Missing texture required by many PrecipitFX effects

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have discovered that there is a texture file missing in my installation of PrecipitFX. I have uninstalled everything relating to VFXCentral and reinstalled VFXCentral using the newest installer. But there is stil no fsfx_PFX_lights_hallo.bmp texture in my Effects/texture folder in FSX or P3D v3.4. The installation has only added fsfx_PFX_contrail.bmp and fsfx_PFX_vaportrail.bmp to the texture folders. But as you can see, many effects like e.g. fsfx_PFX_77755038474E6775336E5A6C3231714C4F656D4E4E467A496B396568304E694C.fx are calling for the missing texture:

[ParticleAttributes.2]
Blend Mode=1
Bounce=1
Color End=00, 00, 00, 0
Color Start=00, 00, 00, 0
Extrude Heading Max=0
Extrude Length=0
Extrude Pitch Max=0
Jitter Distance=00
Jitter Time=00
TempK=107
TempRate=0
Texture=fsfx_PFX_lights_hallo.bmp
X Scale Goal=0
Y Scale Goal=0
uv1=0, 0
uv2=0, 0

I guess that I am not the only one missing that particular texture file?

Best Regards

Hi Kim,

Thanks for the report, we will have a look at this. This is most likely due to some conversion we made in the v4 upgrade process.

What specifically does this lights file do?

Has this been resolved? I'm running P3Dv3.4.22.19868

Hi,

The issue has not been resolved as it is not a priority right now (it does not break anything except for being visible in the Content Error logs).

We will fix it in the next PrecipitFX update.
