All black (yet again)

Recommended Posts

I recently (June 2017) dusted off my trusty FS9 and installed it on a modern desktop, then downloaded and installed TileProxy.

The good news: TileProxy appears to run normally, all the way to the ovals, and the selected flight (Seattle) loads normally.

The bad news: Everything around the airport is black. And when I check the cache folder, it's empty.

Here are the specs:  -FS9.1   -Win10-64bit   -Tileproxy-Beta8-Nov16

My ProxyUser.ini is shown below. I've doubled-checked that the cache folder reference is correct (the folder is E:\Tileproxy cache)

#End of ProxyUser.ini

I'd GREATLY appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

Hi Frank,

This site is indeed not often visited. You're almost right there.

Your cache folder shouldn't be empty. Cause if nothing is there, nothing is in it, what means no (black) textures.
The airport is most likely your FS9 airport, but nothing more.

I would check my cache line in ProxyUser.ini.

Checked this yet?http://www.edtruthan.com/tileproxy/tutorial/blacktiles.htm

might be helpful.

 

Have you tried getting Tileproxy to work in any modern flight sim? I'm using Tileproxy without issue in p3dv4. All you need to do is make a copy of prepar3d.exe and rename it to fsx.exe then go to properties and set compatibility settings to windows 8.

works well.

 

     I have also found a way to get correctly placed autogen in Tileproxy or any photoscenery using openstreetmap data and converting to autogen using a program called Scenproc. Off topic but it's a cool thing.
