WPT Load Error? Only In the 747? Why NOT 777?

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I have been flying with the PMDG 747 and the 777 for a while. I have been getting this error which says "WPT load error" when I use the .PLN to .rt2 converter. So I switched on to PFPX and I load the co route as saved and I again get the error. These errors do not happen on the 777. So I made an account in Simbrief and I did not find save as .rt2 option. So I entered the route manually and it took me a lot of time and kinda makes me "mentally" tired double checking each and every waypoint. The airacs are the same for the PMDG 777, PMDG 747 and PFPX.

 

Is there a software to convert .RTE to .RT2? I found a similar topic but that does not happen to me.

The 777 uses a different route format, from what I recall. I believe it uses RTE and not RTE2.

Well I am aware that the 777 uses rte and not rt2 but even though they have a different pattern of storing flight plans, I am not getting that error in the 777 but only in the 747.

Sorry for not specifying before

Right - the 737 and 777 use a different format than the 747. If you're receiving errors from a route exporter, then you'll need to take it up with the designer of that software/tool, or be sure you're using the correct format for the 747.

Really quite simple in PFPX simply select the RT2 export option ( placed in PMDG\FLIGHTPLANS ) and the 777 ( placed in PMDG\FLIGHTPLANS\777 ). Assuming your PFPX paths are setup correctly then there shouldn't be an issue as each aircraft will find the correct format.

 

As Kyle has suggested if the format is not working then raise the issue on the PFPX forum.

Well yes I am using the correct format for the 747. What I again tested was, if I enter co route, it gives me "rnw load error" and waypoint load errors. But if I enter them manually, I get 0 errors. All good to go. But I find this time consuming.

I find I can load RTE format flight plans into the 747 FMC with no errors. The only issue is that the FMC RTE page doesn't display correctly after loading the route. If you check the LEGS page all the waypoints appear correctly and the FMC will follow the route. If you edit the route (adding SID and STAR for example) the RTE page will show these additions.

 

Interestingly, when you save a route in the 747 it saves the file in RTE format.
