I already had an account from before, but I forgot what it was. Also, I will be reusing it on the main computer. (Please PM me my account information.)

A ) All old accounts have been removed.
B ) Old emulator software will no longer function, must download new copy.
C ) Request from Martin a login to the configuration site.

Ok, I see, all old accounts were deleted prior to the release of this new version. Thanks for that info.

Hey guys im glad there are so many people interested and im delighted that there are so many new users as well. I dont like being the mean guy here but you all MUST MUST MUST read the directions. They clearly state what to do. Send me ONE pm with a username and password you want to use for the emulator.

I did that and got no reply I sent a resend but I don't want to tick off the owner as he says we can't PM you, since I got no reply I am unsure as to what to do, I'm new here and don't wish to make waves

Ok, apparently there's some confusion about this rule. Since Martin and Brian have instructed people to PM them a username and password they wish to use, you can obviously do that. But that only requires ONE PM. You may not necessarily get an immediate response. That isn't your signal to bombard them until you do. 

But this is the ONLY reason to PM them.
I think this quote makes it clear enough for you.

LOL, I sure hope it does.  :biggrin:

I'm not trying to be nasty about this whole PM thing, but Martin and Brian have clearly stated that they aren't pleased about the number of PM's they've received, and so I feel its my job to help control the problem. The best thing I can say is READ THE SETUP INSTRUCTIONS. They tell you precisely what to do.

Gentlemen, if you read Martin's letter to the newbies and my response you'll see that I DID read the instructions and did what was asked, Some of us newbies actually DO follow instructions, however the only reply from him was here in the forum addressed to the newbies, so I assumed he was including me as he had not replied to my PM sent on 11/12.

I feel the need to defend myself as I DID FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS, I run a radio message board out of Utah and I understand how frustrating newbies can be. I guess if I don't hear from Martin in a few weeks I'll send a request to the Brian

Waiting...

I didn't single you out. In fact, I didn't even come close to implicating you. In fact, newbies in general are hardly the target of my messages. There are a few particular eggheads I had in mind that have a hard time understanding what their told, and I figured it was those people that were the culprits of most of the PM's.

Still, the message is the same to everyone. Please abide by the rules. If the rules say to PM Martin or Brian ONCE, then do it only once. If it says you can do it again if they don't respond, do it only ONCE MORE. Realize that Martin and Brian have other obligations outside of this forum and project. I have no problem with people PM'ing within the guidelines that were set out. What I'm trying to stop are the people that PM these guys about every problem, every ocurrence, every little issue, 10-15 times a day. Those kind of things need to be posted on this forum. If you post here to get a key, don't follow that post with a PM. You get the idea.

Yes I have been overwhelmed by work these past few days. With the passing of my father about two months ago I have had a lot more on my plate to deal with. Not only that school and been brutal these past week or so. Extra work to do around the house, reports, tests and so on. I have seen everyones pms. Im not ignoring you. Even those who dont seem to be able to read instructions (not directly blaming anyone) I will send a response to set them on the right track. As for Brian he works Wed-Sun from around 4pm- 12pm each night give or take a few hours. My only time for contacting him is mostly when he gets home late in the evening so its a bit difficult to get quick communications between everyone. Its not fun going to bed around 1-2 and waking up at 6 every day. It wears me down and I just cant do it everyday. I am unable to make the keys for the emulator myself. That is a limitation to the software that generates it. I would love not to have a key but we have to keep some control over this emulator because some people will rip it apart (which we have seen in the past) and even atempt to use coding or certain aspects of the program. May I also not that this is NOT a finished polished version. We cant solve every little problem. Some of the locations in the configs dont work. Ok we got it. Were working on it too. Use a different location for now. For the most part there is little difference in temps and conditions between certain stations.  So in conclusion wait. Thats all im saying.  :cool3: Im thrilled that people are excited about the project and are interested in using it. We are only human so cut us some slack :P
