  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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. Locale ID: 1033 Additional Hang Signature
  5. The link to Network Status in the About pulldown menu points to https://isitup.vatsim.net/ instead of https://network-status.vatsim.net/ Thanks.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Thank you Matthew. I installed the Beta [Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming it was more recent than the Alpha.
  9. 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.
  10. Does VATSIM capture flight plan, or other data, by time of day that would permit identifying "peak" hours of activity?
  11. Absolute genius! It was using TLS 1.0 and worked immediately when I added TLS 1.2. Very much appreciated...Tony
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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!
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. And then there is the issue that METARs are issued based on true north, but an ATIS is adjusted to magnetic. The farther from 0° longitude, the more the difference might matter.
  18. On the Mac, I make a copy of the aircraft as insurance then open the original in Planemaker. There are settings for the radar altimeter under Systems>General and for altitude readout, and other functions, under Viewpoint>Default.
  19. If the x-Plane FMC is not to your liking, a third-party product is "promoted" at http://www.eadt.eu. I bought it to use with a B767 from a different source, but have not been particularly satisfied (a separate conversation altogether). You can buy software to run Windows on your Mac. In a virtual environment, I run XP using VMware Fusion to proof web pages in IE and to run virtual ATC software on VATSIM. Very happily. It might run FS just fine. You can also boot the Mac in Windows, which I have not had a need to do. Elsewhere on the BB, there may be a conversation about running FS on the M
  20. I am no expert but I have spend hours experimenting with instrument panel modifications. There is a difference when the panel png file is in the root aircraft folder or in cockpit>-PANELS- folder. If it's the former, instruments are "transparent" – only the working bits will display and you are dependent on the underlying png for "appearance". If the panel png is only in the -PANELS- folder, what you place in PlaneMaker is what you see. It seems to be one or the other - you cannot combine the two methods.
  21. There's a Google scenery map at http://bit.ly/cz1hPZ. It's not complete, though. You can find more scenery at www.x-plane.org at Forums>Downloads. Search for the city designator. There is scenery for CYYZ and CYUL, at least.
  22. I should have mentioned that setting the UDP timeout to 0 has not solved the problem. I will explore the port forwarding idea, though. Thanks....Tony
  23. I am running a MacBookPro 10.5.8 with VMware Fusion 3.0.2 running XP with more or less success for VRC and Teamspeak. The only wrinkle is a receive transmit timeout after 5 or 6 minutes of not having pressed the push-to-talk button. Pilots cannot reach me by voice. Text works. I use the VRC timer to remind me to press to talk for a second and that resets the invisible timeout counter. VMWare tech support was unable to find a solution. Don't know if it's a Mac or VMware issue. That is the only flaw so far after 8 or 9 months on Vatsim.
  24. In in xsb_mac_vatsim_1.0.3.zip, should I be concerned that the readme file refers to XSquawkBox 1.0.2r1 and XSquawkBox.html is headed "XSquawkBox 1.0.2"? Thanks.
