Handoff Cancellation Not working


Recommended Posts

I thought the HC message is for the controller who was requested to take handoff and not for canceling a handoff initiated by me. Treat it as known bug in ES, I will change.

 

I believe it's for both. I may have it wrong in VRC though. The way you do it in ES might actually be the way it was originally intended. I'd have to see how ASRC does it to be sure ... but I tried very hard to mimic ASRC's behavior back when I wrote VRC.

I'm glad this is going in the right direction guys.

 

I hope this will fix the VRC-ES interaction bug where the ES user sees VRC controller tracking the plane but actually this ES user still tracks the plane (all others and the VRC controller see him still tracking). This can only be sorted by reconnecting to the server...

I do not think that this situation can happen. It is possible that the ES owner thinks that handoff was canceled, while the VRC controller sees the pending request. That is not visible to others. When the VRC controller finally accepts the handoff then all goes to normal. It is published to all controllers and ES releases the plane even there was no pending request (from his point of view).

 

But sure, we should agree to handle these situations the same way.

That is what it seems like happened to me.

 

I initiated a handoff (F4 Code callsign), I then Cancel (F3 Callsign) and my ES screen shows a regular tag that I own. The VRC controller does not know I cancelled and his screen still shows pending request and accepts, and both our screen shows the VRC controller owning the tag.
