Callsign not updated in voicelist (Euroscope)


Recommended Posts

Since the begin of when vPilot released (maybe this issue is also still in SquawkBox / FSInn), I noticed something odd when changing callsigns. I notice that after a pilot changes callsign without restarting vPilot, the callsign doesn't get updated in the voicelist of Euroscope (see the link below). However, if a pilot first restarts vPilot, then connect with a different callsign, the callsign in the voicelist does gets updated.

 

Is it possible for the callsign to get updated in the voice server, without restarting vPilot?

In the previous days, I have been doing multiple flights (3) with different callsigns. However, I noticed a (new?) problem!

 

In all cases, the first time that I talk with my second callsign, and ATC starts responds, my connection to the voice server seems to be broken! According to vPilot, the TX and RX buttons are lit (that you are connected to the frequency), however, the frequency itself changes from blue to white (not connected). Also, I never heard the 'disconnected' sound. This all was fixed by restarting vPilot.

 

Do you need a logfile and/or video showing this issue?

Yesterday, I once again did 2 flights, and this time I'm not the only one with the problem.

 

Here is the debug log (I started it shortly after having the problem as I [Mod - Happy Thoughts]umed the problem was solved a few flights before) https://pastebin.com/WU9z3Yz4

 

This is what I did:

 

  • I logged in with a different callsign
  • I heard everything normal (busy frequency), then, at some point I asked IFR Clearance
  • According to a friend of mine, the controller was giving the IFR Clearance, however, I couldn't hear anything.
  • I restarted vPilot, called him again, now I can hear him. Asked a radio check (5/5) and the IFR Clearance

 

A while later, my friend (who also did 2 flights) also asked IFR clearance, he had the exact same problem, he couldn't hear anybody after he asked clearance, but before, everything was fine. Shortly, the controller gave the clearance via text, then he gave the readback via voice. I told him to restart vPilot to solve the problem.

I'm afraid that the debug log isn't going to be helpful if it was started after the problem occurred. If you keep having the problem, I'd suggest running in debug mode at all times. And when the problem recurs, make a note of the time so that I can look for that specific point in the log.

I can confirm this, as I'm the one Dave refers to. Started P3D, then vPilot. Did a full flight without issues. Kept P3D and vPilot running, but disconnected and reconnected with a different callsign. At first, everything was fine as I was able to listen to the frequency. After asking for my clearance, the problem started. I heard nothing, the controller sent me the clearance via text and I read it back via voice, which he able to hear because Dave told me the controller said "readback correct", which I couldn't hear.

 

I then restarted vPilot and reconnected. From there, everything was back to normal again.

 

vPilot is version 2.0.14

Yesterday, I once again did 2 flights, but this time, I have a debug log from when I switched to EDMM_1_GND with my first callsign.

This time, I was again flying with somebody else, and I asked him if he could listen to some static sound (just keep the mic open for 2 seconds), which he could hear. I did this at Line 1135. [21:27:02.722] Push to talk state changed: True https://pastebin.com/FnWPacWi

I'm confused ... your description here doesn't mention any problems, so I'm not sure what help this log would be.

Last week, I have been controlling a few sessions at Amsterdam Radar with nobody below me. I noticed that at least 4-5 pilots had the same problem. All of them did a turnaround without restarting vPilot, just changing the callsign. The moment after they release their PTT (for asking the IFR Clearance), they can't hear anything. In all cases I had to tell everybody to restart vPilot to solve the problem.

Hello,

 

As per above. I am also having this problem with vPilot. So I am guessing the only fix to this is having to keep re-starting vPilot rather than turnaround, disconnect and reconnect?
