Cockpit Glass Not Visible in Some Planes

Recommended Posts

I have imported some FS9 planes and the cockpit glass does not show in some of them. Most of them do show the cockpit glass. I have been told here that the reason is that the old FS9 model file cannot be read correctly in FSX. I have installed several planes that were FSX planes like the Thunderraptor. The glass does not show in these either, although the authors pictures of it in FSX show the glass. Others have reported the lack of cockpit glass also. What is wrong? How can some see it and others don't? Thanks, regards, Bob.

Can't someone answer this question? I just installed another plane that the author has glass showing and I can't see it (B-17g). I have tried all the various filter methods, AA and no-AA. I have the aircraft view set on Ultra High.I have a XT800 Platinum card with 256M. Thanks, regards, Bob.

I hope someone can answer this. It will probably have to be one of the developers. I loaded my Lake Renegade into FSX, and two of the windows are black and the others don't show. I would really like to fix it. I also noticed it in scenery with static aircraft.
