partial panel backlighting drop out mid flight

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

Have recently installed the B738 in my P3DV4.1 and having some texture issues at night time.

The install was as administrator and the aircraft flies alright but at nightime, the the backlighting of the yaw damper, flaps indicator, rmi and crt controllers on the pilots side stop working mid flight.  The yaw damper, flaps indicator, rmi are just very dark unreadable areas on the panel and the CRT controls have no baclighting either but only on the captains side.

Should i uninstall and try again or has anyone else seen this behaviour before?

Regards

Tim Carter

Tim,

This was a known issue in 4.1 and was due to a LM bug. This has been fixed in 4.2

If you wish to keep your current 4.1 version, there is a workaround. As soon as the lights disappear go to P3D graphics settings and switch that mip-map-panel-whatever option on and off. Lights will reappear and keep working.
