Hi all, Congrats to Matthew for this more than useful utility. Only you, Matthew, will be able to solve the issue I bumped into on my first use of FSFO, as I don't see it among the known issues. I entered EKCH (Kastrup) as my destination airport. And a message told me the ICAO code is invalid. Nevertheless, it displayed all the runways correctly. I checked in your NavData.cfg and found EKCH. I asked for Airport Information in Options and I got everything about Kastrup. But EKCH stays red and I can't connect, which means FSFO is useless for now. A helping hand will be welcome. Regards Bernard
Me again. I tried another destination airport: EGLL. "La chaîne d'entrée n'est pas correcte" (my Windows speaks French). I also got this message before ICAO invalid, when I entered EKCH. Is it a language issue? ICAO codes are universal. Then, it would mean that FSFO doesn't work on non-English-speaking computers, wouldn't it? Best. B.

Unfortunately, you're the forth person to report this error. The commonality is all four users were using a French language pack. The error only occurs when FSFO computes the distance between airports. It works for all other languages except French. This won't a be a problem with V2 as it won't require you to enter ICAO. I apologize for this oversight.
Thank you for your answer. My linguistic options are already set to recognize full points instead of comas in numbers. Then, it has more to do with the language in general than with separations only, which is the usual issue. I could change the language over to English but then I would have problems with some other software which define the language after the geographical location of the user. Then, I shall do without FSFO until the next version. When will it be released? Best Bernard
