Using RCD files using P3D?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I just came upon a situation that I don't know if there's a way around.

 

I use P3D. I did the necessary things to make RC4 work with it, however there's one problem--RC4 looks for a flightplan name.flt file when attempting to load an RCD file.

 

Is it a case of simply renaming the FXML that P3D creates to FLT and I should be good? The WX file is there...

 

Thanks.

You would only load an RCD file if you saved a flight when enroute or the PC crashed.

Is thatbwhat your’re trying to achieve?

Look in your main P3D folder. Are there any RCD files there?

Do you have a registered version of FSUIPC which includes a save flight option every x minutes? From memory it may also include Radar Contact RCD files but it's been a long time since I used that facility and under FSX, not P3D.

Thank you @agutz. It should be noted that RC is now 12 years old and the xml file type did not exist back then. Hence the need for conversion.
