PMDG 747 light problem

Postby redsonssi » Thu Apr 02, 2020 12:28 pm

P3D updated from v4.4 to v4.5 caused problems with PMDG 747.
PMDG 747 logo light and wing light dimmed after update to v4.5
I asked the PMDG.
PMDG found out that it's a platform problem, so they can't do anything about it, and it needs to be solved by Locked Martin.
I don't know how to attach a photo, so I hope you compare it with a YouTube video.

This is a video of v4.4 PMDG 747 Logo Light and Wing Light.
Please check the 6 minutes and 10 seconds.

https://youtu.be/6O0GVQM2buA
This is a v4.5 PMDG 747.
Please check the 2 minutes and 5 seconds
If you compare the two video, you can see that the logo light is dimmer in the v4.5 version than in v4.4.

I would appreciate it if you could check this and think about the update.

How to post a screenshot (by Kayla):
viewtopic.php?f=6313&t=122277

I checked the PMDG forum but did not see your post.
Do you have a topic title I could look for on the PMDG forum?

I took a look at the PMDG747 lights on my setup and the lights look ok (screenshot).
But note: I seldom go outside the VC cockpit.

I inquired by ticket, not by forum.
PMDG logo light is noticeably dimmed. If you check the previous version of v4.5, there is a big difference.

This is a picture before v4.5.
There's definitely a difference in brightness.

I had a look at the iFly 737 for P3Dv4.5.
Looks ok to me.

Note:
Developers can work directly with P3D.

Only PMDG 747 seems to have a problem.
PMDG said it was not something they could do.
This is the PMDG's answer.

"Thank you. As per the emails back then, I had said that I would discuss it with the team to check IF there is anything we can fix from our side.

There is nothing we can do as this is platform related and only LM can make the changes."

Only PMDG 747 seems to have a problem.
If PMDG wants to change the way they use P3D lighting in designing their aircraft then PMDG can contact LM.
Developers do this all the time.

For me it all looks OK.
I fly aircraft from the VC cockpit.
The only time I go to the outside view is during testing like now in the forum.
