  1. We need a tool which is able to indicate not only on the map but also on airport local map where are connected aircraft prior to chose our own stand. For the moment we are able to see flying aircraft, but not the boarding or arriving ones. Something which looks like flightradar24.com ...

  3. Hello, since this morning impossible to see flight on Vattastic. I can connect on client (tested XSB and xPilot) I can log in Vattastic as an individual I can logon into Vatsim, via xPilot When I login on these different places Then a message ask me to be logged either on Vattastic (I am) and on VATSIM as a plane (I am too). What I missed ? Thank You !
  4. .rx com1 ON/OFF => works . rx com2 ON => works / OFF => do not work .tx com x switch on, unable to switch it off when these things will be fixed ?
  5. On the flight FCPP-FKKD at TOD, arrival and approach, auto-unicom announces contained "...inbound from the North..." despite flight was incoming from South. I did not check East/West yet...
  6. Yes, 200 % approved ! This version, tested against consuming scenery and demanding aircraft, works fine ! Well done Justin !
  7. Just know that P3D does not seem to be continued. less than 26000 airports, X-Plane is preparing its graphic evolution with Vulkan to replace OpenGL. As it is an open community, there are more than 38k airports available and more than 28k with 3D objects. ...
  8. Hello Justin, Many thanks for this upgrade ! I guess it'll be well received by all simmers. Best regards Daniel

  10. Sorry I missed your post https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/57200-check_fpslua/
  11. Hello, I wrote a Lua script to figure out how FPS varies and to count variation and display them. It also computes and count FPS drops under 20FPS that last for more than 30 seconds. xPilot displays at which time your sim begin to slow under limit and at which time it recovers. You ll may compare with this third party script and report to xPilot developer if needed. Hope it'll help. I use 3jFPS Wizzard in conjunction, which help proving the right calculation in my script and will help to confirm that sometimes there are abnormal disconnection, and I hope, help its developer to fix its code
  12. And why aren't these people listen to ? Why ? I was one of that people with quality slider on the right and FPS average between 35 and 60, depending on the scenery, and being disconnected. I wrote the script which points out the monitor was much sharper than it would be. But it seems there are some deaf people hiding themselves behind the cause the invoke. It is like a crusade, we are renegate, and they are knights, we are wrong they are right. Whatever your flying experience. And the fact I have evidence in front of my eyes doesn't matter and don't stop them as they just listen to t
  13. Thank you for the link to XSquawkbox Knowledge base. 20FPS means 50ms (50ms*20 = 1s) If, during the elapsed 1s, FPS is down to 10FPS one time, there will be 100ms with a low frame rate and 900ms with a normal rate. So a short freeze. If it happens rarely it is OK.The FPS average is <20FPS, strictly. if, during several consecutive seconds(2,3,10,30) , FPS drop under 20FPS, then during the elapsed time (2,3, 10, 30 s) the average speed will be < 20FPS. And for sure the real position of the aircraft will differ from the one it should be. The plane is slower than indicated. It
  14. While checking xPilot, 3jFPS.lua and CheckFPS.lua with and average speed rate of 53 and a rate of low rate of 1/1000, I observed a warning -not a disconnection- during tile loading. By the way I do not see the transparent windows with frame rate. Where it is supposed to be ? My script record automatically lasting drops <20FPS for 30 s and count them. xPilot warned me for a one minute lasting 19:14:36 - 19:15:39 which hasn't been detected. So there is a discrepancy between xPilot detection, and Check_FPS.lua detection. To find out I modified the script, allowing to increase
  15. To verify you can use the script I wrote which shows permanently FPS and FPS drop periods. When using just X-Plane FPS displays on the top left, retinal remanence don't allow to see short drops. @Justin, my suggestion is to check by FPS steps, <10FP <15FPS ; <20FPS and check it with 15 to 20 volunteers with lowered power computer. Test it on a demanding scenery. Observe fluidity with other pilots and controllers, and vote for the best admissible compromise. Then redo on another scenery. Real time testing workshop on agile mode will rapidly solve the problem.
