Active Runway Updater for AIFlow/AIGround
Welcome to the Active Runway Updater, a tool designed to streamline the management of operational runways for AI Traffic within AIFlow and AIGround configurations. This application simplifies the process of updating the aiflow.ini and aiground.ini files by providing an intuitive user interface and automating the update process. The application updates 'AIForceLandingRunway=' entries on the AIFlow.ini file and 'AIForceTaxiOutRunway=' entries in the AIGround.ini files.
User Interface: The application provides a simple user interface. Users can input the ICAO airport code and operational runways through text fields and submit the changes.
File Modification: Upon submission of the user's input, the application ensures the correct formatting and updates the respective configuration files (aiflow.ini and aiground.ini) with the provided ICAO code and operational runways. It intelligently handles existing instances, prevents duplicates, and groups the configurations together within the files.
Feedback: After successfully updating the configuration files, the application provides feedback through a message box confirming the completion of the update process.
Overall, this application simplifies the process of editing the aiflow.ini and aiground.ini files by providing a user-friendly interface and automating the update process.
Yes you can open the files yourself and edit them yourself but who wants to do that?
Installation and usage -
**Prerequisite - must be used in conjunction with AIFlow and/or AIGround by ClipperOS.
