Help me to get the rotating beacon light to work

Recommended Posts

I have a GMAX US Navy Gulfstream IV (the one made by Rick Sasala) and the rotating beacon light does not come on. Is there something I can type in the aircraft.cfg file to get the rotating beacon lights to come on?Here is what the lights section of the aricraft.cfg file has now:[LIGHTS] //Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landinglight.0=1, -18.223, 0.00, 8.595, fx_beaconbS3 ,light.1=1, -36.572, 0.00, 0.30, fx_beaconbS3 ,light.2=3, -41.75, -39.00, 2.80, fx_navredm ,light.3=3, -41.75, 39.00, 2.80, fx_navgrem ,light.4=2, -41.75, -39.00, 2.80, fx_strobe ,light.5=2, -41.75, 39.00, 2.80, fx_strobe ,light.6=2, -67.10, 0.00, 5.73, fx_strobe ,light.7=3, -67.10, 0.00, 5.73, fx_navwhi ,light.8=4, -10.00, 0.00, 5.44, fx_vclighth ,light.9=4, -20.00, 0.00, 5.44, fx_vclighth ,light.10=4, -33.00, 0.00, 5.44, fx_vclighth ,

I noticed that mine didnt work either. I figured it would be brought to Rick's attention and that he would take care of it. Its defintely not a big deal, but it would look alot cooler for a night flight. I think its a sweet aircraft, but would like to see seats in the back so I could get a corporate repaint and fly all over the place. :)Craig

Just as a guess..maybe no fx_beaconbS3 in 2k2 effects file? (it comes with the plane).

Did you take the effect out of the folder before you put it in to the Main Effect folder? Just a thought...Rick Sasala

>Did you take the effect out of the folder before you put it >in to the Main Effect folder? Just a thought...Rick Sasala I opened the effects folder, copied everything that was in there, and pasted it into the FS2002 effects folder. Did I do it wrong?

Actually I screwed up! I put the wrong effect in the zip file. Just rename the effect fx_beaconbGulf to fx_beaconbS3 . Seems I screwed up both uploads with this goof. If you don't know how to re-name it, just e-mail me at drowberry@earthlink.net and I'll send you a correct one...Sorry Rick Sasala
