bussgarfield Posted May 14, 2011 Report Share Posted May 14, 2011 Hi Pete, I have been avidly watching the PMDG forums for the now 'very soon' to be released Boeing 737NGX. I have FSUIPC and Wideview for FSX and other software for my current system and setup. I asked PMDG whether I would have any issues - when the NGX is released - with it being compatable with my set up. One of the most important issues for me is FSUIPC as I am building my own cockpit. Ryan form PMDG replied thus, There's some misconceptions going on here with respect to what the SDK is: The SDK does not allow X piece of home cockpit hardware to magically work with the airplane right out of the box. That is impossible. The hardware needs to have drivers written that allow it to interface with the NGX - that's what the SDK is, it explains to the makers of the hardware drivers how they can read from and talk to to the airplane. We can't code drivers ourselves because 1. in most cases we don't have any of this very expensive hardware to test with, and 2. it would be incredibly time consuming to do and we need to keep developing new airplanes after this releases. What we're doing is giving the people who write these drivers the information and software framework they need - it is 100% up to them whether or not they choose to write drivers. What you need to do is contact these manufacturers and ask them to develop compatibility for the NGX using our SDK once it's all released. The question I have for you Pete is this, will the current version of FSUIPC for FSX be workable with the NGX or are you planning to contact PMDG and obtain the necessary information for an upgrade.
