hello, I just purchased FSFS 2020 for x plane 11, and after installing and testing it out a little, I went through the "generate runway data & quit FSFS" process. after closing and reopening, i got the following error:

"Error: 13 - Type mismatch
location: LoadRunways
File Read: c:\Users\micky\Desktop\x-plane 11\FSFSRwXP.txt
Status: Processing runway line 20388"

looking at the referenced file FSFSRWXP.txt (note that the error read of the 'w' as lower case but the actual file is all uppers) this is what I see, including the line before and after:

20387 16|166|N49_22_1227|E26_55_8195|3|UKLH.UKLH|1150|7189|140|||CONCRETE||166|49.349569|26.937603||KHMELNYTSKYI|-1|49.368711|26.930325|N

anyone had this problem before? the only way I can get the program to work is by deleting the files generated above (fsfstaxi.txt, fsfsrwxp.txt) but then I keep getting horrifyingly low approach/landing scores and in the log it says its because there's no glide slope or alignment data available. I've tried this at several airports ranging from non-towered to international airports with ILS and it's the same at every one, no glide slope or rwy alignment info available. I'm guessing that generating the runway data is needed in order to solve this problem, but generating the data breaks the program!!! please help!

also, here's a link to the full fsfsrwxp.txt in case that helps...
fsfsrwxp.txt



edit:
I just wanted to add an excerpt from my log book clarify whats going on:

Landing included the following problems:
No glideslope information was available on visual approach.
No runway alignment information was available on visual approach.
Landed without a proper approach OR off runway surface.
No glideslope - could not compare flare to glideslope.


this flight was from and to KSBP (san luis obispo, Ca) on rwy 29 which has a 4 light PAPI system and ILS available (but not tuned)

I'm inferring that it can't find the necessary info because I haven't successfully been able to generate runway data, right?

Hi Andorian:

The problem is that there is an airport with an invalid name in your X-Plane installation.

It involves the "[X]" indication in their name. There are many such airports.

There is an airport called, for example:

"[X] Coyner Airstrip"

and this is no problem at all.

The problem was caused by an airport called:

"|X] Marigny le Grand"


The problem is that the X is not surrounded by a left and right square bracket.

It is not like this [X]

but is like this |X]

and as we can see the character is not the left square bracket.

NOTE: Marigny le Grand is the only airport which has this problem.

There is no problem whatsoever with X airports - the problem is with the "|" character in the name of this airport.


We have reported this to the X-Plane airport site so that this can be changed in the X-Plane airports data.



To solve this on your PC you can delete the TWO LINES for this airport in the FSFSRWXP.txt file in the X-Plane folder.

Just open the file with notepad and delete the two lines for this airport...

Marigny le Grand

I have the same problem. I successfully installed & registered FSFS 2020 for X-Plane. Created my runway data. First time, it worked fine from what I could tell. Next attempt, I get the error 13 type mismatch message. No matter WHAT airport I am ready on with the standard c172 in XP 11. How am I supposed to find every airport with an X in it messing up FSFS?
