[1.5.1, 1.6.1, 1.7.2] Flight Manager for Reusable Stages (FMRS), now with RecoveryController integration

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

So something weird happened with FMRS and i wanted to see if it is normal, keep in mind i run the game with 77 mods though.

FMRS does not seem to work(not saving separation) with clustered fuel tanks but does work with 1 or more stacked fuel tanks and clustered engines, that applies with using adapters or not.

Is it how it is supposed to work? Does this apply to other people or it's just my game?

I don't understand, can you post a picture or video to explain?

You mean a way to say that "this stage is for FMRS, and that stage is for SR"?

Exactly but without the need for a bulky probe core

Just so you know, right now the two can co-exist.  There is an option in FMRS to specify that a stage with parachutes-only should be controlled by SR

That being said, watch this space for an announcement soon

Where are the decouplers?  

Could you post craft files for me to use to test, please

Looks like they're where the probe core is placed in the actual launches (so presumably on top of the probe core). Could it be because the stage is still firing? The one that didn't save is still shooting off somewhere and the stages that did save have the engine(s) deactivated. Just a guess based on the images.

You will probably need to install a lot of mods for those crafts to work, but if you still want me do it just tell me. Also, yes, the decouplers are just above the probe core, check the last 3 images zoomed in. If more than one fuel tanks are present and not vertically stacked in a stage , then FMRS will not work.

Edit: Also tell me if a mod list will be helpfull, or a log ( which i don't know how to get yet ^^)

Edit 2: The stage continuous to fire because FMRS didn't detect the seperation to cut the engines off

Could be, but the firing shouldn't affect it.

I want the craft files so I don't have to recreate a problem before troubleshooting it

That is fine.

Log file will be in KSP/KSP_x64_Data/output_log.txt and would be useful

Thanks

Ummm, what os, and are you 32 or 64 bit?  If 32 bit, then the directory is:KSP/KSP_Data/output_log.txt

however, I probably don't need it for this, just good to know in case you need help for something else

Windows 10 64 bit and i run 64 bit Ksp. KSP_x64 data folder is there but no log inside. There is just a KSP.log on the main folder is that the one?

No, it would be called output_log.txt, the KSP.log is not complete.

There is another place logs sometimes end up, I'll have to dig it out and get back to you.  In the meantime, the craft files are enough

Got it! I'll patiently wait on your progress on this! FMRS is one of the best mods out there. Thanks a bunch for your work!

Well, you got me at a good time, I'm working on FMRS right now

Oh, i assume the ship numbers (1,2,3) correspond to the pictures?

Is the problem that it doesn't cut off the engines?  Or is the first stage just totally ignored (on #1)?

It seems i made a mistake and forgot to mention i also have installed outter planets mod and KEI. Also, rarely, with that 4 fuel tank 16 engine lower stage FMRS detects separation and cuts off engines but doesn't save.

Well, I have not been able to get it to fail, see the following videos, I did a total of about 10 launches while I attempted to land the 1st stage:

Then it has to do with the plethora of mods i have, one or more of them makes FMRS not working with fuel tank clusters.

So, just to elaborate on my earlier post, I installed the minimum number of mods needed to load your ships (specifically, #1).  So now I'll need the output_log.

 

Ok, i found the post:

Specifically, I highlighted in red what you need to find:

Quote

The Logs
These are text files that the game spits out for debugging purposes as it runs; if something broke horribly in-game, there will be something in here about it. You should upload the entire log as a file (i.e. not to pastebin); you can use dropbox or an equivalent host to upload the file. Make sure the entire file gets uploaded; you may have to zip it first, as logs can be very long. Here is where you can find the log:

  • Windows: KSP_win\KSP_Data\output_log.txt (32bit) or KSP_win64\KSP_x64_Data\output_log.txt (64bit) or %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Squad\Kerbal Space Program\output_log.txt
  • Mac OS X: Open Console, on the left side of the window there is a menu that says 'files'. Scroll down the list and find the Unity drop down, under Unity there will be Player.log ( Files>~/Library/Logs>Unity>Player.log )
  • Linux: ~/.config/unity3d/Squad/Kerbal\ Space\ Program/Player.log

There you go the log ends after separating stage and pausing the game

Ummm, it's not complete.  I'm assuming you didn't set the option to flush the logs immediately, so you are going to have to do it again.  This time, after pausing, exit the game.

 

But, before you do, please download and install this version of FMRS:

https://github.com/linuxgurugamer/FMRS/releases/download/1.2.3.1/FMRS-1.2.3.1-Debug-Beta.zip

It puts more data into the log file

launched,separated, paused, quit main menu, quit. that's what i did.Also deleted old FMRS folder and isntalled the debug version.Flush to disk is on.

i noticed on console this repeating a LOT of times: 

FMRS: entering flight_scene_update_routine()
 
(Filename: C:/buildslave/unity/build/artifacts/generated/common/runtime/UnityEngineDebugBindings.gen.cpp Line: 42)

FMRS: leaving flight_scene_update_routine
 
(Filename: C:/buildslave/unity/build/artifacts/generated/common/runtime/UnityEngineDebugBindings.gen.cpp Line: 42)

new log on drive: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwFqVCK5mGRRRDVzSE8wbHpBeVk
