  1. I am not having this problem, with the latest version of MSFS. Does it only happen when you connect and there are other aircraft nearby?
  2. Are you aware that you are running vPilot in remote mode? This is for when you want to run vPilot on a machine other than the machine where your simulator is running.
  3. Hi Declan, That is a change that I made intentionally. I found it frustrating that the tab key moves from the Aircraft Type field to the dropdown list. This is because most people (including myself) type in the correct code to begin with, and have no need to move the focus to the dropdown list. It is better to move the focus to the next field. Can you use the down arrow key to move into the dropdown list?
  4. No, there is no communication between TCAS systems on VATSIM, or any other online flying network that I'm aware of.
  5. Have a look at the vPilot documentation for observer mode and you'll see why that didn't work.
  6. Interesting ... the only thing I changed was some logic in how vPilot handles deleted aircraft in MSFS. My best guess is that your antivirus or firewall software was somehow interfering with the startup, and downloading the new version made it stop since the exe is now different. Just a wild guess, though.
  7. You can't both be using the same callsign, the server doesn't allow that.
  8. Until I find time to redo the model matching settings as I described above, I changed the label on the Default Model text box to make it more clear. I also added a "Reset" button that sets the value back to the original value set by vPilot. These changes are in v2.6.8 which is currently only available in the Beta updates channel, so it won't hit everyone until I mark it as Stable, but I'll do that soon, as long as I don't get any bug reports from Beta users.
  9. While we wait for Asobo to fix the issue, I've implemented a workaround in vPilot version 2.6.8:
  10. This version adds a workaround for aircraft being deleted when you change the time or weather in MSFS. The aircraft will still be deleted, since they are deleted by MSFS, not vPilot, but vPilot will attempt to re-add the aircraft after 10 seconds. (vPilot cannot attempt to re-add them immediately, because in some cases, such as when aircraft are deleted by the sim when you go to the main menu, that will fail and throw a nasty error message.) If you have vPilot configured to download updates from the Beta channel, it will automatically update to this version. Otherwise, you can grab it fro
  11. No idea ... so far I've only had it reported that it happens when the user changes the weather.
  12. vPilot detects supported simulators by looking in the registry. For MSFS, it looks for these keys: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\FlightSimulator.exe\InstallLocation SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\FlightSimulator.exe\Path SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Steam App 1250410\InstallLocation SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Steam App 1250410\Path SOFTWARE\Valve\Steam\Apps\1250410\InstallLocation SOFTWARE\Valve\Steam\Apps\1250410\Path It looks for these keys under both HKEY_LOCAL_
  13. vPilot does not scan aircraft.cfg files for MSFS, but the title line from the aircraft.cfg file is still what you use when you create a custom VMR file.
