Hello Eric,

 

please confirm you have installed:

  • MS Windows 7
  • .NET framework 4.0

Also have you tried running the application 'As administrator'?

 

Also make sure you input your TOW in xxxxxx format, like: 208800

Dear Eric,

I am guessing that your Windows is in French language; I've encountered similar issue before with the application crashing in this environment. Can you please confirm that TOPER crashes on startup? Does it load at all?

Windows is in french language and Toper crashes on start up it does not load all ...

Thank you for the info, I will look into it in the following couple of days and will get back to you with the solution. In the meanwhile as an alternative you could try and change your windows Regional settings to U.S. as a temporary solution until I resolve the issue.

Thank you for your patience

Dear Eric,
 
please download the TOPER 777 v1.0.1 Beta version update:

  • copy the downloaded file to the TOPER 777 installation directory (where TOPER B777.exe is located)
  • run the 'TOPER B777_v1.0.1beta.sfx.exe' file - the files get extracted automatically 

After applying the patch TOPER splash window should say: 'v1.0.1 beta'

 

Please let me know if this solved your problem.

Dear Eric,

Sorry to hear that it is still not working properly. Are you at least able to load TOPER after the update? Does the error occur on startup or after you press the 'calculate' button?

Also please make sure that the EXE file itself is in 'B777' folder: the debug error doesn't show it-perhaps that is what makes it crash.

am i the only with the problem  ?

Dear Eric,

 

so far the only thing causing issues is that your Windows is in French. Can you please answer my previous two questions, so I can understand better what is going on and rectify the problem:

  • Are you at least able to load TOPER after the update?
  • Does the error occur on startup or after you press the 'calculate' button?

​Thank you for your cooperation

Hi! I have the same problem!...

 

Dear Evgeny,

 

have you tried updating to TOPER 777 v1.0.1 Beta version? 

The problem comes from your Windows (like Eric's) not being in English language. I will try my best to sort this issue out in the nearest future.

 

Thank you for your patience and apologies for the inconvenience.

Hi,

 

TOPER is EXTREMELY buggy. I can get the performance data in some airports but sin some others is completely impossible. I get a hateful "Unhandled exception" "Index was outside the bounds of the array" most of the times. What about a HUMAN description of the error so that we may know what is wrong?  Using a database of the airports is very handy because we only have to input the ICAO code to get the data. But what about when a runway changes its number due to magnetic variation? How can we possible know we are inputting an inexistant number in the database? What if we use an airport not included in the database? I'm thinking for example in ZULS Lhasa Gongar (Tibet) which is not included in FSX by default. Maybe for those cases it could be useful to manually input the information of the runway, as in the first version. So, if I get one of those dreaded "Unhandled" erros I could manually input the runway data and make sure it's not a database mistake.

 

Next you'll find the description of the error when using this input information:

ARPT: KDEN

RWY: 35R

INTX:

COND: DRY

WIND: 360/11 KT

OAT: 5 ºC

QNH: 2991 HPa

Takeoff Weight: 192598 KG

Boeing 777-200ER/GE90-90B

 

NOTE: I've tried versions 1.0, 2.0 beta, 2.0.2 and 2.0.3

I found the cause of my error. I was entering mercury inches in the QNH instead of HPa.... Doh!!!

 

DOH-Homer-350x196.jpg

 

But even if it was my error, what about a "nice" and "polite" warning of the type: "The input is out of range. Please, check you are introducing HPa and not mercury inches" instead of the "ugly" unhandled errors?

 

 

Bests,

Dear Ramon,

The 'index out of array' issue is resolved but I didn't get the chance to upload the update yet. You can expect the update to be uploaded in the next couple of days. Airport database will also be updated every 3 months, and manual adding is also possible.

Kindest regards,

I have checked the 'ZULS' airport and it is included in the current database (airport database that comes with 'TOPER' is independent of the FSX and includes most of world airports). 

 

Please download the v2.0.4 from the update section.

 

Thank you for your feedback.

Hello, I have a few problems with the calculated performance for 777-200LR and 777-300ER (PMDG ), I mean in certain circumstances like a high airport as MMMX the calculations for TO and derate temperature seems to be excessive, maybe TOPER Tool is not taking in consideration the CLIMB gradient limit and only is taking the limitation for runway length. the result of this, it's a over derated take off's with a high speed rotation with a poor climb gradients with no more than 10 degrees of pitch for avoid the stall speed, this is not normal with 30 tons less than the PMTOW, any idea?

 

 

Regards

Dear Christian,

 

are you using DE-RATE and ASSUMED TEMPERATURE methods at the same time? 

 

200LR and 300ER types have massive engines and are in general not climb limited due to shear power of the power-plants. If you have issues with climb performance, try using lower flap settings like flap 5. This will extend the takeoff roll but improve climb performance.

 

Also please provide me with some examples, so I can make sure there is not a major bug in the system.

 

Regards,

 

Nikola

Hi,

 

I really like this application.

 

The only issue is that i use this on a Windows 8 tablet and i cant get it to maximize to full screen.Also is there any way that the text can be enlarged as its a bit hard to see on a 8" screen.Thanks.

 

Clinton Fernandes.

 

Dear Clinton,

 

welcome to the forums. Could you send me a screenshot of how TOPER looks on your tablet? I can perhaps fix it, so it fits the screen. Also I will be implementing text re-sizing feature in the next update.

My only problem is that when I calculate for the 777-300 I ALWAYS get an SEL of 70.  What am I doing wrong.  Happens no matter what the OAT or QNH is.
