    Hi all,

    I have been writing an FSX BGL parser using the specification by Winfried Orthmann, and that's reasonably complete now. But I need to support FS2004 BGL files as well, and somewhat surprisingly, I can't find any sort of specification for this version.. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Cheers.

    Hi,

    I assume you mean the BGL files made with BGLComp for FS2004? I believe the format is very similar to the FSX one, so you should be able to use the same specs.

    I think I have seen some FS2004 specs some time ago, let me see if I can still find them.

    Ah, I have found the spec with NewBglAnalyze. It turns out I was looking at old style files (identified by '01 00') thinking they were FS2004 style. I don't need to support the old format, so all is good. :)

    Thanks.
