Tinmouse: No wheels

Recommended Posts

Hi..just loaded the FSX version of the TM B737-200 into FSX SE. All is well, except there's no undercarriage. Is this a compatibility issue, has anyone else had the same?

Regards

Is this a payware aircraft?  I see that there is one in the Library.  Downloading and will try it!

The Tin Mouse 737-200 from our library looks OK on the outside but no gauges show on the panel.  README says for FS2004 only.

The later versions of the 'mouse (v1.30 and later, IIRC) were compatible with FSX boxed edition...I have no idea if they will work with FSX:SE, as I had ceased development on the TinMouse long before Steam Edition appeared on the scene.

I would hazard a guess that you are using DX10 preview...  The tinmouse  wheels are 8-bit textures which will get displayed with an inverted alpha channel in DX10 and thus be 0% visible... 

If you can locate the wheel texture  (its very obvious in the texture directory as bitmaps appear as picture icons) and convert to DXT1 with ImageTool or DXTBmp then they will appear ok.  (or just switch to DX9 of course). 

If you have my DX10 Fixer then the 8Bit Fix in the Misc dialog will correct this although its better to convert the underlying texture.

Hi Steve...

You're spot on. I have your DX 10 Fixer installed and an excellent addition it is too. Did as advised and it works. Thanks for your time, really appreciated.

The panel does work in FSX:SE.
