Innacurate plane path and positions, according to ATCs.

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone. I'm experiencing a major problem while flying at VATSIM.I open SBRelay 1.2, then FS2004, connect it to multiplayer, create a flight, open SBHost, then SquawkBox 2.3.But, during my flights, the ATCs complain that my path at their screens are innacurate. They ask me to turn, or change the altitude...I do it normally, but they see no movement with my plane, and then terminate the services.When I check the java "Visual Display" applet at www.vatsim.net site, I see my flight path and position there is also very innacurate . But the other planes there have accurate path lines behind them.I have Directx 9.0 here. Is this the problem? Some ATCs said it could be that. How can I solve this problem? Going back to an older DirectX version?Any help will be very valuable. Thanks a lot. ;)

Check the local settings in Windows. If you use ',' (comma) as a decimal place setting that can cause the problem; you need to change it to '.' (full stop, period).

Wow...I did what you said, and it worked, finally. What a relief. Now, the position and direction, according to the ATCs and the applet at Vatsim site are accurate.Thanks so much for the help. I appreciate it a lot. :)

Glad it worked TameWolf.BTW This and other usefull information is available in the Pilot Resource Center http://www.vatsim.net/prc/login/index.phpI would suggest anyone new to VATSIM or having problems visit the centre before posting here as most of the answers are in the Resource Centre.
