My first post here; sorry if this has been covered before.

None of the navigational beacons on planets are detected by the DGII on my system (for example
the VOR at Cape Canaveral, the landing pad VTOL beams at Cape Canaveral and Brighton Beach
on the Moon).  Beacons to the docking ports on the ISS seem to work fine.

All of the other craft supplied with Orbiter detect the beacons.  I am patched through the 030303
version of explorer, and have v2.5 or OrbiterSound and the DGII from the link on Dan's main page.

Thanks for any help!

Hi Everybody --

Is no one else having this same problem?  Please let me know if the ground based NAV beacons
are or aren't working for you with the DGII.  

Thanks again,

Lee

Hello Lee.

All my Radio freq's seem to work fine. :wonder: I use the Com/NAV radio to enter the numbers I
find on the Control - I list and it seems ok. I have landed at Brighton beach, Mars ( olympus ) and
Earth KSC.

On the DG2 there are 2 chanels you can enter. I usualy enter KSC main beacon for number 1 (
top ) and the landing pad for chanel 2 ( bottom ).. I then use the VOR / VTOL MFD and click the NAV
button top left to switch between the 2 chanels I set up in Coms...

All looks good for this pilot.

Michelle

Thanks Michelle --

Apparently it has something to do with my setup.  I've installed fresh copies of Orbiter (including
patches 1-3), OrbiterSound, and then the DGII.

All ships other than the DGII work fine with the ground-based VOR's, but the DGII doesn't see
them.

Dan, if you have any questions about my machine or software setup, please email me at leemon1
[at]yahoo[dot]com.

Thanks,

Lee

Hello Lee,

Sorry but I don't have any clue what is happening here
this problem was never reported and I don't see any logic
or any part of my code that would cause this problem.
(I would hardly also see any hardware reason that can cause that)

none of my code deal with nav appart the common
declarator: InitNavRadios (2); which is stricly the same
line code than the stock deltaglider...

What you can do howewer is to find a scenery where the
stock deltaglider work and replace the line:


GL-01:DeltaGlider

by:

GL-01:DeltaGliderII


try this and tell me if this make any change

Yea, thats what I'm thinking, its the scenario that the problem and not the DGII. Let us know Lee.

Having two types of scenarios - one where stations are stations and one where stations are
vessels - has caused a bit of confusion for many. Especially the noobies.

In this case though, dealing with bases, I'm not sure whats going on.

My stupidity   -- somehow I convinced myself that the ground bases and pads would show up on
the docking MFD, and completely overlooked the VTOL MFD.  Since they look similar, when I
brought up the original DeltaGlider with the VTOL MFD and the DGII with the docking MFD I
thought they were the same instrument.  *sigh*

Oh well, sorry for the noobie turmoil.  :-)  On the positive side I've handled the orbital mechanics
tasks pretty well and haven't launched myself into the Sun yet.  ha...

Thanks Dan for all the work on the DGII!  I've flown it to the ISS and a Lunar landing so far.
