Creating alternate Xbox version

I have an alternate xbox version because we can't use wasm files. And I also have less aircraft entries. Su11 I had no issue loading both projects. Now since they have different amount of aircraft entries in the aircraft.cfg i find one of the projects keeps crashing the sim. And If I build a fresh projects i can get it working but the other breaks. I have tried altering names and still no lick getting both to work. I also have to consider the uploader if i upload both packages separately.

So what changed and what must I do to get both projects to load and no issues uploading to the market place?

Update: I found using the build all rather than the external seems to have fixed the issue. Please confirm the latest SDK external build has an issue.

Hello @Flysimware

There is no such things as an "external build".
fspackagetool.exe uses the game exe to build your package.
Maybe there are some issues when arguments are passed. If you provide us with a full dump file, we can have a look at what's causing the crash.

What I mean by external build is the fspackagetool.exe. And for internal is the Build all button.

it's also not always a crash sometimes it just hangs. I now believe the issue is the new project editor mixed with copied projects that do not match for model folders and aircraft entries.

If I make a project copy then decide to remove 8 aircraft entries from the12 entries and the panel and model folders that go to those 8 entries the project editor hangs and the sim is stuck. When I use the sync or the fspackagetool.exe the project no longer loads where the older project editor it was fine to have two working projects with different amount of aircraft entries. So as I stated in my update I was able to fix this issue by using the Build ALL.

So for some reason the new project editor is causing this new bug as I have not changed anything in months but decided to run my three projects that are slightly different projects. It's like there is a conflict with having the same projects with slight changes.
