    QUESTION #3: Sometimes, I have to repeat the word "checked" since Michelle seems to be "deaf" for a second after she has read an item on her checklist.
    RESPONSE: First, ensure that you are using a highly directional headset microphone. Next, make certain that you have adequately TRAINED the Speech Recognition system. I recommend running a minimum of three (3) sessions. Lastly, make sure you have the microphone positioned correctly on your head.

    NOTE: If you do not see the text you have spoken displayed in the Speech Bar, then one (or more) of four things has occurred:

    1. The microphone sensitivity is TOO LOW or TOO HIGH
    2. You are speaking TOO LOUDLY or TOO SOFTLY
    3. The microphone is improperly set on your head
    4. The phrase you are speaking does not exist   (check the COMMANDS section)
    If all of the above seem to be working correctly, then please right click on the Task Manager (bottom left) while both the simulator and IYP are running. Select the Processes tab. Click twice on the CPU column header such that the highest consuming processes are at the top of the list. The IYP application should be consuming no more than 1%-3% of the CPU time. The FSX simulator should be running about 70%-80%. If it is running higher than that, then try reducing the load by dropping down some of your scenery settings. Another thing --- make sure that ANY UNNECESSARY applications (like MSNMessenger, Yahoo Messenger, etc.) are SHUT DOWN when you're flying.

    QUESTION #4: I've noticed that some commands do not have an effect.
    RESPONSE: It's Your Plane (IYP) can only control SIMULATOR FUNCTIONS that are exposed via FSUIPC (except for PMDG aircraft, etc.).

    PANEL SWITCHES, such as Seat Belt signs, No Smoking signs, virtual APU systems, etc., are not accessible. IYP has PSEUDO functionality for these checklist items. e.g., When Michelle states, "The seat belts sign should be on", you can do one of two things.

    1. Simply say "Seat belts on" and the IYP application will VIRTUALLY turn on the sign and make a "chime" sound. However, the panel switch will not move. NOTE: There isn't a Seat Belts sign in FS9 at all.

    2. Flip the seat belts sign switch on the panel manually to the ON position (if there is one), then say, "Checked, or "Roger" and Michelle/Mike will carry on.

    QUESTION #5: It would be nice if Michelle/Mike would understand "decimal" in addition to "point".
    RESPONSE: In fact, they do. They "REMEMBER" the POINT and/or DECIMAL syntax. Simply say (e.g.), "Set Nav1 to 113 DECIMAL 25", and they will respond with DECIMAL from then on. If you want them to return to POINT, Simply say (e.g.), "Set Nav1 to 113 POINT 25"


    QUESTION #6: Why can't Michelle/Mike understand "Reduce speed to two zero knots"?
    RESPONSE: The problem with the phrase, "Reduce speed to two two zero", is that it will interpreted as, "Reduce speed TWO two two zero". Therefore, the only phrase than can be used for airspeed is, "Airspeed two two zero".

    QUESTION #7: It would be nice if one could automatically disable Michelle/Mike during ATC readbacks and communications.
    RESPONSE: Simply say, "One moment please", or, "Hang on a minute" and they will be silent. To resume the conversation, simply say, "Say again...", or "Please continue..." and they will continue. There are a number of other phrases you can use that are listed under the COMMANDS section of this site. Just scroll down to Stop FO and Start FO.

    QUESTION #8: I have a German operating system and the IYP application displays a panel error on launch.
    RESPONSE: The problem occurs because the It's Your Plane application reads the "Window Titles" from the PANEL.CFG file in order to facilitate the commands: "Bring up the [Window Name]" and "Get rid of the [Window Name]". Unfortunately, the Window Names in German contain characters that the standard ASCII table cannot read. Therefore, an error occurs.

    Since the IYP application only operates in English at this point, it makes no sense to be using the German (or any other non-English) names, because you would have to say, "Bring up the Funkgruppe", instead of "Bring up the Radio Stack". Therefore, the simplest resolution is to change all Non-English Window Names to English Window Names within the PANEL.CFG.

