Hi everone,

I was searching for a sub-forum for ProAtc to post my problem, but couldnt find it so excuse me if I am posting in the wrong place.

 

My problem is that ProatcX sometimes gives me wrong instructions, like maintaining a high altitude during approach or sometimes follow different headings than the original route.

latest example was today in route from LHBP to LOWI, instructions were to maintain 13000ft until almost 15 nm from runway!

needless to say...i crashed :)

 

Was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

 

Thanks for your feedback!

Greetings,

 

even i have a similar issue.

pro atc x never gives permission to select different runway or an approach or star. I have experienced this in all default fsx airport. Using default afcad . Does any1 experience same issue?

Did you actually read this nearly year old thread? The part where Pete gives a link to the ProATC forum is particularly useful.

This is a known bug in the current release. It used to work but is now broken.

This will be fixed in the next update due around november 2017, not long to wait folks.

Yes I think you almost correct, it should be around November, year unknown however.

Actually, there's an announcement on the Forum that a release will be made on 19th March which fixes all known issues.

Of course, I am away on holiday then! Typical! ;-)

Oh, one thing: it does say "Monday 19th March" , and the next Monday 19th March is in 2018!

But I assume he really means Monday 20th March.

The update was released today. The problem with requesting a different star/approach/runway is supposed to be fixed, but I haven't had a chance to test it out yet.

The only thing I tested was the ability to request a different STAR or runway. It worked. The only other significant problem I'm aware of is that the program sometimes does not recognize when you reach a way point in the flight plan. This happens randomly so I can't test for it...just have to wait and see if it still happens. All in all I like ProATC-X better than PF3 or Radar Contact, both of which I used for years.

I personally think Pro ATC X is the best AI ATC program, for a variety of reasons, and I do have/have had most of the other ones. But if you are considering it, have a look at some reviews of Pro ATC X as well as ones for others such as Radar Contact, Vox ATC etc. You might prefer the features of those.

Has any one successfullu networked proatx on a client machine?

tried to map the drive on client which I did but when you go into to point to p3dv3..can't choose mapped drive. I have windows 10. I can do it that way but it can't find makerunway exe. and I can't get the keyboard 1 or 7 to popup on client machine?  The ai tool in the sdk connects to p3dv3 so simconnect is not an issue..don't think...has anyone know how to show keyboard on server..maybe thru fsuipc..I have widefs and it connects ok.. Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Yes, I use it this way.

The main thing to do is run MakeRunways from your FS folder on your FS PC, whenever you change scenery or get new AIRAC data, then in ProATC/C import new AIRAC without using the Read Scenery button. Assuming you've already given ProATC/X the pasth to your FS folder (shared), it will read the MakeRunways data you've already created.

The biggest problem PROATC had prior to this latest update, was it's inability to handle high crosswinds like when in the jetstream. It would not account for them or couldn't keep up causing unnecessary vectoring. The previous update was the worse, when even though the PATC flightplan menu showed the correct active waypoint which was straight ahead of me PATC wanted to vector me up to 180 degrees in the opposite direction. Every time I reported it support always denied it was there issue, blaming it on the PMDG NGX or T7 (which was the planes I was using). Apparently though they must have finally found the problem, since it seems to be completely working properly now in this latest update, which now makes each flight more enjoyable and seamless.

Thanks Pete..was wondering if there is some way to have the Menu for Proatc to show up on the server. I know in a network. the . menu doesn't show up on either?  I can hit keys but have no ideas what it shows etc etc etc.

Thanks Pete,

Did you have it working on the same PC before, with the menu visible in the Sim? If so we know that end of SimConnect is set up ok.

Have you set up SimConnect on the networked PC? Does ProATC/X connect?

Hey Pete..after the last post from Glynn...I was encouraged to try it again after 2 days of not getting proatcx and the popup menu.. I uninstall proatcx off main machine and put it back on the client. The only thing different...When I installed it.. I had mapped p3dv3 from server to client and when I would browse on the path folder and proatcx or windows 10 would never see the mapped drive..But today for some quirk of windows 10..it saw the mapped drive and when I finished..Much to my delight on the server where p3dv3 is installed..the menu came up like a charm. I did change the 0 on the key menu to 7...some issue maybe with p3dv3 and the number 0 in Proatcx.. Anyway it seems to be working great and the co-pilot changes the suawk for me where it was not doing it before.   I use Widefs as needed for other programs and the ai traffic exe connects to p3dv3 ok so the only thing I did different today was getting windows 10 to see the mapped drives as oppose to go to network and drilling down to the p3dv3 folder.

Thanks Pete,

Bob M.
