I'm having a terrible time connecting to multiplayer sessions with Vatsim.
My steps are:
--Start SB Relay.
--Launch Flight Simulator
--Open Multiplayer Session
--Type “127.0.0.1” in the IP box and hit search
--Click SB Relay session and hit Join…
--click Modules -> FSHost -> Run
--Click Internet TCP/IP connection.
--Select “Start Search”
Type “127.0.0.1” and hit OK…
--Click it and hit Join..
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>then I get an error box that says cannot open file "icao.dat"<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Squawkbox DOES open at that point, but I don't get the "black area" to right-click on . .. ????????
but then I get the account information, etc. that comes up
I seem to be able to join, I go to an area where I have found a flight in progress in servinfo program and go to the general location of a destination airport of someone's flight, but nothing
I seem to be in a session, but no go. No aircraft appear, and it doesn't seem that I am in any kind of session. I have dynamic scenery on very dense, etc etc etc
I've searched the FAQ, but there does not seem to be any information on the exact set and sequence of problems.
Can someone please kindly help? I'm really frustrated since I have spent so much time invested trying to go Multiplayer...
(and my wife sits by watching me, so you can probably imagine. Even in FS2004 9.1 I'm experiencing flak. Ha Ha . . .)
PLEASE HELP . . .
Thanks in advence,
