Title: V3.05 Available
Post by: AirNav Development on September 18, 2009, 05:44:56 PM
V3.05 is now available with all the reported problems corrected (we hope so).
As usual replace your existing file.

As copied from the previous thread:
We ask our beta testers for patience if any error is found. It is a very difficult task for our development team to try to have this software working on so many computer systems, graphic cards, Windows versions. Anyway we believe we are getting closer to an end.

Please send your reports to this topic:

First impressions are very good - stable, my routes problems seem to be fixed, and the ... problem hasn't resurfaced yet. Flags and MyLog seem fine, and it seems to be much less processor-intensive than recent versions. It seems to be locking on well to the selected flight on the map, and the photos/data panel is responding instantly to each flight clicked, where there had often been a long lag before.

I personally regret the passing of the Aircraft History count, but if it was holding things up, then I realise that it had to go.

We should of course leave it for a while to see if any problems emerge, but this looks to me like a candidate for release :-)

We are having problems (again) with our email server so alerts might have problems during the next hours.

Post by: abrad41 on September 18, 2009, 08:11:14 PM
Looking very stable here, been running now for about 2hrs, lets hope it keeps that way.

The only thing I have found is in mylog, the flights history is showing (1), but no flights showing, this the same problem as we were seeing in my flights (now corrected).
If it was me, I would leave this alone and see if we get any moan's.

That is good news. We will wait for user feedback until Sunday night and after that we plan to release this version to the public (still as a beta). So please do your best to find any problem until then.

Tks again to all our beta testers.

Running for nearly 10 hours now, very stable.

I don't miss the count in the aircraft history if that fixes that problem and my alerts are working just fine.

Well done Airnav it looks like we are about to cross the finish line. (That should make something break now ;-))

You talked it up, Just had a complete map freeze up and was unable to select aircraft in the my flights list.

But to cure this, I unchecked and the checked the "Process Hardware Flights"

Everything back to normal.

Hi

For a third time, I have got the freezing of the aircraft on the screen and not able to select aircraft in my flights. Has this anything to do with the memory issue you mentioned the other day.
Below is what I had after unchecking and checking "Process Hardware Flights" and the second shot is what I have now.

I've seen a similar scenario in the previous beta's at odd times, not noticed it yet with the current one.

To me it seems to be a resource related issue, and the work around is to grab the lower corner of the screen and slightly resize the screen (as per bottom right of this screen). Your up to date data will reappear and you will be able to select the planes.

You have a "BMI British Midland" filter set - clear the filter and your other planes will appear
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: abrad41 on September 19, 2009, 10:49:25 AM
I cleared the filter and it was still same, I closed down the RB and after that it would not let me restart it, so I had to restart windows.

I now have it running again, but without network flights on, I am now off to work and I will leave it running until about 22.15, when I get home.

A small glitch whilst testing the email alerts I switched the network on, when I switched it off two aircraft remained in the network list and have done so for the last 3 hours. Any ideas why?

I closed the program restarted and they have now gone.

It you select Network flight on again then off, it will clear them.  It seems to be related to WHEN you untick the box.

A small glitch whilst testing the email alerts I switched the network on, when I switched it off two aircraft remained in the network list and have done so for the last 3 hours.

A long standing problem which I'd given up on hoping it would be fixed.  Never turn the network off when the network countdown timer is near 30 seconds or 1 second.  It gets confused.  I always wait until around the 10-20 second mark.

Well its been running all day and it looks good here so far.

I am off out tonight so will leave it running and check it out tomorrow when I get back.

I did have problems with previous builds throwing an error when exiting after it had been running for 24+ hours so I will keep an eye out.

I don't want to tempt fate by saying it looks promising but it looks promising! ;^)

Thanks & kind regards,

Just got home from work early, lucky me, the RB has now been running nearly 9hrs (without network turned on) and everything is working as it should be - I can only conlude that my problems are to do with the network.

EDIT, the whole program is working far better, quicker and how it should be running, without the network on. Seems to me the network is dragging everything down with it. This is a very stable version without the network on.

AirNav any thoughts

I've always found RB more "fluid" or "smoother" or whatever the right word is without the network turned on.  It does struggle to download 1000+ aircraft, process them, put them on the map, etc.  For 5-10 seconds it struggles a bit.  Although I've never seen significant errors, just "sluggishness".

That's not a problem when you're just watching aircraft, etc.  So, I normally turn the network off when using menus, etc.

