Xplane and XPUIPC

Postby Wayne Pierce » 07-05-2012 08:43 AM

To; Gentlemen and all pilots.

From Training;

After some testing being done by our very capable and hardy test pilots, pushing the envelope...

The flight program of X-plane can be used for flights and the recorded flights sent for grading using our recorder program.
One must correctly install a version of the XPUPIC available on this web site.

http://www.tosi-online.de/XPUIPC/Home.html

The user does so without any technical help from AAV.

Thanks

Wayne

Can we say that X-Plane is now officially supported by AAV?

I believe these tests have been carried out on one platform only at this stage. That being Microsoft Windows. Before we can go much further there needs to be further investigation into what other platforms will it work on.

1. Does it work on Apple Mac, and what programs are required? Can our flight recorder work on the Mac or do you have to use something like VMWare running a windows virtual machine to run the recorder in?

2. Same as 1 only using a Unix computer.

The above 2 would probably see a wider use of X-Plane than windows computers.
If you have either of the above configurations could you have a go to see what you can get working?

The next of course is to add "Xacars" which would support X-Plane.

So as you can see we have a way to go yet.

Regards
Barry

x-plane does not run well on my mac because I have a mac mini. It would of run fine on a normal mac. Anyway, I have received the 8 dvd disks of x-plane global and installed it on my windows box. Let me say it is outstanding. Let me also say it will take some time to learn. I have got most of the basics programmed on my joystick, like quick looks and brakes, and the basic plane maneuvers. I don't have many planes yet but I heard you can find them. I will look on our downloads to see what we have.

The ground graphics are wonderful. The cars move and look great on the road, especially, at night. I am very impressed with the clouds. I look forward to spending more time with it this week and can't wait to submit my first FREP with it. The first day was great!

Tom, Go to X-Plane.org and look for the Best of the Month competition. That will give you really nice planes and sceneries. Theres other resources there that may be appealing to you.

Im off X-Plane right now, because XSquawkbox does not run in 64 bits... :cry: Hopefully someone will create a VATSIM tool soon
