There are multiple objects with the same name...
« on: July 18, 2013, 03:43:49 PM »
I just installed your latest fifteen packages and when starting FSX (Windows 7) this is the message I am getting:
"There are multiple objects with the same name. They must have unique titles names." Follows the name of the aircraft type.

When checking the said folders in the respective airplane folders, I cannot find any duplicates, hence I am unable to understand what I should do to rectify this situation. I would appreciate some help.

Incidentally, after this AI installation (the only change I made to FSX), I also get another new error message when starting FSX related to my scenery cfg file sending me to scenery 261 ... which does not exist!!! Would this be part of trhe same or different?

Thank you so much for your kind help.

Since FS is a 32 bit application the highest scenry cfg entry can be number 255.
Then it starts counting again.
So 255-261 means there's a problem with scnery cfg entry nr 6 ( look that one up and remove it).
The restart FSX.
When it functions normally then you found the error.
You then have to decide if you reapply the scenery and see if the error returns or reinstall the particular scenery.

Same goes for aircraft numbers, the highest AC number in an aircraft.cfg file can be 65256 and then it starts counting again  8)

Thank you for this explanation, both problems solved now. At my age, I never thought I'd have to learn how to count again!

regretfully I'm not understanding the solution to this issue, could you elaborate?
