Recommended Posts

Happy New Year everyone.....well I just tried firing up Fly2 for the first time in the new year and I received a error while booting up. I have a fully updated version and have XP as my operating system. The error message reads as follows:Stream CorruptCannot process next tag lineFile: stream10.cppLine: 826I hope I don't have to reinstall...........any help would be much appreciated.ps. This is the forst time I have experienced a problem with this program. This error message appears right after the initial boot up screen pic appears.ThanksRichard

G'day Richard, Don't reinstall.! ............ it most probably wont be necessary.Do a search of the forum as this error has popped up before.From memory one of the things you can try is to delete all the *.hst (history) files in the Fly/aircraft folder.The error may be caused by fly! not being able to parse a file. Syntax error if you like. This can be caused by *.hst files or *.sit files.Have you saved a situation file? ie. are you using persistant world? this is/was a common bug.Check your Fly/adventure folder for any *.sit files that you have created (saved flight plans etc) and remove them and report back. Cheers,Roger @YSSY

G'Day Rodger......in fact you may be on the money as I have been using the same adventure file for the last while. If I understand correctly I should simply delete my adventure or history files? Really appreciate you getting back to me so quick..........how was last nights celebrations?Best RegardsRichard

Round 2.............Hi Rodger..I just delete all of my .hst. and .sit files, as well as all my saved adventures...and guess what the problem is still there. I am still getting the same error message just as the time the heli pic is loading? Any further suggestions?Richard

G'day Richard,Sorry the hst and sit deletion didn't work.What about "persistant world"? were you using that option.What are your startup options?Could you possibly post the contents of your Fly.ini file.Cheers,Roger @YSSY

Hi Rob....until now I wasn't even aware of the persistent world option so in answer to your question I wasn't using it. Here is my fly.ini file. Sorry to trouble you with this but I would be great to fly in

G'day Richard,Mate you may not be aware of it but you ARE (or more correctly have been) using "persistant world"Change the linestartupOptions=4 - which is persistant worldtostartupOptions=0 - which is DEFAULTresave the fly.ini and I think this may solve your problem.Hope so. :-)Once you get it up and running get back to me as I noticed a few things that can improve your simming. But lets get you airborne first.Happy FlyingCheers,Roger @YSSY

Richard,Try deleting your default.key file.This stores your key assignments unless you have saved under a different name.It should not be necessary to re-install at all.Too many people reccomend this as a fix for almost anything.About the only time a re-install could be necessary is after a patch fails half-way through. 99% of other errors are user generated and can be fixed by reversing the last edit/action etc.The 'stream corrupt' message refers to a parsing error and therefore should only happen when Fly! is reading a file that can/has been altered by the user and/or Fly! itself.These files are the fly.ini, render.ini, *.hst, *.sit, default (or another name).key. Of course, if you have been creating scenery or editing the databases then these could also have errors and could cause this message.Fly! will re-create the fly.ini, render.ini and default.key files for you if you delete them. The *.hst and *.sit files are not important.Colin

If it doesn't work by deleting the files mentioned before,you should also delete your camera.sav file. That one canalso get corrupted sometimes.Best regards Bj

Hi Roger..looks like that last tweak solved the problem. Everything is back to normal. Interesting enough when I reistalled my .hst and .sit files I did not incur an error. Well looks like I owe you (again).............you have certainly raised my interst with any othe tweaks in my ini file that you may suggest. I am all ears!!!I am just curious is their a command to bring up the vector map in Fly 2? In my case I have to go to the top menu under window and engage it from their. If I recall in Fly, I pressed Ctl V and the vector map came up. Any suggestions?Richard

G'day Richard,Glad you are up and flying again.Now lets improve things for you.1. shift + M this will toggle your vector screen ON/OFFSome more changes for your Fly.iniallowdebuginfo=1 now by pressing the tab key you will see your FPS in lower right corner.press tab again and more info is displayed.press tab again and all the texture slot info is displayed.press tab again and the instrument bar is accross the bottompress tab again and you're back to normalvectorWindowShowZoomButtons=1This places two buttons for zooming the vector window in the lower right corner of the vector window. You may have to select "zoom buttons" in the drop down menu (drawCockpitArrows=0gets rid of the yellow arrows from the edges of the cockpit interior views,askUserForGraphicSettings=1This displays the graphic screen at startup where you can make changes to your settings,How did you get this to 0???Have you been into the editor as it is automatically set to 0 if you have. You can bring the screen back by pressing and holding the ALT key when you see the message at the bottom of the screen on bootup.useEnvLighting=1with this set you can select 'DirectX 8 T&L' in the graphic settings and see the sunrise and sunset effects on the aircraft paintwork.numDynamicScenery=10This enables you to select options/scenery and set up to 10 computer controlled aircraft. You have been flying in lonely skies mate. This will give you a little company. I wouldn't set this any higher than 10. The above is just a few changes that you might like to try.Have a great 2003 flying your sim.Cheers,Roger @YSSY

Hi Richard,Did you add a new scenery or use the FlyII editor, the last time you used FlyII?I got this yesterday and found it was something I had done while adding something to the scenery.
