Go into the Aircrafts folder in the application folder. Find a file with .air suffix and make a copy of it. Rename this copy with the name of the desired aircraft and let thtte suffix as .air.
Finally, open the file in a simple text editor and edit the values on each line. These values determine the aircraft properties this way:
Weight = mass in tones
Maxspeed = maximum travelling speed in kilometers
Maxrange = maximum flight range in kilometers
Maxheight = maximum flight height in meters
Takeoffspeed = takeoff speed in kilometers
Landingspeed = landing speed in kilometers
Maxpassengers = maximum number of passengers
Category = category 1, 2 or 3.
Then save this file as a common text.
If you own the exact sound of the real aircraft engine, and you want this sound to be used for one of your aircrafts, enter the folder Aircraft which you can find in the main application folder. Insert your sound file here and rename it the way to be named exactly like the air-file of the corresponding aircraft. The sound record has to be in the .wav format and has to have this suffix as well. If you want your sound to be used for all the aircrafts of the chosen category, name this sound with the number of this category, i. e. 1.wav, 2.wav or 3.wav.
Though, there are other sound files for the whole categories in the Aircrafts folder, the preferred sound is the one for the exact plane, if it is available. If the sound for an exact plane is not found, the sound for the whole category will be used.
In the Start Menu within Windows go to Eurofly and activate Dispatchers item. A folder will open, within which you can find subfolders with names of dispatchers. There create a new folder with your name. In front of your name put the lingual prefix as it is in case of other folders. Create sound records according to files in each of other folders. Name and order them the way it is in other folders. If you want your dispatcher to be available also for other Eurofly users, contact the application author and ask to make your dispatcher public in the Eurofly Download Center.
In the Start Menu within Windows go to Eurofly and activate Stewards item. A folder will open, within which you can find subfolders with names of stewards. There create a new folder with your name. In front of your name put the lingual prefix as it is in case of other folders. Create sound records according to files in each of other existing folders. Name and order them the way it is in other folders. If you want your steward to be available also for other Eurofly users, contact the application author and ask to make your steward public in the Eurofly Download Center.
In the Start Menu of Windows in Eurofly activate an item called Music Library. A folder will be opened, which contains music files and one configuration file called states.dat. Into this folder insert your track which you want to add as background music on the map. Name the file to start with another following order number after the last file. Then you can use any name of this file. Finally, open the file states.dat in the text editor and check, which mark is written in the very last line. It will probably be a star. This mark is called delimiter. Now go to the end of the file, make a new line following the last one and into the empty line write this delimiter. Following the delimiter write the number which you’ve used to name your sound file. Into the following lines write the numbers of the countries, at which you want this track to sound. These lines don’t have to contain only abstract numbers, so following the number of the country you can write the dash mark and any explaining text, e. g. the name of the country (98-Phillipines). As all the countries from the map are already ordered somewhere within this file, the simplest way will be to find the countries you want to correspond with your music, within this file. Select each of these countries (together with its number), cut it from its original place and paste it into the line under your track number. Finally save the file.
In the mode of Walking through map find the place on the map, which you want to tinge with your own music. Press Ctrl+number 3 – 7 to select an object to be corresponding with your music. For example if you want to change music for the whole region of Bratislava, which corresponds with number 4, press Ctrl+4. Then press Alt+M. A dialog window will appear, where you just choose the name of the track which is to be played at Bratislava region. The music files have to be placed in the folder of Eurofly, subfolder Audio/Countryes2.
You cannot add a new airport into the list on your own. But if you want to have an airport which is not within the application, search for it in the map in the manual examining mode (Walking through map) and press Alt+1, Alt+2 or Alt+3, according to the airport category of your desired airport. A new e-mail message will be opened, which will already contain coordinates and category of the new airport. Write just the name of the new airport in the message and send it. Name the airport by the city where it is situated, not by its official name. Be aware that for other users within the whole world it will be better to see the name of the city instead of the official name of the airport in the airport list.
Enter the Profiles folder in the main application folder. Rename the file with your profile but let the suffix as it is.
Many cities on the map are named in the country language. If you want to have certain areas named in your language, enter the folder Data in the main application folder and according to current map open the corresponding definition file *.def. Find the name of the country, sea or city you want to change. Change it and save the changes.
You can control Eurofly without any screen reader. In that case you get all the information by means of SAPI 5 interface. However, you can also set JAWS, Winmonitor or NVDA in the Eurofly Main Menu. Then you will get information through the selected reader. You can even combine two different voice outputs. Basic information will go through the primary voice and through the second one (modal) you will get info from the map, where you’ve just came to. To set the primary voice, enter the Main Menu > Voice Settings and select your desired voice. To set the modal voice, open the file Eurofly.ini and find a line “Modalvoice”. Behind “=” write one of these strings: „Jaws“, „Winmonitor“, „NVDA“, of course without quotation marks. You can also put the voice name of SAPI 5 (e. g. Zira, Mike etc.), but you have to write the exact name of the voice, the way you see it in the system control panel.
Enter the Settings menu and on the Map tab find an item called “Add minus sign before negative numbers”. If you tick this item, the voice output will pronounce the word “minus” before negative numbers.
Enter the folder with your user data and find a file named Blackbox.txt. It is the black box of your aircraft. Open this file and you will get to know about your flight parameters and a probable cause of your crash.
Enter the folder with your user data and open the file called Tasklog. There you can see why your task wasn’t fulfilled.
The whole folder of Eurofly, which you will get after the installation, you can take on your portable medium. The only thing you have to do is to set Eurofly to write its files into its own folder and not to depend on other files in your computer. You’ll do it if you open the file Eurofly.ini and find a line Path. Erase the value behind the word Path and save changes.
