Now that the upcoming release of MSFS has been announced, can you already say something about if, when and to what extent MCE will be available for MSFS?

Since we develop everything we need in house, and not relying on FSUIPC or other guys consultants or whatever you want to call them, unless Microsoft decides not to allow third party devs to load their dlls in the sim, we are going to extend support to MSFS 2020.

And unlike some greedy third party devs out there, we won't make a meal of it either.

It will be just another MSFS based sim supported in Multi Crew Ultimate Edition.

The few months needed to adapt it to MSFS 2020 is nothing compared to the 12+ years of development sunk into this so far.

Only thing we're not sure about is the handling of Native ATC, as this is done outside any SDK and needs to be worked out for each sim.

I'm not talking about sending keys (or simulated mouse clicks) to select items in menus, but more about the ability to work out what's displayed in ATC window at any given time so that it can be reliable.

Maybe 2 to 3 months after MSFS 2020 official release if one has to give a rough estimate.

Gerald, honestly speaking, there could be nothing else expected by the ones who know (and even love) your produkt and your attached support. 😉

Great to hear. I would dearly miss ramp agent Dieter. And of course the copilot not understanding when I say „zero“.

No, jokes aside. I just reinstalled MCE for fsx. Can‘t do without it anymore.

This may be one of the best answers i have seen, a developer who is ready to stand up and say their intent and the possible road blocks.  And your history shows this to be par for the course.   

I use the Xplane version daily, but i will be first in line to grab the 2020 compatible version, even though it will cost me some $$, its worth it.
