  1. Hi Dave, When flying my last couple flights, the weather at the arrival airport has change, specifically the wind direction. If I click on the P2A WX button it correctly provides the new wind direction and speed. However, ATC still takes me into the original approach runway based on the weather it used when filing the flight plan. Is it possible to manually get P2A to change the approach runway to match wind direction, or is there something that I have not set, which would make it automatically do this. If this is in your manual, then I have missed it as I did try and look for this type of setting before asking yourself. Kind Regards, Ted.
  2. Hi Dave, I just re-initialized my PC running P2A V2.4.0.5. The PC also has Prosim (cockpit) installed. All other flight sim apps including P3DV4 are on another PC. I am using voice commands and find that the ATC Chatter will talk over the top of me when I am transmitting on either comm or even listening to ATIS. This never used to happen and I believe it started with the 64bit version. Has anyone else reported this? Best regards Rob
  3. Hello MCE-Team, I'm new to MCE and like the tool very much. I'm running MCE in FSX:SE and it works like charm. But I have one question regarding the ATC window: In the default FSX ATC window the previous ATC messages (and the ATC messages of other AI aircrafts) are shown. MCE seems to modify the ATC window as I can't see this messages anymore. Is there an option to switch on the message history again? Thanks for your help, Michael

    ATC in Storms

    Hey there! Another quick question I had was for flying G.A. at lower levels. With the default ATC, is there anyway / tricks to request deviation for storms? I once flew through a thunderstorm....never again I know there isn't an option in the menu I have seen, but I didn't know if there were any tricks to going off course or otherwise.

    Use of an ATC Add-on

    I've been doing my research on various ATC add-ons and I was curious how many of you actually fly with ATC. I've been having a lot of fun just learning the ins and outs of PFPX, uploading flight plans into my new jets, loading flight plans directly into the FMS, etc. Then I noticed in Froogle's latest "fully loaded" he wasn't using an ATC (I think his old standby was/is RC). The thought occurred to me that I might not even need an ATC add-on but wanted to get some feedback on if you feel that it significantly enhances the overall sim experience. Thanks for your thoughts!
  6. Hi Dan, I added the ATC-Chatter from X-ATC but still missing some German ATC. So I want to add files from Pro-ATC. I found another topic in which you explain how to add it - but I still don't understand: My Pro-ATC gives me different folders for each country: DE, CH, ES, FR, NL, UK, USA - in there are the aiport-codes or one global folder. So if I use the airport-setting I guess Pilot2ATC won't play chatter at an aiport that is not listed in my folder, right? So do I have to choose the country setting? Thank you! Tim

    In case anyone gets the same or similar problems FSX Trying to fly out of LPMA with VOX there seemed to be a problem - ATC became "stuck" looped and "failed". No FATAL ERROR though but no continuing ATC. Examining the BGL with Airport design editor revealed that "TOWER" and "GROUND" had the same frequency. 118.350. Using ADE I was able to delete the "GROUND" from "LPMA_AFX_OP02.BGL " in FSX\AEROSOFT\MADEIRAXEVOLUTION\SCENERY. All fine now. Oh yes, run scenery indexer again after the change. Anyone want the file if they dont want to mess with ADE just e -mail - //mod edit - email address removed// Cheers John

