THE LOUNGE / Re: Web Site Problems Apr - May 2023

Have sent a message to Charlie to see if he can look into it.  I believe we host on the same server as Ozark Virtual ( which I have found not to exhibit the issue.  Could be a DNS issue as I do not know who owns the domain registration.  But that does not really explain the hit and miss characteristic.

Yes, just use the digits of your PILOT ID, 2116 in your case.
Password should be the one you set to login to the main TWVA website.

OK ... since these prior posts, TWVA has shifted from the http:// type web to the https:// type web.

As such check you VA Profile setting to see if includes that and right mouse click on the program and select run as administrator  ..

Excellent work.

Took considerable amount of time to just get the engines started on this beauty, but finally got enough ground school under my belt to take the PMDG DC6 out on a revenue flight.

Still got a lot to learn.  She can be a handful if not properly trimmed and tuned.  Almost thru with the second page of notes and checklists on what makes her happy.   :D

Have been spending a lot of time in MSFS2020.  Went back and flew some XP11 ... it was a joy.  So much, that I've added XP12 to Santa's list.

Wife and I cut  our big road trip by a day.  Used the saved Motel money and pulled the trigger on the FS2020 Maddog X.  It was a good squeeze.  :D

Arrived at KATL:

This is the first, true study level aircraft I have owned.  Somewhat steep learning curve just to get the engines started and the FMC programmed.  Have also finally got the AiG beta traffic mod going.  This was like my 3rd attempt at getting it running.  It is still beta, and the injector kicks out from time to time, but it is nice to see "real" traffic in MSFS2020.

Went thru a lot of youtube tutorials to get it set up.  One that worked best for me was:

Dude, you're giving me an itchy finger to pull the credit card trigger on that puppy !   :D

Maybe in September after getting back from a 2 week road trip my wife has planned.

Holy Cockpit Batman !
You running multiple computers to handle that or all through one Video Card ?  I have been on the prowl for a RTX 2080 video card since last September.  All you can find are the scalpers charging 2x - 3x the MSRP.

Those ERJ's look super in that TWA dress !

OK, see if this will work for you.  Do you have another computer or laptop that you don't use for Flight Sim?  If so, you can install the version from the TWVA FLEET, New Arrivals Section on it.

If so, I believe it installs to C:\FS-Products folder.  Copy that folder to one of your data drives of your Flight Sim Computer (preferably not the drive with your newer version of kACars installed on it).  Then try launching the kACARS.exe from that folder (as administrator) to see if it will let you setup a VA Profile for TWA and use that launch location for the v1.0.1.1 that the TWA site requires.

I was able to do that on my non-FS computer and get it to launch and connect to the TWA site.  However, it does not have flight sim on it to test connection to the simulator.  I believe it will work, as I think kACARS looks at the registry to tell it where Flight Sim is installed.  All of its' settings regarding VA and user profiles are stored in a config file of whatever folder you are running kACARS from.

Early evening flight into KBOS.  Although the A320 I was flying in FS2020 has little resemblance to an X-Wing fighter, the only thing running thru my mind was ...
