<[string8][extra_user_folder][]> has disappeared from main.mcf

  • Hi Jeff,

    I am running the BETA version of AFS2 and noticed my scenery has disappeared and I am unable to locate the entry: <[string8][extra_user_folder][]>

    I proceeded to add it manually to main.cmf but as soon as I run AFS2 my entry is not in the main.cmf anymore, any ideas why this might happen?

    Thanks in advance,

    Paul

  • Hi Paul, I can't reproduce it on my standard Steam installation of the Aerofly FS 2. The line is default empty and I can add a new folder and then the scenery shows up as it should.

    Are you running Aerofly in normal desktop mode or in VR?


    Could you maybe add your line again manually, start aerofly and then close it again and then attach your main.mcf (with the line added) and your tm.log (each as text files *.txt), maybe we can spot a mistake.

    Hi Jan,

    I am running on desktop mode in BETA.

    I change the line in main.mcf from <[string8][extra_user_folder][]> to my own <[string8][H:\Documents\Aerofly FS 2\addons\scenery][]> and save it.

    Then I run AFS2 and my scenery does not show.

    I then exit AFS2, open the main.mcf and it has reverted back to <[string8][extra_user_folder][]> .

    Very strange.

    Thanks for your assistance :-)

  • Try editing it in Administrator mode. Sometimes W10 is preventing such modifications without warning.


    Good luck

    I tried that Antoine, no luck :-( - I have also reverted back to normal edition rather than BETA, same issue :-(

  • hard luck, but then it doesn't seem to be related to the upgrade itself.

    Did you double check the syntax, especially the slashes?


    I also had quite a lot of troubles to make it initially work. For some reason I couldn't explain, it first worked when I named my user folder 'user_folder'.

    Before that, the line wasn't erased from main.cfg but sceneries placed inside my external folder were never being loaded by AFS2.


    Good luck with your issue.

    Cheers

  • Your folder path is not correct, it should end in the main directory of the user folder, not in the subfolder scenery!

    Delete the last bit with "\scenery" and try again

    Jan, I did as you suggested, it made no difference. No matter what I put in as folder path, AFS2 just reverts back to the default: <[string8][extra_user_folder][]>

  • If someone could delete their main.cmf, start AFS2, get out of AFS2, add the folder path to main.cmf, start AFS2 and see if scenery turns up/re-check main.cmf and see if it reverted back to its original state.

  • Hi Rodeo,

    Thank you for your help, now it is working again: <[string8][extra_user_folder][H:\Documents\Aerofly FS 2\addons\]>

    I am smiling once again :):)

    Cheers,
