  1. I did the reinstall. Then the updates for the 737 model first. It loads fine fly's fine, as long as I don't touch the key board. If I hit any key it throws out the whole flight program. This has never happen before and I've had your software a long time. I've been tiring for the last week to work through this problem, no resolve.
  2. Hello, I have a problem with the PMDG 747-400 QOTS II since they released the update that includes the locked RAASPro for the airplane. Whenever the plane finishes the alignment process for the IRS the sim will crash ~30 secs later. When I disable the loading for the RAASPro.dll in dll.xml of the sim the problem disappears. I already talked to the PMDG support and they referred me to you for troubleshooting. Operating System: Win10 64bit SimVersion: P3D v4 with most recent update Plane: PMDG 747-400 QOTS II with most recent updates The location in the sim does not matter, it happens on any airport regardless if its stock or an addon airport. Addons running in the Sim: GSX, Active Sky, ChasePlane (tried deactivating all off them for testing, but none had any effect) I used the most recent makerwys.exe to create the date for the addon, but that didn't affect the behaviour. When the sim crashes the event in the eventviewer always points kernelbase.dll being the broken module.

  4. Attention PMDG 747 Drivers - Your Official PMDG Endorsed Flight Crew expansion for the 747 is available! We're pleased to announce that FS2Crew for the PMDG 747 QOTS II has been released and is ready for download! Click here to visit the product page! Like before, we're offering 5 Euros off to anyone who has ever owned a FS2Crew product before. Coupon Code is: 747 So what's it all about? Like with the other FS2Crew's, this product was designed in close consultation with a pilot who is current on type. In this case, he's 747-400 FO, and we think he knows his stuff We're not just making up procedures off the top of our heads; everything you see in the program is based off a real 747 pilot's experience. That said, our goal is to make your PMDG 747 experience more immersive and more realistic by allowing you to fly the 747-400 from the vantage point of the Captain and Pilot Flying using realistic airline procedures, callouts and checklists, and we think we've achieved that goal Indeed, the PMDG 747 is a great plane, but with FS2Crew for the PMDG 747, you're not flying your PMDG 747 like it's a little Cessna 152 -which would be realistic, or legal. You're flying it as part of a team, in a multi crew environment, the same way the real 747 is flown. In terms of expectations, the vast majority of you probably already own FS2Crew NGX Reboot. NGX Reboot was one of our most successful products ever! People loved it. It sold very well. If you liked NGX Reboot, then you'll love FS2Crew for the PMDG 747 QOTS II! Indeed, the learning curve for you will be low since you'll already be familiar with the interface system. In terms of SOP Sets, we're offering two this time. SOP Set 1 is based on Boeing SOPs. We found while researching the 747 that the majority of the world's airlines are going back to the stock Boeing SOPs - at least for their 747 fleets. However, we've included a large number of customization options so you custom configure the SOP to match your specific needs. SOP 2 is based on a British airline, who we can't name. It's different from the generic Boeing SOP, and it gives you a chance to try something different. Passenger and Freighter models are fully supported. Some of you noticed that we charged a bit more for the 747 than older versions of FS2Crew. This is because we're supporting FSX and P3D out of the box, including the 64 bit version of P3D. There's a new version of P3D every year, and we'll releasing free updates every year to match them well into the foreseeable future. We could easily be looking at 10 plus years of updates so long as Lockheed Martin keeps supporting P3D. The product also ships with two female pilots, one German, one American. And one male FO, who is British. A lot of you asked for female FOs, and we delivered! You now have some female companionship while you're over the ocean somewhere Enough talking from me! Go download the 747, spread the word that FS2Crew for the 747 has been released to all your friends and fellow simmers (we appreciate the support!), and fly safe! And thank you for supporting indie Flight Sim developers like FS2Crew! We couldn't ask for a more awesome user base!
