Fatal error when creating an IFR flight plan V2.2

Recommended Posts

After tweaking and understanding Prepar 3D 2.2 Im enjoying it.

Only issue is trying to create an IFR flight plan, after I created it and I press OK or Save.

Prepar 3D crashes.

 

Hope you can help because I dont want to re install since finally have it working nicely

I just did a test, and YES, P3dv2.2 now crashes on saving an IFR (High Alt) flight plan (maybe others, too). It does, however, read existing files. Disappointing.  Luckily, I use FS Commander to create my FPs.

motoadve,

My 2.2 install went great (patch) and last evening, for the first time, I went to flight planner - put in a flight, then clicked SAVE - it set for about ten seconds, and CRASHED to desktop.

 

I restarted and got the same results - Have tried it several times and same results...........

 

Config is plain vanilla!

 

I know LM had this problem when v2.0 first came out -

 

Let's hope a reinstall will help.....Wes Bard say's to remove the 4 files (shown on the P3d Site) - restart pc, and reapply patch.  I'm going to try this today and hopefully it will "fix it"...

IF not, then I'm in deep crap.

 

Good luck,

 

Tom

The flight planner is "broken" at the moment. Wes Bard and company are aware of it and have it as one of their priority items for v2.3 which is currently under development.

n4gix,

THANK YOU for the "heads-up" - I did a "re-patch" to no avail.........was afraid I was going to have to go from scratch....

GOOD to know..........lived with that problem with 2.0 initially until they had a fix.....

To anyone with ASN: I found that I can create and save a fight plan in Active Sky Next and it will load ok in P3Dv.2.2

Just dont patch to 2.2 it seems. I patched to it tonight.  And bang no more flight plans.  How nice.

I hope they fix it soon... perhaps they should hire someone to test their patches before they release them?

Interestingly, I used the p3d2.2 Flight Planner to modify a FP created by FS Commander so that the aircraft would be parked at a gate, and then saved it. P3d2.2 did not crash! It only seems to crash after you actually create a route.

The ghost from 2.0 is back... P3D Team said they are working on a hotfix for the flight planner. I never fly without one, so I'm just fooling around in v2.2 at the moment.

Creating in PlanG and exporting works also.

I recently purchased version 2.1....weeks before the 2.2 upgrade. I decided to uninstall 2.1 and download the full version of 2.2. Everything went smooth, however, just like those of you who installed the patch, saving a flight plan or creating a flight log will produce the "Fatal Error" message. I use Opus for weather and have not learned enough about it yet to know if it will create a flight plan that P3D will recognize and use in place of the default flight planning interface.

May be I am missing some thing. Is this conversation is regarding  regular FSX Flight plan to intercept P3D v2.2? If yes, I have no problem with  Flight Plan and it is working perfect with P3D v 2.2

Yes, you are missing something. The built-in flightplanner of Prepar3D v2.2 was 'broken.' When anyone tried to create or save a flightplan, P3D v2.2 would CTD.

asanal,

You were lucky then.  An awful lot of us had the CTD when we tried to save a flight plan.  I applied the patch and "all is well".

Here are screenshots for my way how I am filling  P3D 2,2 flight plan. May be , it  will help some  members.

 

 

1- I use FsBuild for FP planning ( you can use any others)

2-Open P3D v2,2 select "Vehicles " you want to fly. My selection was MJS8q400CJC (Continental)

 

 

3- Cockpit View ,Left Top Corner Open "Flights" and Click  "Flight Planners"

 

4- Flight Planner screen click on LOAD

5-it will take you "Load Flight Plan screen" Disregard "C:\ Sanal\Prepar3Dv2 Files" Just click BROWSE"

6-It will take youto " Browse for Folder" screen

Find "Flight Simulator X Files and click on folder

7-It will take you P3Dv2 Flight Plan and find  KALB-KCLE

Your  P3D 2.2 Flight Plan is ready

Thank you for sharing your technique and results.

 

However, you are still missing the point entirely. Before the latest "hot fix" no one was able to create and save a flight plan using only the built-in flight planner functions.

 

Opening and importing a flight plan from an external source was never a problem, and has nothing to do with the issue being discussed in this thread... :Thinking:
