Dear Peter, hope you are well. I am trying to run FSX on One machine and IVAO on the other and then use a PPT on FSX to communicate with Teamspeak on the second. Widefs works as does IVAO but I have tried to follow the below from the IVAO manual and can't find some of the files it is saying a suspect things have moved on. Can you assist please. Following is the Instructions.
- I have two computers in a domestic network, both connect independently to the Internet through
- In computer #1 I run FS2004 and Netint.exe. Into the FS2004/MODULES folder I have, amongst
other files, FSUIPC.DLL, WIDESERVER.DLL and WIDESERVER.INI (both necessary for WIDEFS).
I have also a joystick connected through USB.
- In computer #2 I run WideFS to connect with computer #1, UsrInt (Ivap in remote configuration),
TeamSpeak, ActiveSky 2004, etc…….Into the WideFS folder I have a file that we´ll need leter on,
1- Open the FS and in the menu bar go to MODULES-> FSUIPC, and select the BUTTONS label.
You have to decide the button in your joystick you’ll use to talk, once you have decided that, push
that button and you’ll see in the FSUIPC Options and settings a number in the #Btn. Write down
that number, in my case it’s 7 as you can see in the following shot:
Also tick the “Select for key press” option and “Key press to repeat while held”. Then we have to
decide the KEY we’ll use in the keyboard to talk, it must be a key taken from the ASCII table, so
not every key works. In my case I found that the optimal configuration is the SROLL LOCK button.
To configure that still in the above FSUIPC Options and Settings push the first SET button and
after the SCROLL LOCK button in the #1 keyboard. Then push the second SET button and push
SHIFT+SCROLL LOCK (first SHIFT and then SCROLL LOCK).
Now open the WIDESERVER.INI file which is located inside the FS2004\MODULES folder and
add the following to the [uSER] section, so it looks like this:

In my case it´s a 7 as you can see in the above picture, you should change that number to your
joystick button number.
Save the file and close the FS.
In computer #2:
Go to the folder where you have installed WideFS and open a file called WIDECLIENT.INI, again
find a section called [uSER] and add the following:
145 is the ASCII code assigned to the SCROLL LOCK key so do not change it, just copy and paste
those entries, G:\Teamspeak2_RC2\TeamSpeak.exe states the directory where you have installed
the TS, so you “must change that path” to fit your configuration.
Save the file.
We’ve almost finished!
The last step is to configure the TS itself, so run the TeamSpeak .Go to SETTINGS SOUND
INPUT/OUTPUT SETTINGS, in PUSH TO TALK hit the SET button and then in the #2 keyboard
push the SCROLL LOCK key. We’ve just said TS that the transmitting key will be SCROLL LOCK.
Now go to the TS SETTINGS---> OPTIONS----> and in the OTHER label tick the DISABLE DIRECT
INPUT option, this is very important, see the shot below.
