  1. Did you uninstall Microsoft Office 365 (or Office of any sort) in Windows 10? It might have deleted a dll that P3D uses. I had the same issue when I did that, and this solved it for me. http://prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=139844 http://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=140904 https://www.prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=129037 There are several topics about the subject (more that what I posted here), but the one I found to fix the problem eludes me at the moment (I'm on break at work, so limited time!)
  2. You are a machine Nico! I was just about to hop on a flight...now I can test this version out too! πŸ™‚
  3. That would be the logical choice, keeping fixes in the fixes xml! πŸ™‚ I already sent you the email before I saw the last message! Oh well! πŸ™‚
  4. Hi Nico, Like I promised in my message to you, here is my next suggestion for an 'enhancement'. πŸ™‚ Again, pouring over the log PSXT creates so I may add registrations to the 'registrations.xml' so that the right aircraft type comes up, I encountered a wall with one of them. The log showed the following: EJA610 EJA nul =d= FTX Cessna 172 Skyhawk N863CP As you can see, it was a Netjets flight (EJA610), but real traffic had no information on the registration number or an aircraft type, so PSXT substituted a 'default' C172. Now, this C172 was cruising at FL400!! πŸ˜„ My suggestion, could PSXT upon seeing a flight number only (EJA in this instance) substitute an aircraft that matches the airline EJA instead of a generic default substitute? So instead of some random C172, PSXT would toss in an EJA C56X instead (or any one of the EJA jets).
  5. Hi Nico, Here are the lines I added to 'airlines.xml' in AIGenerator: PVT: GOV: Like I said, LOTS! πŸ™‚ Let me know if you'd like me to email you the formatted xml file instead (you don't have an email address on your website). What I was under the impression is that AIGenerator used that list to generate the lines in 'AI_liveries.xml' and would fix the bad codes to look something like: <livery airline="PVT" type="B350" folder="1" cargo="false" title="AIGAIM_Ingram Industries Beechcraft King Air 350 - N111M" /> instead of: <livery airline="GA2J" type="B350" folder="1" cargo="false" title="AIGAIM_Ingram Industries Beechcraft King Air 350 - N111M" /> But like you pointed out, I was in error!! πŸ™‚ MAIW uses squadrons for their parking codes (all the GOV codes I gave you), and ORBX uses the aircraft type or some version of it for their parking codes (all the PVT codes). I could edit all the aircraft cfg files with 'AI-Aircraft Editor'. All in all, I have 22585 liveries all together, and changing all the MAIW in particular would take forever! πŸ™‚ In the long run, I think this would make your already awesome program much more compatible with the AIGAIM, ORBX and MAIW AI packs out there. Thanks again Nico. What you accomplish is amazing! Devin
  6. AIG switching those code would be awesome, but I also have many more (I just gave you an example of what I had). MAIW and the ORBX AI also do the same. It would take forever to change every code. Could a replacement type system be made in AILGenerator or PSXT similar to the way you have incorrect aircraft types corrected upon scanning? ie: if GA2J is found, an XML document directs the generated AI list for those codes to read β€˜PVT’? I have a whole list of them I can send you if you’d like. If I recall correctly, AIM isn’t too bad, but ORBX and MAIW use a lot of non airline codes for parking. Edit: on a lighter note, the only reason I noticed this was because I was flying yesterday and had a C172 above me flying at Fl400! PSXT had no type info from Realtraffic, so it substituted the C172! On Flightradar24, it was a C550! πŸ˜† So, basically, I was looking up the Registration in the log so that I could add the relevant info in the XML and noticed what I’m asking about above. πŸ˜‚
  7. Hi Nico, Just a quick question. I looked in the manual, and could not find any reference to this. What are the 'wrong data?' entries in the log? example: wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_Aviation Advisor Bombardier Learjet 45 - N887SG wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_Aviation Advisor Bombardier Learjet 45XR - N960AS wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_CarMax Bombardier Learjet 45XR - N45KX wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_Cargill Bombardier Learjet 45XR - N245CM wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_Executive Aircraft Charter Services Bombardier Learjet 45 - N451BW wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_Executive Aircraft Charter Services Bombardier Learjet 45 - N599TA wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_GEICO Bombardier Learjet 45XR - N425G wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_Koch Industries Bombardier Learjet 45XR - N145K wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_Koch Industries Bombardier Learjet 45XR - N245K wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_Koch Industries Bombardier Learjet 45XR - N345K wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_Koch Industries Bombardier Learjet 45XR - N745K wrong data?: GA2J;LJ45;1;0;AIGAIM_Koch Industries Bombardier Learjet 45XR - N945K Is it because of the 'GA2J' in this example? I have added 'GA2J' in my airlines.xml as 'PVT' in AILGenerator, so should PSXT not see GA2J as PVT?
