  2. FS2Crew has been developing Ultimate Ground Crew X (UGCX) for a while now, but today they posted a brief post on Facebook suggesting that they are finally over some of their biggest challenges. The team wrote that at long last they have “super accurate pushbacks” now. Described as what was holding up development, but the team have now “finally mastered it”. Whilst the team are moving on with development, they do need some support from the community. They are currently using the key assignment “DE-ICE (ON/OFF)” within the FSX/P3D environment. However, they need some help with other languages other than English for this. They are asking that if you are able to, you should provide a screenshot of what this key assignment looks like in German, French, Spanish, Japanese and any other language that FSX / P3D supports. I suggest if you’re looking to help the team, you send it to them via their Facebook page. No other details were shared at this time, but we’ll let you know as and when we hear anything new.

  3. X-Crafts has posted on their Facebook page that they have just opened their registration form for new beta testers. As stated in the post, the new ERJ from X-Crafts is going into beta testing very soon and they need new beta testers for this. As places are limited, and only a few people will be selected, X-Crafts is looking for people who are effective, reliable, engaged, and who have previous experience beta testing. As of yet, no information has been given on release date; however, typically beta testing means that the product is near release.

  4. Flightbeam Portland (KPDX) Entering Beta – Testers Needed With any Flightbeam product, the anticipation for the product release always seems high. Their upcoming version of Portland (KDPX) is nearing completion as it was confirmed that the team are entering beta testing for the product. With the news of beta testing about to take place, the team are also looking for people to assist in making sure it’s fit for release. The message post on the Flightbeam forums state that the team are looking for someone who has experience in testing, and, obviously, owns Prepar3D V4. To apply, head to the Flightbeam forums, register an account and drop a detailed message explaining why you want to test, what qualities you will bring and an overview of any previous testing experience. If you’re just keen to look at some imagery of the airport, you can do that also.

  7. X-Plane 11.30 Beta 4 and Steam X-Plane 11.30 Beta 4 is out, both for Laminar Customers and for Steam! The fix list for beta 4 is pretty short because we intentionally cut back on what we added to it. Beta 4 had one job, and that job was to not be as broken as beta 1, beta 2, or beta 3. X-Plane 11.30 Beta 4 does not have the performance improvements we have been working on for the last week and a half; Sidney and I found a bunch of things that are slowing 11.30 down, but we didn’t want to risk yet another broken beta. This stuff should be ready for beta 5 in a few days. The public beta for 11.30 has been unusual in that it took us quite a few betas to get a stable non-crashing, usable beta, and during the waiting period we heard a lot of complaints from Steam users about being left out, and a lot of questions about when the beta would make it to Steam. Here’s the problem: we don’t know the date when a beta will make it to Steam. Here’s the rough algorithm: 10 BETA = BETA + 1 20 RELEASE BETA 30 WAIT ABOUT 24 HOURS 40 IF BETA CRASHES GOTO 10 50 RELEASE STEAM BETA So in the case of X-Plane 11.30, we had to go back and recut betas due to a crash in the joystick code (beta 1), a crash when the radios were on (beta 2) and airplanes falling through airports into the abyss (beta 3). One thing to note: if there’s a beta and it’s a few days old and it’s not on Steam, it’s because the beta has a known bug that makes it so unusable that you wouldn’t want to set your Steam install to use it. I see no reason to have a beta that crashes when you start it. (Since we collect automatic crash reports from users, we have frequency information about how often crashes are happening, and we can identify crashes that are significantly more frequent than what we’d expect in a stable beta.)

