It seems that Vpilot is hanging or stuttering while running , but that shouldn't happen since I'm guessing that my i7 Haswell shouldn't sweat running this application....I'm running Windows 8, do I need to put it into compatibility mode?

Also, it'd telling me UDP port creation failed. What does this mean?

If the sim isn't running, then it'll pause every 10 seconds or so while it attempts to connect to the sim.

 

Regarding the UDP error, that means vPilot is trying to open the data port that's used to connect to voice servers. If it can't open the port, that means either that your anti-virus or firewall software is preventing it, or the port is already in use by another VATSIM client.

Crazy stuttering of traffic here too. I've uninstalled FSINN just to make sure they weren't screwing with each other but even after a restart the aircraft are moving at around 0.5fps. It feels like the default Squawkbox refresh rate, but I can't find a way to increase it.

 

Cheers.

Yeah, probably ... though a couple beta testers ran it networked without any problems. Could you do me a favor and try capping your framerate at 20 FPS to see if that smooths it out? 50 FPS might be causing too much SimConnect traffic over the network. (At least four SimConnect packets are sent for every aircraft for every frame FSX draws.)

Bit of a loss with this one.

 

One thing that comes to mine is that you have some background applications or services that may be running that could be interfering. Are non-essential services such as Windows Update, etc. stopped?

 

Are your running on a wired or wireless network? Any Netflix running in the household?

 

Is port forwarding on UPD port 3290 configured on your router?

Another test in case it is not a network issue.

 

Write down your flight sim display & scenery settings then lower them to the bare minimums and see if you still get stutters.

 

If you don't, then gradually increase them until you start to see stutters and then adjust accordingly.

Firstly very good job, I would ask that while during takeoff the squwak mode is done automatically in Charlie, but during landing and leaving the runway should not be done automatically stand-by?

 

Thanks

 

There is a setting to automatically squawk charlie on takeoff, but this is disabled by default. You must turn it on.

Great work with this client

 

But, on Networked i also have very big stutters on other traffic, have open all doors to client in firewall etc. etc., client works like an charm, no trouble at all, model matching....excellent

 

If i use client on sim pc, no stutter at all, smooth as silk, so no performance problem, smooth on fps looked at 30 or unlimited, no difference.

 

I wish someone could find a solution to this problem.

Yes at takeoff it worked for me,but my question was about landing and runway vacated it stays at Charlie and not returns to stand by?
