Hi guys. For the last two days I have been unable to successfully download flight plans. Following the normal procedure, the files I download are 1kB or 2 kB in size. Obviously not containing the data required and they don’t appear in the FMS. All the steps prior to this are normal - I get the full briefing, maps etc.
Any ideas? FYI I am not using the automatic downloader – this is just after clicking the download button and retrieving files manually
Installed the latest version (1.6.3). The program starts with the start screen and never changes it. No way to continue. I completely deinstalled and reinstalled it. No joy.
I made a sceenshot but not able to insert it here.
Thanks, the file you uploaded is correct. It has all the data needed to load the route in X-Plane. It’s normal for these files to only be a few KB in size, most formats only need a few lines of text to define a route.
The name is strange though, the “-4” at the end of the file name isn’t normal, and might be causing X-Plane to reject it. Check that your PC isn’t auto-renaming the file due to another file with the same name in the download directory.
Failing that, try renaming the file to remove the “-4” (i.e. rename it to “EGLLWSSS01.fms”) and try to import it again.
where do I find the “Detailed Flight Maps”? I made a flightplanning with Simbrief and did not find that.
As an example I attached the opening screen of Simbrief downloader. I can minimize the screen and I can close the screen but if I point to “?” there is no reaction.
Is that the folder you get to when you type %appdata%\SimBrief Downloader in the address bar? If so that’s definitely not normal, and could indicate a corrupted or very unusual/customized Windows install. I’m not sure what else to suggest if this is the case.
Have you tried running the program as administrator as I wrote above?
