F-22 Raptor afterburner flames ?

I recently downloaded Virtavia's F-22 Raptor, and what a sweet flying aircraft. My afterburner flames however, are not exiting the engine nozzles, but are coming off the fuselage about 3 - 4 feet higher , or way above the nozzles ? Any fix for this, or is it just something that I have to live with ?

It may be because of an older video card, as you say...live with it.

Have you spoken to Virtavia? What version of FSX are you running? Also, where did you purchase the product - SimShack?

No, I have not spoken to Virtavia, are they available for that ? It's an early basic version of FSX given to me by a friend. I have also noticed the same phenomena with "some" Nav lights, which ride above the wing tips, and are not in the wing tips. Just "some" planes, and not all. It's no big deal, and will be easy to live with. It would be nice to get it right.

For some reason that link tech.support@virtavia.com , didn't work. I guess that I will just live with it, it's no big deal. I flew it again this evening, she's a fine performer.

Thanks guys for all of your help.

I took it a step further. I deleted Flame Effects from the Effects Folder. I now have the afterburner lighting up beautifully within the turbine nozzles, but no extended, misaligned goofy looking flames. I am happy with it this way . End of story, end of problem.

Adios my friends.
