DX10 pmdg 777 dome light not working

Recommended Posts

hey all 


posted this in the pmdg forums and we thought we should post here as well seeing as how it may be a dx10 issue 


basically my dome light will not emit light in the cabin, it turns on and shows the lighted texture but has no light 


i have the fixer ( most current )

i've reinstalled the 777

i've deleted the shaders 

ran the fixer again 


still no dice 


it does it with the engine running or not 


any ideas

Thanks Steve your a scholar and a gentleman 


Not sure what was left to do - and basically clutching at straws - I took a visit to my fsx.cfg and what do I see? NUM_LIGHTS=1


1, I'm thinking, 1? That's not right. So pop it back to 8 (as far as I know that's the stock setting) and voila! I have my dome lighting back! Yeah!!!


So a corrupt fsx.cfg was the culprit. No idea how that happened but hey, a good knowledge of your fsx.cfg does come in handy. ;)
