Betatester wanted

Recommended Posts

Hi allI wrote a small program "NOCRASH" which analyses BGL-Files and removes the crashcode and corrects the "No texture"-flag. Now you can use this files with FSIMP. This tool only works with the old BGL-Format (but there are still a lot of FS2004-sceneries made with the old MAKEMDL-Tool - even GMAX-created - and my program gives a warning if the File is in the new BGL-Format)I tested it with the FS2002 Vienna-scenery from Johannes Loy, available at AVSIM (look at added screenshots).Does anybody want to give it a try ? Let me know in this forum.I also wrote a program to convert new FS2004-BGL-files to the old Format, so you can use them in FS2002 or older and therefor convert them wirh FSIMP. The converted BGL-files work perfect in the older MSFS-Versions, but I still have some problems using this files with FSIMP. If I can solve this problems, I will also make this program available.Harald

Hi allyou can find the beta-version in the attachment.To use the Program you have to open a CMD-Window. At the commandprompt type: c: NOCRASH infile.BGLwith infile.BGL being your BGL-File.If you start the Program with c:NOCRASH infile.BGL d the program additionally shows every processed BGL-command in the commandwindow.The converted BGL-File is stored in infileFLY.BGL whith infile.BGL being your BGL-File.If you see the Lines!!! Byte xxx removing crashcode !! or!!! Byte xxx correcting SET_MATERIAL !!!in your commandpromt-window my program has found some BGL-Code that FSIMP cannot handle. In this case replace this file in the FS2xxx.....scenery-directory with the converted one before using FSIMP.If the BGL has a wrong format you get the message:New BGL formattype, use BGLCONV orsorry, wrong BGL formattype.The program BGLCONV is not available jet.Harald

Harald,Those pics look really nice!I recently had to make some room in my HD so I ended up deleting all my FS2000 stuff... :-(This might be a good excuse to restore it...The tool you describe sounds great! Hope you can fix the problems...Thanks for all your work!Alexhttp://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/banneraa.jpg
