Unfortunately it's still not working when trying to view it on anything but my LAN.

I've set port forwarding to 80 and 443, set to both TCP and UDP to make sure. I've also added those ports in the inbound and outbound of my firewall. I had to do the same thing in order to get the multiplayer to work, so this is nothing new.

Not sure what the problem is.

I did get the map working by removing the 192 at the beginning of the line of code in the settings.

I have setup according to the instructions, I have the map up and seems to look right. However, when I fly I do not see any planes on the map. I have had several of our members test it and still never see any planes on the map. I am using the WWebserver with PHP 7.1.0

http://142.161.141.221:81

I used port 81 because when I tried using 80 I got error msg can not bind ip.addy to port 80. The map loads just never see planes.

Please help :)

I just had a look and it looks like you've fixed it.
Whatever it was. :)

Hello,
I have set up a web page for our small group's flights.
I used the older php Windows installer (5.x.x).
The page shows planes and the right-side pull-out shows the identities.

What I am finding is that that side-board and displayed planes seems to be limited to a list of 4.
I had 4 planes active and added a fifth. The fourth disappeared from the list and was replaced by the new one.
Later I removed the fifth and the fourth re-appeared on the list.

Is this expected ?

Have I missed something in the setup?

Thanks for having a look..

Hello,
I did send a PM with the site location.

Today I tried resetting the simconnect version on the system where the hub/web is running.

After rebooting, although a simconnect issue has yet to be solved, I can now see 5 concurrent users on the web which matches the set of connections active.

I am planning on blowing away all of the system and re-installing a fresh version of everything to see if that can clear my woes.

Perhaps it is best to wait until I clean up my act before any more time is wasted.

Hello again,
Today we had a group flight of 7 pilots.
My web page displayed only four aircraft of the 7.
The one provided through JoinFS client link showed all pilots.

What I noticed is that there were 4 identical models (N71FS) and only one of them displayed on my map.
Is it possible that the php web generator is losing sight of the others?

The whazzup.txt details at the time:

Well the good news is that the Whazzup file appears correct.
So we can eliminate issues with that and JoinFS.

I still think this maybe an issue with how quickly you have set the Map to update.

If you send me the contents of you map config file I'll give them the once over.

Hello,
I have sent a PM with a URL to get a zip file that includes all of the details about the map on my local site.

The php reload settings were changed form 60000 to 3000 on my active site.

I also did a static test using a php WWebserver 7.1.10 on another PC using the whazzup contents of the details posted in this thread.
When the web page opens it shows only 4 of the 7 listed in the whazzup.txt file.
Why are only 4 of the clients seen on the web page?
To me that appears to be of greatest importance at this point.

I've had a quick look and all seems in order.

I've not heard of this problem before and have tried your whazzup file with a few different maps I have installed.

All worked although admitidly there were only 4 users on your server (3 aircraft and 1 atc, confirmed by your whazzup and mine when connected to your hub) at the time.
So I was unable to check the error of not seeing more than 4 aircraft.

What you could try is replacing your whazzup address with the address that is in your settings.bak file and see if you see more than 4 users on your map by using a different whazzup file.

That would then eliminate your webserver and map.

Thanks for checking,

I was on the system when you were testing.
I shall try using a different whazzup address to see if that makes any difference.

Hello again,

I did change the address of the whazzup file location and there were many more aircraft showing.

I looked at each one in the whazzup file and each one seemed to have a unique callsign.

Today I change my static whazzup file from a flight last Sunday where only four aircraft showed but there were at least 7 flying.

Upon starting the webserver and checking the results I saw this which seems to confirm my suspicion regarding the map and duplicate callsigns:

joinfs-2017-11-15-static-sgf.jpg (144 KiB) Viewed 4075 times

I have asked my group to assign unique callsigns to aircraft used when we fly together on JoinFS.

Perhaps my finding might be shared with Peter or the map developer to consider what might be a best solution.

Best Regards,

That's great Darryl.

You now know that your map is working correctly.

A user should set their Aircraft Registration in the SIM as JoinFS reads the Registration/tail number and not the airline callsign or Flight number.

You can set a callsign in the Tailhumber box such as DV001 if that's what you would like the callsign on the Map to be.

N71FS is a default FSX tail number which is why a few users showed as that.

There should be no spaces in either the sim tail number or the JoinFS nickname box, as this can causes the different maps not to show a user.

All real world callsign have a trigraph followed by numbers and sometimes a letter.

Example: BAW123 or BAW123P where P may indicate it's a positioning flight.

The main map will display the real world Callsign if a real world trigraph is used.
The example above world display SPEEDBIRD under the callsign as BAW is the trigraph and SPEEDBIRD is the callsign for British Airways.

Regarding duplicate tail numbers only showing one aircraft on the Map you are using...
That might be the case although I would have thought it would show all the aircraft as the pilot ID is different for each?

It's something I've not seen before but like you've said the work around would be to not use a tail number that somebody else is using.

Hi Roo.

How would I go about getting custom aircraft icons for my map?


Thanks Roo!

Hi Kenny,

The easiest way I would say is to replace the .SVG icon in the map/Content/Icons folder.

There are online tools to convert png to svg files if that helps.

Hello Roo and thank you for the reply.

OK, there are four SVG icon files named planeD, planeH, planeL and planeM. Which one of these should I replace or do I need to replace all four?

Good question.
I'm having a few technical issues my end at the moment so Im unable to look for you.

So the short answer is I dont know.

The longer answer and the first thing I would do is to copy all the icons to somewhere else.
That way if you make a cock up, you can drag and drop them back.

I would Imagine (just a guess) that the letters after plane stand for Heavy, Medium and Light for the aircraft size.
D = Dont know. ;)

Although off the top of my head I think the icons change colour on the map when their selected or the map changes its background?
So chances are if the aircraft is selected it would display icon planeD with unselected aircraft showing as icon planeH for example.

The easiest thing to do would be to open the icon and see which one looks like the one you want to change.

After you've copied the originals replace one and see what happens.
You've backed up so you can always copy the icon back.

First thing to try would be to change the whazzup address
http://XX.XXX.XXX.XX:6112/whazzup.txt
TO
https://roo.servebeer.com/jfs/whazzup.txt

Do you see any Aircraft on the map?
