  1. The first beta of the next version for the plugin is attached. This thread is for bug reports and questions about the new features. For a list of changes, please refer to the included version history document. Some highlights: "TopSkyCallsigns.txt" and "TopSkyCallsignsLocal.txt" data files are no longer read by the plugin. The callsigns are only read from "ICAO_Airlines.txt" (which was already an available option before), and the latter file is now called "ICAO_Airlines_Virtual.txt" The "R/T" button in menus to select whether a clearance is to be sent using CPDLC or RTF has been changed to separate "R/T" and "CPDLC" selection buttons. This makes the current selection clearer. "SBY" and "UNABLE" responses to level requests have been moved from the RFL menu to the CFL menu "+/-" options have been added to the ASP menu Plenty of new aircraft lists (EuroScope-style lists) - only available when using the latest ES beta r29, otherwise inhibited. "Sign In" (i.e. reading the local settings file) is now automatic by default, but can be inhibited using settings Division into "controlled" and "uncontrolled" tracks (has an effect on track coloring, eligibility for filtering, placement in the plugin's flight lists... This is a rather big change that may take some getting used to. "uncontrolled" tracks are basically VFR flights that are not ASSUMED by anyone "uncontrolled" tracks are subject to filtering (no more VFR cluttering the display!) and are shown in unconcerned color even inside your sector new state "ON_CONTACT" can be set in the callsign menu. This colors the track with assumed color (and is network-wise the same as assumed, only this plugin sees the difference between assumed and on_contact) but does not make it "controlled" In the callsign menu, "Assume" for an "uncontrolled" track makes it ASSUMED and "controlled". "Free" or "On Contact" makes it "uncontrolled" again The package includes the plugin dll, the manual set, an example set of cursors and sounds, and a new data file "ICAO_Aircraft.json". It does not replace the ICAO_Aircraft.txt file, it only provides more data. While the plugin can be used almost straight out of the box when updating from 2.3.1, some of the new functions may need some setup - the flight lists especially won't show anything useful until their contents are defined - so either be prepared to do some work setting things up, use only the features that work without having to do anything (to be fair, most of the stuff is like that), or wait until someone provides a ready setup with all the new shiny stuff available.

  4. Hello, Just wanted to give some massive thumbs up to @Joonatan Porkkala & @Jesse Pitkanen who were manning Helsinki Control & Helsinki Tower respectively. Bit of a chaotic approach phase with Tower having problems, but they managed to get me on the ground nice & easy... super friendly controllers, thank you for the late night service at Helsinki. Regards, Magnus Aabye (FIN960)

  5. Are you sure that's correct? I think needing to enter the leading zero is how the real system works

  6. The way it is configured where I work is that departures from main airports (i.e. the airport(s) associated with the approach control unit) are displayed in the Global Departure List, whereas departures from sattelite airports are all displayed in the (single) ETWR list. But it's a matter of local configuration for sure.

  7. Right I see. In that case we need Departure lists that can filter on ADEP Thanks for the explanation!!

  8. It will in the next build. The CIRCLE line was a last-minute addition, initially only for maps but then I ported the code over to areas as well, just didn't have time to integrate the bound code to it. The code isn't handling the auto sign in setting correctly (it keeps reading it on every settings file reload instead of only on startup so when you sign in, it triggers a settings reload which, when seeing the setting there, immediately signs you out again...) I didn't find anything obviously wrong with the main/proxy display code for the window settings. The problem may be that the code is run before the plugin gets the information that it's being run on a proxy instance. A settings file reload should then fix the situation (either manually, or automatically when a callsign change is seen by the code) The APW alert sound button isn't connected to anything it seems. For now, the only way to change that setting is through the settings files. I can't replicate any crash on exit. Probably best to test it by doing absolutely nothing except adjust a single list and then exit to see if it crashes to find out what exactly is causing it. The "unknown item" error is a false alert for those two settings, the values should be applied correctly. No comment on the SAP issue for now, I'll try to find time to check it out sometime next week. Any more detailed information is always helpful (AFL, CFL, RFL, XFL, area upper limit, aircraft's lowest EuroScope-calculated profile altitude within the area lateral boundary (including buffer), does the alert disappear immediately when AFL is above the upper limit, etc.) If the real COOPANS build has two or more ETWR lists, I don't see a problem adding another one to the code, but if not, then probably not as the lists aren't exactly flexible code-wise and have a performance impact regardless of whether they are currently displayed or not. Seems to be a typo in the code there, it should only enter the single letter FAA code in that case. If you have "VATSIM" as the METAR source then this is normal. VATSIM METARs can't be deleted. EuroScope keeps downloading them in the background and the plugin just displays everything it receives. If you have "Plugin", then it should be able to delete them.

  9. Hello, Is there a way to make the ACTIVE lines in the AREA & MAPS files work as an AND function in stead of an OR? I want to display a map if I'm connected with a certain ID AND make it depandand on the runway in use. Like this: ACTIVE:ID:CT,BI:*:*:* && ACTIVE:RWY:ARR:EBCI24:DEP:EBCI24 So the map should be displayed only when I'm CT or BI and runway 24 is in use for ARR & DEP. Thanks, Erik

  11. Hi, version 2.3.1 was released in February. Even though I don't believe there were any changes related to areas handling from the last beta to the release version, it's probably worth checking out (also - and this is unrelated to the issue here - unless you're controlling in Sweden, the SE setup probably isn't very useful as the things that setting affect are mostly country-specific). If the behavior is the same, check what the issue actually is: the area is not being deactivated, or the area is deactivated but the screen background is not automatically refreshed The difference there being that in the latter case the area will show as inactive in the areas window and zooming or panning the screen will remove it from display. Version 2.3.x will not be getting any more updates unless a critical fix is needed. Assuming the issue is still present in 2.3.1, check it also in the beta for 2.4 once it becomes available as it has a lot of changes in the code so it's possible that it's already fixed there.