    Found a possible bug in P3d V4

    I may have discovered a bug. In P3d V4 when you create and load a flight plan into the sim and you are using PMDG 737-800, Lets say you setup the cockpit to a certain config, Then save this as a scenario. After you go back and reload this scenario at another date, it breaks the ATC and the atc stops working. Addons do not seem to be effecting this. The atc bug happens as a result of pmdg and saving a scenario with a flight plan in it. THen reloading it, you will see that atc stops working. Has anyone else seen this?. My work around is to make sure all scenarios with PMDG are not saved with a flight plan in them. It breaks ATC everytime on my system. ANy insight would be helpful. THanks
  9. Hi, I try to use all three together Pilot2ATC+World Traffic 3+ XPlane11 but I cant find the final Solution for it. Is their someone who can help me how the three work together. Thanks Wolfgang
  10. Hello, Did some looking around and I can't find any way of requesting a new forum category for users. I'd like to ask for a forum relating to ATC simulators and perhaps even a specific product for support type questions. What is the best way to pursue this? Thanks, Mike
  11. The controller when giving me the hand-off frequency seems to "round off" the frequency to the first decimal... e.g CYYZ Appr is 124.475, but the controller said 124.4 (and the Co-pilot entered that number). I had to search for CYYZ Approach myself in the P2A app and select, and then it worked. Is there a setting somewhere to have it go to 2 or 3 decimal places? That seems to be the cause of my other problem whereby P2A would seem to get confused on what airport I was landing it and give me an approach to a non-existent runway. I think what happened is the rounding error tuned me in to some other Tower/Approach and the app uses that to figure out what airport you are at.
  12. I was just flying out of a moderately busy European airport (would rather not say which as it may identify the other people involved, which is not my goal) during a non-peak time. I have about 30 flights on VATSIM now so I am still getting the hang of it, although I am a commercial pilot in real life so I'm by no means a rookie at ATC communications. So I load up my flight at a gate, there's a few planes at the airport but not too many, and there is no controller online. I announce my preferred runway and my taxi intentions over UNICOM as I always do, and begin my taxi. As I line up and announce over UNICOM again, I see a 777 line up on the opposite end and begin to throttle up. In order to avoid a collision (as I had forgotten to turn my "crash-detect" off, oops) I vacate the runway just in time. As he passes me, the pilot of the 777 messages me to ask what on earth I was doing. I tell him that I had announced my intentions on UNICOM and had received no answer at all, so I had lined up and was preparing to go. His only answer was "haha, good luck with that". I didn't think much of it, figuring he had just forgotten to announce. Right away, however, another 777 lined up on the opposite side of the runway and began to takeoff as well. After takeoff, he sent me an angry message (even though I was well behind the hold-short line by this point) with the winds, indicating that I couldn't possibly takeoff on my preferred runway with the winds as they were (which he was 100% correct about). This leads me to my first question: 1) Keeping in mind that there was still no controller online at this point, how did he get the winds information while still on the ground? Perhaps its a really newbie question, but I would assume that even with "Use real world weather" checked as I have it, it still is not going to be very precise and thus going to an outside source would be fairly useless. Is there a program that these pilots have downloaded, or am I missing something very simple? At this point, I begin my taxi to the opposite side of the runway because of the winds information, when a CTR comes online. I message him my intentions over text and get no response. I figure he's just busy so I slowly continue taxi and wait for him to respond (keep in mind I've filed for /r at this point). I reach the end of the runway and hear him talking to some A/C in the air, but still no response. I ended up waiting more than 10 minutes, sending occasional messages to his frequency just checking if maybe he had missed me or something, and don't get even a "standby" back by voice or by text. At this point I think I must have a software issue, so I double check that I'm sending the messages to his frequency (I am) and then refile my flight plan as /t (text only) and send him a message letting him know. I spend the next 15 minutes holding short of the runway, monitoring both UNICOM and the CTR frequency. I can still hear the controller talking to other aircraft, so I know I was connected and all that. Eventually I give in and decide to simply takeoff via the SID and be on my way. I announce over both frequencies, line up, and takeoff. As I takeoff, I hear another plane ask CTR why I took off as he was landing. CTR replies that he doesn't know as he didn't clear me to takeoff, and proceeds to berate me over frequency about not communicating with him and getting clearance. He then proceeds to threaten me with a suspension for flying incommunicado. At this point I apologized over text and simply disconnected as it was clear something wasn't right. Let me reiterate a few things. I am well aware of how to communicate with ATC and that I need clearance to take off, that is obvious. I also understand that I could have ruined other pilots' flights, and I always try to overcommunicate before I do anything on VATSIM. However, I had been sitting there for 25 minutes total at this point without getting a single voice or text response, even with nobody else waiting to takeoff ahead of me. I was also constantly trying to get in touch with ATC and was constantly informing over UNICOM as well. Finally, I was able to communicate with other pilots over UNICOM and was still hearing the controller over his frequency. This brings me to my second question: 2) Was this incident likely due to software issues, ATC not monitoring text, a grouchy ATC, pilot error, or a combination of a few of these? In addition, what should I have done in this situation different from what I did? Now I understand that VATSIM is just for fun and that a suspension, if it does come, likely won't be a big deal, but I also want to double check that I'm not making any glaring errors that will continue to cause situations like this. It's no fun for other pilots to have me taking off as they're trying to land, it's no fun for ATC having a plane that is 'apparently' not communicating, and it's no fun for me being berated over frequency when I'm just trying to have a bit of fun. Please let me know what you think, and feel free to lay into me if you feel I've done something stupid ;D I look forward to hearing from more experienced VATSIM pilots as well as controllers with a different perspective!
  13. Hi all. It's been a while but I'm back flying. I started FSX-SE as usual, contacted ground and tower and took off but the ATC will not "hand-off" from tower to approach. I have never experienced this before. I rebuilt the cfg file with no effect. Can anyone shed some light on this please? Thanks in advance, Glenn
  14. Hello, Pro-ATC/X has released a new update (v1.8.7.9) I would like some comments on the new update, how is the product working now? Do the update break something within the product like the previous version? I am really curious about this product but the price range is high so would like some feedback before purchasing it. Normally if there are errors and developers are active to fix it I will support them but it took Pro-ATC way too long for just an update and it seems like couple updates within a year, for me seems too few. Thank you, Hoang Le
