Re: JYAI FSX F-15s for FSX Lakenheath (ACG)

Post by ricki429 »

My F-15s at Lakenheath seem to go black when the base is full...obviously it is a memory problem as when half of them are out they all display fine and the model displays correctly at Seymour Johnson and Mountain Home..

Would anyone know of a better file type to save the textures as to stop this happening?

They are DDS DXT5 files at 1024 x 1024 with no mips ...straight off AVSIM.
The MO and SJ ones in the same format dont give me this trouble?

Was the LN package that you used called jyai_f-15s_fsx_lakenheath_repaints.zip by Zsolt?

Also was the package for MO called jyai_f-15e_s_mo_366fw_fsx_.zip by Mark W?

The reason I ask is that I want to ensure that I have both packages that you do.

IF they are the same packs then there is a difference. The MO ones are DXT5 but are 2048x2048 in size but do have Mips whereas the LN ones are DXT5 1024x1024 and do not have Mips. It would seem that a possible cause could be that with that many aircraft at the base you need mipped textures to be able to cope on your setup.

IF the packs I stated are the same I would try backing up your LN folder(s) and converting them to mips using one of Don's utils, texture Manager or Mipmap Manager to see if that helps.

Hi Steve, thanks for the reply.
Having checked, you are correct the MO files are 2048x2048 and the LN are indeed 1024.
Will try downloading mipmap manager and give that a go.

Thanks for your help all sorted.
Downloaded mipmap manager and converted the textures....replaced the old folders with the new one mipmap manager created and then converted the files back to DDS DXT5 and all looking good now.

Glad it is sorted.
It is kinda weird that the bigger textures were ok but the smaller ones w/o mips weren't, but hey its nice that we were able to investigate a solution.

Just for the record they all went black again!
'Tranquil' kindly went through my aircraft.cfg and noticed one F-15 had an error in the texture file name...with that corrected they all now show. Thanks to Mark and the previous posters.
