  1. When I tune frequencies I cant hear anything, the RX light does not light up. I am able to get the TX to light up, just to see if it works. The following popped up while launching vPilot. Do I need to have voices turned on in MSFS?
  2. Hello, my MSFS starts lagging after connecting to VATSIM via vPilot. This does not have anything to do with my previous post, I have solved the problem from there, which ended up not being caused by vPilot. Ive did a flight after fixing it, on the 28th Sep, and it went perfectly. The issue from that post also did not affect my FPS, just the aircraft model - Here it does affect my FPS, and by quite a bit. Here is all the Info Ive gathered about the problem at hand: The lag starts right after a vPilot connection is initiated and stops right after disconnection The problem did not occur on the 28th September, but it did on the 2nd of October, inbetween those 2 dates I have not changed anything in MSFS - Ive installed no addons, Ive changed no settings [I am pretty sure WU11 was issued in the time though, if it was we have a starting point for fixing the issue] When disabling aircraft in the setting (that is setting Maximum aircraft displayed to 0), the simulator starts stuttering a bit which did not happen [on flights] before [this one] - so I dont think the problem fully lies on aircraft rendering When aircraft are enabled in the setting (that is setting Maximum aircraft displayed to >0), the simulator starts lagging and stuttering quite a lot which also did not happen [on flights] before [this one] On both of those occasions the only major change when looking at the MSFS Dev FPS Display, outside of the FPS itself, seems to be a lot more red lines on the FPS Line Graph which Im assuming means more dropped frames The lag seems not to occur when the outside world is NOT in view - so the FPS stays normal (compared to vPilot disconnected) when the camera is fully facing a part of the aircraft cockpit (ex. Overhead Panel) The lag does not seem to be dependent on the aircraft (tested with B737, B747 and A320), even though the 737 seems to be the most affected - but that could be a cause of its FPS being lower in general in comparison to other aircraft The lag is not dependent on the airport, it is observed whether I spawn at a small, big, addon, premium or default airport I have tried emptying my Community folder to no luck I have not had any programs (outside of the ones in the background, that I also had open on every other flight session) open during the testing Nothing stands out when looking at the Task Manager - when vPilot is connected there is only a small change in the CPU Usage, there doesnt seem to be a memory leak... The CPU and GPU Usage of MSFS2020 also seem to be unaffected by it (kind of hard to tell for GPU though because it already hovers in the high 90s area), and in general the stats given in Task Manager seem to be similar for both as they were on previous flights
  3. Im having a problem with the 737 (maybe even all aircraft, not confirmed) Since SU10, I did 4 flights. 2 offline, they went perfectly, 2 on VATSIM (with vPilot) and they did not to say the least. My FPS stays the same but basically the aircraft model itself gets laggy - turning knobs is slow, all the levers and buttons are slow (in the sense that the animations are slowed down or laggy), engines are unresponsive (they do respond but very slowly), the pushback tug is slow regardless of the speed being set to high.... I had to quit both flights after pushback when I realized that its not just the buttons but rather the engines as well - I was following the same checklist for all 4 flights, so it cant be my fault. Could it be a problem with vPilot like I suspect it to be, or is it the PMDG 737, or the FS itself maybe? Does anyone else have the same problem? Its not that great that I had to cancel 2 VATSIM flights even though I put more than an hour of prep before disconnecting. Ill stop flying on VATSIM until I find a solution so that I dont waste the time of the controllers, any help is appreciated.

  7. I used to use MSFS on via the Xbox app because I had a month free with gamepass so I had MSFS for a month before I uninstalled it and bought it fully on steam. Model matching was working fine for the Xbox app version but then as soon as I go onto Vatsim via Vpilot it all just stops working. I've tried uninstalling Vpilot, re-installing it on both drives, different model matching (AIG, Model matching magic etc.) and none seem to fix the issue! This is what shows up everytime I connect: I am really struggling with this and I can't find a troubleshooting technique that works, please someone help me.
  8. just need some pointers of how to start in the simulator. first question is how to use the vPilot. and where is my airport to start. and call sign?? ok i have a lot of questions but i think this is normal 😁
  9. Hi, I am having a problem with the VatSpy application, after downloading VatSpy via the setup file, it launches perfectly, but if I close it and try to re-open it via the shortcuts literally nothing happens, but if I go to the folder where it is downloaded, and open the application it shows an error message stating: "The VAT-Spy application data folder does not exist! Please reinstall VAT-Spy", I have several times tried to re-install vat-spy but without luck. Thanks in advance.
