Re: New version for MSFS bug wont load

Something has obviously got out of sync or something has been left hanging from the uninstall.

Have you tried running the executable as administrator? It usually asks during install but try running it as admin from the start. Or maybe log into Windows as administrator and install it.

Re: Cannot see A2A P-40s and certain models of A2A T-6

What does it say in the monitor window when a plane is added?

Re: FS2020 Airplane flies sideways with SU6

Version 3.1.4 contains a fix for P3D/FSX which should be back to normal. FS2020 aircraft should now be in the correct orientation as well. However, while investigating this problem it has shed light on another issue that affects the aircraft orientation. Looks like it has been a little bit wrong sin...

Re: Feature Request List

Hello Peter, thank you for reply. The hint to the the Windows server is very useful for me. I don´t own a server but I'm sure to find somenone else in our community who owns a windows server :-) JoinFS uses very little resources so running multiple instances on the same machine is no problem at all...

Re: Feature Request List

Hello Peter, how can I create a permanent Hub? Is a migration on a server possible/necessary. Usually I create a Hub my PC and JoinFS must run, but I am not able to run my system 24/7. :-) Hi, You could run it on small laptop, but obviously that would need to be plugged in all the time. If you can ...

Re: Cannot join Hubs

Hi David, the plane orientations are a separate problem that I am working on.

Are you able to connect with your friends or the hub by one of their addresses? Just ask them what their "Me" address is.

Re: Cannot join Hubs

You need to make sure that your external IP address, https://www.myip.com/ , and port number 6112 are accessible from the internet and has a direct route to your PC on port 6112. Once that port number is visible to anyone on the internet then it should all work. Any router configurations that modify...

Re: FS2020 Airplane flies sideways with SU6

That's even stranger that using the different variables should be different between the sims. They should behave in exactly the same way. That's the whole point of having a common interface. Anyway, worst case scenario I could just do each method separately depending on which flight simulator you ar...

Re: FS2020 Airplane flies sideways with SU6

Thank you Peter. I haven't yet had a chance to check it out online, but the recorder function appears to almost work perfectly. Out of 6 hawks, 5 flew really well but one was standing on 1 wing and it's tail when taxi-ing in. Don't mean to be fussy, but can you explain why spitfires and Junkers 52 ...

Re: Unable to see aircraft

Does the missing aircraft appear in the JoinFS aircraft window?
Does the owner of the aircraft appear in the session window?

Anything unusual in the monitor window?

Re: New version for MSFS bug wont load

JoinFS uses the WiX Toolset to create the installer. There might be some help there.

Re: New version for MSFS bug wont load

You don't need to remove the old version. Just install the new version and it will update it automatically.

You can also try the test version, which is a separate application. https://joinfs.net/development.html

Re: FS2020 Airplane flies sideways with SU6

Great, that's a relief. Given that the orientation changes relatively slowly it may well appear just as smooth as the previous method. Anyway, as you say, let's hope there are no more surprises in future updates.

Re: FS2020 Airplane flies sideways with SU6

v3.1.3 has an attempted fix for this problem. Please keep an eye on how the orientation looks especially in sharp banks. There may be some snapping visible.

Re: FS2020 Airplane flies sideways with SU6

Switching the network off and on will just remove and re-add the aircraft with SimConnect so its initial position will be set to the correct orientation. However, from that point the ROTATION VELOCITY BODY variables are not able to update it. Could just set the orientation each time but it would no ...

It must be something to do with your network/router configuration, or network software such as an antivirus or something like that.

Re: FS2020 Airplane flies sideways with SU6

It's not a problem with the simulator - I suspect you're reading the data from SimConnect in a non-standard way. The "Transmitter" app I wrote that generates whazzup data for LittleNavMap uses the following library, which has not been effected: https://github.com/c-true/FsConnect Their wr...
