Airport Web Generator 404 Error

Postby pb321 » Thu May 23, 2019 12:04 am

At the download stage of the Airport Web Generator, the following is displayed:
Not Found
The requested URL /tgweb/aptgen_5ce5dfe237f97.zip was not found on this server.
I have tried this with two different airports today with the same results (different .zip file, of course). The files are made to X-Plane Version 11.30 as target. I've also tried 11.00 as target with the same results. The 850 generation is not successful and the last line ends with something about "accumulator". Any ideas about what could be wrong?

I'm not aware of anyone currently supporting the web generator, but there may be folks still using it that could offer some guidance. I believe the author separated from the project about four years ago.

Changes to the code have been made within the last two years (see viewtopic.php?f=5&t=31687&p=320211&hilit=Web+generator#p319514 ), so I have hope. It's been very a very useful online app!

Found out that problematic files may have used the new "Convert To" [Taxiway, Airport Line Marking, Line] incorrectly (for example, converting "lib/airport/lines/safety_area_yellow.pol" to a taxiway instead of an airport line marking). File may need to be validated with a format version less than or equal to 1100, if necessary, even if validated to 1130 or above. I have been able to get most of the files through the Airport Web Generator if these restrictions are met.
Bottom line: The Airport Web Generator is still a useful tool for quick airport generation without TerraGear!
