Operator Codes and Flags

Post by reddy » Sat Dec 01, 2018 12:44 am

A quick (probably dumb) question please.
I have looked through the forum and the VRS documentation regarding flags.
Is the mechanism for displaying the correct flag as simple as:
- matching the Operator Code which is displayed in the top right part of the VRS browser standard screen (usually 3 letters - eg QFA for QANTAS)
with
the flag filename (QFA.bmp) in the flags directory (specified in the Tools/Options - data sources).
with
the .bmp file a 85 X 20 pixel bmp file.
Have I missed anything with regard to databases file, web lookups etc.

Thanks in advance.
Rob

Sorry for the delay in replying. Yes, that's basically the long and short of it. It will also look for files with the aircraft's ICAO and registration as its name so you can specify per-aircraft overrides if required.

The lookup will use the registration and operator flag lookup from your BaseStation.sqb (if you have one) or from the online lookup if available.
