  3. CRC will be Windows only. It is a .NET 5 WPF application. It probably wouldn't take much to convert it to a .NET 6 MAUI application, which will be cross-platform, but that's just the UI. The stumbling blocks will be the current lack of a cross-platform version of the AFV library usable from .NET apps, and possibly OpenGL support on some hardware. I definitely won't be spending any time worrying about getting CRC to work on Macs or Linux since I have zero experience with Mac development and my Linux experience is all server-side. Maybe I can partner with someone on those bits when the time comes. (.NET 6 MAUI is not widely available yet.)
  4. Hi guys, I have been working on a free VA/Passengers plugin that works on Mac/Linux/Windows. Check this out: https://xairline.org You can find me on discord if you have any suggestions/feedback: https://discord.gg/Es52XxTPJq
  5. Yesterday
  6. The reason why Bootcamp won't work anymore, is because Apple is moving away from x86-based CPUs (read: moving away from Intel). They are building their own CPUs and are using those in their Macs. This year's models (when they come out) are supposed to be the last batch that will come with Intel CPUs. Additionally, those will be the last to have Bootcamp available for it, as Windows requires an x86-based CPU, and while it does have support for ARM CPUs, not all drivers would be available for those Macs. For alternatives, there are a couple if you still have a Mac with an x86-based CPU: Bootcamp, as you already mentioned. run a VM. Parallels, VMWare Fusion, Virtualbox, etc., will also work for you. But again, you're basically installing Windows, so if you're going to do that, why not just go full stop and install Windows. The downside to this and #1, is that it requires a license for Windows. Use a Container. Crossover or WINE will work; in fact, that's what I do on my mid-2011 MBA. I can confirm that VRC works on CrossOver (I haven't seen if Euroscope is on the list), and I know that both work in WINE. With moving to Apple Silicon, a lot of that changes. To give developers time to rebuild their apps for Silicon, Apple released Rosetta 2 to allow them to work. Through this, you could still use Crossover. I've heard some places say that Wine would still work, but I can't confirm. I'll be finding out later this year when new Macs come out. This is just to get some semblance of being able to run any controller clients. The harder part is because of the languages used to code the clients. Most were able to get away with C or C++, but newer clients have moved to environments only supported by Windows. Making a client for the Mac would either require something that can be translated for compatibility (again, that would be if it were still on the came CPU architecture, which it will no longer be), or rewritten from scratch. There have been a number of conversations about that over the years, with valid reasons why it hasn't been done. The best I can suggest is to keep an eye on what Ross is doing, and see what comes up from there. Besides that, we have the alternatives above for connecting with a Mac, that have been tested and known to work. BL.
  7. I am experiencing the same issue myself on Firefox only (not every time).
  8. Perhaps it is only me - but it takes several minutes (if ever) for make a posting come thru using Firefox. Apparently this problem is not so noticable when using Google Chrome
  9. As the alternative SIDs are different, I wouldn't call it an editorial change. I'll notify Navigraph.
  10. I've been using Macs since 1984, and used to love them. But since Steve Jobs left us, the company has been going to the dogs. They deliberately build in redundancy to their products to the extent that you need to upgrade software and often hardware too, to keep using the tools you use. For example, I have a 2011 iMac running OSX 10.6.8 and it's now useless for surfing the internet. The "i" in "iMac" just doesn't work any more. The only reason I still use it is because of the legacy software I have and need to use on a daily basis because that software simply won't work on later versions of the OS and it would cost me thousands to upgrade these applications. Also their graphics capabilities simply don't match up against the boards available for Windows machines. I also have a cruddy little Windows 7 machine, with an OS older than OSX 10.6.8 and it has zero issues with any website. This policy of Apple's means that software manufacturers struggle to maintain their Apple versions and VATSIM is, I believe, wise to avoid that human-resource-hogging system.
