Re: Addons of YSFLIGHT for Linux/Mac

Running YS from a FAT32 file system removes many of the lst errors as they're actually file system not Linux errors Well that is interesting. So then an immediate solution come to mind for me in this case. 1. Create an empty file, sized around 20-30GB (Or whatever size one expects the total size of...

Re: [PROGRAM] install_addon.py

The install_addon.py program/script for me has properly installed the '4th Aerial Wing "Scorpions" ' squadron fleet pack addon. I have noot been able to test it with other aircraft packs, due to lack of time recently. But I plan to do that when I can. I think it is a very nice tool. Maybe it could a...

Re: Addons of YSFLIGHT for Linux/Mac

There seems to be a bug in ysflight for linux in versions 20150425 and 20120701, when it comes to addons. Specifically, if there is a .dnm file that in turn has a reference (or more than one) to an external .srf file, if the filepath to this file is not all in capitals, then ysflght will fail to loa...

Re: Addons of YSFLIGHT for Linux/Mac

I will.. try. I am not well versed with programming, and right now I don't have much time available. Actually I am helping decaf_42 in doing exactly that, developing a script of some kind for finding, fixing, suggesting what to do, etc... . He seems to be a much more proficient programmer and alread...

Re: [UPDATE] YSFLIGHT HANDBOOK

Golden advice on page 24 of the handbook concerning user created addons:

Use only lowercase characters in folders and filenames for new add-ons

Yet, all addons I have seen so far, do not follow this rule.

Re: Addons of YSFLIGHT for Linux/Mac

Ok. More ivestigation with the F-35 v2 pack, shows that most of the .dat files (if not all) have a wrong reference in the dat file for the needing .dnm file. Here is the list and how it was generated :~/Ysflight/ysflight/user/decaff_42$ grep -R -n User * F35/F-35B/F-35B_1_Gruppo_Marina_RCS.dat:126:W...

Re: Addons of YSFLIGHT for Linux/Mac

Yes, there is a problem with practically every plane.
The list appears, but at the moment of seleting one of the planes from that list, there is an error:

ERROR
Load Error (VISUAL): ./user/decaff_42/F35/F-35A/F-35A_421_SQ_Mixed.dnm

Re: Addons of YSFLIGHT for Linux/Mac

I understand what you mean. Well personally, I have gone the easy way to rename every single folder and filename under /path/where/ysflight/is/installed and turn them to be lowercase. $ pwd ; ls /home/ats/games ysflight $ $ find ysflight -depth -exec rename 's/(.*)\/([^\/]*)/$1\/\L$2/' {} \; And the...

Re: Where is 20181124 Linux 32bit ?

Regarding the 64bit vs 32bit version of YSFLIGHT under linux, it seems the 20181124 installer has a check mechanism to determine the type of system it is being run upon. And depending what os type it is, it will extract/install the appropriate executables. This is what exists in the installer file: ...

Addons of YSFLIGHT for Linux/Mac

Hello, Personally I use Linux, in home and work. at 90% of the time I do not have access to a Windows machine, and this post has been made from my own perspective in the matter. I have noticed that while the various addons in existence are mostly installable under Windows with little effort, that ca...