I wish Airnav would reconsider my idea of giving the end-user the option of only downloading the aircraft that are in view on the map, to reduce the download and processing overheads.   Maybe something for v4.

On a positive note, I find this v3.05 stable and, in my opinion, ready for public beta.
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: prbflight on September 19, 2009, 10:21:15 PM
Latest beta running nearly 24 hours and seems flawless except I can't send e-mail alerts or reports.  Is this due to the beta or other mail issue's you've changed on your end?

Other then e-mail this beta seems rock solid.  Well done AirNav.

"I wish Airnav would reconsider my idea of giving the end-user the option of only downloading the aircraft that are in view on the map, to reduce the download and processing overheads.   Maybe something for v4."

Tarbat that one would totally change the way the application interacts with the server and requires a lot of background work. We will consider it for a future version but totally impossible for now.

Indeed - I've also thought it would be nice to only download flights that I have "filtered" - e.g. "NM < 1000" for example, but then I realised when I navigate around the world map, what network flights would I receive? - probably none if the filter remained in effect.

Great idea, but sounds like it needs a good deal of thought/design to achieve.

Good morning

I believe that v3.5 should be released to the public as a beta too. Its rock solid apart from the problem I have got with the network. I had a thought last night, I installed "Kaspersky Internet Security 2010" about a month or two again, this could prehaps be causing my problems.
At the moment I will use RB without the network and when I get time I will uninstall "Kaspersky" and try using AVG again to see if this will make a difference.

AirNav, when I have done this, I will let you know if this makes any difference, might just help people if there is a problem with this software. I am off on holiday next thurs for a couple of weeks, so will proberly try this when I get back.

AirNav, Thank you again for all your hard work.

Don't know if this is a new problem or not.  Selecting an aircraft in Fleet Watch that is a network flight doesn't autopopulate.

You have to find the aircraft in the network view to autopopulate it.
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: Allocator on September 20, 2009, 08:49:06 AM
I don't think that autopopulate did ever work from the Fleet Watch window, only from the 'proper' lists?

I have to say it looks OK here also apart from after closing the app after it has been running a while when I get the anrb.exe has encountered an error window pop up.

Has anyone else seen this or am I the odd one out again?

The email alerts started flowing @ 3:00am this morning so I would have missed the Auto-Report but I have had some 107 Flight In Range, Mode-S & Registration Alerts - none of them dupes.

Hi Glyn

Yes I just tested closing down ANRB and I also got the 'encountered an error' message.  This also happened to me last night when I exited the program. Other then that this release seems solid.  Can other's check to see if they are having this glitch?

I saw it once, out of maybe 10 stops/starts, as it was a once off I didn't bother reporting it.

RB had taken a really long to to shut down in that instance, and eventually crashed.

Yes I have seen this on more than one occasion and may have been tied in to the previous session being cancelled.

You know when you run the app and the Start requestor window opens with your username/password details and instead of clicking the Start box the Cancel box is clicked...when you then run the app the very next time all of the preferences/settings have disappeared.

Might this have been the case with you Peter?

I took to keeping all of my Alerts etc. in an Excel spreadsheet so it is easy to add/sort/maintain etc. and easy to import as a text file to populate when needed.

Regarding the closedown error Pauls screenshot is identical to mone.

I have already sent Aleksey the .txt file.

I must be feeling a little 'fragile' because when I see words like 'flawless' & 'rock solid' applied to software it makes my blood run cold...:-/

I only say this because RB can still bring my system to its knees.

I just watched Outlook crawling to send/receive messages and it took forever to attach the .txt file to Aleksey.

I exited RB - which incidentally did not display the Closedown error this time - and Outlook is back to its normal breakneck speed.

I was watching TaskManager and did not see any undue CPU activity but it was like wading through treacle.

Obviously if I am the only one then please do not spend any more time for the time being as the priority must be ot get the Public Beta out of the door...and of course it could be a machine specific thing and in any case I intend to build a new Core i7 machine when Windows 7 is released.

I can confirm the emailed log is working now though...

I seem to be having issues with V3.05 after running for 36 hours +, the issues are as follows,
•   Repeat aircraft in my flights, see attached TC-SGH & PH-BFD
•   Non responsive from minimised in task bar, will maximise after time, but is then slow to respond and often goes into not responding
•   Aircraft disappear off map after switching process hardware flights on and off to update changes made in database
•   After an undefined period of time highlighted aircraft do not show their photo
•   Once loaded and gone to not responding, shutdown program it will not restart, from desktop icon
Is this the memory issue referred to in the last version ?

