Well, it's kind of redundant to point this out, but there is an official repository, and it was actually checked whether all aircraft there play nice with the launcher and these which were not were modified accordingly (that's the dreaded gatekeeping and maintenance process FGMEMBERS strives to avoid).

So if it is on FGAddon, it's our problem to make sure it runs with the core code, if you fork it and change it as you like, it becomes your problem. As simple as that. :-)

Btw.: I also think that was funny...

+1, but to be honest - you would probably see many other names there, beyond just Jabberwocky's ;-)

I admit, I love it when Thorsten stumbles over his own feet sometimes. So all the planes at FGADDOON are tested? Because there are some that can't even be started under 3.4 ... lmao!

I wasn't even aware that someone took the time to actually test all fgaddon aircraft with the new launcher - that is indeed good to know, but also not as common as one might think, especially keeping in mind that the launcher is an optional feature.
