Condor 2 stops responding shortly after entering simulation

Hi, Folks. I've been flying Condor (1 and 2) for a long time and have run into a problem that's preventing me from doing so on a consistent basis. I don't know what has changed that's caused the problem, but it now is happening about 50% or more of the times when I try to fly a task. The problem pre...

No MNS west coast server tonight?

Is that now the plan, to run the server only for the East Coast at 7PM eastern and no West Coast rerun? Or, did something happen and it just didn't come up, tonight. I waited until about 8:30 MDT to see if it was there and didn't find it. Thanks. Les

Re: Condor and iGlide

I've had that happen a couple of times, and it's been because the IP address iGlide is set to connect to and the IP address of the machine running Condor are different. So far it's been because something changed on the Windows side, for reasons I don't understand. But, setting it back to the correct...

Re: MNS/USNS Move to Condor Club

Daniel and Tom, Thanks for moving MNS to condor-club. It will be great to keep the tasks coming. And, as always, thanks a bunch for all you've done with MNS west coast for the last many years. It's been wonderful to be able to get a good task in on many weeks. I just wanted to check - last night's t...

Re: Wave soaring

Lennies can form at multiple layers, based on the moisture in each layer. How wind layers are generated, and how strongly they interact is complicated, and probably not well understood. On a day with lots of high level moisture, there can be stacks and stacks of lenticular clouds. There are also day...

Re: Condor and iGlide

I agree with JanJansen, it sounds like you haven't loaded the local area map, or the .cup files that show turn points and some airports. The maps are loaded from inside iGlide by going to "Menu", "Settings", then "Map Data", selecting the correct country, and then the section of the country that you...

Re: to dolphin or not to dolphin ?

I think the other key thing to consider, is that it does matter what sailplane you're using. As Erik mentioned, dolphining in a big ship is more effective than in the smaller ships. I find almost no value to use dolphin flight in club or standard class. In open, at least with the Nimbus, you can mak...

Re: What Makes Condor so Good?

[quote="Olympia"]It would be fun and instructive to able to repeat this debacle on Condor I think, if only to curb the optimism of young instructors. And of course it would be a whole lot safer.

Re: Using iGlide with Condor

I continue to use iGlide regularly without any problems. I'm a Mac user and run Condor under Boot Camp. I recently moved to Win10 in Boot Camp, and getting iGlide to connect to it took a little more fiddling than with WinXP, but it has been working once I poked around a bit. You're seeing data out t...

Re: Using iGlide with Condor

I'm not sure, at this point - it seems they changed label in the software somewhere along the way. However, that's a good guess. The "AIR connect" slider is "on" in the version I'm running now, and it appears to be the only reasonable choice, so that's probably it.

Good luck,

Re: mac installation

I've been running Condor on a Mac with Bootcamp for about 6 years now; as for Olympia, it's always worked well. Then again, I've also only used XP as the Windows OS. I'm told that newer versions of the Mac OS (I have 10.7.5) require newer versions of Windows to run in Bootcamp, so that may present s...
