Fs2002 networking

Recommended Posts

want to know if there is somebody that knows about FS2002 and lan conections.

Is there anyway to use some module available (free or pay to use) that will allow a single flight to be shared across a network. In other words to have a true Pilot and Co-Pilot set up, where each person can choose his own views on that flight and manage the controls independently as per his responsibilties.

Any help?

Not that I know of. Only one of the PCs can actually be simulating the flight, so all the control inputs (rudder/elevator/aileron/throttle etc) have to be input to that PC. I did do a facility to link multiple ISA Epic Cards across a LAN, and you could have duplicate inputs that way. But it isn't terribly good because of the Network latency - ok for airliners perhaps, certainly not for aerobats and fighters.

If your pilots are both actually in the same room, sitting next to each other as in a real aircraft, then all you are really talking about is dual controls. that can most certainly be done -- FSUIPC provides multiple axis input facilites (see the Advanced Users guide). But you are then talking about one FS simulating PC again --- if you want a nice wide view then consider projection or use a Parhelia with three large screens configured as one wide one. You could use WidevieW and separate PCs, but your control inputs still all need to be directed to the serving PC, the one actually simulating the flight.

Hope this helps.
