  1. Strange, that's the config I had. I checked the other boxes to, and finally several missing airlines showed up. Not sure what was going on, but it's as complete now as it will ever be. I'll always rely on the community pointing out errors and omissions particularly in the content, so thanks for keeping me honest with this. Simon
  2. Here's a list of the changes coming in the next STB update, currently undergoing internal testing. Will get it out there as soon as I can. Usual content (logos, airline and aircraft configurations), a new "Universal" option for content particularly useful when using multiple AI packages from different organisations and some user requested enhancements such as zulu time presentations. Watch this space! Summary of Changes in V4.2.2020.01900: • AIG OCI Content updated for all packages available to Flying-W as of 19/1/2020. • TrafficGlobal content updated for v1.1.1.2. • ORBX Australia and New Zealand AI content updated as of 19/1/2020 • Added “Universal” option as an “AI Package” choice. This should be suitable for any package and provide better content support to user with multiple packages. • Simulator related times may now be presented as Zulu Time as well as the local time zone in which the user aircraft is located. • Expanded logo support for airports. If a logo cannot be found for the user chosen airport, STB shows a "country" logo using either the first two characters of the code and failing that the first letter if either are available. • Add the US flag for ICAO codes beginning with "K" • Updated MakeRwys to Added support for altitudes containing floating point values in the runways.xml produced by MakeRwys (which are rounded to the nearest whole number by STB). • Fixed bug in synthetic “Arrived At” remark which resulted in an "at time" later than the current time to be calculated and displayed. • Code repository now GitHub based, source paths updated.

  3. Thanks, and seasons greetings to your good self as well. Do you really mean FSUIPC? That's not a requirement for STB. If you are talking makerwys, new versions will be supported in the next STB update which I'm working on now.
  4. There isn't a content package (logos etc) for FLAI. This isn't necessary, STB understands the difference between the day number scheme between different versions of the simulator. Can you send me a screenshot please showing the problem with the dates to put it into context for me please? Thanks Simon
  5. Binter Canarias is not offered to me through the OCI, no idea why really as I don't limit myself to OCI only packages, and have all the options for forum downloads switched on. As I use automation tools to read the aircraft.cfg and find a corresponding logo for each callsign, if there's no aircraft.cfg covering this guy he will be missing in action. I've added a manual record into my AIG configuration for this. Interestingly that revealed a bug in the automation which was occasionally failing to process the last airline in an aircraft.cfg so some other airlines have now shown up as requiring logos and configuration. New packages coming at some point this week! Thanks Simon
  6. Is this the airline you are referring to? As you can see, they are showing up for me just fine but note the callsign of the airline concerned ("MORABEZA"). I can see callsign "Binter" in wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binter_Canarias), but I don't see it in AIG. Is this an OCI package? Can you tell me which package please, and a screenshot of the flight details screen showing the problem? Thanks.
  7. I had some time, so I've just uploaded logos, airline and aircraft configuration for everything I could download through AIG One Click Installer to 22/12/2019. Instructions as per those provided in the first post above.
  8. Next update of AIG content before the year is out!
  9. Sorry for the delay Cargo flights don't use ICAO/IATA in STB as there isn't a passenger flight number, so it's quite normal to see "missing" entries. The "CARGO" desgination should be enough. If it isn't, please set up a verbose trace as per Appendix C of the user guide, reproduce the problem, send me the trace files and point out an example that's wrong please (screenshots are good) Thanks Simno
  10. What are the callsigns involved please? Can you show me how those look in your airline database? Thanks Simon
  11. This does sound familiar. Which updates have you installed on STB? Thanks Simon
  12. At the present time we are not compatible with MakeRwys V4.891, which is available from Pete Dowson's website. If you experience this problem, please use an older version of MakeRwys such as that supplied by STB (V4.871). Longer term, I will address this issue in an STB update. Please see the following for the information on the underlying change: And the error from STB/STB-DS if you do use the new version:

Thanks Tak for drawing my attention to this issue. Simon
  14. Hi Tak It seems to be something to do with the airport elevation being a decimal number rather than a whole number. Can you send me your runways.xml file please, found in your Prepar3D installation folder? Thanks Simon
  15. Hi Aussie That's one awesome looking setup! Other customers have achieved a vertical (or "portrait") format for STB by physically rotating the screen through 90 degees so it is taller than it is wider. Then in windows, they rotate the display so that Windows draws everything in the correct direction. It's in Display Settings, "Display Orientation". You can try the portrait related values until your desktop looks the way you want it. Not sure how STB will react initially if previously used in Landscape, but it will present in portrait to match what Windows is doing. Then it's just a case of resizing the window and the columns within to match your requirements. Looking forward to a picture of this setup with a portrait presentation! Thanks Simon
  16. Hi Brian This one's an easy one, there is only one version of STB for Prepar3D V4. And that is "STB V4 for Prepar3D V4". In the more recent updates, I've added quite a bit of support for AIG, because I love their stuff to! Thanks Simon
  17. That's the correct procedure. You can add the entries from scratch, or you should be able to right click on the flight concerned on STB and choose configure aircraft from the menu. The latter option is a slightly quicker way of doing it.
  18. It's unfortunate that some AI mdoels tie the spoilers to the flap settings, they should be independent systems? In any case, the flaps handle is the appropriate value to set and it's important to set it against the aircraft involved. After making such a change, restart the simulator to ensure the new handle value is being sent at the appropriate time. If it still does not work, send me a verbose trace please with a screenshot of STB showing which aircraft it is. Simon
  19. It's most likely a problem in the simulator itself or with the AI you are using. STB is driving this capability through SimConnect, which is suppose to provide a level of isolation between Prepar3D and me. That said, we don't live in a perfect world so while the simulator should never crash in response to a SimConnect request, it sounds like it is. In any case, the only people whom can fix this is Lockheed Martin, and the only way we could get them to even look at it is to reproduce the problem in a predictable way, and then without any other addons apart from STB (including AI packs). However it does not sound like you've been able to find that. Maybe there's a AI model in the background of your AI View that is causing a problem, perhaps through an invalid aircraft.cfg or MDL file? Very difficult to tie such things down. The only other thing I can suggest is whatever AI view you are using, try one of the others and see if that is any more relable. For example is it always the default View AI command, or the Extended AI Views or the observer based views where this happens? Simon
  20. I've updated STB with the latest content for AIG, specificaly the "One Click Installer (OCI) method" however it should be relevant no matter how you use your AIG Traffic. This is up to date for all airlines up to Monday night, 16th September 2019. As AIG continues to add new airlines, I'll follow with STB. This will eventually make it's way into a regular STB product update, but I imagine the next one of those is some way off. How to configure STB with Additional AIG Content Simon
  21. Flaps handle zero should fix it. However you've already tried that, though you don't say how. Try setting the default value to zero: 1) Settings Notebook 2) Commands Tab 3) Default Departure Flaps Handle Setting -> 0 4) Check you are not overriding this with a value specific to 777: a) Objects Tab b) Edit Aircraft radio button c) Find any 777 entries in the list, and make sure departure flaps handle is also zero for those. 5) Save Settings, restart STB 6) Observe an AI aircraft at pushback and see what happens. It is important you start watching BEFORE TAXI. Thanks Simon
  22. OK, there's something curious about the way this aircraft is responding to SimConnect commands. If this fails even with "flaps position 0" set in the settings notebook for the aircraft concerned, I can probably change the code not to set the flaps at all when we are configured with 0. As it stands, we send a flaps command with whatever the configured value is. I'll look into it. Thanks Simon
