WDP help please
The data card screen on the WDP (version 3.7.3. 20 downloaded yesterday) does not give me the “Open Mission” button, on top left, above the “Reload WX” button.
In the “TE Mission Data” area of the DTC tab, the “Open Mission.ini File” shows me the list of training missions, no campaign missions however.
I can pick a mission and open it there……but, I do not have the “Open Mission” button on the data card, so no data is displayed.
( ps I posted a similar query yesterday in the General Forum tab, apologies if I’m breaking a rule)
Unless I’m misunderstanding the question or issue, you should be able to load the desired mission by going to File -> Open. All TEs are saved in Falcon BMS 4.33 U1/Data/Campaign/Save (I might be wrong, going from memory). The data card should auto-populate a lot of the information for you and then you can edit yellow boxes as required.
A campaign flight is also loadable in WDP if it has been saved. You need to ensure you select the correct package and flight in order to have accurate data card information.
Until someone more knowledgeable comes along, I will help you out.
What are you trying to do? Have you read the WDP manual?
Without knowing what you’re trying to do limits me to the basics.
1. Go into Falcon and join or frag a mission.
2. Set up your flight schedule if you want to change it.
3. Pick your loadout.
4. If you are doing AG recon your targets.
5. Open briefing and click print.
6. Open DTC and set UHF 15 to tower if not already done so, then click save.
7. Save the mission.
8. Exit Falcon after writing down package number.
9. Open WDP.
10. Make the sure the correct theater is selected in the upper left.
11. Go to File then Open Mission.–Is this missing?
12. Open the save you saved to inside Falcon.
Your mission should then load. Choose the option to use your saved DTC.
I hope that helps.
When using the File menu you must find the correct directory and select the filetype mask as well.
For example if I am looking for a campaign save in Korea campaign I will choose
\Falcon BMS 4.33 U1\Data\Campaign\Save
If I want to load a TE for Balkans I choose
\Falcon BMS 4.33 U1\Data\Add-On Balkans\Campaign
There is also a filetype mask for all three types at once.
Thank you all……what I failed to understand is that “open mission” is tucked away in File.
Any illustration of the WDP data card I have seen, shows “open mission” in the open, as it were, above “reload WX”.
