FG launchers and scenery directory order...

Postby Lydiot » Wed May 04, 2016 1:42 am

I'm running 3.7. It has the QT launcher as standard, but also FGRun in the "bin" folder.

Using QT launcher I can't get my downloaded custom scenery to get priority or load, using "settings" "Configure add on aircraft and scenery". I have the RJGG folder downloaded to my HD to within my "custom scenery" folder. That folder, "custom scenery" is the first path in the settings entry for scenery, followed by the terrasync path. I've also tried the opposite, with terrasync first and custom second. And I've tried with the path set in the "options" box, using:

--fg-scenery=\F:\FlightGear\custom scenery\RJGG-fg-CustomScenery.git

using forward slashes, backward slashes, with and without ".git", ending at "custom scenery", and more.

I'm at a loss. Don't understand how I can get this to work.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Using FGRun I run into different problems. I'm able to set paths correctly in all places, but once I hit "run" I get an error that whatever plane I've selected is not found, even though I clearly see it on the drive.

Any ideas?

I can take a look at this. Stand by
No I can't. Sorry.
I dont have QT launcher.
Do you have launching alternatives like FGRUn?

If you are on a Linux, then FGO, is a great way to go

Try this , maybe?


--fg-scenery=F:\\FlightGear\\custom scenery\\RJGG-fg-CustomScenery.git

or this

--fg-scenery=F:/FlightGear/custom scenery/RJGG-fg-CustomScenery.git

Does your downloaded folder have the .git at the end of the name? if yes, use it if not, remove it.

Thanks for your input. As I said, I've tried all of that except the double slashes (which I just tried which doesn't work), and 'yes', I do have FGrun (last in first post).

Windows + the QTlauncher. I am at a loss there.
Sorry

Maybe Lego or SM have experience here.

Use FGRUN. 100 times better.

Like I said, I tried that and it says the aircraft are missing, although they are not.
