  1. Even with maximum brightness on the Main Panel "Back-lighting" the usual lighting will not come on. Notice the MCP is dark. Problem began today after the 10/12 update on the Ops Center. Here is the version installed. 1.20.8465 Using NGX 737-700WL
  2. Hi, I've been messing around with the NGX between both FSX:SE and P3Dv4, and couldn't help but notice the huge difference in the aircraft's external light textures (particularly NAV and Strobe lights). I did some reading and it appears that the lights are actually baked into the aircraft model and hence cannot be modified simply by replacing texture files. FSX Daytime Screenshot P3Dv4 Daytime Screenshot FSX Nighttime Screenshot P3Dv4 Nighttime Screenshot I do also believe that the a majority of the lighting is now handled by P3Dv4 itself (vs FSX where the lighting was managed by the aircraft model - could be wrong though), but why the drastic change in texture assets? My personal opinion is that P3Dv4's version of the navigation lights actually look more UNrealistic than that from real life. If i could figure out a way to change them to look more like FSX's, I would. Is this a lost cause? Thanks! JJ Ma
  3. i recently bought the PMDG 737. Everything works fine except for the HUD/HGS What can i do for fixing it? i already tried reinstalling but still happening
  4. When selecting an altitude in the FMC, how does it determine what my maximum FL is? I was doing a flight that my flight plan was selected to be 380. When I entered everything and got to the page to select my altitude, it said my max was 340. How does that get factored in? Does it have to do with my CI?
  5. Hi, Every time I've gone to fly the NGX in P3D V4 on a chartered flight in the ngx VNAV has failed about an hour into the flight. It also gives me problems on takeoff. Not sure if this has been reported yet. I'm flying with: Pro-ATC X and Active sky. Every autopilot function is disabled in pro-atc x is disabled and it's even happened without the software running. Thank you
  6. I did two flights today with the updated version. Prior to the update everything worked fine. Today in the -800 I had a minimums call at 30 feet when my baro was set for 200 minimums. Then in the -700 tonight, landing in PHX on RWY 26, baro set to 251 for ILS, I had no callout and the green indicator for the minimums was nonexistent. I couldn't even dial it in after landing and the altimeter was set correctly. Why am I having problems I never had before with the minimums call and recognition? I kinda think I missed some call outs on final too, which has been an issue in the queen. All other sounds work fine. And this is the only add-on that seems to have sounds missing now. Aside from that, even the baro setting was ignored on the PFD. I got the number but not the green triangle on the tape. ??
  7. Is it my imagination or have I got a bugged voice pack, but when passenger load one of them says "for F sake that's all I F ing need" I sure that's not right.
  8. Hi guys, I don't know how it's possible but I can use dynamic lights having very good performance with NGX (but had problems with it - www.avsim.com/forums/topic/514701-no-external-lights-illuminating-ground-when-dynamic-lighting-disabled/). Almost no FPS drops with stable 35 fps and very good graphics quality at FlyTampa Amsterdam on Vatsim! I would like to share my settings, so here you are... I'm just curious if my configuration helps you giving you better performance with Dynamic Lights enabled. Now I can use my landing and taxi lights at night without any stuttering. Prepar3D v4.0.28.21686 + UTX Europe + FTX Global Base + Active Sky 2016 + ASCA PMDG 737-800NGX v1.20.8414 Intel Core i7 4790K OC 4,7 GHz NVIDIA GF 980 GTX SSD
  9. Hi there, Yes, I read other topics about this but it does not solve my problem. So, as the title says: The NGX freezes time to time. These freezes are not recoverable and I simply hate them. FSUIPC Autosave is turned off, but that does not help at all. Computer Specs: - Intel i5 480M 2.66GHz (boost clock to 3.1GHz) - 8 GB DDR3 1666Mhz RAM - AMD RADEON HD 6370M (1GB VRAM) - Windows 10 Pro I have a lot of addons (like REX texture direct and ORBX Global + Vectors LC). Does anyone know any solution? Thanks in advance!
