Well I decided to post here so I wont get chewed out on the forums there. I dont think it was a good idea to sign up at 1:00 in the morning. I just joined and made an account with vatsim and read all of the things they told me to and I think it went in one ear and out the other. I am having a hard time remember it. They give us ip's and I know that in fs2004 you go in and enter the ip in. WHen you join what do you put as a name? Your full name or your id or what? On their servers I saw like 3 usa servers up and their locations. IS that where you can spawn at and only get those atc services there or what? Also I read that some are voice servers what is that? I am not used to playing on fs2004 multiplayer just fsx and I know that you hit like cntrl to talk is it the same way in fs2004? I think those questions will cover it if I have any more I will be sure to ask you guys. Sorry if these are some newbie questions I am asking you gents.

ok find your ID in your mail box for hotmail or aol etc... then find your ID write it down along with your password and remember to LABEL them! now go and start up fs and run the software you downloaded (i personally use squawkbox because its easier to use) and do fill out the forum for the IP address etc and then start flying.

Ok so I enter in the ip address in multiplayer area and put in my Full name under the name I want them to see in multiplayer or my id?

I enetered the ip address I found online in the multiplayer but nothing showed up. Are those ip's for fsx or something?
