PMDG Aircraft's External Shadow Problem in DX9

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

 

I'm a Simmer from the South Korea!

This is my first time to write the article in Avsim Forum. 🙂

Usually, I enjoying FSX with DX9 mode, because when I run my sim with DX10 Preview mode, I just got A LOT of problems with my FSX.(I think it's because of the absence of DX10 Fixer..)

Even though I cannot activate my DX10 Preview mode, I really want to get the 'Vivid Shadows on the Fuselage' which was enabled in DX10 Preview mode. 

 

So, To see the shadows on the Fuselage, I tweaked my 'General.fx' and 'General10.fx' in my ShadersHLSL folder which is in the FSX root folder. 

The Link below was very helpful so I refer to it a lot.(Link is about the intensity of shadows but actucally, when I apply it, I CAN SEE the shadows on the fuselage!)

 

 

It was so happy that I eventually got the shadows on the fuselage in the FSX!

However, I found a small problem with it Today. 😞 

The Problem was just like the Photos below. (Links to my private blog!)

As you can see, the shadow of all of my PMDG Aircrafts is cut-off!

In spite of it, the Default Aircraft's Shadow seems OK.

Anybody knows the Solution for this problem?

I'll wait for your help! 

 

 

Thank you so much for reading the Long article. 😉 and thanks in advance.

Also Sorry for my bad English. ^^

You are correct.  Steve's DX10 Fixer fixes most of the issues with DX10 that Microsoft could not fix because the team of developers were released by Microsoft.  So, no further development.

This is what Steve's DX10 Fixer does too.

Yes, I recommend it too. Does a lot more than fixes aircraft, - also fixes some scenery issues too. Make sure to read the very good manual. I've not used it in a long time now since I moved to P3D. I did get a lot of value from it, and Steve is very helpful on the forums.

I could not IMAGINE running FSX without FSUIPC and Steve's DX10 Fixer these days. Both very cheap for the huge benefits they provide. I use DX10Fixer before every flight to set the LOD for instance depending on the complexity of the add on aircraft I am using. For example 4.5 PMDG 8.5 FlySimWare. I know you can do that in fsx.cfg but the fixer provides am easy interface to make fast changes WITHOUT human typos crashing your sim.

Then alter on LINDA for add-on aircraft and hardware integration.

Those get configured before adding scenery and weather apps.

Note there is at least one typo in the above post. Easy to miss...in a cfg file a CTD excuse!

Jim,

 

Thank you for your reply!

Oh, I knew that the DX10 Fixer which steve made probably fix this problem. So, I already added the fixer in my shopping list! haha

However, before I bought it, I just want to know that if I can get the shadow on the fuselage through fixing the general.fx and general10.fx files.

If I can't fix this problem in myself, then I will buy the DX10 Fixer.

 

Thank you again for your answer & greetings!

Hi Jude!

 

Really appreciate with your reply! I didn't know that it's important THAT MUCH!! I'll consider the DX10 fixer for my solution then.

However, Before I apply the DX10, I just wonder that If I can get the shadow through just editing the general.fx file!

 

Thanks again for your answer!

I'll will consider the DX10 Fixer then.
