Anyone trying the UDP setup in WideFS.

Just wondering if anyone has tried out the UDP option with the interm version of WideFS? Thinking about trying it myself.

I'm using it in my 8 PC cockpit setup. There are occasional rare errors with blocks arriving out-of-order -- unlike TCP and SPX there's no guarantee of arrival in order (nor even of arrival at all) -- but so far those don't seem to do any harm. Avoid loops in the Network though (i.e. two separate paths) -- I had a FireWire loop originally, and that produced a lot of out-of-oder block problems.

I think the performance I'm getting is a bit smoother, and the FS frame rates a little higher, but I can't quote any precise figures at present.
