  1. jordanal i only see two key requests from you, they were on 10/12 Success @ 10/12/2014 1:58:01 PM (1579390457) ADFGNNDLGJCJCHEHHLCCLPLAMGKNNLHP Success @ 10/12/2014 1:58:01 PM (1579390457) ADFGNNDLGJCJCHEHHLCCLPLAMGKNNLHP i just checked my email, junk mail, key requests and support emails - i don't see anything from you. i'm assuming you are al jordan. if you are not al jordan, know your name would help immensely. i would love to know why your emails aren't reaching me. jd with a handle like razzor - it's hard to find people in my contacts. nothing with razzor in it. i just went through all my emails, junk emails, key requests, and support requests. i have answered every thing i've received. send me an email at j.d.e.k.k.e.r@b.e.l.l.s.o.u.t.h.n.e.t (without the periods) so we can find who you are and what i can do for you. jd
  2. looking through all email i've received, in the last 6 months, i have 2 emails from you. one on 8/7 for a key request, and a key was sent on 8/7 to you Success @ 8/7/2014 10:28:12 AM (-592236214) CAFEMDKBLFNOJHNGELMKDDHDGHLNIDFB then on 8/8 you sent me an email saying someone on the forum suggested you contact me, and i responded on the 9th with: Your key is CAFEMDKBLFNOJHNGELMKDDHDGHLNIDFB And a key was sent out earlier Success @ 8/7/2014 10:28:12 AM (-592236214) CAFEMDKBLFNOJHNGELMKDDHDGHLNIDFB and then i get an email from ray saying you are unhappy. from this end, it appears the key generator and i have responded to every email you've sent to me. you might want to check your junk mail folder, that's where a lot of legitimate emails go on hotmail. jd
  3. well. i'm sorry you are having such a hard time getting a hold of me. send me an email with the subject line "tight git is unhappy" that way i can find your email address, and then look for all these emails you've sent me, so i can figure out what happened. thanks jd
  4. IF you need a key, follow these steps: SUBJECT: Line - RCv4 Key Request TO; line - register@jdtllc.com FIRST line in the body of the email Product id, including any minus sign an ! character Your first name, in case i have to look you up manually an ! character Your last name, in case i have to look you up manually Press the send email button, don’t leave it in your drafts folder. you would not believe how many key requests never reach me for this simple reason. The key generator doesn’t need to know why you are requesting a key The key generator doesn’t need to know about your new computer The key generator doesn’t need to know your age. The key generator is a computer program, that is looking for very specific information in a very specific format. get it right, the key will follow quickly. just the product id, your name, separated by exclamation points, addressed to register@jdtllc.com, from the email address you entered at the time of purchase, with a subject line of RCv4 Key Request Simple. IF your key isn’t working: Remember to run RC as admin. Remember to copy and paste the product id exactly (including the negative sign if there is one). if the product id is wrong, or missing a minus sign, just resubmit the key request, following the steps above. Remember to copy and paste the key from the registration email. Remember to get rid of any extra spaces at the beginning or end of the key. IF none of these tips help, contact jd@jdtllc.com, and send a screenshot of the registration screen, with the product id and the key pasted into the key field, all clearly visible. This would be a good time to check that the product id you are requesting a key for is the same as in the registration screen. IF you didn't receive your key: Make sure you are using the same email address that you entered at the time of purchase. Check your junk mail folder, your spam filters, your weird spam apps that require me to