MSFS: Enable PMDG data access

To access MSFS PMDG Data from SPAD.neXt the following steps have to be completed: (Steps provided for the PMDG 737, for all other PMDG aircraft same steps epply for the aircrafr specific ini-file)

  1. In MSFS the PMDG 737 must have been loaded beyond "ready to fly" at least once and exited again.

  2. Exit MSFS

  3. in Widnows File-Explorer open Store/Gamepass Version %LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\packages\pmdg-aircraft-737\work Steam Version %APPDATA%\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\pmdg-aircraft-737\work

  4. Add to end of 737_Options.ini

[SDK] EnableDataBroadcast=1 EnableCDUBroadcast.0=1 EnableCDUBroadcast.1=1

The EnableCDUBroadcast entries are only needed if you have a CDU Device or want to access CDU Data within SPAD.neXt

Make sure there is a newline/empty line after the last entry, else it will get deleted again by the pmdg

  1. start MSFS and load 737, start flight

  2. start SPAD.neXt

  3. Make sure in SPAD.neXt Settings->Status PMDG Connection shows as connected. If it's not connected check the ini file.

  4. Always 3 green!

All SDK Data and events are referenced in SPAD.neXt in the "PMDG 737 NGXu" category

P3D PMDG 737 NGXu SPAD.neXt Profiles should be working.

Please remember PMDG Simulation Events work exactly like the cockpit. Use the "PMDG Special Actions" to do with the event what you would do in cockpit with the mouse!
