    LOM Issue

    Problem Solved I found the problem. I pointed to the incorrect BGL to XML folder. It was trying to use "BGL2XML" instead of "bglxml". Once I pointed LOM to the correct folder, it worked fine! I figured it must be something I did after reloading all my software, as a result of a hard drive...

    LOM Issue

    The Library Object Manager is installed on a different drive than FS9. I do not have ADE installed in the same folder structure. I attached a library file, although it won't import any library..even those that it had imported in the past. Do I need to return to an older version?

    LOM Issue

    I have been using LOM for several years with no problem. Lately, when I try to import a library file, nothing shows in any of the fields on the form. Here is what I do: select Import>file type>library>file in the "New Library" form I choose the xxxx.bgl and click open. The path and file I...

    ILS approaches at KLGA

    The stock ILS approaches at KLGA appear to be messed up. The ILS approach to runway 13 picks up the localizer backcourse to runway 31, so it appears as a backcourse with no glide slope. I fixed that by moving the 31 localizer to dummy runway at some other location. That's fine because the real...

    ILS frequencies in GPS

    Both, added new runway and renumbered existing to accommodate new. I know that the ILS frequencies are in the runway properties. I decompiled the AFCAD file and found that they were there (makes sense, since the frequencies are inserted using AFCAD). BTW, I used AFX to modify the airport. The...

    Problem with CR Course in miss approach code

    Sorry, I can't help you out with the code. I just wanted to point out that if you use bglcomp.exe from the command line (dos prompt) it will give you good hints regarding the error that causes the code not to compile. Simply dragging and dropping the code onto the bglcomp icon is convenient, but...

    ILS frequencies in GPS

    I have modified all of the hub airports for my VA. I have recently added runways and approaches to those airports that have had new runways added since FS2004/FSX were released. One of our pilots just pointed out to me that the ILS frequencies for the new runways does not appear in the FSX GPS...

    I messed around too much and broke FSX!

    Agree! Both a broken logbook and a corrupt FSX.cfg will lock up FSX. For either one, delete the respective file then restart FSX. FSX will create new files. I have personally experienced the corrupt FSX.cfg and I know of others who have had the logbook lock up FSX.

    (FS9) Cargo parking problems.

    Again quoting Lee Swordy: "FS uses the following criteria to decide where to park an AI aircraft. These criteria are in order from most important to least important: 1. Parking Codes (KLM, AAL, etc.) 2. Parking Types (Gate, Ramp, Cargo, etc.) 3. Parking Areas ( Parking, Gate 1, Gate...

    (FS9) Cargo parking problems.

    Is there enough GATE and RAMP parking for the other aircraft? Since those other aircraft have parking types as GATE,RAMP; if there are not enough other GATE or RAMP parking, they will be sent to the Cargo ramp. According to Lee Swardy's help file: "Size words such as "Heavy" in "Gate Heavy"...

    Airport Facilitator X

    The previewer is one of the reason I went with AFX; but ever since I upgraded FSX to SP2, the previewer will not work correctly. Of course I have a number of other issues with FSX, so FS-2004 is my primary flight simulator, so I use AFX extensively for that. I also found that mixing AFX with...

    Can't create background for new runway

    That would also require "painting" the underlying grass, as well as taxiways. I'll just have to explain in the instructions (to my VA members) to be sure to remove the Atlanta scenery from the scenery library. Thanks for your help.

    Afcad 2.21

    Airport Facilitator X (AFX) by Flight One Software will enable you to edit/create airports (including taxi signs) for both FS-2004 and FSX. I believe the cost is $30 (US). I don't run Windows Vista, so I can't speak for that. If you want Freeware, then try SceneGenX, which also works for both FS...

    Can't create background for new runway

    Is there any way to modify this airport to provide a background for the new runway that is similar to the rest of the airport? AFCAD will place the runway/taxiways, etc. but having them sit on top of the aerial image is not very realistic. EDIT: I believe I found what I must do...remove the...

    Airport Facilitator X

    I use AFX for both FS9 and FSX. I find it is easier to use, for what I use it for. But the main reason I have stuck with it is that I still do a lot of FS9 scenery work for my VA. FSX Planner and ADE, to the best of my knowledge are for FSX only. I use Instant Scenery for object placement. It...