enter CATCHA phrases (turn it off) if you changed your email address, contact jd@jdtllc.com If you have requested more than 20 keys in the last year, your keys will be manually released, to thwart thieves from buying one copy, and selling it to all their fellow thieves. If you haven’t purchase Radar Contact, you won’t get a key, no matter how hard you try. IF you need to re-download, contact jd@jdtllc.com IF you aren’t getting a reply to your emails, remember, if i don’t respond to the first email in 24 hours, i probably won’t reply to the second email you sent 60 seconds after the first. Also keep in mind, $h!t happens. Like today, tornado warnings, high winds, power outages, limbs falling on my house, DSL outages all within 6 hours. i’m not ignoring you. i may not be able to receive your emails, or i may not be able to send emails. you can also contact doug@jdtllc.com, nothing happens to him. IF you have a technical problem, that isn’t being solved by the experts here on the forum, contact jd@jdtllc.com or doug@jdtllc.com IF you entered one email address at time of purchase, but using a different email address for key requests, contact jd@jdtllc.com IF you are getting an error 75, run RC as admin. also make sure your antivirus program knows that rcv4.exe is a safe program. IF you are getting an error 76, check your flight plan and remove any non alpha/numeric characters from the gates (those would be ?, /, @, $, etc) IF you are getting an error 9, make sure you have clicked the “rebuild rc scenery database” after every new scenery is added. IF you are never getting switched to approach, make sure you understand the difference between FL and Feet. Also, don't enter an altitude deviation of 10000 feet. IF you are being turned around 180 degrees, you missed a checkpoint. make sure you pass within 2 miles of each checkpoint. also, don’t put in a heading deviation of 90 degrees IF you keep getting told you are off course, remember your fancy FMC is not in charge. if ATC says to fly heading 120, he doesn’t care if the FMC wants you on a heading of 100. Do what the controller says. Also, the controller can't see the pretty pink line on the FMC, even if he could, he wouldn't care. You are not on course by being on that pink line. You are on course if you are flying the heading you were told to. IF the menus are sluggish or take a long time to display, turn off the display text option in the RC options IF the keys for the RC menus aren’t working, remember that FS has to be ready to fly, not on a menu, or pick a flight plan, or pick a plane, but running, sitting at the gate at the departure airport BEFORE you press the start rc button. IF this is all too complicated, contact jd@jdtllc.com IF you are unhappy, contact jd@jdtllc.com IF none of this helps, contact jd@jdtllc.com IF all else fails, contact doug@jdtllc.com - he can fix anything.
  5. looks like you got 3 keys at the start of july Success @ 7/1/2014 12:13:08 PM (1010972120) HJDOLABGLQKMOIONILGHKJIPAQFHDDGC Success @ 7/1/2014 6:13:15 AM (1010972120) HJDOLABGLQKMOIONILGHKJIPAQFHDDGC Success @ 6/30/2014 11:12:59 AM (1010972120) HJDOLABGLQKMOIONILGHKJIPAQFHDDGC once you used the right email address (the one you entered at the time of purchase), and properly formatted.
  6. well pat, every key request i've received has been processed. In the future, for faster key generation, send an email with the following characteristics, and you will receive your key within 15 minutes: Send the request to register@jdtllc.com The subject line should be RCv4 Key Request The body of the email should contain: nnnnnnnnn ! Firstname ! Lastname Where nnnnnnnnn is the product id on the registration screen If you are using vista or windows 7, start RC by right mouse clicking the .exe or shortcut, and clicking run as administrator

