Found the problem.....the Lock.json file still existed in the Air Manager user folder within Windows. After deleting it, AM launches and closes normally.

Hi,

Where is the video texture stored in AM?

Reason is that the panel still shows the texture even after xplane has shut down.

There is a clip on the Discord.

Hi,

This is really getting frustrating guys

New update just stuffed up the install. java errors and whatnot.

Even a fresh download will not work.

Come on guys. please test before you put these updates out.

Now what do I do?

Yes I tried to reinstall running as "administrator"

Hi,

Ok I managed to get it to update from a new download.

OpenJDK was holding it up. I terminated the task and the reinstallwent through.

Hi,

AM CTD when loading static data if there is a .json compilation error.

Hi,


The installer never changed. My guess is that AM was running when you ran the setup, that can prevent some files from being updated.
Could you send me the faulty json which you are trying to load, I can probably figure out what is going on.


In a general sense I agree, we could and should have tested better. My idea is to create a decent test specification next time round,

Hi,

Was strange because I was restarting AM after a CTD and the auto updater prompted.
Maybe the CTD did not fully close AM.

Any non valid ,json will CTD AM.

You can try this. I just made it non valid "extra" "," on last nest.

Code: Select all

{
    "items":
	[
		{
			"ident": "Lancair Evolution",
            "pfd 1": [386, 98, 2108, 1578, 0, 0, 2108, 1578,"xpl/G1000_PFD_1","GDU_1040.png"],
            "mfd"  : [386, 98, 2108, 1578, 0, 0, 2108, 1578,"xpl/G1000_MFD","GDU_1040.png"]
        },
		{
			"ident": "Cessna 172 SP Skyhawk - 180HP - G1000",
            "pfd 1": [386, 98, 2108, 1578, 0, 0, 2108, 1578,"xpl/G1000_PFD_1","GDU_1040.png"],

        },
		{
			"ident": "This is the new generation of General Aviation aircraft.",
            "pfd 1": [386, 98, 2108, 1578, 0, 0, 2108, 1578,"xpl/G1000_PFD_1","GDU_1040A_30.png"],
            "mfd"  : [386, 98, 2108, 1578, 0, 0, 2108, 1578,"xpl/G1000_MFD","GDU_1040A_20.png"]

Hi Keith, no offense intended at all, when finding a bug, I think we can help @Corjan a bit more and quicker, by providing a ready made instrument, than just only a brib which will force him to spend additional time to build a new instrument. This indeed also apply to me if I forgot this point in the past 😉 What do you think Keith ?

Hi Gilles, I think Keith has a valid point.
If a file is out of the normal 'parameters' , then it should be correctly rejected and NOT cause a CTD, hence supplying a deliberate out of parameter file should help.
Just my thoughts. :) It is all down to error handling.
