#342210 Maybe a stupid idea...but...
Is there any way that real world data from http://www.flightradar24.com/ could be integrated in EuroScope trough a live server, a simulator server or something? Would be really cool if we could follow real air traffic in Euroscope! :mrgreen:

#342321 I know that ES not is made for that, but i think it would be nice to have the aircrafts moving on a high realistic radar where we can change colours, move and edit the tags, show SID/STARs and airways drawed on the map ++. -instead of the google map =)

You know my C++ is not that perfect, but I also thought about that. Would assist in testing and - where able - programming.

SBS-1 is available :)

Those darn real world pilots, they just don't listen to ATC instructions!!! ;)

#343742 I uploaded a trial version of the program to http://www.euroscope.hu/sbstofsdproxy/SBStoFSDproxy.zip. It is actually a very lightweight FSD server. You can connect to it with EuroScope. It supports multiple connections therefore you can share your SBS-1 traffic. It also supports private chats, but no more functions.

When started you can connect it to the SBS-1 TCP/IP socket by defining the server and the port. It displays all the incoming data in the list and also sends the data as plane position to EuroScope clients. It has a built in error recovery to be able to interpret the non complete lines from SBS-1.

If it has data about a plane then it moves it in every 5 seconds (to be conform with FSD) to the last known direction with the last known GS. When a real coordinate is received then an IDENT is sent. In this way you will know what is simulated and what is real.

In the packet you can find some data files:
- icao24.txt - is a list of the ICAO hexident and plane registration numbers (there are 7818 records so far)
- aircrafts.txt - is a list of registered aircraft based on their registration number (161868 records so far)
- flightplans.txt - is a list of flight plans (19024 records so far)

You may need to copy the Microsoft DLLs and manifest files from your EuroScope installation if the EXE does not start.

Just try it and have some fun.

p.s. You may send notes on it to here, but it is not a fully supported program. Just use as it is.

#343823 Yes, that is what I tried to suggest by "You may need to copy the Microsoft DLLs and manifest files from your EuroScope installation if the EXE does not start." Copy the following files to the EXE folder:

mfc80.dll
mfc80u.dll
mfcm80.dll
mfcm80u.dll
MFCMIFC80.dll
Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest
Microsoft.VC80.MFC.manifest
msvcm80.dll
msvcp80.dll
msvcr80.dll
