Problem with dubai airport

Post by Stefan-hp » Wed Jan 09, 2008 8:58 am

I have a problem with the add-on dubai. For example: When I fly from Germany/Frankfurt to Dubai and I am landing now in Dubai, the graphics are flickering wildly. But if I start from Dubai to somewhere the graphics of the ground are not flickering.

I installed it two times. One time with the option "paved edgelights" and one time without the option "paved edgelights". But whatever I do, it does not repair the bug.

Perhaps it is interesting to know, that I use the add-on for Flight Simulator 2004.

I love this add-on. Conesquently, I hope that someone can help me.

Do you use Mega Airport Frankfurt??

If yes, do you have installed SP1 for it?

Yes I have Mega Airport Frankfurt. But what is SP1? And why is the airport Frankfurt guilty for graphic problems by the airport of dubai? Sorry for so much questions :).

Edit: Oh ... do you mean Service pack 1 for windows? If yes, I have no idea if I installed it, it is too long ago, that I installed Frankfurt.

Edit2: I looked in my system. I have service pack 2 installed.

No I don't mean the service pack for Windows.

There is an update (SP1) for Mega Airport Frankfurt available on the Aerosoft site!

I can't explain what MAF has to do with the texture problem at the other airports, but it was a well know bug before SP1.

I have the same problem.
I just purchased Dubai from simmarket and installed it.
When I start at Dubai the scenery is flickering like crazy.

Do you know what the cause is and how to solve it?

Thank very much!

Well as from now it seems to be solved.
I noticed I had a duplicate scenery in my libary and since I deleted it the flickering is gone....strange how that could be effected.

Well I am a happy man now a starting tomorrow a flight from Amsterdam to Dubai with Air Force One ;):D

Regards, Guy

Did you check if the issues mentioned in this thread apply to your installation?

If the scenery flickers only after coming from a long flight, but doesn't behave that way then you load it or come flying in from a nearby airport, I have no idea how to fix it. The best in this case is to test if there are any kinds of patterns, such as: does it only happen if you fly to dubai from departure point A over a certain route... does it also happen you you come from a departure point on the opposite side of the globe. Does the Aircraft you use make a difference etc.
