Weird smoke issue

Recommended Posts

I am looking for suggestions for an exhaust smoke issue in FSX.  For no apparent reason the add on jets are now belching thick black smoke and rather than a nice plume the smoke exits the jet pipe in black squares !!??

 

I suspect the EFFECTS folder is corrupt but any ideas for a fix would be welcome.

 

Thanks.

 

Buster.

Run this program to fix your effects file.

Thanks charliearon, gotta love this forum, always someone, somewhere that's helpful with a fix.

 

Cheers.  Buster.

Charliearon.  I ran the programme in basic FSX, SP1 & SP2 mode but it did not fix the problem.  I have a second installation of un activated and un packed FSX in a different folder that I use for "spare parts"  I copied and pasted the fresh EFFECTS folder in to my primary FSX and it fixed the problem.