  5. 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
  6. Hello guys, I guess this question has been asked many times before but I can't find it in the forums anymore. My question is whether there is an option to upgrade any PMDG product from FSX to P3D(v4) or is the only way to buy it full price? Thank you in advance :)
  7. FAQs and Quick Help: Question: I have FS2Crew NGX Reboot. What will the learning curve be like? Answer: Low. The Reboot NGX interface style was very popular and people found it easy to use, so we decided to keep the same user interface system. For the 747, you'll mainly need to learn the 747 flows. There are also some other differences described in the manual, such as how the FA can be contacted via the interphone. Question: In the 737, I heard a passenger boarding sound during preflight, but I can't in the 747. Answer: According to our real-world 747 pilot, in a 747 cockpit you can't hear any passengers. Remember: The 747 is not a 737. Question: I have P3D V4, and the FO is not moving any of the switches or pressing buttons. Answer: You need to have the latest P3D V4 version. To know what version of P3D V4 you have, right click on the Prepar3D.exe located in your main P3D folder. Look at the "details" section / tab. Look at the "file version". You need to have or later installed. More info here: Question: How do I turn on the night lighting for the FS2Crew panel? Answer: This is in the manual, but remember to move the outter knob shown here on the Captain's side to the full on position (two right clicks with your mouse). Question: The localizer and glideslope alive calls play at the wrong time. Answer: We can't, with total accuracy, read the position of the loc and glideslope needles the same way you can see them on the instrument panel with your own eyes. It should be accurate most of the time, but if you don't like them, you can always disable them via the Config Options if you don't like them. Question: I have general problems. Answer: Make sure your anti-v*rus program is excluding the FS/P3D folder. Some anti v*rus programs are aggressive and will quarantine critical files causing problems. For additional diagnostic help, Please run the "SYSTEM CHECK" located via the FS2Crew 747 Config Manager located on your desktop. Question: I'm using FSX. The PS button does not work. I click it but nothing happens. But it works fine in P3D. Answer: The PS button opens our new Panel Switcher panel that allows users to easily skip direct to different camera views around the cockpit. It's a very handy tool. It's like EZDOK in a way. The FSX Version of the PMDG 747 uses up all the available panel windows slots, so there's no room for the Panel Switcher. This problem is not an issue in P3D. The (optional) solution is this: 1. Open the "panel.cfg" file located here with NotePad (it's a good idea to make a backup first). SimObjects\Airplanes\PMDG 747-400\panel\ 2. Put forward slashes in front of these two lines: Change this: window11=Zoomed Right Inboard DU window12=Zoomed Right Outboard DU To this: //window11=Zoomed Right Inboard DU //window12=Zoomed Right Outboard DU 3. Finally, remove the two slashes from the Panel Switcher line. Change this: //window18=FS2Crew Panel Switcher To this: window18=FS2Crew Panel Switcher That's it! Your panel switcher will now load in FSX! Question: Radar Contact or other 3rd party addons are no longer working properly. Answer: Apply the same fixed used for the PS (Panel Switcher) button described above as the source of the problem is the same (panel window limit). Question: The 747 Config Manager will not load. Answer: 1. Delete and Reinstall the Riva Tuner Statistics Service. That worked for one user. Question: My panel FS2Crew Main Panel is black. Answer: This means the FS2Crew gauge did not load. 1. Re-install the PMDG 747 aircraft. Ensure it's the latest version. Manually delete any left over PMDG 747 folders in the SimObjects folder after the uninstall, then re-install. That will restore the 747's panel.cfg to its original, clean state. Then re-enable FS2Crew. This will ensure everything is in the right place. 2. Do not use Saved Situation files. If using FSX, default aircraft on the Free Flight screen should be the Trike. P3D: Default aircraft on load-up should not be the 747. 3. Run the "SYSTEM CHECK" in the Config Manager. 