Transparency and CTD

Recommended Posts

Hi all,this is happening in FS9 and not in FSX.The XML line from one of my gauges,can cause a CTD, especially if the graphics card is by ATIInterestingly, the linefrom the default GPS500 gauge does not cause a problem.Any ideas?cheers,Nick

Nick, I reported on this issue over a year ago now. I had to abandon the use of the opaque dimming masks for just that reason.Well, actually, I supplied two versions of the gauge: one with and another without, and left the customer to make the swap if they had problems with transparency... :-eek I even wrote to Susan Ashlock directly and she didn't have a clue either... *:-*

Thanks Bill. Although this appears not to be a problem in FSX, so maybe your words did not fall on stoney ground after all. This mainly happens with ATI cards, not sure if you can read anything from this fact.cheers,nick

>Hi Bill, do you agree with my experience that this does not>happen in FSX?So far I've had no reports of problems using it... I've got a beta version of the Citation II with a new version of the SN3308 w/ GPS Map and flightplan display at the moment, with no reported errors so far!
