  1. Hi All, I have Sound/Communication settings set to Do Nothing - have had it like that for a very, very long time too without issues. Regardless of this, vPilot, and only vPilot, will cause other background applications to be dimmed down from time to time. Frequently, the background applications will also never return to their normal sound levels. Also noting, changing P3D sound settings whilst vPilot is running, as well as changing windows audio settings whilst vPilot is running, confuses the living daylight out of vPilot (RX/TX transmissions, as well as audio levels).
  2. So I guess vPilot's also not being maintained? Even though they pushed how many updates and new versions over the last few months? I think at least 4, or 5 if memory serves me correctly? I will rather fly on IVAO, than use Swift. It's been discussed time, and time again in the past. There's HUNDREDS of ways, in which you can get devs interested to develop software to be used on VATSIM. It's VATSIM that chooses to be restrictive, not the devs. I personally, tried numerous times in the past (just like many others), and quite frankly, I got tired of trying to just get basic information...
  3. Swift, is bloatware - full of nonsense that is not needed. It's trying to do a little bit of everything, instead of doing one thing good. Say what you want. Sorry, but I've used Swift, I hated it, I will never use it - unless the entire GUI -drastically- changes. If VATSIM is for one second thinking to "force" swift down everyone's throat then I'm sorry. Bye bye VATSIM. My 2c. Use it, don't use it. Keep your flames for yourself, as I really don't care.
  4. Not wanting to be daft, but things like that has been checked, prior to making this post. If they don't want to modify the clients, or can't modify the clients, at this stage it would be even better (albeit more work) to just manually join TeamSpeak servers TBH. What I have noticed (and not only for me, but by monitoring HOURS and HOURS of Pilots and ATC streaming on Twitch), is that the audio is distorted by the UDP packets traversing over the Internet. When pilots and atc are close to each other, the audio is good (US to US, US to EU for example) for the most part. When the pilot a
  5. Because I am in Africa? And I would have expected by local Region/Division to partake in this discussion, which clearly hasn't happened.
  6. If you read my original post, and following ones... 1) VATSIM's Board of Governors has ALREADY ACKNOWLEDGED this. It's nothing new. The voice is a problem, finish. 2) I merely asked in the 12+ years that I've been lurking on and off VATSIM, what has changed in terms of Voice? The answer is clearly, nothing. 3) Given the fact that VATSIM's Board of Governors already in 2016 agreed to look at the voice issues... What has been done? Again, clearly, nothing. This isn't about my voice is good, oh but mine is bad. VATSIM took a DECISION in 2016 to overhaul the voice. What has happene
  7. Ok. Well then sorry I asked. I shall refrain from the pleasures of ATC then.
  8. I mean, I've mentored students listening to their frequency, and have been talking to them in TeamSpeak too. There are many times I can't make out what they say on-frequency but can in TeamSpeak. Exactly. I also have absolutely zero problems with my headset (or the controllers with theirs) on IVAO for example. I hear them perfectly - 99% of the time. The problem isn't headsets, it's not internet connections. This is a VATSIM problem, and it's the audio codec that is being used, that is donkey years old. It's really as simple as that. EDIT: In 2016 the VATSIM Board of Go
  9. Hi Guys, I've seen posts asrecent as 2016 about this, I've been a member on VATSIM as far back as 2005... When can we expect VATSIM to actually do something about audio on the network I don't mean to be rude, and please don't take this as being rude either. The quality of the audio on VATSIM is a serious show stopper for me. It's unbearable to fly like this with ATC on-line. Whether I'm flying locally in ZA, the UK, the US, I can't hear, nor understand most controllers, most of the time. 100/100Mbps FTTH connection, absolutely no problems with my Internet connection, and
  10. Yes my mistake Ali I'm getting confused between all the options!!! I am busy to do SA365 from FAJS to FACT right now actually
  11. Thanks Ali, I've been to the site before, but must admit, I forgot about it Did apply, failed my test... LOL. Will try again in a couple of days... Cheers!
  12. Hiya Does any of the above VAs exist yet?? I couldn't find any on VATSIM or VATAME. What about starting one (or more) ? I'm more than happy to jump into the deep side here and start them myself, but I may need allot of help however, more in the lines of regulations / policy if anything... If anyone's interested, please drop me a note! Thanks,
