Re: Saitek Pro Flight Yoke Hat Switch Only Works Pushing Forward in Virtual Cockpit View.

Hi Pat,

Do you notice this with all vehicles? Does the hat work in other views (i.e. Spot or Locked Spot)? Have you tried resetting your controls to default from the Controls UI?

Thanks!

Re: How to set alpha texture for a model in 3ds max?

Hi han.rohana,

Have you tried setting the "Blend Diffuse by Diffuse Alpha" check box? The Learning Center has several material/texture samples in the "Modeling Materials" article.

Thanks.

Re: DLL not found

Hi simskunkworks, Those modules are included with the latest Content installer. If you did a Client only update from v4.0 to v4.2 those would not be included. You can download the Content Individual Components from the Purchased Downloads Page: Install_Content.msi cont1.cab cont2.cab Hope this helps!

Re: radar fields of view

Hi jeladi, Prepar3D does not currently natively render EE PDU's, however the PDK comes with an IObjectRenderer service that allows for primitive drawing in the 3D world (spheres, cylinders, boxes, etc). It should be possible to write a plugin to draw the radar fields if you are able to obtain the in...

Re: Entity State PDU question

Hello, Prepar3D PDU's are currently targeting version 6 in the header, however older versions should still work.
