Any solution for that?

There's an inexpensive payware add-on called SoundStream. I have it; I found it easy to install & works as advertised. No free solution that I'm aware of.

So everybody needs SoundStream to run vPilot? or just us with this problem?

In case it's not clear, this is not an issue specific to vPilot. FSX mutes itself whenever you click on any window that's not part of FSX. For example, same thing happens with your web browser.

FSX always mutes when switching windows -- not just to vPilot, but to anything else (ASN, Chrome, etcetera). It doesn't hurt anything. You can fly just fine with the sound muted, and when you switch back to FSX the sound comes back.

If that bothers you, get SoundStream. If not, don't worry about it. ;-)

#520680 Thank you all for the answers :D .
I did a flight today & even flew almost whole flight in full-screen mode after filling my FP.

Ross Carlson 887155 wrote:Martin, I'm curious, how did you get around your full screen issue and be able to use vPilot?

Please see above. I was able to fly the whole flight in full-screen mode with vPilot GUI hidden.
So I couldn't see all the freq. etc, but it's good enough.
Thank you!

#520681 Note that there are options to have vPilot sent private messages and radio messages directed to your callsign to the FSX window. So that can be helpful when flying in full screen.

Important note: Soundstream (unless there's been an update recently) only works with the Boxed version of FSX. It does not work with FSX-SE!

Very interesting, that would be great! Can you point me to any info describing how to do that?
Thank you!
