FMC error

I am not sure whats happening here, but ever since the last two updates, this is what I get when I retrieve flight plans into the FMC database that was created by PFPX latest version. I have reinstalled both the 757 and PFPX but I still continue with this issue. Can anyone help please? Thanks.

Save the PFPX flights in the default FSX/P3D format (.PLN), then load it into the CDU.

All I see after loading a Co Route (.rt route saved by PFPX), is the name of the Co Route, and nothing in the LEGS, or RTE, pages.

I know PFPX should be placed here:
D:\P3Dv4\Captain_Sim\navigation\routes

But not sure what format it should be. pl or rt files?

I tried that and it came up with Error, after Error as waypoint names, so I reverted to using the FSPlans option lower right, and works perfectly, ofcourse, after I have exported it for other planes too, as well as P3D.

PFPX flight plans/routes should be saved in the default P3Dv4 .PLN format, in Documents\Prepared v4 Files, and not in X:\Prepar3D v4\Captain_Sim\navigation\routes, as it does not save in the newer Captain Sim .RT format. It only saves in the older .RT format compatible with the oder CS 757 v4.6, and CS 767 v1.5.

Hi Guys,

thanks for the, quite long and confusing, explanation.
Is it so hard and complicated for CS to export routes like all other developers?

I am really a fan of the Boeing 757, but these ongoing bugs and complicated usage of this add-on really bothers me.

Every Add-On has it's simple Export-Function directly linked with PFPX/Simbrief, only CS is not getting it working.

PFPX saves the reoute in the older .RT format for the 757 v4.6, and 767 v1.5, and not for the 757 III (or 777).
The best thing to do, is to save the PFPX route as a default P3Dv4 .PLN, then load it into the 757 III CDU - RTE page > SEND (LSK3L) > FLTSIM FPLS (LSK6R), then scroll through the pages until you find the route you saved, and select it to load it.

Please do something about the errors we get from uploading routes into the FMC.. I like being able to Load Routes into the FMC from PFPX and so forth yet, when we do it, I always get a bunch of errors and have to go through too delete the errors when you try to build a route into the FMC..

What errors? When errors? Have you read the previous 3 pages?
