New J41 Buyer: Flashes of light in VC

While doing a quick search in this thread it seems I may have an issue others describe. But I want to make sure it's the same thing. I've created a 30 sec youtube video to illustrate my problem. The flashes appear in the first few seconds, around 11 sec, and near the end of the video. It's not lightning and it's not my lights (sometimes strobe lights appear in the VC with addon planes). System in specs and I'm running FSX Acceleration DX9 with max settings in the J41 config panel.Has PMDG addressed this issue since the release of the J41? If not what can be done about it?Video:

You're right, there's thunderstorms :)These flashing rectangles are usualli in the corners or in the mid-windshield, and only, when visible icing is selected in JS41 config tool.I used to have them back in the days, now they are gone - do not remember which nVidia Inspector settings change cured me.If it is a help to anybody, I use 16xAF with 4xSS plus SUPERVCAA 64X 4V 12

Yep - told you you'd know it when you saw it. :wink:In the beginning, I found that if I were to load the aircraft at a tiny default airport first, then move it to a complex field the problem did not occur. However, since I've got my new computer (which is substantially more powerful) I've found that this occurs no matter where I start up.The only sure-fire fix is to turn of the visible icing effects.

What I do at times is load the airplane from an outside view, wait for it to load properly and then switch to the cockpit view. At a small airport that is. And lately I have not been bothered with those flickering polygons.Might be worth the try to see if this works for you as well.Then again, I also have scenery (eg. Andras field) that has that same effect at times, no matter what plane I load, even default FSX ones. So my guess is that it must be some FSX bug/limitation in rendering complex graphics. Or something along those lines.Anyway, as long as I load the J41 at a small airport from an outside view, and then go where I want to and switch to the cockpit, I am fine.
