This is the current development build for ADE and forms the base for the next series of updates. It has been updated with the latest set of program libraries from Arno as found in MCX. These support a number of functions in ADE including detailed footprints. The version of ADE-GP included should be the latest general release version from Don (gadgets). There are some small fixes and mods in this version including
  • Fix for error ADE generated when trying to decompile mdl files created by P3D v4.4
  • Possible fix for mouse wheel tilt events locking the ADE display
  • Minor tidying up of code
  • A new tool (in early stage) to allow the conversion of old pre FS9 airport bgl files into bglcomp based bgl files. Found under the Tools menu
This version can be downloaded from here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/g47495eez7zq441/ade_177_6986_beta.zip/file Please see the readme file for installation information

Thanks

I know I shouldn't be doing it but...
Hold down Ctrl and then move the mouse wheel.
Poof! Airport disappears, My location is now N00 00.000 E000 00.000 [005]
Right click is now disabled so I can't centre on ARP.
Drag is disabled as well so I can't change my location.

I agree that something odd is going on. It might be the bit of code I added to deal with mouse tilt events. I will need to check the code

EDIT

OK it seems to be that code is responsible. Since it does not fix the user issue it was intended to fix I will remove it entirely - update in a day or so

If you have already installed the beta from the post above, a small patch for the executable is here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/z3bmi4929y2wnih/ade_177_7004_beta_executable_only.zip/file Backup airport design editor.exe from the beta installation and replace it with the one in this download

I have just seen your logs. It seems to me that perhaps you copied the new version over the older one since I see it reports a missing method. That usually happens it the new installation is not clean. It also looks like a problem with the Custom Ground Poly code coming from Don (gadgets). I think he is travelling at the moment so it may not be possible to see what is happening until he returns.

The exception occurred in ASToFra.dll, not ADE-GP. It's possible, of course, that it's due to a parameter passed by ADE-GP, but the nature of the exception suggests otherwise. In any case, without knowing in detail what you were asking ADE-GP to do, there's little that can be done.

Overflow, if you post your .ad4 file, I'll attempt to see if its's an ADE-GP problem to the extent that I can using the limited tools I have available while travelling.

Jon, is the version of ASToFra.Coordinates shipped in the new beta the same as in the last production version of ADE?
