TaxiwaySign xml label

Recommended Posts

Hi all.I know this subject has been covered before (and for the most of it answered to), but I am looking for additionnal info.The texture sheet used to generate the signs (aptsign.bmp) also covers the "ils hold", "runway hold" and "no entry symbols". It also has a white letters on black background portion to it (this is for distance markers along runways), on top of the rwy(m), location(l) and direction (d) we all know.Anyone knows which ascii code would be used to access these?Vauchez

The BGLCOMP_SDK doesn't mention but three types of signs:Location (l) sign: yellow lettering on black backgroundDirection (d) sign: black lettering on yellow backgroundRunway ® sign: white lettering on red backgroundI can only recommend trying different starting letters minus the ones already uses, i.e., l, d, r to see if any of them cause the white letters on a black background to be used. Please let us know what you find out.W. Sieffert
