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.

We did some testing for Xplane here.

No one came back with XACARS test. Fareed, you brought it up start testing.

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.
