I'm putting together a cross platform cross community flight using JoinFS.

I already have confirmation from other communities that they would like to join in.
Full details can be found here http://roo.servebeer.com/cccgf.html

Let me know if you or your group might be interested and if so, how many you think would likely attend.


ATC ROO



There are now test servers up so you and your group can setup and test before the event in order for things to run smoothly on the day.

 

If you know that there are people attending to represent your community, you can send me a link to your groups logo (small version please) which I'll add to the events page.

 

This will be a small advert for your group and let any other groups reading the page know who is definitely attending.

 

Any questions you have should be answered by reading the info on the events page, however if it's not then please do ask me via email.

 

By the ammount of email responses I have had so far I can say that this event is happening and will be busy.

 

It's only a few weeks away now and I'm trying my best to help it run smoothly on the day, so please do test your setup before the event.

 

I hope everybody can attend as it's a great way to share info between communities and enjoy a large flight with like minded people.

Roo -

I see that your site still links us to the JoinFS version 1.0.14 (the stable version). Is that the one we should use? Or ...

(and maybe this one is for Peter) - if we have the latest TEST version (1.0.19 as of this post unless Peter has slipped yet another one in on us while I was not looking, prolific coder that he is!) will we be OK with using that or do we have to roll back to the stable v1.0.14?

Dan

Hi Dan,

You don't need to roll back to 1.0.14. Both the stable and test versions can co-exist on your PC. There will be two icons on your desktop, the test version will have (TEST) next to it. The current versions are 1.0.14 and 1.0.19 for stable and test, respectively.

If 1.0.19 proves to be ok, then I'd like to use that for the event, in which case I'll synchronize both versions to 1.0.19. But we'll have to see over the next few days.

As Peter says..

You can install both at the same time, I do this.

The event will run on the Stable version that is available on the day.

Thanks. I will test the setup of both together. Will try the v1.0.19 using a v1.0.14 version to create the session.

Hi Dan,

just updated to version 1.0.20. Sorry, but I doubt that you'll be that surprised ;)

It's only a minor update in 20. I found a small problem with the substitution switching between airplanes and helicopters.

By the way, version 14 is incompatible with 20. You won't be able to connect one to the other.

Peter.

Thanks for the update. And thanks for letting us know that v20 will not connect to v14 - saves us a bit of testing.

Will continue to watch to see if there is a newer stable version.

And, thanks again for all your hard work and dedication.

Dan

I was able to install and run both v14 and TEST v20 on my Win7 machine. But when I tried to do the same on my Win10 machine (using the same file folder structure to keep the Test and Stable versions separate) I get the message:

then the installer closes.

Hi Dan,

Must be to do with the installer I'm using. I have Windows 10 and both versions installed ok.

Have you tried uninstalling both versions first and then installing them again? That should hopefully fix it.
