effects on 747 do not work

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I bought and installed immersion package for PMDG 747. All seems to be inslaled well. Independent immersion manager works, however, effects (lights and others) are not activated. Green buttons on left side of immersion manager window stay inactivated. Only what I can do is to activate it blue - preview - then it works. However, once I return back to sim it is again unactivated...I cannot make it working…..

Any idea what can be wrong ?

many thanks !

JM

Have you activated the add-on when launching the simulator?

Have you moved your Documents folder from its original location?

Hi, yes I have activated add-on when launching add-on.

My Documents folder is in original location. I have not changed anything during or after installation.

Many thanks

to add to all this, green button is activated for engine smoke only (even it is night, all lights are switched on, but immersion manager not activated for lights and other effects). As said before I can activate it and see the effect but only as a preview (blue dot button).

Any idea what is wrong ?

Cannot be a problem that in the same time I have activated PrecifitFX ?

otherwise I cannot find the obstacle.

automatically updated, at the end the alert sying something like - problem with authentication , do you want to contact supplier ?.

I pressed OK, and then Oldprop website is opened.

Then I tried as usually . starting P3d, window asking me if I want to start VFX central, I pressed yes, then window asking me if I want to initiate immersion manager, I pressed yes.

Then all is the same. Immersion manager is activated (once I choose B744), if I open immersion manager window I can see only left green dot next to engine smoke but not next to all other effects.

I can temporarily activate through preview... blue dot...….

I need the exact error message you are getting, not approximations of messages. I also need to know if you logged into a different account in VFXCentral throughout the process and if you tried to uninstall/reinstall.

What weather conditions and time of day have you tried?

Can you post screenshots of the effects not working with the environment?
