I have recently installed an update to the Aerosoft FSX Frankfurt scenery which shows the new runway 25R and redesignates the other 25 runways to C & L.

Unfortunately after running FSC database several times the update doesn't show on FSC making it difficult to go there online! It just stays as the original scenery.

I can see the new runway in FSX so I know the update worked.

Hi Volker

Sorry for that. FSC build is 8.6, FS type FSX, system Windows 7 64 bit, FSUIPC 4.82

I dont completely understand what you are saying Volker can you explain please? Choose airport - where? Is that in FSC and if so where? If you can point me in correct direction I will of course explore!

Hi Tony,
Use the window's search utility and search for a file AF2_EDDF*. BGL.
If you have found the file, move the file into the folder ... \ Addon Scenery \ scenery. DO NOT COPY THE FILE.
Run the DBManager again.

Hi Volker

Thanks very much for the suggestion but unfortunately it doesn't work. There is no AF2_EDDF*. BGL in theAFD file but there is a AF2_EDDF*_without_static_aircraft. BGL so I used that one but no use I am afraid still nothing showing!

Regards

Tony

Hi Tony,

in your case, move the file AF2_EDDF*_without_static_aircraft. BGL into the folder ... \Addon Scenery\scenery. DO NOT COPY THE FILE.
Run the DBManager again.
If this not works, please let me know in which folder you found the file: AF2_EDDF*_without_static_aircraft. BGL ?

I checked out this some more , if it helps! When I put the bgl file in Add on Scenery then the new runway doesnt show at all in FSX. When I put it back in the Aerosoft AFD file it does show ok!

Also FSX recognises the new runway designations because when you use "Choose Airport" option at start up FSX gives you 25L and 25C as options (before these were of course 25R & 25L). However interestingly it doesn't give you the new 25R as a starting option! When you start FSX the new runway is certainly visible.

FSC shows only the original runway designations.

I understand that this new runway is for Arrivals Only but still you need it with the ILS information to land there.

Apparently this update is very much "work in progress" as an interim measure whilst they produce a brand new Frankfurt programme.

I hope this helps

Hi Tony,

Run the Database Manager again.
After done, send me the following file FSCDBM_FS10.LOG to my e-mail address. These can be found on the homepage www.FSCommander.com .