    NOTE: Changing the Window Titles will not adversely affect the simulator's operations; these names are effectively "comments".

    For example, the German Window Titles are:

      [Window Titles]
      window00=Hauptinstrumentenbrett
      window01=Funkgruppe
      Window02=GPS
      Window03=Instrumentenbrett für Leistung
      Window04=Oberes Instrumentenbrett
      Window05=Instrumentenbrett für Trimmung
      Window06=PFD
      Window07=MFD
      Window08=EICAS
      Window09=Kleines Instrumentenbrett
    They need to be replaced with:
      [Window Titles]
      window00=Main Panel
      window01=Radio Stack
      Window02=GPS
      Window03=Throttle Panel
      Window04=Overhead Panel
      Window05=Trim Panel
      Window06=PFD
      Window07=MFD
      Window08=EICAS
      Window09=Mini Panel

    QUESTION #9: IYP cannot find files - ERROR 53.
    RESPONSE: If you have installed BOTH FS9 and FSX, then there is a high likelihood that your Registry has gotten messed up! This is a well-known Micosoft problem, where the FS9 installer corrupts the FSX registry entries. Since IYP uses the registry to find the location of FSX, if there is no path - it can't find certain files. Please try downloading the free "FSX Registry Utility" from Tweak FS here:

    This should help you eliminate the registry problem.

    The required Registry entries for a 32-bit operating system are:

    FS9:
    RegistryHive.LocalMachine, "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\9.0", "EXE Path"

    FSX:
    RegistryHive.LocalMachine, "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0", "SetupPath"

    respectively.

    The required Registry entries for a 64-bit operating system are:

    FS9:
    RegistryHive.LocalMachine, "SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Flight Simulator 9.0", "InstallLocation"

    FSX:
    RegistryHive.LocalMachine, "SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0", "SetupPath"

    respectively


    QUESTION #10: The Speech Bar Display does not work!
    RESPONSE: Please ensure that you do not have the:

      Hide all single line messages
    option set (checked) in FSUIPC.

    QUESTION #11: Why do I get... "It appears though as if flightplan and/or aircraft have changed, etc." in the midst of a flight?
    RESPONSE: Please ensure that you are not running:

      AUTOSAVE
    in FSUIPC. For more details, please go here:

    http://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads-file-1244-details.html


    QUESTION #12: What does the Process Priority checkbox do?
    RESPONSE: When this feature is selected (turned on), it steps up the Priorities of the SAPI (Voice Regognition and Text-To-Speech) server and the It's Your Plane application. You can observe the step-up by right-clicking on the Task Bar at the bottom right of your screen, and selecting the Task Manager. Select the Processes tab and right-click on the sapisvr.exe and/or the itsyourplane.exe application. Then, pass your mouse over the Set Priority selection to observe the Priority level.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: This option should only be used with computer systems that have limited CPU processing capabilities.


    QUESTION #13: Why did my system automatically change from the normal ONLINE mode, to the OFFLINE mode?
    RESPONSE: If for any reason you cannot connect via the Internet to the IYP servers, the program will automatically switch to the OFFLINE mode and must be manually switched back to the ONLINE mode. To acomplish this, UNCHECK the Run offline checkbox on the IYP Main panel. To get to the IYP Main panel, simply minimize your simulator's window.

    QUESTION #14: What does the "OFFLINE" mode do - or not do please?
    RESPONSE: When in the OFFLINE mode, there are ZERO COMMUNICATIONS with the IYP servers. This means that the Flight Tracker is deactivated, the ACARS Log files cannot be uploaded, and real-time weather reports are not communicated during Flight-Following announcements. Other than that, there's no real difference.

