  1. Hi,I am about to give up.. Or maybe I should just be patient and wait for a service pack to be released..First let me say that even though I'm not a real life pilot, I not a total rookie in simming either. Among others, I have been flying the PDMG 737 for FS9 for years and have always enjoyed it and have never had these kind of problems with the FS9 version.. I bought this bird 2 days ago and had been looking forward to enjoy it this weekend. Thought I'd start off gentle by following the Tutorial 1. Unfortunately- I'm still stuck on the runway at Gatwick.. :-( First I had the problem with the engines not running when loading the aircraft. Spend some hours trying to find out why. Eventually I gave up and thought I'd just start up from Cold and Dark. Found a checklist just to make sure I did everything correct. Now I have both engines up and running, everything set for TO and then it turns out that the throttle doesn't respond.. The levers are moving but nothing else happens.. And yes - there are a lot of advises in the posts here suggesting different actions. Thank you for that! And I have spend hours trying different things. I might even eventually get this problem solved, but what will then be my next problem? Thrust climb issues? Or AP issues? (Or maybe none..)My point is, I don't want to spend my time solving problems/bugs - I just want to enjoy the piece of software that I have spend quite an amount of money on...And looking at the amount of tickets and posts from frustrated custumers, I would say that it seems that PMDG (with all respect), should have done some more testing before the release..One can only hope that they will respond to all these problems and come up with patches/solutions/service packs quickly.. BR from an - at this point - not so happy customer../Miks
  2. At slower speeds, say 250k or below, autopilot performs as expected. At higher cruise speeds, say 300k and above the throttles are constantlly moving up and down, the yoke back and forward and the plane is in a perpetual bobbing up and down motion If I disconnect the auto-throttle and set the throttles manually everything smooths out. a) So what am I doing wrong b) once I descend to a speed where the auto-throttle will work - how do I re-engage as part of the autopilot mode - simply flipping the auto-throttle to the on position does nothing.
  3. Hi All. Still having issues with the throttles on my "Thrustmaster T-Flight stick X" joystick. When you advance the thottles on the PMDG 737-800NGX they will only go back to about 40% thrust and not to zero thrust. Have installed FSUIPC4 from Peter Dowsons website and also downloaded Simconnect directly from Lockheed Martin. ... I have allso recalibrated Joystick and downloaed the latest driver directly from Thrustmaster website. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the stick and tried to update the driver but for some reason it will not update. Also moved the sliders in P3D settings for the Joystick to min and max but the problem still exists. Any help or advice would be most welcome.
