I am very new to vatsim an I am taking the ATC USA Training program right now. When ever I try to launch VRC it says:

"Could not retrieve server list from network. Using the cashed server list and user defined network." Then I click OK and at the text box it says "Error: Version check failed! HTTP error." This is also accompanied by lag.

 

I have no idea why this is happening or where to begin. I have already disabled my firewall, but that doesn't work. If anyone could help me, that would be great!

I wish that where the case, but as of right now, when I close the error message I am greeted with the red text (that I said in the original post) as well as yellow text that says "0 Servers available", or something along that lines. I am also suffering from lag. It got to 20 to 40 fps for about 3 sec, but after that, it freezes for about 5 sec and this repeats until I shut down VRC. Sorry if I'm sounding so urgent or rude, I just want to be able to become part of VATUSA. Thanks for the responses as well.

My 8086 computer from 1987 would run VRC... (just kidding, of course, but it doesn't require much!)

 

And don't try USA-C; it was decommissioned months ago....

 

Your servers.txt should have the following. If not, use a text editor and correct it manually.

The intel graphics cards are notorious for poor OpenGL support in their drivers. I have a laptop with an Intel video chip and it has a similar issue with the screen locking up for a second or so every so often. I don't know of any way to fix it other than getting an Nvidia or ATI graphics card.