There seems to be something going on here, have you tried just running your local flights and turn off network. Read replys #15,18,20,21,22,23,26 and 31 below, then 38.

Andy,

I am running Vista Home Premium on a Dell Inspiron 530 Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 with 3GB of memory and BT/McAfee anti virus.

The problems seem to be similar to the slow menus that seemed to affect quad core PC's, but having the network off does seem to improve the performance as Tarbat stated in a an earlier post.

CAM

Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: tarbat on September 21, 2009, 01:58:19 PM
BT/McAfee anti virus.

McAfee won't help either.  There's no way to exclude the Radarbox folders in McAfee, so all file activity in RB will be virus-checked :(

When BT switched to McAfee (from Norton), I found Radarbox performance suffered.  So I switched to Microsoft Security Essentials instead, and excluded the Radarbox folder from virus checking.

For info, I run Vista Home Premium on a Dell Dimension Intel Dual Core 2.8ghz with 2gb RAM.  I install Radarbox on a separate drive, formatted as FAT32 to avoid Vista's terrible Transactional NTFS, which also hits I/O performance.

The last version 3.04 from post #90 blocked up as reported in #122 of V3.04 thread, post #124 stated this was a memory issue.

Only seems to have come to light in the last couple of beta's, 3.04 from #90 & V3.05.

What were the changes for these could this be it ?

Has the memory issue in #124 been addressed ?

    Version 3.01 beta question
« on: Today at 14:35:02 » Quote  

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm having another crack at using 3.01 beta and am very pleased with what seems to be a substantial increase in numbers on my flights.

However I still run into a problem of the program freezing after a period of time. Once everything grinds to a halt, there is nothing I can do but close the program down and re-start. Whether this is associated with the increase in the numbers of flights being processed I don't know but my question is this:

is this a known problem that is currently being dealt with by the test team or is it down to my PC not being quick enough?

If the latter, are there any program preferences I can change to alleviate matters?

Airnav,

Any ideas what it could be ?

It does not seem to occur here after switching off the network flights, been running without network since lunchtime here now 5 hours later all looks good.

Network looks like a start, how many Beta testers run the network whilst testing ?

Oh. I did switch the network on for a very short period at a point and there is still one aircraft showing (N705JB) even though the network is back off again.

Yes Tarbat, I've just had one bounced back - their email problems continue....

BTW I use the network all the time and I'm not getting any slowdowns or freezes - the app occasionally uses 100% processor power, but normally bumbles along at between 20-40% of my 2.21GHz single processor machine (3Mb RAM). There's a momentary spike to 90% every 30 seconds when the network data arrives.

This was a big problem around the change from 2.1 to 3.1, but it's a lot better for me now.

Yes, that's more or less what I see.  I get a 50% CPU spike for 3-4 seconds every 30 seconds, when everything freezes, and then continues okay.

Wish I could get in contact with Andre about the network beta testing :(

I'm at work atm, but will test v3.06 when I get home.

I get the same as EMA, with "Aircraft" and "Registration" alerts. Wildcards or full names. It doesn't seem to affect the other types of alerts.

With both "notification & email" alerts selected I get 2 popups and 2 email alerts for the same alert.

Unselecting "show notifications" and I'll only get a single email.
Unselecting "send an email" and I'll only get a single popup

After some quick tests I can confirm its looking very good - I love the extra Mode S info that is there now (whether it was just put there for debugging I don't know - but I'd leave it in :)

I'm only receiving single popups and email alerts now.

Confirmed - I can not fault the latest version.

Not really a fault with the RadarBox logging, but Rage 61 and 62 were popping in and out of cover yesterday and therefore produced multiple hits when the report was generated.  See attached file.
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: AirNav Development on September 23, 2009, 08:47:52 AM
Allocator: please explain this problem in detail (here or by email) and a way to reproduce it so we can make the necessary correction.
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: Allocator on September 23, 2009, 09:15:26 AM
No problem.  Rage 61 and 62 are (probably) 2 x F15 aircraft out of Lakenheath.  Because they are manoeuvring and/or flying in and out of cover of my antenna, there are being picked up for a few minutes then are lost, before being picked up again.  Hence the multiple records in the Report.  RadarBox sees these as new flights due to the time lapse between detection times.

