How to get the Plane paths to show.
« on: April 18, 2019, 01:04:21 PM »
When I first downloaded and used Tacview with DCS to record my dogfights it would show how the planes in the dogfight moved leaving a red and blue path through the area.  I do not know what changed, but I purchased the standard product and I no longer get these paths.  I do not know if I changed a setting somewhere, but I cannot find any information on how to reset it.  Thanks to anyone who can help a Newbe.

There are two possibilities:

  • Either the trail size has been set to zero. In that case, simply double click on the slider right under the time bar to reset the trail size to its default value.
  • Or, you are using telemetry without rotation information (typically from a GPS), in that case there is not enough data for Tacview to reliably display a ribbon trail, instead it should display a single line trail. You may overcome this problem by trying to export data in a more detailed form than GPX. Like some Garmin csv format for example.

Thank you sir, the ribbon size was out like you said.  I appreciate your help very much.  I probably hit it rewinding or something.  Thanks again for your help.
Thanks John
