Flights No Longer Have Live Tracking, Only Appear After Submission

Post by SVAG1078 » May 20th, 2017, 12:45 am

As the title above explains briefly, I recently started having an issue with VAFS whereby my flights do not show up anywhere in VAFS in any flight list, effectively meaning there is no live tracking. The flight only shows up once it's completed. This issue seemed to start after I had my sim crash a few times (and had to cancel a few flights) last month. This appears to be the same issue as the ones described here:

Have tried reinstalling both VAFS and FSUIPC to no avail. Have now ALSO tried running VAFS via WideFS on a second client. The program used to work fine prior and there are no recent hardware of software changes. This is getting very frustrating. Can someone help please?

Are you flying a NEW PMDG or MAJESTIC aircraft?

I am flying the PMDG Queen of The Skies II, but I doubt it's a problem with the aircraft as I've flown it many times in the past and the flights were tracked just fine. Additionally, many of my VA's pilots fly the PMDG 777 and 737 and they have no issues with tracking either.

Hi Bud...


Remove this line from the aircraft config ....PMDG House (N744RB | 2017) make sure you do this for all the variants... ;)

G'day Pete thank you for your suggestion. Sorry it took this long to reply as real world has meant I didn't have time to fly.

Anyway, I tried out your suggestion and am a bit confused. Initially I took your suggestion as removing the "title" line from all livery entries in aircraft.cfg. However, doing this causes my saved flights to not load properly (P3D will only start in something called visualization mode). Restoring the titles fixes this but of course, my flights are still not tracked.

Can you elaborate on your fix please or does Sven have any comment on this issue? His replies to all previous pilots having this issue was "not enough information" but I believe there is more than enough information and attempted solutions here on my part.

Hi Bud
Save the original config for back up till you get it right..before changes..
You have to do this on all PMDG 747 Variants...
this Line PMDG House (N744GF | 2017) has to be removed from the PMDG config in sim objects, this is what you have to remove and then save file..

Before you changed the line will look like this , title=PMDG 747-400F PMDG House (N744RF | 2017)
after the change it should look like this , title=PMDG 747-400F PMDG.....


Regards Pete.... :)

Thanks Pete,

My computer was down the last 2 weeks, and I was not able to respond properly. The pipe (|) is what is messing things up, I assume?

Thanks for the insight to VAFS and the Community!
Regards,
