  1. I was really expecting that reply. But due to the lack of feedback from the authors I tried here, "just in case". As I said, I appreciate your time to read and reply this post. Thanks so much. Bests,
  2. Hello, I'm not very sure if I should be asking for help here. But I asked for support both in the FSAirlines forum and with a private support ticket more than a month ago and no reply, nor solution, has been provided yet. So I also ask here just in case I can get any clue on how I could make the FSAirlines Client run in P3D v2.2, or v2.3. I'm running FSUIPC 4.936 with P3DVersion: 2.2.10438.0. I tried P3D v2.3, but I got some incompatibility issues with some of my addons and decided to go back to 2.2. When I set the FSAirline client to use FSUIPC as the communication method it detects my simulator as "X-Plane 9", which obviously is incorrect and won't let me to register my flights. If I set the FSAirline to use Simconnect then I get an "Unkown version" for the simulator with the following error: SimConnect:2.2 [ needed: 10.0] I'm running Windows 8 on a Mac Pro 2013 (no chance of installing Windows 7 on newer Mac Pros) and I only use Windows for flying simulation, so only simulation-related software is installed. Any help or hint will be much appreciated, although I know that I am asking help for a 3er party application and, very likely, you won't be able to help much. But thanks so much for your interest anyway. Kindest regards,

    TOPER Tool (Boeing 777) - Support

    I found the cause of my error. I was entering mercury inches in the QNH instead of HPa.... Doh!!! But even if it was my error, what about a "nice" and "polite" warning of the type: "The input is out of range. Please, check you are introducing HPa and not mercury inches" instead of the "ugly" unhandled errors? Bests,

    TOPER Tool (Boeing 777) - Support

    Hi, TOPER is EXTREMELY buggy. I can get the performance data in some airports but sin some others is completely impossible. I get a hateful "Unhandled exception" "Index was outside the bounds of the array" most of the times. What about a HUMAN description of the error so that we may know what is wrong? Using a database of the airports is very handy because we only have to input the ICAO code to get the data. But what about when a runway changes its number due to magnetic variation? How can we possible know we are inputting an inexistant number in the database? What if we use an airport not included in the database? I'm thinking for example in ZULS Lhasa Gongar (Tibet) which is not included in FSX by default. Maybe for those cases it could be useful to manually input the information of the runway, as in the first version. So, if I get one of those dreaded "Unhandled" erros I could manually input the runway data and make sure it's not a database mistake. Next you'll find the description of the error when using this input information: ARPT: KDEN RWY: 35R INTX: COND: DRY WIND: 360/11 KT OAT: 5 ºC QNH: 2991 HPa Takeoff Weight: 192598 KG Boeing 777-200ER/GE90-90B NOTE: I've tried versions 1.0, 2.0 beta, 2.0.2 and 2.0.3 Error: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- See the end of this message for details on invoking just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box. ************** Exception Text ************** System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array. at PerformanceCalculatorTemplate1.Form1.btnCalc_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.OnClick(EventArgs e) at System.Windows.Forms.Button.OnClick(EventArgs e) at System.Windows.Forms.Button.OnMouseUp(MouseEventArgs mevent) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmMouseUp(Message& m, MouseButtons button, Int32 clicks) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.ButtonBase.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.Button.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.OnMessage(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam) ************** Loaded Assemblies ************** mscorlib Assembly Version: 4.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 4.0.30319.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- TOPER B777 Assembly Version: 2.0.3.0 Win32 Version: 2.0.3.0 ---------------------------------------- Microsoft.VisualBasic Assembly Version: 10.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 11.0.50938.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- System Assembly Version: 4.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 4.0.30319.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- System.Core Assembly Version: 4.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 4.0.30319.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- System.Windows.Forms Assembly Version: 4.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 4.0.30319.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- System.Drawing Assembly Version: 4.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 4.0.30319.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- System.Runtime.Remoting Assembly Version: 4.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 4.0.30319.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- System.Configuration Assembly Version: 4.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 4.0.30319.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- System.Xml Assembly Version: 4.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 4.0.30319.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- System.Windows.Forms.resources Assembly Version: 4.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 4.0.30319.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- mscorlib.resources Assembly Version: 4.0.0.0 Win32 Version: 4.0.30319.18408 built by: FX451RTMGREL ---------------------------------------- ************** JIT Debugging ************** To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this application or computer (machine.config) must have the jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

