Title: PMDG 777
Post by: Eagle77 on September 12, 2013, 10:04:44 PM
Hi there,

I appreciate you have been busy with the PFPX launch but is there any chance you now have an idea of when we can expect a profile for the 777 in the awesome Topcat?
Just a loose estimation will do like in 1/2/3 months time (I'm not pressuring for specifics!).

Thanks for the great products and keep up the awesome work.

Hello,

It is a very complexe and time consuming work to add new aircraft types into TOPCAT (digitizing of a huge amount of Graphs and tables,...).

it would probably take 2-3 months - depending, if Christian gets some vacation (as he flies for an Airline).

The next one will be the B777!

Brgds,
Judith

How long until we can get the T7 profiles

Will it include the 200ER 200LR F and 300ER?

Hello Judith!

How can we simulator pilots be of help to you and Christian?  As pilots, we are excited to have PFPX and Topcat working together, and naturally since PMDG NGX and 777 are two extremely popular aircraft in FSX, we would like to help you realize support for both planes.

Selfishly, I bought PFPX mostly to do International flight planning, and plan to fly in the ETOPS B777 for American Virtual Airlines (AVA.org).  I was a bit surprised to find the 777 already is supported in PFPX and sadly not yet in Topcat.

I bought the bundle of both products thinking that PFPX and Topcat seemed to be natural partners with each other, but the missing Triple 7 is a slight disappointment, only.  I realize that the job of putting the performance data into your program is time consuming, and wonder if any of the very bright pilots in simulation world could help you accomplish this task?

I would be willing to, but I program in Visual Basic only.  Could you ask PMDG for help on this??  Might they be willing to give you the performance data that they got from Boeing?

If we all work together, likely MORE SALES for Topcat, and happier Topcat owners who just bought the program.

Thank you for any ideas!

Warm wishes,

Robert McDonald

Hello Robert,

Thanks first for your proposal.

As said in an other post, TOPCAT aircraft profiles are C++ dll with an huge amount of manufacturer data.
If you could program in C++, you can send a private message to Christian.

Best Regards
Pierre
Title: Re: PMDG 777
Post by: Robert McDonald on October 11, 2013, 10:07:34 PM
Hello Pierre!

I did send Christian a note.  If you guys furnish me with some instructions and a sample template, it's possible I might be able to help somehow, I certainly am willing to try!  While I don't know C++, I do program in VisualBasic so how hard could it be?  If I had samples to look at, and some idea of what you needed done, along with the appropriate data points from PMDG, it shouldn't be too difficult!

I know that PMDG worked closely with you on PFPX, and gave access to their 777.  One of their lead programmers was beta tester for you on PFPX.  So I believe they will 'help' with data if that is needed??

I truly believe that this airplane is very very popular, and if you could make Topcat support the 777 it would likely increase your 'bundle' sales, and of course the annual renewal subscriptions too!

I would be happy to try!

Please send me a PM and let me know how I can be of help!

Hi Robert,

There is two years ago, I did ask to Christian to send me a template of TOPCAT aircraft profile for trying to create a new for Concorde X for which I own real life data (worked around 30 years at Aerospatiale on Concorde from 1969 to 1972).

As I was developer using Delphi, I though it was easy to code a "dll" which works with TOPCAT.
unfortunately, this dll must be wrote in C++ to working well with.
I even tried to code it with C++ builder that i own. One more time the dll must be only coded with visual C++ studio.

My knowledges with C++ being near from zero, I couldn't implement the deal.

Try to do it with Visual basic is may be possible.

Only Christian will be able to answer this question.

Thanks again

Best regards
Pierre

There was a talk of this years ago, wasn't there?

Much did not happen. There are people who would make stuff, if there was an official SDK with official guidelines as to what to do and what not to do in regards of development. I know of such people myself.

Is it possible to get an offical guideline there?
Title: Re: PMDG 777
Post by: Pierre95 on October 18, 2013, 02:00:53 PM
Hello,

No guideline can be given because, if given, people will be unsatisfied if not respected even for goo reason, and if no not given people will be unsatisfied too.

All the best

It took us some time to work in into programing of the file as it is very complex.

We´ve almost finished the take-off part, and the landing part is very short.
After Take-off and Landing, there will be some tests and improvements.

Will report again when we start the beta tests.

Hi. Just wanted to ask when the PMDG 777 profile is released will it be only for 77L and 77F or 77W also? Since 77W is "around the corner" it would be nice to have the 77W profile at the same time also even if it's before the 77W release. Maybe can work with PMDG or something. Anyway just a question but thanks a million for putting in the work so we all can enjoy it! Will be worth the wait I am sure! :)

Thanks

Pls understand Pierre WE are paying customers of both PFPX and TOPCAT so an answer like "you just have to wait" is not a very nice reply.
If ppl cant deliver what they promise then just say so its been over 2 months and the reply was it shouldnt take to long well do you have an estimate time frame for the update?.
Im not trying to bash the company here im just stating that ppl have bought these 2 products and 1 is working and the other is not.

