Non-live version - a few potential issues

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

First of all a huge thanks for offering a non-live version as that's what I actually use and you are the only one I know that offers this. A did come across a few problems, which I am unable to find the cause. PSX seems to only accept airport files that come straight out of PPG. As soon as I alter the smallest detail I always get an error message "no airport found within 5 nm". I only edited gates (e.g. remove/add airlines, remove all airline/aircraft parameters to use it for myself, etc...). It's very strange, because it accepts anything from PPG (even if I change parameters prior to generating the file), but when I change them by myself I always get the error message. The only thing left I can think of is that upon saving the file it saves it in some *.xml format that isn't recognizable. Other than that I am out of ideas.

Thanks and best regards,


Amadeo Araujo

You probably make syntactical errors. What does the log file tells you? Could you post it here?

Check: Did you put your manually created files in the parked_updates sub folder?

The only thing I did was take out the values of gate 1 (g1) to use it for myself....

UPDATE:

Ok it appears when editing existing airline/aircraft entries all is good. When I however want to add aircraft/airline codes to a gate that has none or delete aircraft/airline entries, which I don't want occupied I get the problem. But what I do is just copy the parameters from another gate, so it looks exactly the same. At least I think I am following the intended way of setting the parameters (as seen in the example above).

This line, for a parking position without aircraft options, is syntactically wrong:

   <parkpos id="g1" latitude="39.607563" longitude="19.913464" heading="346.8" radius="32.0" cargo="false">
 

it should be:

   <parkpos id="g1" latitude="39.607563" longitude="19.913464" heading="346.8" radius="32.0" cargo="false" />

Aahhh... That's what it was. Thanks a lot. Then I think I know what went wrong with the parking spaces I wanted to add airline/aircraft parameters that had none. Thanks a lot
