VSTARS/ERAM (requires standalone client)

In order to use VSTARS/ERAM with Audio for VATSIM, you will need to ensure you are using the latest version and also download the Audio for VATSIM standalone client.

Although at present you require the standalone client, we expect them to be fully integrated shortly.

Step 1: Download and install the Latest version of vSTARS/ERAM.

Step 2: Download and install the Audio for VATSIM standalone client.

Step 3: Connect to the network using vSTARS/ERAM in the normal way.

Step 4: IMPORTANT! Set your RDVS or VSCS as shown in the following graphics. Ensure that only PRI, TX, RX, are selected on in the vSTARS RDVS and only XMTR ON, PRI, and RCVR ON are showing in vERAM VSCS. In vERAM this can be accomplished by right clicking in the middle box, do not left click in the middle box.

Step 5: Launch the Audio for VATSIM standalone client, configure it using the settings button if using it for the first time, and hit connect!

The first time you run the standalone client, be sure to open settings and calibrate your microphone. When talking, the bar should be bouncing into the green band. If it does not, make sure you increase the mic volume using the slider.
