  1. I've looked through the postings on this forum going back maybe 7 or 8 pages and have seen nothing related to this problem and its (hopeful) fix, so I'm giving this question a try. I have an aircraft I've copied over from FS9 to FSX and following this move I've noted the aircraft's cockpit windows are greyed out when viewed from the outside. From the inside out everything is normal as re: views. I'm not sure where the issue lies with this matter except the textures involved are in .bmp format and there may be something involving the alpha channel in the texture that is not agreeing with the FSX format. Is there a workaround for this greying-out issue?
  2. I purchased this addon (boy I've been spending some money lately even with MS2020 looming LOL) just a few hours ago. I put it through its paces online at Pilot Edge, mostly doing some "first flight" work (something the test pilots at Cirrus, when I was in Duluth, would do with the first plane out of the shop - fly patterns, make sure avionics work, flight controls, power settings etc etc). Then I took her up to cruise altitude for some more airwork, checked out the included JPI engine monitor gauge (a nice piece of avionics!), worked the AP and Garmin G5 glass a little bit. After an hour or two I can say this is a lovely addon. It seriously reminds me of the old RV7/A for FSX by Danny (I think that was his name - plane still works today in P3D with a fabulous mod by @Bert Pieke ). Anyway if you love GA or even are considering it for XP, this could be your first GA purchase. There is one issue with the autopilot which I'm confident the developer will resolve (or it may be due to my XP install not sure yet) and a few minor issues which I've already posted at the dev's forum. Let's see, the addon has A LOT of configuration options....from instrument cluster, to prop type, engine type, loadout (that sounds like weapons lol, I mean a loading screen for W+B). I decided on the 260hp fuel injected engine with 2 bladed prop (for fastest cruise). I also selected the Garmin G5 instruments along with default Laminar GNS530/430. I plan to add the RealityXP GNS530/430W with crossfill soon (maybe someone will beat me to it). Addon does not include options for GTN750 or 650 but I asked at the devs forum.... who knows... Mentioned above there is a JPI engine monitor that's actually modeled pretty well...lots of functions work on it from what I can tell (though I need a manual to really understand it). I did a lot of hand flying first off....wow I love it...controls are super responsive...I believe true to an RV (never flown one) - wings are short so I imagine it could roll pretty quickly and it does so in the sim. I was fairly easy to trim out too. Flying the pattern one can easily do 140 kias or slow it way up to around 100 kias. I like to fly fast but it's very very simple to get the plane slowed down for landing. On one of my shots at the bottom you can see I was far too high on final landing KSNA, but once you level off, put the speed into the white arc, drop all the flaps, it will easily descend and slow to the threshold. I enjoy aircraft that can get down quickly if need be. Up at altitude I was cruising somewhere between 165-175 ktas at 8500, I did about 100 LOP not positive what settings I should be using (maybe I'll look at the manual more). Sounds - seem very well done. In cockpit you can don a headset and it makes most of the engine noise go away. I love when devs add that feature. External and internal seems fine to me. I didn't test different engine and prop configs yet so I'm unsure if the sounds change. Lighting is your usual setup....beacon/strobes/taxi/LL/nav - all working fine. Interior looks pretty nice with dimmable gauge backlighting and avionics backlighting. There might be a dome/cabin light but I haven't looked hard enough for it yet. Modelling appears very well done inside and out. There are some other liveries included and a few more in a free download at The Org. I picked the "just out of the garage" look haha as you can see below XP does a fairly nice job of showing off PBR and lighting. I used to fly this same sort of livery with Danny's RV7A. I had always hoped he would do a P3D native version (or that A2A would). But it's ok, we now have this beauty in XP! Hopefully dev can look into the AP (a few users have now reported something so probably not on my end). And I would definitely place this addon on your buy now list!

  3. Glass display panels in cockpit go black after a while. Using P3D, have latest GeForce drivers installed. Does anybody know why this is happening?
  4. Hi all, The windows of my POSKY 777 VC's is no longer transparent. The glass is colored blue and I can't see through it. I used to have this working so I believe this could be because I recently switched to DX10. I'm using DX10SceneryFixer. I tried Googling this issue but no real matches. Does this sound familiar/anyone have a suggestion to fix it? Pity not to use these beautiful addon aircraft anymore! Thanks in advance for your help!
  5. I've had the PMDG 747X for ages now and only recently have I found this problem, ONLY with non-official PMDG addon liverys.The exterior of the aircraft has a shiny or reflective coat to it which makes the livery look like a glass aircraft. The engines, tail and wings are fine, just the fuesalage & gear. Also the VC textures have gone, leading to a black VC. I've downloaded half a dozen BA liverys and they all do the same thing. All textures have the correct files & CFG is fine on all. Seems to be bug in the system only with non-pmdg liverys. Have scanned the internet and reinstalled. Help would be amazing!
