Light Effects missing - Please help!

Recommended Posts

Hi,We are about to release a new scenery, CYAM (Sault Ste. Marie) and I'm doing up a small AI package. I have downloaded a Piper Seminole, which was designed for FS2002 and I'm using it in FS2004.The problem is that none of the lights work. I looked at the aircraft.cfg and the effects called are all the same ones one regularly sees in FS2004.Could anyone help me out?Thanks,AdamEDIT - I have found and installed a 2004 version of the plane - same lighting problem.

Well, sorry to say but good luck getting an aircraft that is two versions ago to work.You are correct, the fx files are not your problem. When you say "the lights don't work" what you mean is that you can't turn them on with the switches you have tried. Press "L", and see if all the lights come on. If they do, then the problem is the gauge switches that are supposed to turn them on.Good luck.

He said he found and installed an "FS2004" version but still has the same problem. He's wanting to use is as an AI a/c though...

I'm confused about what he's trying to do. Maybe he's trying to do lights with an AI aircraft? Not sure how to help him Bill, maybe you know how.
