Problem with switching FS platforms with 1.1.2

Postby edakridge » Mon Jan 16, 2017 4:50 pm

We were doing some testing with 1.1.2 the other day. Two of us have both FSX and P3D installed. We identified a problem when switching back and forth between the two platforms. If you start the JoinFS client in either one or the other platform and run the model matching then shut down and start the other platform, no one can see you and you can't see others. Even if you run the model matching for this platform. The only way to cure this is to delete the model.txt during the switch. Is there a way to take a look at this for future versions?

P.S. Great Work! Overall an A+

thanks for the A+ :D I'm aiming for an A++ though.

That's a really good point that you've raised. I'll need to store both scans separately. Shouldn't be too much of a problem. I shall probably add a button to select which platform you are scanning.

JoinFS will be able to detect which version you're running and use the appropriate model list. Probably have to have separate model matching lists as well, but not really a problem.

Thanks for the heads up,
