  1. I love the way you've used bits like a real programmer! 🙂
  2. Changing Wx or Time settings always causes the aircraft to disappear for me too.
  3. G'day, Just checking if this was enough information to help or whether there is more desired - I didn't capture the .debug window but changing the time in MSFS results in 100% reproducible loss of aircraft.
  4. Apparently it is offline in an entirely different way, altogether, but it shouldn't prevent core functions from working.
  5. I'm getting the same thing so it's not just you. 🙂
  6. But I do like that holding the ctr mouse button down allows you to pan across to look, then when you release it snaps the view back - very neat.
  7. @Ross Carlson edit: vPilot version 2.6.7 All MSFS traffic off After vPilot is connected, if I change the Time in MSFS using the slider, the aircraft that were 'Active' status in the .aircraft windows disappear from the window (and MSFS) and reappear in the .aircraft window as 'Ignored', no longer showing in MSFS. Disconnect and reconnect doesn't fix, but if I close vPilot , open it again and reconnect, they're back as 'Active' and in MSFS.
  8. Another way to think of this - it's no different from trying to fly the default aircraft in P3D. The big tin aren't the only sort of aircraft, a C172 entering CTA in P3D is exactly the same as a C172 entering CTA in MSFS. So MSFS is supported, but the 787 is not a full simulation - when the high end addon aircraft are available in MSFS we'll have a great scenery generator and great airliner avionics. 🙂
  9. Just a couple of things I noticed that aren't in the doco (yet); ChangeLog: https://vatsys.sawbe.com/downloads/changelog.html ATIS: With a text ATIS window displayed, middle-click to 'acknowledge' the ATIS and it will change color from Yellow to Red. When the ATIS updates the text in the window will turn Yellow again as a quick visual indicator of a change. AIS Window: Right-click an entry in the AIS window to 'pop it out' so you can see the complete data. Tower View: vatSys is compatible with vPilot's 'Tower
  10. Like me. Bugger. Well I have no other ideas...
  11. Tristan did you accept all the defaults or are you installing somewhere unusual...? Is it a personal machine or a work one with Group Policy restricting stuff?
  12. G'day; Just noticed the website https://audio.vatsim.net/ which shows up in internet searches contains broken links to the video and the forums. That is all. 🙂
  13. G'day; Couple of questions (3 actually!); Should the time alarm have an aural alert? I don't seem to get one on headset or speaker? Is there a way to add ad-hoc frequencies to the VSCS without an active controller callsign - I'm thinking CTAFs / Unicom /121.5 ? Is the 'NavData AIRAC cycle 1901...' error on startup expected, or should it automatically update the AIRAC data? Cheers John edit: and one more bonus one for fun; Is the background of the VSCS deliberately a different shade of grey compared to the other dialog boxes?
  14. Well the SDK is Simconnect so I don't think you have to worry about that 🙂
  15. Alexander; I don't fly online much these days, but have a history back to the very early days of SATCO. Since that time, the teams have tried to accommodate as best they can... and this even got to the point where it could be argued accommodation stood in the way of progress... For a few years I despaired at the analysis paralysis I saw in VATSIM, a reluctance to risk annoying anyone at all... In this instance I think you are right the changes could have been better communicated or handled, especially explaining that it caused major issues that affected the ability of others to
  16. Interestingly when I try to go into the 'XPlane User Discussion' sub-forum I just get the main 'Board Index' page loading... i.e. the following url (copy/paste from the page) : https://forums.vatsim.net/viewforum.php?f=36 results in me ending up at: https://forums.vatsim.net/index.php Notes: - Am logged in - Other subforums seem ok so far - tried IE and Edge (Chromium Canary stream - ie same engine as Google Chrome) and same result - tried an 'In Private' session and same result
  17. Already advised Gary through other channels but posting here for completeness - during WorldFlight we had a quirky experience with AFV - Using AFV with vPilot we encountered and error specific to the aircraft callsign after working fine for days... Issue: Everything running Connect vPilot - successful and remains connected throughout Connect AFV The AFV 'Connect' button switches to 'Disconnect' briefly (1/2rd second), then a dialog pops up with only the following and an 'OK' button: AFV error: POST api/v1/users/cid/callsigns/rego failed (InternalServerError - 'Core server de
  18. I'm sure you've thought of this Gary et al, but in the recesses of my WorldFlight beverage altered memory I recall an issue in the past where connections were lost because the persons internet router would timeout on the UDP session... I wonder if some of the disconnects may result from this issue? If so people may need to change the default timeout interval.
  19. Hoppies CPDLC is open and free - all the information required to integrate is on his website, including the source code in Tcl/Tk http://www.hoppie.nl/acars/system/tech.html http://www.hoppie.nl/src/ Hoppie is still around, but believe it or not he has moved from writing code for simulators as a hobby, to working for an avionics firm developing and installing similar communications technologies in aircraft around the world
  20. For you kids who were too young to notice at the time... (Get off my lawn!)
  21. .Net framework is a set of 'libraries' that programs can use to do things... It is not unusual to require this to be installed at some point - once installed, any programs that use require libraries in future will be able to use them. If anything, it's unusual that you havn't encountered a need to install it before!
  22. ... and if anyone has an equivelant (or larger) size pic of a 777 or NG MCDU could you post it here... tnx!
  23. Another MCDU skin from Worldflight Australia... 737 greenscreen. As with the previous Airbus version, read the enclosed Readme for installation instructions. Click Me to download from WorldFlight Australia.
