  1. All our problems related to Euroscope and the ATIS vanished when we abandoned the ATIS maker Uniatis URL in favour of a service from vatatis.nz. No Euroscope error messages. Correct ATIS letter progressions and METAR list updates. TEST URL propogates the current letter to all online controllers. Chime and text notifications when the ATIS changes.
  2. I see. Before AFV, after the ATIS was connected, other controllers online would wait for the connected controller to TEST URL or manually change the ATIS letter and then the METAR list would update and advance by itself for all controllers whenever the METAR changed. If we had multiple airports in the region using different ATIS letters for their different ATIS's, all the letters would march to the music. After AFV, and release changes in Euroscope, this broke. Now, only the connected controller sees updated ATIS letters. Of course, we all see the colour change in the METAR list when the wea
  3. Very interesting. We are using r25 with a Uniatis URL from within Euroscope -- not vATIS -- and automated ATIS letter advancement only works for the controller who connected the ATIS. No other controllers online at the same time see updates in the METAR list. I wonder what is different -- besides the specifics of the URL. And how could the URL, which is only intended to facillitate text to voice, as I understand it, have anything to do with the ATIS letter when the METAR changes?
  4. Bernardo, this works in Euroscope r25? Before AFV and the releases of Euroscope since then, Test URL and/or manually changing the ATIS letter were techniques to trigger a letter update in the METAR list for controllers after the ATIS had been connected. Neither of these steps seem to work now.
  5. Just to repeat the question.... In r25 of Euroscope, the ATIS letter advances for the controller who has connected the ATIS. It does not advance for any other controllers online at the same time. That is what's broken since AFV and subsequent releases of Euroscope.
  6. Andreas, what version of Euroscope are you and your fellow controllers using? What ATIS maker URL are you using?
  7. I believe subscribe and unsubscribe may be applicable to vATIS users. Doesn't seem to work for Euroscope/Uniatis.
  8. In v23, if you used COPX to show the waypoint to which the flight has been cleared, Euroscope would delete the point automatically after the aircraft was by. Not so in v25.
  9. According to the ES Wiki at https://www.euroscope.hu/wp/command-line-reference/ , the .inf command looks unrestricted. The real issue is the intermitten broken communication. The absence of pilot client information may be irrelevant.
  10. Occasionally, I encounter a flight for which the .inf command is unable to determine the pilot client. And these pilots respond to a Contact Me on frequency but text/voice is not received by me. Once the pilot was using vPilot, and on another occasion, Swift. This has happened when no difficulty is encountered with other aircraft. Using v1.8.1 of AFV. Anyone else run into this?
  11. Running Euroscope on Windows 7, program hangs on exit after saving any configuration changes in the primary Connect instance. Proxies exit without an issue. This was not a problem with .23 (skipped .24). Thanks. Description: A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows. Problem signature: Problem Event Name: AppHangB1 Application Name: EuroScope.exe Application Version: Application Timestamp: 5ef87104 Hang Signature: 01d1 Hang Type: 0 OS Version: 6.1.7601.

  12. The link to Network Status in the About pulldown menu points to https://isitup.vatsim.net/ instead of https://network-status.vatsim.net/ Thanks.
  13. On an iMac running Mojave with X-plane 11.36r2, I have successfully installed and used swiftinstaller-macos-64- from the Alpha channel at https://datastore.swift-project.org/page/publicartifacts.php. But I am no expert. There are videos posted at YouTube from the developers. Search for swift-project.org.
  14. As of 10:25 EDT on Monday, October 14, there seems to be a connection problem using Swift on the Mac. A solution is being worked on. Follow along at Discord.
  15. Thank you Matthew. I installed the Beta [Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming it was more recent than the Alpha.
  16. There does not appear to be any AFV client that will run on the Mac whether you use xSquawkbox or Swift. But I can still use text through xSquawkbox. On https://audio.vatsim.net/docs/2.0/pilots/xsb, it reads, "System Requirements: Windows 7 or Above & .NET 4.7.2, MacOS and Linux versions to follow with AFV integration," but I read elsewhere that xSquawkbox will be phased out. Swift runs on the Mac but I can't see how to connect with it in the Beta version, so I [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ume integration is to come.
  17. Does VATSIM capture flight plan, or other data, by time of day that would permit identifying "peak" hours of activity?
  18. Absolute genius! It was using TLS 1.0 and worked immediately when I added TLS 1.2. Very much appreciated...Tony
  19. Running v1.3b1 of the euroNAT plugin results in error: an error occurred in the secure channel support error: couldn’t open https://pilotweb.nas.faa.gov/common/nat.html I am running Euroscope v3.2 in Windows 7 Ultimate with Service Pack 1 under VMware Fusion v11.1.0 on a new iMac. There is no problem accessing this page using Firefox in the same environment, nor do I experience any other difficulties with network access. The plugin is loading. I can access its options. (Euroscope continues to be unable to access the sector providers file at euroscope.hu.) Anyone know h
  20. From the x-plane v9 manual: X-Plane also has detailed failure modeling, with multitudes of systems that can be failed manually when an instructor wants to, or randomly when you least expect it! You can fail instruments, engines, flight controls or control cables, antennae, landing gear, or any of dozens of other systems at any moment. You can also have a friend or flight instructor (locally or via the internet, working from an Instructor’s Operating Station) fail components on your aircraft without your knowledge. The instructor can alter the time of day, weather conditions, and failu
  21. Thanks for the suggestions. Not a Mac developer but WinMerge is an option. Turns out additions to the fix file are concatenated at the bottom and easy to find. Not so easy in the nav file. Sending data to Robin. What a great service he provides!
  22. You can enter fixes, navaids and ILSs in x-plane using Location>Local Map. There are also commercial sources of nav data if you install an FMC that can interface with them. See the topic in this forum, How do us X-Plane users fly SIDs and STARs?
  23. Does anyone know of a tool that would permit merging customized files with updated versions from x-plane? (I have added fixes, ILSs, etc., for local airports not considered worthy of inclusion in the "master" files). Thanks.
