Your experience upgrading to 5.00.044
« on: October 19, 2013, 07:05:58 AM »
Finally we have RB 5.00

For those who bite the bullet upgrade to RadarBox 5.00.044 and would like to share your experience and bug found.  Please post here.

Mine download and upgrade is fine. 
Here are my findings in the first 15 min:
- The airport name now shows correctly.
- Report shows all contact are new contact
- Recipient email to sent log to are lost

Hope it will be stable enough since I will be away from this RB for the whole week.

I just did the upgrade and my Radar Rings no longer extend over the water.

And I thought someone mentioned that flights like Westjet who populate the flight ID's with just a number would now be recognized and logos displayed?

Cheers,

Jason

A screenshot might help to understand the problem.  Maybe check your colour settings?

The problem of airlines not displaying the ICAO code part of their flight ID will be addressed in a later update

Just checked my map and the radar rings are displayed which would suggest the colour scheme you use could do wiht some adjustment.  See attached shot

I just changed my radar rings to a bright white, which should easily go over the blue water with no effect.

I will try to close down and restart the software,


Cheers

CYYZGUY, I've managed to reproduce the problem.  It seems specific to your location, so I'll log this as a bug.  Seems to only affect interior water such as lakes, etc.

Thank you sir, I will just run it without the Radar Rings from now on, otherwise it will drive me crazy...

On a plus note, I notice a MUCH faster shutdown and startup of the software.  Also, screen movement seems a little more fluid to me.  Overall, so good so far other then the Radar Rings not showing over lakes around Ontario Canada..

Are we ever going to be able to adjust the column widths "flightid's, registration, aircraft etc...."??

Ok, does anyone have a solution for this?  Under "Home Station Data" It is coming up as "Toronto" which is close to me.

Before it was Blank.   I was using my manually inputted co-ordinates to centre on my house.

How can I remove "Toronto" from the Home Station Data drop down menu?

Right click on the map at your home location, and select "Set as home location".
