    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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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

    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
  7. Hi all! Flew this a few months ago. It was my longest flight so far. Enjoy! Here is the full photo set. UAE226 as a PMDG B77W parked at gate in KSFO Yes, I know SFO usually uses the 01's for departures.. too bad.

  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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!!

    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
  12. 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.
  13. I am asking this question here due to the fact that I have too many variables to put it any of the specific forums. Recently I purchased the 777 from PMDG and the supporting voice control from FS2crew. Around the same time I added ASN to my FSX experience. The issue I am having is that upon touchdown at my destination airport (PHNL primarily due to the low strain on my CPU) once the nose wheel touches down I start hearing an audible "bing" from my computer. As I taxi in it eventually causes my session of FSX to crash. I have tried changing the settings to stop this, initially believing it was ASN downloading on landing but have not isolated it. I am wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue? With the numerous addons and the updates and patches I have no idea where to start. Any help would be appreciated.

    PMDG 777 Uninstall problems

    Hi ! At First i would thank PMDG for their wonderful "Triple seven" i am a newbie at this forum, so i beg your parden. i was looking for a trouble shooting topic for he 777, but i was not able to find anything(maybe i am still to newbie)But anyway, recently reinstalled FSX from my C: drive to my D: drive. I then tried to reinstall PMDG from my computer. There started my problems. i couldn´t uninstalll it. i could´t remove it either remove it, or do anything. People will now believe that I have done illegal things, but i have bought it from PMDG. so i need some help here. Thanks Vegard
  16. 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
  17. Hi Bryan, just a few things for 1.2 - if possible please: 1. You kindly granted my request for the various voice control measures for "DISPLAY CHKL" etc. Can you also create a "DISPLAY CLEAR" - that way we can have the FO clear the display completely. 2. Can we have the FO update the Altimeter scale on the ground at the gate (with engines running) - nb: I usually fly the 777 with default PMDG engines running at gate at start up. 3. Can you allow the Departure Brief (voice control) to be initiated with engines on at the gate prior to Before Taxi / Flaps Call? (Currently, as I understand it, you can only do so with engines OFF and FO will acknowledge your commands/voice prompt) Much appreciated.
  18. 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, 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?

  19. 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!
  20. 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

    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)

    A few issues Bryan

    Hi Bryan, just to advise that I've been experiencing a few issues with the new program - some of which have been noted/reported here by other users (to which you will be resolving in V1.1), and a few others that at this point seem isolated to me. I'll just raise the isolated ones here. I have tested these several times over with the same conclusion. (I do not use the FO's FMC/CDU at all - it is powered up and ready for use) 1. Arriving at gate the L2 Door is opened automatically by FS2Crew well before the Jetway arrives. (I have these options ON in the cfg panel incl GPU and AIR CON) 2. BRIEF Panel: after setting up landing variables - commencing the Approach brief via button (despite the fact that I am using Voice Control for the vast majority of the flight end to end) - once the brief is complete and the PM commences his DESCENT FLOW - the DISP CTRL on the right FMC is switched from OFF to ON and the EICAS displays the appropriate message in yellow. I then have to manually go into the right FMC and take it back to the MENU and engage DISP CTRL back to OFF. As a side note, I wanted to ask you whether the PM during checklist invocations is supposed to read them out line by line? (nb: I'm electing to use ECL in the cfg). eg: Landing Checklist 1. Speedbrake - Armed 2. Flaps - 30 3. Gear - Down 4. Checklist Complete Or, does he just confirm that the "Checklist is Complete" as all lines have a green tick? UAC is disabled, and ADMIN rights are established for all software on my rig. Not using any saved situations etc. If there are any other details required, just let me know. Much appreciated.

  25. 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!
