I have noticed that since Wednesdays update, when generating repaints using the standard Aerofly FS2 Aircraft Converter, no preview image is being generated. I have only tried this with the Q400 so far. does anyone have any ideas for a work around for this?
The converter has not been updated yet I think. If you check the converter's tm.log you should see why it crashes when it tries to load the aircraft for the preview generation. It still works if you have a simple tmd.
Where would I find the converters tm.log?
I see the aerofly_fs2_aircraft_converter.exe, and would expect any tm.log associated with that to be located together, but there isn't one there.
I believe the file you seek is called report.txt
You find it under My Documents/Aerofly FS2 Aircraft Converter
It's called tm_aircraft_converter.log
So it is,
Having looked at this, I prefer not to look at this file, it's not nice , lots of errors and warnings
narrow hull....what ever they are .... and
is not a member of type....mainly the new modular engine stuff..perhaps new converter needed
Ah well, more info for my elderly brain to digest
I am guessing that this is the part where the preview is being attempted to be created...

We have just updated the SDK Tools to make them compatible with Aerofly FS 2 Version 2.04.07.17.
Please uninstall the Aircraft Converter 'BEFORE' installing the latest version. The new version is now installed only for the current user and no longer requires elevated privileges.
The DR400 has been updated as well and needs to be converted using the new Aircraft Converter to make it compatible with Aerofly FS 2 Version 2.04.07.17.
Awesome! Thank you!
