Big fuzzy lights

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

I have big fuzzy lights on triple monitor setup. Lights are fine if run FSX on one monitor but across three either full screen or expanded windowed view lights are too big.

I used to be able to fix it applying TripleHead2Go lights in REX 4 texture direct, but after recent FSX re-installation this trick does not work anymore. 

I found this advice but it does not work for some reason, may be bc I have Steam, not sure. 

 

[Display]
.....
//RUNWAY_LIGHTS_APPROACH_SCALAR=0.5
//RUNWAY_LIGHTS_STROBE_SCALAR=0.5
//RUNWAY_LIGHTS_SURFACE_SCALAR=0.7
RUNWAY_LIGHTS_VASI_SCALAR=0.6 

 

Thx for looking.

The offending file is halo.bmp

For triple-monitor systems you need to use a modified halo.bmp to prevent overly-large lights. Do a search in the library or google it and you should find a link to the necessary halo.bmp file.

OK, thanks. 

Interesting. Selecting smaller size lights in REX4 texture direct used to work, not sure why it does not work anymore.

Fixed.

 

Had to reinstall REX4 lights few more times and it solved the problem. 

Thx

The problem with the REX lights is that they are not aligned the same as the default lights. This causes the ai aircraft landing lights to look awful.

 

I hope that REX will recognize this problem and fix it.

Good to know that. I may ask REX what they think about it.

Thanks

Dave. 

Dare to ask how did you come up with such conclusion? Looks like REX disagree with it. I asked them if they would take a look into it and they said how was this issue discovered?

 

Thx

I have REX Texture Direct, and every time I have installed their airport lights I've had problems with the ai aircraft landing lights, as well as some of my aircrafts' lights.  AI aircraft use the halo.bmp file for their lights, and because the REX halo.bmp modifications and the default lights aren't aligned the same in the .bmp image, the ai aircraft landing lights look absolutely awful.

 

This has been a known issue for some time now, as a Google search will reveal.

 

I tried this and it works great, and it's free:  http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=149396

 

It's possible that REX fixed this issue since I stopped using their lights about 6 months ago.

Thanks for explanation. I have already installed REX lights though but I wonder if I want to try lights fix from the AVSIM library how will I undo REX lights now?
