SYSTEM.cfg bug

Using the save & sync now updates the system.cfg file and alters the default_bank_mode=1 and maybe default_pitch_mode=1

I have default_bank_mode=3 and it keeps reverting back to 1.

Please fix this next update.

Hello @Flysimware

@OzWookiee Actually, creating a post on DevSupport to report the issue so we can address it is the good thing to do here :)

With SU10 will come a new version of the AircraftEditor tool. The UI and parsing logic was rewritten.
I ran some tests with this tool and don't have the issue you describe so I suspect the new tool will fix this bug.

In case, you end up in a specific case that we haven't reproduced yet, make sure you test the tool when SU10 flighting starts and come back to us here so we can further investigate.

Regards,
Sylvain

@FlyingRaccoon unfortunately I'm not willing to jepordise my projects by using the AE as it has been broken for far too long. It's a TREMENDOUS idea and honestly should have been a focus to fix very early to drive further adoption. Unfortunately most developers I know ( granted I don't know everyone ;) ) do not use the AE to enter any data as too often it will break their work and set them back several days, weeks ( ahh isn't exagerration wonderful?) whilst they find out exactly what the issue was.


The tools inside the AE are wonderful and it really is a fantastic idea and I am very MUCH looking forward to SU10 potentially fixing it, however, once bitten twice shy and this particular spider has bitten more than once so regardless of how much I look forward to the update, I'll also be very much trepidacious and sparing in my use.

Also, what's the trick with tagging people as just doing an @ and typing their name isn't working.

I'll post a dedicated question about this.

I totally understand the frustration. The AE needed attention and we now have a developer working full time on it.

Now we just need to setup a good loop where people use the tool and provide feedback so we keep improving it.
I'm optimistic we'll turn this spider into a cat eventually :)

However, I'm not sure how you would lose weeks or even days of work. Aren't you using a versioning tool?

We need to reach the threshold where there are more benefits to use the AE over a text editor. So we'll keep working in that direction and use your feedback as much as possible.
The SU10 version is just the first step.

Sylvain
