  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. 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?

  3. 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).


      A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows.

    The program hangs whether a vSMR ASR is active or not.

    The program exits normally if the vSMR plugin has been unloaded.

    Since there was no problem in r23 and the plugin has not changed....

  4. 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.

  5. 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 how to resolve this?

  6. 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 failure status of hundreds of aircraft systems and components as well as relocate the aircraft

    to any location he or she chooses.

  7. 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 Mac, and comparisons between the two simsulators.


    I like x-plane a lot but have no frame of reference for comparison.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
