  1. Hi George,

    Anyway, is there a way to create one single FPL, to include an airport to descend in between?

    The short answer is 'no'. EFB has a built-in 'flight phase recognition' to automatically detect takeoff, climb, cruise, descent and landing. After landing a flight plan is considered as complete and the flight log will be created. There is no way to circumvent this logic.

  2. Hi Pascal,

     

    I assume you are talking about different 'Windows users' when you login to Windows.

     

    If you install EFB into the default location, it will be installed into the current user's documents folder. If you later login to Windows with a different user, EFB cannot access the documents folder of the user who has installed EFB. The solution would be to uninstall EFB and then re-install it using a data folder which can be accessed by both users (e.g. 'D:\Data\AivlaSoft\EFB2 ...).

    What do you mean with 'exclusion files'? Are you referring to the file 'BglSceneryExclude.txt'?

     

    When you run the DbBuilder with the exclusion files and the airport does not show up correctly, did you already have a look at the airport's info dialog to see the priority list of the BGL-files in use for this airport?

     

    You may also create a support-file from the Server and upload it here. Maybe then we can see what happens.

    Overlay traffic patterns?

    If you mean any VFR related patterns, then the answer is 'no'. EFBv2 is mainly an IFR related software.

    Show a terrain profile with altitude restrictions?

    EFBv2 shows a vertical profile from any approach procedure where you can see the check altitudes but without a 'side-view' from the underlying terrain. Again, it's mainly an IFR related tool. However terrain is depicted on the lateral view as contour lines in two different modes.

    Show flight trax so that when MSFS inevitably crashes, I can fly to the exact location where the crash occurred?

    When MSFS (or any other supported simulator) crashes, the aircraft symbol and all flight plan related information remains visible, so you can see your last position. You can try this by simply quit your simulator while EFB Server and Client keep running.

     

     

  5. Hi Mike,

    I will try to answer your questions from the point of view of the manufacturer.

    I have a desktop running FSX on W10 plus a new laptop running W10 - both have plenty of grunt. I want to run FSX and EFB Server on the desktop with EFB Client on the Laptop. Networked through a router – all located within a couple of metres of each other.  Has anyone experienced any EFB networking issues with this sort of setup with W10 ? Plus any advice and comment please.

    Basically this is possible. EFB is designed to work in a LAN environment. Of course, and as always, only a test installation will finally answer whether it works in your environment with the plethora of individual network settings and configuration possibilities. I suggest to try the 30-day trial license, which allows you to test the fully functional software. There is no limitation compared to a purchased license except that the test license is only valid for the 30 days.

    Just one other question. The documentation says that FSUIPC must be installed on both Server and Client. Given that the Client will not be running FSX, at what stage do I do the FSUIPC install – and will the install work without finding FSX ? I suspect I may have misunderstood something somewhere but can anyone clarify this please ?

    The documentation does NOT say that FSUIPC must be installed on BOTH Server and Client. It must only be installed on the Servers computer, but not on each Client computer. FSUIPC is the interface to the simulator and therefore it is only required on the Servers computer. EFB Server always has to be installed on the computer where the simulator is installed. An EFB Client can be installed on the same computer as the Server, but it has not to be. Any Client can be installed on a separate computer within the same logical network.  The communication between the EFB Server and its Clients is done without any third-party-software, just Windows TCP stuff.

     

     

  6. Hello ??? (according to the forum rules, please sign your posts with your real first name. Thanks)

    This cannot be solved as long as X-Plane does not properly provide the callsign of an aircraft (in this case the blue ones). On your screenshot you will see that the 'callsign' of the blue A/C icon on the left side is 'AC03' which unfortunately does not match the callsign 'UAL494' of the red A/C. Without matching callsigns EFB cannot eliminate the duplicates.

  7. Hi Michael,

     

    I fear that this cannot be fixed other than switching to manual mode.

    When in automatic mode, EFB determines the active airport by the shortest distance between the aircraft and the ARP (Airport Reference Point) of all airports. The closest airport is taken as the active airport. If two airports are located so close to each other, EFB most probably will switch between these two airports when you taxi around. When starting up at another parking or gate it might be that the other airport is taken as the active airport.

  8. Today we released the update 2.2.126. It mainly consists of bug fixes which have been reported since the implementation of the new JSON data format for the VATSIM data stream download.

     

  9. Hi Umberto,

    I'm really sorry for not properly reading your question. Of course my suggestion above will not help ...

    What you are looking for is in the Server settings, where you can suppress the WebAPI calls to ActiveSky. This does not affect reading weather data from ActiveSky, it does only suppress loading the flight plan into ActiveSky, but also getting interpolated METARs for airports which are not listed in the data file "current_wx_snapshot.txt".  Please give it a try and let me know whether it helps to solve the issue on your system.

  10. Hello ??? (according to the forum rules, please sign your post with your real first name. Thanks)

    There are two parts to distinguish:

    1) automatically saving of the flight plan to <X-plane>\Output\FMS plans\EFB_current_gps.fms

    2) automatically load this flight plan into the default GPS

     

    #1 can be activated/deactivated in the A/C profile (see Profile Editor, tab "Options")

    #2 this function is NOT available for X-Plane (the flight plan must be loaded manually from within the cockpit)
