Hi! Something strange happened. All my startup smoke disapeared and only a "ghost smoke" (transparent) appears.Also the beacon lights, red and green wing lights, except the white that seem to look normal look very dimm. These awesome behaviour are in all my aircraft. I dont have idea what happened.Do somebody experienced these fault? Can I fix it?Thanks,

Most likely reason for that to happen is overwriting the effects files for those things. Have you installed any new aircraft since it was working OK? If so did those aircraft come with any effects files?It's NEVER a good idea to overwrite files when installing. If a new aircraft has a file with the same name of a file already in FS2004 it's best to cut/paste the original file to a safe place then install the new file. That way if you find a problem with the new file all you need to do is drop the original back in.Automatic installers are the worst thing for any flight sim. ALWAYS install by hand. If the airplane comes with an installer point that to a temporary folder then copy the files manually into FS2004.
