MCE goes classic and supports CS 707 with simulated flight engineer

Recommended Posts

Attention all MCE users

 

You are kindly invited to download and install the latest version from our website

 

http://www.multicrewxp.com/Downloads.html

 

There is no separate Demo and registered package anymore.

 

What’s new in this version...

 

MCE now officially  Prepar3D V2 ready, not just installer. ATC and GSX which were broken earlier have now been restored.

It adds full support for CS 707 classic, with simulated flight engineer.

 

Has improved ATC PTT functionality which indirectly improves the ATC feature.

 

Improved interaction with ground mechanic.

 

Fixes a few bugs reported on this forum

 

Adds 2 new ramp agents, Jane and Ray (let’s welcome them).

 

And the icing on the cake, MCE now displays the remaining FS virtual memory on-screen alongside the spoken command. And  without hurting performance, since remaining VAS is only computed once when you speak something and not constantly at  pre-set intervals. It will help you decide what to do should that value dip under 250 MB, and better understand the impact of various add-ons and FS settings.

 

“Control speedbird 123 request deviation right of track to avoid built-up area” (no, not the usual Cumulo-nimbus) :P 

 

Let the VAS games begin...

 

 

 

PS: Note to registered users. When done with installation, run the application wizard to ensure the CS707 new files are copied to the relevant folders.

Hi Gerald,

 

Couple of questions;-

 

Have you included Mechanics Jane and Ray on the MCE front page for download?

 

Also, do we still click on "Download MCE Demo" for the new inclusive Demo and Registered Package?

 

Cheers

 

David

Nice, simulated Flight Engineer! Now I have even a better reason to fly the CS 707.

Thank you!

Ramp agents recordings aren't separate downloads.

 

They are all embedded in "Announce.dll" which gets updated with every release. Ray will pop-in in Ireland, while Jane will meet you in Switzerland or down under. Still looking for Oz ramp agents.

 

Until further notice, the same Demo package should be used by registered users too.

You're welcome.

 

Enjoy the Demo.

 

Don't forget to download the additional voice packs. There are 7 co-pilot voice packs, and you can assign them either to FO or F/E via the <Command> tab of the user interface

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. A specific file should have been automatically copied to \My Documents\VoxKey\Profiles folder. The app wizard is expected to do that.

 

Here is the workaround

 

Go to \Multi Crew Experience\Support\ folder and copy file "Prepar3D demo.vkp"

 

Paste the file to  \My Documents\VoxKey\Profiles\  folder

 

 

The profile is only relevant if you add custom commands to it. Otherwise you can safely ignore that message. All it's telling you, is that in case you have made custom commands intended to be convertd to key strokes to be sent to the sim, it won't happen because the profile is missing. You will still be able to interact with FO and flight engineer.

I'm confused by this.  I see for download Mechanics Clive, Sten, Lorna, David, and Andrew.  I don't have MCE up right this second, but I thought we had to explicitely tell MCE which Mechanic to use, just like we do with the Co Pilot and the Engineer.  Are you saying that these new guys, Jane and Ray, who are part of Announce.dll, and who we don't need to download, will override our chosen mechanic on a regional basis, as appropriate?

You may not be aware of this if you aren't using GSX or AES.

 

MCE provides different ramp agents depending on the ICAO ID of the airport you start your flight from.

 

You talk to ramp agents and they coordinate with GSX or AES. No need to worry about opening and closing doors. It's all done automatically.

 

Nothing has changed regarding other voice packs (FO, mMechanics and Pursers).

Wil get back to you on that next week.

 

Luckily this won't prevent you using the ATC feature.

I was confusing "Mechanics" with Ramp Agents.

 

Ray and Jane will be the "Rampies" in my next video.

 

So if I fly from Dublin to Zurich, I should get Ray at Dublin and Jane at Zurich? B)

 

Best Regards

David

You should get "Ray" at Dublin or any airport whose ICAO ID starts with EI**

 

Since we don't handle GSX arrival right now (at least not the follow me bit), I don't expect Jane to be heard, unless you start a new flight from Zurich

Thanks again Gerald,

 

I'll experiment.  If, after taxi to gate and shutdown, I say at Zurich  "Jane request De Boarding" she may show up!

 

I think I got an Italian sounding guy before! Great fun wondering who you will meet  next :lol:.

 

Cheers

Now, minor issue confirmed.

 

To display the correct flight plan, ignore the first prompt to provide the flight plan path. When the second prompt appears, provide it, and the UI should update.

That's right, you will get that message when you close down dialog boxes. If you click "yes" it should stop... until you open a dialog box and close it at which point MCE will assume you may have changed flight plan and wants confirmation you're still on the previous one, if you see what I mean.

 

If the dialog boxes annoy you, you can simply add this option to mce.ini and there will be no prompt for flight plan.

 

Under [ATC] section add

 

IgnoreFlightPlan=1

 

As said before, with native ATC, flight plan display is almost cosmetic. What matters is the ability to interact with ATC via voice. I mean stuff going on in ATC options.

Don't work for me. I have FSX+MCE in full screen. The pop up windows asks again and again where the FP is.
