  1. Glad it's fixed. Useful utility for helping with these sorts of problems is "currports". It will tell you which applications have which ports open so you can see whether Prepar3D and STB Data Server are open for business. Simon
  2. Did you intend to post something, because it looks like we lost it?
  3. Here is the latest official update for STB V5 for Prepar3D V5, featuring Hot Fix 2 compatibility and the latest content for AIG and TrafficGlobal. You can download the STB Client Update (V5.0.2020.17900) update from here: https://bit.ly/2B8lR5a STB Data Server (only required on the Prepar3D computer when running STB Client on a separate computer), also has an update (V5.0.2020.17800), available here: https://bit.ly/2YCqkpw The update is only available as described above initially, it will be added to the website and the update checking in the product at a later time. Summary of Changes since Base Product Release: Prepar3D V5 Hotfix 2 compatibility. Content Improvements (logos and configuration): AIG OCI for all packages available to us as of June 26th 2020. Traffic Global Content V1.1.5. Changed departure flaps handle value for FSPXAI 777 and A340 families as used by AIG to avoid spoiler and reverse thrust activation. Fixed error in reporting the number of AI to be deleted when optimizing parking flights at the selected airport. When the AI callsign is “NONE”, the aircraft make and model are used substituted. Offer “_ALL” as an airport selection option even when no AI are presently in the simulator (to see the user flight); Corrected NLS text for AI Left Body View Command and AI Right Window View. Configuration bug fix: If [DiscoveryPath] appears after a [Package] group in the add-ons.cfg file, STB was failing to recognize the [Package] as a valid group. Added Enabled AI Departure Flaps Global On/Off setting, for use when STB’s operation of flaps at taxi-out causes problems in the AI animation of many aircraft. Fixed bug in de-install process that prevented the STB add-on.xml files being properly removed. Updated MakeRwys utility to V4.91. Note: to get the departure flaps changes, you need to reload the aircraft configuration either through the configuration wizard (starting over with a new configuration, or loading the file through the settings notebook, Objects tab. Load either the Universal or AIG Aircraft file from the samples folder in your install directory. Let me know how this works out for you! Many thanks Simon
  4. Here is the latest official update for STB V3 for Prepar3D V4, with the latest content for AIG and TrafficGlobal. You can download the STB Client Update (V4.2.2020.17900) update from here: https://bit.ly/3dIoGqt STB Data Server (only required on the Prepar3D computer when running STB Client on a separate computer), also has an update(V4.2.2020.17800), available here: https://bit.ly/3dD6QW5 The update is only available as described above initially, it will be added to the website and the update checking in the product at a later time.

In the meantime, next in the tubes is an update for Prepar3D V5. Many thanks Simon
  5. Yes sorry to say it will. Prepar3D just like FSX before it does not provide an interface for deleting any AI, so we have to do it the hard way by creating one. Only trouble is the entry point can move around between Prepar3D versions. Sufffice it to say I don't agree with their decision, but I have to live with it. Simon
  6. Holi, It's practically the same code between V4 and V5. From the client computer, please send me My Documents/SimConnect.cfg and TrafficBoardFrontEnd.exe.config from the STB installation folder. Please check for simconnect.cfg in the STB installation folder also, there must not be one there. From the P3DV5 PC please send simconnect.xml (P3D ProgramData or AppData) and StbDataServer.exe.config I'm not familiar how those others use simconnect as I'm not privy to their source code, so don't wish to draw too many parallels.
  7. If you don't mind me jumping in here, you've installed STB V5 for Prepar3D-V5? And STB-DS V5 for Prepar3D-V5? Sorry if I am pointing out something already known to you. STB V4 may work to an extend with V5, but not compatible and not supported. Thanks Simon
  8. Looks like an update will be required to STB for Prepar3D V5, as in hotfix 2 the "Delete AI" entry point has moved again. I suspect in the mean time any attempt to delete AI via the STB Simulator Plugin will crash the simulator. Look out for the update around the weekend. Simon
  9. Sorry to save I've never seen an error like this one before. It may be something to do with configuration as this works elsewhere, so let's start by having a look at that. 1) From your STB PC, please send me TrafficBoardFrontEnd.exe.config from the STB install folder. 2) From your STB-DS PC (Prepar3D), please send me StbDataServer.exe.config from the STB install folder. If this has worked before for you, something must have changed locally. Thanks Simon
  10. This is something to do with one of the airline logos, probably one that's corrupt or an invalid format. I am not able to tell which logo, so could you do the following please? 1) Set up a verbose trace as per appendix C of the user guide 2) Reproduce the problem 3) Close STB, and send me the trace file. Thanks Simon
  11. Just Flight and PCAviator have V5 now live as well, completing the set.
  12. I tested informally, and I observed the B772 and A346 showing the problem. Both are the freeware versions of the AI models I think. Will need to do a more complete test of the major models and make some config changes, but please contribute anything you find as well. The "Depart Now" command is very helpful here for looking at particular models. Thanks Simon
  13. What you are seeing looks normal to me if you are missing a currently compiled airports database. Let's deal with your other problem first, and then see how it informs this one.
  14. STB knows how to read the Prepar3D AddOn infrastructure so can find AIG or any other add-on for that matter. Please set up a verbose trace as per appendix C of the STB user guide, compile the airport database, close STB and then send me the trace file. Please tell me where you think the AIG folders are (i.e. the OCI Settings) Thanks Simon
  15. Yes, working fine here. You'll only get full flight numbers after compiling the airport database. The simulator only publishes them over SimConnect ones an AI aircraft is something other than parked, which is a legacy all the way from FSX.
  16. Peter, Please contact Aerosoft, all I do is supply the materials to them and ask them to update their website. Simon
  17. STB-DS for V5 is out there, I just loose touch of where all the touch points are such as the place you visited. www.supertrafficboard.com/downloads/stbds_p3dv5.zip Thanks for finding my oversight. Simon
  18. I'm adding a setting to enable/disable the AI departure flaps command in the next update. The best way is to configure the departure flaps handle setting for individual aircraft, but this setting will globally enable or disable the capability. If this is happening a lot in your AI package, it might be worth switching off entirely. I don't remember anything specific, but I'm sure I've seen some AI models that do departure flaps without needing STB to help out.
  19. Not sure what's with the icon, I always get a few applications on my desktop loosing their icons. Can't do notification tray as it causes lots of problems in the functionality, but auto minimize on startup is already available: Just make sure the option is checked, and next time STB-DS is started it will apply. The only exception is when you run the configuration wizard in the same session, in which case the minimize is postponed to next time. Simon
  20. This is STB working as designed and configured. STB sends a "deploy a bit of flaps for takeoff" command at the start of taxi-out, this was done long before any AI packages had the capability to do so independently. The amount of flaps is set in the aircraft config section of the STB Settings Notebook (simulator "flap handle position", which can be 0 through 6). For most aircraft I supply pre-packaged configurations for, this is 2 or 3. However for some AI models, flaps are linked to other systems such as reverse thrust. I don't know why that is, but whatever the reason you need change the flaps handle value in STB to zero for the aircraft concerned. If you can tell me the exact type and model as STB understands it I can update the source material. Thanks Simon
  21. This has beeen resolved. If anyone else experiences it, please contact me directly. As far as I know it's just an issue in the older STB V3 for Prepar3D-V3 and is specific t the way that version was built. Thanks Si,om
