Mulitplayer FS Flying.

Mon Apr 25, 2005 1:11 pm

Hey I have always wanted to ask this but I would always forget. How do you play fs online? I started the process a few months ago but it was too confusing and I just gave it up. I have always wanted to fly with others online but I just couldn't understand the process of online flying. Now that I have better graphics and internet I want to try it again. Any comments.

You can either fly with a friend and host a room in the multiplayer section in the flight sim by telling him your ip address and he search for your game, or else you can just go to and join a room that you wana select and it joins it and starts up the game without you having to mess with it at all. I hope this helps you out! this is the link to the multiplayer cdrom games which fs2004 is listed under, as well as 2002.

Try flying on , it will be the most realistic FS experience. Fly online with voice speaking to ATC and other aircraft talking around you. All you have to do is buy a small headset with a mic and you're set!

Its a great program , and once you get the hang of it (A bit complicated to install) its a blast.

They're is ONLY ONE bit of software now needed for connecting to VATSIM.. Now that SB3 (Squawkbox 3) has been released, you simply download and install. You dont even need a registered copy of FSUIPC for it anymore - it comes with it 

With SB3 you actually see the traffic moving smoothly, unlike SB2 where it was all jumpy. You can watch how good someones landing is!


EDIT: I forgot to say that new pilots MUST visit to avoid problems  Wink
