I'm a former glider pilot, only flying Condor now.

I have developed some utilities for Condor, including a task converter for XCSoar.
I have recently received requests for a similar tool for LK8000 (condor2nav which is still referenced on your site is not used anymore)

I'm starting to write an LK8000-writer but I can't find any information on the LK8000 page about file formats (searched in the FOUR manuals) ... and the contact link is broken

I could obviously search the source code (someone already helped me a bit) but I hope someone on this forum has the information easily available :

Task file :

1/ Is it possible to have different sector types for waypoints ?
2/ I have identified the "style" fields which corresponds to the same field in a .cup file
3/ From the source code, we found out that the "flag" is "2" or "5" if "style" is 5
4/ what does the "format" stand for ? (only saw "2" in the files I saw)
5/ is it possible to add a "comment" field in the waypoint record ?
(Condor allows to define altitude limits for waypoints and has non-standard "window" waypoints - in that case the "comment" field allows to store more information)

ACF file :
What are the possible values for : "AircraftCategory1" and

Many thanks in advance !!
