GNS V2 update v2.3.1 available

11 posts in this topic

Hi, I thank you all for your massive and warn welcome to this new gem!

This has been a frantic week juggling among dozens of things and trying to find a solution to every single issue reported. We've had made a lot of progress toward the update and I wanted to share the list of items addressed so far:

  • Assistant not always decoding the correct gauge X,Y,W,H (position + dimension) in the panel.cfg file.
  • Installer reporting XML/Variant related error: we've worked on a more robust XML config tool which should prove to handle installation correctly.
  • Support for legacy GNS exported variable, which should help transitioning until aircraft vendors catch up with GNS V2.
  • Support for more default GPS commands, especially for the left knobs (push/inner/outer).
  • Added a fix for the floating point error reported when the sys_nand file has been corrupted (cdp_mfd.dll error).
  • Corrected A/P loosing ALT mode when arming APPR mode when flying with GNS vertical guidance.

 

The GNS V2 2.3.1 update is now available from this link:

Thank you again for your patience!

A quick update on the update!

We've been chasing a nasty bug this afternoon when doing our final tests prior packaging, and this made us miss today's deadline we were targeting. Honestly, I was about to pull my hairs out, and I just wanted to share with you what has happened. This might help in the future.

The tests were done on all sims (believe me, when releasing a product which is compatible from FS9 to P3D4, these are very time consuming). Usually, we do the tests on stock aircraft, most of the time the B58.

I'm yet to get to the bottom of it, but it seems the P3D4 B58 has a bug: when loading the sim with this aircraft (open the sim, pickup aircraft/location/weather or load situation), the NAV/GPS switch will not activate when told to. That is the gauge sends the standard FSDK trigger_key_event (or send_key_event) and this won't work.

Now load the Mooney instead, and it works ok. Switch to the B58, it works ok too!

This is really peculiar and we've lost a lot of time trying to figure what was wrong in our code base.

Nevertheless, the good news is that by tomorrow morning our time, the release shall be ready! It will be first made available through the forum, and if there is no crash-type bugs, it will be officially released via the "Check Updates..." button.
