The Letter A not showing up on DIRS

Recommended Posts

Are you having the same problem as I am; on the DIRS on the call signs for the aircraft like for example UAL1234 the A does not show up on any of the planes?  Actually it shows up when I first strart playing and then after a while the A's stop showing up. Has that happened to you and can it be fixed?  thank you.

In answer to hexzed's question, yes I do; I am new to this forum and not sure exactly how to do this; it says file cannot be bigger than 20 k... I did that but now it's not readable.. I noticed a few more things. The A disappears in both the DIRS and DBRITE screens. By accident I found out that when I exit the program and go back in the A comes back.. and then eventually disappears again. 

In answer to FeelThereAriel's question, yes it happens in both LAX and LFPG.

If you write one more post, the upload limit should increase.

Edited by EliGrim
In fact it is not increased but reduced and therefore larger uploads are allowed, my bad!

Hi BLB. Sorry it took a while to get back on here. See if you can read this image; you will notice on the DBRITE and DIRS  the letter A is missing on the Airline call sign. This only happens intermittenlty though.  Yesterday when I played it didn't happen... Any ideas?

 

Thanks

That's a weird one. It'll be specific to your PC. Maybe share the ouput_log.txt in the tower3d_data folder, next time it happens

to blb:  I am using Windows 10 but with Parallels on an IMAC.  Keyboard language is English as far as I know on a wireless logitech keyboard and I am using a Kensington bluetooth mouse

 

 to feelthere ariel: I don't know.... if I am running in admin mode.. I assume so since I am the only one. (NOT SURE.. SORRY) Default language is English as far as I know. 

 

Now in the beginning I had lots of issues to get this program going. I always loaded in Windows 10... not the IMAC.  ... But I first tried to install in C Drive ,... that didn't work; .. then I tried to install on an "X" Drive which is a data drive that works for both my Mac Files and PC files... that didnt' work; .. so finally I created a folder on the desktop... and that.... finally worked.... (I had so much trouble to install CDG airport which was the first airport I bought besides the LAX, PHL and the third one (the Island>.. I forget the name) ... but now finally that works... except for the " A" issue... and it comes so randomly I can't even pinpoint when.. usually when I start playing it works fine.. then suddenly it happens..  Now I have not messed with voice activation yet... I am just gaining some experience using the mouse... but loving this game 🙂

That looks like it could be the issue. @FeelThere?

Can you post the actual txt file?

Here you go; I assume this is what you wanted?  I have another clue.  When I close and pause the game and leave it like that for a while... and then resume it... the A comes back !!!????? This is so weird... I mean it is a good temporary fix....but why?  Thanks for all your help. !

Hi AshleeL

Are you saying that you are running Windows 10 virtualized within Parallels on the Mac?

It's quite possible there's a keyboard layout conflict of some sort.

What version of Parallels are you using? I strongly suspect that is the issue.

thanks

BLB

BLB, it is 12.2.0 .. so not the latest.  Thank you for your input... that is definitely a possibility. I know it's not major.. just annoying .  Leave it to me to come up with something nobody has exprienced before 🙂

It's all good. There are some very knowledgeable folk on this forum, so you may want to stick around. The search bar up on the top right will lead you to solutions for about 95% of whatever issues you may be experiencing.

You might also want to ask Parallels if you can upgrade directly from 12.2.0 to 15.x. Once you've sorted that side of things out, please test again and report back here.

All the best

BLB

PS I'm not one of the knowledgeable folk, I'm just like a darn dog that refuses to let go of a bone I'm chewing on!
