This article will guide you through the download, installation and setup of OpenRadar.
At first the most important: We publish early to give you influence on the final application.
Installation of OpenRadar
- Download the zip file from here (Change Log)
- Extract the content to a place where it is easy to find
- If your former version had a 'settings' folder, please copy the 'xml' and 'properties' files into the new extracted settings folder (all but the defaults.properties: user.properties contains your inputs in settings dialogue, atcComments.xml contains the text on the flight strips, the airport property files your centerline/radio frequency settings of the airport, the content of sub folder ATCmsg contains the templates for the automatic ATC messages, copy it only, if you have adapted it!)
- You need a recent Java installed (at least Java Runtime Environment 1.7)
Please read our Guide ! It shows all the features in detail!
I try to collect known issues tips and tricks on this page and here. Please check if I have provided a new version of the binary release in meantime. Maybe your issue is gone.
Last but not least: Please be positive and give constructive feedback. Which features are useful, which should be changed, what is really missing. Target should be to have a reliable, handy tool, not an potentially really useful, but overloaded and buggy everlasting prototype.
