Both of those things are true, but something is not right anyway.
The ADS-B receiver is counting up several thousand received messages, but still not one aircraft has shown up on the web page list. I have dozens of aircraft in range using ACARS, and none of them are on the list, either.
I am still not seeing the interaction between acarsdeco2 and VRS. Here is the batch file I'm using, with the parameters on separate lines for clarity:
I am not sure whether or not acarsdeco2 is actually talking to VRS. I am receiving ACARS transmissions, but the server aircraft counter stays at zero and nothing appears in the aircraft list. Also, I set my home location, but the map is still showing the Heathrow area.
That is how mine is formatted. But the program only seems to draw information from it for some transmissions. If the aircraft is not listed in the aircrafts files, then airlines is not checked, either.
Sometimes I get conflicting data from the two files, though.
I have questions about the files in the datasets directory. I've been experimenting and I'm still not sure how they are supposed to work with the program.
I provided a new airlines.txt file with IATA and ICAO codes for about 300 airlines, but the program seems to ignore that information most...
