Can't Activate Mirror

Post MkIV Hvd »

Hi Guys,

On my new Spitfire install (updated and current) on P3Dv4.5 I cannot activate the mirror with the Aircraft Configurator. The first error message I get is, "Can't find mirror in AIRCRAFT.CFG", followed by:

"Can't read/access AIRCRAFT.CFG file:
E:\Prepar3D_v4
Add-Ons\A2A\SimOblects\Airplanes\WoP3_Spitfire\aircraft.cfg"

That's exactly where the airplane is installed and I don't understand why the program can't read the file. Any/all assistance you can provide is very much appreciated in advance! Btw...I will NOT be uninstalling/reinstalling ANYTHING unless and until I hear from you... :wink:

Cheers,
Rob Wilkinson

Perhaps the "Start in:" path is wrong in the shortcut. Have you tried running the actual exe file in "Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\A2A\A2A\Spitfire\Tools"?

Simconnect would be my next guess, if it even uses it.

Thanks for the tip Steve, I'm pretty IT stunted here and didn't think of that...I'll check it out later. I don't think it could be Simconnect as this is the only issue with any of my new A2A P3D airplanes... :?

When you get in..

Right click on the configurator and "Run as administrator". If that fails then I don't know what else it could be. I've never had trouble with this before.

Hi Rob,

Sorry for the rather slow response - it's been a decidedly hectic weekend! Steve's suggestion is certainly worth a try but could you also just let us know if you've made any modifications to the aircraft.cfg file for the Spit?

Thanks,
Nick

Hi Nick,

No worries Sir...I noticed that!! LOL

The only modifications I've made were additions of liveries, all of which work fine, but I will have a good close look to make sure I didn't screw some syntax somewhere else at the same time.

Cheers,
Rob

Thanks Rob,

The aircraft configurator is looking for some specific strings in the aircraft.cfg file: namely a line of text which contains "Title" and "Mirror" strings according to 'our' Rob.

If the issue persists, could you copy and paste the contents of your aircraft.cfg file here?

Cheers,

I tried running the configurator as administrator both from the start menu and from the folder and nothing changed. I looked at the .cfg file and don't see any reference to "Title" and "Mirror", so will post below. I don't know if this could be related in any way, but when looking at the .cfg I noticed that the program BreeZip that I downloaded to be able to open a few liveries in .7z format had put two files into the Spitfire folder. one was a .bak file that was called aircraft.cfg and the other I don't remember. Both, as well as that program have been deleted from my computer.

Thanks Nick, I know you like a challenge... :mrgreen:

Re: Can't Activate Mirror

Post Nick - A2A »

Thanks for posting that Rob, it clearly show the issue: the [CameraDefinition.6] section is missing entirely and it actually looks like you've somehow got hold of an FSX version of the aircraft.cfg file and copied it into your P3Dv4 installation. For example, the "title" entries are incorrect for the P3Dv4 version which should be, for example, "title=A2A Supermarine Spitfire Mk Ia N3249" and various other entries are wrong.

I think it might be best for you to reinstall the Spit. You shouldn't need to remove the existing repaints but please make sure you only copy the extra [fltsim.4] to [fltsim.11] sections from below back into the newly reinstalled aircraft.cfg.

Thanks,
Nick

Well...CRAPPOLOA!!!

I am so sorry to have contributed to the recent chaos with a self-inflicted issue... :oops: :oops: :oops:
That was clearly the result of late night mass cutting and pasting, likely while installing liveries with the assistance of adult beverages :roll:
I fixed it this morning and am really looking forward to flying it later! Again, sorry about that, Nick!!

Cheers,
Rob

No worries Rob! :mrgreen:

It was quite a useful learning opportunity for me to be honest: now I have a better idea of how the aircraft configurator works for this particular function.
