  1. The other day, I dragged it from desktop to task bar by accident and it seems like it's been working ok. I do have Webroot too, but I see it's in the my allowed list. On task bar it loads the .exe, so it's not a shortcut....
  2. 1.1.0-beta.8 does a CTD and has nothing in Windows Event logs. Any ideas?
  3. solved...I un[Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned PTT left control key in VRC and set it AV.
  4. As ATC, for PTT I cannot set like left control key. Some other keys work, but when I do control-F, it just shows F as the selected key.
  5. Almost near painful boredom as ATC: we need the ability to add or remove AI / robots as we see fit.
  6. I connected to another controllers voice channel and eventually got it working. I think the key was to save the config as per the docomeentation.
  7. Is there a way to verify that I will be able to hear pilots so I know that I have configured VRC (and my computer) correctly?
  8. Thanks, I'll try to get my eyes up there next time something seems suspicious.
  9. Is there a disconnect message that appears when you are...disconnected? Is there a way to tell that you are still connected?
  10. I've become an RSS junkie, is it available here?
  11. Thanks, it was the *.*.*.*
  12. I have this Asus RT-N56U router with custom firmware. For port forwarding, it wants a source ip, port range, local ip, port, tcp/udp/both. The last three I get my VRC machine and port 3290 and udp. What should I put in for source, port range? and 3290?
  13. I wonder if clients are still based on old RogerWilco, which uses UDP. UDP is transmission is not guaranteed where tcp is guaranteed. This is probably why a lot of people say, when I use Skype it works perfectly, but this I get breakups etc.. (and the other ATC network is perfect to the point of not being "real", but this one I get breakups-too real, but too much). RW was the frontrunner in voice with gaming. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Wilco_(software)
  14. Another +1 for improving voice. My primary issue is with my isp where voice is very choppy so I constantly have to say "say again?". Usually I get the gist, but... This was one of my primary reasons for giving up controlling, I just couldn't deal with it.
  15. utLive had some GA traffic option that was on. Also, there's an option under Add On menu to disable utLive.
  16. IS there a way to tell if traffic that I am seeing is ai or vatsim traffic? I have a good amount of GA traffic around NYC now at 10 a.m. My G:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\Scenery\World\scenery only has ship traffic in it and ai is set to 0, except for ship traffic. I did not explicitly load utLive.
  17. I don't know if you fixed your problem, but I had similar strange issues and ran a usb cleaner then plugged things in one at a time. I don't remember which software I used, but it helped start over.
  18. I remember having good times with Tom at the first SATCO Convention in Kansas City and the second (founding of VATSIM) in Toronto. R.I.P.
  19. ugh, somehow I missed this announcement http://www.flightsimcon.com I'm out sailing tomorrow instead.
  20. I noticed I believe it's FWINN with all the red/green mini icons seems to still load. I unloaded it and I think all voice all comms stopped (or was chatter just slow?). Anyone else confirm that?
  21. haha, actually we southerners know that it's better to blow and shovel the stuff every couple hours than to kill yourself doing it once as it weighs ten tons. I went out twice each day Thursday and Friday. The end of the driveway was almost impossible with my snow blower too.
  22. There was something wrong with ours when it started up (i.e. power supply or disk etc.. which happens all to often when something is powered down very few times.) -------- Apparently as of now it is available.
  23. The NY website is down for about another 24 hours after yesterdays scheduled power maintenance. If you desperately need anything, please let me know. Sorry for any inconvenience.
  24. I hope you consider other days and hours. I fly from KJFK and usually arrive Saturday 1430 to about 1530 local in HECA.
