ATC window shuts down COF

Recommended Posts

Guest Dan CYKA

Every time I try to move or resize the ATC window in COF using default AC it shuts the sim down.Any ideas what may be causing this?

Open up your default flight with Notepad or Wordpad, either the fs2004 original or a new flight you made as default, for example, bugga-wagga.flt. Find an entry like the following or insert an entry like the following:[Air Traffic Control]Undocked=FalseScreenUniCoords=1000, 1500, 2192, 1000UndocCoords=0, 0, 0, 0/[Air Traffic Control]/Undocked=False/ScreenUniCoords=1500, 1200, 5192, 2000/UndocCoords=0, 0, 0, 0Note: The second entry above shows the original values. I copied the original section and pasted it above the original values. I then placed a "/" in front of each line of the original values so they would not be read by the system. Probably could also use the ";".Fiddle with the numbers to locate the ATC panel where you want it. It also looks like you could insert Undocked coordinates also.Lastly, I could resize and move the original ATC window anywhere on my screen and FS2004 didn't crash.W. Sieffert

Hey Dan,I see you are related to Fanda's Dash 8 so I think we are having the same problem. COF crashed on me twice when I tried to resize the ATC window on POSKY's 757. Well I noticed that both times it happened when I passed from Oleksyi's Dash 8 to the 757. It may also happen when passing from the Dash 8 to any default aircraft. I have not tried this out yet. The only solution is not loading the Dash 8 on startup. After using the Dash 8 you have to exit the sim and restart with another aircraft. It could have something to do with a faulty gauge on Oleksyi's panel that stays loaded once you change planes. Who knows...Mauricio
