airport hops?

Postby tazzharm » Tue Sep 20, 2011 1:30 pm

Hello steve
just wanted to know if IF will monitor my flights if I do airport hops?
I purchased IF I think when you first brought it out and have used it a few times but have noticed that I do get the "microsoft flight simulator has stopped working" window and have had to just run fsx on its own..
I mainly use fsx with WWII planes such as A2A and vstudios products, and think the A2A spitfire and IF may not like each other
anyways let me know about hops when you can ...thanks

Hi Taz,

In terms of assessing a flight, IF works only on a per flight basis, so you start and end a flight and go back to IF for the assessment. You can keep flying around all day and get the weather wherever you go etc, and just ignore assessments.
The A2A Spifire, I seem to remember was tested out along with several A2A planes and all seemed OK, I can check it again. You could go to the Aircraft page and in the popup menu choose recreate aircraft parameters that may sort it out. If you had an early copy of IF then it may have incorrect settings now.

Also deleting the aircraft.ini and 0_aircraft.ini files and restarting IF will redo the aircraft index.
C:\ProgramData\Ideal Flight 10\Profiles\aircraft.ini
C:\ProgramData\Ideal Flight 10\Profiles\O_ID\0_aircraft.ini
You may need to set payload to zero percent with some aircraft (flight gen page)

thanks steve
I'll see how things go with the spitfire and hopefully it will correct itself as you have instructed.
