Help, I've screwed it up

Recommended Posts

I was trying to modify an airport file with afcad, and I some how deleted all the airports from certain .bgl files? I was trying to delete the default taxiways and parking spots from EGNV. I selected Edit-select all and hit the delete key. All the files are still in the afdfiles/scenery folder. I can still open them with afcad, if I select "open from specific file" on the open/search page and browse to Scenedb/afdfiles/scenery. However if I try to search "from all scenery files" I only get a blank page? Also, there appears to be no starting points in the "go to airport" page within the sim. How do I get the sim to recognize these airports again?

Can anyone tell me which .bgl files FS reads the airport data from, so I can recopy them from the cd. The affected files seem to be eurnwafd.bgl ans usneafd.bgl. At least this is how they appear under the scenedb/afdfiles/scenery folder.

One thing to try first - quit and restart FS, and see if everything is OK then. This usually fixes this, by allowing FS to reindex the files.If not, the AFD files are in the FS2002.CAB file on the FS CD; you can use WinZip to unpack it (double click it).Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://members.aol.com/tgfltsim/index.htmlAlcoHauler Locomotive Page: http://members.aol.com/alcohauler/home/alcohaul.htmlFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

OK, Thanks Tom. I guess that afcad makes a back-up file everytime you modify an airport. So when I renamed my .original afd file back to .bgl, I was just reinstalling the error I had made (do to my attempts to fix the problem). I copied the afd files in question from the cd and all is right with the world once again. THANKS!
