  1. Thank you Dave, that did the trick. I looked througout the whole "Config" section of P2A, and overlooked the volume settings in the radio dialogue.
  2. I'm also experiencing the problem with chatter sounds being much too quiet. I've installed your chatter files into P2A. I can hear them, but as soon as I start my engines in X-Plane I can only hear the synthetic ATC voices from P2A but not the chatter sounds. Sorry but I don't understand what you meant with "increase the volume on the radio in Pilot 2 ATC". I can only find volume controls for the individual ATC voices (that doesn't do anything with background sounds) , and additionally a volume control on the "Sound" tab, but that would only be useful if I would use a single chatter sound file. This volume control has no effect if I use the "Controller Folders" option on this tab. The only (uncomfortable) solution I found is to make X-Plane much quiter (using x-plane sound settings or windows sound mixer), lower the volumes of all synthetic ATC voices from pilot2atc to around 10%, and turn up the vloume on my external Amplifier. Of course it would be better if I could raise the volume of the ATC Chatter instead of lowering the volume of everything else.

    Any chance to start ATC in mid flight?

    Thank you Dave for your immediate and great support. I highly appreciate that Pilot2ATC is still under development and so well maintained. I tried Pilot2ATC a year ago for the first time, and at that point I thought it would be an abandoned project. Also as an european pilot the ATC phraseology used in the program haven't convinced me. Now, one year later, after I've got a new PC, I gave it a second try, and while the phraseology is still an issue, everything else seems to work much better and the program feels much more mature then a year ago. I gladly purchased my P2A license this time. Thanks again for your hard work on the program and your great support.
  4. Yesterday I tried the EGLL->EGPH example flight from the manual. Shortly before TOD Pilot2ATC crashed (the "program not respondinding", white screen, blue circle type of crash, Version 2.5.2) . So I terminated the Pilot2ATC process, reloaded and filed my flightplan again, and Pilot2ATC recognized the next waypoint in my flightplan correctly. But the last center frequency I was assigned to before the crash didn't work anymore, and I had no idea on how to reconnect to ATC. Is this type of in flight reconnect to ATC possible somehow?
  5. On short flights I often use the "direct to" function of the autopilot. In the Phenom one may activate this function either on the the PFD or the ND. I have no problem setting a desired waypoint using the PFD and to "activate" it. But on the ND after selecting the waypoint, I can't activate it. After I selected the waypoint, I click on the "Enter" button, but the "activate" message doesn't appear, and the window for selecting a waypoint simply closes without setting the route to the next waypoint. Because I'm often using an Oculus Rift, I don't like fiddling around with the outer and inner knobs of the PFD and ND to select a waypoint, and would rather like to use the keypad to enter waypoints, which is much faster but unfortunately only works when setting the waypoints on the ND. Is this a knows issue, or am I doing something wrong when selecting "direct to" waypoints with the ND? There's also another issue with the "direct to" function: When I select a waypoint where the name is not unique, the "Duplicate Waypoints" dialogue openes, but no selectable options are displayed. Therefore waypoints with duplicate names can't get selected at all (tested on ND)
