YAYE Ayers Rock stops P3D V4.3 compatibility issue

Post by Ebertr » Wed Jul 11, 2018 11:40 am

After installing YAYE Ayers Rock P3D V4.3 starts up to the splash screen and gets stucked there. During installation two add-on.xml files are generated and stored in ...\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons.

One of the add-on.xml seems to cause the problem:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
-<SimBase.Document id="add-on" version="4,0" Type="AddOnXml">
<AddOn.Name>FSDG-Apt ALT files</AddOn.Name>
<AddOn.Description>THIS FILE CONTROLS ALL CONTENT FOR FSDG-Airport altitude files: DO NOT EDIT OR REMOVE!</AddOn.Description>

<Name>FSDG-Apt ALT Files</Name>

The referenced files are not installed during the scenery installation process. After deleting the mentioned add-on.xml P3D V4.3 starts and the scenery is available.

However, the incomplete installation might produce side effects which could make problems when using the scenery.

Hello Ruediger,
thanks for pointing this out. You're right, the ALT scenery entry is not necessary as we removed the ALT file. If you have no other FSDG scenery installed that can cause problems because a non existing scenery folder is called. I guess very few ran into that problem before as it only occurs if you install just this one FSDG addon.
