Missing runway markings as dusk/night

Post by Fi5kuS » Tue Nov 04, 2014 4:57 pm

Hi! First of all - thank you for a great product.

I only have one issue: Runway markings disappear at dusk and night, probably at dawn also then. In normal daylight, everything works as normal. This is very strange. Any solution?

Im using DX10 (2.4 scenery fixer)

Here you go, they are a bit dark but theres no marking what so ever. Even the number for rnw (04L) is missing.

Do you also get this with other airports, or only EKCH?

Only EKCH. I also noticed another problem when taking these pictures. I have several white squares around the airport (see picture). Its probably something related to how scenery is loaded during dusk/night because at daylight everything is fine, including this last problem. I have provided them as links since the picture are so big. I took some new once at dusk and you can clearly see that all the ground textures are messed up.

EDIT: I tried to install it to Prepar3D. No problems with rnw or ground textures so its something in FSX.

It's a FSX DX10-related issue.
looking into it.

Thank you, considering the amount of people using DX10, I bet several must experience this. I will try to change some settings in the DX10 fixer myself, but I'll await reply here as well.

Again, thanks for looking into it.

quickly had a look at DX10 panel (v2.4).
I could get the same results by un-ticking the Legacy Shader in DX10 control panel. You can start by checking Legacy Shader option is 'ticked'.

I previously kept this box unticked because it caused problems with Aerosoft Oslo X. But If I tick the box AND move the slider all the way to the left (towards scenery), the problem is gone. So consider this one solved. Thanks for your help! :D
