WideFS - List of supported external programs?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am thinking of hooking up my laptop to the main FS pc via purchase of WideFS.

Is there a list somewhere with the applications supported?

I was hoping to get FsNavigator to work on the laptop but apparently it is not possible. Any other flight planning tool/moving map that works this way?

Thanks

No, sorry, it would be impossible to maintain. But pretty much anything which is an external program to FS and interfaces to it through FSUIPC is a potential candidate. Some of these have links on the http://www.schiratti.com/dowson page (right-hand side).

Really I think you are going about it the wrong way. Work out what you want to do, then find an application which will do it for you.

FSNavigator not only is not an external program (it forms part of FS), it doesn't use FSUIPC at all.

As for others, I think there are a few though I can't think of all their names off-hand. The ones that spring to mind are Project Magenta's QuickMap and Ted Wright's "NAV3" (or it may be later now -- I'm a bit out of date with these things).

There's also a package called CoursePlanner, which you can use on a network without WideFS -- see http://forums.simflight.com/viewtopic.php?t=28211. I don't know much about it apart from what was said in that thread.

Regards

Pete