I can't really see a way around this, other than having some sort of time filter.  JSTARS has a manual time setting to try to prevent this.  It's just a slider control so you can set it for example - if an aircraft appears multiple times in a 10 minute period, then only count it once.  It's crude, but it reduces the problem to a degree.

I don't think that this is necessarily a Beta V3.05 problem, it's the fault of the aircraft flying in and out of cover!  I'm not sure that a software change is really needed?
Title: Re: V3.05 Available

I'm seeing a lot of "purple rain" with this version.  It's being caused by Network aircraft.  If I turn the network off, the purple rain dissapears.  Turn the network back on, I see the purple rain again.

Tarbat: purple rain can only be caused by a unique mode-s (aircraft) sending position for many places. Could you find out if this is the case? (also has it happened with non real-time network - for all other testers we have Tarbat and RodBearden also testing our real-time network).

You'll see on the screenshot the GAFMED flight ID for an A310. Twice now I have corrected the details in the aircraft table, including changing the ID to "10+25" - they stay there until I click the flight on the grid - it then updates the record with the Hungarian MIG data.

This is the only flight where I've seen this behaviour in recent versions of RB - I thought we'd got this one fixed!

Allegedly. :-)

Since retiring last month I now think hard about what I can spend my pennies on and when my network subscription expires next month it will be local flights only.
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: tarbat on September 23, 2009, 10:07:00 PM
Well, testing of the real-time network has been fun ;)  So many test conditions to consider where network aircraft transition to local flights, what effect different timeout settings have, etc. etc.  It's been a busy day!

But back to v3.06 - looks very stable. I ran the network for at least 14 hours solid today, and had no problems, and RB shut-down cleanly tonight as well.

I guess we just need to know if those having performance problems using the network can report good news or not.

Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: RodBearden on September 24, 2009, 12:01:25 AM
Support - I think you're right, but I can't remember the details.

Tarbat - there were entries in those fields, and I didn't change or delete them - working on the basis that a different registration would force them to update, I think. The odd thing is that the panel says "Photo not available", but I've checked the link fields, and both of them lead to actual photos in Airliners.net.

Anyway, if this problem only applies to these German + codes, I don't think it's a show-stopper - the current release seems pretty good to me.

Regarding the Real-Time network: we know it will create a huge discussion about paying/not paying. In simple terms we will maintain the delayed network as it is now / same price. What will change is the simple addition of real-time network at an extra price. Who wants it pays for it, who doesn't want it doesn't pay and keeps the current solution or no network at all. We believe this is the best way to help all users and support all the development work.

Rgd the rest we are correcting the pending problems.

Post by: AirNav Development on September 24, 2009, 05:08:30 AM
Purple rain: we have re-checked the code and it is virtually impossible for that to happen (the code is very strict now on this part). Maybe it was a computer glitch, we make no idea, unfortunately. Any user pls confirm if this happens again.

Abrad41: the network problem has been corrected. Anyway pls confirm it doesn't happen there.

Allocator: we can't do anything regarding the on/off of such flights.

Rod: if that is not a show-stopper we would go ahead with this release to the public. Anyway we do confirm this only happens to registration having a "+". We believe the problem could also be airliners.net related. My question: can you find aircraft photos on airliners.net which registration has a +? We can't. Maybe you can help us with this and we would be happy to correct it.

So latest .exe below:
http://www.airnavsystems.com/download/personal/anrb.exe

Sorry I go away on holiday today, so will not be able to test the network problem, also my subscription ran out last night @ 18:23.  Depending on the response from the other tester about the network problem, depends on weather I take out a new subscription for the next year, I will have a long think about it while on holiday.

I'm puzzled by the Luftwaffe + signs - I'm sure Airliners.net used to have them, but they're not there any more - I can't find any, anyway. I had manually set up some photos for many of their A310's with registrations including the + signs, and one of them is on the network at the moment. I changed the registration to leave out the + sign, and RB duly retreived the correct photos. The data was already correct, so no overwriting problem there.

The aircraft is just about to land, so I won't be able to change the details to see if RB overwrites them. Anyway, I suggest we forget this problem for now and see what happens if any more + signs occur in future.

The latest version seems excellent so far.

I am on BT Internet and receive around 4mb of the alleged 8mb I should get, the broadband connection is rock solid, I know this because a couple of months ago I lost everything and ended up having a new phone line fitted and its been excellent since then.

