Command line parameters

When you start EuroScope you can pass the following command line parameters:

  • -numpad - This options forces EuroScope not to use the numpad number keys. You may assign them to other programs as shortcut keys.
  • -noautolog - If you feel that the longer sessions use too much memory with the automatic LOG feature, you can disable it with this option.
  • name of the profile file - If yo specify a file name in the command line, then it will be used as profile file and there will be no prompt for it, nor the last saved is used.


Load profile

If you start EuroScope for the first time or if you opted not to load the last profile on startup, after starting the program it will prompt you for the profile file. It is strongly suggested that you always define here a valid, existing or non existing file. If the file exists many computer related parameters are saved here and loaded on startup.


Inital messages

Some of the messages you may see at the bottom of the splash screen. But as the splash disappear all previous messages are moved to the Message TAB of the chat area. Here you can see the initialization activity LOG. First it loads the local files:

  • Starting up message ...
  • Loading of different kind of settings data ...
  • Loading of AIRAC data with the loaded version ...
  • Loading of ICAO files ...
  • Loading of the last SCT and ESE files ...
  • Loading the server description files ...

Then some other data from the Internet:

  • Downloads the VATSIM status file ...
  • It selects one server for server data and one for data feed ...
  • It downloads the available servers, and if not disabled then the online pilots and controllers from the data feed ...
  • Finally it checks the EuroScope website to see if there is a newer version of the program available ...
  • Time to time it loads sector file descriptions if auto update is enabled ...
