FSUIPC install..whats wrong?


Recommended Posts

I have installed the fsuipc for the FSX

I start the game and then it asks me if i want to load the module and i trust pete's modules etc...

I click install

so now where is the options for the module ?i cant see anything new on the fsx screen...

The only thing i want to do is play fsx and connect other network pcs that i have to see multiple screens from the game..

i cant understand what else to do..i have read the docs but i dont get it..

In the wideclient ...do i have to configure something or i just run the exe and the program finds the server and connects?

In flight mode, when you press ALT to get the Menu, isn't there a new Menu entry, to the right of all the others, called "Add-Ons"?

I think you are making a mistake thinking FSUIPC has anything to do with that. In fact it isn't to do with any of my software. FSX itself supports multiple PCs (at least the DeLuxe version does, not so sure about the basic version). You have to have multiple copies so you can install the complete FSX on each PC. Alternatively you can use a program called WidevieW by Luciano Napolitano, but this still needs multiple FSX installs.

Now you are talking about WideFS, not FSUIPC. Have you purchased WideFS? What applications do you intend to use it with? As clearly documented, WideFS provides a Networked extension to the FSUIPC interface, and WideClient provides that interface on the client PCs. Programs which use FSUIPC can then be run on those PCs, thinking they are running with FSX. There's no way you get to "see multiple screens from the game" as you put it.

oh..nice..sorry then..im looking how to make fsx to run in multiple monitors..

a friend told me that i need fsuipc to do this..he made a mistake..

First of all i have 2 monitors on my Graphic Card and i want both of them running fsx

2nd i want to use other pcs as monitors to the main game to see other details of the game (cockpit,outside view etc.)

What can i do to make it possible? You said i must have fsx installed on each pc ? i dont have a problem but how can they synchronise each other with that program?

I have the FSX Deluxe version

I hope you can help me

Thanks :)

For the first time with FSX you can do it without extra software, just with FSX installed on each PC, but I've not tried it. Check the Help in FSX for "Multiplayer -- Shared aircraft". I've seen it demonstrated but I've not tried it myself.

In a shared aircraft you have several PCs all "flying" the same aircraft -- yours -- but one might be for the pilot, another for the co-pilot, etc. Each can obviously have its own arrangement of windows or cockpit views. You don't have to have a copilot of course, just his PC. ;-)

The other way is by using the payware package WidevieW - but this is more designed to give you multiple outside scenery views than inside cockpit views, as I don't think all the gauges etc stay synchronised. But check it out anyway. Google on WidevieW or Luciano Napolitano, the author.

i dont ask for a lot.. i just want my dual view monitor to print my cockpit on it and other pc viewing the plane outside ..the scenery ..

I have one problem..if you know something for it.. When i have the dual view enabled (From the windows properties) when i run the game and enter into a flight when the loading reaches 100% then the screen flashes black or white and sometimes i see the cockpit..

thanks a lot for your help Pete

P.S I apologize for my bad English(if i made some mistakes).. Im from greece and i dont practice it a lot... :)

Yes, you can do that with FSX's own shared aircraft system, or by using WidevieW. But you certainly do need FSX installed on both. And you probably want the more powerful PC to be the one showing the scenery.

Sorry, I don't know anything about that. It sounds like a video driver problem.
