Makerunways r4.csv troubleshotings


Recommended Posts

Apreciated Pete Dowson

 Thanks for your excellent “makerunways” utility. I want to tell you about a problem about threeshold offsets in the final product r4.csv.

Conditions are:

P3Dv4.5, Makerunays version 5.1.1.0, LorbySceneryExport version 1.50.0.0, both executable “as Administrator” and installed in repar3D v4 directory. 

Example: airport LEPA, runway 06L / 24R (addon scenery)

PROBLEM

At runways.txt file appears perfectly detected both the threeshold of the runway 06L (primary threeshold = 1,312 ft), and that of the runway 24R (secondary threeshold = 850 ft). These are the exacts values of the airport scenery.

Runway 6L/24R centre: N39:33:17.3480  E002:43:37.0602  23.99ft
              Start 6L: N39:32:46.3467  E002:42:41.7865  31.99ft Hdg: 328.5T, Length 10719ft 
              Computed start 6L: Lat 39.547138 Long 2.710702
             
Offset Threshold primary: 1312 feet
              Start 24R: N39:33:40.2184  E002:44:35.0605  31.99ft Hdg: 329.0T, Length 10719ft 
              Computed start 24R: Lat 39.562496 Long 2.743220
             
Offset Threshold secondary: 820 feet
              Hdg: 58.510 true (MagVar -1.000), Asphalt, 10719 x 154 ft

 However, in the r4.csv file only appears the secondary threeshold in the last field, being “0” the corresponding to the primary one.

            LEPA,0061,39.547138,2.710702,24,59.510,10719,110.90,154,-1.000,39.554817,2.726961,820

            LEPA,0242,39.562496,2.743220,24,239.510,10719,109.90,154,-1.000,39.554817,2.726961,0                                                    

I am grateful in advance for your attention to my doubts

You started this subject in User Contributions, which is NOT for support questions, as it clearly states!

 

I'll try and find time to check this for you, but it may not for for a few days.  And in order to investigate I really need you to find a DEFAULT airport with a problem. I'm not buying add-on airports just for testing, especially not for P3Dv4 (I have plenty for P3Dv5).

I do have Sim-Wings LEPA. The BGL being:

Sim-wings Balearic Islands Professional V5\Mallorca\scenery\LEPA_ADEV5-OP01.bgl

If you want, ZIP the BGL your P3Dv4 is using (the filename will be listed in the headings for those runway entries in the Runways.txt file) and then I can check with the same file as you.

BTW I note that the 820 should apply to 24R, yet appears on the 6L entry.

Oh sorry, I will restart the topic at FSUIPC Client DLL if it is OK?

No! Not unless you are a programmer using thge .Net Client and have a question for Paul Henty. As you must surely see, I moved your thread to the CORRECT place, the actual Support Forum! Why are you only looking at the specialised, and mostly reference, sub-Forums? 😞

Hello again, Pete

Here are the links to bgl you requested and explanatory jpgs. (I can't put it in 20 KBs)

- LEPA_AFX-OP01.bgl

- LEPAmkrwys_06L.jpg, which shows the data in the scenery open with ADE

- LEPA_mkrwys_24R.jpg, just like the anterior in the secondary header.

I don't know why on r4.csv the last field on the primary track is the threeshold offset of the primary, but I've always seen it that way and it works well with the program it reads (AirHispania AHSBox).

Thank you very much again.

It should ZIP up small enough?

I'm afraid your link just opens my DropBox and shows the message:

The folder ‘/LEPA/LEPA_AFX-OP01.zip’ doesn’t exist.

Sorry, from your earlier post it seems to be the other way around -- the threshold of the secondary is attached to the entry for the primary.

Is your LEPA the Sim-Wings one? If so I'll check my P3Dv5 version to see if it's the same.

I wish this first post to the forum was constructive and I apologize for any mistakes.

No, it was fine, don't worry.

I checked it through, and it looks like a typo -- but only for BGLs of this age  The later ones, like the one i have for P3Dv5, didn't have the problem because it had different file layouts.

The result of the typo was that the correct value was written to the primary data, but then the secondary value was written to it too, overwriting it. So, one was missing and the one provided was the wrong one.

Please try the attached version (5.12) and let me know.  The correct threshold value should now be written to each of primary and secondary.

Sorry, Pete, my Avast says: Hmm... This needs a closer look. We've sent MakeRwys.exe to our Threat Labs for a torough analysys. It should take only a few hours. In the meanntime, we`ll keep blocking it.🤔

No problem, I will wait, try and let you know.

Grateful

Good news from Threat Labs: We didn't find any threats inthe MakeRwys.ese file you sent us.

What else?

And very good news with your Makerunways 5.12, too. It works fine in my system P3Dv4.5 and all runways are moved perfectly to r4.csv (clasic installation and addon-xml instalation sceneries)

Than you very very much, Pete.

Grateful

Okay, good. I'll update the download files to 5.12.
