RC does not load any flight plan anymore

Recommended Posts

Hi

since the last scenery rebuilt RC does not load any flt plan anymore.

When I click "load Flt plan" in the upper left corner, the flt plan window shows only  "to @0 (Alt1- , Alt2-) /  *RVSM" and if I  clicking "Start RC" I get

a FSUIPC warning "cannot link to FSUIPC or WideClient.

New FSUIPC installation did not help.

Any help very welcome

Peter, the action of rebuilding the scenery database will not cause that problem. Something else must have changed.

Check you still have permissions to the folder containing your plans. You also need write access to the main P3D folder.

Is RC4 installed on the same PC as P3D or via WideFS?

Ray, tks for your quick response.

Checked the folder, all unchanged. I re-installed RC over the existing one, no luck. Same fault as before.

I'm not the pc guru, but for me it looks that the failure is somewhere else, not inside RC.

The last couple of days I installed ORBX Global, and 3 LC, plus 2 freeware airports 2 days later.

After the ORBX installation I did a couple of flights, all normal. 

And yesterday I re-installed Eaglesoft Citx. Later on the problem start. I cannot think that the Citx demaged my RC,

but I will uninstall that and let you know.

All FSX, no more P3Dv3

Peter,

No need to uninstall aircraft or reinstall RC4. The problem is elsewhere.

Check you're running the latest versions of FSUIPC4 and MakeRunways. Then run MakeRunways (essential after adding new scenery) and try again.

Ray, sorry for coming late.

So, as you suggested, new FSUIPC as well as new MakeRunways. Executed MakeRunways, created a new fltpln,

started RC: nothing, same fault as before. (here you can see a pic of it https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/430017-simbrief-fsxpln-files-and-rc4/.

After Makerunways I checked the "Data" folder within RC4 and there are no *5.xxx files in there. Only  *4.csv.

Acc to the readme file inside Makerunways there should be some others. Maybe that's  the prob.

Peter.

What am I meant to be looking at in the link you provided?

Are you running RC4 on the same computer as FSX.

Ray,  yes FSX and RC4,  no more P3Dv3

The link was only for the pic, to show you how it looks when I try to load a plan into RC. Maybe that makes it more clear to you.

Peter, I’m not asking about P3D. I’m asking if you run RC4 on the same computer as FSX?

What picture am I meant to be looking at?

What program do you use to generate your flight plans?

I’ll post details of the files that are updated by Make Runways tomorrow.

Ray,

Forget about the pic

Normally FSC10, for longer flights Simbrief and sometimes OFP (Online Flight Planner)

Peter, okay so everything is running on one PC. Good. That keeps things simple.

Look in your RC4\data folder. After a database rebuild you should have a new a4.csv, c4.csv and r4.csv.

When you load a plan in RC4 the c4.csv should have a new date modified time. In the window to the left of Start RC you should see your plan with both airport ICAOs and waypoints. If you don't then there's something wrong with the formatting of the plan. I don't have FSX to be able to check what is the correct formatting. But the manual will advise as it was written for FSX.

After selecting Start RC you should see a SimConnect window with the first two waypoints followed by options for Clearance and Wx Brief.

That's assuming you're flying IFR.

Hi Ray,

rebuilding Database: a4.csv as well as r4.csv getting new timestamp.  c4.csv unchanged!!

When loading fltplan into RC4, (.plan) I get only the to @0 (Alt1- , Alt2-)/ *RVSM . 

No Plan is loaded. I tried xxx-xxx as well as xxxxxx, Also changed the path to the fltplan to be loaded and tried plans

made from FSC10, OFP and Simbrief. All same result.  Pushing now, even he did not find/load a plan, the PB

"Start RC" then again that external warning "Cannot link to FSUIPC or WideClient

Ray,

I do not know what that problem now is.I copy and paste the link from my mail inbox.

If I click on the link within my mailbox, then it is working.

Do you have anything where i can sent the mail?

Ray,

first of all thank you very very much for your help. The solution you gave me is a little bit hard to undersstand for me.

But I will try.

One more question: the pic, which you attached, is that a screenshot of your "rcv4x\Data" folder??  If so, I do not

have them all. I have only *4.** files. Can that be the problem? Because those 3 fltplan are from 3 diff sources,

like FSC10, OFP and Simbrief which I use since years without prob.

Hello Peter,

Can you list the four files you have please. Maybe something important is missing.

Let’s make sure you have all the files you need first before we go any further.

Hi Ray,

you are my HERO. You found the prob and, inportant, you give me also the solution. A very very big thank you for that.

Flt plan without changing anything is only Simbrief. FSC10 shows Win crlf but only utf8 and can be converted to utf8bom,

So OnlineFlightPlanner,  I was unable to convert. But no prob at all,leave them away.

Here my files in "rcv4x\Data"  a4, c4, f4, m4, n4, p4, r4, s4, z4. All cvs.

Once more thank you very much, RC4 is back

Hi Peter,

That's good to hear. The encoding of the plan is extremely important. Get it wrong and it causes lots of problems with RC4. Some planners like PFPX do the conversion correctly but I have no experience of FSC10 or Simbrief.

If RC4 is operating properly then those files will be fine. Just remember the golden rule. Every time you add or remove airports you must run the database update and makerunways.

Happy flying! 😀
