  1. Check the FS2004 FAQ accessible from simflight.com main page, there are several tips about this particular problem...
  2. Giovanni, Wideview is not one of Pete's program, are you using WideFS? If Wideview you would be better off asking on its own forum at http://www.wideview.it/
  3. Mike, As I told you by email, check that you did configure WideFS to use the correct protocol...
  4. > I can't get the FS2002 Modules folder to come up after uninstalling and re-installing the sim. Are you talking about the Modules menu in FS2002 menu bar? Did you make sure that you unzipped the file in the correct folder? If you did FS2002 automatically loads FSUIPC, if it doesn't show up then you did not put it in the right place...
  5. Peter, That problem had been reported to me with the Parhelia, that is why I asked you to test. It is a problem with the drivers, what it needs is the attention of Matrox, and they did not answer to the other persons having this trouble. What you could do is send the opengl.txt file in the Glass Cockpit folder to Enrico, but it is a shame, it sure doesn't look good without the smoothing options, I guess I will again stay clear from the card until Matrox fix their drivers, if ever... Thank you for testing!
  6. Yes Peter, there is a difference with XP Pro, I thought it was a Home machine like the others... Check if you have "simple file sharing" enabled, go to the control panel, folder options, view tab and the last option in the advanced settings. Sharing should then work as with the Home edition.
  7. Pete, The simplest way is to go in the glass cockpit OpenGL menu (CTRL+M if needed) and enable font and line smoothing here. For XP, I suppose you are using IP, did you disable the firewall on this one machine?
  8. Pete, Could you please check that with the Project Magenta displays you can turn line and font smoothing on with the Parhelia? Thank you :)
  9. Tony, This error usually means a misconfiguration in the network, I'd advise the same as Pete: remove all network components in both your W2k computers in the device manager and re-install client, network card drivers and the IP protocol on each machine. If you still get the same error there's either something very wrong with the OS, or with the network card or its drivers, what are they?
  10. Giovanni, If you are waiting to see an image of FS in the Wideclient window you are using the wrong program, it is not the goal of WideFS, you need to use Wideview available here: http://www.wideview.it/
  11. Pete, As far as I remember the Dreamfleet FMC is a separate program, not a gauge or module or anything running within FS....
  12. Key2Mouse is available on Luciano's web site :arrow: http://www.wideview.it/
  13. Roger Wilco will connect on any computer connected to the internet, be it directly or through ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) or other mean to share a connection (dedicated software, router, etc...) WideFS is not in cause, you need to check your internet connection sharing settings, and yes the XP built-in firewall can interfere, I'd advise to turn it off and replace it with another solution that is more customizable. If you want more help we need more information about the way you share your internet connection...
  14. As Pete said, it looks like there is a typo with the UseTCPIP parameter, if that's it I believe that WideFS defaults to IPX so it will complain that it doesn't find the IPX protocol that is certainly not installed while in fact you want to use IP... Correct the ini file, that should work again, if not post your wideserver.ini and wideclient.ini in there and we'll try to help further :wink:
  15. Tony, Copy your wideserver.ini and wideclient.ini files in a message, that could help... If IPX be sure to enter the node number, if IP check that you do not have a firewall running. I used WideFS with W2k Pro and never had a problem with either IPX or IP. There may be a typo/oversight somewhere or a problem with the network, that file sharing works doesn't mean WideFS is properly configured, re-check your ini files...
