  1. Vic, I don't know why but I have an approx 50% success rate with the automatic launch of speech recognition. When it fails to launch I hear the clicks when I press and release left shift but no words appear in the window and it is obvious that the program does not hear me. When I launch speech recognition manually I have a 100% success rate. My system is Windows 10 Pro, version 1607, OS build 14393.693, 64 bit. I guess having a 50% hit rate is going to make an investigation almost impossible. W
  2. Mike, I'm glad my suggestion helped you to enjoy Vic's brilliant piece of software. w
  3. Mike, I only joined the party at T3D so I don't know anything about T2011 speech recognition, but for Pro it works well for me when I start my Windows 10 speech recognition from the control panel before I start Pro. Have you tried that?
  4. watsonjd, i do not know what nolli1962's mistake was but when I had the same problem last week the advice given in this forum was to run the tower3d.exe file as an administrator and that fixed it for me.
  5. Real Traffic desperately needs updating, but as far as I'm aware Nyerges Design doesn't have a forum such as this where we can express our views. I hope Gabor reads this and can give us his thoughts on updating RT airlines & schedules. In RT there are nearly 200 US Air flights at KPHL but the only person using that livery and the Cactus callsign is Tom Hanks!
  6. You can tweak the schedules in RT you simply edit the schedule.txt file in the extensions/airfields folder for the airport using Notepad or WordPad. It is really easy. I also edit the terminal.txt files in the same way.
  7. Make sure RT installs to your 3D Pro folder not the legacy 3D folder.
  8. RickyJ, You are correct with your assumptions of the handover of aircraft between Ground & Tower controllers. But there are a few wrinkles around the world. 1. If an aircraft taxiing with Ground has to cross the active runway it should switch to Tower to request clearance to cross, then report runway vacated and switch back to Ground. 2. At some airports this frequency switch is negated by the aircraft staying on Ground, requesting clearance to cross, then Ground coordinates with Tower, approves the crossing, aircraft reports vacated, Ground informs Tower. 3. At a smaller number of airports permission is also required to cross inactive runways. It has been a long time since I went to KSAN so I don't know if they use option 1 or option 2 for north side traffic.
  9. I like the addition of the wind indicator in Pro but the arrow is 180 degrees out. The arrow should point into wind not point downwind. So if the needle is pointing at, say, 270 then a runway closest to 27 should be in use. But in Pro if the needle points at 270 then runway 09 should be in use which is counter intuitive.
  10. I gave tech advice! My grandchildren won't believe me!
  11. Where else do you get customer service this good? Many thanks to Vic & the team.
  12. How to kill the Sticky Keys pop up: when the annoying box pops up, click on the hyperlink to go to 'Set up Stick Keys' then ensure that the box next to 'Turn on Sicky Keys if shift is pressed 5 times' is unchecked. That's it. Done.
  13. That's a pity. If the real word airports would only consider landing over the top of lined up aircraft followed by aircraft taking-off over other aircraft in their landing roll (like some crazy aviation version of leap frog) just think how much they could increase their capacity!! ??? But count me out! I'd switch to trains ?
  14. This may already have been posted but I don't recall reading it .... .... in "Statistics" the Controlled Hours time is still stuck at zero as it was in 'normal' T3D.
  15. If you have Real Traffic, look in the FeelThere / Tower3!D Pro / Extensions / Airfields folder, then in each individual airfield folder is the same file with a slightly different name, e.g. kphl_airlines.txt, or klax_airlines.txt etc. The data is from Nyerges but is woefully out of date so I have edited my own files, including the terminal and schedule files, to bring my Tower as up to date as possible. The Nyerges lists are not in alphabetical order which doesn't help much. If you don't have Real Traffic I can't help much other than a steer to the online manual which lists 15 ficticious airlines, but it seems from your post that you already know that. If I was to make a guess I'd hazard that you are in the tower at TIST, seeing KAP, and hearing Cair which is the callsign for Cape Air and their fleet of Cessnas. I hope I've helped rather than wasted your time or made things worse!
  16. If you Google 'Kaspersky how to add trusted application' there are simple instructions with pictures that even I could follow. It's best that I don't give computer tech advice?
  17. Hi Bill, I have all the available add-ons installed in Pro and they all work. Just beware that some of the installation packages auto direct to the wrong folder so I had to select the correct the install to the folder containing Pro.
  18. Doc, I have tried 2 different layouts for multi-monitor, I have yet to decide which I prefer. Here are a couple of screenshots. The change between each monitor is down the left edge of the ADIRS display.
  19. I have tried a couple of versions of multi-monitor use and I have yet to decide which one I prefer. One is with the STRIP/ADIRS/DBRITE on one monitor and the 'view' on the other screen; the other style is to drag the 'view' window larger to display it across 2 screens with the other windows on top as it was in the standard version. I shall keep testing until I choose a winner. Any recommendations out there?
  20. There is definitely a problem at KSAN with the aircraft scraping along the ground without wheels. Here are a couple of screenshots:
  21. PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!!! My problems were solved in 2 stages. First, I ran the .exe as an administrator and now I can hear the pilots' voices. So thanks to those that gave me that advice! Secondly, it seems my Kaspersky Total Security package was preventing voice input until I 'trusted' towerspeakbridge.exe and now it works most of the time (once I get voice control working it will continue working throughout my session but sometimes at the very start of the session it takes 4 or 5 attempts before Pro realises I am talking to it!) I have accidentally found a way to have the pilots' voices in my headset but all other sounds through my surround sound speaker system. If someone who is more tech savvy than me (that's pretty much all of you) can explain how better to do this I'm all ears but right now I launch Pro with my surround sound as default but before starting a session I select my headset as default and strangely, to me anyway, I get the split effect I just mentioned.
  22. After using Tower!3D standard for many months without a problem I have changed to Pro but I have sound problems. I cannot hear any of the calls made by the pilots. I hear the engine sounds, the waves etc but nothing from the pilots. I have Windows 10 with the TTS set to "Microsoft David Desktop - English (United States)" and speech recognition set to"Microsoft Speech Recogniser 8.0 for Windows (English - US) but no voices heard at all. When I select "Test speech" I hear nothing. Also, I can use voice recognition without problems for anything other than Pro but in Pro I seem to be wasting my time trying to talk to aircraft. When I select "Test recog" nothing happens. Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?
  23. mc16v, I emailed BMT Micro customer service cservice@bmtmicro.com and they were very helpful. w
  24. Since the release of Pro I have had many problems downloading Pro and the updated add-ons from Nyerges Design. But the BMT Micro customer service team & Gabor at Nyerges Design have been so very helpful. If anyone reading this has problems downloading I would urge them to make contact with these superbly helpful people. After numerous problems I have just downloaded Pro and the updated add-ons and will soon join the Pro party.
  25. My $10 discount email from BMT Micro is in my inbox. Now how long will it be until I can use it? Hopefully in time to wipe out any chores this weekend!
