Now that PFPX has been updated what are the future plans for its smaller brother TOPCAT. I'm posting here because the TOPCAT forum appears to have been abandoned with the last post nearly four years ago.

 

I do hope Christian and Judith will reply here and give us some positive news. Having bought TOPCAT in Feburary 2014 I have not been able to use it for a few years now as the aircraft I now fly are not supported.

I can see that Christian has visited this forum to answer some posts so I would appreciate an answer to mine please @FlightSimSoft.com

 

I emailed Christian directly back when we were testing EFB v2. He replied to my initial email, but ignored me after that when I asked for the source code to make additional TOPCAT profiles. He even said in a post on the TOPCAT forum that he would give them out to anybody who wants to make additional profiles. He's a shady character for some reason and nobody knows why.

Ian,

I can understand people protecting their intellectual property rights but if he offered the software - as opposed to the source code - then I don’t see the harm if it’s just to create new profiles. Maybe he just changed his mind but some form of statement would be appreciated by all TOPCAT users I’m sure.

 

He seems to logon first thing in the morning so hopefully we’ll have a reply tomorrow.

Please note that this is the official PFPX support forum, not for TOPCAT.

 

Fact is that Christian already had some users who tried to add aircraft profiles without success.

He experienced that it is much more time consuming to explain programmers how to add new types, so it would be the best if an ios programmer develope a new version which allows to add aircraft types by the users like it is for PFPX.

 

so if there is anyone here in the forum who has knowledge of iOS programming, Christian is willing to cooperate and ready to share the inputs.

 

Please use PM or our support ticket to get in contact with us, as this is the PFPX forum!

 

best regards 

judith
