Help with Texture (?) fix.

Recommended Posts

I recently added an add-on aircraft file and found the representation of things like smoke from industrial smoke stacks, ship wakes, aircraft engine exhaust and the like is not opaque black rather than the normal whitish color.

Can someone tells me which file(s) might be involved and how I might return it to the proper state?

Thanks for your help...

Are you saying that normal looking white smoke and exhausts are black?  If so, you have corrupted effects files.  Look for this file in the AVSIM Library (Library is a separate login) gauges_recovery_fsx.zip.  Download this and run it.  I'm assuming you are using FSX in the disc version and not FSX-SE?

It is possible that the add-on aircraft came with it's own smoke effects file and was corrupt or incorrect for FSX.

If you add the line

ShowMissingTextureAlert=1

to the Scenery section of your fsx.cfg then fsx will show  a popup window with the name of every missing texture.

remove the line to turn this off.
