  1. Evening guys, Decided to do another flight today to test the PMDG 777 along with UK2000s version of EGLL, and Fly Tampa OMDB. I had to change my settings ever so slightly to get acceptable fps around LHR which was a shame, but OMDB was excellent - I only wished I'd clicked transparent windows now! Oh well, onto the shots, just a few of them today as the majority of the flight was during night hours! Apologies again, this time I saved them in BMP but still the quality decreases, and for some reason it looks like it's taken my Anti-Aliasing out when I've hit the screenshot button! The mind boggles.... Cruise over Iran as the first light appears After (another) G/A, this time due to conflicting traffic taking off toward me, spectacular vectors back round for the opposite runway, 12L. Short finals Disembarking at F6 And a bonus shot of my circuits at Heathrow yesterday to get accustomed to the aircraft! I appreciate that BA don't use the B773 on the LHR-DXB service, but seeing as PMDG only made a B777-200LR variant of the 200 I had to improvise. Thanks!
  2. Hi guys, After still struggling to get used to XP11, and as well as there not being a traffic program I deem acceptable, it was time to upgrade to P3Dv4. After spending the last 3 days tweaking and working out my best configs for graphic/performance combo, I was finally able to undertake my first flight. Unfortunately, I didn't realise the quality loss by saving my files as PNG on standard P3D screenshot, but I have managed to salvage a few. Back to JPEG from now on! Hope you enjoy.. FR792 - B737-8AS EGSS-LIPH Stansted - Venice Treviso 0620-0820z Approaching the Swiss alps prior to descent for runway 07. In the descent for TSF Now we've cleared the high terrain (almost) it's time for a dive to our platform altitude, because P3D gave me a short approach (Thanks ATC ) Ended up doing a G/A because the approach was too short! But after a simple circuit, we were on the ground in Treviso. Thanks for looking

    More DC6....

    So here are a few more shots. I am really loving this one, the IXEG737 is on the backburner at the moment. Having the AFE is a great help in learning this one, gradually easing myself into it. Printed off the 54 page manual and the 2 tutorials, the other one is a 333 page PDF POH. Detail on this is amazing, its my first PMDG so I guess this is what you are used to if you already have one. Been learning the takeoff, rotate, climb, level flight, trimming, AP and linking to GPS.... nearly ready now to tackle the tutorials. It is very important to read the small manual and set up switches etc to get the best out of this and make it easier. You can also turn off/on certain aspects like real startup etc and cut down on the use of the AFE. I never thought I would be enjoying the DC6 as I always flew GA until last year when I tried Aerosofts 320, but this is something different again..
  4. External Model - The external model has been accurately modelled using high resolution 3-view drawings of the actual airplane, and painted in exquisite detail with high resolution photo real textures. Fully Interactive, Dynamic Virtual Cockpit - Designed and animated using the same proprietary techniques developed for previous PMDG award-winning product lines, you will truly enjoy the sensation of "being there" when flying this simulator from the fully interactive and animated 3D virtual cockpit. Stunning, high definition photo real textures in the VC truly brings this cockpit to life, and makes the DC-6 look 100% authentic compared to its real world counterpart. Ramp Manager - External objects can be displayed/hidden using the Ramp Manager, adding to the realism and immersion – Tow Bar & Tractor, Wheel Chocks, Pitot Covers, Engine Oil Pans, Mechanic Stands. Here you will also be able to use the quick setup feature to set up the airplane for Cold & Dark, Ready for Start and Ready for Taxi without having to go through the extensive procedures. Great for when you have limited time. Fuel and Loadout Manager – Using the Fuel and Loadout Manager, you will be able to realistically fuel the airplane’s 8 fuel tanks, load the desired number of passengers and amount of cargo for your next flight. Artificial Flight Engineer (AFE) – The AFE can be used to assist you through various phases of flight: Before Start, After Start, Before Take-off, Take-off (Dry or Wet), Cruise, Descent, In Range, Before Landing, After Landing, Parking. During take-off, cruise and