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!

      Hi everyone,
      Hope you're all well.
      I was controlling earlier with no issues. But, I've just tried again, and now everytime I open EuroScope, it crashes to desktop. Event Viewer has identified it as the ntdll.dll file that is causing the issue.
      I've tried the usual restarting the PC and reinstalling ES, but that didn't work. Has anyone else come across this crash, and if so, have they managed to fixed it?
      Thanks,
      Will

      Hi everyone
      I'm sure this has probably been answered before so apologies if there is some repetition of the topic. I've set up my ES to automatically download the UK sector file updates but I don't think it automatically installs them...
      Am I supposed to do something when the file has downloaded? Would someone mind replying with a step by step style instruction so I can get it updated? :) In particular, the FRANE departures from Gatwick are missing for me so wanted to update to the correct version.
      Thank you in advance!

      So i have no idea whats happened with my Euroscope. I was using it this evening, everything seemed to work fine.
      I closed it after use - no issues. Meanwhile  i ran an update on iTunes and Apple Updater. (not sure if this is relevant, just adding it to show that i didnt do anything else in between)
      I came back to Euroscope after an hour.
      First odd issue, I had a shortcut on my start menu to euroscope. This didnt open it in the way it normaly does, instead i started to try and install Euroscope, however it seems to fail giving me the following error:

       
      So I cancel and go direct to where ES is installed - C:\Program Files (x86)\EuroScope - ES opens fine, presenting me with my usual option of opening a profile file i.e MANCHESTER COMBINED .prf or GENERIC COMBINED .prf
      When i select (for eg.) GENERIC, my ES open up in the 'vanilla' seup as below:

      I get a message with  the following:


      etc etc
      I have no idea whats happened. I'm trying to avoid a complete re-install of ES and all my plugins as i really dont want to have to lose all my settings.
      Anyone have any idea whats happened here? 
      Thanks for any help!

      UKCP is allocating the wrong squawks to VFR traffic departures leaving the Control Zone at EGGD. It is using the Radar Use ones (5050-5077 except 5070) and not 5070 used for all zone departures.VFR circuits all use 7010 [EGGD vMAT2]

      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!
