    New PM builds available - 07 Aug 08

    PM have brought out a new bunch of builds for Boeing aircraft and appear to have addressed a number of major issues.

    So guys - please get in there and test them, and report back here - it's important we help each other out like this.

    And please report back to PM... report bugs (nicely) but also thank them when they get things fixed.

    It's great to see PM working away at things again and responding to feedback. They are also providing more info on build changes, which is great. Thanks PM!

    Positive note ...good ...because, believe me, it is a h*ll of a good product,
    Our little world would not be the same without people like Enrico, Pete Dawson, Luciano, etc and a host of enthousiasts who gave zillions hours of their time to make it work.
    (just try to figure out CAE price list and be happy)

    Only late evening remarks after a good Scotch ! and a short SID out of Tokyo which worked out without a glitch!
    (SID first, Scotch at debriefing...of course)
    Cheers

    Latest official builds gc456 mcp428 cdu398 ... a BIG THANK YOU

    I did several test routes with the latest builds ( routes mentioned earlier here on the forum - EBOS/EDDP - EBOS/LSGG - EBOS/LFPG (lots of STARs)
    and the problems with portions of the route dissapearing when entering the STAR or RWY's
    are gone !!!
    Aircraft and CDU are behaving as they should during entering new STAR's or RWY's aswell


    In the GC a lot of special B744 stuff as been incorporated aswell the possibilty not to show wind dir / speed on the ground .

    In real life this is also the case, as wind dir / speed is a calculated item by FMC on base of offset Route / drift etc.

    So all together these builds are a great progress and Enrico did big efforts to let it all work smoothly.

    I can't speak for the B737

    A big thank you to Enrico and PM

    B. Rgds

    Hello everybody,

    As Michel said a big thanks to Enrico. I'll test the new builds as soon as possible with the B737 as I've mentionned on a post directly adressed to Enrico but I see we're on a good way to find a nice working solution. Yesss

    Have tested all new updates and here are some little problems with my setup:

    . Overhead annunciators doesn't light up (bright or dim) for both engines
    - ENG VALVE CLOSED and SPAR VALVE CLOSED

    PS: This happens with my OVHD hardware (graphic mode iluminates normal), need to know if any offset was changed for this or if it is related to pmsystems or pmGC, see below.

    . Same for EICAS yellow anunciators, none of then below light up for both engines.
    - START VALVE OPEN, OIL FILTER BYPASS only LOW OIL PRESSURE goes up


    . MCP IAS/MACH now blinks "8" on first left digit, only stop blinking after setting IAS to 160 knots. This is a SPEED CONDITION SYMBOL for overspeed Vmo, Landing gear or flap limit as i know or i am wrong with something?, in this case if i set V2 speed for take off it goes blinking until reach 160 knots....


    . on EICAS i have no smooth operation of WHITE N1 comand by thrust lever position, it goes up and down like STEPs when i move thrust lever.


    Until now this are my reports, i think that all other issues has gone.....

    Just to complete my information i am using B737-700 with PMDG air files and CPFLIGHT MCP Hardware RS232 version.

    Hi Carlos,
    I suppose this is for a B738 setup ? (maybe always better to mention which setup you have)
    I don't see any interruptions in EICAS display operations on my side, (B744)
    I know with PM systems 112 some offsets has been added, maybe check your sysvar.txt

    Hi Jan,

    I have NAI indictions in the B744 upper EICAS when it is needed.

    As I'm using the Aerosoft MCP, I can't commend on the CP flight, but here is working normal. M0.86
