Loading a saved rcd file

Recommended Posts

HiFirstly, thanks for such a fabulous program - I've been using it for only a couple of weeks, and it far exceeds my expectations.However, I'm having some difficulty loading a saved .rcd file. I open FSX, load the saved flight, then open RC, click on the Load saved button and select the required rcd file. The green loading line begins,goes to the first green dot then nothing happens for a long time. I've tried closing RC and retrying the load, but with the same result. But here's the strange thing: Eventually I get a screen message "Cannot load XXXXX.rcd". I click OK, and RC immediately loads into FSX!!What am I doing wrong?jaje

Hi JD, have you found any answers to this...I have been having the same problem for months...possible after I had to do a reinstall of the program. It does load the flight, but things work slowly, ie the options to respond to a clearance take a few seconds to come up. Thanks.Larry

Hi JD,You may miss this reply, didn't have a chance to test your suggestion for a while. Unchecking the display text does help the program move along once started, but still have the problem of slow loading of saved record and the mesg that RC was unable to load flt, but it does load after you click OK. Also when shutting down FS RC does not shut down, and when I force the closing I get a "program not responding" window.So, I guess it's not 100%, but does work other than these annoyances. Will check to forum for any future posts on this.Regards,LarryMoBo nvidia 680 SLIRAM 2-1 Ghz pc 800 DDR 2CPU Intel Q 6600 quad core 2.4 GhzGPU nvidia 8800 GTS OCOS XP SP3FSX SP2

JD, the loading problem occurs whether I am running an addon aircraft, scenery or something like Cockpit Chatter. Today as a test I started FS created a flt plan using FS (normally I use FS Commander) with a default aircraft and nothing running in the back ground. Started RC loaded the flt plan and started FS. Got my clearance and then saved the flt and closed everything. Restarted FS loaded the saved flt. started RC and loaded the rcd, same results, long wait (50-60secs) the "unable to load..." clicked OK and FS came up with RC running at the point I had saved. Even tried starting FS and then trying to load the saved flt using RC, which I thought you should be able to do,but had to load the flt using FS and then RC for the flt to load. We have a rather crude saying here in the US about "beating a dead horse", the point is that I was just curious about a possible cause for this anomaly,since someone else was also having the same problem, but it is just an annoyance, it will not keep me from using the program or purchasing some future upgraded program. I appreciate your taking the time to pursue this, I consider it a victory when a customer gets treated fairly and with respect.Regards,LarryMoBo nvidia 680 SLIRAM 2-1 Ghz pc 800 DDR 2CPU Intel Q 6600 quad core 2.4 GhzGPU nvidia 8800 GTS OCOS XP SP3FSX SP2

I got RC4 last week and I've been reading, but I have the very same problem, except my error message says "Cannot load XXXXX.flt" and note that's the FLT file, not the RCD file. And that's the end of it--no RC4 in the continuation of the flight (with the default King Air in this case). THe Wx/FLT directory is correct. It doesn't seem to matter if FS Commander is running or not. FSUIPC4 is always running. Anyway, I've attached a log file, or if that doesn't work I can email per pinned topic.edit: The flight info in the log file is not about the flight I try to reload--it's a previous flight.

first, you have to define the path to where fs stores the .flt and .wx filessecond, for every .rcd in that directory, there has to be a .flt and .wx file by the same name.if you are trying to load a .rcd, and i can't find the .flt file, then the .rcd and the path is wrong. or something happened to the .flt and/or the .wx filesjd

Thanks for the reply. Yes, as I said, the FLT/Wx path is correct. There are paired files for those flights saved when RC was running, so the explanation would seem to be that there is something wrong with one of the files--either FLT or RCD. Unfortunately, the problem occurs with any of the RCD files that I try to load (and for which there is a FLT counterpart). It seems unlikely that the problem is with RC4. So maybe it's FSX, or due to an add-on conflict (FEX, GEX, UTX, FSGen). Anyway, it'll take some time to re-install everything.

so, you are saying there is a .flt, .wx and .rcd file, with relatively the same date/time stamp, and they all have the same name?jd

Yes, that is exactly what I am saying. All three of the saved flights I have tried to load have individually a FLT, RCD and WX file with the same name and time/date stamp in the same location. FWIW, documents on my system do not default to the C: drive "My Documents" folder, but to a different drive. I don't know, I'm sure I'm overlooking something, so please excuse me because I'm definitely VFR in IFR conditions.
