Yeah, it's really good. They finally god rid of those skanky CSL aircraft and give at least semi-descent representations of aircraft types and liveries. Connecting up is all done within FS9, as opposed to having to run sbrelay, avc, sbhost and sb all separately then having to sync them all up together. The only thing I miss from the old setup is having to tune radios properly (yes, I know this is what one has to do IRL, but IRL one has a copilot who does these thing for you ;-) ) in lieu of just clicking on the next controller in SB. Am I missing something?There were heaps of people on VATSIM today and the poor controllers were real busy handling all the SB3 test drivers. This is a great advance for online live ATC / Flight simulation.Gary

Hello,the radio box in MSFS can be removed by uncecking "Flightsim Transponder" in the Squawkbox Menu, "Transponder" Submenu. SB3 will remember the state of that box for future flights.Yours,Martin Georg/EDDFVATSIM Europe Division Director *** mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org://online.vatsim.../811874/957.png

Monsoon, to minimize the text box double-click on the title bar. As for the radio box I couldn't get rid of it either so I just move it to my second monitor. Those with a single just move it to a spot you really don't need.As for stutters, I flew tonight and it was pretty smooth for me even with ActiveSky, and FSAcars and using the PMDG 700.

Sounds like you are using a backup FS installation. Just rename your FS9 directory to something else, install FS9 into its default directory, then copy your backup installation over the top of it. SB3 should recognise your FS installation now.Gary

Yes its very nice indeed. A few thing that would be nice. I cant get that darn radio box to disappear. The text box won't either. The multiplayer smoothness is a way better but still some stutters to it. I don't know why but the IVAP program seems to be smoother. doesn't seems to be any stutters on it whatsoever. dunno though.
