    PMDG 777 LNAV ACCURACY

    Hello everyone! I have not found any similar threads to this, so I am starting a new one right here. It seems like that the PMDG 777 is not 100% accurate when flying in LNAV mode. I know that there are inaccuracies sometimes, but when I am flying in the real Boeing 777 Cockpit the airplane keeps 0.0 NM even when performing an 80 degree turn in China. Also, having talked to numerous 777 pilots, they are all telling me that the aircraft hardly ever gets "off track" more than 0.1 NM L/R. However, in the PMDG I usually get about 0.1 NM to even 0.7 NM L/R on sharp turns. (like overshooting). Wind data is inserted and all weights in the PERF page are all correctly inserted. Am I the only one experiencing this problem? Thanks in advance!

    PMDG 777 constantly losing fuel

    Hey guys! I've been having a very annoying issue with my PMDG 777 lately. On all my last 5 long haul flights, I am experiencing a constant and slow reduction of my fuel remaining at my destination. I am planning all my flights with real time weather in PFPX and activesky. By comparing the estimated wind forecast in the OFP and the actual wind in the sim, I can tell that they match very closely. I already read this: and changed the battery of my motherboard. - doesn't help. I have around 2000 hours in the sim with the PMDG 777 and never had this issue before. Does anybody have an idea about what's going on? Please help me I don't how to continue.

    RAAS in PMDG777 not working

    Hi, trying to understand why RAAS in PMDG777 not working. I only have the RAAS that came with PMDG777. there is a RAASPro folder in my FSX program folder that presumably was installed with the PMDG777 and inside these folders is a dll.xml file which seems to contain code to load a RAAS module. My fsx.cfg file contains no reference to RAAS - only to the 777 as follows: " F:\fsx\GAUGES\PMDG_777X.DLL.clkoanwecheuccchbtaankcweoczielozorzqoot=2 F:\fsx\GAUGES\PMDG_777X_3.DLL.lbniobqietubhczkqioocklquolkanbbblruqeqr=2 " some ideas: 1). is it necessary to run the makerunways utility after installing PMDG777 ? 2). I don't have a dll.xml file in my FSX user folder - do i need this ? everything else in PMDG777 works just fine!
  6. Hello guys: I was wondering how to set sq to C mode on IVAP using the aircraft TCAS (without touching IVAP) is that possible? I tried to switch the aircraft TCAS to TA/RA but IVAPs sq still on STBY, any ideas? thanks.
  7. Name: 777 Crosswinds KIAD (FSX) Category: MS FSX Videos Date Added: 29 November 2013 - 05:54 PM Submitter: doog79 Short Description: A little crosswind practice at KIAD in the PMDG 777. Winds 18kts gusting 22 Just a little video of me getting some crosswind practice in the PMDG 777-200LR. No fancy editing this time. Winds were 18kts gusting 22kts. Autopilot off at 1600ft. This is the last video from my failing GTX580. EVGA 770 on the way and a lot more videos in the future. Addons Flightbeam KIAD picked up in the black Friday sale, PMDG 777, REX Essentials OD Thanks for watching Doogie View Video
  8. I want to know if my mailbox stolen by hackers leaked my PMDG777 KEY then he can activate to use it?
  9. One first try in uploading screenshots here. A shot captured while on final into CYVR at night. Please enjoy! Cheers, Christoph

    Just a question?

    Hello i have been looking around on the pics and vids that are available to us to see if PMDG have modelled the nose from the VC. Not very important as the aircraft is beautiful but could someone shed some light on this for me please. Basically sometimes personally i like to sit on the dash and just pear over the nose, nice angel and i wondered if this has been done like on the NGX. ? Thanks Stevo

    Future of PMDG 777

    Hi guys I am new here, but is there a possibility that different engined variants like the older GE90 - 74B or the PWs, Rolls Royce Trent 800s being developed for the PMDG 777? Is there also a possibility where older variants like the 300, 200 and the 200ER (I know the 300ER is WIP) would be developed? Yours sincerely Qian Zhe
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. Some shots taken with PMDG's great 777 at a flight from Aerosoft's PANC to FSDT's CVYR. All above ORBX’s Southern Alaska and Pacific Northwest Sceneries and some REX textures combined with the latest version of OPUS running in the background (i switch occasionally between ASN and OPUS currently, as i enjoy both engines very much). Furthermore in use: DX10 as provided by Steve's great DX10 fixer, FSDT’s GSX and SweetFX. Everyone, please enjoy! Cheers, Christoph Checking winds and weather and crosschecking the data with the numbers from the OFP as calculated by PFPX in advance prior to the flight. Looking quite okay so far i think. Some view from the outside now again. And into the approach. I must not forget to set the Seat Belts properly next time! :lol: No kidding: There was some rain, but… it stopped just a few seconds before i took this shot. Sorry for the wiper here now, but i was not able to turn it off quickly enough and after i did so, i focused on the final stages of landing rather than taking screenshots. Welcome to CYVR!

