Widescreen not working


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I just registered FSUIPC4 and widescreen. I have FSUIPC4 working in FSX and FS widescreen is shown enabled in the FSUIPS4 setup. When I run the client on another networked PC, it tries to connect, but can't establish one. FSX and FSIUPC4 are installed on a Vista 65 bit system, the client is running on XP Pro. The firewalls on both machines have been disabled.

The contents of the client log are:

********* WideClient Log [version 6.78] Class=FS98MAIN *********

Date (dmy): 19/12/08, Time 15:56:00.875: Client name is TAMMY

Anyone know how to resolve this problem?

Hi,

by Widescreen I assume you mean WideFS?

I am no expert but the log shows that the client cannot receive the server broadcasts. With these broadcasts the server tells he client its details so it can connect automatically. The reason for this can be security software but since you say that firewalls are off this shouldn't be the case. Is your network working fine otherwise? Can you share files and printers? Do the computers see each other?

Also look into the network properties and make sure both machines are in the same workgroup.

If that doesn't help, sorry, not other idea.

Regards

Frank

The answer is in the logs:

2125 Trying to locate server: Need details from Server Broadcast

Your two PCs are probably in different Workgroups. For broadcasting to work you need them to be in the same workgroup. Just change the name of one to match the other. Alternatively, you can simply use the ServerName and Protocol parameters in the WideClient.INI file to allow the client to know where the server is without broadcast reception.

Anyone know how to resolve this problem?

You could have found out by looking at the documentation supplied in the WideFS ZIP file. That is why it is provided.

Regards

Pete
