  1. Good day, I recently began having issues with both the 737 and 777 completely locking up in P3D V4 whenever I would adjust the arrival section in the FMC before TOD. Normally when I input the navigational information for the flight into the FMC prior to pushback, I don't select the landing runway in the FMC until I am within 250nm of the arrival airport in case the winds have changed more than 90 degrees from when I takeoff. I tried 2 different flights with each aircraft to ensure that it wasn't a scenery, weather or terrain anomaly causing this lock up. All 4 times it locked up just after I had input the STAR and landing runway, within 5 minutes (sometimes 30 seconds, other times 2 minutes) the game would freeze with no other input or control presses. The sound of the engines would go in a very short loop leaving it sounding like someone was hitting the drums at 10 beats per second. The computer completely locks up, can't alt + tab or ctrl alt delete out of it, leaving the only option as a hard reset. I tried the same flight's with the DC6, no issue what so ever. Has anyone else ran into this? I did read a thread about double clicking the 2d FMC window but on the final 2 tests I did not open the 2d FMC in case this was the issue but the freeze still occurred. Wanted some opinions before I submit a ticket with PMDG My specs and addons are as followes 6700K with stable OC of 4.5ghz. 16GB 3000mhz Evga 1070 FTW Samsung 960 EVO OS + P3D (installed in C driver directly, no subfolders) Win 7 SP1 P3D V4 AS16 ORBX Global, Vector, HD trees, OpenLC NA, PNW, PFJ, SAK, NRM Rex Texture Direct + Soft Clouds for V4 UT Live Beta ( Same flights with no issues with DC6 should cancel out any issue with it being UTlive) Thank you,
  2. Hi i dont have a lot of time to do long haul flights i was using the auto time compression for long hauls floght but since i upgraded from p3dv3 to p3dv4 i cant go up to 16x auto compresiion with my pmdg products (i did all my updates as said) is it just me or is it a known issue thank you for your helps!
  3. Hello everyone: I'm glad to figure out the solution with everyone. Recnetly I met this problem and have a little bit anxious to solve, because I'm a video maker in a China's online video site (just like YouTube), I do not want to drag too long time to next 777 video. Maybe my English is not good so please forgive my grammar... First here's something I want to declare: 1. My PMDG777 isn't a pirate copy, if PMDG's stuff want my order number I can give that use PM or ticket; 2. This problem didn't happened in P3Dv3, even FSX long time ago... Just in P3Dv4. Okay, now please let me tell this about it: I'm using ILS27 circle-to-land RWY24 at EHAM, and everything goes fine before touch-down, my AUTOBRAKE set to 1, of couse no PARKING BRAKE. At the moment touched down, PARKING BRAKE ON red box showed at the lower left corner of the screen, flashing. EICAS showed warning TIRE PRESS (abnormal) and BRAKE TEMP (too high). MFD's GEAR page now showed my brake's temperature is too high and main landing gear‘s tire press is ZERO! I'm sure there is no heavy landing, it was a very smooth landing. TAT is 21C and RWY surface's temp is pretty normal, can NOT be puncture. Then I checked my Parking Brake is released, because no tire pressure plane can't be moving. I also checked chorks is removed. Addtional, FMC's FAILURE page showed I have a lot wheel's failures. BUT when I clear all the failures, it's NOT WORK at all! Pressure goes down soonly. Luckily, When I reset brakes and tires in FMC's GROUND MAINTANCE page, everything goes normal. I’m wordering if it was an incident, BUT then I did a traffic partten at EHAM using ILS18C (I EVEN RESTART MY PC) , same BUG occured! When this BUG occured, although parking brake is released, plane can't move, P3D tells my parking brake still on... In my opinion it was totally a BUG and this makes normal landing impossible (OMG Parking Brake apply and can't release). So anyone knows how to solve this problem? It's better that PMDG's stuff give out a solution~ I'm pretty appreciate if there's somebody help me. Let me express my thanks first! :) Eric
