Instant Scenery 3

Recommended Posts

Hi Maarten,

 

I've been using SLX with P3Dv2.5 for a few weeks now but  am having trouble getting Instant Scenery 3 to work  with it. If I load a flight with SLX, within the drop-down bar I see "Addon" containing FSUIPC and Instant Scenery which I can use but if for some reason I load another flight or create a new one , Instant Scenery disappears from the "Addon" tab,

Looking inside of the dll.xml in Notepad reveals the lines for IS3 have vanished:-

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>

<SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0">
  <Descr>Launch</Descr>
  <Filename>dll.xml</Filename>
  <Disabled>False</Disabled>
  <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad>
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Launch.Addon>
        <Name>FSUIPC 4</Name>
        <Disabled>False</Disabled>
        <Path>Modules\FSUIPC4_Loader.dll</Path>
    </Launch.Addon>
</SimBase.Document>

 

Whereas its normally like this:-

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?>

<SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0">
  <Descr>Launch</Descr>
  <Filename>dll.xml</Filename>
  <Disabled>False</Disabled>
  <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad>
  <Launch.Addon>
    <Name>Instant Scenery</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad>
    <Path>E:\Flight Simulator Utilities\Instant Scenery 3\InstantSceneryP3D.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>
  <Launch.Addon>
        <Name>FSUIPC 4</Name>
        <Disabled>False</Disabled>
        <Path>Modules\FSUIPC4_Loader.dll</Path>
    </Launch.Addon>
</SimBase.Document>

 

Reboot and launch the flight with SLX and everything is back to normal. Have contacted Flight1 but no answers yet, can you advise please?

 

Regards

Hi Nigel,

 

The issue is most probably caused by your profile settings. Can you please send me the [Documents]\SimLauncherX\SimLauncherX.log file and the [Documents]\SimLauncherX\SimLauncherX.Profiles.xml file?

 

thanks, Maarten

Hello Maarten

 

 Enclosed are SimDatabaseErrorLog and SimLauncherX.Profile.xml files. Thanks for your help.

Had to do it this way as I can't figure how to add attachments to this post!

Hi Nigel,

 

I need the SimLauncherX.log file, not the SimDatabaseErrorLog.txt file. To locate the log file, Make sure file extensions are visible in Windows Explorer.

 

thanks, Maarten

P.S By the way Maarten, the log file is labelled "SimLauncherX" only and is a text file; no mention of log in the details at all, thats why I could'nt find it in My Documents/SimLauncherX.

Hi Nigel,

 

  1. You have turned off the visibility of file extensions for known file types. That's why you do not see the .log extension. Go to the Windows Explorer folder options, select the View tab and uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types'.
  2. After startup SLX copies your C:\Users\Nigel\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\dll.xml file to C:\Users\Nigel\Documents\SimLauncherX.dll.xml. On the next startup SLX compares the C:\Users\Nigel\Documents\SimLauncherX.dll.xml file to the then current C:\Users\Nigel\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\dll.xml file (see your log file above: 20150514130105    TRACE    P3D dll.xml file has changed). If the 2 files are not equal (i.e. you have changed the dll.xml in between SLX sessions) and you have one or more profiles that point to a different dll.xmll file, SLX comes up with a dialog that offers the option to update those profiles with the changes you made.
  3. When you use SLX to launch the simulator, the dll.xml file that your current profile points to, is copied over the current C:\Users\Nigel\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\dll.xml file, but only when the contents of the 2 files differ.
  4. This means that SLX only changes the dll.xml file when the current profile does not point to C:\Users\Nigel\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\dll.xml file, and the contents of this other dll.xml file differ from the contents of the C:\Users\Nigel\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\dll.xml file
  5. If you have only 1 Prepar3D profile and this profile points to C:\Users\Nigel\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\dll.xml, SLX will not touch this dll.xml file.

I hope this makes things clear.

 

thanks, Maarten

Thanks Maarten, I've altered the visibility of the file extensions but I had to read what you wrote a few times to understand the workings of SLX and will not alter any dll.xml files in future and I understand what SLX is doing when it loads now!

 

Thanks again for your help.

 

Regards

 

Nigel
