I'm having an issue where I can't amend my flight plan after filing it. If I pre-file a flight plan, connect to VATSIM, click "Fetch From Server", change something, and then click "File Flight Plan", nothing sticks. If I click on "Fetch From Server", it will just load my pre-filled flight plan and VATSPY will show my old flight plan. This used to work in older versions of vPilot but seems to have stopped working sometime in the last 6 months or so.

You won't be able to make any changes to your flight plan if a controller has made any changes or assigned a beacon code. My best guess is that some controller has locked the flight plan in this way after you connected.

This happens immediately after you connect so I doubt that's the issue.

Don't know then ... maybe they made a change on the server so that you can't modify a prefiled flight plan.

I figured it out, you have to delete the +VFPS+ part of the remarks before it will let you re-file.

Thanks for posting the fix ... I'll modify vPilot so that it automatically strips out +VFPS+ when fetching the flight plan from the server, and when sending the flight plan to the server. (In case a user copy/pastes a flight plan that has +VFPS+ in it.)

I just released version 2.1.4 in the Beta update channel, which has this change.
