  1. Thank you for your quick reply, Ross.... Here we are: See the end of this message for details on invoking just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box. ************** Exception Text ************** System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ThrowExceptionForHRInternal(Int32 errorCode, IntPtr errorInfo) at NAudio.Wave.WasapiOut.Init(IWaveProvider waveProvider) at GeoVR.Client.Output.Start(String outputDevice, ISampleProvider sampleProvider) at GeoV
  2. When I launch vPilot, I now get an "unhandled exception has occurred in your application..." message. "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". It offers the option to continue but the voice part of vPilot does not seem to work if I continue. When I try to set up the audio section, nothing works. Any ideas why it suddenly started doing that? I did not change anything in vPilot, just "tweaked" some of my sound settings on my PC (mixer....) and on OBS without installing or uninstalling anything at all. vPilot has been working flawlessly for months and years, it just sud
  3. It is working, beautifu! Thank you very much.
  4. Hi guys, Just wondering if you have encountered issues with Servinfo recently? For the last week or so, I have been unable to download VATSIM data with Servinfo. "Loading" in red flashes in the top left corner, it says "receiving data" but nothing else happens.... Thanks
  5. Any breakthrough on this one....? Still seems to be extremely difficult to connect when things are busy.... So frustrating....!
  6. The more I experience the problem, the more I am convinced it is a question of data as I mentioned here on the forum before. I can stay connected for hours flying in any part of the world and have no issues at all, even talking to 1 or 2 controllers along the way. Then, if the total number of connections to VATSIM go above 900 or 1000 (for example in the evening or at the weekend), it suddenly becomes impossible to connect. The other day, I did notice, when I took off from an airport in Europe with only _APP but not a lot of traffic around, I managed to remain connected with no probl
  7. I did a packet drop test and after 30 seconds, it starts dropping packets like crazy..... It does not drop packets if you don't stress the test too much. This could explain why when there is a lot of traffic/data on VATSIM, a connection is not possible, but when things are quiet, a connection is possible. The thing is, if a connection is possible when VATSIM is quiet, then VATSIM in itself is possibly not blocked (other blocked software do not work at all, as you know). The ISP is possibly throttling back the connection, limiting the data that goes through.....not giving it its full capac
  8. Is the reason for those connection issues "packet drops"? I am puzzled as to how a VPN helps (from a technical point of view) as it usually tends to slow down the connection? What is the difference between those rubbish ISP connections and a connection via VPN?
  9. I am having the same problem....I can't seem to be able to change the ATIS frequency.
  10. Yeah maybe.... It certainly is not a configuration problem on my side since I eventually managed to remain connected twice for 45 minutes non stop, so my computer/sim/vpilot work OK and are properly configured. However, before managing to connect, I need to try several times.... What I am puzzled about is what the meaning of the warning message is, and why I do struggle to connect?
  11. I just managed to connect to be kicked off after 2 or 3 minutes with the followong message: "the server has failed to respond to the authentification challenge" On another attempt, the plane connection stabilised but the voice keeps disconnecting et reconnecting with the following message: "Disconnected from voice server. Reason: lost server connection. Voice will attempt to automatically reconnect. Connected to voice server. I just don't get it.....
  12. Hello, Using the latest vpilot version, I keep getting disconnected with mainly the following error message: Client Authentication response timeout. I have a relatively good internet connection. What is strange is that it sometimes works, but it will only connect after the 10th attempt or something, but will then drop after 5 or 10 minutes, sometimes 1 hour. Really strange. (same situation with Euroscope which actually always disconnects after 5 seconds but works perfectly with a VPN)
  13. As a suggestion to pilot connection software (like vPilot, etc...), would it be possible to show pilots they are, or are about to enter, in an area covered by a controller? Worldwide coverage is a huge task, I know, so maybe done by regions or even more locally. A bit like Euroscope knows what sectors does what and what the coordination requirements are (in the .ese file). Is something like that technically feasible for the pilot connection software? For example, a pilot is about to enter FIR B with ATC from FIR A with no ATC..... 5 minutes before entering FIR B, the pilot gets a no
  14. Hello, I know there are more important things in this world, but i would like to share some points. I find controlling very frustrating....I had not controlled in some time and getting back to it makes me wonder whether I will stick to it or not. There is a fair portion of pilots who don't make it particularly enjoyable to spend time behind the scope. I know we don't deal with professionals here, but still. Over the last few days, I have tried to offer ATC service in quite a large area for pilots to have ATC enroute and enjoy themselves. Controlling a relatively la
  15. Hello, Is it possible to keep your own personal tags and use them in different profiles? How do you keep your tags when updating the sector file and .ese file after each AIRAC change? I am a bit lost there.... it looks like you have to revert to the built in tags. Thanks
