I don't know whether it's relevant but I'm still using FSX SP1?

The markings are from Sidney Schwartz and are contained in the file
'gate_markings_ss_v2.zip' - this file (get it from AVSim) should be unzipped
to a temporary location and installed per the included readme taking care to
delete any previous versions of the files (v1) if you have them.  This
latter point may possibly be causing at least one of the problems that
you've seen.

The zip file contents are shown here:

There's definitely something odd about the markings. This cropped up
during the testing.

On my setup I see them but they are black. Ho ho, you say, probably got
duplicate .bgl files in place, since this is the usual cause of black
textured objects in FSX. But I checked and hadn't. Even more puzzling
the fact that the same markings are used at Norfolk and Newcastle and
they correctly display, in yellow and something like lilac.

Meanwhile Mike and TM have the same scenery and no problems.

I'm beginning to wonder whether it might be graphics card related.

Anyway, I've learned to live with it.

I agree. The scenery is very impressive. On your copy, can you see
ramp markings as per the screen shot included with the file?

Just done a quick flit around the new Ronaldsway scenery, using a
Bell206 air ambulance.

Very impressive, full marks to TM and Gerry and Mike.

Not knowing the area personally, I can only comment on what I see

Thanks guys.
