[Solved] Create seperate loc file according to wiki not correct

Post by agre30 » 31.05.2019, 11:05

I want to create a separate locfile based on the demo file. According to the wiki I can fill in the name of the locfile (loc.xml) in Rocrail Properties and the locfile should be created the first time the plan is saved.
However, the locfile is only created after restarting Rocrail en pressing the save button.

Both German and English wiki show this explanation.
Is the description in the wiki not right?

Hi Albert,

Onder het beeld heb je de volgende opmerking.
A restart of the server is required in order the changes to take effect!
Zo alles is goed.

Hi Tom,
Thanks for your reply. So I took the right steps, but it my opinion the wiki could be more clear at this point. I think it should state:

English:
If a file name is entered here later, Rocrail shifts in case the next storing the related data from the track plan file into this locomotive file after the restart.

Nederlands:
Als er later naderhand een bestandsnaam wordt gegeven zal Rocrail de gerelateerde gegevens hiernaar verplaatsen bij de eerst volgende opslaan opdracht na de herstart.

Do you agree?
My goal is to make Rocrail more accessible to first time users.

Albert.

Ja en Nee!
Wiki zegt al vooraan dat je altijd een restart moet doen. Jij wilt nu dat bij elke optie het woord "restart" moet staan.
Vind ik niet, maar ...
Added in English, because I was initially rambling in Dutch :oops:
The language police is active! :mrgreen:

Yes and No!
Wiki states as the first thing always do a restart, now you are advocating that the word "restart" is added to each option.
I don't think so, but...

Hi Tom,
You're right. The issue is not about the restart, the issue is the user should press 'Save' once after the restart to create the new file.

So, a better explanation in the wiki could be:
English:
If a file name is entered here later, the button 'Save plan' should be pressed once after the restart to create the file.

Nederlands:
Als de bestandsnaam later ingevuld wordt moet, na de herstart, op de knop 'Baanplan opslaan' geklikt worden om het bestand te maken.

Deutch (google translate)
Wenn der Dateiname später eingegeben wird, muss nach dem Neustart auf die Taste 'Plan speichern' geklickt werden, um die Datei zu erstellen.

I hope you can agree on this.

Albert.

Hi Albert,
to me your wording is not clear enough.
a) Old wiki contents:
"If a file name is entered here later, Rocrail shifts in case the next storing the related data from the track plan file into this locomotive file."
My suggestion:
"If a file name is entered, Rocrail has to be restarted. After that with "File / Save" the plan file is saved and the locomotive definitions are moved to the newly defined locomotive file."

b) Old Wiki contents:
"With the button [ . . . ] a file chooser dialog is started."
My suggestion:
"The button [ . . . ] may be used to choose the locomotive definitions from an already existing file."

What do you thing about?
Regards
Hermann

Hermann,

I think your text could be put in the wiki without any further discussion. I agree :thumb_up:

What are the rules about changing the wiki? Can anybody with access to the wiki change the text when there is an agreement here on the forum?

Hi Claus,

Thanks, I had noticed it! One of the things, I do most days is to check Wiki changes.
Rainer almost always translates my low German into high German. :mrgreen:
That is why I leave him the honors!
