Wrong Aircraft, How to figure out why

Post by joefremont » Fri Sep 20, 2019 10:22 pm

I often get contacted by pilots who say the client won't accept the flight sim model they want to use and don't know why. There is a way to find out why the client rejected it. In your Documents/FSairlines folder there is a debug file created by the client that will have a name like fsairlines_debug.v2.3.1.txt, the number in the file name will correspond to the version of the client you are using. If the client rejects an aircraft the reason will be in that file, I did two tests, I booked a 747 and tried to fly first a 737 and then a DC-8, this is the output I saw in that file as a result.

First the 737, The client did not like that the aircraft had only two engines.
20.09.19 - 14:09:01 Warn: [CFlightSimulatorInterfaceUsingFsuipc] Engine count missmatch db: 4 found 2
20.09.19 - 14:09:01 Debug: [CUserInterface] Could not start flight! Aircraft type does not match. (5)
Next the DC-8, empty weight was too light.
20.09.19 - 14:10:06 Warn: [CFlightSimulatorInterfaceUsingFsuipc] DOW missmatch db: 156610 Found 62057 ratio -0.603748
20.09.19 - 14:10:06 Debug: [CUserInterface] Could not start flight! Aircraft type does not match. (4)
Where it shows "db: 156610 Found 62057", those are weights in KG
