!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

No numbers in avionics stack

Recommended Posts

I am running the latest version of the Twin Otter Extended in P3Dv2.5 w/hotfix. I installed Hotfix 1-3 for P3Dv2 and I have no numbers in the various radios including transponder, ADF, and 2nd Comm radio etc. Also they all turn on except for the 2nd radio. GPS is working fine.

What could be the problem?

I have EXACTLY the same issue, but with the FSX version. What do I do?

I also noticed the digital clock did not show any numbers.

Solved. I had not done the restart after the install. That did the trick.

Mmm if I recall it were default Windows fonts. I do not have access to the source so I would not know which ones.

The problem is not exactly with the fonts because it happens from time to time. Need to locate dependencies.

I am not sure what you mean with dependencies. We only know this problem from systems where users have removed fonts.

So what? If it happens from time to time the question for the font should not be relevant. What sim are you using?

The only font I know which is sometimes not intsalled correctly by the sim is quartz.ttf

I just want to watch the font in system. I think too that the problem is not connected with font. State of font-folder (number of font) the same when digits are present and when they are absent. I have win10 home and FSX SE.

mmmm we only know of this issue in regards to the fonts. I will find out what font is used next week when I am back.

I wanted to say that the problem is not connected with the font directly. May be the font presents. Therefore problem may be in system or simulator etc. (i.e. how the font are read or are not read)

I don't know if the Twotter uses the "quartz.ttf" font Otto already mentioned. There is cases where this font is not properly recognized by FSX/P3D, if just being installed in the aircraft folder. To fix this problem, just search this file on your HD and copy it into

  • C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\

All this not stable. I can have the numbers (in avionics) with the font in system font-folder, I can have it without the font there ( and vice versa ). After operations with the font if I reboot PC the numbers can be present, if I shut down PC, wait a time (especially after night, long time) and then start PC the numbers can be absent....

Need to check the plan:

-start PC (first time of a day)

-reinstall the font (any operation with font)

-reboot PC

-start Sim

and look - what percent of lucky issue wiil be

 

I think the main thing is to touch the font....

Im very tired. I million times rebooted PC. And I say again - the problem appeared after big update Win10 which was recently.....

Before the update I didnt meet (didnt know) the problem.

After update the Majestic Dash8 too was injured (damaged). PMDG 777 worked fine.

I reinstalled Sim and all addons after win-update.

All other work fine. Only one problem remained..... Numbers in twotter.....((((( Which appear then disappear

There is something else: You are using the Steam Edition. Even when you close the Steam Client there can other Steam processes be running in the background (check via Taskmanager). Those Steam processes prevent the correct installation of fonts. So make sure that no Steam process is running while you install fonts.
