Lights and Altitude - Too dark, and too low!

Post by gever1 » 13 Jul 2008, 17:23

Hi, I've got two questions - I've searched the forum and read the manual, but so far the answer has eluded me. My problems are

1 - the cockpit is very dark, making the instruments hard to read. The light switches are all on (full to the right), the electrics are running but the instruments below the VSI are just about unreadable. I pretty much never do night flights (shame, because the cockpit lights up beautifully!) so flying is a real struggle.

2 - the other problem is the fact that the altimeter is showing an incorrect altitude.

Hopefully you can see both issues in the screen shot. I'm at 5000ft, and I'm not sure what the altimeter is saying but it sure isn't 5000ft. I've done the 'B' keyboard thing, but no fix.

Thanks, despite the issues i've mentioned, this is by far the best add-on I've got, back-to-basics flying!

Hello gever1!

1 IMHO It's pretty simular to reality, I do belive real pilots have same problem.

2 Altimeter in meters, it's writen on it.

Hi Andrey,thanks for your reply. I actually find that the view from the right-side of the cockpit is a lot brighter in the model I tend to fly (the 91b), so that'll have to do for now.

As for the altimeter, meters, makes sense, I understand now :oops:

Hey Andrey, no,all the lights are on. I'd get you a screen shot but I'm travelling at the minute, so not able to get to the computer with FS9 on it. When I get back I'll update this posting.

How about the map light ?? It's come in very handy on those really dark nights. :grin:
