    STB Airport compile stopped functioning

    For me, ORBX Central 4 is working great. I love the ability to install add-ons in whatever orbx library you wish, all outside the simulator. Unfortunate about Orbx Global still having to go inside, but that's a P3D issue right now. I didn't migrate, I actually downloaded and installed everything again. I have all the regions, TrueEarth Netherlands and a few airports, so I'd literally just queue it up and leave it to run. Can't say I had any troubles, and STB seems fine with the "DiscoveryPath" configuration. I don't think it matter to make runways, because the discovery paths are just of interest to P3D to find and register new addon.xml. Once P3D has done that, I expect make runways just picks that up from the various addon.cfg files just like it does today. It's good to see the LM add-on.xml being so widely used now. Thanks Simon

    STB Airport compile stopped functioning

    That does not mean it is producing correct and valid XML. Did you receive my email? Please contact me via info@supertrafficboard.com

    STB Airport compile stopped functioning

    Can you send me the file from the error message please, runways.xml? You'll find it in the simulator installation folder. Don't think this is related to ORBX Central, as it's Pete Dowson's tool that's generating the file. Thanks Simon
  4. Hi Sönke Please email me a copy of your order or invoice to FlightSimStore and I'll see what I can do. Thanks Simon

    Invalid Operation Exception

    The configuration wizard compiles the airport database, that's likely the source of the problem. I don't think you'll see it again, but it's a good idea to recompile the database whenever the scenery library entries relating to AI traffic schedules change in some way. In the latest update we started tracking the name of the file we think each flight comes from, and without compiling the database first that information won't be available. Simon

    UTC vs Local time

    That's one of the things Microsoft originally did right starting from FSX. The API is entirely even driven, so I don't have to keep asking "Has the timezone changed yet?" All I do is say to the simulator, "just let me know when it changes" and it does just as soon as that occurrs! There are other ways of interfacing with the simulator, dating back from FS2004 and before, where you have to keep polling addresses and see if they've changed. Few write software applications in any sphere like that anymore.

    UTC vs Local time

    Glad we got it sorted!

    UTC vs Local time

    Need some more context here: What time zone are you talking about in each case? 26 July is BST so that will be one hour ahead of UTC. Send me a trace as per Appendix C of the user guide if you wish, but it will be a best efforts basis. For the trace, I need a screenshot like the one above but with the FS Object ID column also presented, and tell me which flight looks wrong.

    UTC vs Local time

    FWIW I completely rewrote the implementation of time in STB V4 to use better C# classes than those available in legacy .net V2. That said, the concept is still entirely driven by what the simulator understands by time.

    Removed aircraft not showing up at gate

    Send me a verbose trace as per Appendix C of the user guide. I can only ask the simulator to create replacement AI over SimConnect, and the feedback in case of error is non-existant. Often it can be subtly things like strange characters in the aircraft title. With the trace, I can check whether anything is systematically wrong with STB. Simon

    UTC vs Local time

    I don't support V3.2 anymore, but what I recall (as per the other related post) is STB gets time from the simulator, including UTC and local time zone. The times are presented to you in the local timezone of wherever your user aircraft happens to be. Simon

    How to reset time?

    STB gets its time from the simulator. When you say the time is off, exactly which time are you talking about? Time is always presented in the local time zone of whereever your user aircraft happens to be. Simon
  13. That's definintely not the latest, check the forum for updates please
  14. What version and what update of STB do you see this?

    STB only showing approx 1hr ahead predictions

    Hi Chris So nice to hear from you again. Sorry to say there's no API into UTLive like there was for UT2, so you shouldn't really see any predictions as we simply don't have that information. All I can do is to reflect the AI in the simulator, with as much information about them as I can figure out. Thanks Simon
