RT COMMS

Hi again Peter,

Any chance of getting the RT's to work instead of us using Skype etc.

Cheers Mike.

Hi Mike,

Do you mean adding voice support to JoinFS? I hadn't planned to. Would this be much of an advantage? Once I solve the duplicate aircraft problem, you could fly on VATSIM/IVAO for proper RT control.

There are a couple of free voice (gaming) services out there

- Discord https://discordapp.com/
- GameVox https://www.gamevox.com/en/

Both work well, are easy to set up, display on a VA or Club Website and did I mention they're free! Just my opinion but adding comms to JoinFS isn't necessary. Other opinions may vary.

I agree with Martin.

FSX voice isn't the best anyway.

If it's the swapping frequencies when talking to controllers you miss then there are options available.

Our local group of pilots and I do not like Skype as it does have some hit on the internet connection however you mention other gaming chat systems but they are of no interest whatsoever.

Perhaps we are all a little old fashioned but the aircraft are fitted with radio communications and we would prefer to use that form of contact.

It also adds more realism to the multi-player flying in my opinion.

Kindest Regards, Mike.

If there's enough interest in it I will consider it, but it will be low down on the priority list as there's plenty of other things to add at the moment.

Thanks for your interest,
Peter

I have created a Plugin that allows you to auto switch channels in Teamspeak 3 when you tune your aircraft radio if that's of any help?

Now that is cool! I'd take a link to that if you'd pass it along. Can I add it as a download to my VA's web site with your permission and credit?

The download links are in the post below.
http://msflights.net/forum/showthread.p ... adio-Stack

Feel free to use it, as thats why I created it no credit is needed.

I created the 32bit Plugin based on simconnect with lots of help from a chap at FSDeveloper.
The 64 bit Plugin uses FSUIPC (so needs that installed too) and was created by somebody else using the 32bit code I put together.
The 32bit Teamspeak client can be installed on a 64bit system.

Creating channels with 6 digit frequencies(123.450) works best.
If you set a name in the channel TTS settings (Denver Tower or simply tower) it will speak it when you switch, otherwise it will read back the frequency.

That is pretty cool ATC_Roo. I've downloaded it and sent it off to my ATC guys to see if they think we can use it.
