Hello,

I am trying to determine if the whazzup.txt file that is available from my JoinFS hub can be used to display AI aircraft on LNM.

I can enter the URL and click on Test with positive results but see nothing change on the display. Perhaps I am missing an important setting or not understanding what this is supposed to do ?

Thanks for any help offered !

Hi Darryl,

Try to switch between VATSIM and IVAO format. There are differences.

If all else fails send me the whazzup.txt file or the URL if it is public by mail.

Also make sure that AI/multiplayer aircraft are not disable in the map display.

Also answered in the PM. You have to use the http://PRIVATE_SITE/whazzup.txt address in the LNM options. That is the CSV like text format file which contains all the aircraft information.

I tested this now and it is working fine. You should use the VATSIM format which also gives you an "on ground" indication. Note that aircraft on ground are shown only when zoomed in close enough.

Alex,

Thanks so much for your help.

I made the change and it is working like a charm.

Obviously my original interpretation of the required URL did not conclude that it needed a direct link to the whazzup file as the "test" button seemed to like what I had done.

Glad it is working now. I'll check if I can make the test a bit more picky.
