WideFS Connect Problem


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello Peter:

I'm having a problem connecting with WideFS.

I have installed per instructions.

I start MSFS/FS9 on my desktop, start a flight, start WideFS on my laptop, it says it's connected.

I try to start SB3, which is now installed on my laptop as well as the desktop, and I get the error message, SB was unable to initiate a multiplayer session - SB will now close.

I try to start ASV, on my laptop, and I get the message ASV was unable to detect your FS9 folder. Please browse to it in the next screen which is a folder directory of my laptop.

FS Flightkeeper doesn't connect ether.

Here are the logs and ini files.

I try to start SB3, which is now installed on my laptop as well as the desktop, and I get the error message, SB was unable to initiate a multiplayer session - SB will now close.

WideFS is quite unconnected to Multiplayer. I really don't know anything at all about multiplayer -- you need SB support on that. SB3 uses FSUIPC/WideFS for getting the aircraft position and setting stuff like weather. It uses Multiplayer to provide the images of other flyer's aircraft.

I try to start ASV, on my laptop, and I get the message ASV was unable to detect your FS9 folder. Please browse to it in the next screen which is a folder directory of my laptop.

Again this is nothing to do with WideFS, which doesn't connect folders. I think you need to tell ASV where FS is so it can manipulate the cloud textures. This is to do with the Cloud facilities now added to this weather program. I think the documentation covers it well.

FS Flightkeeper doesn't connect ether.

And what does it say? Possibly it needs access to the FS scenery files in order to build its database.

Nothing you've said or shown indicates anything wrong with the WideFS connection, quite the contrary in fact. All the programs you refer to need other channels to FS's files as well as the FSUIPC/WideFS interface. I think you need to study their documentation a little more, please.

Regards,

Pete

So when WideFS say's it connected everything is ok from your viewpoint with WideFS, the problem is with SB3, ASV etc?

In at least the first two cases that is most certainly true. SB3 is complaining about the Multiplayer connection, which is outside of WideFS/FSUIPC altogether. ASV is merely asking for the full path to your FS installation so that it can manipulate the cloud graphics, something added in ASV from previous releases. it will be something like \\\... You probably need to make it a specific shared folder on the FS PC, and maybe even a mapped drive on the ASV PC. I'm pretty sure the ASV documentation goes into all this -- if not check with their support forum.

As for FlightKeeper, I don't know, but I suspect it needs to scan all your scenery files in order to build a correct matching database. It may have to be run initially on the FS PC, at least for speed in doing this, then have the database copied over. I know I had to do this with TrafficBoard.

The connection through WideFS looks okay from your logs, though short-lived because none of the programs actually ran for long because of the other connection issues.

If this is the case then I'll seek help elsewhere.

Yes, but do check the documentation for those programs more thoroughly first. I think these issues are normally covered in some detail.

Regards,

Pete
