Can't Book Leg 11, MFC0016
« on: June 18, 2018, 04:01:18 PM »
Well, we are back with an issue with Leg 11 of MFC0016.  When I set the bid for Leg 11 the web page indicates I have successfully bid for the leg and that I am ready to go fly.  Yet, when I go to Cigar Box to load the flight it says there is nothing to load, then I go back to the web page and view my bid and I don't have a bid.

Help.
In the mean time I am going to fly leg 11 as a charter.  Will enter the same flight information as if it were loaded via the Tour.

Interesting.  Just complete Leg 11, MFC0016 as a charter flight.  I used the Flight Number used on the previous legs for this tour.  Leg 11 was logged as if I had used the bid process and I now have access to Leg 12.

You triggered the tour leg by the flight # and bypassed the actual tour leg to get to 12.  Nice that it worked for you (won't for me). (did too after a 2nd try)... but at least confirms that the leg is setting up in the tour and will complete but something wrong as it won't complete the generating the bid. Investigating!.

Just use the tour generated flight number as the previous pirep number..then run charter in cigar box with that flight number, icaos , run to he flight and file as usual..file pirep.  Then the next tour leg should generate.

Thought I would tag along on this similar thread. Got vacation and a update/rebuild out of the way so I decided to do another tour, 16. For some reason Cigarbox/website is no working well for me. I can not retrieve  bids, but can put in the tour number and it works, however, no legs get updated or credited. All worked well with 15, so I'm not sure why 16 isn't working.

Probably your pilot and stats are still attached to the old tour and if so won't generate new legs.
Can remove you from the tour, then it should start you as a new pilot when you sign on to the tour 16.

Do you want me to remove you from tour 16? Then you can try to re-fly/regenerate the flight bids?

Well, I have already flown 2 legs and on the third now, so I don't think that is practical at this point. Don't see why you can't manually put a tick in the box so I can move on.

I wish it could be that simple Steve.  Unfortunately the engine that drives the Flying Club isn't just from one source.  Cigar Box is a highly customized interface to the basic program of phpVMS.  But in order to have tours, that's another program we bought from a third party developer.  Then yet another to auto generate awards.  Norm and I still have to approve each pirep filed, but that's only the reporting part.

The flight bids specifically are a function of Tour Center, and for the most part, they work well.  This in turn moves the flight bid to cigar box where the flight is created for you.  As you have found, you can fly almost anything from the number.  There may well be another way around this, but Norm and I are still learning, and regenerating the tour maybe the best approach.

Hang in there,

Either I found a workaround or a miracle was performed. As I said, I  flew the first four flights by the flight number. Then, after Norms post, I decided to just bid and file a manual pirep. When the first one went thru, I did the same for the next 3 and then I was able to bid and fly with cigarbox working with the bids correctly so far with the next 5. So I'm good and so far working fine.

Thanks for the advice guys.

kewl Steve... thanks for trying it..

I wish that I could just tick you by but we don't have the ability to do that in this tour module. YThe only other way is to delete a pilot off the tour to start anew then it works to start anew and generate the tour legs as bids.

Anyways good to know some workarounds.
