atc-software Behind The Scope Update

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon, 

As most of you know we used to run a controller Live Stream series called "Behind The Scope", this is where controllers would live stream on our YouTube channel. We are bringing this series back tomorrow night (2nd December) at 1800z. The plan is to run this every two weeks between 1800z and 2100z on Sunday evenings with around 2 or 3 controllers streaming in that slot. If you would like to stream, please get in touch by sending a ticket to marketing.*We have enough controllers for tomorrow*

Members wishing to stream must be:

S2 rated or higher;
A UK home member in good standing.
To ensure that the streams are of sufficient technical quality, members wishing to stream should also ensure the following:

Access to an UPLOAD speed of at least 2500 Kbps (2.5Mbps) - test my speed;
Hardware capable of streaming 720p at 30FPS.
 

Please feel free to ask any questions below.

Do we absolutely have to be S2 or higher...? I've done a couple of Vatsim streams on my channel... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQpbcIq2pmJ7l93MzTfleog

When we originally decided on this requirement, it was because Behind the Scope is not just about showing what your controlling, but also to some extent explaining why you are doing what you do. As Loui has alluded to, S1 is not competency based which means Marketing has absolutely no idea how skilled you are as a controller - whereas those with an S2 will meet a certain threshold and more importantly be beginning to develop skills on being more independent with their decisions. 🙂

I see. Fair enough!

      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!

      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.
