Audio for VATSIM Beta Test

All,

VATSIM UK’s largest event of the year is this weekend, and we look forward to all VATSIM members experiencing the best ATC the UK has to offer! A large number of UK positions will be staffed live from a conference room in Birmingham, UK from 0900z - 2100z on Saturday 24 August and again from 0900z to 1200z on Sunday 25 August on our current codec, live on the VATSIM network.

On Sunday the controllers will be shifting to separate audio for the VATSIM beta server, attempting the largest beta test we have seen to date to stress test our new voice solution. This test will run from 1300z - 1700z on Sunday 25 August and all VATSIM members are eligible to participate in this test. If you are interested, sign up at vats.im/beta and, once approved, you will be sent an email with instructions on how to download software and connect to the separate beta servers.

Note that ATC activities all day Saturday and Sunday until 1300z will take place on the current VATSIM servers and only the 4 hour period on Sunday will take place on the beta servers. We will be back on the normal servers from 1700z.

We look forward to seeing you this weekend on VATSIM!

So does it finish at 1600 or 1700?

From the AFV website:

I'm guessing the confusion arose from the fact that 13-17z is a 4 hour period, not 3 as stated in the post.

Ignore - now that I know to look at a different map...

I use x-plane on a Mac to fly on vatsim. The AFV beta page only provides Windows exe downloads; xsquawkbox website shows no sign of being updated for vatsim's new audio.

I've tried to follow the forums etc but can't find anything obvious for the Mac community out here. 

What's the plan? No support? Run a standalone client in Windows emulator? Or xsquawkbox update?

Thanks in advance, sorry if I've missed something.

XSquawkbox will support the new AFV when it comes out, as will Swift ?
