Re: P3D version 4

Thank you Peter for your prompt attention as always. I will carry out more tests and keep you posted but good to know that it works OK in P3D v 4 anyway. Cheers Michael. Model visibility in P3D v4 can sometimes be lost due to the models having been built for FS2004. Although I don't know why it occ...

A couple of data logs recording possible bugs.

Hi Peter, hope you're well! Added a couple of recent logs from MODsim for you. I had a couple of crashes due to another user letting loose with TacPack weapons when my TP wasn't switched on ( File = log-previous ). Probably unavoidable in all honesty but kept the log anyway for info purposes. The fi...

Welcome back!

I'd just like to be the first to say welcome back Peter, I'm sure I speak for many when I say that I'm so glad you've decided to open the forum back up and continue development of JoinFS.

If you need any help or feedback from myself or any of us at MODsim, don't hesitate to ask :)

TacPack report for v1.1.6

Just an FYI Peter from a sortie last night at MODsim: A generally successful night. CBY07 and CBY05 were joined over the North Sea by VLY02. CBY04 came on server, but has TacPack issues launching missiles with his Typhoon, so didn't join the exercise. The key to the successful use of TacPack in Join...

Join FS detection range

Hi Peter, hope all's well! I've had a request from a member of our org who operates a squadron ( VIII, RAF ) using the E3 Sentry aircraft. The Sentry fulfils a command and control role and has the FSX radar modified to be inside the VC, with a 300+nm range. The pilot has asked if the JoinFS detectio...

Very slow loading time for v1.1.10

Hi Peter, A minor issue that we've noticed on the new version: upon clicking the program's desktop icon to run it can take a minute or even two to start up and for the window to appear. This results in uncertainty over whether it's actually been clicked or not. Is there any reason for this as none o...

Shared cockpit procedure.

Hi Peter, hope all's well! Just writing in to ask for a procedural for how to share cockpit controls and functions. We did a test tonight at MODsim, and it was tricky to figure out who had control of what. I lost all control of my brakes at one point, and they never came back even after leaving the ...

Re: Towerview consideration

There are a number of ways you can do this: 1) Start a Multiplayer session as an ATC Controller, save the flight. Then you can access that saved flight in Free Flight for use with JoinFS and your radar of choice. 2) Download this tower, which can be moved about as per a normal aircraft using the sle...

Re: Using JoinFS in an airshow

There's only really way that you could do this "live"; 1) Have the cameraman as Bob and yourself as the pilot in the same JoinFS session, with the cameraman using FSX's AI view to maintain a track on your position in the sky while filming. He then broadcasts the footage live at the same ti...

Re: Network latency issue 1.0.14

Well that definitely adds weight to the theory. The next test version may be a little bit longer. ;) Peter Hi Peter, I did try to send a PM but it vanished. If we use v1.1.8 is it still stable otherwise? The shared controls are obviously out but if we share cockpit via the main aircraft page of Joi...

Re: Network latency issue 1.0.14

It seems as though performing any other action while inside FSX can cau...

Re: v1.1.8 sharing cockpit problems.

Share cockpit from the aircraft list is still there in 1.1.8 but greyed out, presumably because of the permissions system now in place. I don't know if anyone at MODsim knew that aircraft had to be selected individually Peter for shared controls - when I tested it I simply jumped into the cockpit of...

Re: v1.1.8 sharing cockpit problems.

Hi Peter, Understood mate. I should add that externally, 1.1.8 was reported as smooth as ever and passenger mode was likely unaffected. I had not realised that passenger mode and shared controls were distinct from each other until reading another recent post here. I think that one of the problems he...

v1.1.8 sharing cockpit problems.

Hi Peter, MODsim did a major test of the cockpit sharing controls last night. I wasn't present for it but I'm afraid there were lots of problems: Variable altitude differences in cockpit, over 1,000ft at times. Control surfaces reversed for some users ( visually, not in terms of actual aerodynamics ...

Re: Follow Distance & Circle of Activity Slider Explanation

Briefly, the follow distance is a setting that details how far away you would be from another aircraft if you chose to "Follow" then using the selector button in the JoinFS menu. The Circle of Activity slider sets how far away you want aircraft on the network to be simulated, which can be ...