descent phases, the AFE will manage the airplane’s power and related settings for you. Maintenance Manager – The Maintenance Manager will allow you to keep track of and manage your airplane’s engine health, propeller hours, engine oil quantities and related fluids such as water/alcohol, auxiliary oil and anti-ice fluids. You will also be able to see the total airframe hours accumulate. Realism Options – You will be able to adjust the airplane’s realism settings to your preference, such as Engine Damage, Realistic Start, Carb Icing, and CB Failures. Save and Load Scenarios – This feature provides you with the ability to save and load 3 different flight scenarios. You will be able to save the airplane in its current state anywhere in the simulator, and then load the scenario again later. Airplane position (lat/long), altitude, speed, switch positions, power setting etc. will be saved and loaded. This is extremely useful for those interrupted transcontinental flights. Just save now and load again later without ruining your progress. Realistic Animations - The animated parts on the DC-6 were carefully researched and faithfully reproduced to match their operation with the actual aircraft. The DC-6 sports realistically animated gear, gear doors, flaps, cowl flaps, fuel dump chutes, passenger doors and cargo doors, as well as main and front cabin exit stairs. In the VC the CA and FO windows and the FE seat works exactly like their real counterparts. All switches, knobs and levers have been animated using actual video footage as reference. Side Icon Bar – The side icons allows you to quickly access the various management screens (ramp manager, fuel & loadout, AFE etc.). Custom Command System – You will be able to assign various switches, levers, knobs and activities to external hardware via the X-Plane command menu. Using this feature will greatly reduce mouse and keyboard usage. Engine Model – The Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp CB-16 engine model has been accurately modelled, including realistic engine start, variable carb icing based on precipitation, dew point and OAT, realistic CHT behaviour, oil temperature heat-up and cool-down rates, realistic oil consumption, realistic oil pressure that varies based on oil temperature, water injection detonation suppressant for high-power take-offs, a realistic auto-mixture system correcting for air density and high/low supercharger modes with corresponding effects on critical manifold pressure, altitude and torque. A failure model (optional, can be disabled in Realism Options) is included. Engines are prone to abuse as well as wear and tear when the failure model is enabled. Airplane Systems and Equipment - The DC-6’s systems were reproduced to match the operation of those in the real aircraft, and include: De-icing, Electrical, Engines, Fuel, Hydraulic, Oil, Pressurization, Propellers and Water Injection. Sperry A-12 Automatic Pilot Bendix King KX 155 NAV/COMM Transceiver Bendix King KR 87 ADF Receiver Bendix King KI-227 ADF Indicator Garmin GI-106A GPS/VOR/LOC/Glideslope Indicator Bendix MN- 61A Marker Beacon System Bendix KT76A Transponder Bendix KMA24 Audio Panel Bendix KDI572 DME Receiver Realistic Fuel System – The fuel system has been accurately modelled, and includes the 8-tank main and alternate fuel system with cross-feed, realistic fuel pressure system and the fuel dump system with accurate dump rates. AC/DC Electrical Bus System – The electrical bus system includes realistic amp draw and voltage, as well as battery drain and charging. Realistic, Immersive Sound Set - To increase the level of realism and immersion, individual switches, levers, knobs, aural warning sounds, and an array of systems sounds were recorded from an actual DC-6 expressly for the purpose of providing total flight deck realism and realistic audio-tactile feedback. The sound set covers every sound you would expect to hear inside the DC-6 cockpit, as well as from the exterior view. Highly realistic effects of the relationship between throttle positions, prop lever positions and engine RPM creates an authentic DC-6 in-cockpit sound experience. Add-on Liveries - As is always the case at PMDG, numerous free add-on liveries are available for a variety of real-world DC-6 operators. Flight Model – The DC-6 flight model has been tested and given the thumbs up by several type rated pilots who are current on type. If they say she flies like a DC-6, we’re not going to argue.

