    Max characters in registration

    Hi,

    Thanks for the continued development of this wonderful tool, can't imagine my sim without it.

    I recently noticed that certain registrations don't seem to get matched by reg code and all of them feature a lot of characters in the reg. This mainly applies to some central-American airlines, i.e. Copa. An example would be HP-1719CMP. For that airline they are all in the same format and this is what FR24 uses as well. Doing a quick check in PTY, their base, none of their flights get matched by reg code even though they are all entered correctly in the atc_id field.

    Is there a limit on how many characters can be in a reg? If so, is there a way to extend it to include those longer regs?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    PSXseeconTraffic has no limit on the length of the registration string.
    Have you checked that RealTraffic passes these long registrations? Look into the 7 nearby window of RT.

    Thanks Kiek. Live Traffic indeed had an 8-character limit. Balt has already applied a fix to increase this to allow for those longer regs.
