    Amper, thx for the link, I've been there. Anyway, after playing around with settings adding wpt and airways, adjusting colours, setting lines in the data block I gotta say: Radar View feature is just terrible, and let me explain why.

    First of all, the Font - it's pretty hard to read it. If it's so indistinct it at least should be allowed to increase it's size.
    Interface - come on, to edit the amount of graphics I want to see on my screen I must go to text editor and add/delete wpt and airways I need/don't want. Moreover, it's base is outdated, incorrect.
    Data blocks (labels) - why can't I select Altitude/Speed in the second raw? It's so obvious, even conventional fr24 view allows it. I'd also be perfect to set an area out of which the labels would be suppressed e.g. radius 100 miles from an airport.

    Don't throw anything at me please, these are just my thoughts. I'm an active controller, so I just wish this feature developed into something modern looking as for now it reminds me of ATC workstations from 90ties. Probably there is just no money to do all this as it'd take a lot of time to do this job and it's understandable. But if there are, it's just unfair to ask money for such a low-end application.

    Hello guys! I'm looking for Airspace boundaries (not only FIR, but also ACC/APP) and SID-STARs outlines files, preferably for LTBA, KJFK, Australian airports. Can anyone help me with this?

    You can download the RodBearden's outlines zip file to use with Radarview.

    there is no program to download.
    Use notepad++ to create .wpt and .out files
    on the link you can see how

    FR24 doesn't provide those files
    I dont know how to download the program.

    Hello,
    I have a problem with my RadarView, I want to see LEMD but it's very poor only runways and planes and I want ILS's, Holds, VOR's, fixes...
    How can I have them??? I've seen videos of spanish people that have the flightradar 24 and full LEMD and I want it to.

    Question relates to Radarview and the Basestation.ini file which I'm guessing enhances the look of the screen displayed.

    How exactly do I get the Basestation.ini file and then load?
    Using Google Chrome if that makes any difference.
    All the received flights are showing well in red and obtaining signals from distances of over 200nm.

    Thanks,

    Nigel,

    Fire up Radarview and you'll find a section entitled 'settings' on the left hand side (click on it to expand) where you can import your files (including Basestation.ini file, wpt. and out. files) using a basic and familiar search function. Of coarse, this assumes that you have these files in the first place. When you're running a Basestation SBS-1 (as I do) with this software on board that's very simple. Not sure what you can do if you are not.

    ... and you're absolutely correct. It does enhance the Radarview display.

    Regards,
    Gregg

    The SBS-1 Basestation I'm using includes range rings but as to whether they are in the wpt. files or not I cant say for certain. My unit isn't running at the moment and I may not be able to check until it is. I'll try checking the 'ini' file, wpt. files and 'out.' (outline files) and see if I can work it out. I suspect at present it's an 'out.' file and I don't know for sure if these are able to be used by Radarview. Perhaps they can be. I've also added some downloaded files to Basestation and adjusted a few of those so it's likely we can help.

    Regards,
    Gregg

    'out' files are usable in Radarview so if I can find the file containing the rings (I've got quite a few files to search) I'll see if I can post it on here for you. They may need adjustment as the rings are a little larger than you require. I'll also have to wait until my unit is running as then I can isolate each file individually. Probably better than trying to trudge through the files longhand.

    In the meantime some one else may come up with something to help you out.

    There may be some delay re getting to your issue as I've got a problem with my receiver (or at least the amp) which may take some time to sort out. Apologies for this.

    Thanks again. That port/network info I posted above may not even be relevent (a furfy) as on the same tab I can select either network or USB so it seems to be more related to how I feed the data into my PC rather than anything else. As I said I'll continue to suss it out (bumble along) and see how I go.

    ... and you've reminded me that I operate an 'SBS-1' unit too so that'll now be corrected in future posts (I'm getting too old for this tech stuff/detail mate). That write/read may be a part of the issue as well.

    Regards,
    Gregg

    Depending on how you have basestation setup, if it is grabbing re-sending on 30003 too, this will likely require a port reset command performed before radarview, also listening on 30003 can get a proper stream.

    Might need to check your local data in/out flow
    Thanks Oblivian,

    I could have made that clearer. I run the SBS Basestation only (an earlier version from before the 'ER' came out) and I actually think it may be an incompatability issue that is present or that I have introduced in setting up my hardware/software with old files/folders from the days of XP/Vista onto Windows 8.1. Not real sure about your other points re the ports etc (I'm not that smart) but I'll see what I can suss out.

    One of the benefits that suits me about Basestation is that I just have to 'instal and run' so doesn't place any tech burden on me to do so. Hence a drawback is I dont learn anything of that other detail you spoke of. I did at their (support) request try my IP address as the 'source' in Radarview but no luck there either. I've had a small win in that it works for a short period, I just need to figure out how to extend that to 'normal.'

    The reason for posting was to simply let them know I'm making some progress.

    Thanks again and Regards,
    Gregg

    I've just done a quick check in Basestation and it may help. The network address is 127.0.0.1 and port 10001 in 'hardware settings.' I'm not entirely sure at all if this is significant.
