Breaking news from RealTraffic, see this post at the RealTraffic (http://www.inside.net/ss/realtraffic-for-psx/) website:


"RealTraffic 5 BETA

Download the Windows executable RealTraffic_5.0.2_BETA.zip, unzip the executable file anywhere on your computer and run it. Please don’t overwrite your released version (currently 4.0.7) as this BETA version has a limited life span and will expire on September 1 2017.

Hi Nico,

It looks pretty good! I've noticed a few issues, one of which is that the month in Realtraffic is July, not August as it should be, I'll forward this to Balt. It is showing August traffic though, not July.

I know you have generally been against historical data and haven't agreed to support this update in Realtraffic, but if you do....

1) I may be wrong, but do you use QNH data to adjust aircraft altitude from 1013? If so, historical QNH data may be required to stop aircraft landing in / before the runway rather than on it, or landing long. Example 22/08/2017 from 0805 UTC at EGLL, landing 09L.

2) Some aircraft seem to be displaying the wrong callsign (not sure if this is a historial data thing or more general). Examples are 22/08/2017 at 0810 UTC at EGLL, DAL402 on Planefinder and Realtraffic displayed as DAL18 in the sim, but going back and repeating it then correctly displayed as DAL402 (so very difficult to recreate). This might be something to so with adjusting the time slider on the fly but I'll check further and let you know.

Cheers,

Charlie K

@1 you are right, I am afraid this will not work...

EDIT:
Balt and I are working on a solution to get historical QNH available too

Hi,
PSXseeconTraffic version 7.0 beta (http://www.lekseecon.nl/downloads/psxt/setup_PSXseeconTraffic_v7.0.zip) is compatible with RealTraffic 5.0.4 (http://www.inside.net/RealTraffic_5.0.4_BETA.zip). We now also have the historical QNH of the last 48 hours available (world wide).

Please give it a try, and tell us what you think...

Cheers,
Nico

Hi guys,

Please update to version 7.1 beta.

This beta not only supports the historical data but is also prepared for a new option that will become available in RealTraffic 5.0.6 beta:
(optional) injection of your user aircraft data in the Real Traffic live data stream and (more interestingly) the option to see other flight simmers aircraft in your simulator together with live aircraft! (like flying on-line on VATSIM/IVAO)

Cheers,
Nico

Please update to PSXseeconTraffic 7.2 beta.

Note that injection of user aircraft data in the Real Trafic stream is not (yet) working. Balt has to make a small fix in RealTraffic.
