  1. Hi All,Has VOXATC (FS9) been updated to run under Vista? I recently bought a new laptop that runs FS9 great, but unfortunately driver issues prevent me from running XP on a separate partition without overheating the GPU.As great as FS9 runs on Vista, VOXATC seems to be a no-go on this OS. Is there an update or a workaround I'm not aware of, and if not, are there still plans to make VOXATC Fs9-compatible?Thanks,Charlie
  2. I just received an e-mail from Rudolph at RGFlight, and he confirmed the FS9 version is no longer available for purchase.Too bad. Those also using FSX may want to check out the new Salzburg scenery for themselves. It looks fantastic.Cheers,Charlie
  3. I'd love to buy it, but perhaps it's been pulled from Simmarket? There's a Simmarket page for the FS9 version, but there's no "Buy Now" or "Add to Cart" button, as there are for other product pages on Simmarket. Also, when I do a search by manufacturer under "RGFlight," there are no products listed.
  4. Thanks for the replies. I'll check out the freeware.I don't see any downloads available from RGFlight at Simmarket at the moment, but I'll keep checking in.Charlie
  5. RGFlight is due to release its Salzburg 2008 scenery for FSX at any moment now. Does anyone know if there is an FS9 version in the works, or if there is a previous version of RGFlight scenery for Salzburg available somewhere for purchase?Cheers,Charlie
  6. Does anyone know if there's a workaround or an official update for VOXATC (FS9) that will work in Vista? Any help would be appreciated.Cheers,Charlie
  7. Respectfully,TrackIR does blow freelook and cam2pan away, but free track gives TrackIR a run for its money. It currently gives 4DOF in FS9 and 6DOF - with luck they'll be adding the last 2DOF in an upcoming version.Charlie
  8. Looks good Christian.Will users be able to enable/disable water mask in the ProxyUser.ini file? Water masks will be great for many, but I'm running FS9 on a low-end machine that can't display water reflections. For me, the TileProxy water looks better and it would be great to have the option to keep it.Thanks,Charlie
  9. Thanks Zane! I appreciate your clearing up the Utopia Radio mystery, and everything seems to be working fine when opening my flight plan. I've downloaded AFCAD and will crack it open tonight or tomorrow.Between VOXATC, Tileproxy, and custom models from Flight Ontario, I just can't believe how immersive FS9 has become! Thanks again,Charlie
  10. Hi All,I'm completely new to ATC phraseology and protocol, and I've recently purchased VOXATC, and I'm really enjoying it. I've also purchased Comm1 VFR Radio Simulator so I can better understand what's being said in VOXATC and why.There two simple things I'm having a tough time figuring out however, and I'd really appreciate some help.1) Utopia Radio - Before taxiing, VOXATC prompts me to contact Utopia Radio to request that they open my flight plan. Why is it called Utopia Radio? As I understand it, what I'm actually doing is contacting my area's Flight Service Station. I believe in the area where I'm flying (southern Ontario), the FSS is based in London, Ont. Is "Utopia Radio" a generic term that is used when then proper name of the FSS isn't known by VOXATC?2) Opening a flight plan/Zulu time -- As I understand it, Zulu time is five hours ahead of EST. The trouble is, with the VOXATC prompt window closed, I can never predict the corrent time to say I'm opening my flight plan. At first I thought the correct Zulu time would be my clock's time (EST) plus five hours, but the time listed in the prompt box is sometimes +5 hours and 14 minutes, or +5 and 23 minutes. Is there a simple way to determine the right time to open the flight plan without looking at the prompt box.Hope this makes sense. Many thanks,Charlie
  11. Christian,Thanks a million! It's working great now! FDSConnection.dll had been installed in the TileProxy folder. I moved it and everything's working great!In addition for coming up with TileProxy in the first place, thanks for the many hours of technical support you've given to the community.My wife and I are flying to Germany for our anniversary this August. I owe you a beer.All the best from above Niagara Falls,Charlie>It seems to have accessed/created about 30000 individual>tiles which is good.

  12. Hi Christian,First off - thanks for your hard work. I tried TileProxy in FSX and it worked great. Unfortunately my low-end system gives me too many problems in FSX, so FS9 is the only way to go for me, and I'm thrilled you're porting TileProxy over to FS9 as well.Unfortunately, it's not working for me in FS9. I've had to load in the TP World folders manually, which I think I've done correctly. The load.bat window is giving much different info now than it did in FSX. In FSX, I could see TP was contact the server, followed by the OK! message. Now, I'm seldom seeing this in FS9. Please see the attached screenshot for what I'm getting now.When the scenery finishes loading up, I'm getting a mix of what appears to be default water textures and black tiles.Any clue from the screenshot where I can start looking for a solution?Thanks Christian,Charlie
  13. Is there a mod/C-172 model that will make window reflections visible in VC mode in FS9?Thanks in advance for help.
