Hi Cougar and thanks!

To prepare one or more ADEU files (remember one ADEU file holds up to 9 waypoints [8 suggested for the first one as waypoint #1 should be set equal to the present position on ground] so if your flight includes more than 9 you'll have to split it into several AWC files) you'll have to get waypoints coordinates first.

a) Read ADEU documentation at the end of GaugesUserManual.pdf (look in civa/docs folder)
b) Check SAMPLE.AWC in Civa/Adeu folder (there are many in fact)
c) Build your flight plan with FS' planner (or whatever you prefere)
d) Take the generated flight plan and copy waypoint coordinates to a new .AWC file
e) Save AWC file(s) to Civa/Adeu folder
f) Done  Cool

To edit a .AWC or .ADC file simply use notepad or any other text editor

Hope this helps...
Marco

Cougar,

I'd suggest you to use as reference one of the flight plans posted by Gianfranco, he's the flight plan master.

Dear Marco!

Maybe you can make a special utility for export FS plan to CIVA format? Because it very hard and take time to make it by hands)

otherways thx you very much for this options!

Best regards from Russia

I have to agree with Siberier. Unless you plan on flying the route many times it is just as easy to manually input the waypoint coordinates in the CDU. If there was some way to "import" a flight plan, from MSFS or another utility (like FSNavigator), and have it "write" the CIVA format "card" for the ADEU, that would make the ADEU much more usefull.

Please don't misunderstand me...the version 1.50 is fantastic and I am only making "wishes" here  Wink

Hmm...Gianfranco...I succesfully converted one file with no problem? Are you converting the FS ".PLN" file (and not the ".FLT" file). Sorry if it is a stupid question...but it only works with the FS .PLN files. Here's my .AWC:

;
; Carousel IV-A INS
; ADEU Waypoints Data Card
;
; Created by FS9toCiva v1.0
; by Rick Schaefer (c)2007
; ----------------------------
;
2 N 44*51.9 W 93*11.0
3 N 44*51.0 W 93*2.1
4 N 43*54.7 W 91*28.0
5 N 42*19.1 W 89*18.7
6 N 42*13.2 W 87*57.1
7 N 41*58.7 W 87*54.2

If you ARE converting the PLN files...what does the error message say? Hopefully we can quickly solve this problem.

Hi people!

I had a chat with Rick, so there you are:

   Hi Siberier.  What software are you using to create the .PLN file?  The only thing my program supports right now is FSBuild 2.3.  FSNav and FS9's default flightplanner will not work with my program, altho I'm working on an update.  Also, it appears that the format that FSBuild uses for it's NAT tracks is different than the REST of the flightplan, so it will break on that type of flightplan right now as well.

Hi all,

I found it works for flightplans exported from FSNav in FS2004 format, but you need to edit the cards to put in the leading zeros, that may be missing in the degrees and minutes .

Starting from waypoint 2 is a good idea for the first card, but again you need to manually edit subsequent cards, as the program makes them all 9 waypoints long (which would overwrite a current waypoint). It would have been better to make the following cards 7 waypoints long,

i.e.
     card 2  Wpts 1-7
     card 3  Wpts 8-5
     card 4  Wpts 6-3 ...etc.

This way when you reach 8 to 9 on the INS you can enter card 2 without overwriting any current waypoints, 6 to 7 for card 3, and 4 to 5 for card 4, etc.

Just my 5 cts worth ...

hi Siberer,
I downloaded Civaconvert.rar from your post because until now it's impossible to find it in the Avsim library.
I didn't find in your archive a readme file where's possible to find explanations for this utility use.
I was able to convert the flight plan in AWC files but I cannot understand how I have to proceed to obtain the ADC files. If you have a readme can you kindly post it being impossible to find
civaconvert.rar in the Avsim library.
