First, before blaming the overlay, revert to the .ORIGINAL AFD file and see if things are OK then. Might be a coincidence.Then, Export your overlay and look at it in Notepad. See any "junk" characters? (like #J). Edit those to zeros, and then reedit your overlay in AFCAD. Then Import it again.Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://www.calclassic.com/Cal Classic Alco Page: http://www.calclassic.com/alco/Freeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

IS there a tutorial out there on how to get the overlays to work. I have added some through afcad but I have nothing while trying to use yroute to edit flights to the overlay airport. Example KLAX but no 2LAX.Thanks Andrew

The best one I know of is right in the AFCAD manual. Other than that, you must add the new overlay airport (2LAX) to the airports.txt file before you try to compile, otherwise the flights won't be there (or you'll get an error on compiling).Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://www.calclassic.com/Cal Classic Alco Page: http://www.calclassic.com/alco/Freeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___
