    Double VOR Entries

    According to the answer of the fsAerodata developer, the issues with the airports L94, P48, 37XA, and DAOF will be fixed with the upcoming 1808 cycle this Thursday.

    Double VOR Entries

    After some investigation it seems that some of the fsAerodata BGL files contain erroneous runway identifiers. I'm already in touch with the developer so no further action on your side is currently required. I will let you know about the required proceeding.

    Continuing frustrations of Port 13

    Reaching time servers can be difficult. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. That's a fact. If you 'google' for 'time servers' or 'ntp servers' you will see what I mean Try to change the name of the server and most probably the result becomes worse. I guess that accessing time.windows.com from a Windows operating system is most probably privileged.

    Setting Departure in flight plan

    Sorry, that was me misreading your post. Of course, the DEP button on the RSB opens the PROCedure window too. You're right.

    X-Plane next please

    It's too early to say how long it takes. We just have released EFB v2 and we are still working on bug fixes and minor improvements. It will be announced when we can reliably say how long it will take.

    Lost license key EFB1

    It's named AivlaSoft, not Aviasoft. Thanks. Please try again using the correct email address as displayed here: https://www.aivlasoft.com/support/index.html and/or here: https://forum.aivlasoft.com/topic/1719-license-key-lost/

    Double VOR Entries

    Some additional information: It might be that the one is a VOR and the other is just a DME. You won't see it on the screen because the symbols are at the same position superimposed by each other. From the label you can't distinguish it because both have the same content. The two navaids "RODOS" are also not at the same position. There is a slight difference. The other navaids "DALAMAN" seems to be at the same position but you could verify it better when selecting the option "Show navaid position as decimal value" in the Client's settings ("Miscellaneous tab"). As long as two (or more) navaids at the "same" position are not really different in type, name, identifier, frequency, EFB will always display all of them.

    Error on building DATABASE

    Very good, thanks.

    Error on building DATABASE

    On the Database-Builder window, press the button on the right side of the yellow text box and then navigate to the installation folder of FSX-SE ( C:>Program Files (x86)>Steam>steamapps>common>FSX ). Before pressing the "Next" button, please make another screenshot, then press Next. Select your navdata provider, then press "Finish". Now the building process for a new database will start. It still might be that a lot of errors will be generated, because that's what Jonas already pointed out, maybe many of the paths in the file "scenery.cfg" could be wrong. But first, please try creating a new database and then let us know the result. And please don't forget to upload the screenshot before pressing "Next". Thanks.

    Error on building DATABASE

    First of all, It seems that the path to the installation folder of your FSX-SE is not correct. This path initially comes from the registry database, or (very seldom, when not found therein) it has to be selected by the user. Can you please do the following: 1) Quit EFB Client, quit EFB Server, quit EFB Database Builder 2) Delete the following file C:\Users\Juergen\Documents\AivlaSoft\EFB2\Server\Settings\serverSettings.txt 3) Start the "Database-Builder" 4) Select the first (most left) tab named "Create / Select EFB Database" 5) In the list of databases, select (if any) the database and press "Delete". When no database is available anymore, the "Create new database" dialog will open automatically. 6) On the dialog "Create new database", "Step 1: ..." select the simulator type "FSX-SE" and then EFB is trying to read the installation folder from the registry. Can you provide a screenshot from this dialog?
  12. Basically the button "Set FPL" is greyed out if the aircraft in the simulator (or the latest know state of it when the simulator is not running or paused) is not at the currently active airport where you want to insert the selected SID into the FPL. The button is also not available when the aircraft (or the latest known state of it) is airborne. If you only change your aircraft's location in the simulator when the PROC dialog is already open, then you have to close and reopen the dialog once, otherwise the button does not become enabled. There is no constantly check of it due to performance considerations.

    Vatsim Traffic

    After many tests yesterday we could find one situation which prevents the traffic to be displayed. This bug is not only related to online traffic (VATSIM/IVAO), but also for the simulator's internally generated AI traffic, and/or externally generated traffic by other add-ons. Situation, where traffic is not displayed: If the EFB Server once has been connected successfully with the simulator and traffic was provided already (even if this was only for a few seconds) and you then restart the simulator only, while the Server is continuously running, then the Server will not get back in the state where it provides traffic, although it reconnects with the simulator and own aircraft data is provided properly. Workaround (until next update of the Server will be available): If you restart your simulator, while your EFB is already running, you also have to restart EFB.

    Can you please send me your key to 'support@aivlasoft.com' so I can check whether it is not accepted. Do not provide it herein!

    License Key

    Hi Gary, is your v1 key not accepted as a discount code while purchasing a v2 key, or did you try to install v2 with the v1 key?

    AirlineShort Setting

    Can you give it a try using SOUTHWEST instead of Southwest. I guess it's case sensitive.
  17. aivlasoft

    Time to Destination

    No, this is not implemented anymore because EFB has no performance data of all the aircraft which would be important for such calculations. A rough time calculation is only done for the next waypoint.

    Thoughts on v2

    I have constantly followed this thread but I intentionally did not jump in for obvious reasons. From my point of view the latest posts do not add any new information, they are just a repeating of the same objections. Therefore I decided to close this thread now. We will - of course - discuss these objections in the team and then we decide what and how and whether we will proceed. As an additional information I would like to say that we would be imprudent if we would not listen to our customers, but on the other hand, it's quite normal that a user might overrate the importance of its own objections and might tend to consider his problem as a problem of all customers. We do not play down the content of this thread, but our analysis of the last few years is telling us that the amount of users flying 'online' is just a small percentage of the entire amount of all our customers.

