What is STB Data Server (STB-DS) and where to find it.

Recommended Posts

SuperTrafficBoard Client (STB) can be run on the same computer as your simulator, or on a different computer.  The reason you may want to run it on a separate computer is related to simulator full screen mode.  If simulator full screen is required (for Prepar3D this means "blackout desktop"), you must run STB on a separate computer.  Otheriwse you might want to run STB on a separate computer if you are short of screen space on your simulator computer.

In order to operate on a separate computer STB  needs a supply of additional information beyond that obtained by normal means (i.e. from the simulator using SimConnect).  This is where SuperTrafficBoard Data Server (STB-DS) comes into play: this free of charge utility runs on your simulator computer and provides the additional information required by the STB Client.

Several versions of STB-DS are available, corresponding to the major versions of STB and simulators.  The installer for STB-DS can be downloaded from the following links, please choose those appropriate to your environment:

(Note: Standalone refers to FSX Steam Edition being installed on a computer that does not already contain Microsoft Flight Simulator X.)

If the version or simulator you require is not list above, please contact us for further assistance.  Full details of how to set up both STB and STB-DS can be found in the STB User Guide.
