Help! I've lost my beacon!

Recommended Posts

Having recently re-installed a freeware package for Eurocypria 737-800, then adding 'the ultimate boeing panel' to it, I seem to have lost use of my beacon working. All the other switches work but for some reason the beacon is not active when I switch it on. So I unistalled the package and started again but before adding a new panel I used the default to see if the beacon worked but no, the beacon still does not work.

 

I have a feeling that I have done something in the main gauges folder, probabaly overwritten an older or newer file that has somehow made it not to work.

 

Does anyone know how I can fix this problem please?

 

Thanks!

Do you still have all the fx_beaconxxx.fx files in your Effects folder, as listed in the Lights sections of the various aircraft.cfg files?

Do you still have all the fx_beaconxxx.fx files in your Effects folder, as listed in the Lights sections of the various aircraft.cfg files?

 

Well, looking in my effects folder I can see 2 of these files: fx_beacon320pa.fx and fx_beacon3202pa.fx which are the ones for the Project Airbus models I have, so I am obviously missing the fx_beacon file for the package I am referring to. The problem is I don't know how to find it as the package is an installer and and not one where you copy the panel, effects etc into the various files.

 

As for the lights section in the aircraft.cfg file I am not sure if I can see it, I will copy and paste it so you can see for yourself and see what you think:

I was actually asking about the default aircraft, not the addon. In the cfg file you posted above, the relevant lines are:

 

[LIGHTS]

//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing, 6=taxi, 7=recognition, 8=wing, 9=logo

light.1 = 1, 1.600, 0.000, -4.500, Opensky_beacon ,

light.2 = 1, 9.300, 0.000, 9.300, Opensky_beacon ,

 

In this case you should have a file in your Effects folder called Opensky_beacon.fx

No, I do not have that an opensky_beacon.fx in my effects file. How do I add that fx file into my effects folder then?

IIRC, that file was part of quite a few of Project Opensky's models, which despite their demise you can still get from www.projectopensky.com. It definitely comes with this Delta 767-400 which is still lurking in my hangar. So if you download that you ought to get a copy of opensky_beacon.fx, which along with the other .fx files in that download you'd then just move into your Effects folder - and it should work just as well with your 737-800 too. That is, if you don't mind downloading 12MB worth of 767 to get a 4KB .fx file.

That's worked a treat, thanks very much. I did miss seeing the flashing red light on the side of the engines at night time! Thanks again!
