wRASP - Adding Rockets?
 
Hi All;
I've been using wRASP as my preferred flight simulator- it's not as powerful as OpenRocket, but it's easier to use. It seems pretty accurate, but I can't seem to figure out how to add rockets to the library. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks!

I think the data files are just text file, so you should be able to open them using a text editor. As for adding new rockets, since it is a text file you should be able to cut and paste an entry and then modify it. Here is a link to the wrasp data page:

Resurrecting my own thread, how embarrassing :o !

I'm clearly not a computer whiz, but I cannot get my updated "rocket.dat" to work with wRASP. All I did was add rockets using the same documentation strategy as the others, and saved as a .dat, but when I put it into the wRASP directory, it crashes the program!!

I did find Rasp 3.0 (which works on Win 7) here: http://www.aresinstitute.org/index....d=114&Itemid=76, but I still cannot add files to the .dat!!

I swear I'm not an idiot: I"m saving as "all types" instead of ".txt" and making sure it gets the .dat extension...don't know what else I'm missing.

Edit- if i go very slow, add a rocket, save, test- it works...mostly. but then, I add a rocket, test, and it crashes, and even though I've saved after every addition, my rocket.dat file is wiped out back to the beginning (or near beginning). Very screwy and making me mad!
