Thread: EE Lightning?

  1. #1

    EE Lightning?

    Is there an English Electric Lightning available for FSX? I recall UKMIL working on one, but I think it was axed. I think Alphasim and and Kazunori Ito each released FS9 (or FS2002) versions. But I don't believe any have been done in a while.

    AFAIK, you are correct in everything you said above. (Can't say anything more. :salute

    December last year, bazzar from Aeroplane Heaven suggested on this forum they might do one somewhere in the future. No updates since, keeping my fingers crossed...

    I think it was never Freeware but the elder Alpha-sam payware Flys well in FSX(Accel SP2) after some gauge tweaking

    Thanks for the advise guys!

    I just downloaded the Lightning from Alphasim. I probably have two or more copies buried away in the external hard drive hanger. But anyway...

    Thunder- can you either post or send me a copy of your panel file? It looks really nice!

    Rename the file to panel.cfg and it's fine!

    That just means removing the '.zip' bit from the end

    Did you ever manage to do a manual engine start?
    Ctrl_e works fine but all I get when trying a manual start is a surging engine between 10 & 20%.

    Hi Roland,

    WinZip Says the folder is empty so you can't extract the file.

    Manual start procedure does not work in FSX because it looks like the engine start switches use XML gauges which are not compatible with FSX event ID's / variables.

    Bruce, I just tried to save it, removing the .zip from the filename and set the the box below the filename from 'zip files' to 'all files'. It saves it as 'panel.cfg' which I can open with notepad like all text and cfg files.

    Each pack comes with a slightly different gauge set:

    Pack 1 v1.1: EELighting.cab
    Pack 2 : EELighting(2).cab
    Pack 3 : EELighting(3).cab

    I already have all three original Alphasim packages, but I thought I'd see of this was an upgrade.
    Nope! Same old FS9 only package (with FS98 gauges) with a few T-birds added, waste of money.

    I've already been six days playing with this and there are just a few irritating problems left that I hope to overcome in time.

    XML gauges should be amenable to modifying (I already have for some items in the .cab). I think it's more likely the code in the air file.

    I will persevere.

    If anyone's interested in fixing the lights switch problem on the F2A/F3/F6, the following line in LightsSwitch.xml needs changing to;

    Value(A:LIGHT NAV, bool) 0 == if{ 0 } els{ (A:LIGHT STROBE, bool) 0 == if{ 1 } els{ 2 }}/Value

    (add the < and >'s)

    "...lights switch problem on the F2A/F3/F6..."

    The T4/T5 model has separate NAV and STROBE switches (items 23 & 24 on page 10 of the manual).
    I don't have this model installed so I can't say if they work or not. Is there a problem with these switches?
