  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 weather changes but the automated ATIS letter updating remains broken.

    You are suggesting that after the weather changes, all controllers -- who do not have an ATIS connected -- should match the current ATIS letter and press Test URL and the METAR list will updates for all airports with connected ATIS's in the region?

  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. 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?

  7. 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....

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  10. 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.
