  1. vPilot does not provide model matching liveries, it is simply the pilot client. FLAi was what the community used for several years on VATSIM for model matching for most sims, but the AI developers changed their minds about allowing their packages to be downloaded via the very easy-to-use FLAi package. So, currently, your alternatives appear to be for freeware, use AIG (very clunky download and install methodology IMO) or purchase payware.
  2. No. Those are the ways to change frequency in vPilot.
  3. It's definitely worth it. And you'll find folks here that will be happy to help you with swift (I don't use it so I'm afraid I can't) or help you with vPilot if you post in the vPilot forums. The community is very helpful!
  4. This is not an advertisement or an endorsement for a specific map program. There are many excellent ones out there. The information that the data feed was changing was published in November, and again more widely in December, with reminders since. One standalone program that many, perhaps most, people like is VAT-Spy. One web-based map program that many people like is map.vatsim.net But like I say, there are many excellent ones out there.
  5. Korab, I'm not sure if you were asking about your duplicate account (which is now disabled, by the way). And your message didn't say what you were trying to log into. But if it was your duplicate account, and if you were asking about connecting to the network, the issue is that you didn't complete the new member orientation on the duplicate account. Don't bother; that account has now been disabled. If you were asking about your primary account, and if you were asking about connecting to the network, I can see that you passed the new member orientation exam this morning (certainly not 4
  6. I can barely spell code, never mind commit the act, but in my experience, being more descriptive with respect to, at least, what errors you receive, is generally helpful. Also, shot in the dark, because I don't know what errors you're getting, are you ensuring your flight plan in its entirety (e.g. all fields combined) is less than 768 characters? Sometimes when leveraging programs like PFPX / Simbrief / etc. a lot of "garbage" is included in the comments field. If your flight plan might be over 768 characters, that's often an easy place to look to start deleting "garbage" to red
  7. There are many such posts on the forums. Most common answers: If you're running McAfee, make sure you add an exclusion for AFV. If that doesn't work, if you're running McAfee, disable real-time scanning. A couple of other folks have suggested checking your Windows permissions for the microphone.
  8. @Bob KlemmBob, I've ever only heard that issue when either the sim or vPilot was *not* being run as Admin. I know you said they both were, but can you double check that?
  9. Your account is active and all systems are normal. You should very carefully type your password, or very carefully cut and paste it, while very carefully ensuring you are not copying any extra [space] characters.
  10. I'm a little confused. You have opened 3 support tickets (one would have done 🙂 ) and posted this, all 3 hours after passing your exam. The support ticket was the right way to go. The general membership here on the forums could not help you. In any case, you passed your exam at 1038Z today. You're all set. If you think there was a technical issue with respect to the exam, you can contact the VP Pilot Training, Ethan Hawes, at [email protected]
  11. And, four minutes after you posted this, you passed your exam... So, I assume you found it.... 🙂
  12. Update: Recent improvements have dramatically minimized the time between server synchronizations. As a result, though we used to advise that it could take up to 24 hours for the server synchronizations to complete, our new guidance is now "normally up to an hour". Great news for our members enthusiastic to get online!
  13. If you recently joined, have you completed the New Member Orientation Program? Before you are able to log onto the online VATSIM servers, you must review the New Member Orientation Course and then pass a short exam. After successfully passing the exam, your account status will become active, and normally within one hour after passing the exam, you may log on. If you are looking for your New Member orientation, please login to my.vatsim.net and click on the link that is shown immediately after login. If you are looking for your New Member exam, please login to my.vatsim.net an
  14. [slightly frustrated] It appears that reading is a lost art.... You posted this to the forum just 19 minutes after passing the P0 exam..... [/slightly frustrated]
  15. Hi Carlos, You did the right thing by opening a ticket. And I'm glad you opened it with Technology; something's intermittently broken on their end 🙂 However, in the meantime, while they look for and fix the cause, I've activated your account. You should be able to log on anywhere between 4-24 hours from now (hopefully on the sooner end 🙂 ).