  4. Here you can download the LINDA aircraft module for the PMDG 777 (module version 1.3a). Version 1.3a adds missing VRi Combo MPC .default files. It is only applies to VRInsight MCP panel users. Installation notes: Download and unzip it and place the two folders into: */Microsoft Games/Microsoft Flight Simulator X/Modules Say "yes" if he'd like to overwrite anything Your current Combo settings wouldn't be overwritten, but you find in Modules/linda-cfg/aircrafts/PMDG 777 files named *.default. name them to *.lua to use them. Download PMDG 777 Module 1.3a 1.0 --> 1.1 ADIRU fix Display sync fix 1.1 to 1.2 Doors added Ground connections improved Added GSX Refueling Feature: calling the GSX Fuel Truck will pop-up FOs CDU with FUEL page opened. 1.2 to 1.3 added Anti Ice Added GSX functions like closing doors preventing some LUA crashes changed EXT PWR logic/added on/off 1.3a Fixes missing VRi MCP .default files. Have a look here for the new GSX Door Service
  5. Hi my friends at PMDG. Last night the 777 for p3d v4 showed up in the operations center, but I couldn't figure out how to install it. I tried using the same procedure in the 747 instructions, but it looks like the 777 installer I downloaded from my order history is the same one I bought for v3, and it only gives me the option to install in v3. Was this an accidental, premature addition last night? If so, maybe you want to pull it from the op center before the forums start to go bonkers later. Happy converting, John
  6. Hello guys, i would like to request a Libyan repaint for the PMDG 777-300ER and its fictional because, Libyan airlines they don`t have such an aircraft into there fleet! and to give you an idea about the logo and how it looks you will find 2 pictures attachment down below for Airbus A330. I Couldn't see it in the real life but, hopefully i would be able to see it virtually at least. I`m using FSX. Thanks and best wishes to you guys. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3AoundzwMxAWmM2OF9BcHpCT3c https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3AoundzwMxAUnlGT2ZhdUdmb28
  7. Does ChasePlane fix the longstanding FSX VC camera bug? I mean the bug which causes the VC camera in large aircraft (777/747 etc) to move considerably based on heading, altitude, and latitude. I don't have ChasePlane yet, and I've been unable to find such a fix listed on the feature list. But it seems to me that, given the complete control it has over the camera, it ought to be possible to build eye-point compensation for this very annoying bug into ChasePlane? Has this been done, or are you contemplating doing this in a future version? Thanks, Farley
  8. Hi guys quite a few shots of UAE 971 from Dubai to Tehran. Misty in Dubai and thunder,rain and snow on approach to Tehran....everything but the kitchen sink...Anyway Enoy.

  10. Hi guys! Question, if i use my PMDG777 freighter, what should be my type code? also, whats the type code for the 777-300er? Thanks, Francis
  11. The reason I ask this question is I believe i heard an free update was available to existing customers of pmdg products.
  12. Hello Bryan, don't know if you remember or not but I had a problem with RAAS crashing FSX on start up with the Aerosoft Bus. I fixed that by installing your stand alone locked version for the bus from your product page. This worked for a few weeks then happened again. I gave up trying to fix it. I bought and installed the PMDG777 last night. Had two successful flights in the 777 with RAAS locked version working great. Third flight and boom FSX has stopped working and needs to close, this happens at startup. I restarted FSX and am given an option to run the RAASpro module again but the only way I can get FSX to open is by not loading the module or FSX doesn't boot. All audio drivers are up to date which was a suggestion when it happened with the bus. FSX is on a separate drive outside program files, user account control is off and all installers and stuff run as admin. I have Microsoft Security Essentials but FSX foder is excluded from scanning and real time protection. This issue has annoyed me for months with the bus and now its hitting the 777 I really want to get to the bottom of it. I`m wondering if RAAS runs as a process is MSE is shutting it down? There is nothing quarantined or in the detected items. Yours faithfully Douglas Reid (Doogie)
  13. Hello, i have a very short question: Why are the PMDG 737ngx and 777 for P3d a lot more expensive than for the FSX? It´s no criticism but I wonder about it very... Thanks and have a good flight!
