Thread: Synthetic ILS instrument- For every Runway at every Airport

  1. #61

    Default

    One more thing. The ILS localizer needle does not work properly in FS2004 - it only moves to the right. The reason is that the command rnor does not work properly in FS2004. If you cannot read what I wrote, the command name it is r n o r, which is supposed to normalize radian values.

    So here's the fix, and it's surprisingly easy.

    1. Open the zzDAT37.xml file in a text editor.
    2. Do a search for rnor
    3. Replace

    rnor

    with

    rddg dnor dgrd

    Keep the spaces around the words.

    Karol actually did this in a number of other locations, but looks like he missed this one.

    I found this out on this old thread, thanks Rob!

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Tom

    Thank you for the information that you have provided in replies # 58 , # 59 , # 60 , and # 61 to get the Synthetic ILS instrument working in FS2004 .

    For some considerable time I have been having severe issues with my 10+ year old computer , it's now reached a stage where I cannot even load FSX it freezes a 6% .
    Unfortunately it will be several months before I can upload a FIX due to computer problems , only solution is a totally new computer .

    If you wish to distribute a modified copy of the instrument xml for those FS2004 users that are unable to attempt an xml editor modification , then feel free to do so .

    Thank you again , I'm glad that you got it to work for FS2004 .

    Cheers

    Thanks, Karol, I appreciate that. Manfred and I are working towards an FS2004 release of his Generic GCA which uses your Synthetic ILS.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are having computer problems and hope you are back up and running soon.

    Hi Ronald

    You have downloaded a different instrument .

    I created the Synthetic ILS instrument .

    My instrument was used as a basis for two other instruments as follows ,
    1. A radio talk down ( GCA ) instrument .
    2. An autoland instrument .

    Please read the documentation that came with your download and send an Email to the applicable author of your downloaded instrument .
    The author should be able to help you .

    Cheers
    Karol

    PS:
    I'm sure that you downloaded ,
    SYNC_ILS_Approach_Automation/ILS MFD/bm_DAT37.xml
    Author = Bill McCellan
    Send Bill an Email

    You did click SHIFT 8 on your keyboard to call up the instrument ?

    yes i did, how i download the wrong instrument.. i dont know whats happens, but i downloaded now your software and its works.. thnx a lot for the solution

    Would I be able to use Synthetic ILS to land at a runway such as Groom Lake 32R, where no ICAO exists for the airport (e.g. the Secret Shuttle Mission)? Many thanks.

    I answered my own question. I see from the Synthetic ILS's excellent documentation, the airbase runway has and ICAO code of KXTA and it is referred to as "Nellis Bmbg Rnge, Nevada". So I am off to test this new instrument.

    Hi ......

    The Airport that you are after ( Groom Lake ) does exist in the Sim .
    It is Area 51 .
    it's ICAO is AR51 , In the Search function of Page 1 , click top left ICAO button and
    type in AR51 , remember that the alphabet characters must be SMALL case , NOT capitals .
    Rwy 32R is 23,000' long .

    The way I located it is , I loaded my aircraft at Nellis airbase KLSV , then opened
    Page 1 of the instrument , looked at the listing , nothing , then at " >2000 " I clicked to
    increase the search runway lengths from >2000 to >6400 , it was then that AR51 appeared ,
    clicked on AR51 and got Distance and Bearing to it , plus all runways at Page 2 ,
    selected the 32R runway and proceeded to Page 3 the ILS page and did a manual ILS on arrival .

    Cheers
    Karol
