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,
      I want to use tower view, but whenever I upgrade EuroScope to the latest beta version, EuroScope breaks (the settings configuration cannot source any files). If I reinstall EuroScope with the latest stable version, then everything's back to normal. Has anyone had any luck with using the beta version correctly?
      I'm also encountering this error when starting EuroScope:

      Thanks,
      Will

      Hi peeps,
      Logged on this evening to BB_APP.  Went to load the UKCP, was greeted by a message saying there was a newer version.  Downloaded the latest version.  When I try to load the plugin in ES, I'm presented with the following error:
      Unable to create the logs folder, please contact the VATSIM-UK Web Department.
      [I could do just that, but I guess sharing the knowledge is more beneficial to more people]
      After I acknowledge the above error, I get another:
      EuroScopePugInInit function caused an exception in C:\Euroscope\UK\Data\Plugins\UKControllerPlugin.dll.
      FWIW, I had no issues setting up the vSMR plugin.
      TIA,
      Any ideas? @Andy Ford @Calum Towers
      S..

      Is there a way to reopen the ATC chat box in euroscope? (.msg ATC)?
      I'm an OBS at the time of asking this.

      I came across the following on another forum this morning :
      "The Board of Governors recently voted unanimously to remove the following seldom-used clients from the approved clients list:
         The following pilot clients are apparently being removed from the approved application list
       Squawkbox
          Squawkbox747
          Squawkbox for Fly!
          XConnect
          FSInn
          ASRC
          SPARC
      I have no date for the changes as yet"
      Can someone on this forum please confirm that Xsquawkbox will NOT be affected?   This is by far the most popular on the ever more frequently used X-Plane and is  more user friendly and generally easier to use than SWIFT which in my experience is  considered by people who have tried it to be (so far at least) over complex and difficult to use without a multi monitor setup.
       
      Thanks, Robin
