Shortly after takeoff at about 1000 feet my windshield turned blue and I couldn't see. The side windows are clear. This is not clouds or fog. Anybody know what could cause this? I have flown this plane a lot and this is the first time for this. DonIt just did it againgateway--dual processor pent 4 windows xp professional media edition 2.5 gig memory nvidea 6200 turbo cache

I have had this happen with some aircraft when it is raining and I have SP2 installed.

I sure thought that this plane was fsx compatible when I bought it. So you say there is a fix? I hope so. I am sure this was billed as a fsx plane by flight 1. If it isn't then I guess I have a refund coming. Thanks for your help Don

>Yes thanks to maddog I found it and installed. It is fixed. >Thank you very much. DonThe "fix" from Flight1 simply disables VC Rain entirely by using a set of transparent bitmaps...The real "fix" is found here at avsim in the little file in the Library cleverly disguised as "vcrain.zip"... ;)http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=57104

Or was that the 2D cockpit?

I tried it, and it works."Acually, the download says it is for fs9"It maybe an FS9 mod, but you are trying to fix an FS9 ported AC. I made backup copies of the 32 texture files which the package replaces just in case I want to change them back."What will happen if I put the avsim fix on top of the flight 1 fix?"I don't think it will matter. Just make backup copies of the VCRainMoving00xx and VCRainStopped00xx texture files and copy the replacement ones into your FSX Texture folder.I tested both FSX default AC and FS9 ported AC, and there doesn't seem to be any conflict. It seems that the FSX default AC don't use these textures anyway.Mike.

"...it says the plane is for fsx and says nothing about being ported fromfs9."Unfortunately most of them are. In fact my best 6 payware FSX AC are all ported from FS9, very successfully I might add, so I have no complaints.Mike.

Isn't that a misrepresentation? IMO it should be stated as such, then it would be our decision whether we wanted to purchase or not. Don:-hmmm
