After new installer: Cabin Windows are not transparent!

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I downloaded the new installers for my 777LR and 777-300ER and uninstalled the previous versions completely. After that installed both products with the new installers. I´ve got non transparent windows on both products now. I can´t see through the windows, can´t see the cabin interior etc. I thought that something is wrong with my liveries but the problem is still there with the default PMDG livery. 

 

Can someone help me? Is there a way to fix this Problem?

Hi. 

 

FSX. First i thought that the alphachanel of my livieries are broken. I checked this with photoshop and its fine. Even the default PMDG livery has this problem. 

Maurice,

 

Thanks...  Looking into it.

 

Thank you Robert ;-).

Maurice,

 

No- Jason thinks it is something broken in the export.  He is looking into it and we will update again once he ascertains a fix.

Thank you! I´m sure you´ll find the fix for this. But still thank you for updating the T7. It´s my favourite aircraft and i was stunned by this bird when i saw an emirates 777-300ER at the airport of Dusseldorf. These engines  are outstanding :-o.

Robert, are there any news about some fixes for this issue? I uninstalled both products (777LR and 77W) completely, so i can install the new, fixed installer.

Maurice-

 

Once Jason sorts out why the exporter isn't working as expected, we will update you.  It doesn't impact anything other than the visibility of the cabin windows...  the rest of the airplane works just fine.

Yes. I´m sure that this bird works fine systemwise. And the window issue isn´t an "big" Problem but i want to enjoy the outsiteview of your stunning work while i´m at cruise FL from time to time. And sadly i have to focus my view on the windows now, because i know the "window issue" :-D. It´s a bad personal character trait of mine for focus on existing problems which affect the external view. You shouldn´t come with me if i wanna buy a new car, for example: You wouldn´t have the nerves for this  :Silly:  :smile: .

 

I´m sure you´ll find a solution soon. The Fact that most of the costumers doesn´t even noticed this "issue" shows me that it´s not a thing most people focuses on.

I can report that it's also present in FSX:SE.

Tried the default paints as well as ones I've painted and they exhibit the same behavior.

Yes. This was the first step i did, too. I first thought that my liveries has had broken alpha channels but after i saw that the default PMDG liveries has the same issue, i was sure that there could be a problem with the update. I´m sure PMDG will fix this soon.

True Chris, but it would be nice to have the few observation windows transparent so we can check our wings for ice. :smile:

I'll just fly freighters until they do, hehe.

The update sure enough reduces the VAS load, (under 3G at KLAX now....) great job PMDG!

Ok. I hope that the VAS reduction is not caused by the untransparent windows and disappear if they fix the windows...hehe...little joke. They´ll fix this problem soon, i´m sure.

Yes. But it seems that you don´t have transparent CABIN windows on the site of the aircraft, too. I can´t see cabin lights in the outside view etc. This is a problem PMDG will fix

When a fix is worked out, I hope it will be made available as a simple download of a few replacement files that can be downloaded either directly from precisionmanuals.com or through the O.C.  I've already installed the latest update twice.  For me this involves putting modifications into the panel.cfg and aircraft.cfg files each time, as they are overwritten by a new install.  (My modifications involve resizing the left CDU to make it more readable, adding entries to allow Function keys to control various VC windows, and adding a third party free radar gauge to the panel).

 

Thanks very much, and thanks again for this excellent update!

 I and my friend uninstalled the 777 by the book-everything re. 777 deleted.

We both used the new installer and all works correctly including windows!

We both use FSX with EFB and UK scenery but no other add on.

does that point to other addons?

Hello.

 

Not sure there is any use trying what Carlan2uk suggested as I myself did a total/complete clean installation with latest file plus I don't have any third party software apart from PMDG B777 and ASN. Even after the total clean (everything deleted) reinstall I don't have transparent cabin windows.

 

Could it be a graphics card issue? I use a GTX680 - what do you guys use? Wondering maybe that is the common link? I must admit I know nothing about programming :(

 

Hope this is sorted out sooner then later by PMDG - but at least the aircraft is useable and and it's only a visiual issue.

 

regards

Same problem here. Additionally I have another problem, when I select the Air Conditioning or Air Start Units they don't appear on the external view, the GPUs shows normally. Anyone can confirm this? Beside these little problems the plane works just fine.

 

Sorry my bad english.

Hi, David,

 

Just to help clarify things, what are the date and time of the 200LR installation file you used? There are at least two,

both installing version 7025. This might help clear things up a bit.

 

Haven't had a chance to check the A/C or Air Start units yet.

I have the same issue with the cabin windows as well. Also a very peculiar thing occurred when uninstalling using the control panel. I noticed the 777-300ER expansion was not listed in the list of programs but the base pack was. Could this possibly have corrupted the subsequent installation?

Hi. 

 

I´m pretty sure that this problem has nothing to do with our graphics card. I´m using an ASUS GTX780 btw. But PMDG confirmed that this issue is caused by the isntaller/ software. I´m sure they will find a fix for this but it seems that its not really easy, because it takes some time.
