  1. Hi all, I have developed a VS radio toolbar app for FS 2020. It uses the various VATSIM feeds to present the nearby controllers, maps, distance and range info. It also allows you to set your Comm radios to the correct frequencies. I am going to need a few testers in the coming weeks , if you are interested let me know by return. Here is a short promo video , comments welcome.
  2. I have noticed that when I connect to Vpilot fps goes from 55 to 35, gpu from 99% to 70%. Sometimes when I am flying as soon as Vpilot catches atc coverage gpu can drop from 60% to 30% usage, thus making it unplayable. I use MSI afterburner to monitor the performance and clearly something is off. At first I thought it was a MSFS update , but after flying around 40 hours without Vpilot without having any performance issues, I am now certain it's Vpilot causing it.
  3. A small tour around ROKR (Kerama) to check on the water masks of MSFS.
  4. Hey guys, Is there a way to cancel a direct to a waypoint via the mcdu in the Airbus A320? My sim is MSFS2020. Thanks in advance
  5. So idk if this has been discussed but as seen in the screenshot after downloading vPilot the Rescan Button for Modell Matching is greyed out and on the initial download it did not detect any models. I installed vPilot on my C: Drive and MSFS2020 is on another one. Might this cause th problem or is it not important where the Simulator an vPilot are installed. I tried reinstalling, installing on another harddrive aswell as running it as an admin but it doesnt change anything at all. So maybe someone might have an idea of what might cause thias problem.
  6. When using FS2020 I want to disable the built in ATC so that I can use the COM1 Radio to talk to VATSIM ATC or UNICOM. How do I do this? The only option I can find is to delegate the built in ATC to the Co-Pilot AI. This still interferes with COM1. Please advise.
  7. I have the latest version of vPilot - currently 2.6.5. I've got the new Microsoft Flight Simulator and the FS always crashes, while I'm selecting an approach. When I use the Microsoft FS multiplayer and I'm selecting an approach, everything works properly.
  8. Does anyone have any info on model matching for VATSIM for MSFS2020. Have tried searching online but haven’t had luck finding info! Apologies if this has already been addressed elsewhere! Tia champions! 🤙🏽
  9. Hello, everytime i try to start vPilot, it won't connect with MSFS2020. I am using FSUIPC and SPAD.next, therfore simconnect should not be a issue. (See attachment) I tried: - To read the FAQ - With both vPilot version 2.6.5 and 2.6.6. - Reinstalling with and without admin mode - Started both simulator and vPilot with and without admin mode. What i think could be the reason: - Installed MSFS2020 on a seperate SSD - Ran vPilot previously on a network with P3D Anyone who might have a idea?
  10. I loaded Microsoft flight sim, and pressed connect in vpilot (I have set everything up prior to pressing connect), I connected to the network and then it claimed i have an invalid CID or Password. I reset my password once, and hand typed both the old and new one multiple times along with copy + paste. I also re-installed and checked for updates. I get these messages: [17:19:30] Connecting to network... [17:19:30] Connected to network. [17:19:30] Network error: Invalid CID/password [17:19:30] Connected to voice server. [17:19:31] Disconnected from network. [17:19:32] Disconnected from voice server. I have no idea why this is happening as I am almost certain my password and CID are correct.

  12. I don't have a incredibly expensive or high spec gaming rig, but most certainly well enough to play MSFS 2020 with. After practicing offline for a good while, I decided to launch vPilot and get some real world experience, as things outside the cockpit looked like the real world. At times the sim wouldn't even load, and I got a CTD (Crash To Desktop). Sometimes this would also happen during flight, and of course preferably after a few hours and with the runway in sight. Knowing the fact flying for a while which end in a CTD does not get logged in your flight logbook, I started reading stuff, and I found a LOT... Scenery is of course very heavy on the graphics card, and unless you have one that has well above 4 Gb of vRAM you're screwed. I decided I could do 2 things. Get mad, or solve it. Solving is what I chose... Here goes!!! Turn down the TREES in all scenery down to LOW. They are immensely hard on the graphics card. For some reason, that is the magic thing to start with. All the rest can remain on medium or even medium high or high, as you wish. Increase your "Rolling Cache" up from 8Mb to what ever you can spare. Mine is now set at 110 Gb but 50 Gb seems to be enough. What this does is cache the areas you have visited instead of loading it from elsewhere. You'll have less CPU and GPU loading time. The game loads faster and smoother. What ever you do, do NOT let vPilot through your firewall by letting it connect unchecked, because you won't be able to hear nor speak ever again, it'll revert you to 'text only'. Also, do not port-forward vPilot because that has the exact same result. If you increase vRAM (virtual memory for the graphics card) in your BIOS, do not exceed 64 Mb. You'll confuse your computer if you do, causing even more crashes. Installing MSFS 2020 on a different drive than your C:\ is very possible. Just make sure you also have your vPilot and Rolling Cache there. If you choose to install it anywhere else than C:\ and not change the (install) paths of Rolling Cache or vPilot, you'll create extra stress on your system, causing it to crash. Before I changed this, I even saw explorer.exe crash on my other screen while in flight. It's horrifying... Rumors are you need well over 16 Gb of RAM, but you don't. I have 16 Gb RAM, and ever since I moved all paths to the same HDD, MSFS 2020 runs incredibly smooth. Rumors are you need a graphics card with well over 4 Gb of RAM, but you don't. I have only 2 Gb and having the time of my life. When all that is set up properly and the game runs smooth, load up a flight (at parking of course), load your flight plan and connect. I have vPilot, the MSFS map and VATSPY on my second screen and MSFS 2020 on my primary screen. After doing the above 7 points, I was FINALLY able to perform a 4,5 hour flight without crashes or disruptions. Yes, I was also able to land it! Hope this helps at least a few others that run into CTD's. Nobody likes to play offline alone. #teamVATSIM
