    PMDG 737 VC Rear Panels Transparent

    Any idea's for this problem? I have tried reinstalling the PMDG 737 but the problem still occurs. I have the following add-ons installed: ORBX Global ENG Series REX2 (Real World Weather in use) UK2000 Scenery (+ Aerosoft scenery, fsdreamteam etc.) PMDG 737 NGX (of course + Quality Wings 757, Carenado C172/152)
  2. Hi Dear I'm working on setting a dual vue. After being sure that everything is ok with my computer I opened Wideview setting panel and input all the vue angles number in both the primary and secondary. Sorry, I forgot to mention that it's about FS9 win7 64bits and Nvidia 780GTX After that I check on the "disable virtual cockpit 3D" view on both primary and secondary and also the "raise primary view"... When FS9 fire up, it looks good except for the secondary vue which shows a small ghost inside vue of the cockpit. My question is, did I miss something? Years ago I've heard about a "dumb aircraft" who could be useful to solve some problems related to avsim or any network flight community. How do I download it if possible? All the best Thanks

    Hello, I have been experiencing weird crashes since a few days ago. Every time I press the space bar to pan the view around the VC, FSX crashes and sends me back to desktop, with the typical message saying that FSX has crashed and must close. I have already tried reinstalling the NGX several times but without any luck so far. I'm only using FSX Steam edition on Windows 10. Is there a fix to this problem? Thanks.

