    DCC F-5E-2 Photo Lightning Issue and Fix

    Something strange was going on with the Eyes of Texas F-5E. I noticed it when seeing Maskrider's screen shots in the P-38J post. The lower nose camera panel was turning black when your view point moved away from it. I don't know why but changing the camera.bmp format from DTX1 to DTX3 cured it. I've updated the zip file in the Warbirds library download.

    You may download the fixed file or you also may have the option of simply changing the Eyes of Texas F-5E camera.bmp to DTX3 if you have the DTX1 Bitmap Manipulator program from Martin Wright.
    Cheers,

    Captain Kurt

    Kurt,

    Many thanks for converting and releasing these...we needed an expanded Lightning set for CFS2.

    Kurt,

    The AI in the original Morton DCC conversion wouldn't keep pace with a player lead above 150 knots or so. Pen32Win gave me a set of revised .cfg and .air files a while back for the DCC P-38F, G, H, and J that stripped out a lot of FS9 info and made the AI behavior must more consistent in CFS2.

    Kurt,

    Beautiful job on this...a photo Lightning was sorely missing in the CFS2 arsenal. Well done.

    Hi Rami

    I just built a test mission with 8 P-38Js at 30,000 ft. The wingmen kept perfect formation at 215 knots. I then dove to 20,000 feet reaching 380 knots and they were still in formation when I leveled out at 360 knots. I'd say no issue, but please check for yourself.
    Cheers,

    Captain Kurt

    In the readme I see where it says to place a P38diveflap.wav in the main Sound folder, and a .dll file in the gauges folder. But I don't see those files in the download. If those were missing, would that cause a crash?

    No, apparently those only work in FS2004. I couldn't get them to function in CFS2.
    Cheers,

    Three interesting F-4s, the top two doing valuable work with 75 Sqn over Northern New Guinea, Goodenough Island and New Britain. The bottom aircraft was probably based at Coomalie Creek in the Northern Territory.

    Great looking Night Lightning Kurt. Thanks for your work on this set of Lightnings.

    Capt. Thank you for your work on these. I am wondering though, why am I not seeing the RPM gauges in the VC? Am I missing something?

    Question Reply...

    Kurt,

    There's nothing new in the library, unless you just updated the packages. Are you sure you don't mean these? You uploaded them on March 11th, 2019.

    I moved them back to the front of the library just to be sure.
