flight plans not loading into FSX
« on: August 12, 2018, 07:40:31 PM »
OK what am I doing wrong, I load the flight plans so the cigar box can see them, no problems, but in trying to load them into the FSX flight plan folder, when I try access them they wont pull up, so I've been just flying SOP, more or less from departure to destination. Is there something in a config file that needs to be changed to accept them?? OK I notice others are having the same problem I'm having, I also am using FSX Acceleration with Win 7

Weird Jim.. might be a Windows 10 vs win 7 Thingy.. might be winrar version. Try unzipiing and put in plan g then export them on your PC then try them in your sim to see if they will load. Most don't have this prob.

I'm in the process of doing that, haven't used Plan G in quite some time so it's another relearning process. also I will be away from the flight sim from the 16 until sometime in SEP, don't know if that's a problem with the cigar box program

No problem Jim.. in the mean time you can try any planner your familiar..

When I get home will try to recompress the files .. like I honestly don't know why they load for most but don't for a few fsx users but will work on it.

OK Nrm here is what I've done, I put the fight plan into Plan G and then click  on save as and what I've put into the flight plan name I put mfc00027.pln and then export to the FSX light plans with all the other and it seemed to work correctly. Maybe you have an idea why it works, because I haven't got a clue