Hopefully the problem I had was a glitch, I will check again later and report.

Well 3.06 Beta has been running OK for a while here and is definitely the best version I have ever seen regarding stability, menu speed etc.

Still has a tendency to slow everything else down but that could be something specific on my PC and so I wouldn't want that to hold up releasing the long awaited Public Beta.

That means a green light from me then!

Thumbs up here...nice one AirNav.

Now it's time to brace ourselves...:-)

Thanks & kind regards,

Sorry no green light from me :(

The network seems to be still causing me issues.

I am running the version from post #119 and once running the network the application slows down as previously mentioned. I get the vista " I am thinking of something" swirl, then OK, but;

Once network is running it seems OK but once turned off after running for a while, network aircraft remain on screen, whatever the number was, then, last time I tried 73 aircraft remained, it then eventually fell to 1 aircraft, presumably after they had timed out.

Once this has occurred in my flights selecting the aircraft does not work, it does not show on the map and it does not show the photo and aircraft do not move.

Then all of a sudden all comes back to normal?????? Then stops again.

Also on start up the map returns to China, with no interface showing, which is could be my fault, when I loaded v3.06/#90 it was slow to respond and I selected China instead of default to get it displaying the map and ever since it loads up the same China map with no interface

It is very frustrating as to what it could be.

Could I try a full version download to test a full install or should I try the first V3.06 version again as that seemed to be OK, to verify my results.

Sorry for the bad news.

Network update

I have run V3.06 since last night at 21:00 with network on and all seems fine, downloaded second version of 3.06 and now running with network on, will leave this now for a while to see if this has any issue.

V3.06 seems better on my issues, Abrad any joy at your end ?

Purple rain: we have re-checked the code and it is virtually impossible for that to happen (the code is very strict now on this part). Maybe it was a computer glitch, we make no idea, unfortunately. Any user pls confirm if this happens again.

Abrad41: the network problem has been corrected. Anyway pls confirm it doesn't happen there.
 


Sorry I go away on holiday today, so will not be able to test the network problem, also my subscription ran out last night @ 18:23.  Depending on the response from the other tester about the network problem, depends on weather I take out a new subscription for the next year, I will have a long think about it while on holiday. I will have my RB with me, but no internet connection.

Cheers

Andy

CAM, if there's an earlier 3.06 version that worked okay for you, then it must be worth you running that version again to eliminate a specific problem with your PC setup.

What date/time did you have the earlier version?  I've got backup copies of all previous versions.

AirNav

While we are talking about full versions & re-installs. I had a lot of concerns when I was uninstalling & reinstalling because the uninstall process leaves behind files in its install directory and also registry entries.

Not sure if they caused me any actual problems with testing, but it would be nice to have an option in the uninstall routine that you could check that would remove all userdata as well as the standard install files, to remove any doubt.

e.g. Remove ANRB directory and Remove registry entries and reboot the system to free any dll's etc.

I wouldn't worry for this beta version if you are about to release it as a beta, but would be good to include in future.

AirNav - Can you please check the version you have included in the full install package.

it is 2009/09/24 06.06 and I have 2x later versions of v3.06b than that.

Also not sure if it is by design, or accident, but installing the full version overwrites any existing log file in the directory (so you lose the history). No problem for me as I have backups :), but may catch out some others....

Before running this new beta, I file-compared back to my current installation to look for what's changed:

1. D008.DAT file still needs updating to include military flags, etc. from my latest version.  Same applies to the FLAGS folder.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3611/3955382424_2c67f84674_t.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tarbat/3955382424/sizes/o/)

2. The following files are newer in this new installation.  I'm assuming this is another update to the navigation aids database.
D009.DAT - completely new file
L004.DAT
L006.DAT
L009.DAT

Airnav,

Left the full install running yesterday and last night.

Came to it this morning and My flights were OK, then went to network and could not select any aircraft and once it starts this cycle it will not let you select anything and it go's into not responding mode.

Looks like it may be an issue with my PC setup etc as no one else is having this other than abrad who is now away and cannot test.

Hello everybody!

Follows the position of the tests I did:

In the Notebook with Vista and 2 GB:
Sometimes the system crashed and had to restart, especially when connected to the network. With local flights not notice problems.

The PC with Windows XP and 4GB:
Did not find any problem with both local flights as when connected to the network. It seems that with XP and more memory your system has an excellent behavior.

I think this version is ready for release.

