  1. Press Ctrl-T to toggle "Always on Top". You may need to also resize the window if you had it full-screen.
  2. In theory, I could create a server application that runs on the same PC as Flight, and a tablet application that connects to the server and displays the data. In reality, I'm not sure that there would be enough demand to justify the time it would take to implement. I'll have a think about it though. There may be a less time-consuming method, perhaps using a browser-based solution.
  3. Version 1.3 released (same download link as above). Updated to use latest version of Flight Toolkit (v1.1.31), and minor fix to magnetic variation handling.
  4. Version 1.2 released (same download link as above). The only change is to use Bing Maps rather than Open Streetmaps, due to changes in the Open Streetmaps terms of use.
  5. Now that the new version of the Flight Toolkit is available, I have released version 1.1 of Flight Monitor at https://www.dropbox....ExKpzsn4Qa?dl=0 Change notes: 1. Updated to use v1.1.28 of the Flight Toolkit. 2. Changed from Google Maps to Open Streetmaps (better coverage of airports - can now search for ICAO codes). 3. Added automatic connection/disconnection to Flight. 4. Several minor UI changes (including Options button now located on the left, not right side). 5. Improved incorporation of magnetic variance to headings. 6. Added flight parameters display to top of window (toggleable). 7. Added "always on top" functionality (available from options menu). 8. Added switch between Flight and Flight Monitor hotkey (Ctrl-Alt-F). 9. Added global hotkeys for almost all Flight Monitor commands (add Alt to the shortcut listed on the Options menu). 10. Fixed FSX flight plan import. The new global shortcut keys work even when Flight has focus. Regards, Mike
  6. No problem, glad it's working for you now. BTW, me putting 1.1.12 was a typo - I did mean 1.1.22! Sorry about the FSX flightplan problem - I don't tend to use them myself, so it was a bit of an afterthought. I'll have another look at that. My main problem with them is that they contain a lot less information than Plan-G ones do. There will be a new release in the not too distant future with a few new features (flightplan following and some GPS-like displays at least). Other suggestions welcomed. We'd need to get Stonelance to look at the connectivity to make it work across a network - I'm just using what he provides.
  7. AirWayMan, I have now tested on both Windows 10 Home 32-bit and Windows 10 Professional 64-bit. In both cases, I get no errors, and FlightMonitor runs correctly. Could you confirm the following, please: 1. You have the latest version of FlightToolkit installed (v1.1.12). 2. SimDataEditor.exe (part of the toolkit) runs without errors? The windows event logs are available by pressing the Windows key and R, and then entering eventvwr.exe into the "Run" window that will appear. Click on "Windows Logs" then "Application" and look in the list of events for lines that start with "Error" and have a "Source" of ".NET runtime. Click that line, and post a copy of the message in the "General" tab at the bottom of the window... it may look something like this... Application: FlightMonitor.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception. Exception Info: System.IO.FileNotFoundException at FlightMonitor.frmMain..ctor() at FlightMonitor.Program.Main()
  8. Sorry about that AirWayMan. Was there any error message before it exited? There may be one hidden in the Windows Application event log. I haven't tested on Windows 10 yet, I'm afraid. If Flight Toolkit is installed in your program files folder, then you may need to run Flight Monitor as administrator.
  9. Flight Monitor is a moving map application for use with Microsoft Flight (not FS9 or FSX). I created this after being frustrated by the limitations of FSWidget's "GMap for Flight". The things I wanted to add were: 1. Allow the window to be resized or maximised. 2. Don't require Flight to be in Hawaii or Alaska on startup. 3. Don't require the HUD displayed to be displayed in Flight to show the aircraft heading. 4. Allow loading of flight plans created using Plan-G. 5. Add "direct-to" functionality. Although I created Flight Monitor primarily for my own use, since it builds on stonelance's Flight Toolkit and may be of use to the diminishing Flight community, I thought I would make it available for all to play with! Thanks to stonelance for the Flight Toolkit, and for the help he gave me when I first started this project. If you'd like to take a look, I have made it available for all (I hope!) at: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/dso3u20i1n2tchz/AAAp-iVyX_eAMCfExKpzsn4Qa?dl=0 Note: Flight Monitor requires the Flight Toolkit by stonelance (http://flighttoolkit.com), and also the .NET framework 4.6.1 or later, available from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=49981 It also requires an internet connection to download the maps.
