PMDG 737 NGX – Update and News!


In the last few hours PMDG have released a announcement regarding a “small” update to the NGX! with a whole host of news from the company starting the most important; the NGX

This is a minor update, as PMDG updates go. It primarily addresses some model errors that we introduced during the last update round, but it also adds quite a bit of optimization and some platform compatibility fixes that we needed to address after seeing the NGX operating on three different platforms.

Only three line items in the change list, but it was actually a pretty significant amount of work all around.

Small, I don’t think so. You will have to download the whole aircraft again! I don’t think that’s small. They also went on to talk about the 777

In other topics we are currently testing a new 777 version that we hope will fix a rather difficult-to-diagnose memory leak that would appear in the 777 under some very specific circumstances.

I will have more to say on this topic a bit later- but suffice to say we will be updating the FSX, FSX-SE and Prepar3D versions of the 777 once we get confirmation from our testers that we succeeded in fixing this nasty little item.

(There are a few folks in this forum who did a magnificent job supporting us in finding this- and you’ll learn a bit more about that in a future update as well!)

After those two they then closed the announcement with pending update news about the J41 which seems to be at the bottom of the list on all announcements that PMDG make.

Beta testing the J41 has taken a back seat to the changes we needed to make to the NGX and 777, but will resume shortly.

Unlike the NGX and 777, the J41 isn’t getting a significant code update, so it is a much simpler test process for us- as it primarily is just an installation validation process. We hope to have that released to you soon as well!

Overall quite a “small” update from PMDG there. For more information and to read the whole post click here
