    hello,
    i have tried to add to my stellarium 11.0 the great comets list from this
    link:
    http://www.stellarium.org/wiki/index.php/Solar_System_Objects
    when i switched the ssystem.ini file, nothing happened.
    stellarium still works properly, but there aren't any new objects.
    can somebody help me?

    Hi
    Two things to check on
    1. is the object you seek in the new ssysytem.ini ( a text editor can be used to check)
    2. Where did you place the new ssystem.ini. Stellarium looks first in the data folder of your user area and then in the data folder of your stellarium installation. If you already have a ssystem.ini file in the user area this is the place to put the
    new one.

    1. the new objects are in the downloaded ssystem.ini file
    2. i placed this file at c:/program files/stellarium/data.

    thanks for good will, but it didn't help. any other suggestions?

    Did you check in documents and settings\application data\stellarium\data
    note: application data is a hidden file. you will need to make it visible.
    You probably have another copy of ssystem.ini there and this is being read.
    If you can't find the file, delete the copy in c:\program
    files\stellarium\data and see if stellarium still loads. If it does this will
    confirm that there is another copy somewhere.

    i have replaced the ssystem.ini file in C:\Documents and Settings\Application
    Data\Stellarium\data, and stellarium crashes several seconds after the
    startup. when I deleted the new file and placed there the original file,
    stellarium started to work properly again.

    An update: I tried to use the ssystem.ini file "selected asteroids" instead of
    the "hendrik's comets list", and it has worked well. Perhaps the comets file
    has bugs.

    ok, final update: I tried to delete the file in program files... and
    stellarium crashed, but i found another solution:
    the files in program files and application data must be the same file.
    Otherwise, the new objects does not appear. Thanks for helping!!!

    but it still doesn't work with the great comets list. I really don't
    understand it.

    The ssystem.ini file is very critical to syntax. There is most likely a small
    error, like a missing comma or similar. This will cause Stellarium to crash on
    load.
