Ah, so this version updates itself when connected to the server - light bulb goes on.

Since I haven't registered, I can't connect to the server but I have just succeeded in passing data through the SBS1 Client to BaseStation.

I'll read through the process of registering.

That's it Ian.

Registration is easy and FREE.  But please read the PDF carefully.

Well that was easy enough.

SBS Client updated itself to GUIv0045 BINv0066

I seem to be lacking much output compared to others so my ratio is not looking good. Have to see how it goes.

Hi,

To avoid confusion might it be a good idea to make the latest version available to download rather than have to download an old version that updates once it's installed?

There may some good technical reason it's done this way, so if there is an explanation would be welcome, for me at least.

Please accept I'm not criticising, just asking :-)

Great forum, great people.

Cheers,

Keef.

I'll update the download file but the reason is simple.

It saves me updating the download file everytime there's a change (and sometimes there can be many in a short period of time) and new and existing sharers get the updated version automatically.

Unlike AirNav which still ships the RadarBox with three year old, outdated software on a CD.   >:(

Thanks Anmer,

Your explanation makes sense.

Hi,

I know it seems as if I'm going on a bit about this but I've just downloaded the current new_mms.pdf and it still says that you will have problems sharing data with PP with BS versions later than 159.

"Basestation Version 161 outputs “raw data” for PlanePlotter on port 30006, eliminating the need to use either the Vodka dll patch or Ethernetovich. Unfortunately this port includes all MMS2 shared data which will cause problems for other PlanePlotter users. If you want to share data with PlanePlotter and use MMS2, please use Basestation 159 or earlier."

That said as it's been posted that that is no longer the case I'm ready to give it a try...

Cheers,

Keef.

I've updated the software and PDF file which explains how to check that your PP sharing is OK before flicking the switch.

Anmer,

Thanks for the updated files.

I can't see the bit about checking PP sharing is OK before 'flicking the switch' but It's late and I've been up since 5 this morning so might have missed it.

Other than that my only comment is that the tray icon keeps popping up with "MMS2 Notice Session Ration:-( (0.00)".
Looking at the data in the app window so far I'm at RX 10/TX3.6, I've also logged on to the website and my stats are in green and 42%.

Cheers,

Keef.

Sorry, I thought I'd covered the PP test.

Its quite simple.  Make sure you have choosen different colours for local and shared data in PP.

Start PP but turn off sharing.  In SBS1 Client choose a node that will give you shared data beyond your local receiver's range and which you can see in Basestation's map.

Now check PP and if all you can see is your local data and nothing for the Client node, the PP data is good.

I don't have too much faith in the console ratio and always recommend checking usage via the website.

Again, thanks!

I changed the shared colour and looked at EGKK which is not far from me but I get no low level traffic from my own receiver.
Sure enough your test proved all is OK.

I've posted on the PP Yahoo! group that I've changed my settings as a precaution, but fingers crossed all will be well.

Is there a way of stopping the console from popping up the up/down stats warning if they are not that reliable?
I will keep an eye on the website stats to make sure I'm behaving  :)

Thanks so much for your help and patience, it is much appreciated.

Cheers,

Keef.

Ah, well, not to worry.
At least I know.

One more question, as my data is being fed to FR24 do I/can I qualify for a premium account without having to use their feeding software?

Cheers,

Keef.

I think so, try registering with the email address for MMS:

Please let me know if it works?
