Thread: Squawkbox 4 with FSX?

    Default Squawkbox 4 with FSX?

    Anyone using the new Squawkbox beta with FSX?

    I tried it once and it seemed ok. But I swear it disabled all my traffic, sorta weird.

    RyanbATC,

    I'm no SqawkBox expert but I would expect it to disable your traffic in anticipation of its showing VATSIM traffic rather than FS-generated traffic ... But I really don't know. (And don't forget to install the VIP aircraft set if you haven't done so already.)

    Re traffic, maybe it simply set your traffic density slider to the left but you could move it back when not online?

    I hope this helps,

    It may just be how FSX handles multiplayer...

    In FS9, multiplayer would automatically disable your AI traffic. Maybe FSX leaves it on, so SB 4 disabled it? not sure....

    Seems entirely reasonable to me -- you don't really want traffic floating about that nobody else can see...
