Hi, 

I have encountered a problem when trying to install the UK Controller Plugin. When I am trying to load the plugin in the Euroscope plugin setting pages, the pop up message that shown: EuroScopePlugInInit function caused an exception in the plugin file. Any way to solve this? Thanks

Could you please attach a screenshot of the full exception, and confirm you have followed the installation steps found here. Including  having installed the Visual C++  Ridistributable package?

I did follow all the installation steps and installed the Visual C++  Ridistributable package.

Same issue here, can confirm it is non-ASCII related. Installed in other path with ASCII characters and it worked. Loaded but didn't seem to work properly (no squawks set etc.)

Did you get the API warning when you started the plugin? If you got that, squawks won't be set because we don't just let random plugin installs assign squawks, we require you to authenticate the plugin with us, which is a separate issue (did you follow the setup guide on the VATUK website?) ?

Just to confirm this is still on my todo list to look at!

I set it up a bid weirdly so here it goes:

Error=EuroscopePluginInit 

On my main user (Greek characters) is Euroscope with all the sector files installed + the API token. If I just load the dll from a folder within thaf User, the error mentioned above will appear.

Now if I save just the dll on another User (ASCII characters), Euroscope loads it, the warning appears and the plugin seems to work. I can't remember if I reauthenticated the dll with the API on my main user. However,  when I restarted EuroScope and loaded another profile/sector, the same error appeared when I tried to load the dll from the ASCII user.

If you want me to try anything else, let me know.

Cool, thanks for the detailed report! I'm planning to look at the ASCII issues this weekend ? If the API key doesn't work (and is stored under a non-ASCII directory), that's also probably related ?

any update on this @Andy Ford?

Life has been busy as of late so I've not been able to spend as much time on it as I would like.

I've identified how to fix the issue, I just need time to do it.

(On that note, if anybody is partial to a bit of C++, then they're welcome to give it a go!)

I have now made the fixes required (and boy, there were a lot). They'll go out next release: https://github.com/VATSIM-UK/uk-controller-plugin/pull/99

If anyone who's affected by the issue is available for a test run (there's only so much I can do on my own machine), hit me up on Slack!

I'll grab it and see how my machine responds

i cant download api from website why ? can anyone help

You don't need to download the API, just the plugin. The API is hosted for you by VATUK ?

      Unfortunately, I have now had enough. I have tried so hard over the last 5 months to pursue other avenues. This forum post is genuinely the last thing I wanted to write on a network that is built by and sustained by volunteers. But at the top of VATSIM UK and above it, it is clear that it is nigh on impossible to get anyone to care. Perhaps it is just me? Nope, I know - and I’m not asking you to speak up publicly, I’m happy to do it - that there are others who are fed up of being ignored.
      From the moment a new Division Director was appointed in the UK, I was waiting for an Operations vacancy to open up. I was actually the first Operations Manager (it was called then), before losing interest in VATSIM as I moved on to University. I was excited to come back and contribute in something that I know I’m good at, so as soon as lockdown began, I enquired as to the plan. There wasn’t one. As you may have noticed, I’ve been back for a while and I just can’t get enough.
      The thing that’s missing though is an Operations department to thrive. Our previous Division Director has told me that they had enough to do in that role alone. Being a leader is about delegating. It is about encouraging people to contribute, the glue that holds the division together strategically and into the future. But where is ours? A leader doesn’t hog, on a volunteer network. A leader doesn’t keep an I3 badge when they don’t have time to instruct. A leader says hello sooner than 3 weeks after their appointment. A leader involves themselves in events and day-to-day division life. But how does our current one manage 4 roles at once (5 if you include the DDD!)? 
      I don’t think they can. My tickets, emails and PMs are invariably ignored, responded to months later - sometimes Slack even archived them before they were replied to! Myself and others have waited weeks and weeks to even be given approval to start on a new document. We contributors often wait until the night before AIRAC release to have our Pull Requests reviewed for the sector file, leaving no time to make changes in time for release. I struggle to receive even an acknowledgement that a document has been received and is in the queue for review.
      I genuinely love Ops and this division. I’ve tried putting my absolute all into document creation, Spotlight posts, the like, with absolutely no reward other than the odd thanks. That’s fine - I don’t want a reward. But when I offer to help more formally, it falls on deaf ears. An email where I, in effect, formally complained got a response just under 4 weeks after I sent it. I was reassured by the Region Director that Ops would be appointed ‘soon’ - this was now over a month ago. An email I received nearly 4 weeks ago from the DD promised a more regular line of communication to discuss procedures and documents. I replied within days saying that sounded like a great idea! Guess what... no reply since! 
      Yet, I receive a review on a pull request, 3 months after it was submitted, last night?!

       
      Let’s wrap this up. Active suppression of volunteerism is what this division is now about apparently. Not everywhere, of course. All staff - including the DD - put their all into this place. Training, Web, Marketing and Member Servcies should all be applauded for what they do - at times we all disagree with things, but they are volunteers who quite frankly deserve more praise.
      But our DD doesn’t recognise when it’s time to let others help. I’ve sent my blueprint for Ops to them, because I have ideas to get YOU involved - the airfield info update project, which I’ve just started without ‘approval’, is the first of them. I don’t even want to be on the DSG (powerless ‘Manager’ would be fine), and I wouldn’t even mind if someone else got Ops Director... as long as it meant I could get a reply from them! 
      This isn’t what the network is about. I’m tired of 5 months of offering to help, of waiting. It shouldn’t be like this, and I’ve tried so hard via the UK and Europe. I’ve run out of steam. And so I wanted you to know about it.
       
      (P.S. If I’ve blown my chances of being ‘respected’ by the ‘old boys club’ management, then of course I’m sad, but not surprised. I love this network and have only ever tried to help. May this be my last attempt!)

      Real-world EGLL AIP does not explicitly prohibit fixed-wing VFR traffic:
       However here on VATSIM VFR in the Inner zone is only allowed for helicopters. Any reasons for that?

      Morning!
      Everyone knows internet forums were invented by the Romans in the year 23BC.  Fast forward a couple of millenia and we're still using them to this day; or are we?
      Back in the day, we used to sign on to www.vatsim-uk.org/forums which through domain changes, a community emphesis and the like became what we know and love today - community.vatsim.uk.
      I'm aware the Division uses slack and have done so for quite some time.  However, I'm notincing of late more and more emphasis on and reliance of the use of Slack.
      I believe this is to the detriment of the esprit de corps of the community. Firstly, I, and many others don't use Slack, so the potential exists for information and discussion to be missed.  Secondly, I get the impression that the balance of community discussion is shifting towards Slack, leaving this very forum less active with less content and potential delegation to the position of Slack's poorer cousin.  Like I say, I'm not on Slack so potentially my impression could be wide of the mark.
      I guess what I'm saying is please can we look at the possibility of promoting the forum as the 1st port of call for community discussion and leave Slack as more of project management/task allocation platform?
      Cheers,
      S.

      Hi all
       
      Just like to say well done to all the controllers tonight for another fantastic Mid Week Gatwick event, really enjoyed the short flight from EGHQ .... although I did scare the TMA controller who thought I was holding wrong when infact the Aerosoft A330 flew it correctly which was  parallel entry into the hold. They must have improved the Holds in the latest patch lol ....can't wait till the next event.
      Thanks again all roll on the next one

      Posting this as I can't use the feedback form (requires individual CID and the controllers are all offline now).
       
      Thanks for a great event. Special thanks to EGPH and EGCC controllers, MAN and Scottish Control North of Edinburgh. Bounced around EGCC, EGPH and EGPE in a KA350 and it was very good fun.
