Pilot2ATC on Networked Machine

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I tested it out last night and it worked great.  The only thing I had an issue with is, the sound was very low from my second machine to my USB headset.  I had to really turn down my P3D sound to hear P2Atc 😞  The sound levels were all cranked on the second machine; maybe it was an oddity.  I will test it more this weekend.

But, if I can get it all working with good sound levels on both, I will be a very happy person.  The one thing I will have to do is train my voice a LOT more, because I was having problems getting the Ground Controller to hear my readback properly  😞  Mind you, I have done very little voice training.

Bruce,

The Networked Computer section of the User's Guide has details on one way to set up Multiplicity for sound.

Dave, Dave, Dave......that would imply I read it  😉

I am in the process of redoing a bunch of FS stuff on my network, due to my recent interest in P3D, of late.  And the fact that my second computer died and had to be replaced.  I also remembered how I liked the look of Pilot2ATC from when I bought it ages ago.

I am giving it a second look now, because I kind of gave up on it way back.  I found that my RC4.3 was just too easy to load up and go and had very few issues with it.  Plus I knew I would have to do some work and study to use Pilot2ATC.  😉

BUT, now that I am using Pilot2ATC and am moving on from RC4, due to it being so old, I am going full throttle into Pilot2ATC.   On that note, I am reading the manual right NOW  🙂 It is quite good and very easy to follow.  I had read it before, but I just didn't have the time to give it my full attention.  Now it is getting my full attention!  

And you are right, I am finding everything I need, such as:  "Destination Only Taxi Readbacks.........It simplifies the readback and can reduce frustration." 😄   It really IS a fantastic manual!!!

But I DO need to still train my voice a bit, I think 😉

Ok, everything is working great with the Pilot2ATC program over the network now; I couldn't be happier :) 

And Dave, I was just trying to be humorous with the "that would imply I read it" part.  You hadn't commented back, so I wanted to make sure I hadn't offended you.  I had read it before.  I just needed to read it a second time to make sense of everything again; it is a fairly deep program....which is great!!

Multiplicity has taken care of all the issues with running over the network for me.  It truly is perfect to work with Pilot2ATC over the network, with the ability to see everything of Pilot2ATC's map, freq, fpl etc., on a second computers monitor.  I feel a bit dumb that I had not noticed that in the manual the first time I read it, months and months ago :)

I have still NOT really trained my voice yet, but I will.  Although the SayIt feature works really, really good, if/when you need it.  But you really need to take the time to train your voice, if you want to be exclusive voice comms all the time.  Plus, it is nice to see some of the voice scripts people have created for Pilot2ATC

So, I have finally moved away from Radar Contact 4.3 now.  I have also decided to move away from PF3 for now, as well.  Once you get used to switching to Pilot2ATC and take the time to read the manual once or twice and spend the time to set up the config file the way it needs to be; then it really is a very nice program for ATC for FSX/P3D.  It will be all I will use now, I believe.  Although, I enjoyed both PF3 and RC4, in their own right.

Glad you got it working.  I did get the humor...was just waiting to hear how you did.😊

Thanks for sharing your results!
