TP not working

Recommended Posts

I havent used TP in a while so I thought that I would give it a go again. But when I do the sim loads but I get this message:TileAPI_ObtainTile: Excessive TileAPI tile count (overscan:0.000000, tilewidth=8, tileheight=8, level=10, w=1, h=2147481630, w*h=2147481630)qmid=15, offset=-5.000000, drop=0, increase=0C:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesMicrosoft Flight Simulator XTileproxy>pausePress any key to continue . . .And all i get is black scenery.I have tried reinstalling but no luck and my config seems fine and has worked before.Any help appreciated and thanks for this great program!

what airport did you take off from? Maybe the geographic location is related to this failure scenario.

I'm getting exactly the same error message with FS9. I have tried all services using the latest proxyini file available but with all the same error occurs. Also it is not FS location specific.Any ideas how to solve this?Help is much appreciated,PaulNetherlands

PaulCan you please post the content of your INI file here - we have had people say they are using the latest version and when they post it, it is all incorrect.Barry

Yes - there are errors. Your iNI file seems to be setup for FSx , instead of FS9Change these things below -- I don't know if this is your problem , but perhaps.********************************************************logfile="C:logfile.txt" should be #logfile="C:logfile.txt" (This turns the logfile reporting system off - as recommended for FS9)max_lod=15 should be max_lod=13 (Your max load is currently set for FSx)preload_max_lod=15 should be preload_max_lod=12 ( once again - you need to use FS9 numbers)preload=1023 is missing from bottom part of MOVINGMAPsection******************************************************************See how you go with thatBarry

Hi Barry, thanks for your helpI corrected the errors but it had no effect. The same error message comes up as soon as FS is loaded.I have no idea what is happening.Paul
