Running FS2002 While Doing Other Things

Fri May 20, 2005 8:36 pm

A basic question for you. How can I enable FS2002 to run while I am doing other things, i.e. on the Internet?

Cheers.

I just have another computer sitting next to my FS computer. I also can't run more than one program without the sim pausing.

If you mean that it stops when you go on to something else try going to the options menu and then "settings - General" and then deselecting
'pause on task switch". That should fix it.

Also a good tip during running other applications,

FS normally is at full screen, if you want to be on Windows with the FS label in the Start Bar. Simple, once you are on the FS press ALT + ENTER at the same time, it will resize the FS window and you will be able to see your applications.

The unpause option is another good solution:D
Best Regards!!! Eduardo Lepe.
