VC Panel graphics problem

Recommended Posts

Hello all, With some downloaded airplanes there's a strange effect in the VC panel. It looks like a shiny reflective metallic square with gauges and scenery showing through. Everything works fine, but that metallic square where the panel should be is really annoying. Is there a line in the panel cfg that needs changed? Any ideas? Could the planes with this problem be converted from FS9, but still need one more tweak? For what it's worth I have Vista Home Premium 32, AMDx2 5000, FSX Deluxe with sp1, 4 gigs ram and an Nvidia 8600 GT card with latest drivers. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

I assume you have SP2 installed. This is a texture 'issue', nothing in the config. can be changed to get rid of it. Sometimes you can edit the gauge sizes to cover the areas that are now 'shiny' or empty (the rest of the textures are much more troublesome to change), or, hopefully the designer will release a patch to bring it in compliance to SP2, or, simply use aircraft that are FSX Certified by design, which means they have been designed fully to SP2 specifications.I have started doing the latter most of the time, as 'certified FSX' models simply work best all around, including performance.