  11. If it's an editorial change, Navigraph may not have updated - provided tracks are the same etc... If anyone is in any doubt, the UK AIP can be found here - https://nats-uk.ead-it.com/cms-nats/opencms/en/Publications/AIP/
  12. Hi all. With this forum thread, I guess I wanted to open up a small discussion to discuss the support of controller clients such as Euroscope, and I guess CRC, for Mac OS. I saw a reddit post today about somebody asking if it is possible to control using a Mac computer. I myself have used a Mac computer for years before switching over to a handy windows gaming laptop, but when I did use my Mac, I installed Bootcamp on it, which is basically just installing the Windows OS on the Mac computer. Whilst this wasn't the best solution, it did the job - I was able to control without too many performance issues and limitations. However, I heard rumours that bootcamp isn't supported anymore and either way, the reddit post made me think - why doesn't VATSIM put a lot of focus into facilitating support for Mac users to be able to control on the network? This isn't me complaining or bringing suggestions, this is just me being curious about the topic, and wondering if there will ever be a possibility for Mac OS users to be able to control on the network from a Mac computer, perhaps if Euroscope or CRC, or even vatSys will ever have Mac OS support. Thanks guys, looking forward to hearing your views.
  13. Perhaps you're using an older desciption. From UK AIP I have: Pilots unable to accept WIZAD SID when offered must inform ATC and will be re-allocated DVR SID. The lates is from 02 DEC 20, which is newer than Navigraph's.
  14. Chart states "Pilots unable to accept WIZAD SID ... will be reallocated ADMAG SID as appropriate." For whatever reason I can not find ADMAG... Same with at least one other SID out of EGKK.
  15. With some aircraft you may be ok. Others not so much. Especially if your also driving AI traffic with tcas on all. I personally only fly on one network at a time. During the day PE, then in the evening over to vatsim. I simply swap out the plugin folders for the client i want to use on a particular flight. Meaning if I'm set up to fly Socal I'll drag out my xPilot plugin completely from xp<plugin folder to a save temp storage folder outside the game then move over the PE plugin in its place. I've never found the need to pick a flight from one area of coverage to another so requiring both for me is unnecessary and removes potential discrepancies. Even though it may be possible to do so, why bother. I do know of some who routinely have both plugins installed. So in short use one at a time. I fly these networks each and every day. Let me know if you have any problems. Hope this helps. Dave.
  16. Last week
  17. There are no docs on the myVATSIM events API. There is also no plans for a merge of the myVATSIM API with the VATSIM.net API The events API is pretty straight forward, and it offers versioning. the v1 API will not have any breaking changes, these will go into a v2 if that ever happens.
  18. vNAAATS Flight Data Display is ready! Controlling the North Atlantic in style 😎
  19. Alright that explains it then. Thank you very much!
  20. I don't understand the issue. Can you explain in greater detail?
  21. I just took a look through the source code, and it seems that the "Flash taskbar on SELCAL" setting doesn't actually do anything. The code for that must have been removed accidentally at some point in the past when I did a major update. I'll add it to the todo list to get it functional again. I do not know when I will be doing the next vPilot update. It might be quite a while, since I'm currently focusing on ATC client work.
  22. AFV (the VATSIM voice library) does not support multiple sound cards, unfortunately. This has been requested and may get added at some point, but until AFV supports it, vPilot cannot.
  23. Thanks for the reply. Yes the contact me and generally message flash does work and I do run vPilot as an administrator.
  24. Hi team, I have already have this issue last year and it came back. I have a line in Headphones who works everywhere in the PC but not in Vatsim. I need to use another one USB. All drivers up to date and you already fixed this in the past . Please provid and update to fix this if it is possible Thanks a lot !
  25. Hi, VPilot is the best software in the community but it will be so great to have different channels for CPT and FO settings in the sound settings. Like this we can add a second Mic for the FO in home cockpits as well as do differents settings for each (Speakers or not etc) Thanks !
  26. It is unfortunately often a trial and error process. Be aware that some routes are rejected due to mil activity of which we at VATSIM rarely are restricted by. One method to aviod these is to plan the flight at another time of the day or during weekends, when many of these restrictions are lifted, as the military rarely closes airspace in the weekends. But if you post your preliminary route I'm sure someone will have a look. cheers
