Hi,

I have just installed the v1.01 update. When I try the new thumbnail maker feature all goes well up to the point where the ag_barn appears but the screen does not turn green so I can proceed no further. The graphics card is a ATI Radeon X850XT PE and it drives a 24" LCD monitor at 1920x1200x32bit resolution via a DVI link.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks  Rod.

Was the airplane facing North?
Did you set the altitude to ~2000ft above ground?
Are you using FSX or FS9?

Hi,

North yes, 2000ft yes and I am using FSX.

Thanks,  Rod.

Do you get the green screen when you turn the plane South?
What are the exact geographical coordinates and the altitude?
Can you post a screenshot?

Problem sorted!

I had my a\c positioned over the UK with Horizon's Generation X Photoscenery. When I moved to the Caribbean with MS default textures the screen goes green and the Thumbnail Maker works OK. The answer seems to be that you need default ground textures rather than modified photo textures to get the tool to function correctly.

Thanks for your help and speedy response.

Rod.
