The latest TacView (0.93c) adds support for F4 (requires one extra conversion step VHS -> ACMI)!

http://lomac.strasoftware.com/tacview-en.php

Note: Also download Vhs2Txt Falcon 4 VHS converter tool made by Nayfe.

TacView is x10 times easier to use than the built in ACMI tool in F4 and a nice tool to analyze what went wrong in SP/MP flights and hopefully learn from it wink

Works with following sims:

DCS: Black Shark, Lock-On: Flaming Cliffs, Falcon 4, Digital Fighters

Great tool and kudos to author/s for sharing!

Correction, I just read that F4 support have been there since version 0.91 but none the less, it's a great tool!

I have not been able to use this with F4AF. A nice readme.txt would have greatly appreciated, seems I get the exe and the jar file. I convert the vhs file using the jar file and I get something that won't open with tacview. I understand the whole point of the jar file is to convert the vhs file so tacview can read it. However it doesn't?!?!

Anyone got this program to work with F4AF?

Yes, after some fiddling I have it working with F4:AF. I agree that a brief readme.txt would be nice but below is the link I used to get it working...

http://www.f4forums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10957

The key for me was to start it in console mode instead of just dbl-clicking the JAR-file, else it choked on bigger F4:AF ACMI files.

Also not so obvious the first time you run it (from the forum linked above)....

Quote:

With first button you browse to designate your falcon root folder.

With second you browse to choose the ACMI to convert.

And finally you cliick "Run". You'll have the converted file in same folder than original.
