    PMDG, PM CDU & FMC, & PM Sounds

    Hi Guys, all the best for 2005.

    My dilemma is. Most of us 737NG builders like using PMDG, I for one prefer
    PMDG because of the more realistic sounds, and naturally the Flightdeck is
    more detailed and up-to-date, if youíre a NG fan that is. I have tried the
    patch that is supposed to let you run PM software with PMDG. However is just
    doesnít work properly. I know that it says that the PMDG FMC becomes
    inoperable which is ok I suppose, but all sorts of strange things happen, like
    the main FS computer Freezes, Crashes, Stutters to name but a few.

    Now the thing is; the other day I managed to get them working fairly stable
    together without any serious problems using a P4 running FS9 and the PMDG
    737-700 with the patch. Project Magenta FMC was also running on another P4
    machine seen by FS9, the PM FMC even sends information to PMís ND. So far so
    good, but as soon as I start up the PM CDU when sitting at the end of the
    runway the PFD and the ND looses some of itís graphics, the PFD looses itís
    blue & brown display, and the ND looses all of itís rings and info.

    Not giving up I pushed the throttles forward and upon reaching about 500 to
    700 feet the PFD & ND graphics suddenly go back to normal.

    Now suppose I just wanted to stick with the default 737-400, but wanted to
    used all of the PMDG sounds, has anyone done this? Or does anyone know how to
    do this? Because the way I see it, is I will not be using the 737-400
    display anyway just the outside view, but this idea will give me a stable
    platform, but with the better 737-700 sounds.

    I have also downloaded the ĎPM Soundsí but how are you supposed to run them?
    Do they just sit in the background on the FS9 PC?

    Finally, I would be interested to here if anyone has managed to crack thisÖ

    All the Best,

    Karl

    , but as soon as I start up the PM CDU when sitting at the end of the runway
    the PFD and the ND looses some of it's graphics, the PFD looses it's blue &
    brown display, and the ND looses all of it's rings and info.are you sure
    the cdu IRS POS is set http://www.projectmagenta.com/notams.html 01/04
    B-GC If you see blank displays in the Boeing Glass Cockpit with ATT in the
    PFD and MAP in the ND ... you have two options: 1.. Enter your
    origin airport in LSK2L, the lat/lon will appear to the right of it.
    Press LSK2R, the LAT/LON is copied to the scratchpad. Press LSK4R, the
    LAT/LON is entered into the set IRS POS prompt Your GC should light
    up normally. When this is not done, the PFD/ND will work as soon as
    you are airborne... not realistic but a workaround... 2.. You don't
    want all that fuss, you go to MENU SETTINGS and cycle PREFLIGHT to OFF or
    ON, not FULL...

    Please check the NOTAMS page in the online documentation, I suppose you did
    not enter your position in the CDU...

    You need to run pmsounds on any networked computer with a sound card
    running WideFS, preferably do not run pmsounds on the same computer as
    FS...

    Hi Katy,

    Yes I have checked the NOTAMS page, however the graphics change before I have
    a chance to enter my postion, once I have enter the airport that I am
    about to depart from the display still does not change. It only goes back to
    normal after take off. There is a couple of thinks that Eric Whiteside has
    sugested which I will try. I will let you know.

    Regards,

    Karl
