Broken old Scripts, like Ex_MarsPatchConic or others I did

Postby hornig » Fri Jan 31, 2014 2:23 pm

Hi there,

do others also have the problem, that old scripts, you did with gmat 2012, are not working with gmat 2013?
This happens to my old ones I did from skretch, but also for tutorialsand examples, like Ex_MarsPatchConic.

I already re-installed gmat because I thought something went wrong with the first installation, but it is still there even with the fresh version. It only happens to some of the samples.

Did you change something or is it me? :)

Win7
gmat-winInstaller-i586-R2013a.exe

Best regards,

Andreas

Hi Andreas,

Yes, we changed quite a bit in R2013a. This was our first non-beta release, so we allowed certain things to break in the process.

If you're stuck on how to fix them, post your script and maybe we can help.

Hi,

okay, I will do. But the most anoying thing is that also 30% of the samples, that you deliver with the programme, don't work. If I would be a totally new user I wouldn't know if they were broken, or if I would have done something wrong.
It would be cool if you would fix/update them also so that people can work with it. You sometimes refer to them in forum posts, so they should work if needed! ;)

thanks,

Andreas

Yep, I totally agree. This was an unfortunate mistake we made when we packaged up R2013a.

If you want the latest ones, you can always grab them from here: http://sourceforge.net/p/gmat/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/application/samples/. The new ones will of course be included in our next release (probably R2014a).
