I use this spreadsheet, obtained on the SBS-1 forum and modified to suit the RadarBox dat file.  You should be able to see how it works, just fill in the blanks and it produces a field which can be copied into the D008.dat file

I tried a few of the on line calculators to convert the hex to binary but they all seem to come up one charcter short at 23 instead of the 24. :(

I use the standard Windows calculator in Scientific mode.  If you only get 23 characters, just put a zero on the beginning.



And Ireland military are already in the D008.dat file I'veposted on the other thread:

IB,Ireland Mil 251,010011001010000000100011
IB,Ireland Mil 256,010011001010000101011000
IB,Ireland Mil 258,010011001010001000000100
IB,Ireland Mil 260,010011001010000111100111

IB,Ireland Mil 262,010011001010000111101001

A slightly taller CAY.bmp which matches the other flags.  The size should be 16 x 11 for the best effect.

All the flags in my zip are either 16x11 (for countries) or 11x11 (for Airnav legacy military roundals), and are coloured/designed to match the standard AirNav ones.

Hi Guys

I had the same problem with the Manx reg aircraft and the RAF roundal, all I did was put 1 line of code in D008.dat and it works,

IoM,Isle of Man,010000111110------------

I didn't think the IoM was allocated 4096 hexcodes.  Isn't there a risk that you'll end up with some RAF aircraft displaying an IoM flag?

See this thread to see the amount of work that went into the original SBS1 countries.dat file from which the D008.dat file I've posted is derived - http://www.kinetic-avionics.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4023

Allocator , tarbat

Thanks for the hex info guys. And here's the proper Sliverjet Logo to replace Sobelair which is showing up on SLR flights. And also a logo for Eos Airlines as there's none in the folder at present :)

Would it be possible to have a collection point for all additions to the D008 file and new .bmp logos so that we can follow any changes made. Perhaps regular available .zip files for both?

Good idea, I'll start a new thread.

I'm happy to update the D008.dat file whenever the SBS1 community update their countries.dat file - last update was October 2007.

Ideally, I'd like to see Airnav maintaining and distributing a complete D008.dat file that contains all countries and military flags/roundals.

That would be a good idea. I only just remembered to make a copy of the d008 file when I did the last upgrade so was able to reload that.....

When I asked on the SBS-1 forum if anybody minded me using their work for the Radarbox D008.dat file, apart from being told off for discussing RadarBox, I was greeted with grudging consent - providing that all their hard work didn't end up as a Radarbox distributed item!

I did make the comment about being in the public domain, but that fell on deaf ears.  There is nothing on the SBS-1 forum that couldn't be done the hard way for the D008.dat file, it would just take longer.

You have to ask them why many of their users contacting our support the day after V1.3 was released just to get the 1200+ airline logo files we have to add them to their SBS-1 installations...

I am sure we can all find things from each of the systems that fits with what we want. I have both machines so use elements from each that I like. No one system has the monopoly on good ideas :-)