  10. It worked perfectly two days ago but i had to install a razor update for my headset even though Vpilot can find my microphone and headset I only hear the clicks when ATC is typing too me or other pilots are typing I've tried everything at this point the microphone works for everything else i've checked my firewall etc nothing is working
  11. When I receive clearance in the UK, they just give me a SID, a squawk and sometimes the active runway, but when flying in the U.S I receive a transition level and a departure frequency. I understand the frequency and the rest of the clearance, just a bit unsure on what is meant by "[] transition." Would really appreaciate some help on this as the U.S seems like it's so fun to fly in! It always seems so busy and most airports have at least 1 Controller active which means there will never be a 'quiet' section of my flight.
  12. Im getting closer to EGCC (Manchester) which is my arrival airport, there are no centers active to provide me with a STAR, do I get my STAR off of Manchester's Approach frequency, or do I just self-assign mysekf one and announce it on Unicom? I'm relatively new and have been wanting to know an answer to this for quite a while now.
  13. Hi, I downloaded EuroScope, latest Beta version, and all the sector files. But when I open the sector file, nothing shows up. its just a black screen. can somebody help? Thanks!

  15. Hi there, I have been trying to find out all day as to why my VATSIM account was suspended. Yesterday, due to some personal thinks happening at home I had to disconnect from Vatsim just after my landing at EDMM, If this could be the reason I would like to hear but I have no way of finding out Since I can't log into my account nor have I gotten an E-Mail explaining why I got banned. My id is :1540054 and if anyone could help me I would really appreciate that. Thanks!
  16. So i wanted to join the VATSIM Discord Server and sadly didnt really check my discord settings and picked an account with the same discord username, that is not mine. the wrong Account is "Jack LP#3056". Is there any way to kick him? I tried to get in contact with him but he would have to add me as a friend first. Thanks if you can help me.
  17. So I just did my first flight (LEMD - EGLL) and found out my profile still shows 0 hours as pilot. Is that ok? I also saw during flight the live map showed me as Unknown pilot. I don't know if I missed something. Thanks in advance
  18. Hello. I‘m pretty new to vatsim, and have a question. Max favourite Airport is Weeze Niederrhein, ICAO Is EDLV. For sadness, there Is no atc for this Airport, probably cause it’s really small. What should i do When i‘m flying with IFR? Are there and frequencies i can contact? THX in advance.
  19. I'm flying the Miami Vice event tomorrow, I need this working. Today, I rolled back to an earlier version of xPilot (1.1.15 or something) because apparently it doesn't disconnect you when FPS gets bad. Doesn't matter why, but I did. It's no longer working. I updated to the new version, same results. I can hear and talk to ATC. I can see labels of other aircraft. I can NOT see other aircraft. I can NOT tick the box on the xplane built in map that says 'xpilot', the box isn't there. Yes, I have CSL. Yes, it's loaded. Please, help, quickly.
  20. Okay so I am a staff at VATSIM Saudi Arabia, or vACCSA in the Middle East and Africa region. I have been noticing lately as the number of members increase with an increase in ATC training request and Pilot activity in our vACC, that most of these individuals come from a VA (Virtual Airlines), a local one. The problem is, they join the VA and the vACC knowing that all these services such as Pilot and ATC training, member support, and events hosted by the vACC all to be a part of this VA in subject and not the vACC. Basically they have no idea what vACC is or what vACCSA is. So, I want to change that, I want to invite the whole VA for a discord meeting and would like to explain the difference between VA and vACC. But I just cant figure out how to start it off, the correct way to differentiate between them. This might be very silly, but a few point would help a lot. Thanks .
  21. Hello all, I am new to VATSIM and have downloaded vPILOT for FSX Steam Edition, i am able to connect to the network and connect to the ATC and hear the ATC correspondence, however I am not able to see other online traffic, they all appear as default A321s in blank livery. I am also seeing the default FSX aircraft in the default liveries (Orbit, pacifica etc). Is there a way that i can disable this so i can see the other VATSIM users correctly? Thank you
