Deja Vu?
« on: September 21, 2008, 02:09:51 PM »
This seems to be happening occasionally to me:

I watch an aircraft land live on MyFlights at my local airport, Blackpool. Then, five minutes later, I watch it land again as a network flight.

I assume there is a filter to stop this happening - I don't see other Myflights aircraft later as network flights - the map would become very crowded indeed if that happened. And it doesn't happen on all the aircraft I track landing at Blackpool.

Is there a little bugette here?

Shouldn't happen, since the network started this was always a major cocern for us that something like this did not happen and we never had issue so far.

Can you get back to us with extra details on the ones which you think are causing the issue. Also just to confirm you are not restarting RB before it appears on the network again?

Well, it hasn't happened since I started keeping notes, so I'm giving up!

I have been turning hardware & network flights off and on a lot to get MyFlights routes populated, so perhaps that's what caused the problem.

I'll let you know if it happens again.

OK - I've pinned it down now:

If soon after the aircraft lands and disappears from MyFlights, I turn off hardware flights, then turn off Network, then turn on hardware, then turn on network, the landed plane is shown arriving as a network flight.

Is this a bug, or are you going to tell me not to do that again?  ;-)

I think that's the normal way the program should react.

You received the aircraft and after the landing the aircraft is gone.
It is however send to the network server.

After you disconnected the hardware and network you connect it back to the network.
At that point you don't see the aircraft anymore with your hardware but the data is available through the network after 5 minutes so it will show up as a network flight.
I think that after you disconnected and reconnected everything, the program will react like it is restarted again and will show you everything it see on your hardware and network.

I would tell you not to do that again like you already told. :-)

I'm sure you're right, Belgianguy, but perhaps there should be something on the server that says that if Rod's computer sent that plane to the network in the first place, don't send it back to him.

EDIT - then again, it might come from someone alse's RB. Hmmm...

Any comment, AirNav?

Simply not to do that again :)

As explained by belgianguy and yourself it just keeps a store of the aircraft you have picked up, if you turn that off it won't have any to compare by.

OK - I'll think of it as an instant recorder feature!