Total agree with Mattias,

Im a very first buyer of Topcat. Great program but is now time for a big update! Even the almost ''old'' PMDG NGX is not supported.
So it is very user friendly to give a normal reaction to the costumers.

Post by: Fadamor on March 28, 2014, 01:52:25 AM
"Timely" information means it is delivered only when it will do any good. Apparently this company feels that keeping their customers informed is not something that will do any good.  We hear it is in the "final stage" and then hear nothing more for months except for this ridiculous "timely" farce.

P.S. You don't do the "final stage" BEFORE you do the beta test.  The beta is usually the "final stage" before release.

Post by: steeleimaging on March 28, 2014, 02:32:29 AM
This is crap. A topic started in september for a 777 profile for PMDG and it's still not out? What are you using to "digitize" the data? A windows 3.5 computer? An Apple IIc?

You guys should be embarrassed by this entire debacle. Your customers, by all accounts, on this thread have be very patient. I just bought this this evening hoping to use is for the 777. No go.

My fault, I bought PFPX and enjoyed it. I had no idea the other half of this program was a complete joke... on me.

Post by: wedge on March 28, 2014, 08:49:57 AM
That is stupid they are a small team. They probably need to work with the data to put them in the right format first, so I don't know how they do it but probably a lot of manual work.
But also as with anything that has to be tested in order to make sure it works, give valid results and all. There also have been an announcement about navigraph updates for Topcat, there might be some other works going on too.

Topcat is not the newest program, but there is a great value, and I understand they take their time, just like PMDG did to have quality products you don't rush things to get it released. It'll come when it is done. That's the most important to me, while waiting I can still do it manually that's not a big deal.

So I was reading along quietly since I'm ok to wait for this "short to release" (since december at least) update to topcat...completly fine with the delay, since i got other things to do...never had a reason to ask for something here or complain something

But this comment, from an official mod of this forum is just a slap in the face

Paying customers (and that product is not in the cheap priced region of fs) are blamed, that they don't even offer their help regarding the update, to the devs...wtf? Do mercedes ask me to help them to develop a new car, or even blame me, when they can't get out an new car in time just because i didn't helped them...

This comment is edging the word "sass"...

I'm willing to help freeware devs to develop their products...but "companies", which are taking my money, announce something they cant deliver for whatever reason and than blame me, as a paying customer, that I don't offer my help to develop the product... I almost speechless

Hello,

Sometimes, a slap in the face is good for rascal / scamp / spoiled children

Continue to wait the release.

Sometimes, a "we apologize, but we were wrong with our time frame" is good for customers/ future customers/ former customers?

Hello Folks,

I want to put my comment to this thread as I've been wondering how some fools punish people who are
really trying to make us our hooby so enjoyable.

I've been flying a desk since more than 20 years. At no stage I feel a progress even in flight preperation
as in the last years. When Topcat arrived we had the chance to calculate reliable take-off and landing data.
Thanks to Judith and Christian it was best stuff for a very much achiveable fee.

Than the development of PFPX was announced. When it arrived it blow of my socks. Never mind the time from
announcement to delivery.

There are more or less two people. I heard no promise for anything to deliver on certain date. They are not Microsoft 

Years ago the swiss puplisher Urs Wildermut ask: Are we still flying? Because the main discussions went around tweaks here
adjustments there, slow hardware, huge time consumption to plan a long haul flight, dozens of different resources to complete
it in a way that sounds "As real as it gets".

Now we are able to prepare a flight perfectly within some minutes. Thank you Judith and Christian.

Those of you criticize the developers of those fantastic tools, crying like babys lost there toys when missing a functionallty
that is promised to deliver later. I really dislike those kind of behavior.

No life is depending on delivery even later or not.

Please keep on your great work. I will wait as long as you need to do it.

Best Regards

Andreas Hövel

Hi. =)

With the release of PMDG 777-300ER around the corner.
Do you plan to release a TOPCAT profile for it? Any timeframe?

So, can we expect a profile for this aircraft?

I'm quite interested in having the 777-300ER as well, if there is anyway I can provide help don't hesitate to tell me, even if it's digitalizing data, boring tasks, if that can be of somehelp, that's fine ;)

Cheers!

As a user of TOPCAT and PMDG 777-300ER I add my vote to this profile being generated. I love your work TOPCAT team and was very pleased to upload the update to the B777-200 at no extra cost from the original purchase fee . I know this data collection takes huge amounts of time and effort and running services to provide this product is not free. I can not speak for others but I do not expect to keep getting more and more profiles for nothing. I love your product and use it for my B738 flights. I do not wish to see this product vanish from the ether so I would be happy to pay for individual upgrades as they are released. Thankyou.

Pierre, what are you currently working on for TOPCAT profiles...anything at all?

thanks

Pierre, doesn't work on TOPCAT, he is the forum administrator, nothing more..

But of course it would be nice if the current 777 profile leaves the Beta status.. Can you get a statement from Christian to this, Pierre?

Hi!

Yes we do.
But this takes many times to collect and organize the data then coding the module.
