SimBrief Import Causing Crash

After the recent SimBrief update there are certain instances whereby importing a generated flightplan into Self-Loading Cargo causes the application to crash.

This is due to a change in the XML file that SimBrief generates (which Self-Loading Cargo processes) when a scheduled flight time is exactly an hour (or multiple of hours) long - for example, "1hr 00 mins", "2hr 00 mins" etc.

The new update causes the field "stemin" in the XML to be blank instead of supplying the "0" minutes - Self-Loading Cargo cannot process the missing value and so exits.

How to Fix

Ensure that the "Scheduled Block Time" is not exactly 1, 2, or X hours - change the value of the minutes field to non-zero (i.e. add a minute to your scheduled flight).

Simbrief Fix

Patch

A fix for this issue has been added to the forthcoming update so that this no longer occurs.