  6. Thanks for the suggestion Volker. I guess you're talking about the nearest airports when clicking on the red plane simbol in the GPS window. But what I'm talking about is considering an alternate ON THE GROUND, before the actual flight is started, as part of the planning. Tha'ts essential for accuratelty calculating the right fuel ammount. I'm afraid I'm not able to find a way to find alternates with a specific runway length and get how far they are; which is exactly what I would like FSC to do. Thanks for your time anyway. Bests,
  7. I've been recently using ATC-Pro and it DOES include the Transition Altitudes. ATC-Pro is based on Navigraph cycles so that makes me wonder why ATC-Pro can offer that information but FSC doesn't. Thans for reading. Bests,
  8. Hi, I've been trying ATC-Pro recently and it includes an AMAZING feature: you can define what's the minimun length bor both departure and landing of each aircraft. Then, when planning your trip, you can filter the airports according to those limites. For instance, if you look for a departure or arrival airport with a runway shoter than specified for the aircraft selected that airport won't even show up in the list. But the feature I've felt in love with is that once an destination airport has been selected it allows you to find two alternates within a user defined distance. What's more. It even allows you to filter airports with or without. As I said... THATS AMAZING!!! I simply LOVE that feature. Right now I'm "jumping" from ATC-Pro to FSC, but then I though... wouldn't it be great if FSC could do that!!! So... here's my suggestion... As FSC, ATC-Pro is alse based on Navigraph AIRAC, and that's what gives me hope that this feature could be implemented. Thanks fot taking it into consideration!!! Bests,
  9. Hello Volker, Thanks for the tip. But that requires typing and what I was thinking of was using a method where only the mouse was needed. But thanks for taking the trouble to reply and thinking of that workaround. Bests,
  10. I like to create my own "weird" routes not followed by any airline in real life. So I've spent may hours "playing" with FSC to create my custom routes. One of the things that would save A LOT of time would be to be able to add airways by clicking on them. I mean. What I do so far is: Choose my departure airport. Have a look at the SIDs available Choose the most likely to be assigned by ATC according to my route. Choose as the first waypoint of my route the last one of the SID. Luckly most of the time that point is common to all the runways available, which simplifies things. Now... here comes the "tricky" part. I follow the airway of my first waypoint until an intersection in which I will need to change airway. Then I add that second waypoint to my route. But FSC is not "intelligent" enough as to guess I want to follow that ariway instead of making a "direct". So I have to manually insert the airway between those waypoints. But if airways were "clickable" I could: 1. Add my first waypoint 2. Add the airway I will follow 3. Add the intersection where I'll be changing my airway 4. And so on and so forth. Of course I'm not ASKING or DEMANDING anything. It's just a suggestion. It can be taken into consideration or not... Just up to you :smile: Bests,
  11. Ups... I wrote it the other way round!!! Thankfully you managed to understand my point :smile: I was afraid that was the reason... But because I was not able to find that information anywhere else I decided to ask. Thanks for clarifying this matter. I had noticed altitude restrictions showing in some plans, even in SIDs. That what made me think a "Departure Window" similar to the arrivals was possible. Thats a pitty... At least Route Finder is integrated within FSC interface :smile: Thanks so much for taking the time to reply my enquiries. Kindest regards,
  12. Hi, I've been making a search in the forum about the topics included in the title of this post but I haven't been able to find the information I'm interested in. So I open this new thread. I do apologize if I write about topics dealt with before. FSC is for me as an essential part of a flight as FSX itself. I could not imagine my life as a virtual pilot without it. However, over the time I've found some features missing and I'd like to point them out just in case they can be taken into consideration for the development of future versions: Departure WIndow: That feature is AMAZING. I have access to official Jeppenson charts. But for most of the times I find that the Departure Window offers me all the information I need for my arrivals. But there's not such a window for Departures. Wouldn't it be great to have them both, SIDS and STARS? Transition Altitude: Even if a Departure window was added, I would still need to use charts to check the Transition altitude, Minimum Decision Height and Maximum Approach speeds. I haven't been able to find out if that information is available in the AIRACS with which FSC and oder addons are updated, so maybe I'm asking fot the impossible. But just in case, I wanted to ask. Adding SIDS and STARS to Auto-generated flight plans Most of the times, FSC makes and outstanding job when auto generating flight plans. But those autogenerated plans do not always follow a SID or STAR. They do sometimes, but not always. So, most of the times I use RouteFinder for that task. Again, it would be great if I could "force" FSC to use the last point of a SID as my first route waypoint and a IAF or any other STAR waypoint as the last one. Thanks so much for taking my words into consideration and, once again, I'm sorry if I'm arising topics already covered in the past. Kindest regards,
  13. Thanks so much for your kind replies. I'm preparing 41 stages for a Concorde World Tour. There's a HUGE difference in Concorde's fuel consumption depending on doing supersonic or subsonic flight, so I need to know, quite accurately, what's the distance of the subsonic legs. For example, one of the stages is: FTTJ KELOT UA403 DINTA UR778 TONBA UM215 UPLIT UM732 MEGAN UM740 RONAB UL12 VELAD UT378 DOBIM UM616 PIGOS UM733 CLM LFPG The subsonic flight starts some 50 miles before PIGOS, so I need to know what the distance is between PIGOS and destination (LFPG) The measurement tool helps, but I was wondering if there was a direct way to add up all the partial distances of a segment. Creating a new "partial" flight plan is another option; but I need to find an airport close to where I need the subsonic stage to begin, because a route cannot have an intersection or a VOR as an start point or end. Thanks for your suggestions, though. Bests,
  14. I'd like to find an easy way to calculate the distance of two intermediate points of a route. Image a route A, B, C, D, E and that I'd like to know what the distance is between B and D. Is there any direct way to do so? And if not... I think that could be a nice feature for future releases. Thanks so much
