Reading Charts in VR

Can anybody offer advice on the best way to view charts etc in VR? I believe that the Navigraph overlay works in VR and there are various addons such as FSKneeboard that offer this kind of functionality. Does anyone have any experience to offer?

Re: Pilotclient IDENT keybind Request

Thanks for the update. I’m wondering if anybody has been successful in binding a button to Ident using FSUIPC ?

Re: Pilotclient IDENT keybind Request

I believe that Asobo have made some progress on this issue according to the FS forums. Is it now possible to bind a button to Ident in the sim or is some external programming needed?

It's possible for one app to open multiple output devices and send different sounds to each device.
Aha! - now everything suddenly makes sense. Thanks Keith.

Re: Sound setup for Windows 10

Thanks Keith - the bit I'm having difficulty with is visualising how the ATC and PE audio streams can be split to different devices in Windows since they emanate from the same app. I guess it will become evident when I have a USB headset to play with.

Re: Sound setup for Windows 10

Steve, You can't adjust the PE volume separate to X-Plane because it runs as an in-line plugin, you're right. You can adjust it separately with FSX/P3D, though, because PE runs as separate application for those sims. If you do want to adjust PE volume in xplane, the best way is to increase/decrease...

Re: Sound setup for Windows 10

I have a follow up question - I'm curious about how the PE client manages to make itself an application that is distinct from X-Plane since the client is running as a plugin within the XP application? You would imagine that Windows would see them as a single entity. Haven't got my hands on a USB hea...

Re: Sound setup for Windows 10

Open the volume mixer windows control panel app. One method is to right click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner. The other method is to type "adjust system volume" in the search box. On Win10 the mixer can be accessed from the "settings" control panel. Type "vol...

Re: Sound setup for Windows 10

By far the easiest solution to this problem is to throw money at it. Buy a USB headset for $30-$50 (The Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 is what I picked). Windows treats that as a separate audio device, so you can assign PilotEdge audio to the headset and leave your onboard sound card as the Windows def...

Re: OS X Yosemite

There has been a lengthy discussion on the topic of X-Plane performance being adversely affected by Yosemite over on the X-Plane.org forum. Here's the link:
