smoke effect !

Recommended Posts

Good evening,I downloaded this file: fsx_boeing_737-200adv_tinmouse_ii_engin e_smoke.zip on Flightsim.I have the following problem: I have to leave the key "I" pushed to see appearing the smoke. As soon as I release this key, the effect stops!I am under FSX Acc pack and W7 64b.Thank you for your help!

Hi 9Q-CNI,I actually downloaded and installed the same file yesterday, because the original was only giving me smoke flares all over the place. It's working fine for me, after a bit of tweaking in the aircraft.cfg file.Did you have the same "I" issue with the original smoke file?This is what I did with the [smokesystem] section in the aircraft.cfg file:[smokesystem]// lon/vert/lat THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL LINE//smoke.0 = -16.5, -2.5, -17, fx_smoke_JT8D.fx THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL LINE, WHICH I DE-ACTIVATED WITH THE // AT THE BEGINING OF THE LINE//smoke.1 = -16.5, -2.5, 17, fx_smoke_JT8D.fx THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL LINE, WHICH I DE-ACTIVATED WITH THE // AT THE BEGINING OF THE LINEsmoke.0 = -16.5, -17, -2.5, fx_smoke_f6.fx I CHANGE THE FILE NAME, AND THE PARAMETERS, TO SHOW THE SMOKE TRAIL IN THE RIGHT POSITIONsmoke.1 = -16.5, 17, -2.5, fx_smoke_f6.fx I CHANGE THE FILE NAME, AND THE PARAMETERS, TO SHOW THE SMOKE TRAIL IN THE RIGHT POSITIONMake sure you only have one [smokesystem] section in your aircraft.cfg fileI have not yet installed the update 1.40 panel.cfg files! Will be doing that later today.Hope this helps you.Happy flying,Manfred

Good evening Madfred,First of all, thank you for your answer.I copied out your "smokesystem" but it changed nothing for me.If I want to see the smoke, I have to maintain pushed the key(touch) "i".I am going to re-try with the file of origin.Thank you very much.Good weekend.

Hi 9Q-CNI,I am certainly not a specialist when it comes to the TinMouse, but I have experience with installing add-ons and the problems that can occur.A question come to mind:Is the smoke working correctly with the original smoke fx file?If No, then you have a problem with the TinMouse II installation. A new download and clear installation of the TM2 might solve the issue. YES, then the issue is isolated to the downloaded smoke file. I would download the zip file again, possibly from a different website and overwriting/replacing the existing one, as the file in use might be corrupt.I hope this might give you some ideas to solve your issue.
