No chat message from other pilots have same bearing/distance

Postby Jeorje » Sun Aug 21, 2016 5:48 pm

I cannot see or receive chat messages fro other pilots and all of them look with same bearing and same distance/locations. This problem was not there before. I am using my favourite flightgear 2.6

I'm not the expert to answer your question, but Flightgear introduced a new multiplayer protocol and later clients (2017+) are offered the choice to be "visible to all" or "visible to 2017+". If I understand it correctly, each type does chat differently and are incompatible to each other (regardless of visibility), although OpenRadar can see and reply to both styles.

Perhaps this is your problem?

That's unlikely to be the problem as the original message was posted in 2016 - which is considerably before the new protocol.

Wups, my bad. I wasn't looking at dates at all and mistook it for a new issue, especially since it was unanswered on the board.
