Outline files
« on: September 20, 2007, 09:50:45 AM »
Hi all,

I would like to use/ create outline-files for the RadarBox. I tried some .out-files for the SBS-1, but they sometimes didn't work. Is there a format restriction in the AirNav Software? What fields/ comments/ instructions are allowed in the .out-files. Is there a source with definitions for those files?

Creating outline files with Jordan's Outline Maker worked btw.

Regards,

Markus

It should work with all outlines. Can you send us the outlines you tried?

Hi Allocator,

yes I did. Unfortunately most of it is for the UK and not for Germany :(

Regards,

Markus

AirNav Support: I attached one that didn't work.

HH,

I think that your format for the file might be wrong:

This is part of your file, quickly altered to match the way that Bones does his.  This does draw the runway lines, although there are a couple of extra lines here.

Hi Allocator,

wow what a fast reply ;) You should join the AirNav Support ;)

The original file was created for SBS-1 and I think it might work with that box & software (although I have no SBS-1 and can not test it).
But it didn't work with AirNav RadarBox. That's why I asked for any available definitions of file structure (curly braces, remarks etc.), variables (like $TYPE) etc.


Thanks

Markus

OK Markus,

I only gave this a quick look before I left for work this morning, but I'm sure that it is worth looking at Bones' outline files to see what he's done.  I just wanted to see if altering your file a bit would at least draw some lines :-)

Bones has been very helpful to me in the past with SBS-1 stuff, so I'm sure he won't mind an email from you via his site asking for guidance.

How about this then HH?

I did have to restart RB then zoom in a bit to see the outline, but it does work!  Produced using Jordan's outline marker.

Allocator,

all I can say is: WOW!

Thank you very much.

I think I have to test it tomorrow in real live @ EDDH ;) Unfortunately I have no internet connection, but I will record the "session".

Best wishes,

Markus

P.S.: Do you know why there is an offset with departing aircrafts?
