atc-software Question about Downloading Sector Files

Recommended Posts

James van Hankins

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!

IIRC, ES will download UK_ZZZZ.sct 


zzzz being the AIRAC.

You can either import the new sector file inside Euroscope, or delete the old files are rename the new ones to UK.SCT etc.

      Hi was wondering if anyone could provide a guide to setting up euroscope for the first time. Thanks

      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:

      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.
      Any ideas? @Andy Ford @Calum Towers

      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 for Fly!
      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