    QUESTION #15: Auto-Feather Doesn't work on my Beechcraft King Air C90B.
    RESPONSE: Make sure that you have set up a the Key Assignment
      CTRL+SHIFT+TAB+A
    under:
      Options > Settings > Controls > Buttons / Keys > Autofeather (Arm/Off)

    QUESTION #16: Where can I download the manual?
    RESPONSE: The 'Manual' (per se) is built-in. i.e, All the user need do is say, "Please help me." Since IYP is based upon an audible paradigm, it seemed logical to have the manual... 'Vocalised'. Furthermore, since new features that are driven by user input, happen on a regular basis, a 'printed manual' would likely be outdated before the ink dried! (LOL)

    The primary 'written' source of help are the checklists themselves:

    Within each checklist, the 'suggested' response is set forth. Naturally, there are alternative phrases that can be used.

    e.g., 'Checked'. 'Affirmative', 'Roger', 'Yes it is', 'Yes they are', all ostensibly mean the same thing. Naturally, all of the 'Voice Commands' are located at:

    The commands and checklists are automatically updated every time a phrase and/or query is added to the application. This keeps the Website data current.


    QUESTION #17: Why do commands keep repeating themseleves?
    RESPONSE: Whenever you make a flight with It's Your Plane, transcripts of both your spoken commands, as well as Michelle's responses (your beautiful Co-Pilot), are stored in transcript files located in a folder under your flight simulator's root directory, called "IYPlogs". e.g.,
    • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FS2004\IYPlogs\20070727125045.htm
    • C:\Program files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\IYPlogs\20070727125045.htm
    In the HTM file you will see what you and Michelle said in the cockpit.

    There is little doubt but that you have a problem with your audio set up. The output sound is being sent back to your microphone input.

    The transcript will show:

      You said: ABC
      Michelle said: ABC
      You said: ABC
      Michelle said: ABC
      You said: ABC
      Michelle said: ABC
      You said: ABC
      Michelle said: ABC
    etc. This will only occur where the checklist 'prompts' syntax is very close to your 'response' syntax. e.g.,

      You said: 'Landing lights on.'
      Michelle said: 'Landing lights on?'
      You said: 'Landing lights on.'
      Michelle said: 'Landing lights on?'
      You said: 'Landing lights on.'
      Michelle said: 'Landing lights on?'
    Your answer is being fed back to the microphone input, and Michelle is picking her response to you, as you saying the command again, and again, and again.

    Please carefully check your audio setup.


    QUESTION #18: Does starting IYP do an automatic reset to Cold and Dark?
    RESPONSE: When Michelle says, "Please wait while I connect to the IYP servers for correct, aircraft, flight plan, checklist, etc.", she's NOT setting the aircraft to Cold and Dark. She simply REQUIRES the basic information about the aircraft and flight plan, otherwise she can't do anything properly. Michelle needs to KNOW what's she's helping to fly and to where!

    Resettting to "Cold and Dark" is a completely different issue, and is ONLY invoked by you saying, "Reset Cold and Dark". This is similar to the aforementioned process, except she'll do a lot more things like, turn off the engines, open the doors, etc. NOTE: The aircraft also gets automatically set to Cold and Dark when you say, "Do the Pre-Fliight checklist"... naturally!


    QUESTION #19: Why did you prefer to use artifical/synthetic voice over pre-recordered waves files?
    RESPONSE: There were 2 main reasons: 1) Michelle / Mike (the IYP First Officers) provide In-Flight announcements that vary with data. e.g.,
    "Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Welcome aboard Air Canada flight number 722 to Seattle. If you tune to Channel 7 on your headsets, I will be pointing out places of interest along our flight. We'll be getting underway very shortly. Thank you."

    All of the above items displayed in RED are dynamic. It would be completely impractical to record the names of every Airliner and ALL of the Cities in the world. It would likely require TerraBytes of data and probably 7 1/2 years to record all of the names! (lol)

    NOTE:
    The AT&T and NextUp Voice Fonts are a vast improvement over the standard Microsoft fonts. Listen here:

    2) Michelle / Mike conduct IYP TOURS wherein the TOUR designer "types his/her script via the keyboard" and this becomes the text that the First Officer speaks throughout the flight. I understand the Microsoft Missions use "recorded" voices in this process, but it is simply far too demanding a requirement (in my humble opinion). The average person does not have a professionally designed audio recording facility and a $500.00 ElectoVoice microphone.


