    Aicraft not showing in preview window

    Question:

    The other day I was placing in several new files (some new scenery, the landing light file from here, and some .xmls for SYS software) and now I no longer have my aircraft showing up in the preview window of FS9. It's almost like the screen hasnt finished refreshing. All the menue options are there, it's just not showing the aircraft that you've chosen in the Aircraft tab. It's not an issue messing up the sim, other than you cant see the plane and it's aggravating.

    Any ideas?

    Boeing Hi - solution!

    The only thing i can suggest is that it may be the recent downloads and addons that you installed that may have taken an effect. I havn't had any problems and i have half a dozen addons running.

    I would try removing the recent software then try flight sim and then it may work - at least then you know what the problem is

    Eric,

    Are you an NVidia user? Have you changed your AA settings or upgraded your drivers?

    On NVidea graphics cards with the new drivers, if you set AA at anything over 4X...... this happens. No solution seems to be anywhere on the web...and people are ticked at NVidia for lack of support for fs2004.

    Other than that....... don't know.

    best,

    ....................john

    John,

    Thanks. I will try this at home tonight. I DID do this, and I will be sure to check. However, like I said- it doesnt affect anything else and Im going to leave it this way if the sim looks better. I was just wondering what could have caused it. I will report back the results!

    THANKS!
