Tried out EasyVR4 or the first time today and though I've been looking aroung in the settings, I cannot find an option to connect to MSFS2020. I'm running EASYVFR4 on the same computer (W10 Pro) as the Simulator. EasyVR3 is running fine i.c.w. XConn.

I got my MSFS2020 running now after investing some bucks for new hardware. Since things changed a bit, I need to modify xConn. Once I get it working with new FS version, I lett you know.

I now got the old xConn compiled and running with new FS2020. But I'd like to add GDL90 and FLARM protocol as well. That will take some more time

Let me know when you're happy with NMEA only. Then I need your mail address to send you the simple version

Thanks for your reply and efforts to make things work and yes I would be very happy with just NMEA (at least for now ?)

My email address: [email protected]

Regards,

Peter

Hello Peter,

sorry, but I have to delay the MSFS2020 xConn since I found a nasty bug when testing with MSFS2020. As soon as it's resolved, you'll get it.

Have a nice weekend

Hi Ubi,

I was wondering how the development goes about the connection between FS2020 and EasyVFR. I am quite interested too.

Hi al,

Our friend Ubi created a connector tool for MFFS202.

 
I have tested the new xConn myself on windows 11 and it works perfectly. Just unzip the folder and start the .exe file. When the OS warns for an unsafe file, just allow to launch it anyway.
  • By default, the correct port 43211 for EasyVFR 4 is set.
  • The default IP address 127.0.0.1 is for broadcasting within the same device.
  • If you like to receive xConnn data on another device like a tablet or phone in the same network, enter the IP address of the network where both xConn(with msfs2020) and the other device are connected to. Typically the IP address of your modem where you change the digits after the third dot.
    • You can broadcast to a specific device by looking up the digits after the third dot of the IP address of that device. For example 126.129.1.3
    • Or broadcasting to everyone in the network by setting the last digits to.255 For example 126.129.1.255
The current version is for positional data only. There are some ideas for a final version with much more features like GDL90, FLARM, traffic from FS2020 etc.

Cheers,
Tim

Dear Tim

Because I am a bit of a digibetic a step by step instruction for connecting Easy vfr to msfs2020 would be appreciated. I tried it, following your text, but I didn't succeed to get it on my Android tablet. I downloaded the tool on both the pc and the tablet. Do I have to import Easyvfr in community folder of msfs2020.as well. Your tool is already imported. I know that there is a way to do so, because it was the same with Vfr map. Unfortunatelly I forgot how I did that. 

 It would be a great solution to get Easyvfr on a second screen.

Sorry to bother you but please help

Keep up the good work

Kind greetings

Leo

P.S. if you are Dutch a reply in this language will be much more easier.
