Perhaps next time I can better stick it to myself because this grows out of proportion and I don't want to hurt the 777 guys with all these sometime,s overreacted negative responses .
i am sure that they going to work it out but fore now please close this section .
I am fairly new to the sim, having it about 3 weeks now, and so far have not experienced this bug - only playing single player so far.
But obviously several are having it, and sounds like more since the last update. Seems to me your effort has certainly helped many, to at least maybe reduce the frequency of this bug, and make the sim more playable for them. And hopefully, gives the developers maybe a little more information as to help point towards the root cause.
I certainly have not seen, where deleting this file and letting it rebuild, has caused the problem to worsen for anyone.
I would say very well done, and I am sure there are many that are very appreciative of the info you have shared!
