  1. Since I haven't found anything comparable, I've created a small tool for looking up call signs. The program uses the ICAO airline designator and resolutes it to the name of the airline and the voice call sign used for ATC communications. It currently features 998 airlines. Might be handy for air traffic controllers on Vatsim, IVAO or other networks http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=188395 The program requires NET 4.5. If you have any wishes for further functions or missing airlines, just post it here.
  2. Hi Im looking for Live ATC from Italy. The list from Live ATC has closed airports from Italy. Greeting Lysse
  3. I'm new to VATSIM ATC and have a headset. Done a few flights and I like the experience. However, I would like the headset to only play ATC sounds - NOT ambient plane sounds (i.e., engines, AC, cabin announcements, etc.) Essentially, when using the headset all sounds play through the headset and none through the speakers. Is there a way in X-Plane 10.50/Windows 10 to have headset only hear ATC and cpu speakers play everything else?
  4. Good Afternoon I have LIRQ from sim market and P3D refuses to assign runways for landing and takeoff as the AFCAD (.bgl) dictates. I checked with ADE and the assignments are correct although P3D gets them backwards. P3D has the app/arr (23) coming down a hillside which is not correct and against the ILS. I've checked for other signs of LIRQ and disabled them. No help at all. Thanks Jon
  5. I installed the demo to boeing 737 800 (default) but whenever I open Voxatc it closes and the recent comms just becomes white. Please help!
  6. Like most people I turned off the default over caffeinated X-Plane 11 ATC on day 2. I tried 124thATC and Pilot2ATC and I am liking both after a month of use. Here is a review video I created for Pilot2ATC .
  7. I was trying a short flight from EGFF to EGLC. The screenshot shows the assigned STAR (in blue). Everything was fine until I reached the BIG VOR when ATC directed me to heading 045 and descend to 6000ft for ILS on rwy 27 (this is the yellow line). At BIG I was 16000ft and couldn't descend in time to land. Why did the ATC cut the STAR like this? Can I stop it happening again?
  8. Dear All, Somehow when i start the vox atc from panel-instruments sections in p3dv4 in parking, it says test-test-test and a message appears ( can not initialize vox please be sure english us selected.....) But ı already done this step, my speech recognition setting is set already to English US in win 10 home edition , i complete microsoft speech reognition test, VOX speech recognition process etc... my p3d is set into c:/ p3dv4 , vox is in C:/vox , vox base is in C:/voxbase Please help me regarding my problem Thx.
  9. So I am having a problem. FSX ATC is trying to take me to vectors to ILS at a runway, but I want to use the one I have on my FMC instead. Is there a way to make the ATC follow my route, or can I figure out which STAR it is trying to take me to so that way I can put it in my FMC?
  10. Hi, I'm traditionally a virtual GA pilot - a twin prop is normally about as big as I like to go. However for an event coming up soon I really need to be flying something with a bit more oomph as the leg of the journey is really too long to do in a twin - so i've opted for the Embraer ERJ-145 from FeelThere on Steam. and had my first flight with it last night. Once i'd figured out that my CH Throttle Quadrant was shutting the engines down repeatedly (doh) I started to make better progress and I've got most of the procedures down now for startup, setting up the FMC and so forth, and a few other bits that I didn't get quite right I think I have figured out for my next flight - which leaves one major issue for me and i'm hoping you can help me understand this bit. I set up the FMC - in this case from EGSS to EGNX, a nice short test flight. The flight plan was set up as EGSS RWY 04 via BKY, and then on arrival to EGNX it was via I think PIGOT1J. I set the aircraft AP up to use the FMC, did the taxi to the runway and got takeoff clearance - after roll I ascended to 1000ft and engaged the autopilot. At this point, the FMC just wanted to fly on in the direction of the runway without turning west. What did I miss? I ended up disengaging AP and flying the route manually following ATC Instruction - which was fun, but probably missed the point. How do I ensure that the FMC knows the plan that ATC is going to direct me along? I set the flight plan up using the flight planner in FSX and then added the details in using the method described in the manual for the FMC - but the eventual path that I followed from ATC didn't look anything like the straight line that the flight planner came up with - i'm not looking to fly a straight line, but would be useful if I could validate that it's all working together and not doing two different things some how. I guess the other question I have then is how to deal with alterations that come in from the ATC like change of altitutde, change of course etc - how do I effect those changes in to the FMC? or do I switch to nav and use the heading but to redirect the plane in those cases? Thanks in advance - i'm a jet-newb but have to say I enjoyed the flight once I got in the air so i'm keen to get back in the cockpit and have another go Matt.
