Arrow Outer Planets Patch
by OrbitHangar 05-23-2009, 10:00 AM

This is NOT my work. I have just uploaded it to OH so that it can still be downloaded after the hack of AVSIM. A few minor fixes to bugs that turned up over the first few days of general use. A special Delta Glider III Sol.cfg is also included for use with this addon. A few moons are removed that conflict with this Orbiter favorite by Dan Steph. As well, the two modules in debug mode are now replaced with their release versions. Install: Simply drag and drop the folders to your root Orbiter directory. Overwrite. The Delta Glider III Sol.cfg is located in its own folder inside the Config folder. To use, copy and paste it to the main Config folder, overwriting the Sol.cfg already there. Original Authors: VF2_Rolf (Rolf Keibel) Carl Romanik and Tony Dunn, With additional help from Brian Jones, Nighthawke, Peter3210.

I noticed the patch available at OH does not include the patched dll files which came with the original. From the readme contained in the archive:

The two modules mentioned here should be those for Epimetheus and Janus, which both should reside in the Modules directory of the archive. Without those updated files, those two bodies are using debug versions of their modules.

Does anyone happen to have the non-debug versions?

Sorry I missed this...

Try these configs...these two moons have never behaved correctly due to limitations in Orbiter. Every dozen years (or so...about that...lol) the two catch up to each other and swap orbits. The modules were an attempt to mimic this. These are from a previous version of The Outer Planets. Just copy and past over the "dll" cfg file entries.