    rickman34 - wish i knew your name, or your email address, or something i could look up. but i can't even send you an email. and i dare not put my real email address on the web, to be harvested and spammed to death.... so reply to this post, with a number, i will put the first names of each virginmedia user. at that point, i'll send you an email. or BETTER YET! post the email, you sent to register@jdtllc.com, with your product id, skip the name if you want. i'll generate a key, and we'll figure out the virginmedia thing out on monday here we go: N H John C John E Tim Josh Richard A H Paul H Adrian Dominic Raymond Clive Paul S Andrew Patrick

    Key Request - Failure

    i can assure you, the email address exists, since keys are going out regulary. send me an email with the info, to jd@jdtllc.com
  9. as a clarification, the recording utility isn't ready for general usage, so i would suggest, if you really really really want to record 1500+ wav files, you listen to a wav, record the wav with the same name, saying the same thing. then you have to trim the front and back, then you will have to equalize all the wav files. i wouldn't recommend it, it's a daunting tasks.

    Key Request problems

    eric, there is no need to go through intermediaries. i saw 4 key requests, 3 from the wrong email address. one was from the right email address, and a key was sent. if you are having troubles, send me an email. jd@jdtllc.com - and I can help you.
  11. changing call signs would be a monumental task, involving the re-engagement of dozens of people to record new call signs. after that, there are hours of audio work, that at this point only person on the team can do. so i don't think it is practical at this time. if the callsigns you are seeking can be "made" by rearranging existing call signs, then any audio editing tool can be used for that. but you would have to do that for every pilot, every controller, and every chatter controller. if you can get the new files made, i can walk you through how to change the \data file where the callsigns are maintained. jd
  12. are you running a non english version of windows. rc does not run on DBCS languages, such as chinese, japanese, korean, etc. jd

    Key Request problems

    send an email to jd@jdtllc.com, and i can help you. i don't know where your emails went, but it doesn't look like i received them. there is a pinned topic on the proper format for your key request. if you use that, humans aren't involved in the process if your email address has changed, i will have to make the change myself jd

  15. Four years ago this month, my life changed, in ways I still find hard to put into words. For most of the last 20 years my wife has suffered a debilitating disease which robbed me of the woman I married 30 years ago and the mother of our wonderful daughter. During those 2 decades, I spent the day taking care of my wife, and raising my daughter, and working at BellSouth. In the other hours, I teamed up with my partner Doug, and a handful of dedicated beta testers, and managed to create something special, Radar Contact. In many respects, I think RC kept me sane and focused on the things that were important. During those years, through sheer determination and perseverance, helped by science, technology, pharmaceuticals, and a pair of wonderful doctors - my wife emerged from those decades of fog. Once again I saw glint her in her eye, I heard the laugh that I had longed to hear, and I was reunited with my wife, my partner, my soul mate. At the same time, my daughter had taken a giant leap. She was no longer the rambunctious little kid, but was now a mature young woman preparing to go off to college. While these events were going on in my personal life, I turned my attention to Radar Contact on numerous occasions. Each time, I found myself seduced by the people, the emotions, the companionship, the adventures that I had missed for so long. I know this will be a great disappointment to many of you, and I share your disappointment. I’m blessed by the countless friendships that would have never been possible without Radar Contact. I know many users that have gone on to become licensed pilots, some who have their commercial licenses. I think sometimes, in some small way, maybe RC helped them to achieve what I only dreamed of. I will never be able to express my gratitude and appreciation to all of you. There is one thing I've learned over the last 20 years, never say never. My life is proof that things change when you least expect them, and it would be silly to say there will never be a version 5. But for the near term, I'm selfishly going to do the things that bring me joy, and make me laugh, and make me smile, and make me feel good all over. I'm going to live life to the fullest, with my wife, my daughter, my family. ​ So I hope in the end, you will not be disappointed, but you will be happy. Happy for me, my wife and my daughter. I hope you can agree, that putting Version 5 on the shelf for now, is the right decision at this time, and it’s for the right reasons. Remember, never say never. If you are interested in photography like I am, you can see what's new at my gplus page. JD I’m where John is. The only difference being I got there more quickly. JDTLLC was born in 1997 and went to work on RCv1. John, myself and our beta testers stayed full bore through RCv3. By the end of v3 I was feeling the unhealthy affects of the 14-18hr/day ATC life I was leading. Off we went into today’s RCv4. By that end, everything around me and about me was suffering, including my mental state. And this is where my guilt begins… John and the beta testers began RCv5 development; I could not participate. I regret this deeply still, but that temporary sabbatical has changed my life for the better and forever. It was necessary for sanity. And that’s my sincere hope for John. I’m thrilled for him that his wife is back and his daughter has become a strong woman. Many prayers have been answered. For my dearest friend John and his family, this has been long overdue! I’ve watched this brilliant man go through very tough times in his personal life. I’ll never forget John’s commitment to his family and dedication to JDTLLC, even in the worst of times. And John had some ‘worst of times’. I love John Dekker. He deserves the best and if his life has changed where he’s smiling and excited about his tomorrows… I support him in whatever he needs. Never say never. JDTLLC is not going out of business. Doug And to answer some of the questions that I’m sure will come up: We will continue to generate keys, preferably by the automated key generator and email, but we will continue to do them manually for those who forget how We will continue to support RC in the same way we have supported it from day 1, we will answer any and all questions, we will refer users to the download links, and updated versions of FSUIPC and makerwys.exe, and when necessary, analyze logs and other information to determine the issue that the user is having The only thing that has changed, is that version 5 is on the shelve. If and when work is ever started on it again, we will let you know. We are taking this step for all the right reasons, because our lives have changed in positive and loving ways. There is nothing negative that should be read into this. jd
