Beacon, Strobe Lights Missing

Recommended Posts

Hi,Somewhere along the line I managed to mess up the lights, specifically the strobe and beacon lights, in all a/c. The panel and landing lights are ,oddly, mostly still intact. I reinstalled the effects file from the Game1 FS9 CD but that didn't work, nor did reinstalling the original effects files from the a/c downloads.I'm not sure where to go now. Searching the FS2004 files offered little. Can anyone suggest a solution ?Thanks,Jack

Try reinstalling the textures too. Effects files call up texture files in the Textures folder.
Thanks for the tip. I'll try it.Jack

Hi,Some follow up on the problem regarding the absence of strobes and beacons. After culling out a number of old/unused fx files from the EFFECTS folder the lights are blinking once again. Whether the reduction in the number of files or the removal of some malignant file led to the improvement is unknown to me. I'm just glad there are back. Makes night flying that much more enjoyable.Jack

You might try slowly adding the effects files back in over time until it repeats the behavior. Which ever triggers, toss it in the trash can.
