Opaque Windshields/Canopies in 2020.3.5

Postby Husky Dynamics » Tue Dec 22, 2020 3:29 am

With the 2020.3.4 release, it appears that a few of Helijah's aircraft in FGAddon have fallen victim to a bug where their windows/windshields/canopies become completely opaque (usually a shade of brown or gray) from both the inside and outside, which (obviously) prohibits flying from any of the interior views. Does anyone know the cause of this bug (and/or how to fix), and have you experienced it?

2020.3.5 is also affected, but prior versions seem fine (?)

Affected aircraft that I've found so far:
    De Havilland DH 89
    Yak 18 T
    Fairchild C119
    SAAB Jas 39 Gripen
    B 24 Liberator
Note that not all of Helijah's aircraft in FGAddon are affected by this, e.g. the C130, Stampe SV4, and Dassault/Dornier Alphajet (among most others) still work fine.

Are you using Rembrandt, ALS, or Compositor?

I'm using the ALS renderer for the most part, but it appears to do this with any renderer.
