Iceland Demo problems

Recommended Posts

Hello to you all,

 

Today I installed the Iceland Demo and was really looking forward to see it in action.

 

Unfortunately things aren't working out for me as they should be.

 

First of all, BIKF (Keflavik Airport) is not displayed correctly. The runways and taxiways are cutting through the terrain.

I did have an issue with this airport as well before installing the demo, the runway slightly disappeared under the terrain. Also, all the lights are floating.

 

It seems like it's only this airport that's giving me problems. I tried Reykjavik Airport and there everything was fine.

Secondly, I don't think the demo is actually active.
The textures still look like the stock ones. I tested this by changing the time to dusk/night and there were no 3D lights or whatsoever. 

 

I really want to tryout this demo so any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks!

- Toma

Unfortunately I can't access that tool, I don't have any other Orbx product.

Yes, that's correct. I posted it here as well because I thought it would get more attention. 

I know it's only a demo (and freeware) but how can I judge something correctly if it isn't working the way it should be?

I'm sure we'll figure this out somehow.

I took a look but it looks like he got an installer, whereas I downloaded a .zip and used FTX Central v3.

I manually installed the scenery and now everything works perfectly apart from the 3D lighting. I'm not seeing it in the sim.

Another issue I'm having is that the FTX Central app is not being installed. I have to keep using the installer exe. Any solution for that?

Dont  know  what  o/s  you  got  but  if  ftx central did install correctly  it  will be  under the orbx  folder under  programs,  or   under  search option in the start menu  just  type ftx central3  ad  it  will tell you if  its  installed  and  where

I checked that and it looks like the software installed just fine. 

Also, I updated the Orbx Libraries and now the 3D lights are working.

Everything is working as it should be.

Thanks for the help, Peter.
