Pilot2ATC on Networked Machine

Recommended Posts

Thanks Dave. Generally, I prefer to keep ATC and the aircraft sim (e.g. P3D, XP11) together on the same PC. Will I be able to accomplish the following two things:

1.) Ability to completely minimize P2A UI window with the sim on top and toggle P2A UI window as needed with alt+tab; 

2.) Ability to change radio frequencies using the aircraft VC. 

If I'm able to accomplish the above two items, I'd like to give it a try on a single PC. If that setup doesn't work for me, will I be able to un-install and re-install on a client PC with the same license? I've tried the demo in the past but lost track of time, so either way I'll just do a regular purchase. 

Thanks again / Les Parson

Dave would multiplicity allow you to use your mic on your main machine to communicate with P2A on the second machine?  

Thanks.

BTW my headset is a USB headset which is connected to the main PC.  I have a 3.5mm audio cable running from the speaker output of my second computer (P2A) to the line in on my P3D computer so I can hear output from my P2A through the headset on the P3D computer.  What I have never been able to figure out is how to get the audio from the usb headset connected to the P3D computer to be sent to the P2A second PC.

Les,

You should be able to do both.  You may also be able to use the Minimize HotKey in P2A instead of having to use the Alt-Tab.  It depends on how your SIM is set up.

Hilkiah,

As far as I know that does not work because Multiplicity only handles Audio output, so it cannot send the Mic audio input to the networked machine.  That's why you must plug your headset into the P2A machine.

I'm attempting to install P2A on remote PC using XP11. I have purchased  Multiplicity and SPAD-Next but things are not going well. The following from the SPAD-Next forum has me confused with item #5 on Remote PC. I'm unable to locate the Remote Joystick Client and a search of SPAD-Next forum did not help. I'm just not understanding SPAD very well and haven't been able to locate any useful YouTube videos. Any assistance will be appreciated. 

AD.next >= 0.9.5.55 required.

* Remoteservice (Settings->Application->Expert must be ON)

On Remote PC :

  1. Download and install https://github.com/shauleiz/vJoy/releases/latest (the installer)
  2. Start "C:\Program Files\vJoy\x64\vJoyConf.exe" and configure joystick #1 to have only buttons (as many as you need)
  3. Configure the program to receive the button presses for Virtual Joystick Device 1
  4. Download attached file and install on Remote PC
  5. Start "C:\Program Files (x86)\SPAD.neXt RemoteJoystick Client\RemoteJoystick.exe" if you did not select "Start .." in install
  6. Enter IP and port of SPAD.neXt computer. (port is seen at Settings->Application->Expert in SPAD.neXt. Default: 8181)


On SPAD.neXt PC:

  1. Start SpAD.neXt
  2. go to the Button you want to remotely trigger that joystick.
  3. if Button is not on a native joystick skip next 2 steps
  4. Configure Button (Click 'configure') to be a "Simple Pushbutton"
  5. Restart SPAD.neXt
  6. Add "Press" Event
  7. Add "Execute Command" Action
  8. Select "COMMAND_SPAD_NEXT.REMOTE" (forgot to add string for it)
  9. Enter "BUTTON.BUTTONNUMBER.PRESS" eg BUTTON.1.PRESS
  10. Close Event-configuration
  11. Add "Release" Event
  12. Add "Execute Command" Action
  13. Select "COMMAND_SPAD_NEXT.REMOTE" (forgot to add string for it)
  14. Enter "BUTTON.BUTTONNUMBER.RELEASE" eg BUTTON.1.RELEASE
  15. Close Event configuration


On Remote Client:
Click on "Connect"

Have fun!
If any problem ocours please send %LOCALAPPDATA%\SPAD.neXt\Tools\logs\RemoteJoystick.log from Remote PC to support@spadnext.com

Please report if it works as expected.

You should follow the instructions in the P2A User's Guide starting on page 154.  You'll notice that vJoy is not used at all.

Hi

I was just reading this and wondering. Are you running spad.next on your main pc or your networked pc. If you run Spad.next on your networked pc all of your flight controls can then be attached to your networked pc. This means that you dont need vJoy etc. Spad.next will use fsuipc,simmconect or Lvars on you networked pc. As far as sound goes Multiplicity is great on networked machines but I stopped using the audio section from that a couple of years ago but still use everything else multiplicity offers. There is a donation ware software called Voicemeeter Banna that is brilliant for audio on you computer and sim. I use 2 computers and 4 soundcards to run P3d and voicemeeter banana controls them all. It can send the main audio to you main speakers and send ATC audio to your networked machine. I use programes on the networked machine where the main audio is sent back to the main pcs speakers but Pilot2ATC for example is on the networked pc.

I have SPAD.Next only on the server. I'll try it on the client as well. Thanks for the tip.
