"Re" save the plan within FS...worked for me. Though that bug was the least of my problems!

This isn't an OS problem. It's a CS problem. I use FS Navigator to plan all flights. Once I import a plan into the FMC, I get all Lat/Lon coordinates only....for FS9 of course. I then have to manually delete all of those coordinates and manually input waypoints, NDBs, VORs,etc. The FMC doesn't recognize fixes at all like Fix01, Fix02,etc. The big problem is that FS Nav has the most recent Airac cycle but the FMC doesn't. So, from a departure airport, depending on the runway of course, you have to see what waypoints, VORs,etc, are available for the departure runway based on the aircraft's display...using the 10nm range helps with this, and then enter them into the FMC. Many times the most suitable runway won't have any available, so you have to improvise the best you can based on the nearest available waypoints,etc. The flight track may end up looking like a steep 90 degree turn after lift off but at least you'll have a normal flight track afterwards...hopefully! Tongue

You have to import your flight plan in the FMS : ROUTE page>request SEND and then on the bottom right FLTSIM FPLS, and activate it.

You have to learn how the FMS works Wink, that the only  good way to fly such an aircraft.

FMC not working?
Reply #37 - Mar 27th, 2010 at 1:45pm
Print Post  
hello,
the FMC is not working correctly in my 757. i really dont know what i'm doin wrong.



netering the waypoints manually or using fs-flightplans, it is always the same. the route never appears on the ND, the FMC never calculates the BOD. the RTE page never shows the start or arrival airports. i bought the aircraft over one year ago (when it was like supercheap) and the problems from the beginning. i removed the aircraft only after some weeks of testing without any success. i reinstalled the version 2.2 now, still have that very same problem.
cheers
