  1. Hi, 1. View|Aircraft 2. Select your friend's aircraft. 3. Click Enter Cockpit. Your friend will also need to do this: 1. View|Users 2. Select you 3. Click Permissions. 4. Enable Allow Shared Cockpit. Peter
  2. Hi Brian, Quite a few have JoinFS hubs running and will show up in the hub list window within JoinFS itself. Some of them have their website shown on that list. Peter
  3. Hi Papyuno, Yes, that sounds very similar to how JoinFS works. You just press the overdub button to start recording new aircraft over the existing recording. Re: FS2. I actually tried contacting the developer about injecting and controlling aircraft in the simulator with third party add-ons but I never got a reply back. So I think it may be quite a while before JoinFS supports FS2. However, I am currently looking into supporting X-Plane, which means that JoinFS will be cross platform across the most used simulators with at least 90% (guesstimate) of users. Best regards, Peter
  4. Shared cockpit currently works well for smaller aircraft. I've not tried airliners myself, but I've not seen anyone reporting problems or making requests for airliner functions, however, I think that a lot of the aircraft systems will not be shared correctly, such as APU switches, just off the top of my head. There are still some variables in the simulator that I'm not carrying across at the moment, but I'll be adding them at some point. Whether supporting all of those known variables will still be enough for properly doing a shared cockpit of a deep sim aircraft, I'm not sure. I think I restricted the hand over to only one person having direct control. When I first implemented it I allowed multiple pilots having control, but there were some issues with that. It might be something that I could look at again. Peter
  5. Hi Frank, 1. Good idea. I'll start adding that to the log. 2. I decided to remove as much clutter as possible from the main window with the aim of making it much more obvious and easy to use especially for new users. So the recorder buttons are no longer there because they are on the View|Recorder window. And the user information is on the View|Users window (actually I forgot to add the number of users to the bottom of that window, but it will be in the next version). Having said that, actually I might try putting it back on the main window tucked away in the bottom right of the status bar. 3. Great! I was in an 12 pilot / 5 ATC session yesterday and it was just a simple click or two for everyone to get connected for a two hour flying session, no issues. Must be doing something right. Peter
  6. You can already share your cockpit to unlimited passengers. In the next version, you can share the cockpit controls in three categories, surface, engines and other, which allows for a multi-role shared cockpit. Peter
  7. Hi Ron, I would check the settings in JoinFS and make sure you don't have ATC Mode enabled as this also causes the AI to switch on and that can cause these kinds of problems. If that's not it, then check the aircraft list and make sure that your wind data is the same. If it isn't then you can all copy the weather from one person. Hope that helps, Peter
  8. Website is back up. :smile: But the support forum is still not up properly.
  9. Seems to me like they're in a pickle. Latest from the web host: ------------------------- Created: 17 January 2017, 13:25 Last Updated: 17 January 2017, 18:19 Some customer websites are currently not working. Our system engineers have identified the problem and are working on rectifying the issue. The team have restored service to some sites and are working to complete for the remaining sites, we expect all sites to be fully online and operational by the end of the day. All websites will return to normal working status, no content has been lost. We will keep this status page updated with further information. 123 Reg is very sorry for the downtime and thank you for your patience and understanding. Update : our teams are continuing work on bringing the remaining sites back online. Update : we expect the majority of the remaining sites to be online by 18:30 and will continue working until all sites are online. Update : fixes are continuing to roll-out and more sites are online, we are still working towards the 18:30 time for the majority of sites though some will take longer. Update : fixes are continuing, but we have experienced issues which are delaying some of the bulk fixes for the 18:30 deadline. However, the team will continue working throughout the evening and into the night until all sites are back online. ---------------------
  10. Hi Brian, Yes, the website appears to be down. Out of my control I'm afraid. JoinFS is supposed to continue running even if it can't check the version, but unfortunately it looks like there is a bug in the latest version that prevents it from carrying on. I'll get that fixed. Hopefully the website will return depending on the website provider of course. Latest update from the web provider: -------------------- Created: 17 January 2017, 13:25 Last Updated: 17 January 2017, 13:26 We have received reports that a number of websites are currently showing a 503 error. Our teams are investigating this issue with the highest priority. Our System Administration team are currently working on this and we expect to have normal service resumed shortly. We apologise for the inconvenience caused -------------------- Peter
  11. I could do, but do you prefer that to the new Bookmarks window where you can see which bookmarks are currently live and then click Join in that window? Peter
  12. Glad it's sorted out, Ron. Yes, you can run JoinFS as a hub on a server without FSX, it just needs SimConnect. But that's a good question though. SimConnect is only required because it's sort of hard wired in at the moment. I think I should be able to allow it to run without SimConnect. I'll look into it. Peter
  13. Hi Ron, That's unusual since 1.1.2 was a fairly minor update. Nothing has changed regarding the installation of files. Have you, by any chance, uninstalled SimConnect at all. I can suggest re-installing SimConnect 10.0.61259.0. This comes with your simulator and is usually installed automatically, but you can easily reinstall it. For example, with FSX: Steam, it can be found here "(FSX)\SDK\Core Utilities Kit\SimConnect SDK\LegacyInterfaces\FSX-XPACK\SimConnect.msi" Hope that helps. Peter
  14. Hello again, the latest test version 1.1.2 now supports command line options including '-create' which does as you have requested. http://pmem.uk/joinfs/development.html Thanks, Peter
