D-ALAM – A320 Sharklet Model

Für viele Nutzer von JeeHell gab es bisher kein Sharklet Modell des A320 CFG und IAE. Im Internet ist nun ein Download zu finden. Wie ich diese in JeeHell in Zusammenarbeit mit Peter Fuss eingebunden habe, erkläre ich hier.

Achtung: Dies ist keine Anleitung sondern dokumentiert lediglich mein Vorgehen. Nachmachen auf eigene Gefahr!

Ich habe nur das CFM Modell verwendet, und eine Kopie des Aircraft Ordner „A320-214“ in „A320-214_SL“ gemacht.

Die neue „A320_200_CFM_SL.mdl“ Datei habe ich in ein neues Verzeichnis „A320-214_SL\Model“ kopiert. Dort muss auch eine „model.cfg“ Datei angelegt werden, mit folgendem Inhalt.

[models]
normal=A320_200_CFM_SL

Dann noch folgende Anpassungen in der „A320-214_SL\aircraft.cfg“ machen:

In den Sektionen [fltsim.x] muss auf das richtige Model verwiesen werden und der Texture Eintrag sollte auf eine Sharklet Texture verweisen (die man natürlich separat herunterladen muss).

Batch file to backup and merge JeeHell Config after update

I’ve searched for an easy way to backup my \A320FMGS\ folder in front of an JeeHell Update. After each update I need to merge the existing configuration files with the files of the backup.

This little batch file is doing this now…

Use this script on your own risk. Now warrenty nor support!

Requirements

The batch file

@echo off

rem ---------- SET DEFAULT DIRECTORIES ----------------
set pathOrg=P:\A320FMGS
set pathBkp=P:\A320FMGS - Kopie

set pathWinMerge=C:\Program Files (x86)\WinMerge\WinMergeU.exe

How it works

  1. Set the path of the Original \A320FMGS folder
  2. Set the path of the Backup folder (make sure that is does not exist)
  3. Copy Original folder to Backup folder
  4. Wait for you to complete your JeeHell FMGS Update
  5. Continue the batch file opens WinMerge (external program) three times to make sure each and every config item is correct. Save the files
  6. Batch file closes

Installation

  1. Copy the script in a batch file (peroJeeHellBackupMerge.cmd)
  2. Adjust the path settings
  3. Save it in the parent folder of your A320FMGS folder
    (Example: D:\A320FMGS\ place it to D:\)
