Misty Flying Club and Multi Player / Re: CTD
« Last post by av8erjm on Today at 08:33:03 PM »
OK what I have done, I removed the logbook files I have run the log book exe to look at the log book file and fix, it said it didn't find any thing wrong. On another tact w/o d/l a flite pln I opend the kneeboard and clicked on the nav log and no CTD, I then just entered alt/f/p entered two airports and let the FSX flite planner do its thing  sitting at PAHN opened the kneeboard again and clicked on the nav log and no CTD. Now I went back into the flite planner and added my own WP to the NDB saved it and then opened the kneeboard clicked on nav log and got the CTD and had to restart, so something is corrupted in the FSX program, Nor was I connected to the Cigar Box. one other thing that's unusual that I hadn't noticed before, next to the nav log button there is a  button sayin' messages, I click on that and there is still messages on a flite I took months ago that were still there on a IFR flight I made.

On the avsim site they were talking about C++ programs and I don't want to mess with those and dig myself a deeper hole. At this point there is a corruption somewhere in FSX but IMHO it's not woth removing the ACCEL pkg and do a restore/repair and then have to put in all the addon scenery and ORBX and then have to go thru all the aircraft and see which ones I have to reinstall, one big pain in arse

What programs are you using?  You could scout out a suitable pond that freezes in winter, then build the "rink" around it.  I think OLC places the water features in the terrain and determines if they freeze in winter or not.  Rod could probably tell you about creating a pond in the scenery, maybe.   :-\

So sad.  Sorry for JJ's loss as well as the thousands of others that are affected.  Glad he is alive.  I thought the worst when I saw that title.  :o  Thanks for posting for him, Steve.  8)

Major GoTo Table Update ....

Norm and I have done some major updating of the GoTo table. We have taken out the "ease of flight" column and put in the MFC flight number for all of the locations showing. So now everything matches perfectly with the Misty Flying Club page and process.

49 new maps were added where we have added flights/locations.

If you look at the "legend" table, you'll see the major "groups" there, indicating the number of locations you will get when you download that package with LINKS TO THOSE GROUPS.

NOTAM: one thing to be cautious of, if you don't have ALL of the ORBX areas for RTMM (PNW, PFJ, SAK,) and Tongass X, when you download a group, you could be downloading locations in areas that are not ORBX compatible.  To check this, once you have filtered (search) to the group you want, alphabetize the ORBX column (click at the top on ORBX). Then you can see the regions that group covers.  Don't forget to expand the table to more than 10 (usually just expand to 100 and you'll be fine).

If you see typos ... and there may be some with a couple the thousands of entries Norm and I have put in... let us know and we'll fix them for you.

For sure.. This is in the forefront of our news too here in Canada. Thoughts and prayers to all those affected and those still close to the CA fires for their safety.

Hi. I would like to make an ice rink.

I was thinking a frozen pond?

I see a lot of frozen ponds in the sceneries but I have no idea how to make one.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

This is such a tragedy!!!!
Here in germany the event is present in the news. When I saw the first pictures from there, I didn‘t realize that RTMM folks could be involved.

God bless, jsapair saved his live! My thoughts are with him and all the other people involved.

Most RTMM forum members who have been around for a while are most likely familiar with J.J. Yolton, a.k.a. "jsapair."  I helped him with several computer and RTMM problems in the past, we've struck up a long distance friendship outside of RTMM, correspond back and forth upon occasion, and have even had phone conversations. J.J. lives in the mountains of Northern California near an old mining town, not too far where the  infamous Oroville Dam, which was in danger of collapsing last year, is located. This is the same area that is currently being ravaged by the Camp Fire-Paradise wildfire. I got this email from him late last night that he wanted me to share with the RTMM community.

"It got us. First indication we had that a wind-driven fire was even coming was when a propane tank in the area exploded, followed by huge billows of smoke. I thought a plane crashed. Then saw flames across the street. Time to go. Thankfully my kid was here visiting. We got my travel trailer hooked up, managed to grab my guns, laptop, and a tote bag of clothes, and hauled ass. When we left, the house directly across the street was in flames.

The escape route was a joke, total gridlock, and both my vehicles were low on fuel. Had to leave them along the way and ride with my kid, who was towing my trailer. I think my vehicles are out of the fire perimeter but I'm %99 sure my house is gone, as indicated by an attached picture of my neighbor's house. The town of Paradise is virtually wiped off the map...stores, banks, businesses...a disaster of epic proportions, and they're just scratching the surface.

We're safe, my trailer parked at my kid's place some 70 miles away. Long term, don't know what I'm going to do. Certainly can't return to a devastated war zone with no water or power. Tried to post to RTMM but they wouldn't take my .jpeg attachment so I wrote you instead. I just wanted to encourage people to donate to the Red Cross i.e, Camp Fire. I, personally, don't need anything, but thousands of people fled with nothing and will need every bit of help they can get. So maybe you could post that request for me? I'd appreciate it pal. I seem to be a little pre-occupied. Just got internet service here today so have a lot of catch-up to do.

                                     JJ"

Please keep J.J and all of those who have been affected by the out of control California fires in your thoughts and prayers as they attempt to restore their lives. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose everything in a natural disaster and have to start over from scratch; sadly many people go through total loss on a regular basis, and even lose their lives when disaster strikes. If you'd like to post and share your thoughts and/or condolences to J.J., I'll pass them along to him. 

Thanks,
Steve
