ASK21 / Discus C4 Gauge Problem

8 posts in this topic

Hello Mathjis,

I am afraid the C4 gauge problem has come back in not showing the text. I have narrowed it down to this update.

"2017-05 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4016871)"

When I removed this update and re-booted the computer and loaded the Discus the C4 gauge was showing the text correctly.

How odd, I see nothing in that update that could affect it and so far you are the only one affected. But thanks for the info, our support will now keep en eye on it.

Hi Mathijs,

As w10 updates are mandatory, I keep getting this issue.

I think I have got around this by installing the full font set from another w10 PC.

Having installed the fonts and rebooted all seems OK again.

What is the actual font the C4 gauge uses? It would be useful to know.

These are the fonts that should be in the FSX fonts folder. They do NOT need to be installed into Windows.

Hi Mathijs,

I have the first 3 fonts installed in FSX/Fonts but not the last two.

LCD_MONO.ttf

LCD_MONO_italic.ttf

 

I did a re-install of the gliders over the weekend and it has not installed these two fonts.

Would be able to send these two fonts to me

Thanks.

Send it to you talktalk address.

 

But a Windows update that prevents a from from installing in the FS font folder? That sounds very very weird.

Hello Mathijs,

Thank you for the fonts, I installed the full set into FSX/Fonts.

I am afraid I still cannot see any alpha/numeric characters on the C4.

I am resigned to the fact that something on the w10 operating system side is preventing these fonts being read in properly. Very strange as I have never had a problem at all over the last 3 years or so.

Edit:

Just excluded my whole FSX folder in Windows Defender rebooted and the C4 now working.

I'll have another check tomorrow to see if this has fixed it.

There is something very weird on your Windows setup. Defender should NEVER prevent a font from being used.
