Hi Lars,

I just updated swift and downloaded the audio for vatsim client, but cannot seem to connect both to each other. FG is also not listed as one of the options in the AFV settings. Should I wait for the native integration of AFV in swift to be able to communicatie with voice again or is there already a solution?

Thanks!

Kind regards,

Isaak

I'd recommend keeping a watch on the swift discord. AFAIK, an AFV-enabled client is available as a public alpha, and that's the only way of getting it to work with Flightgear on Linux (IIRC there are alternative clients that support AFV already, including standalone voice clients, but they won't run on Linux).

Sorry, I'm not informed about the current usage with swift (alpha with AFV included) or swift and the standalone-client. But the connection to flightgear should be the same.

Will test this next week.

Hi Lars, and tdammers,

Thanks for your replies. I've just installed swift 0.9.3.910181036 (alpha). Audio for vatsim works fine with it. Big improvement!