    How do PMDG make airplanes

    Hello, can anybody tell how PMDG make that detail cockpit? I wanna make a A350-800-900-900R-1000-F Versions This is what i wanna know: What kind of software they use (example: FS Design Studio 3.5) how they create the model (.MDL Files) how they make a virtual cockpit that fully works If the software is secret (or other) please tell then the best alternitive. Thanks Hugo
  5. Hi guys I have a strange problem with 757-200 base package and VC. 1) If I normally load up the aircraft choosing my airport etc etc, when loaded PFD and ND are not correctly initialized, so I look on overhead to align IRS but all overhead knob are unclickable, in the same way all other knob are unusable, works only FMC, thrust and flap levers. 2) If I load up the default saved flight 757-200 Cleared for takeoff (KSEA) all VC aircraft is correctly initialized and knobs are clickable other then IAS/MACH knob, or better you can rotate it but the value remain fixed on 200. Any one has any idea to solve the matter? 757-200 base packake is the 4.6 Thanks in advance for nay help
  6. Hi guys Has anyone ever found a way to disable the VC in the Lotus Sim L39 Albatross? I'm wanting to use it as a base for an L39 sim but for the visuals to be best. Thanks,
  7. I need some advice I have a several good monitors on my system and a 980ti card fsx -se. My biggest issue is that in the vc when i move the image of the cockpit out a bit .(.ie move back or zoom out) so i can see more of the cockpit the gauges start to get fuzzy. I really need them to be sharp and clear .... When i bring everything close I can generally read them but then i really cant see the balance of the controls. BTW some aircraft are better then others. Im running very high settings in the vc, and have tired everything . I tried this with a 4k monitor and it did not help . it must have to do with the textures that were built for a particular zoom ( no zoom/moved further away( would that be unzoom??)) Anyway i need some help with this as these old eyes are suffering and its hard to read the gauges in this situation. Is there any setting, hardware or .cfg fix i can apply to assist. Peter K .
  8. Hi, I have a new good computer, 3 monitors, and have been having a good experience so far but wanted to let others know of a very good improvement I found, which actually may be outdated or well known, idk, because I'm kind of new to flight sim. I changed my config setting from "WideViewAspect=False" to "WideViewAspect=True". Objects that I couldn't see before appeared, the resolution increased significantly, and the field of view ability increased a lot also. I'm very happy with the change, its a whole new experience. Of course I don't know if this is because I'm running 3 monitor's or not, but I wanted to share this info regardless.
  9. Hi all, I purchased the 737NGX add-on aircraft after seeing some great youtube clips of it. The virtual cockpit looked so realistic to me, I had to do a double-take. I have invested in a top of the line setup to run my FSX, this plane, and some other add-ons for scenery, etc. I am finding that my virtual cockpit in FSX doesn't look as realistic as those on youtube! Theirs are a little darker, have this intense realism to it, that I can't explain, in the way the panels and gauges look. Mine still looks like a game. I have all the settings cranked in FSX for aircraft. Is there some specific place I should be looking as well? I was cranking up the aliasing options on my Nvidia GTX780 control panel, thinking this would help. Still more tweaking to do. Hope someone can help point me in the right direction. i certainly have the rig to do any processing to make this product look as real and smooth as it can. thanks, SF
  10. I got a problem that plague many others as I see in the net. Is there an "official solution"? After a while the mouse clicks, switches and rotary knobs stop working in the PMDG 737 800 virtual cockpit. Sometimes some clicks still work, but most don't. It happens a varying time from 1 to 10 minutes after the start of the simulation. It does not happen in every flight. I have no details yet on what causes the issue. The PDMG is the only plane with that problem. I tried readjusting the seat to the front, going full screen and back, switching views, but nothing works. Reloading the PMDG does not help too. Restarting the FSX helps, but the problem may strike again. The system is Windows 10 (but I had the same problem in Windows 8 before) and it is FSX Steam Edition. The PMDG is the most recent (the configurator says so). The livery is Air Berlin, but it happens in other liveries too. Addons are only sceneries and ASN. I am not running any view system when it happens. Thanks for help, Paul
  11. Hi all, I've known about this for a while and kind of put these aircraft at the back of the hanger until I was ready to tackle it, and now I am. Basically, it's exactly the same issue as this guys': I have the CLS 767 and POSKY 777 and I use DX10 mode in FSX-SE with Steve's DX10 Fixer which otherwise works brilliantly; I can't be sure it's an issue with DX10 but I imagine it might be since I've found next to nothing about it and these aircraft aren't recommended on DX10 anyway... but I don't want to let that stop me! B) As Kris says, everything is set up as per the guides and this only seems to occur in full screen mode (but not necessarily) and only when the cursor is visible and not over a menu or the tool bar. It goes on like this for a few seconds until the cursor disappears, but the polygons change and flicker at a rate of about 10 times a second, and outside the sky can appear black when it should be blue and the VC seems to disappear altogether (whilst the polygons continue to manifest) now and again for a brief moment. I have an i7 4790k at 4.0ghz and a GTX970, with 8MB RAM, running on Windows 7 64-bit. Here is what I mean, in the POSKY 777 (I had to use my phone as it was impossible to capture the effect through my computer at all): And the CLS 767 has it the worst: It would be great to use these two planes (as part of my 'jump in and fly' fleet) on DX10! :rolleyes: Any tips would be much appreciated as this one has me stumped! I've tried using bufferpools and reducing the sliders in game, and modifying/removing relevant textures from the aircraft, and flying in a sparse scenery area all to no avail... Look forward to any tips! Cheers

    Unresponsive Virtual Cockpit

    I bought the PMDG 737-800/900 from the official PMDG website, and it has been working properly for the first 2 months or so. (I play on FSX:SE) Around 2 weeks ago a problem started occurring. On (some) flights, (maybe something like 2 in 5 flights) the virtual cockpit stops responding to my mouse clicks mid-flight wile cruising. The 2D panels work fine, but the 2D cockpit looks something like this: (thanks @qantas747) I literally can't use anything while in VC. I tried changing camera views using (A) and getting an outside view of the aircraft then going back in, but nothing worked. I tried changing to full screen since I play in windowed mode, and it was responsive again. But once I clicked on one button, it would go back to unresponsive mode. I changed back to windowed mode and the same thing happened. But once I changed to full screen again it would stay unresponsive no matter how many times I switched between the two modes. The same problem happens if I change the scenery while already loaded in-game. This problem is way too annoying and even more frustrating because I play online nowadays. If I play offline its not too big of a deal as I can save the flight, exit the game, relaunch the game, load the flight again and it would work. It is still frustrating either way. I have already submitted a ticket, but would like to hear your opinions.