  16. You are welcome ! The more you are the more feedback on tweaks the community will get. I saw many advice on how increase FPS, some of them are antagonist. Using this kind of tool which monitors FPS lives, it 'll be perhaps easier to find the setting you need ! If you fly low and VFR, quality is requested to enhance experience. If you fly IFR on a busy airports max FPS is the key and as buildings mask part of the scenery, the lack of detail is not critical. Enjoy !!
  17. Anybody wants more fluidity, more realism, less annoyance. As I said in earlier posts (some said "yelled", or "screamed", whatever anybody want to call a from now a protest against unjustified annoyance) I would write some tool to figure out what went wrong. Using FlyWithLua, I wrote a script which grab on the fly each FPS at frame rate. It displays history of grabbed FPS by step of 5s difference and explicitly shows number of FPS <10; <15s; <20s; <25s; <30s; <35s; <40s; <45s; <50s; <55s; <60s and > 60s. It shows total number of FPS < 20FPS, the tota
  18. Roberts, I wrote a script making things clear. The common rule for a beta is to take testers advice in account. Really not the first software I tested. I subscribed to Vatsim to share flights with people and to share entertainment, flying experience. Real pilot, real developer, real manager of dev team in IT security domain, I just say the trigger annoy pretty much more people than the very one concerned and not a handfull, but as usual a few of them are complaining. What does think the silent part ? Nobody really knows, nobody. By the way you ought to rate the number of connection
  19. Hello, Audio trouble check reminder : Windows : When overflying tray speaker icon do you see if active output is your headset ? When opening sound parameters windows, from this overfly position, is your output peripheral [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned to your headset? When opening windows sound mixer do you see your headset and check headset sound cursor is up ? xPilot Opening Settings/Audio/PTT tab is your input device showing your used microphone ? is output device showing your headset ? see cursors positions for both speak on micro : do you see color moving ? X-Plane Check
  20. I used a lot XSB 1.3.3 I tried xPilot I'll try Swift and also perhaps XSB 2.x except if they have installed a disconnection threshold.
  21. You are right, someone will do, not me I guess I am not good enough. By the way, I ll fly elsewhere until xpilot just kick off only when it is mandatory to do that. I'll check from time to time. I was kicked with FPS average over 45; M Knudsen with a more than 120 FPS average was kicked off also. So there are probably some tweaks to do. So I admit that if there are problems in controlled area, anywhere I am not convinced. And the response is probably to strong and too wide. I stop annoying the channel. Thank to the staff doing their best to makes things going better for
  22. you do not need to be online to test your tweaks. I measured the frame rate drop caused by a VATSIM connection last week. On my system (I am using swift as pilot client, but that should be identical to xPilot in terms of performance) I had a drop of 1fps when displaying in excess of 50 aircraft at the same time. That's nothing! So, if your setup gets you to operate near the 20fps-mark then please try to ease the settings of X-Plane to increase your FPS, you can test it offline. On the other hand, pilot clients should not drop your connection if your FPS drop below 20 for a couple of seconds
  23. Planes don't appear in X-Plane like vessels in StarWars ... When being at more than 5 NM it does not matter for me that a 777 can be stuck in the air like a balloon. I find it a little bit too rude.
  24. Yes, my little piece of code points out the phenomenon : random drops. I count those <10FP ; 1530FPS For hours of running, 1/1000 to 2/1000 under 20FPS, 0 below 15FPS, 0 below10FPS, on my standard configuration. By the way a FPS drop, isolated, may be hidden in network retries fluctuations. I totally agree with this point of view (I was accused to yelled so ) When the drop repeat during a gap, it might be an issue and then disconnecting may be one of the solution. I told about 50% and the quote from XSB says the same thing. On addition for Matthew and Justin : when being alone in
