Hello Captains, Please have a lokk here:

Dear Captains, Next Wednesday I will meet an ex-Concorde real life pilot. I will discuss with her of several Concorde X vs real aircraft differences. During development, she already

Thank you sir! That fixed that problem.

Now I get this when trying to compute fuel:

Also when I try to ADD ROUTE, it says already added. But I've never added it before. Then when I try to load it it says ADD ROUTE first...

Sorry ;p

Ok I've found a way for now.

I must always first ADD ROUTE, then load it in. I cannot load a route that was already added before.

I didnt get the error at fuel calculation now so it worked completely. Thanks!

P.S.

There is a little spelling mistake. At the end with the complete report it says "Flight plannig complete" it must be "Flight Planning complete"

Replica,

Just a comment on your route. Are you planning to remain supersonic over Scotland? A better route would be to turn to the east and then down over the North Sea. Don't want the Scots getting annoyed with you! :D

Haha you're right. I adjusted it.

@ Pierre:

I get the http error again when loading the route. I don't know what triggers it. Because sometimes it comes and sometimes not..

I'm not concerned about someone being forgotten. I guess my point was if that is the complete donor list, it is VERY short and disappointing.

I'm shocked more people have not given you some money for your efforts, Pierre.

Hi,

That's life!

As you know, when you propose a free product with donation option, only very few people donate.

As I don't wanna sell CPS, I have to accept this statement. (I've chosen it).

That not affects my passion for Concorde and my determination to improve CPS again and again for my pleasure and your.

Cheers

Okay, this morning this error occured: http://imgur.com/VuJPtar

It happens when I've chosen an airport and switch to the Route Tab, from here nothing works. After adding and loading the route, a new script error occurs without line/char-pointers, but with this url: http://maps.gstatic.com/maps-api-v3/api/js/20/0/intl/no_ALL/main.js, and then "could not complete the operation due to error 80020101" . No map is loading on the route page either, so I guess that's the problem.

I didn't realize how dependant I'd become of CPS, but now my Concorde is grounded :)

Edit: For your next update, perhaps consider making the program independent of the online sources? I mean, all the performance calculations could still work even though the map displays and weather sources are corrupted via manually entering the vital data (METAR etc).

Hi Meese,

It seems there is a problem with map server connexion.

Will have a look on this.

In the actual state, I can't turn CPS independent of online sources. This would cost too much money to buy map component.

May be If the donors were more numerous...

Cheers

What about providing an offline option without the maps? I mean, the route is already drawn in the flight planning software, CPS for me is about properly calculating weights, fuel and performance, which it is excelent at. Perhaps an offline mode available for donators?

Does donations remove the pop-ups in the client, by the way?

Hi Pierre,

I haven't used Concorde for some time but I am now looking to fly some routes. I have installed CPS v3.0.0.104 and updated the exe to 3.0.0.105.

After launching it I press Yes to continue past the two Script Error messages and then select Control Panel.

I click on Default Paths and point to the location of FSX.exe and where I store my Concorde plans. I then choose Apply.

If I then exit CPS I get the following error message...

Not being a French speaker I'm afraid that means nothing to me. Any chance of multi-lingual messages? :)

Will you be supporting Active Sky Next any time soon? I upgraded from AS2012 last year. I will certainly make a donation irrespective of whether you can support ASN or not but it would be nice if you could.

Pierre,

Sorry, another odd message. After entering the ICAO of the departure airport I select Add Route and select a FSX compatible flight plan. When I try to load it I get the following message:-

Nom de fichier incorrect - %s.

I press OK but the plan isn't loaded.

Also, why can't the program be minimised? It stays on the desktop despite the minimise button being pressed. Very strange. Anyone else getting these errors. It seemed more stable in earlier versions. Sorry if that disappoints. :unsure:

It's the same problem I've described just above, it started today (timing, eh?). The client Pierre have created collects data from various online sources, and a corruption in the source providing the map data is causing problems, the ones you are experiencing now. This means effectively that the software for now can't be used. Understandably, these sorts of external problems can take time to resolve, so we're back to rough estimates using pen, paper and calculators for now, (try the tips in the last post in this thread for example), while Pierre works his magic (basically for free!).

Thank you Pierre. I appreciate external changes of data present a major headache for you. Hopefully once fixed these things will stay stable.

Meese. Thanks. I'll await the next build.

Same here. Eagerly awaiting the new build. Thanks for this amazing app and hope to fly Concorde again in the virtual skies of VATSIM soon!

EDIT: Why not just save the map for offline use? It isn't exactly required to use a very detailed map for flight planning (just denoting the continents), and that way there can be an offline mode where we enter the METAR info/set the custom weather data.

Pierre,

I've uninstalled the earlier version and installed build 105 but I continue to get the script error. I see the Donate screen very briefly and then the same two script error messages appear.

Clicking Yes or No has no effect. If I supply the paths to FSX and Flight Plans when I exit CPS I still get the same error.

Derek Struye

Sad to report, 105 still does not work here either. I immediately get an error when I click the Route button like so....

iddt9ctph4kRP.jpg

I can click past this error when selecting Yes. Another error window pops up that is same but has no info listed. Click Yes to bypass that one. I then can click Route Data:Load button. I select the file then get the following error window...

i7iZspQHw3IOU.jpg

Then I Yes through 2 more same window errors and finally end up with "Could not complete the operation due to error 80020101".

CPS is then lockuped completely and I have to close it down with the X at the upper RH corner.

Hi Pierre,

Very strange especially when it works for you. I'm seeing the same as very Bumpy. Here is my cps.cfg if it helps. I am also running as an administrator.

One question. Why does theGribSource entry require ' around the path when the others don't?

If you completely remove CPS and reinstall you should be able to reproduce the problem. if not perhaps Windows Language is a factor?

LATER: That GribSource looks suspect. If you click on the link it doesn't work but will if the final ' is removed. The other two links are okay.

Hi Pierre,

I don't have a cps.reg file. Is this a registry fix? If so, how do I use it? Just double-click?

Link to post
Ray Proudfoot

Double-clicked it. Chose Yes. Installed okay. Tried running CPS but still get same script errors even after reboot. I did get slightly further on before those errors appeared and this time got this one after choosing a route...

Hello,

I just discovered your program that seems very interesting. Unfortunately, I also have the same problem reported here. Tried too the .reg fix.

Kind Regards,

Richard Portier
