    EMB 175/195 v2

    I had this problem with the ERJ 135/145 P3D4 portovers. It turned out that the "lights" entries in the aircraft.cfg file were incorrect. What's weird is that I also just got the 175/195 package portover for P3D4, and my lights are working fine. I purchased from the Flightsim store. Anyway, check out the aircraft.cfg file and scroll down to the lights section, and check that the entries match the effects files that you see.
  2. There is a folder named "feelthere" in the main directory of FSX or P3D. Inside that folder, you have to create a folder named "CustomDB". Put your exported flightplan (which needs to be in feelthere format) in that "CustomDB" folder. That's it!
  3. Another option is to have your plan saved in FSX or P3D format. Then load that plan into the sim using the flight planner "load" function and then use the "load FS Plan" option in your aircraft's FMC. That's how I do it. Works great! Almost every flight planner out there will save in FSX/P3D format. Simbrief does, and so does Pro-ATC, my ATC software.
  4. If you have a flight plan file that is exported in Feelthere's format (simbrief can do this) you have to put it in a folder called CustomDB in your Feelthere folder in either FSX or P3D. If the folder doesn't exist, you have to create it.
  5. Hello. I installed the P3D portovers of the 135 and 145 a few months ago and flew them around a little. Today I noticed that the lights are not working properly. On the 135, I have only landing lights and one static light on the tail. The nav lights, beacon, strobe, and logo light do not work. On the 145, I have a working strobe on the tail, static white lights on the wingtips, and landing lights only. No logo light, no nav or beacons. I have seen a couple of other posts about this that do not seem to be resolved. There has been a suggestion that some users experiencing these light problems have installed some kind of third party lights, or have somehow messed up the default P3D lights. That isn't the case on my system. I have not introduced any new software or modified the default P3D installation other than adding ORBX Global Base and Vector. I am also running Active Sky, but that's it. None of that should interfere with the lights. All the other P3D default planes have all working lights. All my third party aircraft have full working lights. I made sure I have the latest version of the ERJ package, and just re-installed the package. Same issue. I am running the last hotfix of P3D 4.5 on Windows 7-64. Thanks!
