Engines burn/crash animation on Posky 777 - 200

Recommended Posts

I got windows 10 (x64) with FSX SE.

I have this posky model

It has also this panel installed to get the panels working properly.

 

Plane works fine, but it has a constant animation on the engines with red sparks as if they are constantly crashing or on fire.

This shows you what I mean.

Any clues?

 

2nd question:

 

Both 2d and Vc panels work but it only gives functionality over default cockpit functions like in the default FSX aircraft.
I don't require all the other functions yet. I just returned to FSX after a while of not playing it, and I probably buy a PMDG by the time I want to incorporate FMC's into my whole simming experience.

For the moment I will survive without it.

But if there are plugins that may add FMC functionality and anything else then I'd liked to be told by someone.

 

EDIT: Prefix should be FSX - SE and not MS.
I can't edit this after posting the thread, maybe allow users to do this, thanks :=)

You didn't accidentally choose  engine fires in the "Failures" section, did you?  Might want to be sure that nothing

is checked in that section.  Did you notice that there is an FMC option in your added panel?  Does the

engine fire show on engine startup or only in flight?

I believe I have the very same model and panel. Never set the engines on fire yet though! :cool:

No engine fire set on the failure settings lol.

I found the fix for the sparks.

I had to remove opensky_spark.fx file from the "effects" folder.

Any chance you guys already did this once before?

Because I would find it odd that I need to take this step and others don't.

 

I found the fix on another forum suggesting that the sparks happen due to bad collision programming making the game think that the aircraft has crashed the ground or suffered from a tailstrike. I assure you this is not the case because it happens right after I try to taxi and sometimes even when I spawn.

No working FMC panel, but in the VC it is part of the interior, but not clickable.

None of the available 2D panels is a interactive FMC. You sure you got the same panel that I have?

If yes, I do something wrong :Tounge:

The FMC in my download, which is also your download, works and has clickable buttons.  Do you have Acceleration

or at least SP1 and SP2 installed?  I did not install the modules or waypoints from the panel download.  They are needed for the FMC.

Must have been reading the instrument panel options without my glasses or something. Or I'm still having to reaccustom to the FSX GUI since I haven't touched it for 3 years.
I forgot I could navigate all the instrument panel options within the fsx title bar = (left alt > views > instrument panel) 

The FMC panel is there, rare I couldn't find it earlier.

Oh and I have FSX SE.

I have no more questions, thanks for your help and have a nice flight :smile:

The Intergrated Simvionics Gauge (ISG) suite by Ernie Alston, available at SimMarket includes brown bezel (Boeing) gray bezel (Airbus) and no-bezel versions of a fully-functional Smiths FMC. Once you have mastered it, it's the only way to fly.

 

Best,
