VATSIM- Vpilot - MSFS2020: Configuration

Post by UAL277 Tim Haibach » September 9th, 2020, 11:57 pm

Has anyone been flying on VATSIM with MSFS2020?

What I have found that after downloading and installing Vpilot, you need to configure a few tabs prior to connecting. Next in FS2020, you need to select "GROUP ONLY" from the Multiplayer Type in the Main Menu when selecting a departure location. This will allow you to see other aircraft in VATSIM, but currently as far as I know, no data tags are displayed. I did some experimenting at KLAX tonight. Some of the default model matching has some bright colors, wow. Anyway, if anyone knows anything about getting the data tags to show on other users who are connected to VATSIM, post it here as a reply so we can all be in the loop. Thanks.

Not sure if this helps but I've seen a few vPilot upgrades this week. As I write this - 9/13 - the latest version appears to be 2.6.7.

I did not change any settings in vpilot. All I did was download the liveries from FLAI and I see everybody perfectly fine.

I've never seen this, Ron. My suggestion would be to uninstall the app, manually remove any folders related to the app, reboot the machine and reinstall the latest available version of the app. Don't install to one of the default Program folders. When I install software, I usually delete the "Programs" in the default install folder. For example, if the default installation folder was C:\Program Files\vPilot I would install in C:\vPilot.

Let us know if you get this working OK, and what you did to rectify the situation; it may be of help to other pilots.

Cheers.
