Re: Switches not working

As above, you can assign a key to Aircraft Reload in Settings\Controls\Buttons\Keys and this works
whether you are in multiplayer or not.

Re: Strange artifacts in locked spot view

I believe that the aircraft model has its own built in shadow and that it is this shadow texture that is not loading in your case. I can reproduce a similar effect by renaming the SibWings\AN2\Texture\An2_shadow_2.dds file and changing aircraft, although the shape underneath is then black. The failu...

Re: Russian panel

I don't know what it says either, but if you want individual repaint(s) to have Russian labels day and night, put both textures in that/those aircraft's repaint texture folder(s). If you want all your aircraft to have Russian labels day and night, put An2_texture09_C_L.dds in the Sibwings\AN2\textur...

Re: Missing Beacon lights

With many thanks to Racartron, here are two lines which will
add a default FSX effect in the same places, if you don't have
shockwave lighting.

light.12=3, -17.0, 0.00, 4.40, fx_beacon
light.13=3, -11.0, 0.00, -2.62, fx_beacon

Regards,
Nick.

Re: Smoke, smoke and more smoke.

Best call a halt on this topic now. No response from anyone 'in the know' and it's starting to get a bit 'AVSIM' . Thanks Rob for riding to my defence. :grin: Let's all shake hands and go for a beer. :wink: Agreed, sir. My thanks to Dennis. Let's await a solution, if there is one, from the authors ...

Sorry, I was trying to offer a solution.
I bow to your vast experience and
greater knowledge.
Meanwhile, we will fly without smoke.

Re: Smoke, smoke and more smoke.

We have seen it many times, perhaps because we have used a wider variety of aircraft models.
For some reason, FSX appears to transmit the smoke off signal as smoke on, again, only with some
aircraft models.

Re: Smoke, smoke and more smoke.

Fsx multiplayer has more bugs than an ant colony and this is one of them. As there is no [Smokesystem] entry in the aircraft.cfg file, I expect that the rather sophisticated smoke control is in the aircraft model, so the best way to stop it is to move or rename the relevant effects files on all the ...
