Of course. Did you follow the section in the Docomeentation on model matching? Are you having specific problems, or was that just a general question. Suggest you read the product docomeentation and the Tips, Tricks, FAQ and Troubleshooting Guide.

As a newbee and having done all the reading and much time researching feel I'm now entitled to seek help under this heading.

 

From my research now appreciate that the FSX default aircraft include a Piper PA28 Cherokee 180 "AI Only" instance.

 

Have successfully added to FSX a Piper PA28 Warrior II. Running a test to add this aircraft produced the following error message "Failed to create test aircraft with model "Piper Cherokee 180" from rule set "FSX Default Aircraft". The message repeated three times.

 

Accordingly set about creating my own Model Matching Set Rule using the template provided:

 

<?xml version=”1.0” encoding=”utf-8”?>

 

Pressing the Add Custom Files button produces the error message that there is an error (3, 2) in the file. Will you please clarify the error which this code signifies?

 

Can confirm that FSX was running at the time with said Warrior II active and parked at the YSCB General Aviation area. Connection to the simulator was confirmed.

 

Will appreciate your [Mod - Happy Thoughts]istance.

When I copied and pasted your file contents into a .vmr file on my machine, it loaded into vPilot without a problem. I did have to convert the "fancy" double quotes into regular double quotes, but that's most likely just a result of copying and pasting from the forum page.

 

You could try emailing the file to me at vatsim \at\ metacraft /dotcom/

Thank you Ross.

 

Changed the fancy parenthesis as you suggested. Used Wordpad. Big mistake. Couldn't for the life of me save the file as anything but "vmr.txt" despite being the "All files" type. Finally changed to Notepad and in the "All files" type saved the file as .vmr.

 

Successfully added my custom file. Then ran the test and got this result:

 

[07:35:11.046] Model matching rule set test started

[07:35:11.734] Failed to create test aircraft with model "Piper Cherokee 180" from rule set "FSX Default Aircraft.vmr"

[07:35:11.810] Failed to create test aircraft with model "Piper Cherokee 180 Paint1" from rule set "FSX Default Aircraft.vmr"

[07:35:11.846] Failed to create test aircraft with model "Piper Cherokee 180 Paint2" from rule set "FSX Default Aircraft.vmr"

[07:35:20.752] Failed to create test aircraft with model "PA28-161 Warrior II" from rule set "PA28-161 Warrior II.vmr"

 

 

Whereto next?

 

Cheers,

Ian

Those errors mean that the sim was not able to create the aircraft for some reason. Unfortunately, the sim only tells vPilot that it failed to create the object ... it doesn't say why. Could be that you have a typo in the model name, or the model isn't installed correctly for some reason, or it has a missing texture or panel file, etc.

 

Are you 100% sure that you have the model name correct, and that the aircraft is actually installed in a folder that the sim is loading objects from?

Seems my undoing was confusion between similar file and model names. Left it all behind for a couple of days away and on return did a complete audit. Having validated the names issue could still not p[Mod - Happy Thoughts] the test sequence. Came down to my editor in portrait mode inserting an unprintable character at line end while entering the ModelName field. Switched the editor to landscape mode and got the field entered correctly. So now I'm ready to fly.

 

Thank you Ross.
