overhead panels switch lighting

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

  On my overhead upper and lower panels the switch/knob names are blurry and not lighted.  I have 3-D high res ticked on FSX settings.  I am running 32 bit, dual core 2.8, 4gb ram. This happens both on day/night time. 

 

thanx in advance

Have you used the "texture manager" that the PMDG NGX comes with? You can choice between Normal and High resolution VC.

Sorry I cant find that texture manager.  I found High res and Low res in the NGXPerfman.exe.  I checked that High was in use but there was no difference....thanx

Check to make sure your video card is configured properly.

Check to make sure FSX is configured to use higher resolution.

Check to make sure your FSX.cfg* has the appropriate TextureMaxLoad value.

 

*If you don't know where to find this file: Google [your operating system version - Win 7 or XP] and FSX.cfg.

TextureMaxLoad=3

 

Should be 2048 of 4096.  That should fix it.

Actually, that's not correct, there are two parameters:

 

TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD and TextureMaxLoad, the first one should be "2048 or 4096", but the second one not.

Oh man!  Good catch!  Thanks!

To be honest I noticed there are two similar lines accidentally while I edited my FSX.cfg, but I do not have an idea what's the purpose of TextureMaxLoad line, nor what value should be used. :smile:

Sorry for stating the obvious, but have you also selected. "high quality VC" in the fsx configuration menu?

THANX TO ALL!!!!!     problem solved....

 

I changed the FSX cfg this way: TextureMaxLoad under [Display] to 4096 and Texture_Max_Load under  [Graphics] was updated to 2048

 

thanx again for all support
