Re: SimConnect_Text Dialog sizing in P3D 3.2 (Scaleform)

The menu dailog for AICarriers displays 10 items as standard, without having to resize the window, so it must be possible.

Annoyingly, you can't select line 10 using the keyboard though, and have to use the mouse!

Re: A detailed question for everyone that's able to "manually" install aircraft

You don't need the [Trusted] section at all in P3d. LM removed the need to "trust" gauges & dll's.
As for the 767 & Shuttle, I own the 767 but haven't tried it in P3d, so can't help there.

Re: P3D3.1 Activations

Is the activation count reset if you only uninstall the client, or do you need to uninstall the whole setup?

Re: V3 crash when trying to save flight

That what I did, then added them back a batch at a time & tested. Took quite a while to narrow it down!

Re: V3 crash when trying to save flight

I had this also. It turned out to be a corrupt entry in the aircraft.cfg one of my AI aircraft. The aircraft in question wasn't even used in any flightplans, but once the entry was corrected, I could save and load flights.

Re: Weird startup and menu issues

I also had the same issue with the scenario load/save buttons on the startup screen. After much investigation it turned out to be a corrupt entry in the aircraft.cfg of one of my add-on AI aircraft. Quite why that would cause the problem, I have no idea, but once I rectified the entry it's been fine...

Re: Refresh aircraft after testing

There is a "Reload User Object" command, but it doesn't have a key command assigned by default.

Could be. It does make sense if the env map isn't getting loaded.

@jostytosy: you're welcome to use my images, but be aware they are using a custom envmap, not the default one.

I've been looking some more into this. I uninstalled P3d & then reinstalled a fresh copy of 2.5 (no hotfixes). The only addition was my "chrome balls" test model. Booted the sim, F22 @ Langley(?). All good. Swapped to "chrome balls". 3 balls showing reflections as they should. Went into the menu...

I've been looking at this, after finding some aircraft that show a shiny / chrome finish in FSX but are dull in P3d I've knocked up a model with 4 spheres, all with basically the same material settings with a couple of differences. Here's how it looks in FSX & P3dv2.4: <img src="http://daveg.cbf...

Hi there, In the Aircraft Configuration Files section of the on-line SDK it lists 13 different types of light that can be defined in the aircraft.cfg. FSX had only 10, the additional ones here being 11:General, 12:Headlight, and 13:Brake. I can't find any way to control these additional lights, eith...

Will the update keep the reduced sized particle effects for lights etc? I've been rescaling various 3rd party fx files as the need arises (easy enough to do, but a bit repetitive!) but if the shaders revert to the old size I'll hold off doing any more.

Looks like the same issue I reported here:[url] http://www.prepar3d.com/forum-5/?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=8628[/url]

although it was fine in 2.3 for me, only 2.4 was affected.
