  1. Hi Steve, thanks for the quick answer. And I have to apologize for bothering you. Something must have happened with my DX10SF-Installation. After a complete de- and re-installation everything works fine e. g. I have no more problems with VC shadows in the Aerosoft Airbus A318 to A321. Sorry...... Regards, Rolf
  2. Hi, up to version 2.3 I had no problems with VC shadows in the Aerosoft Airbusses. Updating to version 2.4 and now to 2.5 there are still problems: Since version 2.4 I had to change in the DEBUG section to "Shadows Version 4" to get VC shadows in the Aerosoft A318 to A321. When do think this will be fixed? Since version 2.4 and using "Shadows Version 4" I think the shadows are not so clear like in the previous versions. The border between shadow and sun is much more blurry. Regards, Rolf
  3. First I tried installing the light field at LOWW - but no change....... The same with disabling the General Shader in the DX10 Controller - no change..... Yes I am using Sweet FX So, maybe I have to live with it....... Regards, Hanse
  4. Steve, yes I did ........I really do not know what do e.g. I am able to taxi at night only with "Landing Lights" on otherwise I do not see anything. But what I recognized is that if the airplane lights directly "shine" on the blue taxiway lights they are "blooming" e. g. are exactly what is required and then they look like the ones at LOWI. Regards, Hanse
  5. I do compare the ones at LOWW with the lights at LOWI..... The difference you can see in the pictures below: LOWW - https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=FF01B36902F93518!304&authkey=!ALt3WljTNH-E3W8&v=3&ithint=photo%2c.jpg LOWI - https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=FF01B36902F93518!305&authkey=!AO-eVFoV-RkilxU&v=3&ithint=photo%2c.jpg So may question stays: Is there any way to "improve" those taxiway lights at LOWW? Regards, Hanse
  6. Hi, I do not see any "blue" lights on your screenshot at all....... but how do you manage to integrate screenshots into your message? In other forums I just can attach jpg-files and then those are displayed as part of the message. I tested Steve's new file and my problems at LOWI are now solved with that new file...... Regards, Hanse
  7. Using DX10 SF I have nearly no more (or not visible) blue lights at the taxiway boundaries (left and right) at FlyTampa's Vienna = LOWW, I tried it also setting the Legacy Shader completely to the left, but with no change. In DX9 the lights are to be seen. Is there anyway how to "improve" those lights in DX10 - because on other airports like LOWI they look great in DX10. Regards, Hanse
  8. Hi Carsten, I finally found the solution and added the VC shadows to the AXE. Please see Steves DX10 SF Manual on page 71 where it is explained how to do it. But please remember that in addition to this fix the respective option in FSX / Settings / Aircraft and "Aircraft casts shadows on itself" as well as in the DX10 SF Controller / General Shader "HD Jet Shadows" must be enabled. Regards, Hanse
  9. Steve, maybe we have a misunderstanding about the type of lights we are talking about. I was always talking about the 4 white or red lights left and right of the runway which should be on during a day approach and to be seen app. 10 NM before the runway. For LOWI on my system this is not the case. I only see those 8 lights during a day approach after reloading the scenery library. I never had any problems with these or the other LOWI runway lights during a night approach....... Regards, Hanse
  10. Rob, I am really sorry because I mixed up something. Because in this thread "DX ToolBox" was mentioned I googled it and found a software with this name...... But then I carefully read all comments on this thread again and recognized that I made big mistake. In the meantime I used Steves DX10ToolBox to enable the VC shadows in the AXE and the VC looks great. The only thing what disturbs me alittle bit is that it interfers with the aircraft lights e.g. having the lights on the "sunny" areas are "blinking"..... Regards, Hanse
  11. Rob, this is quite interesting e. g. that DX ToolBar make VC shadows work in the AXE. But could you please tell us from where to download the software and instructions you mentioned? I downloaded the software but I do not know how to handle it...... sorry. Regards, Hanse
  12. Quote: C). Attach invisible lights to the plane visible from the cockpit - such a light is included fx_dx10shield.fx - but it's very tricky to align and has to be done per aircraft. 1. As this is the case only at a few airports (and you do not know which ones when starting a flight) I think it would be much easier to "adopt" the plane than always to go to the destination airport first. In my case (e. g. LOWI) also this proposal did not work ....... 2. If setting the AI-Traffic to 100% is not suitable for a user (doing so I had no problems to see the lights at LOWI during a day approach) then I believe the only solution is to attach the lights to the plane. Could you please give us a short instruction where to save the fx_dx10shield.fx file in the aircraft folder and how to "align" it to the aircraft? Thanks.

  14. Steve, the same problem (lights ON from outside the plane but OFF from the VC) was also reported from another user in this forum http://forum.avsim.net/topic/437696-still-problems-with-runway-and-papilights/. Another thing I recognized and maybe this is related to each other: I get no VC shadows even that I ticked the option in the DX10 SF. This also was reported by another user: http://forum.avsim.net/topic/437047-cockpit-shadows-in-the-axe/ but until now no one answered his question. Regards, Hanse
  15. I have AES installed for LOWI but disabling it (as well as in the scenery library) brought no change. The issue is also not connected to Active Sky Next or Traffic X. But I now recognized something interesting which may help you to find the root-cause. If I take a view from the outside of the plane the lights are on. This is not only the case with the AXE but also with the Cessna......