4. Try this solution as a last resort. This is a very rare situation, but it solved the problem for one user: Question: Where did the VOICE button go? Answer: To minimize screen real-estate, we moved it to the SECONDARY PANEL. When you first load the 747, FS2Crew is in BUTTON CONTROL mode by default. If you want to enable VOICE CONTROL, open the SECONDARY PANEL and go to the SETUP PAGE. We're using the same system found in NGX Reboot! Question: Where are the manuals? Answer: START - ALL PROGRAMS - FS2CREW2017 and also at: Question: I'm getting the SDK Error. Answer: Consult the MAIN OPS MANUAL Trouble Shooting sections. Odds are you're using Saved Situation files, and those are a no-no. The Trike should always be the default aircraft on the Free Flight screen in FSX. Also run the SYSTEM CHECK via the FS2Crew 747 Config Manager. Question: I get an error message when I try to enable FS2Crew in the 747 Configurator. Answer: You have a write permission problem. From another user: In the upper window of the "safety-tab" proprieties of the FSX folder I had to add (it wasn't in the previous menu) "everyone" than in the lower window I had to select the authorizations for "everyone" and I selected also "scrittura" enabled ("writing" enabled) and than Windows updated all the files of this folder with the new authorizations... Question: I get no headset audio, or I'm losing my audio. Answer: In Windows Sound options, uncheck the option that allows programs to take "exclusive" control of your audio device. Update your audio drivers. Open the Windows "Volume Mixer". Ensure the "Applications" slider is not muted. Question: How do I install the English - US language pack in Windows 10? I tried, but English - US is not visible in the 'Language' drop down menu. Answer: 1. Go to Settings > Time & language > Region & language. 2. Select Add a language. 3. Select the language you want to use from the list (ENGLISH) 4. Choose which region's version you want to use (ENGLISH - US) 5.Then you must click 'options' and then click 'download' under the 'speech' category. 6. Go to the speech recognition settings page in the Control panel. 7. English - US should now be visible in the Language drop down menu. 8. Don't forget to train your voice! Question: I'm running Windows 10. The system is not hearing my voice. Answer: Uninstall Asus Sonic Studio if you have it installed. That solved it for one user. Another user had an audio program called Nahimic running on his laptop. Exiting that software prior to loading FS solved the issue for him. If using a laptop, you may need to disable your built in mic on the laptop in order for your headset mic to be detected.
  8. Hi everyone! I go a problem of the liveries downloader of PMDG 737NGX. I was downloading a livery but the downloader had alredy "sending request" for about one hour and there is still no respond. Could someone please help me out here? Thanks. James·P·Liu
  9. Hi All, I have just been looking around on sites like Avsim and etc and notice there are repaints of the B747-8i Have I missed something as I didn't think the 8i had been released yet from PMDG. Maybe someone could enlighten me! When I purchased the 747 package from PMDG (online) am I correct in thinking the 8i will be available at no extra charge? Sorry if I'm sounding kinda dumb!
  10. Hi, as the title says, my screens go black from time to time. I might do a full flight without a single problem. But there are some flights in which right after takeoff, say 2 or 3 minutes after departure, PFD and ND go black, but I can still use the FMC. Thanks,
  11. 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
  12. Hi, I am trying to get my PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies running. I seem to be having trouble with the FMC, and have been following youtube tutorials to see what the problem is. I have noticed that my Nav Data: AIRAC-0802 (Active Feb14Mar12/08, and wonder if that might be a problem. Do I need to get an update for that? I did load an update from the website v1.2, but don't know if there is another update I need to do for the nav data? I am getting "not in database" error messages. Also, at one point when I got to the activate and then pushed "exec", and it took me back to activate instead of moving forward to the next step. Not sure enough to know how to proceed?? Any help would be apreciated. Thanks, Kent.
  13. 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. ??
