Hello Dave ....

Its all done via here...>>>

http://www.chocolatesoftware.com/

FS host....how to do it!
FS Host Spy ...lists all the Multiplayer servers and their IP Addresses.
FS Host Client .....required to connect via FSX only.

Multiplayer for FS 2002 and FS 2004 is reached by the FS 2002/2004 Multiplayer drop-down menus...(easy-peasy!).

I use it for FSX and FS 2004 on occasions, but very few folks seem to use it nowadays....Its not as popular as it used to be in times long ago!

Its still handy if one (or more) of your FS Chums (from Sim V?) wish to fly together!

Sometimes there are problems with players not opening their Modem Ports for access to the Multiplayer Server(s)...getting disconnected!

Lots of help in the Sim V Multiplayer Forum!

Can be lots of fun, for tours, fly-ins, training, etc...

Paul...G-BPLF in Multiplayer!

We used to have our own Sim V Multiplayer Server many moons ago, and it was popular amongst the FS 2002 and FS 2004 Simmers; but with the introduction of the new FSX (at the time) together with its association with the unpopular Microsoft "Gamespy" Multiplayer, the enthusiasm for Multiplayer dropped off, and the Sim V Multiplayer Server abandoned the scheme for both FS 2004 and FSX.
Without the complicated Multiplayer connection arrangement for FSX at the time, I suspect Multiplayer would have continued to engage more users!

Using FS Host the system still works for both FS 2004, and FSX (using FS Host Client).

....but it can be very lonely out there!.... :roll: .... :D ....!

Paul...G-BPLF.... :mrgreen: ....!

Tip: Pop the "FS Host Spy" and "FS Host" shortcuts on your desktop for immediate Multiplayer Server IP access!

Hello Dave....

Just fire up your "FS Host Spy" list, and pick any one of the Servers on the list, (except with the ones with a lock against them..you need a password for them).
They are all available to use for free....(Just watch out for any restrictions).
The address I picked was just a sample address from the list!
You just need to let your flight sim chum(s) know beforehand, to use the same address before the flight!

I tend to use an address which is not being used by someone else, to avoid annoying someone already on there, and to prevent anyone getting kicked off the Server, due to "port" problems!

On the list, if you click on one of the addresses being used, (Pilots), it will show you who is on there, (name).....it may be someone you know!!

Happy Multiplaying!

Paul... :D ...!
