    Microsoft FSX FSX and full supported PM aircraft

    Dear All, this is my first thread and i'm happy to found this valuable site.

    I'm actually using FS9 with PMDG737, PM System, PM GC FO&CPT, PM MCP, CDU & RCDU...so almost full house.

    MCP, Overhead, Radios, Com are controlled by hardware solutions.

    Everythings works fine and stable.

    I plan now to change over to FSX.

    Is there an existing FSX (because of graphic enhancements) solution / airplane which i can use in FSX to get an almost same result like now including flight performance / characteristics?

    I churn up so many threads ...then more i read then more im confused.

    I figure out:
    - no there is no fully supported aircraft for PM and FSX, is this correct?
    - specally the overhead is a big open topic yet because of the missing plane which supports the overhead features?
    - it's possible to use FS9 PMDG in FSX without panels (which would be ok for me)
    - PMDGs 737 FSX should arrive mid of the this year (...so not before 2010)...and it's unclear if this ride will work

    Question: is there any stable and working solution with FSX

    Thank for all hints, greetings Henning

    I am in the middle of this transition as we speak. When I get home tonight, I am hoping to dump my PMDG into FSX, I have read there is a way to achieve this.

    I will post back tomorrow with my findings.

    I successfully installed PMDG 737 into FSX (in Vista & Windows 7 beta) using the "Windows XP" compatibility and "Run as administrator". I did have to move some files because FS9's file structure doesn't have the SimObjects folder. I was not able to install the PMDG 737-800/900 addon (but that was because of Vista not FSX).

    Everything seems works in FSX (aircraft performance / characteristics are good), except if you use "Preview Direct X 10" the aircraft skin textures do not show. You get an all aluminum looking aircraft.

    Now, keep in mind I only use the aircraft file and PMDG overhead. I use Project Magenta's Boeing GC, MCP and CDU - so I deleted some gauges/panels from the panel.cfg file in order for Project Magenta's software to work.

    The pop-ups that show up in FS9 showing the databases being loaded does not display for me in FSX - so maybe PMDG's CDU doesn't work? I don't know.

    The Add-On Converter X add on (http://www.flightsimtools.com/adconvx) deals with that quite well!
