The default FSX ship that sails around the Niagara River below Niagara Falls has a wake that goes straight up into the air.  Is there a fix for that?

I have Nielsen's World Wide Shipping that has fixes for his ships that did that in FSX.  But this is a default ship (I think) that just makes circles below the falls.

It's caused by a faulty effects file, possibly corrupted.  I wonder if  this file from the Library would fix that?

gauges_recovery_fsx.zip  This is  normally used to fix black contrails and other corrupted effects.

I downloaded and ran the recover program Charlie but that didn't work.  Thanks anyway.

Bummer!  I think the offending effect is called fx_wake_1.  Have you looked through your Simobjects/boats to figure out exactly which boat/ferry it is?  Have you seen any other boat or ship with the vertical wake?

It's the only one I have come across that has the vertical wake.  But I've not been seeking any out.  It's a default ship I think since it's only around Niagara Falls.  None of the other default ships or boats have them.
