I have downloaded the package of Dale Ashcroft for Royal Saudi Air Force.

I installed everything but have problems with the FP.

The FP contains 54 C130 wnd it goes of 5Week period.

I tried to convert with AIFP but it only saved as txt files.

When i try to compile with TTool it doesnt work.

I get error messages for the 5Week function and also about the times in the FP.

I really dont know what to do at this point.

Thanks for help.

P.S. i use FS9
That's because multi week flight plans are not compatible with FS9, you'll need to delete anything from week 1/1/ onwards if that makes sense

The problem is that FS9 doesn't use multi-week plans. Ttools was programmed before FSX so multi-weeks will not be recognised.

So you have either got to alter each plan to just one week manually or mod existing plans from another source to fit the package.

With converting multi-week plans start at the first in the list and choose which week you want to convert using AIFP to see what the plans do. Then remove all the other weeks traffic from that list. Then remove the week number coding from each leg you keep. Finally you have to alter the flightplan type to WEEK.
Then repeat for every other aircraft until the list is complete.

The key thing is not to choose a week which ends with the aircraft landing away.

Depending upon the number of aircraft it can be a lengthy operation. The other thing I would say is that you really need a text editor rather than using notepad for doing this. As with a large body of text in notepad it is easy to lose track of what is what. In an ideal world if you have an editor that uses colour coding it will make life so much more simple.

You might be able to do this editing from within AIFP but I have a feeling it won't let you if you only have FS9 installed. I think it just says not compatible.

There is no simple solution I am afraid.

The latest version of AIFP will let you edit multiweek flightplans for use in FS9. I recently modded some multiweek bizjet plans. I would save them as the text files and convert using ttools.

I'm not sure if there is a tutorial for converting flightplans. If there is it may in the pdf that comes with AIFP udpate. I just loaded up a flightplan in AIFP and picked a leg I liked, deleted the others and adjusted for the home airport if needed.
