Crew Info and Acars in PFPXv2

Recommended Posts

Can we have some more info regarding the ACARS and Crewinfo on PFPXv2? I have seen the folders in the C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data but no info anywhere

Basically

 

Crew Info is crew info...

 

Things like handlers at both airports, frequency and contact details for them and for refuellers.

 

ACARS is again what it says it is.

 

Some OFP's have a shortened format so you can receive a re-clearance through ACARS And print it out from the flightdeck and it appears in the correct format.

 

I've uploaded an example of what the crew information might look like from an old flightplan.

Good info, but I think we're more looking at getting the format and commands used by the config files to use them properly within the program, similar to the documentation for the flight plan templates.

Well its the same information just used slightly different so you'd just the commands from the flight plan manual.

I made a quick test based on what Captain Tim says here and he's right, all of the fields from the OFP manual work when you create a file for crew info.  Not sure how useful this is right now because I can't figure out how to get this into a briefing package.

WHen you print the released FP you get an option the left to include 'crew info'

Sorry for digging out this old topic, however, I think it fits.

 

Out of curiosity, I clicked on Crew info, just to see that there is no template for this. But now, in the "Results" tab, I have the Crew Info tab which is of no use for me. Is there any way to get rid of it? I couldn't find anything how to close the "Crew info" tab.

 

EDIT: Nevermind. It seems, if you delete the Crew info file in the folder, PFPX will not be able to find it and then removes the tab.
