Effects dont work with 747.

Recommended Posts

Made the purchase, with everyone off parked at the gate did some test of effects thought VFX central. Planned the flight, went for pushback. Turned things, on, started moving. None of the effects work with 747. As you can tell by the screenshots, its raining and im flying through fog.

 

Tried:
Disabling and enabling effects.
Disabling and enabling detailed precipitation
Special effects are all maxed out. 

 

Note:
Eventhought I had precipitFX installed. It never worked with 747, I assumed that it was all about immersion packages (forcing us to buy) I was wrong.

Did some more digging. Appears that the Immersion Manager randomly decided to not use effects. 

I've figured green dog means the option is active. But it doesnt seem to work, my storbes and beacon show that they are active but they are flashing just like regulars. During fog taxi, nothing else was green. Takeoff in rain and fog same story, no "green" effects.

And more ... digging. Clearly not aligned but I assume this is due to wingflex / lights being statuc. Kind of strange as on takeoffs there will be more wing flex.

Strobes are active yet you can see on the screenshot they are not working. (I am also not able to text them when they are active)

I just pushed an update to Immersion Manager. After observing the issue again, can you click 5x on the name of the aircraft at the top-left of the Manager to generate a Report file. We added a few things in there to diag the issue. 

It will be on your desktop, if you can send it to me, that would be greatly appreciated!