    QUESTION #20: Why do you use only Internet Explorer and not Firefox or Netscape to install the IYP application?
    RESPONSE: It's Your Plane utilises a depoyment technology called ClickOnce. It only currently operates with Internet Explorer. ClickOnce is a new deployment technology that offers self-updating Windows-based applications that can be installed and run with minimal user interaction.

    ClickOnce overcomes three major issues inherent in deployment:

    1. Difficulties in updating applications. With traditional Microsoft Windows Installer deployment, whenever an application is updated, the user is required to reinstall the entire application; with ClickOnce deployment, the updates are provided automatically. Only those portions of the application that have changed are downloaded, then the fully cached and updated application is installed at run time.

    2. Impact to the user's computer. With Windows Installer deployment, applications often rely on shared components, with the potential for versioning conflicts; with ClickOnce deployment, each application is self-contained and cannot interfere with other applications.

    3. Security permissions. Windows Installer deployment requires administrative permissions and allows only limited user installation; ClickOnce deployment allows non-administrative users to install and grants only those Code Access Security permissions necessary for the application.
    In the past, these issues sometimes caused developers to decide to create Web applications rather than Windows-based applications, sacrificing the rich user interface and responsiveness of Windows Forms for ease of installation. With applications deployed using ClickOnce, we can utilise the best of both technologies.


    QUESTION #21: Why does ALL power disappear while I'm running through the checklsts?
    RESPONSE: The battery runs down. There is an option in the Miscellaneous section of a Registered version of FSUIPC and/or FSUIPC4 that permits you to Extend Battery Life.

    If you are running an unregistered version of FSUIPC or FSUIPC4, then add the following to the FSUIPC.INI file, within the [General] section:

    • MagicBattery=Yes
    This will extend the life of the battery to infinity.

    QUESTION #22: Why does the Speech Recognition work for a while then stop?
    RESPONSE: There are a number of things that can cause this to happens. However, here' one possibility. If you are running on an XP platform with SAPI 5.1 installed, sometimes the Speech Recognition server will stop working if the system runs low on memory. Incidentally, this is a known problem by Microsoft, but they have yet to release a fix. Try this... click on:
      Start
      Control Panel
      Sound, Speech and Audio Devices
      Speech
    to launch the Speech Properties window. Close the Control Panel, but...

    *** LEAVE THE SPEECH PROPERTIES WINDOW OPEN IN THE BACKGROUD ***

    This causes the Speech Recognition engine to service the Speech Properties section and keeps SAPI operating.

    Perhaps this will resolve the issue for you.


    QUESTION #23: Why can I not hear environmental sounds, cockpit announcements, cabin music, etc?
    RESPONSE: Go to START on desktop and hit RUN. Type in:

    QUESTION #25: As I am running down the checklists, suddently my aircraft loses all power and I cannot get it back on.
    RESOLUTION: If you have the REGISTERED version of FSUIPC(3/4), then open it, click on the Miscellaneous Tab and enter 0 in the "Extend Battery Life" (see image below).

    If you do not have a REGISTERED version of FSUIPC(3/4), then go to the Modules folder under your simulator's root folder, and open the file FSUIPC.INI in Notepad. Enter the following under the [General] section:

    QUESTION #28: I have a Vista PC, and when I run It's Your Plane, I hear, "We must download some required files. This delay only happens during set up or system upgrades. I will inform you when we are 50 percent done. Please wait.", then NOTHING happens.
    RESOLUTION:

    1. Close the It's Your Plane application and your Simulator.

    2. Go to your Simulator's ROOT folder (e.g., C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\) with Explorer.

    3. Right click on the folder and choose Properties.

    4. Clear the Read-only box and press Apply.

    5. You should get a pop-up where you press Apply Changes to this folder, subfolders and files.

    6. After processing the files go to the Security tab.

    7. Here, you should have a list of users that have access to the flightsim folder.

    8. Choose Users (Your PC name\Users) and press Edit.

    9. A new window pops up - and you can set the Rights for each user.

    10. Start with CREATOR OWNER and click on the Full control box - you should see all boxes get ticked.

    11. Press Apply. When finished do the same for all the users in there.

    12. Press Ok until all the window boxes are closed.

    13. Re-launch the IYP application and ensure that the files download properly.


    QUESTION #29: Do I need to go to the IYP Website each time I want to run It's Your Plane?
    ANSWER:   No.