  9. X-Camera 2.3.2 Beta 1 is ready X-Camera 2.3.2 Beta 1 View this email in your browser Stick and Rudder Studios Delighting The FlightSim Community Dear X-Camera User, Thank you for supporting X-Camera. You are receiving this email because you indicated you were interested in beta programs and new releases of X-Camera. In a few weeks Stick and Rudder Studios will be offering our products on the X-Plane.org Store. In preparation for this event we needed to enhance some of our products to handle the license keys that will be generated by the store. X-Camera 2.3.2 has been enhanced to support these keys and to make it easier to enter and validate license keys using the traditional method of pasting your key in the UI and validating / activating the key. X-Camera 2.3.2 will continue to work with your existing keys and license.txt file and it will also continue to support those features that do not require a key. We would like to seek help from a few volunteers to test 2.3.2. We want to make sure that existing keys continue to work and that the new key paste and validate functions work across all three operating systems. Help from OSX / Linux users would be most helpful as well as from those of you running X-Camera on Windows. 2.3.2 also contains one minor bug fix associated with one of the quick look keys not working properly. This will be a very short beta period for X-Camera 2.3.2. If you would like to help us test it please visit the thread on X-Plane.org where you can download beta versions and report any problems. https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/160784-x-camera-232-beta/ Thank you for your continued support of X-Camera. If you would like to be removed from the Stick and Rudder Studios mailing list or update your subscription preferences you can do so using the links at the bottom of this email.

  10. Posted October 25, 2018 Almost! we’ve been running a small scale private beta for the last few weeks while we finish new features and fix major bugs. I don’t want to curse the beta, but it looks like we may be able to get the public beta posted this weekend. In the last two days we’ve had two major show-stopping bugs, but both are fixed, so we’re going to keep trying to nail this thing down and get it posted. The public beta features not only the new particle system, available to third parties, but it is now in use for most (but not all) of the built-in effects in the sim. New Plane-Maker options let authors specify which effect categories (e.g. engine effects, wheel effects, etc.) they want to replace. At this point it looks like we won’t have anything public for Vulkan this year, although I do think we will hit some internal milestones. X-Plane 11.30 Public Beta: Are We There Yet?

But they do work hard : just saw that from Steam : I will add that we heard (from Helisimmer during a recent "3 Grumpy simmers" episode), the incoming arrival of a new type of aircraft in AFS2 : helicopters ! Well at least the 1st one : an R22 that has been tested and verified by a well known heli pilot Claude Bouchard.

  13. Dear X-ATC-Chatter User I want to inform you that X-ATC-Chatter standalone player 1.6 beta build 3 is available. Beta 3 contains the following additions: Added support for pop-out windows for X-Plane 11 Added filtering of facilities for the Nearby Facility UI Increased the radius of nearby facilities UI to 75 NM Upgraded to the newest X-Plane SDK Note: This beta is for the stand-alone player only. The archive below does not contain any chatter clips and it is assumed you will use this with the clips previously purchased. This beta is also not for those customers who are using X-ATC-Chatter exclusively with Pilot2ATC as the stand alone player is not installed for that configuration.

  18. DCS World 2.5 Open Beta Update 4 Since the third update to the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta, the team has focused their efforts on loading time, memory leaks, and performance issues in the Open Beta. In this 4th update, we believe we have largely addressed these issues. For those taking part in the DCS World 2.5 Open Beta, we look forward to your feedback, and once we feel confident these issues have been resolved, we will move DCS World 2.5 out of Open Beta. You can find the complete DCS World 2.5 Open Beta Update 4 changelog here. https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/bitrix/tools/track_mail_click.php?tag=sender.eyJSRUNJUElFTlRfSUQiOiIxNTU2ODM2In0%3D&url=https%3A%2F%2Fforums.eagle.ru%2Fshowpost.php%3Fp%3D3423375%26postcount%3D5%26bx_sender_conversion_id%3D1556836&sign=6d604dac295dd3935e4150eb9322cb203cb3bfd769d49b67d71cf126acf84e64 DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Update Work continues at a brisk pace on the Hornet. Since the last Hornet update, most of the navigation systems (TACAN, ADF, and Waypoints) are now functional, the flight model / flight control system is further refined, internal and external sounds have been improved, texturing of the cockpit art is now using an improved albedo effect, aerial refueling is working, fuel dump has been added, conditional switch position based on airfield or aircraft carrier start has been implemented, more realistic LEX vapor, and a more dynamic simulation of the individual engines. The team is making great progress. The big items to still implement though include STT/ACM radar modes for air-to-air radar, AUTO, CCIP, and MAN modes for unguided bombs, and the moving map display option. Once these are completed, we will move the Hornet into full testing. We are also working on an extensive set of interactive training missions. DCS: AJS-37 Viggen – 16-2 Red Flag Campaign on Steam The AJS-37 Viggen: 16-2 Red Flag Campaign is a depiction of flying the AJS-37 Viggen during a typical Red Flag exercise in the skies over Nevada. Take the role of a US Air Force exchange pilot to the Swedish Air Force as you return to take part in a Red Flag in the cockpit of a Viggen. This campaign includes extensive briefing, map, and lineup card PDF files for each mission and was designed by the creators of the Spitfire: Epsom and Mustang: Charnwood campaigns. All of the missions are based on input from pilots that have flown in Red Flag exercises and will provide you a challenge that will test even the most skilled virtual pilots.

