  1. As Ross says. Ever since I started using VAT-Spy at the start of my VATSIM "journey", I thought the application crashed every now and then, with no way of reopening it without rebooting the computer. After some years of hearing people having the same problem, and not bothering to check what was going on myself, I suddenly saw VAT-Spy in the system tray after a "crash". Little did I know, the application didn't crash, it was just minimized, and opening another instance didn't work. After I learned this, I started telling people about it and what do you know; everyone had the same problem.
  2. WOW, removing the minimize function is going to help a lot of people, thanks Ross!
  3. [moved to vPilot support] Yes, I have encountered the same thing, albeit this is most likely an MSFS issue and not a vPilot issue, and has something to do with the way the simulator handles frequencies. Hopefully there will be an fix to these types of communication issues in the future.. ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Hi, Chuck! The Pilot Rating system is completely voluntary; you do not need to complete those exams in order to fly on the VATSIM network. ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. Please don't write in all caps. Also, describe your issue a bit better, what are you trying to do, what error are you getting, etc?
  6. If you can connect just fine to the network but get an error when connecting to voice, that's generally a capitalization issue in the password you entered when logging in. While the FSD server does not care about capitalization, the voice server does. If you're unsure about the exact format of your password you can always request a password reminder at https://cert.vatsim.net/vatsimnet/statcheck.html.
  7. Replied to you on the Discord, Matthew, but to reiterate: The point you have with the wording is absolutely valid. It was a definition we started using in the planning phase which just got stuck. We will definitely revise it for the next event, thanks for the feedback!
  8. The real world pilot is correct, the controller should not clear you to a waypoint not on your route. That being said, there might be some FAA regulations allowing the controller to do it, but it's a bit frowned upon either way as it takes you off your route and no a non-standard point away from your flight plan. In those situations, you can simply ask the controller what he means and he will either correct himself or explain why. ๐Ÿ™‚ Welcome to the network!
  9. Wow, this looks amazing! Good job!
  10. Might have been a problem with the dataserver. Issue should now be resolved ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. Welcome Andrew! First, are you able to properly connect to the network? If so the client will display a yellow messaged with something like ยซconnected to network...ยป. Do you get that, or a red warning?
  12. No is the answer. ๐Ÿ™‚ https://vasops.vatsim.net/ Application guidelines is under "apply"
  13. Hi Andreas! We are currently building a brand-new website, which will replace the existing one. The new one will be tailored to the 16:9 aspect ratio, thus updating the current one is not a priority. ๐Ÿ™‚ remember, you can view the new events calendar by going to https://my.vatsim.net/events
  14. I know they are very much aware of it. I personally believe that we fall short here as a market minority. Also, "fixing" IFR and the navigational issues is a much larger task than fixing a commonly requested minuscule feature. I know Navigraph is aware and talking with Asobo, and I am sure they'll come up with a solution to this, but unfortunately, things take time.. I would very much recommend the A320 mod though, there's finally airway implementation coming very very soon and plenty of bug fixes and new features coming every release. VATSIM is a spotlight partner, one of the support
  15. Welcome to the network, Christian! I've talked to countless people having the same concern you currently have. While it's understandable in a network with people across all age groups, you have nothing to worry about. People sometimes like to make jokes about the "squeakers" on the network, being unprofessional, 'noobs' and what not. The reality is that it's the "squeakers" who are one of the more professional and knowledgeable groups on our network. The new generation's ability to suck in information from the internet gives you a huge advantage over the older generations who struggl
  16. I don't usually wander into the AVSIM forums, but I read through your posts. You have many valid points, but it's easy to judge the simulator based on what you see at the current stage. I agree, the simulator at its current level lacks a great deal you would expect to have when flying on VATSIM. However we who fall under the "hardcore simulation enthusiast" have always relied on third party development to get up to par with our standards. Yes, MSFS have had a rough start, but with time the bugs and flaws will be ironed out, and I have no problem seeing that this very easily might become t
  17. Hi Andreas, While there's not much light shed on it, a lot has happened within ATC training since this post was created and the training hotline existed. Back then (2010) a month was an incredibly long time to wait, and its purpose was to deal with inefficient mentors and instructors, or very inefficient training systems. However, in a decade VATSIM has grown exponentially, and so has VATSIM Scandinavia. As of right now, there are a vast amount of people in queue for training in Norway. With all of the staff and mentors doing this on a voluntary basis, it doesn't really matter how m
  18. You can change your email, but you cannot change your password unfortunately. I am not sure how long it will take to fix, but I will *try* to remember to update you once it's resolved. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, can you just confirm that you are viewing the page in English and not translating it to another language?
  19. Hi, and welcome! You wonโ€™t get full access to your profile before you complete the course. Can you wait 20 more minutes, then see if you still canโ€™t access the course? This is an issue we have currently, we will try to look into it! Sorry for the inconvenience.
  20. You have to do that, otherwise that might interfere with VATSIM's injection, and also create confusion as to what is VATSIM traffic and not. Set Multiplayer to "group", and AI traffic to "off". ๐Ÿ™‚
  21. Short answer; not yet - continue using 122.800. Long answer: Down the line, the plan is to implement local CTAF frequencies. However there is a multitude of problems and issues to resolve before that can happen. Firstly, CTAF frequencies for all airports in the world would need to be documented, structured and implemented in AFV, which is a colossal task. Secondly, those frequencies would need to be shown in the clients in an organized and easy-to-understand way so that everyone, including complete beginners understand which frequency to use. Without that, the whole purpose of
  22. Hmmm, it might be a problem with MSFS SimConnect integration, if I recall correctly this is a known problem. There might be a workaround, but official support is uncertain at the moment..
