Mustafa,This is a small bug in the first release. Pending the patch, see the thread "Flight Deck Lights" for a quick fix to the .cfg.John R

John,From memory this is one of the things I was able to fix and therefore the current base installer should be correct.

Mustafa,If you check each model {75PWF,75RWF,752PW,752RR,753PW,753RR} I think you will find that the 752PW and 753PW are ok. If you wish to update the others, just copy the relevant aircraft.cfg {lights} section across - its the last section; square brackets.Norman,I downloaded about a couple of hours ago - I'll message you with the details.John

Mustafa,1. I assume that you do not see floods in the VC - this is normally a characteristic of the fireball in the nose bug.2. If you post here a copy of your PSS-B752P aircraft.cfg {this is one that should be ok} I will see if I can spot any errors.John R

Mustafa,I have ported your .cfg into my installation and the lighting is fine!1. Do you see the flood lights when you in VC at night?2. Can you post a screen shot of the spot view of the 752P {say the 757-200 PW overwing exits} showing the problem.John R

Mustafa,OK - this is exactly what you get with the 757-200 RR as initially installed from the PSS web site:1. Post me the .cfg for this aircraft please.2. What do you see with the 757-200 PW {this was the previous aircraft.cfg that you posted and that one looked ok on my installation}?John R

Mustafa,I think we are there!1. Attachment #1 is your -200 RR aircraft.cfg modified to resolve the lights issue.2. Attachment #2 is just the modified LIGHTS section of the aircraft.cfg. You need to copy and paste this section into the aircraft.cfg for the freighter aircraft to overwrite the present LIGHTS section.3. Finally, the -300 aircraft require different figures. The -300 PW is correct, so copy and paste the LIGHTS section from the -300PW aircraft.cfg into the aircraft.cfg for the -300RR.Hopefully you will now have all aircraft modified for correct VC lighting.Let me know if you have any more problems.John