  10. Hi there guys. Discovered a bit of an issue with latest NGX version. I managed to replicate this issue twice. When you double click on the FMC 2D panel it causes the sim (P3DV4) to freeze up and hang, resulting in a crash. As far as my research shows I have found no other post about this. No error message or log is created either. My Specs: i7 6770K, GTX 970, P3DV4, PMDG NGX 737, ASP4, Aivlasoft EFB, REX Soft Clouds, Orbx Global, Fly Tampa Schipol. Cheers, Voumani Madonko
  11. Hi Brian and all, I purchased and installed the FS2Crew NGX Reboot today for P3Dv4 along with the 777. Both installers run as administrator and P3Dv4 also run as administrator, with the 777 working as advertised. The NGX will accept voice commands and respond, however the FO will not actually action any items (neither physically or any sounds of levers/switches moving). The log within the manager confirms that the commands have been received. I have the latest version of P3Dv4 and have attempted to repair the installation of both the NGX and FS2Crew. I have also tried completely removing and reinstalling FS2Crew. I have also confirmed that SDK broadcast setting is correct and the FS2Crew NGX panel entries are correct. System check results are as follows: I have had FS2Crew for FSX, FSX:SE and P3D v2 and v3 and never had any issues to date so I am positive I must have missed something somewhere. Any thoughts or suggestions? Cheers, Haydn
  12. Hi, In the real B738, I know that many sounds such as navigation aids, TCAS warnings, GWPS warnings & call outs are audible through the pilot headsets and/or the speaker of the aircraft. Is there any way of getting those warnings and callouts through the headset, whilst keeping all other sounds such as engines etc, on the main speakers? I don't mind getting hold of additional software or hardware to achieve this if I need to, I just don't know where to start. I have found ProSim737 and SimAvionics which will do the job, but I do not want to move away from PMDG as I am not ready to dive in to building a flight deck! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Phill Morgan
  13. Attention 737 Drivers, I'm happy to announce that FS2Crew NGX Reboot has been released for P3D V4! Everyone loves the PMDG 737 -it's probably the best selling FS addon ever- and now you can enjoy your crew with it in the best sim currently on the market - P3D V4! P3D V4 (64 Bits) is the future. If you're serious about simming, 64 Bits is where it's at. The performance gains are extremely good, and 64 Bits offers double the memory capacity, so OOMs should be a thing of the past if they were ever an issue for you before. So go get P3D V4! It's worth it! Important - If the FS2Crew FO is not flipping switches!!! You need to have the latest version of P3D V4 installed (4.0.28.21686) or later! If you don't, then the FS2Crew FO will not be able to slip switches or press buttons! So if you find the FS2Crew FO has his hands tied, go get the latest version of P3D V4 from Lockheed Martin! Like before, there are two versions available: A Captain's Set and a Regular Version. The only difference is the Captain's Set includes the unlocked version of RAAS for P3D V4. Free bonus! We're including the 737 Global FO Voice Set -a 20 Euro value. Note that the Global FO Voice set is built directly into the product. There is no separate installer for it. When you select your crew accent, the extra FO voice sets will automatically be available. Discount code! We're also offering a 5 Euro discount code to previous owners. Use coupon code: 73764 Have a safe flight! You can now fly two-crew in P3D V4 in your favorite 737!
  14. Does anyone know if alt tabbing while in flight messes things up? Twice now the ngx departed completely from lateral and vertical path with ap engaged. The only thing i did was alt tab. Also i fly with lekseecon live traffic and sometimes get quite a bit resolution adviseries. Could this be the cause? Regards, Roland roelofs
  15. P3dV4, AS16, ASCA, EDDM, GSX versus XP11, xEnviro, EDDM 4.01, Jardesign GHD, gate 116 (NGX vs IXEG) Same day, same gate (ixeg parked a bit more back), same weather, same time. 4790K @ 4.7, 980Ti, 4k monitor. Both sims stay around 30 fps, both smooth.