  19. WinRAR - Newsletter 01/2018- WinRAR 5.60 beta 1 ( downloaded the beta, will let know if operates ok) hi hi Issue: March 16, 2018 Welcome to the 115th edition of the WinRAR Newsletter! WinRAR 5.60 First Beta versions released! Find out about the main improvements! What is a Beta version? How to get the Beta version? Five Minute Survey: WinRAR How To Video Training Course Join us on Facebook! 1. WinRAR 5.60 first Beta versions released! Find out about the main improvements! With the release of WinRAR 5.60 beta 1, we continue our constant development of the world's leading compression and archive management software WinRAR. This time you will literally see that something has changed - the WinRAR graphics! Furthermore we have improved usability, added new features and fixed some minor bugs from previous versions. The highlights of the version: Firstly the WinRAR graphics. After letting our users vote, we are proud to announce that starting with WinRAR 5.60 Beta 1 we will use your favorite design, the icon set prepared by Aditya Nugraha Putra from http://weirdsgn.com, as our default icon design. Many thanks to http://weirdsgn.com and http://icondesignlab.com designers who participated in this challenge to create new icon and toolbar designs. And thank you, our users and partners, again for participating in the vote! Additionally, the look of the info dialog has been modernized. On the one hand the compression ratio graph has been refreshed. On the other hand "Names and Data" is displayed in "Encryption" field for archives with encrypted file names. Moreover the "Repair" command efficiency has been improved for recovery record protected RAR5 archives. It can detect deletions and insertions of unlimited size as well as shuffled data including data taken from several recovery record protected archives and merge them into a single file in arbitrary order. The usability of the decompression password dialogue is more user-friendly now. If a wrong password for password protected RAR files with encrypted file names is inserted, WinRAR now proposes to enter a valid password instead of just aborting the extraction process. That already worked in the previous versions for encrypted file data, but now has been added for encrypted file names. This option now is also available for unpacking encrypted files in ZIP archives. Furthermore WinRAR can now recognize different encodings like ANSI (Windows), OEM (DOS), UTF-8 and UTF-16 and is able to display them correctly in comment files. However these are only some improvements of many more! See the complete list of all enhancements and bug fixes here: www.win-rar.com/whatsnew.html. 2. What is a Beta version? Due to the fact that our many users all over the world use all sorts of hardware platforms and software configurations, some issues in a new WinRAR version can only be addressed once they have been stumbled across in every day usage and reported by our kind users (thank you all in advance for that!). Therefore, prior to a full release, we always make our free beta versions available for the final stages of testing. That way bugs can be found and eliminated from the software before its official release. 3. How to get the Beta version? The new WinRAR 5.60 (32-bit) beta 1 can be downloaded from here: www.win-rar.com/fileadmin/winrar-versions/wrar56b1.exe. The 64-bit version of WinRAR 5.60 beta 1 is available under the following link: www.win-rar.com/fileadmin/winrar-versions/winrar-x64-56b1.exe. 4. Five Minute Survey: WinRAR How To Video Training Course Most WinRAR users aren't aware of the wide range of WinRAR functions. The online video training course is being designed to provide all WinRAR users at any level, with easy to follow video based instructions in order to explore all of WinRAR's extensive capabilities.

  21. One of the most impressive #freeware projects currently under development is HungaryVFR which will be available as a public beta soon. I reached out to one of the developers of the team (which by the way also listen to the name HungaryVFR) to find out more. According to this guy, the release of the beta is imminent but there’s still a lot to do thereafter as this statement suggests: Yes, you heard right. The team is not only working on a VFR suitable representation of Hungary (by the way in Hungarian the country’s name is Magyarország, try to pronounce that ), they are also working on a #freeware of LHBP Budapest which is a much-needed destination for our sim.
