    Landing lights

    Hi,

    I am struggling with the landing and taxi lights,I can't get them to show on the runway. I tried with the pmdg 737, default planes but no luck.
    If I check the aircraft outside, they do light up.

    I think I had them working before but where have they gone ...

    Is this FSX or FS9?

    Gooday Marnix, I have just noticed the same problem, and I suspect it was after I put the following into the config file that perhaps altered it :
    RUNWAY_LIGHTS_SURFACE_SCALAR=.5 //scales edge,center,end,touchdown,runways
    RUNWAY_LIGHTS_VASI_SCALAR=.5 //scales VASI lights)
    RUNWAY_LIGHTS_APPROACH_SCALAR=0.5 //scales approach light bars
    RUNWAY_LIGHTS_STROBE_SCALAR=.5 //scales RAILs and ODALs)

    This is of course, to reduce the runway lighting.
    Regards..............Brian W.

    Thumbs up

    I got them back OK.............When you go to restart your FS9 hold down the Ctrl and shift keys while it loads and you will get a new cfg file, and I then re-entered the Dispay lines as above and it seems to have cured the problem, but do not as yet know why !!

    I found this excellent file on AVSIM quite awhile ago that has greatly enhanced the viewing of the landing light environment. Attached is a before and after picture. I will upload that file to the library today.
