  1. Here we go again. Complaints from pilots. Human nature I suppose. I had a great time, even with the Oceanic issues. CYYZ-LSZH, Nat Tango. I thought controllers performed flawlessly. I thought pilots were the underachievers. Wrong phraseology, missing transmissions from controllers, stepping on others like impatient babies because they just p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ed a reporting point in Oceanic airspace are just a few bad pilot behaviors observed. To the pilot above mad because he wanted text...are you kidding...an event like this expecting text sends you to the bottom of the queue. He
  2. 500 error for 20 minutes, gave up..the only thing worse...radio congestion on NAT tracks.
  3. What are the aircraft codes I should use for British Aerospace Avro RJ's? I have looked up, but am still confused. I think RJ85 is for logically, the RJ-85. Is RJ1H for the RJ-100? Thx Dave
  4. No. In fact it will eliminate most if not all matching errors. The number of models is extensive so the file is large. And no, it does not harm your system by installing their pilot client. Like yourself, I was reluctant. I went ahead after reading. Not at all disappointed. In fact, it is a thing a beauty, easily configured in vPilot. There is no need to spend $50ish for a traffic package. Dave
  5. ****Question**** All the IVAO files installed and are in the correct location. FXS.cfg is pointing to it also. Upon FSX startup I am being asked to run ivap_fsx_bootstrap.dll? Is this okay to run? My impression was that I needed to install the IVAO pilot client to get the MTL library. Did I miss a step or am I okay to proceed??
  6. Don/Justin Took your advice and loaded IVAO MTL. Tooks hours but I trust it will do the job. Don..I am always keen on paying attention to your inputs here as well as Mr. Carlson. vPilot is nothing short of well a well thought out analysis, solution, and implementation of a project. Too bad people do not read FAQ's and instructions very well.
  7. Finally in the process of dumping SB. Anyone try differenet AI sets and have an opinion on a good plan of action? I was thinking about installing IVAO until I read that the file is m[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ive. My online flying is pretty much Central, North America and the Carribean. I was thinking of buying one the payware packages, run vrmgenerator and be happy. Or should I simply stick with WoAI, dumb it down and keep it simple? Dave
  8. Running VISTA 32 and want to know if installing FSX in a directory of my choice instead of Program Files will cause a problem? I know, silly question, but my system recently crashed and I am rebuilding.
  9. Just stumbled upon this http://www.fsopen.co.uk/software/openclouds/. Looks pretty interesting for non-REX, non-ACTIVE SKY users and it is free. Anyone familiar with this product?
  10. Ross, I realize you are bizy right now with ZBW fly-in, but when you get a moment could you expound a bit further. How does one pull from the other servers? I can't get Servinfo or Vatspy to even load up.....?
  11. Nope , not here, same access violation error.
  12. Unbelievable........a p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word rant! The world has become a jungle of userids and p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]words and I doubt seriously that anyone,if they got it, would care about a VATSIM p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word! Hey Mat....did I say WELL DONE and thanks....Oh, yes I did, that was the point this thread!
  13. Well done Mr Mathew Magera! Very nicely done for the first issue! Our community is fortunate to have people like youself that dedicate precious time and effort to make Vatsim even better. Your article regarding event structure hit the nail on the head in my opinion. For those that have not signed up, I encourage you to do so via the VATUSA site.
  14. Take a look at this.... http://isgsim.com/ which is purchased through simMarket http://secure.simmarket.com/product_info.php?products_id=2174 Ernie also has a flightplanner.... http://www.fsbuild.com/ which is also purchased at simMarket http://secure.simmarket.com/product_info.php?products_id=486 Check out Ernie's forums....he is second to none in providing help...
  15. I have checked AVG website. Looks like version 8.0 has 3 options ranging from 34.99 to 54.99. The top end has Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Anti-Spam, Web Protection & Firewall. Lower end has Ani-Virus ans Anit-Spyware. Middle has lower end but includes firewall. Will I be OK with the lower end AVG and use Windows Firewall that came with Vista?
  16. I have searched thouroughly and think this is a correct statement. Please advise in laymens terms, anyone, as I have been dazed and confused. New computer with vista 32 and McAfee. I can connect okay, but have that problem that alot of Vista users have apparently...seeing no traffic. I have read that I need to uninstall McAfee totally? Is this the only solution? What to do with Windows firewall and defender....turn on/leave off??...is that as good/better than McAfee? I see alot of posts that mention other firewall/anti-virus packages that do not interfere with SB, but was wanting
  17. Will FS9 run on a windows vista system?
  18. Not very computer literate, so be gentle. Just loaded FSX, SP1. Running Vista Home Premium. Sys Specs: Intel Core2 w/Quad Core 2.66 GHZ 4 GB Ram Nvidia GeForce 9800GT Dual SLI capable All went well until after I insatalled FSX SP1. I have 2 vertical white lines running the entire length of monitor about 1/2 inch apart and about 3 inches from the left end of screen. What is really interesting is that just to the right of these lines are the the letters SLI in caps. I downloaded the most recent drivers, without any effect. I have SLI enabled. Any ideas? I re-insatlled SP1 without a
  19. Well, I am hoping the lower end of the XPS 730's will give me good performance. Seeing how many people have been dissapointed with FSX, I just want to make sure I get enough graphics power to run FSX smotth while on VASTIM. I am fortunate that my company will reimburse me $1000 as I need it to work from home.
  20. I am in the market for a new desktop and have been considering a Dell XPS 730 series. Can anyone give me some advise as to which model will run FSX online with good results. Keep in mind that I am trying to keep to a budget. Link of 730 series on their website: http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/xpsdt_730?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ref=dthp Thanks in advance! Computer Challenged Dave
  21. Great job MIAMI! Nice change from typical Conga Line FNO's and the like! PC12 N1458L
