Version 2023/09a Available

Due to the 8.33 kHz trial, this update is mandatory for all controllers

⚠️ You must update your sector file and controller pack to ensure correct sector ownership and sector file identification when controlling.

Once you have updated, if you see any position in the controller list identified with the code <<ERROR, then it means they are using the incorrect frequency. Please direct them to update their sector file and to this forum for details of the correct frequency.

Installation Instructions

Due to the amount of changes made this cycle, we have chosen not to include a changes only download.

The pack is compatible with EuroScope 3.2.3 (the latest version) which can be downloaded here. We now recommend installing the pack into the new default 'working directory': \%appdata%\Roaming\EuroScope

A small program (Logon Details.exe) is now included in the main ‘UK folder’ This will insert basic user data into all required files, excluding passwords. Run this program before opening a profile.

See the README contained within the pack for full details.
