There have been no updates recently, but there is a big update in the works. The slow progress on the update is causing quite a stir in the PRO-ATC forums. I don't use it with My Traffic X or MCE so cannot comment on that, but what I can comment on is I use it and for me it works fine. There are a few bugs but these are supposed to be fixed in the new update.

 

I suggest having a look at the PRO-ATC forums to see if your questions is answered there.

Googling or searching here in the forums would be indeed a good advice.

You'll find pages and pages of unsatisfied users (with a few between which are satisfied to be honest)

 

here or

here

and some more

 

PRO Atc Forum itself isn't a good advice as negative posts or questions get deleted there.

 

 

The current state of the program is a kind of beta with many bugs, but for the money of a professional version.

The devs haven't given any proof that they will continueing work since a year now - just some half baked promises without any further evidence.

 

So, don't tell us we haven't warned you  :P

I suggest you take your time and do a research on all the available add ons as each one has its pros and cons. I prefer PFE, but RC and VOXATC are good too. As for VOXATC I don't advise you getting the latest version which is 6.34 as it is buggy. Get 6.2.

I am one of the satisfied users. I'm not using the same add-ons you are, so I can't comment on that part, but the program usually works as advertised for me.

MCE works with both RC and PFE.

5 has been put on hold indefinitely.

 

And google for the "meatwater" voice packs. This will take care of the robotic voices that come out of the box.

Have you got a link to meatwater? Ok kinda swerving towards RC now do they work with My Traffic X and what about it in general?

The Meatwater voice packs should be right here on Avsim. By the way, RC is the only ATC I use, and it works well with My Traffic X (my current ai) and Ultimate Traffic 2 (my past ai).

I also use pro atcx and it works ok but i would wait until the update. pro atcx has some good things about it but you have to learn alot of work arounds

I'm not a PRO ATC X fan, that's true.

 

But the theory that Mourad is Roy is a bit tooooo abstruse.

The first question would be: why should he do that? The main complaint is, that Mourad is absent from his customers, so why should he waste this value time to be another person and make the paying customers even angrier?

 

Secondly Roys posting times match with Australien times as far as I can see.

Mourad is from Germany.

 

 

 

I can't tell if there will be an update or not in the future.

The current behave of the dev and the support with this buggy software demands a very, very perfect and free update! Then I will probably change my opinion about that "company".

 

Till then, everybody is free to choose if he will spend his money to them ...

I have RC4, VoxATC and ProATC. I no longer use RC4 because of the way it handles departure and arrival procedures.

 

In order to help you make up your mind, here are a couple of videos:

 

First a short video with ProATC:

Then full flights for both:

 

http://www.twitch.tv/virtualfreightdog/b/534014964 (ProATC)

http://www.twitch.tv/virtualfreightdog/b/534935185 (VoxATC)

 

From the full flights, you can compare how both programs sound (voice quality, background chatter) and work (TOD handling and vectoring).

PFE has a fairly complicated setup for each flight. RC4 is very simple and does everything well. The only drawback is that it doesn't have tons of voice sets so that is the only advantage I see that PFE has over RC4. Either way I hope you like whichever program you get. 

 

 

I no longer use RC4 because of the way it handles departure and arrival procedures.

 

Could you explain what the program does that you don't like? I'm curious if I have run into this issue or not.
