PMDG Updates 777-300ER for MSFS

PMDG recently issued the second update (2.00.0036) to their newly released Boeing 777-300ER for Microsoft Flight Simulator, aiming to improve the add-on’s performance and stability.

As previously mentioned, the second update focuses primarily on stability and performance gains, aiming to mitigate the random WASM crashes, low framerate on lower-end systems, and getting rid of the infamous TA/RA bug inducing freezes on final approach. The full changelog follows below:

14444: [Virtual Cockpit - Geometry/Textures] Gasket missing from gear handle opening (vscimone)
14342: [Virtual Cockpit - Functionality/Click-Spots] Missing broadband switch on overhead (hvanrensburg)
14425: [Virtual Cockpit - Geometry/Textures] Missing INOP stickers for ADF 1 and 2 (vscimone)
14345: [Virtual Cockpit - Functionality/Click-Spots] UFT can be mounted on open window in VR (hvanrensburg)
14401: [General - SDK] MCP Lvars return incorrect values for VS and IAS (abashkatov)
14423: [Main Panel - EICAS Display Issues] Lower Display Unit engine indications placement too high (abashkatov)
14428: [General - Suggested/Missing Features] Undocked displays do not work in external views (abashkatov)

14418: [Virtual Cockpit - Geometry/Textures] Gaps on wipers (jbrown)
14371: [External Model - Geometry] Strobe lights during day and far zoom (jbrown)
14400: [Virtual Cockpit - Functionality/Click-Spots] Yokes moves on opposite direction on drone (jbrown)
14412: [Virtual Cockpit - Geometry/Textures] LCD Display margins relative to the frame correct? (vscimone)
14403: [Virtual Cockpit - Geometry/Textures] Left cockpit window frame clipping (vscimone)
14402: [Virtual Cockpit - Geometry/Textures] Bag Stowage Placard mis spelled (vscimone)
14376: [Virtual Cockpit - Geometry/Textures] Little geometric inaccuracy on window blind bars (vscimone)
14344: [External Model - Geometry] Nose lines on radome (jbrown)
14303: [FMS - Route/Legs Pages] Route save from RTE pg 1 fixed (emvaos)
14356: [Virtual Cockpit - Geometry/Textures] Various VC issues (vscimone)
14263: [FMS/AFDS - VNAV] Beta 29: Top of Descent (T/D) Indication is missing its small green circle (abashkatov)

Randazzo also mentions it’s not usual practice to add every little change to the checklist, but they want to emphasize how many faults are being corrected in pursuit of optimal stability. 

They say the next update is already being worked on and is anticipated to follow sometime this weekend unless they make a breakthrough in the areas affecting user experience (like fully mitigating the WASM lockups). 

The add-on is available on for $77.73.