  11. I'm running FS2004 and the current version of edit voice pack for it. I found a link to the last official update of edit voice pack for FS2004 and the file was dated in 2006. It was the files which you download to your computer and then go into edit voice pack update and do the offline update. It worked great and i was messing with some settings and lost it. I was wondering if anyone here knows where it is? Thanks for the help in advance. If some finds it for me I'll deliver a steak dinner B)
  12. Ok, so say I have been designated a SID to follow after takeoff, the SID has strict rules for climbing for example at 4000ft at a certain waypoint, then 5000ft next one and so on. Then after takeoff atc instructs me let say for example "climb FL 150". Should I just forget the published restrictions and shoot up or obey the restrictions until past the last restriction point and then just climb to assigned FL? And if I follow the restrictions, say the ATC directs starts all of a sudden giving me vectors (which take me off my published SID lateral route) out of the terminal area, can I at that point forget about the alt restrictions since I am not even flying the published SID anymore? Thanks!
  13. While I was practicing takeoff and landing in San Juan PR, TJSJ in a helicopter (Bell 429) start wandering if P2A support helicopters. By reading some safety rules I found the following; "While it's unusual for an airplane to land or takeoff from other than the runway, there's often no reason why helicopter operations need to be tied to the runway surface. The ability to operate from other areas is another way helicopters can avoid the flow of fixed-wing traffic." So I started to search, collect and read related info. 4-3-17.

  14. I am trying to adjust the call signs for my aircraft. I tried adjusting the atc sections in the configuration file, but ended up with atc pronouncing each letter...using the phonetic alphabet. I want the system to recognize my aircraft as American 444, Speedbird 189 etc. not Boeing 0001 or Airbus 0002. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
  15. Hi, I've downloaded the beta yesterday (I think there's been a rc update since then). I've previously used XP10 on Steam and have bought some Carenado planes and was a bit concerned that Steam assets may not work in a standalone XP install. Also, I've been using the X Plane to Radar Contact bridging program from Multi Crew XP with XP10 http://www.multicrewxp.com/RC4toXplane.pdf as the native ATC is a bit ropey (and still is in XP11). Well, the good news is that everything works seamlessly just by copying the folders from the Steam install of XP10 into the new XP11 folder for both the planes and the plugins. So if you were worried about legacy assets for XP10 working with the new version, all appears to be fine. x737 works fine too. Anyway, there you go, good news. XP11 looks wonderful so far, I look forward to seeing what the reaction from the community is in the longer term, hopefully as positive as it deserves. Paul
  16. I have recently installed VOXATC 7.2 Beta on my system. When loading a flightplan, in my sim, the system displays wrong ai traffic. Example: When departing from EHAM for a flight to EDDH, 90% of all my ai aircraft at EHAM, consist of AN-74-100's of Cavok Airlines (Ukraine). Have uninstalled and reinstalled VOX, but unfortunately, no remidy. Have restarted the system and was able to replicate the problem. My system: Prepar3D Prosim737 AS16 (via client) Rex soft clouds REX Worldwide airports ###ai ORBX Global, Vector, Europe, U.S. I have dissabled ai traffic in Prepar3d as suggested in the manual and have VOXATC ai traffic at 40%. Anyaone has a clue as to where to look for a solution?
