Swift Enable Proxy

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I currently use XSquawkbox to connect to VATSIM.

 

It has an enable proxy feature which allows my two visual x-plane pc's to connect to the master x-plane pc XSquawkbox.

 

All this means I can see VATSIM aircraft on all five of my external visual displays.

 

Can I do something similar with Swift or will I be restricted to only seeing aircraft on screens connected to my master x-plane machine ?

 

Cheers,

 

Duncan

Hi Duncan,

 

We use this feature to fly in a shared cockpit (Using SmartCopilot).

 

Of course, in this case, the second pilot (OBS (copilot) will use his own ID and p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word.

 

The problem we have: On the OBS pilot side, only very near traffic is catch (May be less than 5 miles), as well on the Radar tab of swift, in external visual, and as TCAS alert.

 

As a ticket is opened here: https://dev.swift-project.org/T703, can you share your experience?

 

Regards.

This is what I plan to do.

 

Screens 1,2,3,4,5 from left to right.

 

Computer One (X-Plane Master) (screen 3)

 

Install Swift Core (Audio on core side).

Install XSwiftBus

 

Computer Two (X-Plane Visuals) (screen 1 & 2)

 

Install Swift Gui (more convenient for the gui to be here)

Install XSwiftBus

 

Computer Three (X-Plane Visuals) (screen 4 & 5)

 

Install XSwiftBus

 

My only concern is will the AI aircraft be drawn on all 5 screens.

 

If not I will stick with XSquawkbox which can do this.
