  1. Apparently, not fully compatible.:unsure:
     
    Some people have reported a bug with GPWS callouts while loading the config from my INI files. I checked this out, and yes, unfortunately, the GPWS section of the config loads correctly only if the order of the lines in INI file is the same as in the MSFS PMDG NG3 version ini file…
    It definitely shouldn't be like this. It makes no sense, and has never worked this way in P3D NGXu - as long as the option names and sections are correct, the options would load regardless of the line order.
     
    Here I have two options: to modify almost a hundred of B737NG operators (including other B737NG modifications for the future) and adapt for MSFS, or wait for this bug to be fixed. What would you recommend? Please, write in the comments below.
     
    Can any of the verified PMDG users write about this issue to R. Randazzo and the team? I don't have MSFS, and haven't purchased the product.
  2. With the release of PMDG Boeing 737NG NG3 for MSFS, here is the statement about the INI configs.

     

    As the research showed, PMDG team hasn't changed much in aircraft settings. After the thorough check of the configuration options, I'd like to state that my INI configs for 737 NGXu version are fully compatiable with the MSFS version.
    The configs should be copied into Packages\pmdg-aircraft-737\work\Aircraft

     

    The only caveat is that PMDG added an option for another aft antenna — 2KU. Therefore, United and Delta Air Lines users would need to change it manually from KU to 2KU. I'll release a full update after all 737NG family release for MSFS.

     

    Enjoy!

  4. Thank you for your response. FYI, it's almost midnight UTC, but the wx and track data hasn't updated during the day. Cache has been deleted before starting PFPX.
  5. The METARs and TAFs are a bit outdated, too. Also, it still shows wind/temp data from 00z today when it's well past 06z (cache deleted). But at least I can plan flights now.
  6. Gentlemen, let me throw my two cents here. I've been a proud PFPX user, supporter and devotee since 2013. I was fascinated with the software back then, and still am, as this is the closest thing to the real-world flight planning software, perhaps only slightly falling behind some state-of-the-art systems like LIDO. It has never failed me in my flying. I've always had an impression that Christian and the team made the product potentially to be sold commercially to the real-world aviation, given all the features. Of course, I've made enough substantial input from my side with the PFPX performance packs for the popular aircraft families to help fellow flightsimmers and myself. You can check it out in my uploads to the file library. High level of customization and its flexibility is something that places PFPX well above of a well-known rival. From my real-world aviation projects, I can assure you: you may be surprised that some small airlines (mostly, charter) and general aviation (business jets) use much, much inferior software in the real world than we have here with the PFPX. Is the product dead? No, as long as the navdata, weather and NOTAMs are provided for it. Some people mentioned route planning. I'll be honest, I don't use PFPX route planner all that much. I either get the routings from the real-world sources or build them myself, using PFPX only as an assisting tool. Usually, I do it the old school way — by the maps and charts (Jeppesen, Skyvector etc.). Some people demand updates. And that's fine, there are quite a few things that I'd like to see in the program, too, but I can deal without them easily. Moreover, you may be surprised, but I still use… v1.28.9i, and apart from the NOTAM formatting errors (due to incompatibility in the newer versions, I think) everything works so well that I see no need to upgrade. I get other features (like SIGMETs and Sig Wx) from other sources. Maybe, one day I will upgrade…
  7. Join my Volanta to track my flights.
    I fly for Copa Airlines and occasionally on B737-700 BBJ1 in VATSIM network.

  8. Could you please provide specifics to fix that? Please either PM me or send email to the mailbox stated in my profile.
  9. Yes, 2 presses unsilenced is normal on most modern Boeings. However, I decided to use this setting with purely academic purpose because different flightsim enthusiasts have different level of knowledge, skill, and practice, therefore it may be better for them to know when their autopilot disengages. If you wish, you can disable this setting for yourself.
  10. Yet more B737NG configs. Stay tuned for more next week.
