Solved. P3Dv3 PMDG 777 ContentErrorLog errors

Recommended Posts

I persevered with the desire to have no errors when error logging is enabled in P3Dv3.   My remaining error was ...


Key values exist outside of a section:
File:E:\Games\Prepar3Dv3\SimObjects\Airplanes\PMDG 777-200LR\panel\panel.cfg

as well as other spurious errors about duplicate key names.


It turms out that the PMDG 777-200LR\panel\panel.cfg file has embedded unicode.  I just loaded the panel.cfg file into notepad, cut and pasted the text into another empty notepad window and saved it as panel.cfg (ignoring the unicode warnings).


No More Errors.

Thanks for letting us know.


I now can fix the MT errors when error logging is enabled.

I've actually found a few custom .fx files that also were saved with Unicode enabled that were throwing a lot of "errors" in the content log.

Why I pushed so hard for Error logs ... and why 3rd party pushed so hard back to not have them seen by users ... hehe


I've fixed a lot of sloppy mistakes using the P3D Content Error log feature ... despite 3rd party claims of them being "harmless".


Some of the stuff is super simple to fix and really shouldn't be there ... I pretty much love just about all 3rd party content providers, but some of this stuff, come on ladies/gents ... shouldn't be there for any level of payware.


Cheers, Rob.

How are these developers (even makers of 777) saving with Unicode on?
