#523914 One of the ones I really need to figure out is Fess_ter_geek. He's a fellow vintage aircraft enthusiast so I found myself a kindred spirit with him the one time I caught him on. I haven't managed to see him operating live since just that one time -- so I'm trying to go through his archive videos so I can catch a moment him talking to VATSIM ATC and hunt him down via his callsign at the time. No luck just yet, however. If anyone knows who he is, help is appreciated. :-)

EDIT: man, I feel kinda stalker-y about that, having re-read it just now :)

Haha. You're also one of the very very few I've met in person :-)

Now I just feel hurt :P

LOL. Well, don't. Truth be told, I actually have a separate VATSpy filter for people that I've met in person, and you are on it. I wasn't going to admit publicly that I'm that nerdy, but, I couldn't have you feeling all dissed, LOL! :-)

#523937 Careful, he also has a filter for people that go directly to the police department, FBI and CIA for further investigation. I note that he hasn't discussed your appearance on those, but from my intel, they are largely coincidental.... ;)

#523965 Sorry, a technical question.

I found only on "filter" entry in the xml file. I copied and pasted your code and then opened Vatspy. Not sure what I am looking for, is the information in the "Filters" tab just listing who is online or do we see something on the map ?

Hi Mark -- I'll answer in more detail when I get home this evening, but, in the .xml there should be a set of tags called "Filters" (PLURAL) and this code with the SINGULAR "Filter" tags should go BETWEEN them.

Then when you open VATSpy at the top there's a little funnel icon and a drop-down box next to it. There should now be an option in that drop-down called "Twitch Streamers." Selecting that will take you to a page listing the controllers and pilots currently online who match that criteria, and then if you switch back to the "Map" tab they should be highlighted in some fashion. Under "Settings" there are options for configuring how the highlighted data tags (for the pilots) appear -- no highlight occurs for matching controllers, but you can go to that list page to see if any controllers are online who appear on that list. I'll post screenshots for you about 12 hours from now, unless someone beats me to it!

Also -- I'll update the list with the new ones I've found since then as well as all the ones that have been posted here!

#523968 Mark -- I see it now. My bad! At first, there is only one tag as it looks like this
Code: Select all<Filters />


Split that into these
Code: Select all<Filters>

</Filters>


And THEN paste that list into the middle.

Here's a step-by-step, starting with going under Windows Explorer then "Organize" and "Folder and Search Options" to change hidden files/folders to view-able :
