You could see if there’s one in our default NavData.

Good morning, I have fsx with 737 PMDGs, I kindly ask if someone can copy the LIRN.txt file to me in the Sid and Stars folder, because mine is corrupt. Path: C/Programs/Microsoft Games/Microsoft Simulator X/PMDG/SIDSTARS,

On my next flight I will check and see if I get any SID/STAR reports.

EDIT:I got a departure SID report. Not sure about arrival. I was over 500 nm away when I checked it. Seems to have been fixed now. Thanks Stephen and Cheryl.

Thanks, it looks like I've got to modify the decoding software for PMDG formats slightly, it seems to vary slightly from country or file to file. I am not decoding the SIDs in your file. I will include the fix in the next beta posting.
 
Cheers
Stephen
 
P.S.
 
Corrected the decoding problem so you should have PMDG SIDs data now at these airports. I will see about posting the new beta soon which includes the PLN file Importing and automatic importing when a flight plan is activated within FSX.

Yes, for client side control try specifying the server's computer name (unique) instead of the IP address. Also make sure you have set your server's Networking and Sharing Centre for File and Printer sharing.
As for the PMDG SIDSTARS, check your SIDSTARS file contents, open the stations file with Notepad and have a look at the contents. You cam email me one file, just one, that's all I need to compare†the format†with mine.

My navdata directories all coincide with what you have listed Stephen. I made sure to reprocess and to force a weather update after I had changed the navdata directory and each time it told me I had no sid and stars located for the sid star report. Will keep trying different techniques.

Hello, problem solved, I have not changed my shares, by cons I removed the IP address of the PC in FSX configures FSXCLIENT.EXE by the name FSX PC. and everything is back to normal. it is better to put the name of the PC, as to its IP address.

That's an easy one. You must set the sharing, sharing permissions, and security permissions on your server for the OpusFSX installation drive and folder. That way the client will be able to access the files in your OpusFSX\Themes folder on your server. See the Getting Started Guide for Networked PCs for details. Note you will need to make sure you have the Everyone user group set to Full Control in both sets of permissions. The guide gives details of how to do this.

See also the LWE Client Control topic below this one.

Hello, I am asking the community Opus FSx it concerns the weather reports on the client PC. I have a message "access denied" on the notepad. I read the reports of PC fsx on the client PC via my network but when I press a button show puts access denied.
Regarding the communication between two PCs for all weather
  works.
I'm on W7 64 bit, I have a firewall bitdefender I authorize sharing.
If a person with the same configuration and it works he can let me know.

Hi Russian, I had a similar problem yesterday with a route foe EDDK to KSDF. I got the route from RW flight plans (free Internet) when Opus wouldn't decode it I checked the text string and it had flight level info in it. I eventually got a route from route finder Opus decoded this one without problem. Because of the amount of waypoints it did take longer then normal I ended up opening the spy window to check what was happening. When the wheels stopped churning I had a mass of available information at my fingertips, this was the first time I had actually tried the new addition, due to being away all weekend fishing at Ancaster. I thought it was absolutely brilliant. A major step forward.

Have you looked to see what data you actually have on your system. I have just done the same and it works perfectly. I have the <FSX>\PMDG\NAVDATA and <FSX>\PMDG\SIDSTARS folders, with ICAO.txt type files in the SIDSTARS folder.
Do you have this data and does the FSXSERVER program have access rights to this data on your system. Sharing, sharing permissions (Everyone group), and security permissions (Everyone group).
You must also select the 'Reload' or 'Process a flight plan' in the FPA dialog after changing the folder location, or exit the dialog.

I have installed the latest BETA 3.12.0 and have entered in my flight plan and processed it and tried a weather update with my navdata directory set to C:\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\PMDG\NAVDATA and the SID/STAR report still shows no data.

I repeated the same steps with the directory set to C:\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\PMDG\SIDSTARS and the report still showed no data.

That might do the trick to, I only care that all of the add ons that use a cycle are on the same cycle, I don't do real world flying so I don't care for the latest cycles, I only update after installing a new add on that uses a newer cycle sort of to keep my stuff aligned.
I'm already happy that the iFly737 now works and that I can use it, buying a PMDG product only for that data would have been a bit crazy.

Most people have some products that use Navigraph data so I don't feel its going to be a major problem with the SIDs and STARs. We may even provide an Opus download of the 'out of date' Navigraph data including the SIDs and STARs for users to download and install separate to OpusFSX.

I don't think we will be including that since all Navigraph data is supplied in a text format and I really do not want to decode an exel spreadsheet.
 
You only need to reference one set of data so its no big problem.

Great job on the iFly Stephen, works 100 percent, still one more challenge to go, a big one I think, Feelthere Wilco!! They have a folder called "nd" and in that folder a gigantic exel file with all the navigational data going from navaids and stuff up to RWY lengths and surfaces and all kinds of freqeuncies, I allready zipped it up and will send it ASAP. this folder is in c:\FSX\Feelthere\nd so not in an airplane version folder, that are all separate folders.

I've just set mine to D:\FSX\PMDG\NAVDATA\ and located the correct D:\FSX\PMDG\SIDSTARS data using beta 3.12.0 so it should be OK. Remember to click on Process the Flight Plan option to get it to decode the SIDs and STARs and build the report.

