  1. Does running the AFV Client or xPilot as admin make any difference? Have these applications also been allowed through the Windows firewall as inbound rules? Are you able to try connecting via XSquawkBox?
  2. Just for clarification, you've connected using the Audio For VATSIM Client and xPilot separately on different occasions and haven't been able to receive audio on either? Also to check, have you selected receive on your aircraft's radio in X-Plane?
  3. The 'correct' route, per the Standard Route Document (SRD) that @Koen Meier has linked to, is DTY DCT WCO DCT MID. Then join the KIDLI1G at MID. I think this is just a case of one or both of the controllers not being familiar with this route and getting confused because it's not very common. It's also a bit awkward as you join the STAR at MID, not KIDLI. I wouldn't worry about it. Controllers and pilots make mistakes and airborne re-routes will be given from time to time. The SRD lists all the 'preferred' routes for flights within the UK so if you consult that, 99% of the
  4. In this situation you don't need any clearance to 'join controlled airspace'. Assuming you're flying an airliner at a sensible flight level, from Glasgow all the way to Heathrow you'll be within what we consider to be controlled airspace (ie not airspace class G, if you're familiar with airspace classes). You'll depart Glasgow announcing your intentions on unicom and climb up to your cruise level at your own discretion. As you approach the sector boundary for MAN_CTR, you'll then check in with the controller on frequency. There's no need to request any form of clearance, but after
  5. Hi Ross, I've just experienced this for the first time today (I think this is the same issue?). Crashes on tessellating polygons, however I was able to get the app to launch after a few attempts. I didn't need to delete any config files. (Sorry, I'd upload these as .txts but the forum doesn't allow that attachment) This is what the Error item in event view gives: Faulting application name: VATSpy.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5fbdce20 Faulting module name: nvoglv64.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x5f75532b Exception code: 0xc000041d Faul
  6. I believe the AFV client uses the native Stream Deck SDK, bypassing the Stream Deck desktop app. So no profile editing is required. The fact you're asking makes me think your Stream Deck isn't being recognised? There was an issue with certain Stream Deck hardware revisions not being recognised. I'm not sure if that's been fixed yet.
  7. This happens when the FF transponder is set to Standby. Flick the switch to 'Auto' and the aircraft will start sending the correct transponder code.
  8. What's your Stream Deck model number? I believe the latest hardware revision (20GAA9902) doesn't currently work with the AFV application.
  9. Normally, but Farnborough isn't on that list! Which I think is the issue here. @Jeff Hall With regards to Farnborough, it's the same as Gatwick: LTC_SW - LTC_S - LTC - LON_D - LON_S - LON_SC - LON I'll point it out and see if it can be added to the area sector list
  10. I don't have my own public IP address as my ISP uses CGNAT and have no issues using VATSIM or AfV. As far as I understand it, if someone has access to an IPv4 address, even if they're behind ISP NATs, they should still be able to use VATSIM. Are there any ISPs that offer IPv6 only? I'm not aware of any. That doesn't sound like a very useful service at the moment.
  11. Hi, I don't know if this is a Euroscope issue or a vatsim.net issue. What source does Euroscope use for METARs? Recently, ES has randomly given me random out of date METARs amongst the correct METARs. I've just been on EGCC_1_APP and had the correct 1750z METAR: EGCC 041750Z AUTO 07010KT 9999 FEW035 13/05 Q1021 This was correct as per metar.vatsim.net (as well as NOAA): Then I randomly got this new METAR from 0020z: Other controllers adjacent to me reported having the correct 1750z METAR, and pressing 'GET METAR' in the ATIS popup
  12. Hi, I've just came across this thread, so I'm a little late but I've noticed the new Scottish Control STC position isn't included: EGPX|Scottish|STC| Additionally, for any future updates, no airports in Equatorial Guinea are currently defined in VATSPY: Equatorial Guinea|FG| FGAB|Annobon|-1.410278|5.621944||FCCC|0 FGBT|Bata|1.905556|9.805556||FCCC|0 FGMY|President Obiang Nguema Int|1.690000|11.023889||FCCC|0 FGSL|Malabo|3.755278|8.708611||FCCC|0 Also, a couple of other airports I've noticed missing from the 2016 update (that have traffic and/or ATC regularly):
