Change the binding to another key? Just to test whether there's anything going on with that assigned button.

No issue when I used ATC yesterday.

Nope, same not matter what.

It's not just the ATC window. It's when I bring up any of the windows you can call up such as weight and balance, ATC etc.

Regardless, this prevents the use of ATC as far as I'm concerned. What on earth is causing this, I wonder.

I just flew KLAX-KLAS a few minutes ago. ATC actually cleared me to descend on time, and it gave me all of the proper altitudes all the way through the RNDRZ2 STAR.

Even more astounding is that I used the com2 radio to check ATIS both on the ground at KLAX, and on decent into KLAS and I didn't lose a voice. Usually when I do that I lose the ability to hear either my FO, or the controller. 

And no stutters when I pop up the window.

You can respond to ATC without pulling the window up, just hit the number keys.

I know that fella but if you don't know the number you need to look at the window.

I also don't get any stutters when opening the ATC window, definitely something odd going on there.

Alright so please get me up to date since I haven't been using default ATC since 2020: Does it give you a SID/STAR even if you don't choose one from the flight start menu? Does it change runway and SID/STAR accordingly when wind changes?
What's left that doesn't work in the default ATC?

Yes, I agree and to be honest, it was the straw that broke the camels back and pushed me to move to Windows 11 today. I shut down the flight and decided to bite the bullet.

I had planned to do this when I switched from a 5800X to a 5800X3D last month but got lazy. Today, I decided to just get on with it. Windows is now installed and I'm going through the motions of installing everything.

I will be interested to see if this is still a thing when all is set up again.

I put some beers in the fridge for the long night ahead. See you on the other side 😆

I know, it's a hard life sometimes, isn't it 😆

My first duel is navigating the changes to Windows. Probably going to be my most epic battle of the entire process to be honest. 🙂

The most annoying thing I dislike with the ATC is when they pronounce "four" the number as "for".  

Eg.  "Contact London on one three, f' decimal one five".

Overall it's an improvement - what I've noticed so far:

  • Clearance for next step in climb to cruise altitude now come early, so I didn't have to level off at each stage - I was able to almost climb continuously to cruise altitude.
  • Runway assignments were taken from my Simbrief-created flight plan which I had selected for the prevailing surfaces winds at that time.
  • On one flight the big surprise came in the approach phase and the fact that the wind at shifted about 180 degrees.  Instead of a mild headwind aligned with my initial approach selection I now had a 24 kt. tailwind! This would have created a giant Cluster-***k with the previous ATC iteration.
    • I found the ATC menu now had a choice to change runway, so I chose the opposite runway from my original plan. At this point, however, ATC was still using my original approach and adding "circle to land."
    • I then chose a proper approach for the new runway, ATC accepted it and everything went well - I was able to set down with the 24 kt. headwind.  I hope this is an option that will now be available for all airports - we'll see.

When I had checked ATIS for this airport during descent the "active runway" was proper for the wind change.  However, ATC was still following my original flight plan and approach selection at that point, but for the first time in  my experience I was able to request proper changes.  In the past I would have been able to request a different approach (but they would still have assigned the wrong runway).

How do you use a simbrief plight plan so the sim uses that? I usually fly the fenix and loads into that..what about the sim itself?
