"This morning at around 0200UTC another user and I were to meet at KNZY (San Diego North Island Naval Air Station) to do a little for-fun dogfight practice.  Both of us were on mpserver02.  He was using one of Dave Culp's F4s and I was in the CVS A6E.  However, although I could see his plane, he was not in the pilot list and I could not communicate with him.  Several resets did not alleviate this.

I was using the Win32 build from Fred's site dated 20090627.  Reverting to a build from 20090523 alleivated the problem."





Both pilot list and chat rely on Nasal, while the mp aircraft itself does not. Any sign of a nasal error in the terminal? Could be very early in the start-up.




In fact there have been quite a few nasal errors.  I had been ignoring them, because I thought I'd read here that one was related to startup being called before METAR was done importing (although I had felt that had been solved but was still happening? so maybe it was something else and I wasn't paying close enough attention).  But as of right now I am back on the 6/27 build and I haven't been able to reproduce the error.  If it happens again, I'll snip the console output before I shut it off, and report findings here.

Speaking of CVS builds -- Fred, I see there's a new one on the FTP site for 7/26, but I'm getting http error "550: Not a directory" when I attempt to open it.  Anyone else having this problem?
