question online flying

Recommended Posts

I flew a lot in fsx but now I am switched and up and running within x-plane , I search for a small group of people I can fly with.

There is no LAN connection as in fsx so my question is:

where do you fly together?

I would like to fly with smaller airplanes like an-2 or flyet c172 the latest one.

So vatsim and ivao are not my first likes because you need the atc and for my simple flying It is not necessary.

Any ideas are welcome.

I am from the Netherlands so if you know usa or canada then I hope they fly during the day.

 

thks in advanced

Paula have you done an internet search for online flight simulation or something similar?

Well, I should know how to help, but I really don't...

 

Tomorrow (sunday) I'll dedicate part of the day to a compilation of posts about graphics settings, for Nvidia users, and will also try to find out more about online flying in X-Plane 10.

Paula,

 

Bravo Zulu for searching before posting, wish more would do that, not because of the posts but because that's where the real information is - not just the opinion of someone you don't know.

 

I'm not an X-Plane user, but I'm aware of a handful of active groups for that platform. Thing is, it doesn't matter if a group is X-Plane or not, as the main online flight networks cater to FSX, P3D and X-Plane (and a few more). Flying is flying, it doens't matter what the individual platform is.

 

I've run one type of group or another for the past 12 or so years, and been a part of many others. I recommend you find a group that does the type flying that interests you. Don't be concerned with the individual platform (FSX, P3D, X-Plane), and look for people who you can learn with.  It would of course be great if they also used the same platform, but that isn't strictly necessary.

 

I hope this has been helpful to you.  Best wishes... I hope to see you as a leader in flight sim community one day - we need them!

I think there should a hosting multiplayer in X plane 10. I think i did see it in the demo version. or as DaveCT2003 says search for a group.

 

BTW you can fly on Vatsim or IVAO when there is no ATC online , there is always some traffic happening. Just file a Flight plan and say your intentions that's it. 

 

 I fly in the Netherlands (from India) always fly from EHAM to Seppe VFR.

Is there someone who knows a little more about a network which they uses.

It is called NETFLIGHT.

Paula,

 

Flying online on IVAO or VATSIM, does not require ATC at all. You just need the interface to connect to the network that's all (of course you need to register to Ivao or Vatsim). If an ATC is online, good, if not, then you do some auto information on 122.800 and fly. So you can invite some friends to fly on Ivao or Vatsim and enjoy.

 

Xsquawkbox is for Vatsim and XPX 64 bits.

X-Ivap is for IVAO and XPX 32 bits only

I think there is a plugin required

I am still telling you also fly vatsim & ivao and fly when there is not ATC , you can check if the ATC online

 

vatview.com

 

webeye.ivao.aero

 

Xsquawkbox (I think they have released the 64 bit)

 

X-Ivap

 

why don't you want to fly with an ATC ? are you still learning or practicing ?

I installed a plugin but crashes each time

I figured out that the culprit is gizmo

I can switch it off but then I miss the latest sky addon

 

ATC is not for me anymore due to the fact I have to ask each sentence to repeat because I cannot hear the high tones

Mo it isn't. It was a wrong define by Laminar, which caused a hidden compile error. And if another plug-in like gizmo dared to allocate memory the system crashed. XSquawkbox was later updated so that this bug no longer occurs.

to be honest I dont understand your answer

I have enabled and disabled one for one the plugin's

and it turns out that with disabling gizmo the NETFLIGHT works well.

In any other case it is not.

It has nothing to do with Xsquawkbox I dont use it up till now.

So what do you suggest me to do?

The ivap plugin is 64 bit now. The sound is really clear, like a telephone call. Or you just connect to ivao and find an apt with no atc. Its really fun to use an online network,because of all the traffic you see and hear around you.

Paula,

 

I just installed netflight and have no issues connecting to the network with Gizmo64 active.

 

You need to post more details.

 

Operating System, X-Plane version, are you using 64 bit? ... and most importantly, make a post with your Log.txt file attached after you have crashed the simulator with Gizmo installed.

 

The log.txt file will name and shame the plugin that crashed the simulator.

 

I understand that it may feel like Gizmo is at fault but the Log will tell you the real story.

 

 

Longranger's posts can be expanded to this:

 

When Gizmo64 is installed it reserves a certain amount of RAM for itself.

This can cause other plugins to crash because a bug was found in the X-Plane Plugin SDK.

 

It is neither the fault of Gizmo OR the other plugin, it's just an annoying software bug.

 

When Gizmo64 is removed, the "other plugin" (be it netflight or squawkbox) is not in the same place in RAM and does not hit the bump in the road.

 

 

As posted above, if you provide your log file we can see more clearly where the real fault lies. Netflight may need an update as the X-Plane SDK bug has been fixed in the last month or so... Netflight has not been updated since March last year.

 

 

 

Hope that helps.

thanks for the reply, i had removed netflight but gave it another try.

now I can get in and there is no crash anymore.

so  the culprit was not gizmo but probebly a wrong installation.

 

b.t.w do you know how i can reach netflight?

I discribed two weeks ago but dont hear anything.

furthermore do you know if there will be an update for the plug/

Hi Pilots,

                   I just purchaed  x-plane 9.  I must have missed x-plane 10 somehow ?   Ive flown on vatsim/vatpac years ago and i found it a major efort to finally get online but it was worth the trouble. I have forgotten exactlyhow i finally managed it .

 

Could someone nplease npoint me to a link as to how to get x-plane 9 online with vatsim ?  Ive clocked up dozens of hours on real aircraft without having a licence. even had a jet fighter retired pilot teach me how to fly and navigate a cessna. I actually liked liked online flying as much fun as the real thing :-)

 

I am st6ill registered on avsim or vatpac and know i have to download xsquarkbox , but thats all i know.

 

So if anyone can supply a link for me to get me flying I would be in your debt.

 

Sincerly, Mick Lynch.

why x-plane 9? I would try to install xplane 10.25.3 and 64 bits and then install 64bits squawbox.

after this you can download all hd 2 scenery for free and up you go.

xsquawbox works fine.

You could go ivao and then just fly vfr, if you stay in E of G airspace there is not much talk to atc. And then use am unused ts channel for chat with others
