RC4 Shifts My Position ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

Been a long time user of RC4 with FS9...

 

All of a sudden I have an issue when trying to run the following flight... I start FS9 - load my flight plan and start my session at Chelan - I then minimize FS9 then launch RC4 with the following flight plan loaded... I've used this same procedure for years... Now - when I maximize FS9 - my position has shifted to the middle of the ocean and in a different time zone - I'm guessing on the other side of the planet... I've never seen RC4 physically move a plane before... Other flight plans seem to work... Any ideas ??? I am using the old Georender Chelan - and I did rebuild my DB in RC4...

 

Any ideas ???

Hi Folks,

 

Nevermind - it just didn't like the identifier with a "K" before "S10" that was added by FSBuild - once I manually stripped it away it seemed to work OK... I still don't know why RC4 was moving the plane - but - it works...

Scott,

If RC does not recognise your airfield of departure - as seems to be the case here before you stripped out the 'K' - it sets its location to 0 degrees longitude and 0 degrees latitude and moves the flight there. That's why you found yourself in the Atlantic Ocean about 700 miles off the west coast of Africa where the Greenwich meridian crosses the equator.

Hi Pete,

 

That sounds like it - as the local time went from day to night as well... Appreciate the input - seems I am back on track now...

:)

 

Regard,

Scott
