Can't Bookmark from Hub List

Re: Shared Cockpit - Sort of a Bug

Not sure if this makes a difference but the brief but noticeable jitters occurred when the owner took back control of the primary flight controls and we were flying in a helicopter (default Augusta Westland).

Shared Cockpit - Sort of a Bug

Gear and flaps can be controlled by the joining pilot but this is in the primary flight controls handover - not in the 'Other' category. We can confirm that the 'brake thing' has been fixed. No other issues noted with sharing but exhaustive testing was not done. Also - on returning controls back to ...

Re: Auto join feature

Just to jump in with one quick question - if all of us have the Auto Join feature selected, originally all on the same hub, then one aircraft flies into an area that causes a connection to a different hub will that plane disappear from view of the original group. Another way to ask this - if I conne...

Re: Odd Findings

From your lips to the IP gods' ears - now back to seeing the IP4 address. Will watch for information regarding the mysterious missing Hubs. Thanks so much. And, just wanted to pass on to you that it seems there is a genuine movement afoot in our organization to get folks to use JoinFS. With that, th...

Re: Shared Cockpit - Stable v1.1.15

We repeated our testing and this time all seemed to work as expected - all aircraft reflected control, gear, flap, frequencies, etc. changes correctly. So, I am not sure what the issue was the first time. Even landing light and nav light switch position changes were seen correctly. Again noted that ...

Re: Odd Findings

I got stable v1.1.15 from the 'Install' page of the JoinFS site. Initially all showed the IP4 address (3 separate computers). After downloading I restarted the Hub server and had not shut that down until now - I disconnected but took a screen shot before closing. Note the IP4 address in the 'My IP' ...

Odd Findings

We had four people joining one aircraft - no problems. A second group of four folks set up at a different airport (same host Hub) , one acting as ATC. Seems that was when the problems began. The original four, joined by another pilot to make five in our group now could not see all of the aircraft - ...

Re: Shared Cockpit - Stable v1.1.15

Peter - We had seven people join an aircraft. All experienced the brake flag issue (some showing 'Brakes' and others seeing 'Differential Brakes' at various times). They also saw the "jumpy" airspeed indicator. All were in the FSX CRJ-700. All were using stable v1.1.15. We did confirm that...

Re: Shared Cockpit - Stable v1.1.15

Hi, Dan. Thanks for the feedback. I can add the autopilot I think, that shouldn't be a problem. I think the altimeter setting ought to be synchronized, so I'll add that. Excellent. Thanks very much - this will be a valuable additional feature for us You say that the aircraft owner could not see the...

Re: Shared Cockpit - Stable v1.1.15

I will also add to this - in the observer's aircraft there is still an issue with the Brakes / Differential Brakes showing as applied even though there is no indication that brakes are in the the aircraft of the PF. On landing the PF had no brakes whatsoever. And - three others testing cockpit shari...

Shared Cockpit - Stable v1.1.15

Peter: We tested the shared cockpit functions yesterday in the 'stock' FSX Baron 58. This is what we found: Others please feel free to comment - especially regarding my view on what the co-pilot / PNF should be able to do described later in this post. When the pilot joining was only observing all of...

Re: recorder

And, if it's a new plane even if you then scanned for models I have found that if you do not restart FSX after installing the plane then you will not see it.

Re: Join FS detection range

Don't know if this helps or even pertains - but I am able to see aircraft anywhere in the world on Plan-G (NOTE - this requires a manual change in the configuration file - the maximum range you can specify directly through the Plan-G interface is 200 kM). I have no clue if simconnect is involved in ...

This might be helpful - http://www.mediafire.com/file/i4c5rng7gm3sz1a/MultiPlayerCamMod.zip See the ReadMe pdf - simple to install and includes a backup of the original camera.cfg file (you will need to back up your current one if you have made other changes).

Nope - didn't notice that. Not sure why I did not think of that. Will check it the next time this happens.

An Observation - Not Visible on Re-Start After FSX CTD

I have observed this twice over the past couple of months so believe it is a true phenomenon - only two of us flying on a private session so I am not sure what would happen if one person has an FSX CTD with regard to what others would see if there are several people in the session. Note that in both...

Re: JoinFS - First Use report from the FSX Bluebirds

Thanks Tisor. Maybe the 'magic' is that you are connecting directly to the server (not using FSOpen or similar connection). Also - we have encountered the issue that not having exactly the same aircraft will cause FSX-Steam not to allow aircraft sharing (in some cases one gauge difference or even a ...

Re: Running JoinFS on a 2nd Networked PC

Having a port forwarded always helps for any program. But I've never asked if the people I connect through have a port forwarded for JFS. The theory being JFS is using one of their ports successfully already and if the hub dropped everybody would jump to somebody else anyway. Thanks Roo - certainly...

Re: JoinFS - First Use report from the FSX Bluebirds

The Steam version of FSX comes with everything that is needed to connect. I have port 6112 forwarded (the port shown in the Network Settings screen) and get the same error whether I go through the Steam session 'Connect Directly' or the LAN 'Connect Directly' function. Based on the aircraft that com...
