Strange looking lights in cockpit

Recommended Posts

Guest V4DIV-CVN-70

Hope someone can help here, I had left the MD-11 flying while eating dinner and when i came back to it it was night time and some cockpit textures had a funny pixel/checkerboard look to them, It is hard to explain. when I turn on the flood light it goes away. I have a link below to a screen shot (big file) maybe someone could download it and help me out.PS is there a way to make the screen shot smaller file size?http://www.monckscornerprorodeo.com/MD11LightsScreenshot.BMP

I bet its a graphic driver problem. I get it too but not that extreme. I get it just a little where the cockpit lights are on the from of the panel.

I have that problem too. In 2D and VC. :( Looks like a grid over the panel.

my guess is it might be a Foo Fighter. Has been reported by commerical pilots from time to time.foo fighter was used by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II to describe various UFOs or mysterious aerial phenomena seen in the skies over the European and Pacific theatres.[1] Witnesses often assumed that the foo fighters were secret weapons employed by the enemy, but they still remained unidentified post-war. Despite these fears, there are no reports of injuries resulting from actions of foo fighters.Though usually thought of as smaller blobs of light or fire, several different types of reported phenomena, including large structured objects, were classified as "foo fighters".
