Thank you and a couple questions

Recommended Posts

HiFirst, i want to thank Ed for his great tutorial. With it, i got TP running in less than 10 minutes. Second, i have a couple questions:After installation, i have 3 new folders:1- C:Tileproxy (with the tileproxy photoreal world and 1.5GB of files inside it after 3 test flights)2- C:TPcache (empty folder)3- C:Program FilesMicrosoft Gamescache.service3 (with 670MB of files in it, after the 3 flights)The questions are:1- Why is the TPcache folder always empty? What's the use for it?2- If i clear the cache (with the Manage Service Caches browser)which folder will i be cleaning, number 1, number 3, or both?3- Why do i have one folder with 1.5GB and the other with 670MB? Shouldn't all these files be in the same folder?Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.Thanks.

Hi JudithThanks for your help.From what i understood, i can then delete the C:TPcache folder because my cache is on the cache.service3 folder. Is that right?Thanks again.

If you want to leave the cache folders in C:Program FilesMicrosoft Games, yes. If you prefer to move the cache to C:TPcache, on the other hand, change each cache_folder line in your ProxyUser.ini file accordingly, and delete the cache.service* folder(s) in C:Program FilesMicrosoft Games.You can't cause any real damage to TileProxy by accidentally deleting any of the cache.service* folders, by the way. You would lose all the images already downloaded, but TileProxy would just recreate the folder and redownload everything it needs the next time you go flying. So the only harm is wasting some bandwidth and server load. Note, however, that this does not apply to the TileProxy Photoreal World folder.Judith
