I created X Airline for anyone wants to build their own VA for x-plane pilots. It is free and still under active development. If you want to quickly setup a VA without worrying about web hosting, give it a try! It is FREE. There is no plugin required and it works with x-plane's native UDP protocol. Works on Mac/Linux and of course Windows. Discord: https://discord.gg/Es52XxTPJq
Dear community, I am currently planning the technical side on participating in the upcoming ctp together with a friend as copilot. We would be sitting in front of the same PC with some sort of pilot flying/pilot monitoring workload sharing (not! remote shared cockpit). The main question I have is how do we organize audio/headsets? We have a single sim (x-plane) and therefore only a single x-pilot instance running. We have 2 USB! headsets We have 2 monitors with speakers but no external speaker. We have multiple ways of realizing the PPT button (on the yoke, via keyboard, via a separate second numpad like device) We have a laptop fo charts and stuff The Problem: the single x-pilot instance can only handle a single audio device attached as input and/or output but I would like us both to have headsets. Idea 1: Using a single headset mic and monitor 1 speakers as output (the other monitor would output the sim sounds). We would then have to hand the headset over if one of us needs a short break. We would use the numpad device for PTT and hand it over as well. I currently dont know how well we can understand ATC on the monitor speakers (having a first testflight this weekend). Idea 2: We could run a separate Audio for Vatsim client instance. I dont know if this is even possible/legal as the AFV client only shows up in the ATC software section. With this Setup I would hope to even assign a second PTT button???? Idea 2A: Using a stand alone AFV Client on the laptop. Therefore also having a second ptt button. Idea 3: There is some magic piece of software that accepts the input of both headsets and channels it into one virtual device which then connects to x-pilot. And the other way around splits the signal coming from x-pilot to be used by 2 separate devices. This setup would still require a PTT button hand over. Conclusion I would prefer idea 2/2A but dont know if this is legal on vatsim (dual connect) or if it can work this way. Could somebody please shine some light onto this or might give an idea for a better place to look for a solution? Happy flying Bernd
Hey how are u doing ? I just recently joined vatsim, I am on xplane (using xpilot client) and I am having an issue with the jarA330. Whenever on the xpilot client I right-click on a frequency in order to tune it to COM1, it does so but I am only able to speak with COM2. Could anyone help me please ? Do you guys know if someone wrote a post about it or do you know the solution so that I would be able to speak on COM1 ? Thanks in advance !
Hi! This error might very well be due to the fact that I am running beta software (xPlane 10.50r2), but I guess there might be a non-beta reason as well. So, Im running xPlane beta 10.50r2 on a iMac (Catalina) purchased in 2019 (i5 3,7 GHz, radeon 580x GPU, 40GB ram). The plane I'm flying at the moment (I haven't yet tested with other planes) is the IEXG 737 payware plane. I've followed several tutorials so I believe the installation to be OK. Problem The sim works great when not using Swift. Also, I believe there are no problems with Swift running as long as I have not connected to VATSIM (online). After connecting, it can be everywhere from a few seconds (20s has been the least amount of time before the sim crashes) up to 15 minutes. Swift runs just fine, it even tells me that it will auto-logoff as "it seems I quit the sim or the sim crashed..". I've attached two xPlane log files from when the sim crashed. Are there any clues? Does it have something to do with Swift trying to place other liveries/planes into my "world"? It seems the sim is crashing faster when there are planes/other simmers close to me. That is BTW another problem, I have never seen other live planes when running the sim through the windows of my plane, only e.g. on the radar (Swift). I don't see the planes, not the callsign or anything. Looking outside the windows its like Im not online... The tower/controller sees me just fine over the radar at least... Any suggestions? First priority is the bug that renders my sim useless for online flying. Secondary, the invisible online users/liveries... Thank you for helping out 😃 Oops: So I guess I am not allowed to attach .txt files (xPlane logfiles), I've attached the mas .pdf files... Log_crash.pdf Log_crash2.pdf
