Client Beta 2.2.0

Post by joefremont » Sun Oct 02, 2016 7:57 pm

Hi Flyers, some of you may have noticed that I am working on a beta for the new client. Here are some of the updates that it includes.

v2.2.0.b1 2016/09/04
- Fixes for X-Plane 10 altitude speed bug using XPIUCP
- Fixes for long airport codes.

v2.2.0.b2 2016/09/05
- Additional fixes for long airport codes
- Fixes for private flights that were not recording.

v2.2.0.b3 2016/10/02
- Display alternate airport codes
- Fix upload of position log data and black box data.
- Disable parking brake penalty.

v2.2.0.b4 2016/10/30
- Landing Light Penalty Updates, New option to turn enable toggle for landing lights in client.
- Speed under 250kn penalty update, heavy jets now have limit of 300kn for first 15 minutes, plus 'High Speed Approved' button to disable penalty (5% reduction in rating when used).
- New penalty Navigation lights off
- New penalty altitude below 500ft
- New penalty hard landing.
- New option to disable all minor penalties (10% reduction in rating).
- FSX and FS9 plugins don't work so don't try to use them.

v2.2.0.b5 2016/11/13
- Simconnect navigation lights bug.
- Different penalty text for landing lights within 5nm of destination and below 5000 ft alg.
- Fixed reading of blackbox.xml file if present.

v2.2.0.b7 2017/01/16
- Fix bugs in landing weight warnings in the way land weight was calculated.
- Tried to fix bug that caused repair status to decrease to %33 on single engine aircraft. Added debug to figure get more information.

v2.2.0.b8 2017/02/20
- Fixed bug that caused client to crash when network connection lost.
- Fixed some issues with cheat detection that in one case was too aggressive, and tried to close a recently discovered whole.
- X-Plane Plugin for windows!, FSX/FS9 plugin may also be working but more testing is needed.

v.2.2.0.b9 2017/05/20
- Fixed two bugs in X-Plane Plugin, verified working in X-Plane 11
- Fixed some issues (again) with cheat detection that in one case was too aggressive, and tried to close a recently discovered whole.
- Updated internet library that we hope will be more stable.
- Added support for aircraft rentals.

This will be the last beta. Next release will be Release candidate 1.
Mac and Linux X-Plane plugin's are off the list for now unless we find a way to compile properly for XP-10/11

Hi Joe,

Thank you - looking forward to the penalty revisions. Would like to get that LearJet in the air without the penalty 8)

Cheers,
Scott

Great work Joe!

But small bug in 2.2.0.b4 - new client ignore events from my blackbox.xml

Code: Select all

<blackbox>
        <startflight text="Flight started!" sound="WelcomeOnBoard.wav" />
        <event var="flightstate" value="1" method="equal" multiple="0" sound="TaxiOrigin.wav" />
	<event var="landinglights" value="1" method="equal" multiple="1" text="Landing Lights on" />
	<event var="landinglights" value="0" method="equal" multiple="1" text="Landing Lights off" />
	<event var="gear" value="1" method="equal" multiple="1" text="Gear down" />
	<event var="gear" value="0" method="equal" multiple="1" text="Gear up" />
	<event var="flaps" value="1" method="equal" multiple="1" text="Flaps 100%" />
	<event var="flaps" value="0.5" method="equal" multiple="1" text="Flaps 50%" />
	<event var="flaps" value="0" method="equal" multiple="1" text="Flaps retracted" />
	<event var="ias" value="1" method="greater" multiple="0" flightstate="landed" sound="snd_applause.wav" />
 <combination sound="SafetyInstructions.wav" multiple="0">
    <event var="flightstate" value="1" method="equal" multiple="0" />
    <event var="groundspeed" value="10" method="greater" multiple="0" />
  </combination>
<combination sound="StartingDescend.wav" multiple="0">
    <event var="flightstate" value="7" method="equal" multiple="0" />
    <event var="vs" value="-1501" method="less" multiple="0" />
  </combination>
 <combination sound="ArrivedDestination.wav" multiple="0">
    <event var="flightstate" value="3" method="equal" multiple="0" />
    <event var="landinglights" value="0" method="equal" multiple="0" />
 </combination>
<combination sound="ConnectingFlights.wav" multiple="0">
    <event var="flightstate" value="4" method="equal" multiple="0" />
    <event var="groundspeed" value="0" method="equal" multiple="0" />
  </combination>
</blackbox>

Unfortunately, using the FSLabs A320, I found out the Parking Brake Penalty is back...wasn't that supposed to have been removed?

Other than that, great work again :D

Taking into account the new penalty for not using navigation lights, shouldn't the status of the nav ligths detected by the client be shown in the "Debug Information" section?

Bests,

That is an excellent idea and it will be in the next beta. I have set aside a block of time Sunday for working on the client, I forgot to read the navigation light status in the simconnect module and need to finish that up, along with some better text for the landing light penalties. All goes well I will have beta 5 ready by Monday.

maybe the client should give you 5% bonus for a very good landing as well as penalty for bad landing

just a suggestion

I do like the idea of a 5% plus for a "very good" landing, however I think the awards for doing multiple perfect flights is still a good enough incentive to fly well every time.
As you get closer to the next award it is more hair raising to do well for each flight and one slip up can make you start again, This, is enough to keep many people trying harder overall :D

Not certain about a 'bonus', or having a rating greater than 100%, we could always do -0% for very good, -5% for average and -10% for bad

ok so i've flown with the new client before but had the minor penalties disabled. now i have them enabled to avoid the 10% penalty and now after i hit the fly button to actually start the flight after fueling up and all, it crashes my sim as soon as it starts tracking.....

maybe a new Beta-6 don't send to server information about active flight?
(Win XP| SimConnect | FSX SP2)

I retured to departure airport and change client to stable version. Tomorow i can do flight with Beta-6 to view more about this bug

p.s. blackbox.xml reading - OK

Ok, i fixed my issue by running it as admin outside of fsx. and it's appears to be tracking properly through the client, but not showing up on the FSA map and my account still shows flight booked instead of enroute and the my signature photo still says in hangar.

It also appears that it is not penalizing me for landing lights on above 10K or off below 10K?
