Something messing up the aircraft.cfg files

Recommended Posts

I had this happen twice. Something is changing some of the aircraft.cfg files when flying on the MS ZONE. This had never happened to me before, but in this last month. The airplaneI was flying was the Dash7-100 by Team 7 (but I think this is notthe source of the problems). Once I join the ZONE game all the airplanes listed below get changed, no flying is neccessary. I had this now fixed by overwriting the aircraft.cfg files with the original ones. I use WinXP (NO SP1) with locale set to Slovenian (where the . gets replaced with ,) but funny I never had this problem so far (a year), with the same config. Anyone else experiencing this?I figured out that the [fuel] entry gets messed up.the "." gets changed with "," and (and some fuel values too)then the FS cannot interpret it correctly, and those aircraftjust sink into ground and crash. The AI aircraft are even morefunny, they bounce around :)) (kind of indestructible AI :) )and then some might sink and get destroyed.Also the image gets messed up and previously I thought it was a DX9 problem, but now it does not seem so...THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF OK ENTRY (c172)[fuel]LeftMain = -3.9, -2.1, 2.5, 26.5, 0.0 //Longitudinal (feet), Lateral (feet), Vertical (feet), Usable(gallons), Unusable (gallons)RightMain = -3.9, 2.1, 2.5, 26.5, 0.0 //Longitudinal (feet), Lateral (feet), Vertical (feet), Usable(gallons), Unusable (gallons)THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF BAD (changed) ENTRY (c172)[fuel]LeftMain =-3,250000,-2,100000,2,500000,26,500000,0,000000RightMain =-3,250000,2,100000,2,500000,26,500000,0,000000The aircrafts that have been affected on my system-AddonsPSS BulldogDash7-100 v1Eurocopter AS365-default aircraftBeech King Air350Cessna c172Cessna c182rgCessna c182Cessna c208DeHaviland Dash8-100McDonnel-Douglas MD 38Mooney BravoPiper Arrow28-180
