WideFS, Wideview and keysend


Recommended Posts

I'm using WIDEVIEW for my forward view and was hoping to use "keysend" from my server (which has Epic installed) to pan/change the view. I have full FS2002 installed on the wideview PC but to use "keysend" I require WideFS on that PC as well, however, as you know you can't run FS2002 and WideFS on same PC. Am I correct ? At the moment I have the keyboard from the wideviews PC in the cockpit with me for view panning.

I'd like to set up some switches via Epic to pan the view on the other PC.

Any ideas ?

Cheers.

Yes. Since WideClient "pretends" to be FS, you can't run it whith a real FS present -- client programs would not be able to tell which to attach to in any case.

Sorry, no, unless you have another EPIC on the second PC and get the two talking. I know that's something R&R planned for the USB version but I don't know how far it's got yet. With the ISA version, under Win95/98, I provided EpicLink for this.

Otherwise it sounds like a good facility for WidevieW to provide. Have you suggested it to Luciano?

Regards,

Pete