  8. Lol! I’m an old rocker too...I’m a 70s generation rocker! But there are some good newer bands. Lol! since you linked Radar Love (great driving tune), try these two from Within Tempation to add to your driving tunes...and Sharon den Adel is really easy on the eyes! 😁 Faster Sinead
  9. Hey Nico, Tried out 9.2! It works awesome now! Could I make another suggestion? In the 'aircraft.xml', you may want to remove 'A223'. The AIGAIM package give the ICAO codes for the AIRBUS 200-100 and AIRBUS 200-300 as A221 and A223 respectively. These codes are wrong since ICAO assigned codes to the aircraft before Airbus took it over. They should be BCS1 and BCS3 respectively. (https://www.icao.int/publications/doc8643/pages/search.aspx) If A223 is in the 'aircraft.xml', the 'fixes.xml' doesn't seem to override it, thus keeping A223 which is a small Russian ultralight aircraft of which only 4 were built. So, with PSXT, no BCS3 aircraft will show up if a user is using AIGAIM unless some guy is out flying his ultra light!! lol! Removing A223 from the 'aircraft.xml' worked for me, and the chances of one of the 4 'A223' in the world popping up in PSXT is relatively nil!! πŸ™‚ ***** The hidden reveal boxes are done with the 'eye' button at the top of the box we type in, just to the right of the "Font" dropdown box (called spoiler when you hover your mouse over it). **** That's cool that you've been able to visit Ottawa and the area. I'm the same as your friends, living rurally east of the city (south of a town called Rockland). Ottawa has a very strong Dutch link since it was the city was where Princess Juliana sheltered during the occupation of the Netherlands during WWII. To this day, the Netherlands sends the city about 40000 tulip bulbs every year, and millions more are cultured and purchased. Those bulbs are planted all over the city and each spring the Canadian Tulip Festival is held to celebrate the strong ties between our countries. I've also had the chance to visit the Netherlands many years ago. Business took me there for a week, and I took an extra week for myself. I was mainly in the areas of The Hague, Eindhoven and of course Amsterdam....back in the day when KLM had a 747-400 flight between Ottawa and Amsterdam (with a stop in Halifax). In fact, my very first flight ever was on a KLM 747-400!! πŸ™‚ And speaking a my fondness of the Dutch, one of my top five bands I listen to is Within Temptation. Once COVID is brought under control, I hope to fly over to see them in concert since they don't come over to North America much. Europe is the place to go for metal/rock since the North American market has become more pop/hip hop and country music oriented. And, no, the North American train system sucks compared to Europe. Everyone drives! In fact, the Highway 401 in Toronto near CYYZ is the busiest Highway in North America (18 lanes!!). πŸ™‚ So, yes, some days it's nice to drive, other days it can be a packed mess of cars!
  10. No rush mate! I fixed that MD10 snafu. As for COVID-19, we have restrictions, no lock down...yet. Numbers are climbing, but the city I live in seems to be bucking the trend, and numbers have been small for the size of population (today we only had 140 new cases in a city of 1.1 million people). We’re mostly a government town being the capital city of Canada, so a fair amount of people are working from home. I’m an essential worker anyway (forensic scientist) so I still go into work full time. My commute times have been a breeze! Lol!
  11. Oh, and I forgot to add, there is an error in the 'types.xml'. Near the bottom, there is a stray ' " /> ', just above the line: <similar types="SUCO,SYCA,TIGR,UH1,UH12,ULTS,V500,W3,WASP,WESX,WG30" />
  12. Wow! That was quick Nico! So, I've been working with the new fixes.xml, and I think I'm doing something wrong, but I can't figure it out. I needed to correct the following codes from the AIGAIM-OCI package: Here is my fixes.xml (with the new entries, so you can incorporate them with your program if you'd like) πŸ™‚ My issue is that some codes are corrected, but others are not. I do restart AILG after editing the xml file. Here is my InvalidAircraftCodes.txt Any ideas? Here is my AircraftTypeFixes.txt for reference: Thanks! Devin
  13. Hey Nico, Hope you and your family and friends are doing well in these crazy times! Could I make a request/suggestion for AIL Generator? I was wondering if the 'Aircraft Type Fixes' (listed in Section 7 of the manual) could be made into an editable xml file much like the files in the 'data' folder. Using the AIGAIM program, there are some AI that do not have the proper ICAO codes, and they also don't match any of the auto correct values in AILG. I edit these config files manually so that AILG can identify them correctly. Unfortunately, when AIGAIM is updated, the aircraft types are reset to original values, thus requiring editing the cfg files again. With an xml file, users could edit the list that AILG uses to autocorrect the ICAO aircraft types. Thanks for considering. Devin
  14. People don't read anymore. They only see what they want to see. The original post from Asobo on Zendesk explicitly said that the details should be released today.
  15. Sydney’s parallel runways are much further apart, and offset from each other, meaning the threshold of one of the runways is at the halfway point of the other one. They are also separated by a bay of water. Also, the control tower in Sydney is in between the two runways and south of the single runway. πŸ˜‰
