Hi Guys


Well as expected TRK files aren't recognized by the patched FB... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif considering that i don't want to loose my beloved memories and that NTRK files recorded with the Prepatched game are recognized after applying the patch, has someone figured how to transform TRK into NTRK files ?

Good flight to you !

IIRC you can play a trk file and press the pre-mapped /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif quick record button and then record an ntrk.

Of course you will need a pre-patched version of FB for this....

Hope I'm not wrong /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

are we ever going to be able to play .trk's again in FB?

is it a "bug" that will be fixed or has something changed deep in FB's coding that means .trk's are history?

all my tracks are .trk /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Hi fluke

I know what you mean, i've flown more than 400 missions with different pilots, and i usually review my old replays and then try to fix my jaw back in place /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif this game is really amazing.

This is the main issue that prevents me from applying the patch...but what if the next addon with all the new planes requires the 1.11 FB :0

Most of my tracks are TRK after i experienced some "Hiermesh" problem with the NTRK. After that i discovered that the NTRK function worked properly if i waited 1 or 2 minutes after stopping the recording before actually quiting the mission /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I will try the solution proposed before as soon as i get home, last night i tried an innocent solution by manually changing the TRK extension to NTRK, i applied the patch but the file remained unviewable.

Fortunately i had a backup of the most valuable folders (Paintschemes,missions,records and users, with the conf file of course), so uninstalled FB and reinstalled it again.

Good flight to you !

The ONLY way you'll watch those .TRK files again is to play them on an unpatched version of FB and while viewing them record an online track (I use numpad del to toggle track recording on) (or you can press escape and press the start recording button then resume playback of the track).

You can take the newly created .ntrk files and view them on the latest patched vesion of FB.

i haven't tried it but i remember someone saying all you had to do was rename the extention from .trk to .ntrk and it would work.... if not sorry

Hi JRJacobs
"

No that doesn't work /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif but the long way solution does perfectly, i review each TRK file and use the quick record feature (check control settings) and the file is saved as NTRK. Altough the file size increases a lot (for example one 442 Kb TRK file turns into a 6548 Kb NTRK file) this is the only solution to preserve your beloved memories no matter if you install the patch or not.


Jus remember to wait a couple of minutes after stoping the recording before actually quiting the replay or mission (if you're recording an NTRK right from the start).

Good flight to you !
