  1. What a disgrace from these developers. This update is useless and didn't even add official support for MSFS. The lack of communication with their customers is an absolute shame. What is so difficult about giving us some sort of news so that we know if there's a future road map or not. Oh well, I give up. Doesn't seem like they care at all.
  2. Well thats all fine and dandy for you. But for other customers like myself, I would like to see improvements and official support for MSFS. A good developer would answer our questions and at least give us some sort of information on the status of their software. I'm not talking about the forum is dead. I am referring to the development of PFPX. I would like to hear officially from the dev themselves regarding the status and future of this product.
  3. Yeah, legitimate customers want to know about the future of PFPX a software in which we PAID for, so that makes us a troll? Get real.
  4. Then why is there no communication from the developer? Several of us have asked about the future of PFPX and no response at all. We're not asking about the servers, but for updates.
  5. Thanks Ray for your input. This is sad and so unprofessional. I really wish I never spent my hard earned dollars on this product if I knew it would turn out this way. This is definitely not the way to treat your customers who support you. I am deeply upset and will not spend another penny on future products by this developer and will spread the word to the flight sim community at how unprofessional you are. That's the least I can do.
  6. Seems like PFPX is headed to the grave just as it did with TOPCAT that I found in this thread as well - I'm deeply disappointed with the lack of communication with the customers regarding the future of their products. This is very unprofessional.
  7. I would like to address the developer of PFPX. There has been no significant changes or updates for around 3 years now. As a paying customer, I'd like to know if or when there will be any future plans or updates. MSFS 2020 has been out for 3 months now, and I'd like to see official support for it and not have to use some hacks or tricks to get it to work with it. As expensive as PFPX is. I and others would like to know what's going on. Don't keep your customers in the dark. Thank you.
  8. I'm sorry to say but at this point, I highly doubt we will see any updates or hear from the developer about the future of PFPX. Such a shame that there has been no updates for several years now.
  9. Such a disappointment in updating your customers on whether there's a continued development roadmap or not for PFPX. I wish I never bought the product knowing that it would end up like this. For such an expensive app, we, the customers are in the dark about it's future.
  10. Can PFPX be updated to use the live weather service that is built into MSFS 2020? Meteoblue are the one supplying the weather. If so could PFPX pull the weather information from them?
  11. Has development ceased? Would be nice to hear from the developer on the future of PFPX, if there still is one.
  12. Sigh, are we ever going to hear from the developer regarding updates? I'm upset that there has been a lack of communication to us paying customers. If the development is dead, at least let us know so we can seek for another alternative. This was once the best flight planner for flight simming and now we have SimBrief. But I like PFPX better because it gives us the option to use load our own airac cycle.
  13. I tried this, but when I try to load the plan in the world map, it doesn't show up the file. I double checked to see if it saved and there is definitely a PLN file in there.
  14. It's been nearly 2 months since the release of MSFS 2020 and still no updates to PFPX? Seriously?
  15. I did a comparison of loading up the flightplans in my PMDG 747-8's EFB and noticed that PFPX's version doesn't save the PDF file with the table of contents, while Simbrief's version does. I would like to request this feature for PFPX as well, as it makes viewing multipage OFP's much easier and is much more organized. I have attached a sample showing how a flight plan pdf file looks when loaded into the EFB. As you can see it has a table of content for the different sections. Whereas the PFPX version is just one big page after another.
  16. Actually tihs plane uses some format that I've never even heard of before called corte.in, which ALL of its flight plans are stored inside of this one file. I hope PFPX will add official support to export to this corte.in file in the next update. Here's an article that I found that explains it in detail: Flight Plan format “corte.in” With the release of the Flight Factor/StepToSky A320 Ultimate, I’ve also seen a new flight plan extension. The A320 Ultimate comes with a flight plan file named corte.in. At first, I thought … oh my goodness, what kind of extension is that and how to deal with it. While searching the Web, I found some useful information at AVSIM and later I found out that Little Navmap, a awesome freeware program, was able to handle and deal with this new flight plan format. That Little Navmap can do a bit more then just creating flight plans and save them in many formats isn’t important for now. Important is that a created flight plan with Little Navmap can save your flight plan in corte.in format. When you look with a text editor in the corte.in file, it looks like that we’re dealing with a kind of RouteFinder txt format, but sorry to say, it’s a bit different and not “1 to 1” transferrable although it is possible. Find below the listing of which components are mandatory (bold) in this file and what’s optional. <RTE> <NAME> <ORIGIN> [RWY] [SID] [SID TRANS] [FIX [[AWY|DCT Fix] …] FIX] [STAR] [STAR TRANS] <DEST> [APPR] [APPR TRANS] [ALTN] [CI] [FL] <> – mandatory fields [ ] – optional When you know what everything means, you could also edit a corte.in file yourself. but keep in mind that there’s only one corte.ini file that holds all the flight plans. In other words, as an example, the following formats are possible and can be read by the FF A320 MCDU:
- RTE LFBO01 LFBO LFBO – RTE LFBO02 LFBO AGN LFBO – RTE LFBO03 LFBO TOU DCT AGN LFBO I’m aware that these proposed flight plans are very limited, but what I want to make clear is that you always start with RTE, followed by the name of the flight plan, here that’s LFBO01 (02 and 03) but that could be also LFBOEHAM thus the departure and arrival airport. In the LFBO02 I added one waypoint (VOR AGN) while in LFBO03 I added two waypoint (VORs TOU and AGN) connected to each other via the DCT (DIRECT) command, but that could be (not for this) also an airway. When you understand this, then you can expand your flight plan, keeping in mind the rules to follow. I think I mentioned this before, but it’s important enough to highlight it once more. You can edit your own flight plan directly with a text editor, but in my humble opinion it’s much easier to use Little Navmap to generate the flight plan you want and then export it as corte.in. Just leave the name as it is thus corte.in. It will add the created flight plan to the corte.in file. Something needs to be highlighted although it’s an optional field; Cost Index. Little Navmap can export if you with everything of the mandatory field and the optional fields except for the CI. After consulting Little Navmap I was informed that it doesn’t support CI. Then you have the possibility to enter the CI via the MCDU what seems to me more logical. It’s in my humble opinion not normal to have a flight plan that offers already the CI value and other values like a SID, STAR and so on. To me, a flight plan should be a collection of the departure airport, waypoints and the arrival airport. Runways, SID, STARs TRANS(itions), cruizing ALT as well as this CI, should be added once a “clean” flight plan is loaded in the MCDU. This makes a flight plan universal for every flight, at least, that’s the way I see it! Now that we know this, where can you find the corte.in file? Look into the aircraft sub-folder data. Another option for creating a flight plan is of course using the MCDU and enter waypoints and/or airways section by section and save the entered flight plan.
  17. Does anyone have an aircraft profile for this plane and also will there be support for exporting and loading flight plans into this plane? I don't think it uses the default X-Plane fms format or directory.
  18. Also looking for this along with JarDesign A320/A330 X-Plane default 737-800
  19. Can someone please make a A320/A321 CFM variant of this United Airlines Livery by Holgi?
  20. Will this livery work with the new Airbus or only the old Xtended series? Beautiful livery!
