Connecting FS2002 and Smiths Aerospace FMS


Recommended Posts

I'd like to connect a Smiths Aerospace Flight Management Computer (runs on PC, usually used for pilot training) to the FS2002 for visualization of the outer environment. The Simulation runs in the FMS, the Fs2002 should just delliver the secenery outside. Both programs run on different Computers now.

is the FSUICP and the WideFS the appropriate thing to get this working? Or can I get it working with a usual multiplayersession in FS2002?

I don't know which would work out best to be honest. It isn't something I've done. You may want to poll users of the Aerowinx PS1 747 simulator. They use a program which links it to FS just for the scenery view. I've seen it running and it looks okay. (I think there's a link to in on the http://www.schiratti.com/dowson page. Look on the list at the right-hand side).

Whether multiplayer would be smoother or easier or not I don't know. You could try linking up two PCs and run multiplayer between two complete FS installations -- put the one you are considering using for the views into observer mode and fly the other.

Maybe others who are implementing this sort of thing will chip in with their views too.

Regards,

Pete