Hi CAM,

I nearly posted stats this morning although I was going to use 16% as my example!

Can you imagine 16-17% of 2500 Forum Users experiencing the same problem as you and Andy?

Nearly 400 users statistically...although the whole idea of a Public Beta is just that...a Public Beta.

Maybe release this Beta with the proviso to look out for the same problem as you two guys might be the way to go?

Regards,

Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: AirNav Support on September 27, 2009, 08:16:28 PM
Customers won't see the public beta as a "test version". We also don't want to give the impression it has a fault as people with either not install it and or automatically assume they have the same issue.
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: tarbat on September 27, 2009, 08:56:19 PM
Agreed.  Release the public beta, but don't highlight potential faults, as others will "find" the same problem.

Maybe release with the normal "beta" warning.   Say that it's been tested by a small group of closed beta testers, and there may still be problems that need a wider public beta to identify any problems.

That was always the approach I took as a testing manager.

The upgrade (for users with V2.xx) is available at:
http://www.airnavsystems.com/download/anrb/beta/ANRBUpgradeto306Beta.exe

Please download and install it and test it one more time. We had to make a last minute change to the 30003 port output but it should not interfere with the rest of the application.

Rgd the points above: we strongly believe they are computer related but let's wait for the public opinion. We are still releasing it to the public as a beta so we are open for more (minor) corrections.

I'm having a problem with V3.06 on the laptop when I use the altitude filter.  As soon as I select the filter on, the map freezes.  Everything else continues to work as normal, but the map becomes a 'window' and minimising RB and restoring it again shows the other program where the map window should be - see the screen shot below.

This is the same if just Live or Live and Network is selected.  I did recover this by right clicking on the map to bring up the 'close map' menu, closing the map and then opening a new 'default' map via the Map menu list - however, this didn't work one time I tried it.

I didn't have the laptop with me last week, so I'm not sure when this issue was intruduced, as it's not something I've seen before.  I'm running a fairly poor mobile broadband connection, but as this happens without the Network selected, I'm not sure if this is related.

V3.06 worked fine on the main PC at home.

As long as I don't use the altitude filter, everything looks OK.

Edit: Don't be mislead by the section of the RB map showing in the screen shot - this is Paintshop Pro with this screen shot showing 'through' RB, not the RB map.

I've never used the altitude filter before. Just tried it now. No freezes, but interesting effect.

I selected Altitude < 8000

The flight info in the text interface filtered correctly, but all aircraft continued to be displayed on the radar screen - even those over 8000 feet!

I ran out of time testing this at lunchtime, but I'll get back to it tonight.  Initially I was using the Advanced menu and just accepting the default altitude filter levels 0-15000 ft, but I also tried this via the main Filter(?) menu with the same result.  I did manage to convince myself at at one point that if I put anything in the lower filter greater than zero, then it was OK, but I need to revisit this.  I use the altitude filter extensively when I'm here in London due to the high traffic density, so I'm not doing anything different.  I can't imagine why the altitude filter should affect the drawing of the map.  As nobody else has reported this and it only happens on my laptop, it's just a heads-up at the moment just in case it appears when released to the general public.

I'll do some more testing and try to pin this down this evening - it could be something completely unrelated to the RB software itself.  It's just odd how it happens without fail when I click that filter button.

I suspect that you are using the Quick Filters, not the Advanced Filters that allow you to filter aircraft on the map by altitude band, distance from a point or by aircraft type.  These filters work ONLY on the map, not the aircraft lists.

Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: tarbat on September 28, 2009, 05:25:11 PM
Rod, if its the same as the Dist quick filter, you'll need to put leading zeros on the altitude - so 08000 for 8000ft.

Post by: Allocator on September 28, 2009, 06:22:02 PM
OK, I'm back and testing :-)

I've tried to repeat the altitude filter map freeze problem, and everything is working just as advertised now.  The only thing that I did different this evening was to put EGLL into the SmartView > Select Airports box and hit Enter.  This box was empty but the Auto Set QNH was ticked.  Is there any chance that this was the problem?

A bit of background on how I ended up here:

- Renamed my RadarBox directory to avoid overwriting with the new install.

- Did a completely new install using the full download posted.

- Ran this new install briefly to make sure all was OK

- Exited RB and renamed the new install directory to New

- Renamed my previous RB directory to the correct name.

