Recommended Posts

Moved to Main Forum

Hello

I am running FS9 win7 64bits 

I also have RAASPRO and wanted to make the database

but make runways 4.697only finds 180 airports !!! 

 

the runways file is weird ... here is the beg of it

Please ALWAYS post support questions to the support forum! It has been moved for you.

MakeRunways does not invent scenery layers. Those are the ones you have listed! It is reading your scenery list from the SCENERY.CFG in the FS9 folder:

 CFG file being used is: "F:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\scenery.cfg"

which, for FS9, is certainly the correct place. So it will only operate on thjose sceneries which SCENERY.CFG lists, and so will FS9!

ok i know the software  does not invent scenery layers and they are correct

my concern is why the database dropped from thousands of airports to 180 ????

since i updated makerunways ?

it seems that it does not read the data anymore ?

how can i fix this ?

Er, you contradict yourself. You say "they are correct" then "it does not read the data any more".  It has read the data, look at the log, look at the entries, for example:

Area.001 "Décor par défaut" (Layer=1)
Path(Local/Remote)=Scenery\BASE
=============================================================================
Scenery\BASE\scenery\DEL_LB1B.BGL

 What is an add-on scenery doing at layer 1, the lowest priority? The first layers MUST be FS default layers, they underpin it all.

17 minutes ago, lolo97410 said:

my scenery cfg has 2056 layers 

Really? Does MakeRunways finish and create the assorted files?

It looks to me that your SCENERY.CFG is completely corrupted. MakeRunways does not write to ir at all of ocurse, it only reads it.

please help a lot of my addons are not working anymore

I'm surprised if any of your scenery is working at all!

ok

 

you were right about the cfg sceneries layers

i put them back into the appropriate orders

 

please bear in mind that i am not an expert in fs2004

english is not my mother tongue 

 

ok anyway now that everything is in order 

 MakeRunwaysdoes finish and create the assorted files

but they are not what as large as they used to be

 

it finds total airport 175 runways 474 !!!!

 

it used to recognize much much more !!!

 

please ! help :(

But that's what it finds!  What does FS9 show in the Scenery Library when it is loaded -- in the Settings somewhere? Does it list all your scenery layers?

Maybe you can ZIP up the Runways.txt file and your Scenery.CFG file and send them to me as attachments, to petedowson@btconnect.com. I really can't tell what you have wrong otherwise.

Before you somehow corrupted your SCENERY.CFG file, you mean? Because MakeRunways has not changed its scanning method for a long long time.

Ok apparently something must be wrong with my scenery cfg ???

I just emailed you the two files you asked for

Thank you very much for that :)

Ok all of my layers are appearing in fs9

weird ... i hope you will be able to tell me more with the requested files that i just mailed you

Merci a ou ! 

Thank you

Yes. You are missing ALL of the default scenery, the stuff which provides most of the airports and underlays for the add-ons.

I've sent you  the SCENERY.CFG file from a default install of FS9. Where are all the equivalent layers in yours?
 
The default scenery alone, when run with MakeRunways, gives 23760 airports and 53982 runways! Somehow you’ve destroyed your original scenery.cfg. Maybe FS9 will make another if you delete it. I don’t know. Or you can adapt mine. I don't know if your default layer names as in French?

Yes, but not the thousands available by default?

fs navigator also installed is making a database without error

MakeRunways also makes database without error.

Ok i looked at the secenery cfg you sent me

I also have a part in my disk where i keep a newly installed version of fs9

I used it to install add on so I can see clearly which files are installed an where

 

when I put makerunways in that unmodified FS it finds all the runways like it used to

 

When i declared a new scenario on fs9 i never use fs9 to declare it but rather cut ant past in the FS9cfg file

or using a  add on scenery config editor

I went to look in FS9 and I was very surprised that FS9 only counts half of the layers that are in the FS9 cfg

FS9 tells me 1312 layers my fs 9 cfg files counts 2065

I never paid attention to this before

All of my sceneries are installed in FS9 I can access to any add on airports which is in the 2065 Scenarios of the fs9 config

The other add ons are making databases without problem

Make runways used to do it too

First thank you to draw my attention to that !

Second how can I fix this ????

Thanks again

Whan I say how can i fix this, is ther a solution where i don't have to 

reinstall all of my fs9 !!!!! 

I do't know what happens, it used to work just fine before and I

always did the same way

Hope U will give me a solution as i miss RaasPro and need Runwaysmaker 

thank you for improving my knowledge of fs9

 

regards

Oh dear. I think you are asking for a lot of trouble. Many things install bits and pieces in all sorts of places. The only copy of FS9 which will work correctly with all the add-ons is the one you aren't actually intending to use!

The way to do what you want is just make a complete copy of the FS folder just after a first install. Then keep that as a "virgin" FS to compare with the other. But it is too late for you to do this unless you want to start all over again, from scratch, installing everything again.

The way you are doing it will mess things up quite well. I can't even imagine the mess most add-ons will be in, nor to begin to describe any solution EXCEPT: use the registered install, the one everything adds to, as your usable FS.  The other one, the one you currently use, is no longer trustworthy and I can't see any use for it now.

For an explanation of what MakeRunways is doing -- how it is getting different results for the two -- just see which "Scenery.CFG" file it is using. That's its only guide as to what sceneries to scan. And it will be the same one used by FS. The RUNWAYS.TXT file in the relevant FS folder will show the full path to the SCENERY.CFG being used at the top. in the first few lines.

no i do not installed bits and pieces all over !!!  I use this virgin fs once to see what

files it installs

But after that i ran a proper install in the FS9 !!!! 

Everything has been working  ans is still working

How do you explain the differences of sceneriesd layers in fs9 and in the fs cfg files ?

I cut and paste the beginning of the registered virgin installation in my fscfg files

it is still not working ....

You don't read what I write, do you? You don't seem to want to be helped! :-(

I didn't say YOU installed bits and pieces all over, but that add-on installers do!

But it isn't a "virgin fs" if you are installing into it! And are you comparing every single folder and file in FS? After installing in your so-called "virgin FS", are you then uninstalling there and re-installing in your "real FS"? If so, how are you working this? Many installers, FSUIPC included, install into the copy of FS which is the registered install. You cannot have more than one copy of FS registered in the registry!

But you said the opposite just a little way back, here:

Your problems are nothing whatsoever to do with MakeRunways and you are obviously in the wrong Forum. But I've been trying to help you and you simply ignore that help!

Your SCENERY.CFG files are different, or one has paths to sceneries which do not exist in one of the copies of FS.

I did suggest you simply check which SCENERY.CFG files are being used by MakeRunways in each FS copy, but evidently you cannot be bothered to do that. By comparing the two files you would clearly see if they are different. And also, just copying them over is no use without also copying all of the sceneries that are listed in the CFG as being local to that FS.

All I can do is repeat what I said before. Doing what you are doing is simply asking for lots of complicated problems. It really does not make sense.

I don't think I can help you any more. You don't seem to want my help really..
