I looked but couldnt work out how to get the .csv file. A normal p3d save doesnt make a .csv and I couldnt work out if you could save via FMC.
The altitude is wrong even in preflight without entering anything. I think using the star arrival somehow bypasses the problem but it should be there on every flight if the arrival is a few thousand feet ASL.
No relation with P3D. The FD-FMC save in all case a backup file with all its data when you save your flight (by calling "ICAO to ICAO"). This file is recorded in the P3D/FSX flight plan folder.
But, this function can work only if you have correctly wrote this folder path in the FMC_path.ini
file, located in the FD_FMC
Path must be wrote like following, with double "\\"
exemple : C:\\
Documents and Settings\\
Fichiers Flight Simulator X\\
This function allow to save a flight, and reload it with all FMC data and ending the flight.
If you name the saved file "ICAO to ICAO", FMC will delete its backup file when you will landing to avoid conflict with a future flight with same departure and destination.
The FD-FMC backup .csv file is like a black box.
in red, saved flight not completed.
In bue : When you save a flight, FD-FMC overwrite the PLN file of FSX with all waypoints (SID, STAR and Approaches) added in the flight plan (mandatory otherwise when you will load your flight to ending, if FSX GPS has not the flight plan file updated, there will be an error).
When you land, FMC data backup file is deleted, and the Flight plan file updated with all waypoints is renamed by ending by "FD-FMC Backup".
This is a .PLN file according FSX/P3D rules.
So, if you want use this flight plan file with an aircraft that has not a FMC, you can rename the file in PLN and load this flight plan in all aircraft; You will have all waypoints (SID, STAR and Approach), but without speed or altitude data of course....