  16. Hello everyone, I am seeing something new with the NGX during manual turns. This happened along with the bunch of new installers we've got recently, everything was fine before. Passing 20° of bank, the plane gets out of coordination for one second then gets back coordinated. It feels like kind of kick which does not seem/feel right. Just to be complete, I fly without autocoordination, no weather program or FSUIPC. Just wondering if anybody experienced something similar and what was the most probable cause for this to happen. Again, I fly the NGX regularly and had never experienced this before. Happy flying
  17. Hello, I have installed the latest version of the NGX yesterday on FSX ( 1.20.8396 for the 800/900 ) & ( 1.10.6461 for the 600/700 Extension ) I wanted to ask about the beacon lights reflection on the engine ( Also available for the 777 both FSX & P3D ), since it's available for P3D V4.. I wonder if it's also available for FSX users ? Thank you very much :)
  18. Hello. I was wondering if anyone had any plans to make a fictional US Airways 737-800 or -900. I've looked all over on every flight sim website, and none are for the NGX. If someone could point out a nice repaint like this for me, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, -Joe
  19. A quick forum or Google search didn't reveal any obvious fix so here it goes. It's been a really long time since I've played FSX (SE version) so today when I tried to play and the scenario wouldn't load I decided to reinstall PMDG, since this problem appeared every time I used the 738 NG. I uninstalled PMDG, manually deleted the Operation Center folder on the Program Files and proceeded to download the latest installer. Everything went okay with the installation, except the Operations Center Updater, which every time I run it shows the following error: "Product Module 737NGX XSE.dll" has failed to download after 3 attempts. Please try again. I'll try restoring the Operation Center directory from the previous install, see if that fixes anything.
  20. I've installed the B738 for P3D4 Restarted PC Installed my fav liveries They don't show in P3D4 - only house-liveries aircraft.cfg file shows they are all there Obs-centre shows they are installed But no joy ... Any idea what, why, when, how to fix? Regards
  21. A big thank you to the PMDG team for the hard work they've done over this year. Fantastic to have the big three back in action in Prepar3D v4
  22. Just a question regarding liveries. I am about to uninstall NGX for P3dV3 so that i can reinstall for both v3 and v4. I think I have some liveries which were installed manually, and not from the PMDG liveries manager. Presumably I will lose all liveries on uninstall. My question is: can I just install my liveries manually from copies of the textures folders that I have taken from v3 (with appropriate adjustments to aircraft.cfg files) - will these be compatible with the v4 product?

  23. Hi. Has anyone seen a repaint for the PMDG 737 NGX 800-900 variants of a factory green primer, like when they come straight out of the factory at Renton? I see some, but they're for other addon 737s, and not the NGX.
  24. So I finally got the MCP from Opencockpits (v3, no box, Honeywell with backlight). I thought that this 'Plug and Play' product would be that, more or less. 3 hrs in, still scratching my head. This is for use with PMDG NGX in FSX. I understand that I need the connecting interface, SIOC, by the manufacturer, but there's another plugin required in order for it to communicate with PMDG. And this far I've only found this thing called OC4BA. The software is roughly 50€!!! I'm not in the financial mood to spend that at the moment.. There's a freeware version, but it is said not to work with the latest version of NGX. If anyone here use these products together, please let me know how to set it up in the easiest way. I've found a few tutorials like this one: https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?259000-Opencockpits-and-PMDG Which ALMOST takes me all the way, but there's always ONE link to a program I need to download which is dead, stopping me.. At the moment I have come as far as changing the SIOC.ini, that's about it. :( Any help here is greatly appreciated. Cheers, /Johan
  25. FSX-MS

    Forgive me, I'm a PRO ATC/ ATC noob First question: Is there a way to only receive SIDs as opposed to receiving heading vectors sometimes? Second question: When I DO receive vectors, do I just enter the heading they tell me to into the MCP until they tell me to continue on the path programmed in the FMC? On that note, how do I know when they want me to do that? And I'd select LNAV, correct? Third question: What does "continue as filed" mean? Is it the answer to the question above? Thanks a lot!!
