Kirk Olsson's F-16D Strobes?

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the beautiful Kirk Olsson F-16D. The strobe switch will not stay engaged. It pops off when engaged. The strobes don't work. I looked at the lights section of the aircraft.cfg which is posted below. [LIGHTS]//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landinglight.7=3, 12.2, 2.48, -1.4, fx_knavgre ,light.5=3, 12.2, -2.48, -1.4, fx_knavred ,light.6=3, -5.9, 16.7, 0.7, fx_knavgre light.4=3, -5.9, -16.7, 0.7, fx_knavred light.2=3, 12.2, 2.48, -1.4, fx_kbeacongreen ,light.1=3, 12.2, -2.48, -1.4, fx_kbeaconred ,light.8=5, 15.0, 1.9, -7.9, fx_kLVIPER ,light.10=5, 25.0, 1.9, -5.9, fx_kLVIPER ,light.11=4, -12.6, 3.4, 1.1, fx_knavwhi ,light.12=4, -12.6, -3.4, 1.1, fx_knavwhi ,light.13=4, -14.6, -0.6, 3.1, fx_kLVIPER ,light.14=4, -14.6, 5.6, 3.1, fx_kLviper ,light.3=1, -20.217, 0.0, 11.987, fx_kVbeacon ,light.15= 4, 15.56, 0.00, 3.5, fx_kvclight ,light.16=3, -19.1, 0.0, 3.3, fx_kbeaconwhite ,light.19=4, 17.0, 2.9, -5.9, fx_kLVIPER ,light.=20=4, 17.0, 2.9, -5.9, fx_kLVIPER light.xx=2, -18.2, 0.0, 0.3, fx_f1light.fxlight.9=2, -18.2, 0.0, 0.3, fx_f1light.fxlight.18=2, -20.8, 0.0, 0.3, fx_f1light.fxlight.22=2, -23.2, 0.0, 0.3, fx_f1light.fxlight.23=2, -25.2, 0.0, 0.3, fx_f1light.fxlight.17= 4, 9.5, 0.00, 3.5, fx_kvclight ,Some of the effects have commas after them and some don't. Why?The lines :light.=20=4, 17.0, 2.9, -5.9, fx_kLVIPER andlight.xx=2, -18.2, 0.0, 0.3, fx_f1light.fxdo not seem right.Can someone help me fix the problem. Kirk did not leave any entry for a contact that I could find. Thanks, best regards, Bob.

Another thing I noted was that the beacon on the top of the rudder fin does not light. There is no beacon switch. I added one and now the beacon lights. Since my panel is getting crowded now can I just change the type for light.3=1 to light.3= either 2 or 3 to add it to the strobes or navigation lights, assuming I can get the strobes to work. Then I can delete the switch. Thanks, regards, Bob.

Bob,There are a maximum of 19 lights - 0 thru 18. A comma is required after an effect.Regards,Roman

Hi Roman. Do you have a recommendation as to how to fix it? I noticed one said kLviper and all the others are kLViper. Is it case sensitive? The effect is kLVIPER in the Effects folder. Should I delete the extras after 18? What about the one with the xx? If possible can you cut and paste your recommendation from above in your answer. Will the corections allow the strobe light switch to stay engaged? I appreciate the help. Thanks and best regards, Bob.
