Anyone having trouble getting the lights to work?

The attachment Screenshot_Stevens Pass_47.42232--120.30695_18-02-50.jpg is no longer available

They are working OK: Flares (forward and rear), road spread light as well as cab lights (L).

Gage lights (instruments) keys are not working (As indicated in the manual). I don´t think they are in the original.

Are you using the keyboard to control lights (HUD lights not implemented)?

What I don´t like that much is the evolution (from F45) of forward lighted road during daylight. It was too intense before and non existing now.

The fact they are non existent makes it more realistic. In real life, the lights don't cast onto the ground during the day. (Unless for some odd reason it extremely dark during the day)

So, during a sunny day, the cast light isn´t even a little "perceptible", and close track objects (signals, boxes, etc..) slightly illuminated by the loco?

Yes using H for the headlights and L for cab lights. H rotates the headlight switch in the cab but lights do not turn on.

You did not forget to enable the MLWAudio 16 645D folder either in your route or your scenario? I don´t know why a "D" instead of an "E"). The manual is wrong with the product name.

However what puzzles me is that you can´t light the cab with L (it must be in both mappers, the original and the enhanced).
I don´t think the Headlight flares box checked in Settings Graphics has anything to do with that.

If enabling is not the cause, try installing again.

You're right, they don't light up the actual gauges. They light up the radio buttons and display.

Ctrl-I or Shift-Ctrl-I does not change anything in my cab. Radio buttons and numbers led´s are lighted by default.

There are not class lights control either (but the manual has keystrokes for that).

Alaska RR is the only one with class lights as per what's modeled.

Gauge lights work in daytime and nighttime. So, the switch doesn't really matter.

The update to fix the input mappers for the gauge lights (which really just is the new cab radio) and the K3LA is now available from the products page on our website.

Ok. Alaska and Caltrain are the two DLC I do not have yet.

I am experiencing rpm issues when I go from notch 3 to 4 and from 5 to 6 (when increasing throttle). It is the contrary of what people mentioned with the F45. So far, I do the same I did with the F45.

When accelerating from 3 (5) to 4 (6), it doesn´t show an increase of rpm, so I go back to 3 and then up to 4 again and there, it usually changes the rpm.
This method works always.

After a backwards correction in 4 or 6, I have found in most of the cases, rpm will not fail again during the remaining running session.

I do agree as above: Great work, as in all enhancements! !!howdy!!

It really doesn´t.
