  1. I started responding to a thread where someone was asking about the current status of new audio codecs to be used on VATSIM to improve audio quality. I then however realized I was responding to a thread that was more than 1 year old. And I also realized I started derailing from audio quality discussions to other things as well. So I figured the best thing probably is to create a fresh and new thread instead so here goes... Interesting how there seem to be two camps here where one camp keeps claiming the audio quality on VATSIM is even better vs RL while the other camps claims the oppos
  2. Moved to it's separate topic over here -> https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=78339
  3. Not sure if there is some other place where people discuss swift considering how empty it is in here...? One thing I would like to ask is if we still need to have AI models enabled in X-Plane to have online traffic show up on TCAS like in the Zibo mod?
  4. Long after posting about this issue and after learning to live with it I finally found the solution by chance! It had nothing to do with my browser or anything like that. Or at least not directly. What I found fixed the issue was when I went to https://stats.vatsim.net/dashboard.php where I was asked to logon using my Vatsim ID and p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word. After entering my credentials, answering 'Yes' to the question from Chrome if I wanted to save the p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word as well as checking the box to stay logged on, I finally have the Vatsim ID and p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]wo
  5. Ok, thanks for the info. Guess I'll play around with this setting and see what value I end up with.
  6. Ok, so how many AI aircraft should I set in XP11?
  7. Since I'm not using any other plugins related to traffic, I guess the problem then is with the Zibo mod. I know this has been mentioned also by flightdeck2sim when doing his streams in the Zibo mod. Thanks for the info though and let's hope this issue will eventually be addressed further down the road. Could you please just confirm what the correct setting for AI aircraft in XP11 (v11.26) is? Checking the docomeentation for XSquawkbox it talks about selecting at least 8 aircraft under rendering settings. Would this be the same as AI aircraft when setting up a new flight from the main m
  8. I'm doing all my flying in the Zibo 737-800X and one thing I would be more than happy if there was a way to fix is how I get constant "ghost" traffic on my TCAS triggering both TAs and even RAs sometimes. I'm guessing the traffic I get are XP aircraft since as I recall it from back when I was setting up XSquawkbox, you had to keep AI aircraft in XP for Vatsim aircraft to show up or something along those lines. Is there anything you can do about this to avoid all these fake TAs and RAs not triggered by other online aircraft on Vatsim?
  9. Thanks for the link but I already have Chrome configured to save p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]words and it's working perfectly fine for any other website where both my usernames and p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]words are saved with no issues. What is so weird and as mentioned above, I had this issue before and all of a sudden it started working again without me realizing what I did to make that happen. Oh well, not a big deal. I'll just keep typing my p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word. At least it remembers my VATSIM ID. The VATSIM ID field isn't pre-populated which is usually the case for other website
  10. Would still really love to know what is causing this. Can't believe I'm the only one having this issue all of a sudden?
  11. I don't have such a key in my browser's (Chrome) URL field I'm afraid. What I find strange is that Chrome normally always offer to remember both user names and p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]words for pretty much every site I visit. But in this case, it does remember by VATSIM ID (when I click the VATSIM ID box my VATSIM ID pops up so I can click on it) but for the p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word...I have to type it manually every time. Really odd because as mentioned earlier, this used to work just fine. I actually remember having the very same issue when I tried out MS Edge for a while and then
  12. Ah, I see. Just tried what you suggested and I'm already logged in when starting up the browser again.
  13. When I logon to these forums, I get the screen below where I need to confirm my identity. As you can see, the p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word has a red cross which I guess means the p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word isn't saved. Not sure though if that explains why the p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word field sending flight plans using the link above isn't automatically populated anymore. And how to get a green check also for the p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word.
  14. This is the form used and I'm thinking it might have to do with the VATSIM SSO stuff. https://cert.vatsim.net/fp/file.php Not sure though why it doesn't pick up my credentials anymore.
  15. I'm using SimBrief to create my flight plans and for some reason when filing my flight via SimBrief bringing up the form seen below, my VATSIM ID and p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word are no longer pre-filled like they used to be. Any idea what could be the cause?
  16. Fair enough, thanks for what you've done up to this point
  17. Brilliant news Was a long time now since I last used it and a couple of suggestions to make it even better: - use a more colorful representation of ATC on the map to make it easier to spot online ATC - add an option to enter your own VID in order to be able to find and track yourself on the map - maybe also be able to add friends by their VIDs to be able to track them as well - add list views for pilots and ATC That was all I could come up with for the moment
  18. Hmm...did it change its name from FSRadar to something else? I can't find it in Google Play store searching for it.
  19. Waking up my own old thread since I'm still in the same situation looking for a good Android app for VATSIM and wanted to ask if something new happened since I asked about this last time. Been using Vattastic on my simulator PC but would really like being able to use my PC exclusively for flight simulation rather than ALT-TAB'ing between various stuff. Doing this spoils quite a bit of the immersion IMO. What I'm looking for is an app that would allow me to see both online ATC and pilots, get METAR information, ATC frequencies etc. Vattastic is a really good web-based service but un
  20. Now I feel like a complete stupid! I just realized the reason I couldn't find Ryanair in the airline list was I didn't first remove SAS from the field below. Apparently, SAS was acting like a "filter" where I would only see airlines in the list containing 'SAS'. After replacing SAS with RYR, sure enough Ryanair showed up in the list for me to pick. Sorry for wasting your time
  21. Are you sure about that? Reason for my question is I found this in the xSquawkbox docomeentation on page 5 where it seems like you need to fill out these fields in order for others to see you correctly. "The aircraft, airline and livery you pick in XSquawkBox are used to tell other pilots on the network what your plane looks like." Will dig some more trying to figure out what text file I need to modify. Must be one of those I found unless the airlines in the list are hard-coded in the client which I highly doubt.
