SimControlX – Version 1.2.1 update with SimControlX Pro and more

🕔 June 25, 2019

Version 1.2.1 Update

We’ve just rolled out an update (version 1.2.1) for the SimControlX app and SimControlX Server. This update brings minor bug fixes and a couple of exciting new features!

Users of TFDi Design’s quality B717 aircraft will now be able to see some aircraft-specific options on their SimControlX app. This is a first step towards providing our users with more control when using third-party add-ons and aircraft with their simulators. We continue to try and work with more publishers to integrate their features into our app in the future.

We’re also very proud to announce the official launch of SimControlX Pro. SimControlX Pro is a server license upgrade for SimControlX Server, targeted at professionals and commercial use cases. SimControlX Pro  is designed to equip you with everything you need from an instructor station on an FAA approved BATD or AATD device. SimControlX Pro brings several new features to take your training to the next level. You can buy and learn more about SimControlX Pro here.

All existing users should look out for an update on their iPad app, and then use the installer from this website to install/update their server application and simulator plugins. Please make sure you update both the iPad app and the server application/plugins on your computer, before you try to use the app. Updating one but not the other, will lead to breakages. As always, the latest details on the updated install process and app usage can be found in our manual.

The SimControlX Server installer may be downloaded from our downloads page. The iPad app can be installed/updated from the App Store.

List of changes in this version –

  • Full support for SimControlX Pro
  • Integration of certain aircraft-specific features for TFDi Design’s B717
  • Other minor bugfixes
