How VRS displays aircraft icons

I am trying to edit ProHill's flight database setup (https://github.com/ProHill/VRS-flights-db) to allow for the map page to display aircraft icons (in the exact same way VRS does) instead of the standard google map api arrows in the tracked log map. If you are unfamiliar with the setup, I am basica...

Re: Reconnect to receivers automatically

I found and fixed a bug that stopped idle timeouts from working properly under Mono, the version that's currently in preview should now work. Let me know if it doesn't. Thanks - I've done a bit of testing and so far so good! Is there a way to turn the idle timeouts off for a receiver as I've notice...

Re: Icons in preview version

You're missing an open quote on this line: normalFileName: test.png', It should be: normalFileName: 'test.png', The browser console window would have been showing an error on that line when the site loaded, if you press F12 you should see it there. I've got this fixed now. It wasn't actually a prob...

Re: Icons in preview version

I've been trying to get custom aircraft icons to work however, I'm not sure that I'm putting the PNGs in the correct place. I am using the latest preview version of VRS with the custom content plugin enabled. I have set the site root directory to the Web directory with the images directory, then mar...

Re: SVG labels don't show all text

They already are on Windows, I'm guessing we're talking about a Mono installation here? Yes - I didn't know that it looks differently on windows. I seem to remember that I did try to have the marker label centered under the marker's anchor point, as per the Windows markers, but it was tricky... fro...

Re: SVG labels don't show all text

Is there a way to make aircraft icons use SVGs but the label underneath use the old way of showing labels? If not I'll have to disable SVGs altogether. Either way, could the old non SVG text label underneath aircrafts be styled to be centered underneath the aircraft icon, like the SVG ones are now? ...

Custom receiver specific timeouts

It would be nice to be able to set the timeout length manually for different receivers. I have recently been experimenting with adding AIS into VRS but I have a problem where I need longer timeouts but don't want to interfere with the timeouts on my ADS-B receiver. I am currently using the JAERO opt...

Re: Basestation data getting removed/overwritten

If you go to the database writer options as shown here: http://www.virtualradarserver.co.uk/documentation/DatabaseWriter/Default.aspx and remove the tick from "Overwrite details on existing aircraft" then it won't overwrite your edits every 28 days. Thanks - must have missed that option

SVG labels don't show all text

I am running the preview version of VRS and I am using the SVG graphics. I have the aircraft label line settings to show the callsign, receiver and flight level of the aircraft. Some of the receiver text is cut off the labels as shown in the picture below. This also happens with aircrafts with long ...