- Copied the anrb.exe from the new installation to my original directory to give me all my custom outlines, D008.dat file etc

- Ran RB (new exe in old directory) and this is what gave me the empty Select Airports box.

Maybe nothing to do with my map freeze problem, but that's the whole story :0)

RB running without any problems now with the Altitude filter set to 0-15000.  Testing continues, but everything looks good!

yes I was only using the quick filter. I'll try the advanced filter when I get home tonight - if your problem has now gone away after a fresh install, I suspect mine will be fine too. Give me 8 hours or so for an update (these timezones are a killer for quick replies sometimes...)

As I said before this is the best version I have seen so far...i hesitate to use words like rock-solid, perfect etc. but it looks like we have a winner!

Thanks AirNav...

I am also starting yet again from a virgin database to rule out any problems that might be in the 9,000+ database from the beginning of September.

One thing I notice when installing a new version - although it remembers preferences, Alerts etc. I always have to fill out the SmartView details which loses all of my previous registrations.

Not a major problem of course just wondering why the discrepancy - surely if it remembers Alert details than it should be consistent and also remember SmartView details?

You should already have the latest D008.dat file and FLAGS folder from me.  See post #153

Tarbat: I confirm we have it on our setup but RodBearden reported we didn't have. So I'm waiting for his reply to give release the version to the public.

Quick question for you guys using Vista...I hear things about the Virtual Store and a friend of mine always seems to lose his database when upgrading.

What is the best way of installing the full 3.06 Beta version on a Vista system leaving his existing ANRB setup intact please?

A quick search for virtual store returned no hits...

Just how do you Vista guys here install new releases?

Thanks & regards,
-=Glyn=-

I sent the latest logos to Andre last week, and again today - today's file contains 2000 logos!

Some of them are duplicates for multiple registrations, but we don't need to point that out ;-)

I hope the AirNav email system is working OK now.

The last full install is available at:
http://www.airnavsystems.com/download/anrb/beta/ANRB306BetaSetup.exe

When I try to start the full install I always get the message 'The setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program'. I suppose there i something wrong here... (downloaded the setup-file several times)

Dirk.

The file is 100mb and seems to be fine and others can download it. Try restarting your machine and download to a different area and it should be fine.

I get the same error.  It took ages to download - >20 minutes.  Has anyone downloaded this okay?

I won't be able to beta test tomorrow - hospital again.

Hi Airnav,

Restarted the computer and downloaded the file to another location but no joy...
Still the same result 'The setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program'

I had a similar problem with the previous full 3.06 download yesterday - when I double-clicked the file it reported the package was corrupt.

Downloaded it again earlier today and it was fine...

Just taking this latest one and it seems to be downloading OK although slow at @150KB/sec

By way of comparison while this is still downloading I can pull down a file from Symantec @ 500KB/sec...

No major problem...it will take a while longer that's all...
.
.
.
The latest full package downloaded with no issues and installed correctly.

As I have mentioned before though although it remembers most of my preferences I have to populate the SmartView registrations every time I install a new version.

To retain consistency shouldn't this pick up the previous settings?

Testing commenced!

Post by: RodBearden on September 29, 2009, 10:21:37 PM
Ahhh... that's better - downloaded successfully, and the correct flags and logos are there. As Glyn says, all the settings apart from SmartView have transferred OK.

If this is exactly the same ANRB.exe as the previous release, and I suspect it is, it looks good to go!

Rod
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: GlynH on September 29, 2009, 10:23:56 PM
One big issue that has been mentioned before and has just struck me down...again

If when you load ANRB and then choose not to run it by clicking Cancel the next time you run it you get the default screen with the Vertical Tracking View at the bottom and no interface.

Also gone is the complete Alerts list preferences, Smartview of course, default METAR & Home Location amongst others...God only knows what else?

If you then go to run a previous version it too has lost its settings...

Really annoying and totally unecessary in my opinion.

Just what is it with AirNav and User Preferences anyway??

Regards,
-=Glyn=-

Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: tarbat on September 29, 2009, 10:31:43 PM
I'll leave the new version running overnight, but I see it's exactly the same .EXE as the previous release, so don't expect any problems.
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: GlynH on September 29, 2009, 10:36:07 PM
The same .exe?

Well I am seeing that damn sleepy pointer and some strange menu behaviour back again...too coincidental to be anything but the latest version I have just installed and run...

When I am navigating the menus (as I need to do to reset all of the settings lost as per my last post) the menu will sometimes disappear leaving just the menu name in the title bar highlighted.

