  1. Hi John, Thanks for your reply. Well, I may be getting older and brain function is diminishing but, I could have sworn I had the remote panels working across the network in P3DV4.4 I didn't get around to it in V4.5 and now I am running V5 and wanted to set it up again.. Certainly there was a section in the manual about how to set it up. Oh well, that's that then........ Guess I'll have to put up with having the VOX window on the screen, which is not ideal (I have a home cockpit). I will try to find the manual with the detail in though since I'd like to have a go at setting it up. Thanks and regards Dave
  2. Hi, Does anyone have the up to date manual for VOXATC. I need the version that has the extra section about remote control, pages 81 - 83 I think, with information about setting up VOXATC across a network? I only need this section. The manual on the VOXATC website is not the latest version. Thanks very much Dave
  3. Hi, I have found the problem and now VOXATC is working. Although the installer inserted the Windows Titles information in the Panel.cfg, the window detail was missing i.e. ////<VoxATC [Window01] visible=1 size_mm=400,200 window_size=0.3,0.3 window_pos=0.05,0.05 background_color=0,0,0 ident=14077 zorder=5 alpha_blend=0.65 gauge00=VAGauge!VoxATCPrompt,0,0 ////>VoxATC I'm not sure how this can happen. I did rerun the installer and still this information was not added. All I've got to do now is get the flight planner in P3DV5 to work, it keeps crashing the sim....... Thanks for trying to help. Dave NB I would mark the topic as solved but ca't seem to edit the title.
  4. Hi Jay, I tried a few things yesterday i.e. checking gauges were in place, panel cfg entries, repaired VOXATC installation, reinstalled simconnect etc., but still no joy. I did copy across my procedures from version 4 to 5, do you think this could be a problem? I've only just though about this. I'll remove them and try again. I manually started voxatc server and a DOS type screen appeared with no entries and VOX did not run. Here is the log (I can't seem to attach files). There's nothing in there of note, so far as I can tell. I will check Simconnect logs too.

  5.

Dave
  6. Once gain Jay sorry for the slow reply. Yes, I do have FSUIPC6 and the legacy SimConnect dll installed. I dis also install the V5 SDK. The gauge is installed in V5 and the relevant windows in the panel.cfg. I have not worked the problem as I've been on other things the past couple of weeks but, I did enable the log last night and will look at it later today. At least the indexer works well now; every cloud!! I'll report back re the log. Regards Dave NB (Notify me of replies is definitely ticked but I don't get notifications of replies)
  7. Hi Jay, Sorry for the slow reply, I don't get notifications of replies for some reason. The programme runs when manually started. I can hear the 'test' 'test' sequence, but it does not connect to P3D and does not start with P3D. No fatal errors. I did not try VOXATC for P3DV4 with V5, all the work arounds and tweaks were not for me! Anyway, I will check the permissions, I had not thought of that. Thanks a lot Dave
  8. Hi, I have uninstalled VOXATC for P3DV4.5 and indeed P3DV4.5 (decided not to run them side by side). I have installed VOXATC for V5, the installation went well and the indexer ran without a hitch. I only use one aircraft and the panel.cfg has the VOXATC windows installed and the gauges are also installed. I have not tweaked any settings I've only ported over the procedures and set up the programme as it has always been setup (voices, affinity, no FO etc.). VOXATC server does not initialise with P3DV5. If I click the server exe file it opens and works. Can someone please give me some guidance on troubleshooting this or just tell me what I've forgotten, bearing in mind I have not reinstalled VOXATC for years. I did read the manual BTW. Thanks Dave
  9. Hi, On the back of this news I have just purchased P3D V5, this is very good news indeed. Anyway, I have a question; can I have two versions of VOXATC installed on one PC? I have installed a new SSD for P3D V5 and addons and intend to slowly install it whilst keeping V4.5 up and running, eventually making a full change over. Thanks Dave
  10. Hi Jay, Yes indeed and they have helped me, but I do use a process that now seems to work every time. I can understand where you're coming from but, I have to say the programme works well for me. This thread is about voluntary tweaking which is probably not recommended. The only regular problem I have is the indexer stalling (see above). It would be great if further development could take place, but that's getting more and more unlikely it seems. I'll tweak the traffic a bit more and report back. Regards Dave
