    Shaders texture problem

    Hi folks have a look at my BoB Install,iv`e just installed the latest Ankors Shaders package and this is what i get,see pic
    also are there any changes to the config overides and default overides in /appdata also the main config overides that may improve the sim?
    Iv`e tried these settings but now the sim crashes CTD.and the texture problem remains;

    *** Warning ***
    You must turn off Dual Pass Render, and turn on the High Resolution Z Buffer, and Disable Shadows. in cfs3confing.exe.

    Z Bias Resolution should be typically be limited to 15. Higher values can lead to some rendering problems on some systems.

    Z Bias Flat effects should be set to 25 to reduce flickering of the bomb crater decals.

    The CFS3 Default Water Detail Texture Size is 5 and the SeaWater.fx settings in this package are preset to match. Using a different texture size will change the appearance of the wave dimensions unless you adjust the values in SeaWater.fx to match.

    By the looks of the picture that has nothing much to do with AnKor's Shaders. The textures are not being mapped to the airplane in a way that lines up. The plane is either looking at the wrong dds files, or the files have been corrupted / edited incorrectly (shifted, resized, etc.).

    CFS3 has a bad habit of looking through every folder to find a file. If you happen to have more than one named the same thing (this typically happens when you add new aircraft) very odd things like can result.

    If this was me, I would start by looking in the m3d file with a hex editor to see what dds file it's trying to use. I would then do a Windows search through all the CFS3 directories for that name to see if I had more than one.

    p.s. The CTD may just be a sound.cfg problem with the last aircraft you were trying to fly. Also selecting an invalid loadout can cause a CTD. You can edit the game.xml to make ShowUIWorld="false", and it should let the game start and you can select another aircraft, until you get the problem fixed.

    I had a similar problem with my ETO install before I ever added the Ankor's shader.
    I traced it down to my NVIDIA settings. I could not use the antialiasing mode "override any application setting". See
    I'm not sure how to link to another thread.
