• 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.

BGL2XML v1.7 - Unknown ID 62 found in airport record - Prepar3d v4

Hi all,

I'm using a batch script with BGL2XML v1.7 to decompile some files in Prepar3d v4, but for one file I'm getting the following message (APX88390.bgl - have tried to attach a copy to this message).
The cmd window is waiting for me to hit a key to conitnue but because my batch is running silently it looks like it's hung.

Unknown ID 62 found in airport record

Press any key to close

(ps I've removed most of the path here to save space)

Obviously I can run the scripts visibly and keep and eye open for the problem but I wondered if there's a fix for it or perhaps a cmd line switch to automatically close the window for me?

Id 62 (0x3E) is a new identifier for some P3Dv4 runway records with additional information (see P3Dv4 SDK)
Probably BGL2XML has not yet been updated for extracting these records.

Ah! That sounds promising :)

Does anyone know if there's an update planned for BGL2XML?

Yes, as it happens I will be working on it in a week or so. ADE is updated but I need to fix my other tools.
 
H Jon,

Did the fix for this find it's way into a new version? Thanks!,

Regards

Ian
 
Sorry not yet. I have been tied up in a lot non ADE related issues. I am currently travelling and will not be back at my development computer until next week
