FPLtoIF Simbrief Classic Not Working


So for a while now, I have tried to use the FPLtoIF Simbrief classic method of generating my flight plans. However, it recently seems to not be working: whenever I enter in the correct information, I get a blank screen. I do use the Simbrief automatic option, but sometimes, I do not want to use the first flight plan that Simbrief generates. Does anyone have any solutions to this, I would love to be able to use other flight plans available in Simbrief.

Here are some images that better explains what happens:

I enter this into the classic option:

And this is the output I get:

Does anyone have any solutions to this?

I don’t know, but I experience the same thing!

What simbrief plan url are you using for your classic page?

I am using the xml data file, the one at the bottom of the page

Can you give me the url so I can try things?

Here’s the Simbrief url:

Here’s the FPLtoIF url:

Just tried & it’s working for me.

I am asking for the XML url from your generated plan.

Is this what your looking for:

Very odd. You may just need to regenerate the flight plan and see if it works that way.

I have tried that, this issue has been persistent for the last month now, none of my flight plans

Ok let me see if I can tell why. Have you tried a different format instead of jbu?

im not familiar with jbu, I haven’t used it to date. Is it compatible with FPLtoIF?

Yes it is, I just used it two seconds ago and had no trouble at all. I always use JBU format (For obvious reasons lol) but it’s always worked and I always use classic as well because I have settings inside SB I want preserved.

Like I said, I am unfortunately not familiar with the JBU format, where would I find it on Simbrief?

In your SimBrief settings there is “OFP format” Default is LIDO. In your xml I saw it was in JBU format which is why I asked. Try changing it to LIDO and see if that changes anything. Otherwise when I get some free time I can debug the plan you gave and see if it is throwing an error. When I made the original simbrief classic it was designed around LIDO format. Depending on what options you pick it may be breaking trying to parse something that is not there.

That has helped! I was able to generate an FPL using classic. Thanks so much for all the help everyone, really appreciate it!