The NAVDATA is the correct folder but download and install the latest 3.12.0 beta which has the corrected search algorithm. It should find your <FSX>\PMDG\SIDSTARS folder correctly and decode the relevant ICAO.txt files in the PMDG format. Any problems then get back to me and I will have a look.

I have my NAVDATA folder defined as C:\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\PMDG\NAVDATA in OPUS flightplan option and I don't have any data available for SID and STAR report. Is that the correct directory or do I need to change it to C:\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\PMDG\SIDSTARS

I have in fact corrected a few shortcomings in the SID and STAR data access, so that the current software (next beta) will now check for every combination of folder structure involing Navdata, Proc, SIDS, STARS, and SIDSTARS folders, and every combination of .txt, .sid, and .star file extensions. I have a few more things to add and check to other parts of the interface before posting the next beta, which will include the much anticipated client side LWE control. So no real worries or problems.

Herman's SIDS and STARS folders are actually in sub-folders of <FSX>\iFly\737NG\navdata, this is the folder that should be identified but the current beta will then look in <FSX>\iFly\737NG for the folders. I have changed the software so it will look in both places so provided you identify the 'navdata' folder to the FPA it should find them.

The mod will be in the next beta 3.12.0 which includes the client side control of the LWE, including client side entry of the user's flight plan, destination, cruise altitude etc..

Hi Stephen and Herman.
If I point to c:/fsx/ifly/737NG/navdata then no SIDS or STARS show in the notepad window it reports none available or words to that effect. If I then change to point to c:/FSX/navigraph/navdata, then a full list shows up. Indicating as you said Stephen and as Herman has indicated that the Ifly navdata is not being interpreted.
The ifly SIDS and STARS are in there own sub folders of /737ng/Navdata. The ifly 747 is set up in the same way.
I suppose it explains why navigraph publish so many different modules because different sim houses have there own way of doing things. Ie the ifly won't work for PMDG. PMDG won't work with LevelD. LevelD won't work with wilco.....ect ect.

Then clearly the software is looking in the wrong place. I have been trying to get confirmation from you of where these files are actually located, and have said where I was led to believe they were in the above posts and when the software was developed.

I will make the changes in the next beta.

they are subfolders in the iFly 737 navdata folder like I mentioned several posts earlier. If I move them out of there then I'm scared the 737's FMC wont work anymore like it's suposed to.

If your SIDS and STARS folders are in your Navdata folder then this is a different location than I first thought so I will have to modify the software to check for these sub-folders. Not sure if it already does this.

Being Administrator makes no difference, you are not the program. You will still have to check everything so the program can access the files.
You keep saying confusing things. Where exactly are the SIDS and STARS folders ?
I mentioned above where they are expected to be. They must NOT be in the Navdata folder, but in the iFly folder as mentioned a few times above.
My iFly works flawlessly with your navdata files.

I checked all that and it is okay, I installed Windows XP pro myself on my system wich makes me the administrator, Opus can find the .txt files for the METAR and weather reports inside that exact same folder, the "SIDS" and "STARS" folders are two separate folders in the same "navdata" folder as mentioned above by solentflyer. I copied the navdata folder to C:\ and put that in Opus and still no luck.
Is there somebody else here with an iFly 737 willing to test this if it works on his system?

You must check more than just sharing, please see above. You must check the sharing permissions AND security permissions, that's three separate checks.
 
I already have ALL your files installed on my system. You keep calling the folder SID, I assume you mean SIDS (plural), otherwise the LWE will no find it.
 
Your .sid files are identical to mine, because mine are yours. Please fully check and even set your sharing and security permissions.

The FSX folder already was shared, I shared the iFly folder extra and the navdata folder inside to just to be on the sure side and no, it doesn't work and I don't know what you did in unzipping what I send you, I zipped a copy of the SID folder, deleted the copy and then unzipped the zip but I don't see any .txt format files inside?? only the files with the extensions mentioned in a previous post

All the .sid and .star ARE text format assuming they are the same files you sent me.
 
I have done the exact same thing here and it works so your system is either stopping the FSXSERVER program accessing these files or you have missed something that I have mentioned above.
 
Are the SIDS and STARS sub-folders, sub-folders of <FSX>iFly or <FSX>\iFly\Navdata ?
 
Have you checked the sharing, sharing permissions, and security permissions on these folders.

I put the following link in Opus  C:\programfiles\FSX\iFly\navdata bud it doesn't work, I don't see any .txt formats in the subfolders "SIDS" and "STARS" only extensions like .sid, .sidtrs, .star etc, they can be opend however with notepad and look like a .txt format then but standard they're not.
I used the good folder in the FPL from Opus els the METAR thing wouldn't have worked and with that there is no problem because the navaids and waypoints are in .txt format.

I have just created an <FSX>\iFly\Navdata folder and copied all your supplied files into <FSX>\iFly\SIDS and <FSX>\iFly\STARS folders.
 
I have then decoded all your SIDS and STARS data with absolutely no problem. Make sure the software can access your folders and then check yourself that the relevant ICAO.sid and ICAO.star files exist. I assume you are running FSX and have specified your destination, and are located at an airport that has SIDs.
