800/900 Landing lights

Recommended Posts

Guest Exu

Hi;Flying with the 800/900 I noticed that at night, sometimes the landing lights are not visible. (Hardware lights set to 8)This is the scenario, I takeoff from CYYZ runway 6L, Landing lights on ( I see them) climb to 5000, landing lights still on, come around to land on 6L, no more landing lights! I check on the overhead panel, and the landing light switch is still on but I don't see them.Is this a known bug or is it at my end. ThanksEric St-Louis

Same problem here.Departed LGAV (737-800) - everything was OK (taxi/landing lights) when landed at LGRP - no taxi/landing lights.Some more details:1. It was OK with the 700 version (didn't try it after the upgrade)2. "landing lights" are checked under >options>display>aircraft.3. ATI 9700 with cat 4.4 driversExcluding that problem - and even including that problem that upgrade is very close to prefection.Thanks,Amit Pe'er

Hi GuysSame problem here.Take off was fine with all lights working.For landing lights selected on but no visible landing lights.The Landing lights whee extended on the model but not illuminated.Also on a side issue with just the taxi light turned on the rwy turn off lights also illuminate.Also are the internal dome and instrument lights independent as i get a great dome light when selected in the VC but only the instrument lights in the 2D pit.Thans for the excellent job on the 800 she's a ripper.Take careDarren

Guys - This was seen in the beta as well. But we were unable to reproduce it thus we didn't manage to find anything at fault. I run with a geForce FX5600 Ultra and I saw some of the above posters run ATI cards so I don't think this is a driver issue.I've opened up the bug report again so lets wait and see what we can do ok?Cheers,

Hi Goerge;I don't think it's a cat 4.4 driver problem, as I have no problems with other aircrafts, and didn't have any problems with the 600/700.I haven't flown the 600/700 since the 800/900 upgrade so will do that and post here later.By the way, this is intermittent (sp?), doesn't happen all the time.This is still the best aircraft for FS2004!Eric St-LouisP4C800-E Dlx., P4 3.0 Ghz. 1GB ram, Ati 9800 pro.(4.4)

Hi everyone: First thank you PMDG for such a fine plane - just great! I too have the problem to land in the dark. I tried several situations to find out wether it happens only on one occasion or not - no landing or taxi lights... I installed the latest nvidia-drivers and checked all the appropriate options within fs9. seems to be one minor bug in this very complex plane. Thank god we still have the autoland function fully implemented and some torches on the runway here in Switzerland ;-)Cheers from LSZHBenjamin

I have seen issues with other planes that maybe FS default battery goes low and then it will extuinguish the default systems, for example lights. Try setting the battery key and gen key, then press them and see if they come on.

I've got the same deal here as well, I'm running an ATI 9700pro with catalyst 4.4. It seems to be kinda hit or miss but its such a small bug in such a kick butt plane that it almost doesn't even matter. Thanks for a great plane!

Please guys,It's been a couple of days since this bird was released. Most of this time the PMDG crew has worked to get some of their customers access to their downloads. And if you have had the time to read through the wast amount of new posts in this forum you will notice that this issue has been up for discussion already. As a lot of other things so there's been no time for working on fixese as of yet. Also consider it's a weekend and all of us has been working pretty hard to get this thing out with as few errors as possibleYou can't really expect a word or just anything from the development team at this moment... Just wait a couple of days or so and come back... We have seen this on occasion while beta testing. We could however not reproduce the procedures to get this to happen. So thus there was no way to find what was in fault.It is an intermittent issue. It seems it doesn't have anything to do with video drivers. It could maybe be something concerned the tieing the different systems to the different buses, where the battery bus is one. It could be one out of a zillion things... Please. The developers (and the beta team) are aware of this problem. Give us some time. Please?Do I make any sense here?Thanks,

Hi Guys;Just did 3 flights this evening, one with the 700 and the other two with the 800. Each flight was about an hour long. Tried "Extended battery life" in FSUIPC registered version, and DID NOT have the landing and taxi lights problem on any of them. Hope that this is the fix for this. I read in another post that this might also fix the radio problems some people are having.Can anyone else confirm this if you have FSUIPC reg.?Eric St-Louis

EricI've tried different set-ups with the extended battery set OFF and generators ONLINE but never managed to get the landing lights or taxi lights to stop working, neither the radio panel. SO I don't think this is the case...Cheers,

Same problem here - lights work fine until at some point during taxi, approximately three minutes into it.Was able to duplicate on the 800 and 900. Haven't tried the 700.Affects taxi, turn off and landing lights only. FSUIPC battery has no effect.