  14. This being my first PMDG product purchase, I was excited and thrilled to finally buy a product from them I wanted. To my surprise, it did not fair favorably to other competitors products I already own and use. It may be standard fair, but I get the feeling like this plane is unfinished. There are things I’m finding that are missing or don’t work like most other AAA or even budget planes I own. Perhaps many of these things were done and designed on purpose, dunno, I welcome any feedback. Also perhaps many things are still being worked on and will be featured in future updates, dunno that either. Some of the below may have been mentioned elsewhere but here is my compiled list of issues or things so far I feel that are questionable for such an arguably heralded developer and pricey plane: C+D does not shut windows, turn off lights nor return some gauges. No 10 fuel tanks in transatlantic plane variant though aircraft.cfg has a 5512 gallon variant rem'ed out, hmmmm. Many tool tips seem missing or omitted. No nice Ref Info page or Checklist included in Kneeboard? Throttles won’t move with game controller buttons. Water injection lights never seem to come on? The lack of blower or cabin noises with various electricals powered up is accurate? Many standard keyboard shortcuts do not function; CtrShiftF1234 does not move the mixture levers, CtrlM does not move Batt Sw, ShiftE does not open main door, Shift and Ctrl and L for lights does not work. Must mouse click mixture control levers, keyboard does not work. Possible error: Starter engages even if the boost sw is not on? pg161 POH "...the boost switch must be depressed before the start switch will function." Even though all avionic devices are off, the ATC announcements come through? Some unexpected nice features: Remembers where you left all switches/levers after closing FSX. I'm no expert at all but most everything seems to be top notch in regards to sim study type accuracy. Questions for myself yet (feel free to contribute an answer if anyone is so inclined(thanks in advance)): Does it shoot flames out the exhaust/engines at any time? Does save/load function work well mid flight? What did the 2 buttons on the yoke do on the real plane? What does Aux Blower Sw do? What does Cooling Turbine Sw do? I don’t understand the helpfulness function or purpose of Cockpit Lighting area within the Ramp Manager panel?

  16. Hi all, FSUIPC5 isn't reading offsets (for annunciators) on my pmdg 737. Fsuipc is able to read offsets from the standard list such as generic parking brake. I've enabled the data broadcast in the pmdg config file. Any ideas? p.s. I understand that there has been some similar topics made like this in the past, but from what I've seen none of them have a final outcome.
  17. I thought such a topic would come handy. To kick start it, I would like to ask if someone's kind enough and make a West Atlantic (cargo variant) repaint on the DC-6 please? In reality, West Atlantic did never operate the type (Air Atlantique did). West Atlantic is basically a holding company for Atlantic Airlines (they "inherited" Air Atlantique) and West Air Sweden. West Atlantic operate a fleet consisting of BAE ATPs (would love to see a study level BAE ATP in P3D), 737s, 767s and CRJs. I think the West Atlantic livery (both the grey and the white one) looks great and would make for an excellent dress for the DC-6 especially in a nice, weathered condition.
  18. Sorry about posting lots of topic at once, but I finally just bought simulator and this product and there's info that can't be found yet by searching. By searching some forums, I could gather a little info about realism settings and there's a recommended setting in the introductory manual. But the option "Enable gyro drift" is somewhat unclear and the manual also doesn't say about it. I know about basic theory about it and this product is also affected by this(it looks like to me). But I'm not sure about whether I check this option. There are some mentions in web but they are all different opinions.
  19. Hello, I own the Prepar3D version V3 and V4. Is it possible to operate the products of the Pmdg 737/777 simultaneously in both versions V3 and V4? Best regards Hans -Jürgen Lampe
  20. Working on customizing texture, are these tips(?, in red circle) supposed to be metallic with alpha channel or just white texture and it's glitch?
  21. Following shutdown procedures, APU finished start up and shown it is ready on STAT/ELEC MFD. After that, when I shut down both engine, Light goes crazy for a few moment and F/O computer(FMC, displays) restarts, just like start up procedures. Why? P.S Speaking of light, when I turn off APU, all lights turns on, maximum bright, and some of them can't be turned off. My system is P3D v4 and active sky for p3dv4 + vpilot. Latest updates including this product.
  22. My system's configurations are: PMDG 777 P3Dv4(1.10.8414, Newest) + Active Sky for P3Dv4(Newest) + P3Dv4 Professional Plus( / Client: Like I mentioned in the title, the weather radar reacts too slow! Is there any option to handle this or idea? Is it due to my low frame rates(20~50 frame)?
  23. There is small white box on upper left corner of the screen. It's 2D window that cannot be removed(if removed, re-spawn instantly). Does this exist from the beginning of time, which just I didn't noticed? By the way, this is P3D v4, not FSX.
