I'm looking for a way to read the filename of the currently loaded flight plan within the sim. With FSX this is straightforward through simconnect, but any pointers as to how this may be approached in FS2004 would be appreciated.
I'm writing a logger program which includes a means to plot the flight plan and subsequent flight track and wanted to avoid having to manually enter the filename and path. And yes, its the *.pln name I'm after. Easy using FSX, but not obvious on FS9.
<Macro Name="c">C:fs9gps</Macro> <Macro Name="g">C:fs9gps</Macro> // this extracts from the *.pln's title row <Element><Visible>(A:GPS IS ACTIVE FLIGHT PLAN, bool) </Visible> <Position X="581" Y="30"/> <FormattedText X="110" Y="29" Length="80" Font="arial" FontSize="14" Fix="Yes" Color="#ff9900" Bright="Yes" Adjust="Left"> <String>%((C:fs9gps:FlightPlanTitle))%!s!</String> </FormattedText> </Element>