  14. to undock the complete overhead on my PMDG 777 and move it as one unit to another screen

  17. Hi, i just baught the PMDG 777 for P3D, and the problem is whenever I try to change a frequency with a .22 in it, there is no way to get to the .22. Example on Gatwick, APPR is 125.22, but the 777 frequency jump from .20, to .25. Any tips? Dillon Lifrieri
  18. Hi guys, I am trying to adjust the pax nbrs/figures for the 777-200. I want to cram 308 pax into the 200, but there are only 234 in the aircraft! I think I just need to adapt the weight for the classes, right? But if I make the math I am getting 134lbs per pax in the Eco and that's not right. When I adapt the weight, for example no first class, does it show in FMC also 0 for first class? How can I adapt those figures for C48 Y260?? Thanks for any tips Greetings
  19. Hi, Another airline flight from me, but probably my last one for a while. I'm in the middle of moving so I won't have access to a flight sim computer for at least a week. Here are the shots! I do not have any scenery for LFPG, and I was parked at a gate too small for my aircraft... I know. I used to never use time acceleration, and only leave the computer alone in real time, overnight. I have been using acceleration a bit more these days, and there is at least one clear advantage; I get to see the sun rise (or set) during the cruise! I don't only have dark departure shots and/or dark arrivals shots. Pretty cool. Here is the full set. Warning: I really abused screenshots in this one. 113 shots for one flight... I think I've never taken that much before. Enjoy!! No video for this flight. The 300ER at pushing back in LFPG Pretty neat feature, even though it shaves off half of my framerate Take-off from 26R in Paris, with low visibility Climbout, with a couple of shots of the sun rising I only have 2 sceneries installed: KSFOHD and UK2000 EGLL. I decided to add the FAF for 27L in EGLL to my flight plan, to get a couple of shots above the airport... completely pointless, but why not! Sun rising still, in the cruise Pretty sure "FreeMeshX" is adding a lot of details to the mountains below. I like it One of my favourite shots of the PMDG777 so far: Descent, at last It seems I am unable to fly an aircraft into San Francisco without taking a picture of it with the Golden Gate. No idea why. Here it is, as usual (default P3D model) Over KSFO, just before entering downwind Turning to final Final for 28R inKSFO! Parked at gate. I don't know why I enjoy simming so much, but I always feel kind of proud when I see this kind of shot at the end of a long flight... Here we go: Hope you enjoyed, see you in a few weeks!!

  20. Hello guys, I was told that there is a new update for the 777, this will be my first update since I got this product only a few months ago, now I did the new installation and I'm should be good to go, my question is; what's the changes on the new update, the same person told me that the Virtual memory is less now but I didn't understand that, can anyone please explain maybe in general how this help and also other change on this update please? Im asking since my PC runs this product decent but in some occasions the frames go down, the NGX and the other PMDG products run much better, thanks for any help. Efrain Rodriguez FLORIDA (KMCO)

  22. Hello! I could find several guides on how to share a PMDG 737 NGX cockpit on vatsim, though I found none for the PMDG 777. So my questions are; How can I share a PMDG 777 cockpit on vatsim? Can we both use vPilot, or do we need another client? Can we both use ATC services? Thanks for answers! :-)
  23. Hello Guys. this is my First posting on Avsim cause my English is not he best. Hope you Understand me and can maby help ! Situation: I Fly the PMDG 777-200LR and use ActiveSykyNext. Alson i use the Wind Uplink Function. I Want to make Long Turns from Europe to the USA for example EDDM Munich - KJFK Kennedy. But i need to skip a liitle bit time with the Time Compression cause my reallife is bussy and i cant seat 10 Houres on my Computer.... Also i need some Information how ASN Wind data in the FMC from PMDG 777 works when i do Time Compression 4x . 1.) I Read that ASN gives Wind data for Far away Waypoints NOT in form of the actual wind at the moment of making the Flightplan. ASN makes a kind of Forecast with help of the loadet Flightplan in ANS and my proxied Cruisespeed and calculate when i´m ETA on the Woyypoint. IS THAT CORRECT ??? 2.) When I use Time Compression its maby not important if the Winds are forcasted or live. I will reach the Waypoint not at the correct Realtime. Also the Wind-data is in both ways not corect. I decidet to fix that Problem and looking forward to make a "Reqest wind Data" from time to time. (Maby every 30 Minutes Realtime or 2 Houre of Sim-Time with 4x Timecompression) Ah that point my second Question: Does ASN know where i´m located at the moment of a new Data Reques?? Or does ASN just calculate the time since my last request and think i´m on the Position who i where without time Compression. 3) At last. What do you guys think is the best way to use the Wind forecast Uplink from ASN/PMDG with working with time Compression while long journeys. Is my opinion with a update by the mfc avery 30 Minutes a good idea or ist it not possible to make flights with time Compression. Thank You !
  24. Hi Guys just a few shots of the short trip from Islamabad to Karachi. Nice eventful weather on takeoff and climb, even into cruise, but smooth sailing on the way down. Enjoy.
  25. Hi, I've searched the world wide web on how to plan a polar air route on professional flight planner x but to no avail!! Any kind person out there who could give me step by step instructions on how to do it on PFPX and then fly it on PMDG777, and any quirks I should look out for? Thanks!!
