NEWS > WINJEEL V1.31 Patch for FSX:Steam Edition (Mar 2018)
1.31 PATCH for CAC Winjeel for FSX:Steam Edition (Download)
This optional patch is for FSX:Steam Edition payware version only. Do not install this patch if you are not using FSX:Steam Edition. The demo version has been updated to include this patch and demo users should redownload the full installer (Download Winjeel demo)
The patch fixes an issue where the mouse zones would disappear making it impossible to mouse click on controls. Users of the Winjeel in FSX:Steam Edition should only need to install this patch if they are having issues with disappearing mouse zones. The cause of the issue is a bug in FSX:Steam Edition. It appears that FSX:SE only supports 64 bone/skin animations. If there are more than 64 bone/skin animations then it appears to cause some corruption of the mouse map memory in the virtual cockpit leading to the loss of the mouse zones.
The Winjeel uses bone/skin animations for the landing and taxi light splashes on the ground as well as the FAC aerial. As the number of these skin/bone animations exceeds 64 it triggers the bug in FSX:SE. This patch removes the skin/bone animations for the light splashes (but keeps the FAC aerial animations) and replaces them with the default landing light effect. This is not as pretty but it fixes the missing mouse zones.
