FMC RTE bug - Attempt to index a nil val

Recommended Posts

Hi and thank you for the bug report - I will try to recreate the same thing on my machine so we can fix it! We have possibly not caught it because no one would try to enter PASI on LSK6L ;) before...

Cheers, Jan

When I do the same thing, I get a message on the scratchpad "PROBLEM SAVING FILE"...

May I ask why you try to enter PASI on LSK6L?

It is possible that Tom has already changed something related to saving route files, and that we get this message now for 1.21 instead of the crash...I don´t quite remember right now ;-)

Cheers, Jan

I selected PASI on POS INIT, then on this screen my intention is to click LSK6L to copy it to the FMC clipboards so I can paste it into LSK1 as the 'Origin'.

STEPS TO REPLICATE

Select POS INIT

Enter PASI as the REF AIRPORT

Click RTE

Click LSK6L

Error

Just press LSK1L after clicking RTE, you don’t have to select 6L.

:D

you could skip the ref airport part :ph34r: or as I do, use simbrief to make your route, plan your fuel etc, save the fmc file to your co-routes folder then load it into the fmc.

Yeah, I never used the "ref airport" feature in the real plane - just go to the RTE page, type in PASI, hit LSK1L and you are good to go for ORIGIN.

Whatever is in the "scratchpad" (lowest line, where typed text appears) does NOT need to be selected by pushing LSK6L, it IS already selected and can be entered by pushing the relevant LSK (in this case 1L).

Nevertheless - the code should never crash, so if you do something "out of the ordinary" and you get the gizmo popup - by all means please let us know!!

Thanks, Jan
