FSACARS for X-Plane?

Postby Fareed Abdool » 04-06-2017 08:57 AM

I'm slowly moving over to X-Plane 11. X-Plane users, is it possible to use FSACARS in X-Plane? If so, how? Appreciate the help.

I will. We all know the process of a new sim. I'm not impressed with any of the weather engines that are currently available for X-Plane, so I'm going to wait for REX, or even HiFi Sims(If they decide to support X-Plane). In the mean time, I'll use the default weather engine with real world weather. I bought the Flight Factor 757 V2 Pro, installed it in X-Plane 11, and I never want to go back to MSFS. Only issue, I need more RAM. I built my rig for FSX, which can only use up to 4GBs. As soon as I install more RAM, I don't think I'll ever go back to MSFS.

Long ago I tested XACARS and the results were good. I have never had a PIREP rejected. Also, if you have 2 computers, you can set XPUIPC and fly using AAVACARS and it will register.

Guys, I'm looking at the format XACARS uses to send PIREPS to the server. It's different from FSACARS. I don't see how this could have ever worked for sending PIREPS to the AAVirtual site. Maybe Sergio tested it with the XACARS test site?

I will add this to my website enhancement list.

Not yet. I'm in the middle of a cosmetic makeover of our webite. That will take me till Aug or Sep. Then I'll work on a couple new ACARS including this.

Mike,
I have been flying using X-Plane 11 and at this time, it's really difficult to go back and fly FSX or FS2004. I have been flying the 738 ZIBO mod and it's really something else, been freeware. Are any updates to FSACARS or XACARS so I can submit my FREPs?

Luis,

I actually spent most of my free time this Thanksgiving Holiday getting the new web-site coded up. I'm probably 65% of the way there. I had not had time to touch it since April.

New ACARS, including X-plane support, is next on my list, but is still probably a few months away. I'll have you beta test as soon as it's stable.

Mike,
I will be more than willing to help BETA testing as soon as the new ACARS is ready.
