    It is good to know that I am not the only one "Not" seeing things correctly. Terry
  2. Visual Glideslopes

    I have tried multiple airports with various aircraft and have not had any luck with seeing red. Only white. The red ed of runway lights show up well so I know my eyeball can still see red. From my Air Force flight sim days, I learned that you might fix one problem and in the process unintentionally create many more. I am using stock everything, the way X-plane 11 is sent out to us. No add-on anything. Maybe that is the problem? Thanks for all of the responses to this thread. Terry

    The drivers are the NVIDIA 391.01 that just came out. Would not work on the last several versions either. No plug ins or reshaders, only what the stock X-plane 11 and current versions/betas include. Will see if I can take a picture to post Terry
  4. Visual Glideslopes

    i7 4790 16 Gb ram GTX 980 which gives me 60 plus FPS with zero wx turned on and depending on the scenery detail mid 30's. I am displaying all of this on a 40 inch Samsung 1080p TV. Don't believe the hardware is the problem. I turned on the "Windshield Effects" box and the runway lead-in lights started sequencing but still no VASI or PAPI lights working other than them just glowing "White" no matter what elevation you are to the end of the runway. I thought the windshield effects only made the rain drops eat up more of your computing power. With hundreds of real world flying hours and thousands more in military and civilian flight sims, I guess I can fly a visual approach without looking at a VASI or PAPI. I only wish I can figure out why mine are not working as they are suppose to. Terry Special note: Even the alternating red/white lights which denote the last 2000 feet and finally the all red 1000 feet remaining have and are still working correctly so it is not a "Seeing Red" problem.

    It never worked and I have the latest beta VR5.
  6. Visual Glideslopes

    After flying both day and night approaches to both runways at YMHB, neither displayed on my copy of X-plane 11.20 with the corrected indications found in the Airman Information Manual (AIM) dated 10-12-17 page 2-1-4 fig 2-1-5. While my eyesight is not good any more, my color vision is still good. I get no red lights when going below the glide path. Lights remain white only. That leads me back to my original question of is there some box that needs to be checked or turned on that controls runway lights like the lead in /rabbits and the VASI/PAPI lights? Terry

    All airports to include KORD, KFWA.KABQ KLAX etc Yes to the HDR enabled all settings tested and no working vis slopes. Terry
  8. Does the visual glide slopes work in X-Plane 11..20VR5? I see four white only lights at the end of the runway and they never change color or do anything no matter how high/low I fly them, The runway REIL lights do blink OK if installed. Also the Rabbits (lead in lights do not sequence either. They shine but that is all. Do I have to activate something in the program to get the above light to work correctly? Anyone else experiencing this problem too? Terry
  9. All fixed, I hope. It was the anti-virus part of the Windows Defender program that thought the X-Plane program was some sort of malicious beast. It would let me run the program but not change it by saving a new situation file. As soon as I turned that switch to off in Defender, X-plane was working correctly again. Terry
  10. Pretty sure no on the virus but think the MS Defender is somehow blocking access to save the X-plane files. Terry
  11. I can load previously saved situations with no problems noted. Just cannot save a "NEW" situation in X-plane Terry
  12. I completely removed and replaced (known good copy) X-Plane 11 and it still will not let me save situations. Any ideas on what allows X-plane to save a situation file in Windows 10? Terry
  13. My X-plane 11 has just started not allowing me to save a situation prior to shutting down. The situation folder in the output folder on the desktop says it is a "READ ONLY" file (Filled in black square) Tried to remove this to a black box but the system seems to replace the read only square, thus blocking the situation from being saved. As I am writing this, I get a couple of notification messages from window 10 that windows defender has blocked access to ch1anges in x-plane. Also for the past week or so I have been getting those annoying fake messages that tells you your computer is infected and to call this 800 number to resolve it. Nothing shows up on rapid or full virus scans. Only once or twice when I used Kasper sky anti virus did I ever have this fake virus message come through. Then I change to Webroot anti virus and started getting thismore frequently.. I removed Webroot and have only been using the windows defender since and all sorts of weird stuff has been happening. This morning I had to roll back the NVIDIA drivers to the ones that were good in Dec 2017 for my GTX 980 because I could not view the Edge browser due to it being covered in dots. , My Foxfire browser was OK. Still getting message notifications that unauthorized access denied to x=plane on the desktop when I am not even trying to use I am still typing this message. Any ideas were to start on the ability to save situations in X-plane? Terry
  14. Robert, I do not remember the FPS I had at 4K but it was somewhere between 30 and 40. I do not have that TV hooked up to the computer and am using my older 40 inch Samsung which is a native 1080p. If all I was interested in was the size of the screen, I probably would have saved the money and went with another larger 1080 model. I was hoping the 4K resolution would make a significant difference in the image quality in X-plane 11. I never really got to explore this due to the font size problems (too small) Terry
  15. Then why do they fly clean (no Tank) sometimes? They do have high and low shows to work around wx but even in a D model, they should be able to fly a 20 to 30 minute show on internal fuel only. Kind of hard to believe that maintenance cannot drop the tank if it had been installed to ferry the jet to the show. What about the others, did they come with or without tanks? Was this show in England? Then they would have had tankers support across the pond. Maybe it is a inside joke the team has to get people talking about why they would fly a tank? Who knows. Terry