    Vatsim Traffic

    step by step: Vatsim sim traffic no issues when connected to vpilot and sim. OK, 'no issues' sounds good. However vpilot off no vatsim traffic on the ground. Also OK, as long as the simulator is still running, but you already have exited vPilot, no traffic is provided anymore. If I then disconnect flight sim vatsim traffic is back. OK, as soon as the simulator goes off, the static traffic (red) is displayed again. Reconnect sim vatsim traffic gone. OK, because only the simulator is running, but obviously vPilot not yet Sorry, but overall I don't see the problem.

    Continuing frustrations of Port 13

    I'm here, no question, and I have already written what I know about it in the FAQs. Additionally I can say that the amount of trial installations compared to the problem reports herein, is telling me that the problem is not related to the software itself, instead of some unpleasant, but mostly local problems. I fully agree that this is annoying and I already have had a look into the code whether it could be approved, but unfortunately it can't be changed without weakening the security. I guess they do not check the date externally, only local (which easily could be fooled).

    server error

    Vatsim Traffic

    Just some more thoughts and information in this regard: 1) Traffic depiction BEFORE connect vPilot (or IvAp): Data is taken and refreshed every 2 minutes from the VATSIM/IVAO online data servers. This is more or less static data and nobody can say how much the time delay is. That means that an aircraft, which is listed in this data download, and therefore will be depicted on the ground map only, might already be at another place, depending on the ground speed of that aircraft. Therefore this way of "looking for traffic" is always just a rough overview. 2) Traffic deptiction WHEN connected with vPilot (or IvAp): When connected with the network software, the above described 'static' data is no longer available. Now the data is injected into the simulator by the network client software (vPilot, IvAp). In this situation, the filter criteria from FSUIPC is relevant. If you have the free version, the range is set to 40NM around your aircraft's position. If you have the registered version, you can set the range individually within some limitations. Always check the respective settings in the network client software too. Always make sure that you "look" at the very same airport in EFB than your aircraft in the simulator is located at. If the airport selection mode in EFB is set to "A" (automatic) then this should be fulfilled, but if the mode is "M" (manual) and you have selected any other airport than the airport where your aircraft (in the simulator) is located, then you most probably will not see any traffic, although all your settings are correct. The range (horizontal and vertical) wherein traffic data is visible, is always related to the AIRCRAFT's position, and not to the currently active airport (except it's in "A" automatic mode). Bear in mind, that EFB is not a traffic viewer like many online websites where you can see all aircraft from a certain network. EFB is trying to show you traffic around YOUR AIRCRAFT. When opening the Traffic monitor from the Server's "System" menu, allow up to 2 or more minutes until traffic is visible. It depends on the amount of aircraft which is within the range. The more aircraft the more time is required to collect the data.

    EFB v2 offers the possibility to use "private" AFCAD-BGLs in a dedicated folder in the Server Root Directory. This has proofed necessary for mainly 3 reasons: 1. Some designers do not provide any ground layout due to the fact that their airport has sloped RWYs. RWYs in BGLs are always flat and therefore not suitable for Airports with sloped RWYs. 2. Some designers use ground-layouts with RWY and TWY width set to zero. This is mainly to avoid conflicting issues with RWY and TWY textures. 3. Some designers do not provide any ground-layout at all as they simply "paint" the airport to the scenery and use the underlying default ground layout. Users may contribute their own Custom Ground Layout BGLs where applicable. AivlaSoft will collect and verify all submitted BGLs and publishes them in this thread for individual download in zipped format if approved. Please make sure you understand the basic principles of their use. Whenever such a BGL is placed into the dedicated directory, it has the highest prority level and will therefore be used as ground layout in EFB v2. There is absolutely no influence on the installed add-ons. Please observe the following rules: 1. Only use such a custom ground layout IF YOU HAVE THE RESPECTIVE ADD-ON INSTALLED ! 2. SIMPLY UNZIP AND COPY THIS custom ground layout BGL INTO THE FOLLOWING FOLDER (default installation): C:\Users\<your name>\Documents\AivlaSoft\EFB2\Server\AFCAD ! 3. DO NOT COPY IT INTO ANY OTHER FOLDER, ESPECIALLY NOT INTO THE SCENERY FOLDER OF THE RESPECTIVE ADD-ON ! 4. After having inserted a "private" AFCAD, a rebuild of the database is necessary, as would be when adding a new Add-On (Database Builder, Tab "Update Simulator") Important Note: These "private" AFCAD Files will not be part of any basic installer of EFB v2. They need to be downloaded whenever required by the respective Add-On. Find below a list of all custom ground layouts with a description of the applicable Add-On/Provider and a dedicated downloadlink.

    EFB v2 offers the possibility to show Approach Minimums in the Approach Profile. For all approaches a set of standard minimums is included. It is however also possible to create individual tables for each airport. The complete description to create custom files is laid down in the User Guide "Client", in para 5.3.5 "Minimums configuration". A few individual Minimum Files are included in the Basic Installer of EFB v2. The location for the Minimum files is (default installation): C:\Users\<username>\Documents\AivlaSoft\EFB2\Client\Minima Whenever you feel that you want to share your Minimum File for a specific airport, please post it in this subforum. After a brief check for technical completeness we will publish a download link. We will however not check the file for its content. In this respect we will be fully relying to your abilities. If your installation consists of more than one client, make sure that you add Minimum Files to all Clients. Airport contributed by ..
