export FP to MaddogX .mdr

Recommended Posts

Hello,
I've been told there is an error in the exportation of a flight plan for the .mdr format, is this the right place to report it?

 

Thanks

Stefano

Thanks for your reply. This is related to the new version of FlythemaddogX which is still not being released. I can't provide screenshots because I don't own PFPX, but some of our beta testers do.
I'm being told that the FP when exporting to the .mdr has the latest fix of an airway deleted.

Example for the reported issue:
LIML GEN DCT TORTU UM858 RAMEN M732 CAR LIEE


Two segments of an airway. UM858 (from TORTU to RAMEN consists of those fixes:
TORTU-AKUTI-SUDAS-LIBLO-AJO-CORSI-MINKA-ORVEX-BOLOT-RAMEN

and M732:

RAMEN-KOVAS-CAR
when loaded in the .mdr format inside the FMS shows like this inside legs page:
LIML GEN TORTU AKUTI SUDAS LIBLO AJO CORSI MINKA ORVEX BOLOT CAR

As I said, the last point belonging before to an airway is being removed.
I don't know if anything can be done at this time, but I wanted to report this on user's feedback.
 

Thanks a lot.

Stefano

I can add an example.

 

Flight Plan:

KBOS LBSTA6 LBSTA V139 BURDY J121 SEY PARCH2 KJFK
 

PFPX mdr file:

KBOS
KJFK/KPHL
DIRECT LBSTA 42.800000 -70.613528
V139 BURDY 41.955317 -70.952069
J121 SEY 41.167436 -71.576086
 

Simbrief mdr file:

KBOS
KJFK/KPHL
DIRECT LBSTA 42.799999 -70.613525
V139 EXALT 42.719055 -70.613510
J121 SEY 41.167366 -71.576324
PARCH2 (FAP) 40.677753 -73.723053
 

Note that the PFPX mdr file omits the last piece of the flight plan

PARCH2 is a STAR and would be selected via the FMC, I don't believe PFPX exports procedures to any aircraft addon other than the sim default  .pln format.

greetings all, the option to browse to the folder to export the flight plan to the maddog does not exist.

 

therefore, once you plan the flight, you can't recall it as a company route as a file path isn't allowed to be selected.

 

is there a fix for this on the way?

 

regards,

Perez

Select the export line followed by BROWSE, works on all four options here.

 

However as posted elsewhere there is an issue with the exported format.

This does not work.

Exporting as either the 2006 or 2008/2010 model yields the same results.

 

Here's the route according to the OFP (ATC route for simplicity):

N0431F360 TOR6D TOR DCT ARTOR/N0432F370 DCT ALASA/N0430F360 UM852
           EKERN/N0432F370 UM852 HAM UP605 AGATI UP992 RIMET T157 KERAX KERA2G
 

Here's the actual route exported in MDR:

ENGM
EDDF/ETOU
DIRECT TOR 59.169109 10.259267
DIRECT ARTOR 58.334419 10.148983
DIRECT ALASA 54.808613 9.961667
UM852 TUGDU 54.652779 9.910833
UP605 NOLGO 53.396866 10.138342
UP992 RIMET 51.333889 10.219444
T157 ODIPI 51.143890 10.215556
KERA2G (FAP) 50.008801 8.462090

 

 

It's missing pretty much the entire en-route portion.

Any news on the Export function for the new Maddog X?

I hope you can issue a hotfix soon.

Same question as above, please don't let this program fall down.

Maddog X is still waiting for a fix.

The route format from the old Maddog version has not changed so it shouldn't be such a big deal to fix.

All routes are truncated by PFPX usually in the middle of the last airway, much prior to the STAR.

A Hotfix for this would be much appreciated.

Hello, it seems there's an upgrade coming. 

Please consider fixing also the export issue for the Maddog X -which is definitively an issue-.
