I'm having some problems with my FS2002 gauges failing when my aircraft gets to 10,000 feet.
It's mostly occuring with the 737-400 panel, which I have on almost all my twin jet aircraft through aliasing.
Anyway, what's happening is that everything functions fine in the plane on the ground, during takeoff, and below 10,000 feet. But when I get to that altitude, all of my HSI gauges fail. That is, the direction indicators. the HSI, the ADF, anything that has a compass rose on it will get stuck in position and no longer function.
The only direction indicator that will still work, is the compass itself.
The other night I tried to do a 737 flight from SNA to LAS, had this gauge failure and had to turn around and land back at SNA, hoping that restarting the sim would help.
Last night, I tried the same flight again. Took off and sure enough, at 10,000 feet, all my direction indicators failed. I was too frustrated to turn back to the airport so I flew the entire flight navigating by compass only...and strangely enough, actually arrived on time! :D
(SWA flight 441 SNA-LAS, this is the flight I was doing, departure 2:10PM arrival 3:10 PM).
Now, I could continue using the compass only but it's really tedious to do so, and I'd like to get my HSI, ADF, and other direction finders working agian above 10,000, so does anyone know a way to fix this? Anyone know what might be causing this problem? I've never had it before. :(
Thanks for any help you can give.
