MILTON SHUPE DASH7 SPECIAL EFFECTS

Recommended Posts

High to all,do you use the fantastic Dash 7 (Cargo) from Milton Shupe?What a bird.With the new cargo version there are special spray effects included.Here starts my problem.The effects did not appear. All settings are as required (i hope so).Weather with rain or snow, speed more than 40 knots and the runway indicator in the panel indicates "wet concrete". But the spray effect did not appear. What is going wrong?I installed the files in my effects library and the bmp,s in the effects texture library. Anyone with same experiance or any idea to come over?Any answer is very much appreciated.Best to youAndreas

I took off from Baltimore-Washington (KBWI)yesterday in driving rain and could not see the effects either. The panel indicated "concrete rain."Airbus

Sorry for the delay in getting to this. Hopefully the following should fix your problem.The cabfile reference to the gauge in the Panel.cfg file needs a small change from D7! to Annun!.Open the panel.cfg file with a text editor like Notepad and look in sections:Window00 for Gauge 125 and :CHANGE FROM gauge125=D7!Surfacefx, 775,20,5,5TOgauge125=Annun!Surfacefx, 775,20,5,5Then scroll down to Window05, Gauge 80 and:CHANGE FROMgauge80=D7!Surfacefx, 777,279,5,5TOgauge80=Annun!Surfacefx, 777,279,5,5

That's great Walter.It seems that one file was placed in the wrong .cab file at the last packaging. Sorry for the inconvenience.Scott will be uploading a panel.cfg fix for both this and the overhead panel gauge issue.Milton

Hi lando,take the panel with panel.cfg from the cargo version and the effects should work also for the passenger version.BestAndreas

Simply replace the Dash7v1/Panel contents with a panel.cfg which aliases to the Dash7c1/panel.(FLTSIM) Replace () with square bracketsproduct_code=FSIMalias=Dash7c1panelMilton
