• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

get a error

I am using your CAT program and I can set the first animation like distance to plane . but when I try to set the second condition "like time of day" I get a error " run time error 340 control element 3 doesnt exist. I am using a ASM file from FSDS V3. any thoughts as to what is happening with this. I have included the asm file but this happens before I even load the file to compile.

I am using cat verison 1.2.11

Hi Woody,

Can you explain in a little more detail what kind of condition you are trying to set? Do I understand it correctly that you try to set two conditions on the "animation condition" screen (that is the first screen where you can enter conditions)?
Yes Arno that is what I am doing . on the first screen I set the condition for the animation as distance to plane. then as in you video I wanted to make a second condition so the door would not open up at night. but when i went to set the additional animation condition as the time of day when I clicked on the little Arrow to set the 028ch I got this error message. I found this out when I was working on the door animation tutorial. so I didnt use it . But it would be a good thing to have so you couldnt open the doors at night. If it doesnt work with FSDSV3 that is ok. I can get along with out it.

Hi Woody,

Thanks, I found it. I have fixed the problem now, so it will appear in the next release of CAT.
HI Arno
glad that you found the problem. Should I just redownload the Cat program over again or will the fix be in the next version.
thanks for all the time and all the good tools that you make for us to use to make Flight sim better.

Hi Woody,

You will have to wait for the next released version, before the bug gets fixed on your PC as well. I'll see if I can implement other things from my wishlist this week or else I will release the fix soon.
Hi Arno
Not a problem just glad that you were able to fine the trouble without a lot of work. I can wait for the new CAT. you make some nice tools to work with so not a problem.

Hi Woody,

The fix is available in the download section now.