  8. Hi everybody I would need some help regarding my latest payware aircraft.....PMDG's 737 NGX. It's a wonderful aircraft, I definitely love it, but the fact is that it crashes in some occasions... If i take a look at the map and then get back to FSX, i get a whole black screen and the hateful Microsoft's fatal error.... or, if I apply differential thrust, for example for lining up on the runway, it does the same, but by freezing the actual screen, instead of showing the black screen. Now, as I have paid 70 bucks, I'd love to solve this pretty annoying issue.... Any ideas? I'm running W8 and never had this kind of problem before, not even on the PMDG 747-4. Thanks! Eric
  9. Hey guys, Recently I've been having a lot of trouble with my FSX. I had it running fine for about 2 years without a single error, then PMDG released their 777 then that's when all the issues started. To put it simply, I can't fly any long haul flights due to the fact that I get the dreaded 'Your computer has run out of memory' error when around FL060. I must emphasize that even when I'm monitoring the VAS usage when descending and I notice it's getting to the 3.7/8 mark, Lowing settings literally does nothing at all. I have done a few tweaks that have allowed me to just about complete flights such as the bufferpools=0, texture resolution=1024 and so on. This issue has driven me to do a complete re-install, even onto a separate partition on my drive to see if that helps, and still no luck. I've asked PMDG about this and they insist it isn't their plane doing this (which it is). I have only the addons I'm using for the flight since the others would be pretty pointless and I've heard drain performance (which again, disabling them does absolutely nothing). Also might I add that I have FTX GLOBAL, VECTOR and ENG installed and running in Hybrid mode, also UK2000 (now this is where I can't land due to the amount of VAS usage that seems to build up.) Any help guys would be greatly appreciated! Literally my last hope since everyone over on the Avsim forums seems a little obnoxious about my post regarding the same issue.... Best regards Ben

    Hi there can any one help me ? i just had to re install all my pc and after installing FSX back on and all my addons i came up with a probleme.... When i lauch FSX with my PMDG 737 my fsx crashes . It was working fine until i had to reinstall all my PC. Can anyone help me please. Thes are the things i have already done: 1) Updated graphics card 2) Compatebilty as Admin and as Windows XP
  13. I mentioned elsewhere (Kaspers latest ATWC post) that I had been having a bit of fun with the PMDG 737 NGX lately. What I didn't mention there is that it has been giving me fits with FSX. I'm going to lay the blame solidly on PMDG's doorstep because nothing else, none of the other planes in my hangar (that I've flown lately) experience the same problems. Problem #1: Many "not responding" error messages. Fortunately, always on startup. Sometimes takes two or three attempts to get the 737 stable enough to start a flight process. Never crashed during a flight. All of the PMDG suggestions for proper setup have been followed to the letter. Problem #2: I normally run FSX in the standard screen mode, ie: not full screen. I do this because I often pop out to other programs to do things pertinent to the flight. Eg: read sids, stars, approach plates, etc. while flying. In the 737, if I do this, I cannot recover FSX by clicking on the FSX icon on the lower task bar in Win7. To get the sim back, I've got to load Task Manager and recover FSX by "bringing it to the front". This one is real strange because it's absolutely the first time this has ever happened. Problem #3: I'm using a Gamepad, because I'm travelling, instead of my usual joystick. This required some changes to the default.cfg file in the controls setup menu. All other planes that I've flown using this Gamepad operate as advertised. The PMDG 737, on the other hand, occasionally scrambles the button assignments. Picture the throttle increasing during taxi when I press the decrease button. First, I increase rpm, to about 30%, to get the plane rolling, then immediately decrease to idle. The plane rolls along quite nicely at very low throttle settings. Last night, I ran across this problem where the rpm increased despite hitting the decrease button. The solution was to use the keyboard commands F1 - F4 to control the throttle. At the same time as the throttle inputs were scrambled, the brakes (assigned to the two "shoulder" buttons) ceased to work. This requires the application of the period to slow or stop the plane. Loading the default Cessna 172 without exiting FSX yields normal responses to these inputs. PMDG specifically mentions NOT to use FSUIPC to assign button commands, so I have not done so. In fairness to PMDG, I'm using two different pieces of software/hardware than I have used in the past when flying the 737 back at home. The first is the Gameboy. I'm NOT convinced this is a problem because it is using exactly the same software (FSX default control menu) as I use with the Logitech Joystick. The second is a piece of software called "VAInterface Lite" which links the iPad "Virtual CDU" to FSX over a TCP/IP connection. I have not tried testing the PMDG 737 without this software and link. Easy enough to do and if it yields results, I'll report back, here. Don't hold your breath. I have been very careful NOT to load one session with the PMDG software over another. This is specifically noted as being a no - no by PMDG. They remark that lots of instability will be your reward if you make this mistake. Sequence is: Finish flight, Exit FSX, Restart FSX, Load new PMDG session. I'm not put out by these issues. I know I'll eventually find the solutions. I am, otherwise, very happy with the PMDG product and have been planning on adding the 777 as soon as I get back to Canada. That's my $0.02. YMMV
  14. Of interest to those flying PMDG and iFly 737's who own iPads: Quick note re: Virtual CDU - a new version has been released (April 18th) for use on the iPad. Unfortunately, I can't comment on it because it will only work if your iPad is running ios6. Mine won't be running ios6 until I get back to Canada. Here's the URL https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/virtual-cdu/id634731446?ls=1&mt=8
