X-Plane voice comms
« on: November 07, 2014, 12:48:34 PM »
Hello, hello

since I've installed XSquawkBox it has never performed very well with voice communication. I thought it was a problem with my setup so I never tried to really fix it, until last evening.  Unfortunatelly there is nothing wrong with the hardware setup but with the interaction between XSB and Windows 8 :(. The only solution on the internet is to actually run X-Plane in Windows 7 compatibility mode. I've tested this and it works without any problems. Unfortunatelly, in this mode X-Plane loads up slower and some people on the internet reported lower frame rates. I didn't have time to really test the fps difference (at first sight there is no difference) but the voice comms now work.

I'll do some online flights to see if it really hits the performance of the sim.

In any case, I am waiting for a solution (update, patch) from the XSB guys. Voice comms don't really deserve a performance hit, especially in X-Plane.

Cheers.
