BIG PROBLEM! PLEASE HELP!

Recommended Posts

I have just recently noticed (overnight really) that all digital readouts (i.e. autopilot display windows, radio frequency displays) have gone blank on almost all of my add on aircraft. I notice this on the CLS 747, Wilco 737 and PMDG 747F and maybe others I am yet to check. I am sure this is some kind of guage issue but seeing this across many different developers is very weird. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Bucslax

Hi, It's not a gauge issue but a FS issue. When you start FS, go to "Settings" -> "General" and set "Display cockpit tool tips". That's all. Rgds,Hugo

I do not have any of those aircraft so cannot attempt to duplicate your problem.Do you find the same issue with the default b737-400 for instance (or other default aircraft)?I was under the impression that digital guages use the font named quartz.ttf which should be in your Flight Simulator 9 subfolder named Fonts. There should also be a copy of that font in your Windows/Fonts folder.It is always possible that it has become corrupted so you might try restoring it from Disk 1, Game1.cab. Any file in a .cab can be extracted using Winzip or other good zipping program.Perhaps the suggestion by Hugo would work but I fail to see the correlation between having tooltips active (or inactive) and the digital display in a gauge.Keep us posted!

Thanks Opa,I think i might just uninstall and reinstall the whole thing. :( It does seem if something has become corrupted because I have the font quartz in the fonts folder. I hope this works.Thanks guys for all the help

Weird. How about this: have you installed any guages lately? Try uninstalling the gauges you installed last, maybe that will help...
