Hi !

 

I've one Question regarding the CPDLC and PMDG. I've read on the facebook page, that after the initial release of the T7 the Vatsim client Project wants to discuss a possible implementation of the CPDLC Function in PMDG Products.

 

Did you guys already talk to PMDG? And do they consider to implement it themselves. i'm just curious, cause in the PMDG forum i've read that they will release a SDK which sounds like someone else has to implement the CPDLC function.

 

Thanks in advance for your great work on the client!

Just a small request.

Would it be possible to implement a tone on specific output (speakrer) to "ring" when an ATCO send me ma "contact me"?

I often remove my headset in cruise bud then i don't hear the privat message sound of the ATC.

 

Get a USB headset and map your voice through the head set and the sounds trough your speakers, it's easy done in current pilot clients.

But if voice is set to the headset, won't the alert sound also come through the headset?

What i talk about is that you hear a special sound ("ding-dong") on a selectable output device for privat messages (a Friend, a contact me from a Controller or a SUP) and ONLY that.

 

I have everything on my headset (default device) for not to desturb my surrounding since I don't live alone at my appartment *g* and the notification from the chitchat on unicom should not be on the speaker.

That is already implemented in the current clients, please read the manuals

Yesterday

Dear community,

the project is still on the road. We made some very good progress in the past weeks and months, but most of it was in the C++ backend - so I don't want to bore you with developer stuff

However, it is a cool feeling to log into the test server, see the list of controllers and aircrafts populating, start chatting with others, see booked Controllers and a lot more.

We are now starting to integrate the simulators to see the smooth landings of your VATSIM colleagues inside your favorite simulator.

 

You want to hear more or even watch a demonstration of the current status? Join the W14 Vatsim Conference and listen the presentation...

Hello community,

 

fortunately (changed from unfortunately as I had a blond moment), we are making as well good progress. I had a chat yesterday with Roland about the last results and here we are.

Connection to test servers are done and stable, FSX integration is on its way as well as more of the requested features. It will take some time, but we are working down the line and there are no major issues at the moment holding the project from further development.

 

As we had spoken about CPDLC: yes its already on the agenda. We had made the conclusion, that we still first finish the major steps in the client to [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ure we have no changing in the major coding and delivery of informations, so PMDG and aerosoft f.e. can connect themselfs without having any issues, or even implement the whole client into their products.

 

Next steps will be then the interpolation algorythm for the aircrafts movement and much more.

 

So stay tune and even visit the W14 conference for more live information in regards of the client.

 

Kind regards,

 

Sascha Steingrobe

I have to say that your dev team is by far the best at making periodic progress reports

Interesting. I'm pretty puzzled by your observation, noting that we are getting near-daily updates/Q&A/traffic on vPilot. But maybe these updates you are referring to are on Facebook; I don't use Facebook.

I think Jang was just giving some positive feedback to the dev team.... I'm sure no slight intended against Ross et al. Maybe just a little "lost in translation"

Ah, my mistake with vPilot. Again, I've been away from VATSIM for quite a bit, so I only got to know about vPilot just yesterday. As far as I see, they're also keeping very good contact with supporters! I'm really looking forward to both clients!

 

No negative comment intended for anybody; just cheering all who are working hard for a good cause!

Look, as we have something to tell you we will do. Ross is developing on his Client, as we have a different approach. frequent updates are given by us when it comes to new information about the development worth to give. I don't see a need for a comparison even not after release as we have different intentions. Stay tune

There was maybe a quiet period. There are different reasons (no, it was not that nothing happened ). Sascha was busy with real life and I gave coding priority. We also doing a lot things on the C++ backend which is probably not interesting for anyone, because you will never see it For example, I'm working on a template method, to register/unregister receiver objects that get called when a configured key is pressed (This leads finally to the report, PTT is done)

So I guess, reports will come more frequent when we are close to beta, can present all the features of the GUI, get people to start preparing data (like mapping, etc). If I would start talking about dangling pointers, multiple inheriance, abstract interfaces, virtual methods.... you look at me and ask: "What the hell..."

 

Just some explanation. No worries

Amazing project, really I couldn't believe all the features that I was reading on the specifications list, some of them where above my imagination.

 

I have a question about the SDK, I'm currently using a custom made app that calls me when I have a 'Contact me' message. Squawkbox interface offers an offset on the SDK to announce incoming chat, Private Conversation pop messages, info and error events. Will the new client have this included on the SDK?. Many people are requesting different ways to configure how does the client advise you on an incoming Contact Me/Private chat, a SDK option could be the solution.

 

PS: This CPDLC feature, only the developers of the aircraft could add it?, will be a way to add it to the 'oldies'?, like a general gauge or something?