    Once downloaded and installed, the IYP application can be run by clicking on:

      Start
      All Programs
      Robert Cezar
      DOUBLE LEFT-CLICK ON   It's Your Plane

    You can make it even easier by creating a Shortcut to the IYP application.

      Start
      All Programs
      Robert Cezar
      RIGHT-CLICK ON   It's Your Plane
      SELECT   Properties
      CHOOSE   Create Shortcut
      DRAG   the Shortcut to your Desktop


    QUESTION #30: Why when I run It's Your Plane, does the programme start... then DISAPPEAR?
    POSSIBILITY:

    Data Execution Protection can be set to a setting that prevents your software from running. If it is set to a setting that is too high, you may notice programs that do not start up (they show nothing when you execute the application), and in some cases, you may notice the program simply closing with no message or warning. It just seems to close (or dissapear from the screen), when a certain action takes place.

    If DEP is causing you trouble, you should make sure it is set to "...essential Windows programs and services only." To do this, right click the "Computer" icon on your desktop and select Properties. Then select Advanced, and then select the Performance Options button. You will see a Data Execution Protection tab there. Make sure it is set to "Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only." After you change this, reboot your system. Do not set DEP to the "...all programs and services" option unless you want to experience program shutdowns or programs that do not run.


    QUESTION #31: I am an existing user. Why do I receive Microsoft Enrty Point - Access Denied?

      http://www.ItsYourPlane.com
    you will go directly yo the Home Page.


    QUESTION #32: Why did Michelle say, "It looks like you have left me", then closed the programme?
    ANSWER:

    If you are on the ground and you do not issue a voice command within about 15 to 20 minutes, Michelle assumes you've gone to lunch and closes the application. If you're flying, and the Latitude and Longitude do not change (meaning the aircraft is in the Pause mode) for a period of 15 to 20 minutes, Michelle also assumes you've gone to lunch and closes the application.


    QUESTION #33: How do I get my Pilot Number?
    ANSWER:

    Your Pilot Number is displayed on the IYP Control Panel (see image below).   If the IYP application is running and you cannot see the IYP Control Panel, then minimise your simulator.   In addition, if the IYP programme is running, you can ask Michelle for your Pilot Number by simply asking her, "What is my Pilot Number?"




    QUESTION #34: I get the Error 'Run time error 713- Class not registered' when I run Radar Contact.

    ANSWER:
    In all likelihood, you're running Windows 7 or 8 in the 64 BIT mode. In this case, you need to DOWNLOAD, INSTALL and REGISTER a file called MSSTDMFT.DLL. Irrespective of whether you're running IYP on a single PC or in the WideClient mode, the following needs to be conducted on the PC where Radar Contact is installed. Here are the steps to be taken:

    1. Download the file MSSTDMFT.ZIP from our servers and unzip its content (MSSTDMFT.DLL) into the folder on your PC entitled C:\system\sysWOW64.

    2. You now need to REGISTER this component. If you're running Windows 7, go to...

        Start > All Programs > Acccessories

      RIGHT-CLICK on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator.

      If you're running Windows 8.1...

        RIGHT-CLICK on Start and select Command Prompt (Admin)

    3. In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following...

        cd \windows\syswow64

      then press the ENTER key.

    4. We will now REGISTER the newly installed component by typing the following...

        regsvr32 msstdmft.dll

      then press the ENTER key.

    5. That's it. Start Radar Contact.
