LED Samsung Monitor 1920 x 1080
  19. I have tried a lot to make changes in the Panel cfg file: panel_Wide.cfg that is found in Drive:\...\SimObjects\Arircrafts\PMDG... and nothing I change seems to make a diference when I load the plane. For example I tried also to delete, hide, all the bitmaps like: PMDG_NGX_Main_Wide.BMP and even when they are not in the folder I still see the panel in the simulation. I also tred to change the CDU gauge so that only the screen part would show up as a collegue from the Forum suggested but with no result: " To display the screen of the CDU, I modify the panel.cfg of the PMDG 737-800NGX WL in the section CDU left I put: gauge00 = PMDG_737NGX! CDU_Screen, 0,0,390,625, L # 0 In P3D I open a new window with the left CDU. I drag the window to the screen and I OpenCockpits CDU dimensioned to fill the screen" Has anyone been able to make any changes and get good results? I am trying to make views for my homemade cockpit into separate LCD screens and would like to get rid of the frames of undocked windows that some time end up ovelapping another LCD screen due to the resize. Maybe this as been covered before but I could not find, Thank you, Luis.
  20. Hi guys, I'm enjoying the PMDG 737 NGX since the first hour. But since a few flights I got a very annoying problem. When I'm crusing everything is fine, until some sounds makes a annoying 'beep-beep-beep' sound. I checked everything and I think the best I can do is post pictures of it: This is a picture of the upper overhead. My master caution panel says in orange: OVERHEAD Then, when I cut the sound off by clicking on the ALT HORN cutout (http://www.b737.org..../dcpcspanel.jpg) everything seems fine, except the PASS OXY ON warning on the first picture. After several minutes the same 'warning' happens, only this time without sound (because I ignored it last time). This time, my master caution panel says: and my presurrisation changed into this (AUTO FAIL): So it has something to do with presurrisation. I hope someone can tell me exactly the problem, and how I can avoid it in the future. Regards,
  21. Hi Experts,I have purchased the new GoFlight GF-WP-6 Annunciator a week ago.I installed the new GFConfig V2.03 and I can configure the board via GFConfig.Starting FSX the board works depending on the selected aircraft.1. Beechcraft Baron (FSX idle) : e.g. "Stall", "GPS/Nav toggle" ...2. Boeing 737-800 (FSX idle) : working: "Stall", "Pull up", "GPS/Nav toggle", "Terrain" NOT working: "Master Alert", "Master Caution"3. Boeing 737-800 NGX (PMDG): does NOT work anything!So here my questions:1. Does anybody has some experience with the GF-WP-6 and PMDG 737 NGX?2. Is there any discussion already around this topic that I may have overseen? (surved a lot but could not find anything)Any hint are very much appreciated,
  22. It would be great if s.o. could help me - bought the add-on yesterday, still not able to load it properly - all displays are blank, no switches work, engines running but from the outside look shut off. CFG file checked according to "Introduction". Other add-ons work fine (e.g. Airbus Vol 1 + Vol. 2). Thank you very much. Petr
  23. I've compared the cockpit sound of the NGX (the WAV-file) to some video clips I have from some 737NG cockpits.One of them where the aircraft is just finished with one flight and preparing for another I find that the sound of the NGX does match.But of the other clip where the aircraft has been shut down for a night stop (video clip included) I find that the sound do not match. Take a look on the video clip and listen Regards Stig HaraldNorway
  24. Tomorow leaving for vacation. Only laptop with Euroscope with me :) Last shots of THE bird...
  25. Good evening, I'm having some performance issues while running the 737NGX in VC. I'll give you the most details as I can so you can really understand the problem. My system specs first (it's a brand new PC): -Mobo: Asus P8Z77-V -CPU: I7-2600K @3.4 Ghz -GPU: Gainward GTX570 -RAM: Gskill 8GB (4+4 Dual channel) -System SSD: Corsair Force GT 60GB -HDD where FSX is stored: WD 1TB -Power Supply: Corsair 850W The only addon I've been running with the 737NGX is REX 2.0. I've played the first PMDG tutorial with low traffic and clear skies and during the flight I've experienced very low FPS in VC, in a range from 13 to 22, with occasional peaks of 30 (I have set 30 FPS limit whit nVidia Inspector). When in external view, I always get 30 FPS. Before using nVidia Inspector i used to make my tests in LIPZ and I could see that FPS in VC were the same, while in external view were about 45-50 FPS (not having the FPS limiter). I've already modified my FSX.cfg with the Venetubo tool, but I couldn't get appreciable results. Here is how I set it, I think I did it right: I have also followed all the instructions for best performance written within the NGX Introduction manual. Now, the main question is: is it normal to get that low performance with that settings with such a high-end system? I ask you because I want to know if overclocking is the only way out. Cheers, Gianluca De Angelis
