As a person with an agenda for FGFS that needs to be tracked I'll tell you this...the only server being tracked for the last few weeks has been MP05. I have accumulated *DAYS* of flight time on MP04 and MP08 and I have tested virtually all the MP servers and the only one that has tracked me on a single flight over the last few weeks/months has been MP05. :shock: :oops: :( :evil:

They haven't really been tracked for weeks/months with the exception of MP05. If you are not flying on MP05 your flights are not being tracked.

On which server? MP05 seems to track pretty well...none of the others that I have flown on the last few weeks has tracked a single flight. I'd stay on MP05 except that when I do, and I encounter anyone on a different server over MP, the other aircraft surges and lags back and forth. If I am on MP05 my flights are tracked but all the other aircraft I see (unless they are also on MP05) are surging and lagging forward and back as I try and video them.

If I am on MP04 or MP08 the other aircraft are smooth and natural but the flights aren't tracked..so, there has been no way to fly with other MP pilots, have the flight tracked, *and* get decent video for weeks now. Very frustrating.

I was having problems with the tracker a long time ago. (~2 weeks ago maybe?) I use mpserver07. I hope this gets fixed some time soon! :(

Hmm,

I always use server 05... and it hasn't been tracking ever since 9/22.

:(

I had some pretty nice flights in between
:cry:

oh well
Try flying on the East Coast of the United States more often. There are many improved airports that people scarcely use. You might find me somewhere near JFK (or BWI, IAD, ATL, RIC, BOS...)

Fly safe.

Okay, let's get things straight. Is it just mpserver05, or the tracker itself? If ANY of the servers are being tracked, then we know the tracker is working, and someone simply needs to contact the server maintainer, and ask him to reset or restart it or whatever.

I think it'd help if the tracker's page had a "Latest Flights" section, and perhaps it could log what server a flight was tracked on too.

It's been awhile since I did tests on each server, but for mpserver08, mpserver05, and mpserver12 (which are the ones I use regularly), the tracker hasn't worked at all since Sept. 18th. Last time I contacted a server maintainer I was told I was wasting his precious time, so I don't was MY time doing that anymore.
