DX10 fixer FSX and PAPI lights

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I want to buy Steve's DX10 fixer for FSX:SE but I'm worried that it wont fix what i want it to...

When using Direct X 10 my payware and freeware scenery's have a problem... The PAPI lights to the left of the runway are way to big and bright

- sorry about quality, i had to take the picture on my phone.

My question is, Will the DX10 fixer fix this issue with Direct X 10 and fix the PAPI lights so the PAPI lights are small and normal like with DX9?

I don't want to buy it if it doesn't fix this as this is the only issue I have.

 

Thank you,

Sam

Err.. WELCOME SAM! (1st post).

All I can see is a large yellow rectangle and not 4 lights. What do they look like on approach?

Without knowing which payware airports its rather difficult to comment.

The problem is either a missing texture - in which case you probably wont see anything at all in DX9  or a transparency issue with a legacy scenery which the fixer will probably fix.

Hi Steve,

thank you for your reply... 

the PAPI lights are like this with every airport with default or payware scenery. 

Mice tried reinstalling the sceneries and reloading the sim for default sceneries but it is still there. 

In this example, it is UK2000 EGSS Stansted. But again, it's with every airport. 

 

Thank You!

Sam

Hello thank you for your reply. 

On approach even with 2 white and 2 red, the PAPI lights are way to bright and big with preview DX10 enabled in FSX setting... They are "blinding" and can't see the runway by only the PAPI lights in good visibility 

 

Thank You!

I would suspect that you have a faulty halo.bmp .  Search for and download Mike Swannick's light package