  11. Hi John & Jay, Okay, so to clarify the descent is set at 2.5, not sure if this relates to angle of decent, I think probably not. But anyway, it does seem to be just right for me and the flights I carryout. I have tested this extensively and I always get the descent instruction at a sensible point. With regard to traffic; the script in the VAsettings.xml was indeed wrong i.e. not spelt correctly. I have corrected this and set the quantities as follows: <MaxParkedAircraft Value="30" /> <MaxEnrouteAircraft Value="50" /> <MaxActiveTerminalAircraft Value="20" /> This results in far too many aircraft at the airports. On route traffic was also a bit hefty but more realistic than that on the ground. I think this is a case of tweaking about until the traffic looks okay. I did not notice any particular impact on performance at this level. To be honest, I'm not sure what the difference is between 1 & 3! So far as the problem with not enough mix of airlines is concerned, I have solved this.I have to go through a convoluted process to get the indexer to run properly i.e. not stopping at weather themes etc. Basically I had missed out a step of this process and it was this that caused the problem I think. For me, if I can get the volume of traffic sorted, VOXATC is working well.Which I guess is a good thing since development seems to have stopped....... Regards Dave
  12. Hi guys, Once again sorry for the delay replying. I don't get notified when a post is replied to, despite ticking the box. Jay, thanks for your input. I will check this tonight, thanks. It seems to be all of them. This was not the case before. For example I very regularly use Bristol airport, previously there was a good mix of airlines. Last night there was only Ryanair. This is correct. John, The instruction to descend is issued 20 - 40 miles before the TD, as calculated by the aircraft FMC. So, the altitude restrictions etc. are all programmed into the routing so yes hitting the right speeds and levels is no problem. Not really....... This seems to suit all routes that I plan using PFPX, Navigraph and Active Sky weather. Once the route and restrictions are programmed into the FMC the TD is calculated and shown on the navigation display. This can change with the input of decent forecast info. but I have yet to carryout a flight where VOXATC instructs descent after the TD, as I say it's usually 20/40 miles prior whereas previously it could be 80 miles prior. I only fly a home cockpit 737 using Prosim 737 800 for the avionics & flight model so, my performance parameters are the same for each planned flight i.e I'm not using different aircraft or different types (737 800 vs 737 700). Regards Dave
  13. Hi, Yes I am still alive! Sorry have been very busy the past few weeks. I have the descent ratio set at 2.5, after some experimentation. This seems to be the sweet spot for me. I get instructions to descend 10 - 30 miles before TD. Aircraft en route and on the ground is proving trickier. Here's my settings: <MaxParkedAircraft Value="20" /> <MaxEnrouteAircraft Value="80" /> <MaxTerminalAircraft Value="20" /> I have the VOXATC slider at 50%, but there is far too much traffic on the ground and a repetitiveness of airlines i.e. 75% Turkish or Ryan Air or Scandinavian. On route there's still very little. Tegwin told me (a long time ago) that if the slider is at 30% (where I typically have it) then 30% of parking spaces will be taken up. Altering the vasettings.xml does not seem to have altered this. I'll do some more tweaking. Regards Dave
  14. Hi, I have altered the descent ratio parameter but have not fully tested it. However, the waypoints listed in the advanced flight plan extras area still does not include waypoints nearer to the airport. I tested this by leaving the descent ratio as it was, increasing it and looking at the list and decreasing it and looking at the list. Ideally the list should include the IAF by default, in my opinion anyway. I have another idea but not sure if it's possible. I could add the hold point to the waypoint list and then make it the hold point. Not sure if VOXATC will accept this change or not. I suspect it will just ignore it as it did when I added the waypoint to the hold. I'll let you know. I feel certain there's a parameter somewhere that causes the list to be produced as it is. Anyway, in overall terms for me VOAXTAC works well, it's just a shame development seems to have stopped, although I expect for good reason. Regards Dave
