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!

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?
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)
