[REPORTED] Glowing pipe - graphics bug

Recommended Posts

When turning up the brightness of the instrument illumination, if you look over your left shoulder, there is a pipe behind the seat that suddenly starts glowing very brightly with reflected light. It's rather unnatural looking, as everything else in the cockpit is brightened only slightly by the instrument backlighting.

 

Anybody else encountering this? Is this a graphic bug? Most noticeable during night time flying.

You are not the only one who has noticed this. I have been recently working on a mission starting out at dawn and noticed this while testing. Didn't go away during sun-up but I still had my instrument lights on and background lights so maybe this was the cause? During the day, I notice this issue is not manifesting itself.

The problem is the alpha needs to be fixed for "F-86F_Cockpit_Texture6". This file includes the textures for the circuit breaker panels, the altimeter setting baro window text, and airspeed indicator drum (10s digits) text.

 

 

That pipe is for the canopy defrost system and it's texture runs along the left bottom of the above mentioned file and the corresponding section of the alpha is white instead of black, so the pipe "illuminates" when the cockpit instrument light rheostat is used.

 

 

Here is a replacement...

...if you want to try it, first navigate to

 

 

Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\aircraft\F-86\Cockpit\Textures\F-86F-35-CPT-TEXTURES

 

 

Unzip the F-86F-35-CPT-TEXTURES file. Do NOT delete the zipped file after you unzip it, these are your back up cockpit textures.

 

 

Inside the unzipped F-86F-35-CPT-TEXTURES folder you will find F-86F_Cockpit_Texture6, you can replace it with the one from the Dropbox link above. Should fix the issue.
