FSX Sun Issue

Recommended Posts

Hello

I was not sure where to post this but lately I have been having this border around the sun which looks odd.  I noticed this happened after installation of REX4 but cannot say for sure REX 4 is causing it.  I have set Direct X to DX10 enabled in REX4 for sun effects.  I am also using the DX10 fixer tool.  Its best described with a screenshot below:

 

Anybody else having this issue with the sun?  Any ideas what may be causing it and how to correct?

Thanks and Happy Holidays to all!!

Probably an issue with one of lens flare textures. Copy the content of suneffect.cfg from FSX folder root.

How is this done?

 

[sCENERY]

LENSFLARE=1

DAWN_DUSK_SMOOTHING=1

IMAGE_COMPLEXITY=5

ShowMissingTextureAlert=1

ShowMissingTextureAlert=1

I have added the entry into my FSX.cfg and still have the same issue with sun. Also after adding the line to my FSX.cfg I get an error message that states: Failed to load texture: sunglow2.bmp?

Any other suggestions?

Here is another pic of the sun.  I have removed the MissingTextureAlert=1 line from fsx.cfg and I have disabled lens flare:

Looks like the missing texture alert has alerted you that the missing texture is: sunglow2.bmp. Don't have REX4 myself, so I can't speak to whether or not it's a REX4 issue.

Indeed, I would suggest you ask over at the REX forums. The issue is a missing texture, whether it is related to REX I cannot tell but they should at least be able to tell you if sunglow2.bmp is a texture that they recognize.

Yep, as I mentioned, you're missing sunglow texture from FSX/Texture folder.

 

Two solutions:

 

- edit suneffect.cfg file in FSX root folder and find this line:

 

SunSize=1200
MoonSize=6072
SunTexture="sun.bmp"
LensFlareCount="6"
RenderCorona="0"
RenderGlow="1"
RenderMoonCorona="1"

 

change to RenderGlow="0"

 

This way you disabled sunglow texture in FSX.

 

Second solutions is to find sunglow2.bmp file somehow, either install FSX again, or try Gauges Recovery tool (find it on google).

Thanks for the input fellas. This sun issue has started after installing REX4 so I will check in on their forum as well for the missing sunglow texture.
