Support for VAM 2.4 - 2.6 / Re: Pagination number of entries per page

Look in folder \vamcore\app\Controller for the Gvauserscontroller.php file.  For me, the change is on line 19:

          'limit' => 50,

Increase that value and it should increase the result list.  Keep in mind that if you up that too high, performance will degrade.

My guess would be some are active and some are inactive?  Do you know how to run SQL queries?  If so, run "SELECT * FROM GVAUSERS;" (without the quotes) and see how many you see in there and what their status is.

Sad to see VAM go down the drain.

I couldn't agree more.  The sad reality though is that VAM and SIM ACARS are Alejandro's creations and he is free to do with them as he pleases, which includes abandoning them, which is apparently what he's decided to do.  The ball is in his court now -- several of us on here have offered to carry the torch forward, but he seems unwilling to hand over the reigns.  As someone who has developed applications of his own, I can understand that, but it's still a shame to see this die out.

I fully expect one day to try and reach this forum only to discover it has been deleted and that will be a sad day indeed.

The future of flight simulation looks bright though, so I'm sure in no time, we'll have other options for building VAs.  All we can do is thank Alejandro for his years of work on this and wish him well in the future.  As the saying goes, onwards and upwards.

I'm not 100% sure but I believe that is hardcoded in the exe, so I don't believe it's possible to change that value.

Okay, good to know about the stutter, but would you mind testing the lights when you get a chance?  It's a crucial piece of information -- if it isn't detecting the taxi light being turned on in FS2020, it means mapping for that light would need to be added to SIM ACARS.

That screen shows your landing speed as 71 knots and you were flying an A320?  So you stalled on landing then or is that speed incorrect?

Also, the word TAXI is red.  Was it green at any point (meaning did it properly detect you turning the taxi light on and off)?

I don't use Twitter myself, do you?  Has anyone tried to contact him on his @pilotovirtual Twitter account?  I just checked and he was active on there even just hours ago and he was talking about FS 2020.

I will sign up to Twitter if I have to, but if someone on here tweets regularly, please contact him at that account and ask him to log onto the forum and join us in this discussion.

Payware planes may not work 100% correctly though plus there are some current planes with FSX/P3D like the Majestic Q400 for example that doesn't recognize everything properly, so would still be nice to have someone developing an updated SIM ACARS.

Okay, that's good news, but which plane did you use?  Was SIM ACARS recognizing everything correctly like status of light switches being on and off, etc?

This is great work but now we need someone to get in touch with Alejandro and convince him to release the source code for SIM ACARS so that we can add functionality for FS 2020 to that and then we'd have one ACARS program that connects to them all.

Is anyone here a close friend/contact of Alejandro?  He has been absent for a while now -- it's a shame to not continue on with SIM ACARS.  I would be happy to work on it if given the source code, so if someone can get him on here to get his opinions/plans/ideas about the future of VAM and SIM ACARS, please contact him and ask him to log onto the forum.

It will not work without being further developed upon to map its settings to FS2020.  Alejandro does not participate here anymore and doesn't seem to be developing VAM/SIM ACARS anymore, so, it's unlikely at this point.

This error is introduced with PHP 7.3 and above.

I actually don't recommend it and I personally have never upgraded it.  You have to understand that VAM has not been properly updated in quite some time.  Upgrading CAKE may resolve this particular error but create dozens of other errors.

The proper course of action here is to do what you said you wouldn't do.

VAM doesn't work properly on anything higher than PHP 7.2 it's as simple as that unfortunately.

Depending on the versions of MySQL and PHP you are using, the DB Schema indeed will give errors when you run them.  You have no choice but to correct the error AND THEN FINISH RUNNING THE REST OF THE SCRIPT.  I capitalized that part to show its importance.  If you continue on without correcting the errors, you will end up with a botched website.

I suggest you delete your current installation and start over.
