Player Shadow Anomaly

Flight Unlimited 3 comes with publisher unsupported config file settings. Adding the line "EnablePlayerShadow" to the file flt3.cfg in the main game folder enables the player's aircraft's shadow in the game, which not only adds realism but also helps with landing as well (you can gauge your aircraft's height above the runway using the shadow).


However, the feature randomly produces an anomaly (see file "Flight Unlimited 3 Player Shadow On" at https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=b386bbc8a1ade599&id=B386BBC8A1ADE599%21210). The anomaly can randomly appear in any direction (i.e. in the front, right, etc. views).


Could someone kindly advise a solution to this issue?


My current PC configuration is:

PC: HP Compaq dx7500 Microtower

RAM: Corsair 4 GB

Graphics card: Zotac GeForce GTS 250 ZT-20105-10P

OS: Win Vista SP2

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7600

There are a few bugs in the game. But it's pretty good considering its age. I just started playing it again recently after a couple of years. Man, flight sims have really evolved.

The game will have display problems on pretty much anything besides an older computer. I have tried to make it run properly on newer PCs but I've given up and got an ancient computer (by today's standards lol) and it works great.' Anyway, it's a really nice game.