    Whist at the gate I press control J to have a gate come to the PMDG 777 however the gate only comes a few meters from the entry 2 door, it comes nowhere near the door. Is there a fix for this? Thanks, Arun

  21. Hi, I have recently purchased Active Sky Next and PMDG777. I have never be able to get the weather radar working, so thought I would see if my Simconnect is working ok..eg, does it connect between ASN and FSX and the PMDG 777 radar. Is there a way to see if this is working ok? what tell's me, "yep, it works ok"? I do know that the weather reports are downloaded to the FSX FMC ok from ASN. I have FSX. No network(one machine) I use win 7 64 bit With the latest registered version of FSUIPC, it fires up when FSX starts, it's log mentions SimConnect_Open succeeded:waiting to check version okay Trying to use SimConnect Acc/SP2 oct07 Running in Mic..Fl..Sim.. X version 10.0.61472.0 Initialising SimConnect data requests now So, this seems to say SimConnect is working as far as FSUIPC is concerned. I have reinstalled the FSX SDK. I have copies of two logs from.USERS,NAME,APPDATA,ROAMING,HIFI,ASN,FSX............ I have no idea what they mean?

  22. Hi guys: I don't know if its me or probably more people are experiencing problems with their PMDG 777, as it loads to FSX Steam, all the electrics are off and unable to use them, because the buttons are unusable. Im also unable to even use the throttle, or anything on the aircraft. Has anyone come with a solution, as why the software is behaving like that?? Irving Vargas Mendoza

    PMDG 777 latest update

    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)

    I have done this hoping that most people will thank PMDG for the 777 , like most of us it appears to be all over the place at the moment Can we all make it in one place so they can just read down the list and see how greatfull we are. I'll start. - PMDG wow ! Thank you so much for all your effort and time in this project. You have set the bar yet again ! CONGRATS ! I'm a very happy customer and $89.99 is worth it infact i would have paid double knowing what i know now .. Stevo
  25. So over the last weekend I finally decided to go for a long-haul flight on VATSIM with 777. I had an amazing ATC coverage throughout the flight from Gatwick (UK2000) and Dubai (FlyTampa). The same day I also upgraded to Active Sky Next with phenomenal results.. seriously.. what a great weather injector! 7-hour flight went really well.. everything running silky smooth, fun Saturday VATSIM trafic all around Europe.. umm, until I hit the STAR into Dubai. Yep. OOM. Never have I ever seen an OOM before. Well the first time always kinda sucks. I did not check the memory consumption during the flight as I did a EGKK - OMDB flight few days before without a problem but with time acceleration and without VATSIM traffic. I don't really have a hight-end super-machine but I'm fine now with frame-rates and tweaked CFG.. My ultimate goal for long haul flights is to run two add-on airports (EGKK and OMDB), UTX, GEX in Europe, Active Sky's 1024px textures, dense autogen, high mesh resolution and PMDG 777. Not a impossible thing to do I think. People fly these routes with add-on airports daily and without problems. DirectX 10 time! Holidays are almost here.. that means some free time to play around and experiment. I will finally start working on the DX9 -> DX10 switch. I believe due to better memory management in DX10 I might be actually getting somewhere.. most of the DX10 texture issues (airports/planes) are worked out and the development and support in this regard is still going strong. There is even a chance for slightly better frame-rates and I guess a little visual overhaul .. well that might be a little bonus. I really want to follow up you guys with the development of my own switch to DX10. Maybe more people will soon give DX10 within FSX a shot. I'm planning to benchmark the process on my not-really-new PC if I can get some great results to share with you guys. I will be really focusing on the PMDG 777 only as this is a 777 sub-forum and I really want to get this awesome plane running at its best. And I heard lot of great things about the (limited) DX10 preview in the last weeks.. I'm doing lot of FSX's DX10 research myself but if we do have a people here that fly the triple 7 and successfully switched to DX10, maybe you can share some KEY pieces of information that I might miss while switching.. Can't wait to follow up. I hope this ends well - with happy, great looking long haul flying on VATSIM without OOMs!
