SRTM to BGL FSX

I found this link to the tutorials on how to convert SRTM files to BGL's for FS9 and FSX, but I can't seem to find the FSX version of these tutorials (or the converter). Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Which link are you talking about?

I would assume resample is used to make the bgl, so in that case it would be almost the same for fs2004 and FSX. You would just need the right sdk for each version.

Hello Arno. I am talking about the links found here:
http://www.fsdeveloper.com/wiki/index.php?title=SRTM_To_BGL
In the fs9 tutorial, there is a link to an SRTM to fs9 BGL converter, so I would assume I need the fsx tutorial in order to obtain the link to the fsx version of the converter, as I have been unsuccessful of finding such a converter elsewhere.

Hi,

I have never used that tool. It seems some links in the wiki page are indeed broken.

From the introduction of the wiki page I guess the tool is for both fs2004 and fsx, but I'm not sure. Maybe some other user still has the file.
 
To deal with srtm data in Fsx is not too much difficult, just get the .Dem file, and resample, for this you need to get the .inf file, (you can take a look to the sample in the SDK folders),and add your data. and drop this txt file (inf file) on the resample tool. sorry fot my english :duck:

Agreed. Or if you can find a geotiff version it's even easier, as the inf file is very simple then.

You're English is fine :), and thanks, I'll try that. Is the nasa SRTM data in .dem format?

I will look at this too, thanks. My computer is giving me problems right now, but once I sort those out, I will look into the suggestions you both have given me. I might need more help as I've never done these things, but hopefully the SDK documentation is helpful enough.
