Could WideFS be my solution to what I'm trying to do here?

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,


My system:




Sabertooth Z87 i7 4770K Quad Core OC 4.2

Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti 6 Gb


A short time ago I did an upgrade to my flight simulator and added two monitors, one in each door for side views.


The new load of opening two new 2D views and dragging them to my side monitors is quite a bit more load on my system even know I'm running a GTX 980 6Gb card.


Everything runs great in low density scenery situations...but


I find that I'm running into the odd out of memory errors in dense scenery situations...


I have an opportunity to purchase another computer identical to mine that I could network together, if I were to do this would be possible to run the two side monitors off the second computer's video card to lighten the load and improve frame rates for the whole setup?


What would be the best way to combine the two computers to utilise the full resource of both to be able to kick the settings up and still maintain my 30 fps?


Would using "Widefs"  be the program to accomplish this?


Any feedback or recommendations would be greatly appreciated to help make the decision to purchase this second computer!


Thanks in advance,

No, not at all. WideFS merely extends the FSUIPC application interface to other computers, for running those applications separately. What you are mixing it up with is WidevieW, by Luciano Napolitano.

Ah ok...


Sorry about that!


Before I go, though...just wanted to thank you for clarifying that and also thanks for all your work creating FSUIPC!, with out it, my simulator would not be what it is!
