    pmdg 737 night lighting

    I have the pmdg 737-800/900 panels on 3 monitors plus 1 overhead monitor and projector for the outside view.The centre monitor has the mcp and various other instruments repositioned via the panel cfg,it all works well.

    The problem is when I switch on the panel lights at night via the o/head panel I get a double image of the mcp etc. I assume ??.. I need to alter a Night textures panel cfg to match the normal/daylight one,does that sound about right ??,if so where would I find the night texture panel cfg,I've looked in the usual places to no avail.

    I'm just wildly guessing what the problem is so any help would be most welcome.


    regards Jim

    Hey Jim,

    I have the same problem. Could you describe a bit more in detail what you commented out and where....?

    i have also been trying to solve this for some time.

    Thanks

    Re: pmdg 737 night lighting

    Hi Jeroen all I did was go into the 737 panel.cfg i.e fs9/aircraft/pmdg737-800/panel /window01/PMDG_MAIN_PANEL/ go to 1st entry i.e guage00=PMDG_737NG_Main!MainBacklight,0,0,1280,960,MAIN ,and add the usual // before the word 'guage'.I'm not sure if this is your problem but it fixed mine.


    regards Jim
