"Failed to open sectorfile extension"


Recommended Posts

This is simply because you are loading my_sector_name.sct when no my_sector_name.ese exists (see the line above the error message). It is perfectly normal for ES to do this.

 

If you would like to know more about the ESE file, please read the docs.

 

I seen that. Now a big question, Do we have to build our own .ESE files? Is there a way to generate this file?

I looked at the .ESE file that came with it and I surely couldn't do that one my self. Most I figured out how ever

when I loaded my .SCT file there were only about 10 airports and no VORs from my .SCT file. Had VORs from

someplace I've never seen but none from the sector I contrl. If we have to build an .ESE file to get all this the

program is worthless to us none designers. Looks good however.

Hello Everybody,

 

If you have a .POF file (from ARSC) renaming it in a way as Alberto showed may serve as your initial (!!!) .ESE file. Only thing you have to do is write a [POSITIONS] to the beginning of the file. To learn more about how to get on with the .ESE file, read more here: http://www.euroscope.hu/wiki/index.php?page=ESE_Files_Description . This initial .ESE file will not work as a fully function one, but at least the error message will disappear and your neighboring controllers will be named as usual.

 

Am I right?

Hi all,

 

In the previous WEB site we had a quick guide how to use your original SCT and POF files without the hard work of a complete ESE file creation needs. But seems it is missing from the current version. Therefore I extended now the WIKI Quick Start (http://euroscope.hu/wiki/index.php?page=Quick_Start) page with it. Look for the "How To Use Existing Sector And Position Files" section.

Good evening,

 

I am sorry but I have been unable to solve this problem after reading the manual, the htm file for *.asr and *.ese files, etc. I have done all those modifications to my sector file and created a new *.ese file without any success.

 

Unfortunately, I can neither have my profiles saved after each session and impossible to configure the colours as I have them in VRC.

 

Will continue reading and hope to find any solution by tomorrow.

 

In any case, thanks Gergely for your effort.

I tried renameing the POF file to ESE. All I got was no errors.

Also I loaded the Hungary sct and ese to see how it worked. and now everything I open only shows the Hungary VORs.

I can't see any Local VORs

I can't find anything on "How to Build Your Own" ESE File just to make a few changes.

I also get an error that says VAtsim DATA older than 20 minutes. What to do?

Thanks Earl

Earl,

 

Just renaming the POF to ESE is not enough. Please read the http://euroscope.hu/wiki/index.php?page=Quick_Start what you should do with it.

 

I think that after loading the Hungary sectorfile you also created a new ASR file that describes what to display from the sectrofile. You saved it and after loading your own sectorfile still this ASR is active. And it drives EuroScope to display the VORs etc. that were visible when Hungarian sectorfile was opened. This is why you see only the items in Hungary even after opening another sectorfile. I suggest you to create a new ASR file after loading the sectorfile. It is available via the Sector/New menu.

 

There is no "How to Build Your Own ESE" file. It is not intended individuals to create such files. It is supposed that each FIR should build them centrally and distribute to the controllers.

 

The "VATSIM data is older than 20 minutes" indicates that VATSIM who is online statisical WEB site shows only too late information. EuroScope will not use these data to show the planes outside of your range. But it does not effect the controlling possibilities.
