No Runway Lights and PCL Won't Work in P3D4.5 HF2

Post by CurtLewis95T »


I am a new user and cannot get the PCL to work using the caps key at any airport. I have been referencing the list of PCL airports and trying several different aircraft and radio combos with no luck. Active database is 2011, and I have tried enabling and disabling with and without PCL checked - and the airports that are supposed to have PCL runway lights are dark in either configuration.

I also made sure that the file order in the scenery library matched what was in the FAQ section as it applied to HF2.

Any ideas?

it should work; please follow the next test on your setup:
1) Verify the PCL option is checked in the FSAD config tool, and re-enable the database.
2) Start the simulator, and verify on the controls menu that the Transmit voice commmand is assigned to Caps Lock.
3) Check the FSAerodata database is active on the simulator (menu World->FSAerodata), with the correct cycle.
4) Select a test airport, e.g. PADK, at night and tune comms to 122.9
5) Press Caps Lock 3, 5 or 7 times within 5 secs. and the runway lights should light up.

Is the database running correctly with the updated navaids, comms, approaches, airways,....

Let me know if it still doesn't work out,
