tow planes has square for a prop

Post by Bravo Zulu » Tue Jul 05, 2022 10:18 am

When flying online, once the tow plane starts the engine, the prop turns to a white square. I have just downloaded the new hangar. Using Windows 10 PC. To try to fix it, I added goodie skins (successfully) but that did not change anything. Flying offline I get tows with props.

Try a reinstall. The file that does the propeller spin animation is called propmotion.tga. It hasn't changed sinds 2.0.0 so it will not be in the HU or Patch. Only the full installer.

Thanks, I did the reinstall. The problem still exists. The square is only when I join a server online. I get normal animation offline and when I am the host.

That is strange. Never seen that bug before. Does it happen on all servers or only on a specific one.

I tried 4 and they all had square props.
I have also reinstalled CondorPatch218.exe but still, I have square props.

Could be graphics driver. IIRC the props are the only things with transparent tga textures

Cirrus clouds are also tga I think.

OK, but it's only this one person has a problem.. indicates its something in his PC config.

Thanks
I reloaded Condor and the props look good. BTW, they were square only when spinning.
