atc-software Help with Euroscope setup

Recommended Posts

Andrew McCabe

I am looking for a bit of help getting my Euroscope setup again.  I did my ATC training on Vatsim years ago and when I say that I mean I did my initial training on ASRC and then VRC !   I did get Euroscope set up when it came out and did a bit of controlling, but in recent years this has been logging on periodically during the day, but not surprisingly very little traffic if any.  Anyway, every winter I tell myself I should try and get back into it.  So here I am again.  Simon Irvine will be fed up hearing this from me 😉    .

Reinstalled everything on a new PC recently and I think I have the UK pack all installed correctly.  So I was planning just listening in for a while before I go any further, but I have hit on a problem.  Although my ES  hardware set up is set for my USB headset, when I listen to a frequency the audio starts on the headset, but immediately changes to the speakers.  I've gone through my settings again and again and cannot sea any reason why this would happen.    Can anyone assist ?     If I can get things sorted and do a bit of observing, I'll maybe take the plunge again.

Sounds like you are doing the same as me! (just starting to control again myself)

Euroscope offers so much more to a controller than VRC or ASRC did, I'm enjoying using it.

With regards to the speakers, I find when I listen to frequencies rather than controlling it comes out of the speakers, but when I control it does come out of the headset.

I'm not sure how you've set up the hardware in the Voice Communications Setup window, but the primary output is used for your primary frequency when logged on as a controller, and the secondary output is used for any frequencies you monitor or listen to.

Thanks.   That seems to have been the issue.  I changed the selected devices to ensure only the secondary output was routed to the headset and it works.

First step is make sure your visibility range is set to Gatwick using the .vis command

e.g.

.vis EGKK

Hello Harley, I am not to sure about how to get rid of the blue lines but with regards to the depature list, you need to set the active runways. 

You can do this by doing the following:

  • Select the runways button on the top bar in ES.

  • Then you need to scroll down to find the airport you are observing/controlling and press the "DEP" box and the "ARR box" and then select which RWY you/they are using. E.G. in this case you are at EGKK and you are using RWY 26L for departures and RWY 26L for arrivals. When you press one of the boxes in the first "DEP" and "ARR" collum the other ones will fill in as well.

  • Once you have done that you can hit "Ok" and then the aircraft should show up on the list.

If you have any questions about this or don't understand any of it please do let me know and I will try my best to help 🙂

Its funny when you look back at the things you have completed in the past, and as per the op's post i made myself a promise that i would return to Vatsim (EGBB or EGCC) and although a C3 rating its been 3-4 years plus without touching it. im assuming by joining TS a few people could maybe help setup eurocontrol and give some reminder guidance to its functions. i think i can remember most of the IFR stuff but back then very few people did VFR so i know that's going to be very rusty. 

 

Looking forward to seeing some of you online shortly (TM)

Welcome back Darren! Main differences are the massive air space changes going on all the time. Keep the latest sector file in your ES set up and it'll keep you up to date. I've seen you on the telly playing football for Man Utd 😀 but it'll be good to see you back on the scopes!

      Is there any any logic to the display of the aircraft type and wake category with the plugin?
      Having essentially ported from VCA, I note that any string within the filed a/c type is also displayed, and somewhat limits the UK wake category.
      i.e. if someone has filed A319/L or H/B77L/X the plugin will display A319/L/M or H/B77L/X/H respectively. (doesn't fit nicely in my 7 character box)
      The only method to get a correct display is to remove the other bits the person has filed, to just leave the correct ICAO code.
      EuroScope itself seems to be able to ignore the FAA equipment code that people file, but this part of the plugin doesn't.
      Maybe this will all be fixed when VATSIM finally moves to the ICAO flight plan format?
      Cheers,
      Luke
      P.s. Good Work!

      Recently while I was controlling as EGKK_GND and EGKK_DEL I have encountered some problems regarding radio communication. Pilots are complaining that I am not responding to them, the thing is I wont be able to hear any of the transmissions from the pilots until and unless I transmit to them after that I will be able to hear the transmissions from them and again after few minutes the problem started again.

      So, I've been mentioning a few little EuroScope things to people recently, often with a reply of 'oh, I didn't know you could do that?!'. So let's please share anything you think might be a little quirky, and maybe we can all learn a thing or two...
      'GRABBING' THE TEXT CHAT
      Press Ctrl+Up Arrow Key, and you'll 'grab' the previous line in the text chat down into the command line.  Other SET -> Save chat to a file / Save chat to a clipboard CREATING A FLIGHTPLAN FOR AN AIRCRAFT
      VFR flight with no FP, and you want to create one based on their report? Or at least record details of depa/dest/type etc.? ASEL the aircraft, either by clicking on it somewhere (tag/voice room) or by typing (part of) its callsign and pressing the numpad +. Then F1 followed by the a key (or simply type .am), and press the numpad + again. OR F1, then the a key (or simply type .am), then click on the aircraft. RELEASING A TAG
      If General Settings -> Misc Options -> Use hovering TAG for key commands is ticked, then hover over an aircraft's tag and press Shift+F4. It'll drop the tag (i.e. not initiate handover). Or ASEL the aircraft, Shift+F4, and press numpad +. Anyone got anything else...?
      (any references to numpad + - the ASEL key - are assuming you haven't changed the default in General Settings)

      Hey all,
      i had my very first session as S1 at Edinburgh today and had a lot of fun, thanks to all the pilots that flew through and my fellow controllers online in Tower and APP.
      I had one problem though, only in euroacope I could not hit T. Euroscope would not acknowledge my T key at all. It was fine on other software. I carried on regardless, just some of my text messages were a bit funky, like “Axi sand 21 via A L G”  🙂
       
      I hope someone can help.

      Guys.  I am aware of the new SIDs at some of our airfields (eg FRANE at EGKK).  In VCA we have codes such as '.vca s ' that allows sqks to be set and '.vca i ' that sets initial altitudes for SIDs.  But there is obviously some code that allows each SID to be assigned to a runway.  What is it?  Info is a tad light here.  Thanks
