  1. Ok Ross, Thank you for your advice. The situation is clearer now. Cheers, Lee
  2. Hi Ross, No, not quite. I was told that if I point the XML file at the PMDG texture set, it could slow down the system. So I should let vPilot load the VAP textures, but point it to a different model with less polygons - say, an FLAi one. That was the advice I got, but not sure if it can be done or how to do it. To be honest, there are only two of us who use these VAP AIR textures, so the "hit" may be minimal - so I'm happy to keep it linked to the PMDG set anyway. The other thing I'd like to do is be able to see my colleague's Aerosoft Airbus A330-300 VAP AIR livery - eve
  3. Ok, So I edited the VAP_Model_Matcing.XML file and it got accepted by vPilot! So now I have removed the file because I want to fine tune all this .... ******************************** I have the following aircraft installed into P3Dv4.5 - for which I also have a VAP modelset:- PMDG 737 NGXu; PMDG 747 QOTS II; PMDG 777-200LRF; FSLabs A320 X; MILVIZ MD530F Helicopter; MILVIZ B407 Helicopter (In Rotorcraft) In addition to the above, I also have the following sets - but I do NOT have the products installed on my system, but my colleague who flies wit
  4. Ross, you are a star! I never knew about having to run Notepad as Admin tobe able to edit these things! Blimey! I have learnt something today! Ok, I'll make the edits in the XML file above and try again. Thank you for taking the time to help me - it is appreciated. Regards, Lee
  5. Hi, I did some research on VMR files and came up with only this .... ********************** Opening a VMR File VMR File extension: VMR File type: VBMaximizer File What is a VMR file? The VMR file type is primarily associated with VBMaximizer File. How do you open VMR files? You need a suitable software like VBMaximizer File to open a VMR file. Without proper software you will receive a Windows message "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) or "Windows cannot open this file" (Windows 7) or a similar Mac/iPhone
  6. Ok, here is the content of the XML file - <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><ModelMatchRuleSet><ModelMatchRule CallsignPrefix="VAP" TypeCode="B744" ModelName="PMDG 747-400 Virtual Airline Pilot | G-VAPB" (2020) /><ModelMatchRule CallsignPrefix="VAP" TypeCode="B738" ModelName="PMDG 737-800NGXu VirtualAirlinePilot.ord (G-VAPD)" /><ModelMatchRule CallsignPrefix="VAP" TypeCode="B772" ModelName="Virtual Airline Pilot Boeing 777-200(LR) | G-VAPE" /><ModelMatchRule CallsignPrefix="VAP" TypeCode="A320" ModelName="FSLabs A320X CFM - VirtualAirlinePilot.org G-VA
  7. Hi, Yes, this is unfortunately NOT a typo! When the livery was created for us, the author created the typo and I guess I have kept it. Below is my P3D install path and I have so much trouble editing cfg files inside these folders due to Windows 10 forbidding me permissions! I have tried everything to allow me permission to freely make changes inside this - AND the Community folder of MFSF2020 - but even though I am Administrator, it will not work! c:\PROGRAM FILES\LOCKHEED MARTIN\PREPAR3DV4\SIMOBJECTS\AIRPLANES .... For P3D, the only way to make edits is to make a copy o
  8. Hi there, Yes, of course - thank you for that! See it now. I agree about the PMDG but wondering what other model I could use and how I could use it? Ok, just added the missing quote mark (") and saved the file. Upon trying to add it to vpilot, I now get the same error but this time it is (3.110) .... Not sure what is wrong Thank you, regards Lee
  9. Member 21 192 posts Posted 8 hours ago Hi, I have a Private Airline and there are just two pilots. This is a new project and since we both have the same aircraft and our own custom livery on each of those aircraft, I decided to try to create a new VMR file for placing into the vPilot Model Matching rule set so that when we were both online and logged into VATSIM/VPilot, we could see each other in our new paint job. Here is the code inside the initial XML file that I creat

  11. Hi, Not sure if this is the correct place to post this - Moderators please feel free to move the posting if required. Have posted in the VATUSA forum but with little success On Saturday 18th October 2014, with departures from 4pm local time, some 40 British Airways Virtual pilots will be departing from Orlando, Florida (KMCO) back to London Gatwick (EGKK) as part of our 17th OVERNIGHTER Fly-in event. We will be simulating the BA2034 service back to Gatwick and to add to the challenge, some of the pilots will be diverted into either Heathrow or Manchester, once they arrive into UK airs

  13. Folks, Sorry if this is not the right place to post this, but I could not email VAT MEXICO directly via the website. " ... Yes, British Airways Virtual is coming to Mexico City on Saturday 24th May 2014! We are scheduling one of our famous OVERNIGHTER events to take place during the day - and Mexico is the target! Some 40 flights will operate long haul, in real time, from London Heathrow, non-stop to Mexico City (MMMX) and we would like to arrange on-line ATC on VATSIM for our arrival. Please can someone respond to this post with an email address so I can supply more det
  14. Romano, Thanks for that - I really appreciate the sentiment. It started about 3 years ago when I did a long haul, real time night flight out of Heathrow to Hong Kong. Logged on to VATSIM for the flight and suddenly found 6 other flights behind me. By the time I was south of Arabia, this had spread to 10 flights! Out of the 10, I believe 7 made it in with the rest getting lost along the way somewhere or ending up asleep! OVN 10 is a special for us and will take place on VATSIM again at the mid to end of May this year. Thanks again, Lee
  15. Hello there, Not sure quite where to post this publically since we cannot get into the ZMA forum - but I would just like to say a HUGE thank you to VATSIM Miami for the sterling job they did in getting us all away last night! We had over 40 flights out of KMIA headed north and east towards the UK on our OverNighter 9 Miami Getaway Event. Pretty much all of us made it back to the UK, landing around 5:00am UK time where VATSIM UK turned out for us early this morning to bring us all home. Can I specifically mention Daniel Channani and Bob Carmona, the former who was the first Contro
