To LM: Proposal SimConnect + UTF-8, please confirm as read

SimConnect handles file paths so far in 8-bit coding, local character sets other than Latin are not supported. I suggest passing file paths as UTF-8 in the future. This supports Asian languages, but backward compatibility is still preserved. Since add-on developers use the SimConnect.lib version 4.0...

Re: Dll Gauge SimConnect Version Error

64-bit DLL add-ons do not use the old simconnect.dll's. You need to link your DLL with the SimConnect.lib (SimConnectDebug.lib) library of the v4 SDK. This library statically contains the functions of the old simconnect.dll.

Re: Virtual Cockpit Only - Doesn't load correct terrain elevation

I can confirm that and complete it. If you save the default scenario with Virtual Cockpit only, the aircraft is completely white internally and externally after restarting the P3D4. No texture available.

Re: Blacklisted DLLs

Maybe you will find an answer from the developers of X-Plane. Here is an article that perhaps describes this problem and a solution. It starts with the headline "My Plugin Won't Reload". What do you think about?

Re: Autogen xml file, utf-8 or utf-16?

Assume all xml and cfg (text) files are utf16 in P3Dv4.
You can not say that generalised. The different dll.xml are just Windows-1252 without BOM.

Re: Prepar3Dv4 scenery.cfg for the reading problem

Previously, the Scenery.cfg was a text file with a normal 8 bit character set. Since v4 it is a text file with 16 bit character set. This can not read older unprepared applications.

Re: TACAN navaids behaviour

Nor does the navaid database include any TACAN-only stations. That's not quite right. When reading the scenery from v4, several correct TACANs appear. These have the internal ID 0xA0.

In 2020, the Microsoft support for Windows 7 ends, and no software developer takes more consideration for compatibility with this system.

Re: Addon Scenery

Scenery.cfg is the primary way around sceneries. All other methods are nonsense and make the matter unclear and lead to errors. FSTramp only supports Scenery.cfg

Bug v4 fix1: Scenario Edit - Location

Comprehensible process:

Airplane is in the air.
Open dialog box Scenario Edit.
Open dialog box Change Airport or Change Location.
Close both dialog boxes with Cancel.

Completely unnecessary is tried to load scenery data.
The aircraft has speed zero and crashes down.
