Duplicate Files

  • Can anyone please explain to me why I am getting duplicate files.

    I have followed the correct process and I have 48 BMP files and 48 matching TFW files - NONE of these are duplicates.

    As an example I place 3 BMP with their matching TFW files in the input_aerial_images - then I run the config-sample-only batch file (all setting are correct)

    When this has run I copy the files from the scenery/images folder contents to the \Documents\Aerofly FS 2\scenery\images

    I then run Aerofly FS2 and the scenery is there, it's great.


    Where I have a problem is I downloaded a rather large area and I need to run 1 BMP with its matching TFW file at a time due to the size (level 14)

    I go through the normal process and run 1 BMP file and it's matching TFW, I copy the scenery/images folder contents to the \Documents\Aerofly FS 2\scenery\images

    I then run the second BMP file and its matching TFW, I copy the scenery/images folder contents to the \Documents\Aerofly FS 2\scenery\images and it tells me there are duplicates. This has me confused as the data in each TFW file is different....... where am I going wrong?

  • Hi Rodeo,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Here is my issue.

    I Downloaded a big area:


    48 tiles in total.

    I grabbed the NW and SE Lat / Long (clicked the C button).

    Copy & pasted this into into: http://ndgrad.co.uk/fs2/fset2tmc/

    I selected levels: 9,11,12,13,14 then converted.

    Then I did a copy & paste of the results into: config-sample-only

    I then ran inf2tfwConverter - and in the end I had 48 BMP files and 48 TFW files.

    I then ran config-sample-only.bat and GeoConvert crashed after a while (only have 16gb of RAM)

    So I decided to run with 1 BMP file and it's TFW file at a time.

    I then copy the scenery/image output and paste this into \Documents\Aerofly FS 2\scenery\images.

    When I run through this process with the second BMP file and it's TFW and paste it into \Documents\Aerofly FS 2\scenery\images - it tells me this is a duplicate.

    If I say yes and over ride it the first tile is not in Aerofly FS2 and the second one is.


    What is the best way to run these individualy, I have 48 BMP and 48 TFW files: (not all shown here)



    Thanks in advance for your assistance :-)


    Cheers,

  • Hi,


    just suggestions:


    Make 2 TMC with straight coordinates directly adjacent to each other.

    This means only 24 BMP per geoconversion.

    You may get a few duplicates along the boundary.

    As I said before, delete the duplicates and the ...mask files with the same name.


    You can also try to run the levels separately, at least higher levels above 11.

  • Hi Rodeo,

    I have tried all that and then thought, why not create a folder for each tile in \Documents\Aerofly FS 2\scenery\images

    cb1,cb2,cb3,cb4 and that works except I have a black line between each tile and a massive black area surrounding the tiles.

    I am having fun trying all these things but it's getting frustrating :-(

    Thanks for your help :-)