I can run my mouse along the title bar and as I do each menu name, File, Filters, Map, Tools, Window, Help etc. will highlight to show which menu is selected but the menu does not show.

I then have to click the bar again to actually display the menu...

<sigh>

Do I sound frustrated?

-=Glyn=-

"If when you load ANRB and then choose not to run it by clicking Cancel the next time you run it you get the default screen with the Vertical Tracking View at the bottom and no interface."

Corrected.

"Also gone is the complete Alerts list preferences, Smartview of course, default METAR & Home Location amongst others...God only knows what else?"

Have installed the upgrade, the full version or just replaced the exe?

"When I am navigating the menus (as I need to do to reset all of the settings lost as per my last post) the menu will sometimes disappear leaving just the menu name in the title bar highlighted."

Please drop me an email regarding this one ASAP.
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: GlynH on September 29, 2009, 11:29:00 PM
Thanks for the correction...as I have been caught out before I keep all of my Alerts in a spreadsheet ready for quick input into ANRB but its really annoying all the same!

OK...I have sent you an email as requested but I do have to be up for work in less than 5 hours...

Kind regards,

[email protected] should not be used. It is our customer support email.
You should always use [email protected] to contact me directly. I'm sorry for the problem.
Title: Re: V3.05 Available
Post by: GlynH on September 30, 2009, 04:55:25 AM
But your pm also gave another email address where you were supposed to be online at that time and bearing in mind there have been problems with your email address at airnavsystems.com I sent it to the alternative address you left...

The last time I ran ANRB before going to bed just 4 hours ago it sat there displaying the start-up splash screen for an extended period of time...

TaskManager reported ANRB.exe as Not Responding but then after a few minutes it decided to start.

This was following the fresh install and a reboot using the default databases (small) which usually speed up the loading process.

I have not/will not have time to test again most of the day as I need to be out of the door shortly for work...

As my last email said as I seem to be the lone voice in the wilderness again so why not just go ahead and release it anyway?

All good here, other than the full install overwriting my existing log file.

fwiw - Also running with the new Microsoft Security Essentials, no impact noted.

Always a good idea to rename your existing RB directory so that the 'fresh' install doesn't overwrite anything - or to prevent having a mixture of old/new files.

It's also easy to then copy across your database files from the old installation to the new one if you want to.

Glynn has suggested that you go ahead without him. Bratters is getting over-excited over on the main board!

Since Glyn said go ahead I think you should release it now, it is still only a beta.

Agreed.  Release the public beta.

On this last exe we have change the 30003 share settings from 10 secs to 1 sec. We are afraid this may be causing Glyn's problem so we prefer to wait for his approval. I'm still waiting for his contact.

Still he did say go ahead.

Well I've just got in after an 18 hour day, come straight upstairs into the office, installed the latest Beta and still see the busy pointer when navigating the menus but it doesn't stop me selecting anything.

I would feel much better if you released this version that no-one else has a problem with as I have always been a lone voice in the wilderness when it comes to this particular problem...

I also have to be up early - 4:30am this time so can only afford to spend an hour or so at most on ANRB which will give me a second night of only 4 hours sleep.

The irony is I've done nothing all week and so had loads of time on my hands...

I'm going to get myself a drink now and try to chill in what is left of my evening...

We are releasing now V3.06 Beta to the public.

In the name of all our team I would like to personally say thanks to all of you for the remarkable, outstanding and day by day job you have been doing to help our hobby and for us to have a better RadarBox software.

You already know but I would like to say again that we will never stop working to improve AirNav RadarBox and AirNav Systems products in general. The most important part of this is to keep all our users happy. With the user base growing week after week we need to work harder to keep all of them happy.

We are also announcing the release of "AirNav RadarBox Network - Real-Time" to all the users (not just professionals). This is a great effort from our part and will turn RadarBox into a much better product. After this AirNav RadarBox 3D will follow.

We are also announcing today the acquisition by AirNav Systems of shipspotting.com, the world's biggest marine related website (especially for enthusiasts). We already have our team working on a new version of the site which will make it the airliners.net of shipping.

Now we expect hard work on the forum: pls help us with all those users with question, suggestion and...of course, complaints. :-)

Tks again!!!

PS: we still have Glyn and CAM reporting some problems and we are dealing with them by email directly. This is still a beta version so we expect some users (a very small number) to still report some minor problems on the forum.
