    No User aircraft data at start up

    Very interesting setup, sorry to say that running two clients at the same time isn't a supported configuration. But don't panic, that's not to say it won't work and I won't try to help, but please try to reproduce this problem by shutting down one of the clients and just using the other. If it does still occur on a single client, please do the following: 1) Set up a "Verbose" trace as per Appendix C of the user guide. 2) Reproduce the problem, describing the steps you took (and the airports involved) as you did above. Please send screenshots of the dialogues once you have entered values but before you press the "OK" button. 3) Close STB, send me the trace file. Thanks Simon

    No arrival for user aircraft

    Thanks - I must have fixed this issue at some point then forgot about it! I'll take a look at the flight number. Can you send me the aircraft.cfg (or sim.cfg) from the user aircraft you are using please? Thanks Simon

    STB V4 for Prepar3D Next Beta

    lol, "the road to nowhere" or "the road to hell", take your pick 馃槈

    No arrival for user aircraft

    While investigating your problem I noticed the user aircraft was being counted twice in the airport summary, so it would count +2 departures or +2 arrivals for the airports concerned. That's fixed in the above beta, so it's already been a fruitful journey. Simon

    STB V4 for Prepar3D Next Beta

    Thanks - it's a long road I'm travelling but the journey has begun. Simon
  6. Thanks - I'm always holding my breath until the first good report from the field! Simon

    No arrival for user aircraft

    Thanks, however I can't reproduce this one. Would you be interested in installing the latest beta update and checking whether your problem exists there? If it does, that's a better place to debug it from and any fixes would require this level of code in any case? If the problem does exist, please set up a "Verbose" trace as per Appendix C of the user guide, reproduce the problem and send me the trace file please. Update is here: Many thanks Simon
  8. Here's the next beta update for STB for Prepar3D V4, with the following changes since the last official update: Summary of Changes in V4.2.2018.34400 路 Update Make Runways utilities to V4.8.6.4. 路 Deploy all files associated with Make Runways, not just the .exe file. 路 Added Lorbi-SI redistributables to the Make Runways package included with STB. 路 Added dialog describing the Make Runways related redistributables with links to author webpages and readmes. 路 Removed MakeRunways prerequisite info dialogue. A separate Lorbi-SI install to support Make Runways is no longer mandatory. 路 Tolerate the presence of P3D "AddOn" related entries in the scenery library configuration file. 路 Completed the new Content Error Reporting system to capture STB errors relating to simulator content (Scenery Library, SimObjects, Schedules and Airports). 路 Added debug to catch and better explain any exceptions occurring during instantiation of the P3DFileHelper class that are directed to the Windows Event Log 路 Added atc_type and atc_model values to Flying-W Invisible Aircraft to avoid Simulator and STB Content Errors. 路 Fixed incorrect aircraft counts at airports mentioned in a user aircraft flight plan. Summary of Changes in V4.2.2018.26800 路 Phase 1 of the STB Content Error Reporting system. Content errors are problems with data content such as errors with logos, airports or traffic schedules. Content Errors can be suppressed or reported in dialogue via Trace Settings in the UI. Phase 1 adds logo related errors to the reporting system. 路 Fixed bug where calculating departed at times for departure remarks could cause an exception. If insufficient data exists to make the calculation, it no longer happens. 路 Bug Fix: Predicted and materialized AI flights failed to reconcile and created duplicate flights on the board for schedule repeat periods less than a day and for the 2nd or greater repeat period within a day. 路 Bug Fix: Added exception handling to the methods that handle callbacks from Simconnect that would otherwise fail silently. Bug Fix: Obtain user SimObjectID from simulator instead of defaulting value. 路 Bug Fix: Correctly round schedule times to the nearest minute instead of always rounding down. You can download the STB Client update from here: http://bit.ly/2UFjRGq And the STB Data Server combined update and installer from here (only required on the Prepar3D computer when running STB Client on a separate computer: http://bit.ly/2B6AYrD Lots of good stuff here, and it's no longer necessary to install the Lorby add-on organiser as a pre-requisite for Make Runways (although there are other good reasons to do so beyond STB). Until next year, happy Christmas and a prosperous new year! Simon

    Can you send me the .pln file please? When I try to load this plan by copying it to a file, Prepar3D tells me:

    No arrival for user aircraft

    Hi Joe, need some more information please? 1) What version of STB, and which simulator? 2) Is there any particular arrival airport it does not work for, or all? Please send a screenshot of what the arrivals screen looks like? 3) Please post the flight plan file here? Thanks Simon

    STB V4 for Prepar3D and Prepar3D V4.4

    Always good to hear, thank you. LM is doing a good job of preserving the quality of the interfaces STB uses.
  12. I've tested the last few beta STB builds with the latest update available for Prepar3D and not found any problems. Simon
  13. Coming soon, just need to test STB to STB-DS connection. In the meantime, here's the new stuff: Summary of Changes in V4.2.2018.34000 Update Make Runways utilities to V4.8.6.4. Deploy all files associated with Make Runways, not just the .exe file. Added Lorbi-SI redistributables to the Make Runways package included with STB. Added dialog describing the Make Runways related redistributables with links to author webpages and readmes. Removed MakeRunways prerequisite info dialogue. A separate Lorbi-SI install to support Make Runways is no longer mandatory. Tolerate the presence of P3D "AddOn" related entries in the scenery library configuration file. Added a new Content Error Reporting system to capture STB errors relating to simulator content (Scenery Library, SimObjects, Schedules, Airports and Logos). Added debug to catch and better explain any exceptions occurring during instantiation of the P3DFileHelper class that are directed to the Windows Event Log Added atc_type and atc_model values to Flying-W Invisible Aircraft to avoid Simulator and STB Content Errors. Fix for STB operated flights never begining their departure cycle. Fix for incorrect "Next Flight Departure Time" vthat occurred in the flight details dialogue under certain circumstances. Simon
  14. The next beta will have some code to better detect this kind of error. Meanwhile there's only been one report of this problem so far. Simon
