My G1000 panels dim fine. (in DX12 and the brightness of the panels set to manual (Menu button on PFD).

I have set them to 100% manual and then change brightness with the overhead switch.

Are your panels dimming or just the buttons? Because for me, only the buttons dim. The panels don't change at all. I can't use DX 12 because of the airport ground texture bug that means the airports just vanish.......That they still haven't fixed.

I have been playing around with it some more. It seems that you have to have them on manual *and* 100% and then the screens will dim and brighten with the buttons rather than the button alone. However, it really isn't by much. Honestly, I had to zoom right out to get the switch and the screens in view and then look *really* carefully to notice it happening.

The G1000 screens do dim with the overhead switch but you need to hold it down.  I know Raul mentioned he had to set the minimum brightness to 25% due to a bug where the screens will black out sometimes when lower than that.  25% may still be a bit bright during dark nights....

It's not just that you need to hold it down, that part is obvious but also you must have them set to manual and 100% on the actual units themselves or they do nothing.

re: Day/Night switch.  IRL this controls dedicated lighting for the oxygen mask microphone jack and the pressure dump switch - both of which are crucial checklist items in a number of the emergency procedures where there may be fog or smoke in the cabin. Other than that I don't believe it has any other function. Not simulated atm. 


I have a PC with stuff in it

Thanks for the clarification. I wondered why it didn't seem to do anything.