  17. As a recent convert to vox atc, I see many people are enjoying - Ivona, cereproc voices. I am unable to run the Ivona voices as I get the "FATAL ERRORetc" and wonder "am i doing anything simply wrong" Advice will be well received, bearing in mind this has used up a lot of my time already and may have to settle for vanilla vox! Specs - - VOX 7.41 (C), (works fine with vox pop voices without Ivona voices) FSX GOLD on ssd (F) 4790K at 4.4 GHZ,(4 cores) 16mb RAM, 960gtx. Downloaded IVONA voice - from harpo site (also tried "NAUNCE" and also downloads from "vision aid international" - (as free trial),All Install fine, speaks in voice config and assigned as controller. The install also adds "speech to go" on my (C) drive. I hear the voice on initialization of vox ,after running through the atis it gives me the "FATAL ERROR etc".Removing the voice reverts vox to working again. LOG- At start of log- Exception while initializing Asti : Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Program Files (x86)\Internal Workings\VoxATC FSX\AstiInt.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified I cannot find this file anywhere. later in log - Exception while initializing iFlyInt : Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Program Files (x86)\Speech2Go Voice Package\x86\iFly.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified Funny one i havent got ifly. Near end of log- Aircraft exception Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at com.intworkings.voxatc.Intention.Extract(String messStr, RadioMessage rm) at com.intworkings.voxatc.RadioMessageImpl.ExtractItems(RadioMessage rmIn) at com.intworkings.voxatc.RadioMessageImpl.AddPacket(RTPacket packet) at com.intworkings.voxatc.CommunicatorBase.AddPacket(RTPacket packet) at com.intworkings.voxatc.Pilot.Run() at com.intworkings.voxatc.AIAircraft.Run() at com.intworkings.voxatc.AircraftWorker.Run() 1769608 Ins Text set : FATAL ERROR! disable VoxATC Funny thing - in previous crashes i came across missing files, - elevationsharp.dll and json which the log flagged. I found those in vox atc folder and copied them to the speech to go file which took care of that particular log file problem? I was hoping that someone might see a solution or have an idea otherwise i will occasionally attempt to delve deeper than my current digital limitations Update log when vox all functioning. - Log part 1 and 2 still occur but dosnt affect programme run. Cheers John
  18. Hello, for some reason I'm not getting any response from the ATC. Also during startup I get following error : Which is odd because as you can see I in fact do have English installed and set as default (I have my native language pack installed as well but that should not be a problem since it's not default, right? ) : But for some reason I do not get any response from the ATC at all. I'm using the text "SayIt" interface as I don't have mic setup, plus I don't really want to be talking to my computer, text interface is fine :-) Also the test in config does not work. The voice tests work fine, I even get ATIS response when I tune in ATIS on radio (P2ATC set to handle ATIS) but no response from any actual controllers : I'm flying IXEG 733 which uses a lot of custom systems so just to make sure it's not blocked by battery and so on I set P2ATC to ignore those : Any ideas pls ? PS: My flight plan seems fine. It's validated and filed. Also I'm using LKTB Gnd to try to get the clearance as there is no dedicated clearance frequency but that is not the issue - I tried them all, I get response from none. PS2: I also tried running the P2ATC as administrator and also in Win7 compatibility mode (just in case). No luck.
  19. I'm always trying to find good airports that stream 'clearance delivery' traffic. It seems to be such a challenge to find an airport where this frequency has a lot of traffic. Does anyone know of any airports that stream busy 'clearance delivery' streams? I'm trying to gain enough experience in listening to the initial clearance for flights.
  20. Hi everyone, I'd like to create this thread in order to regroup all the ideas this community has to improve FSW so DTG devlopment team can see all our expectations on one page. Having a team listening to the Flight Sim Community for creating the perfect sim is rare so I hope this thread will be useful for all of us. In order to keep this readable, your posts can contain 2 categories: - small improvments that could be implemented rapidly - big and long-term improvments (real world weather etc...) Please dont comment or discuss too much, keep it simple and readable, give your ideas that's all. Let DTG Team judge what is worth it and what can be done or not. I'll start: Short ones : _rain sound could be louder to feel and fear the elements :) (or be adjustable, the environment slider is currently not that efficient) _make a " visual smoke effect" if you look at the wings from the cockpit when flying through clouds to simulate the plane is REALLY in it. _make ATC speak faster like in real life _ Head anticipation in turns when taxi and flying (like in XP Realistic addon) Big ones : _ a "FSPassengers like" feature whith passengers screaming in turbulence (make us avoid the clouds) _Windows Voice Recognition for ATC would be awesome like in Tower3DPro _ ATC speaking with accents depending on which continent or country we fly
  21. Hi all I am using xplane 11 . latest beta The atc windows opens and i put in a plane but the atc never responds No atc voices at all any thoughts????

  23. Hi--installed the latest v7 beta into the latest version of P3D using IVONA and AT&T voices. Worked fine for a while, then I got a warning there was some problem and I should check to make sure I have an English version of the text to speech engine. Rebooted and VOX worked fine for a couple of flights and then the same thing happened again and subsequent rebooting hasn't fixed it. I haven't done anything different to Windows 7, as I don't even know where the text to speech engine is. The speech to text aspect of VOX works fine--i.e. the flight plan trainer. It's just the text to speech which is messed up. Any suggestions? Thanks much, Jay.
  24. Ok so I am flying in a KAL PMDG 777-300er from KJFK to RKSI and I loaded a flight plan from flightplanner.org into both the FMC and FSX flight planner. Whenever I ask the ATC to increase or decrease my cruise altitude, the options go blank and I can't respond or do anything on the interface. I have never had this problem before with PMDG and other aircraft and I dont know whats causing it. It was working absolutely fine on my inbound flight. ALSO: I tried creating the fplan inside fsx using the default flight planner and the same thing happened. I can do everything else accept altitude change.
