I've written several single user missions and would like to move up to Multi Player missions. I haven't been able to find any sources of information as to "How to" on this subject. Any advise or reference are greatly appreciated.Jake

Hi Jake,It's easy. Two-step process:
  • In ScenarioMetadata, set the IsMultiPlayer property to True.
  • Then, in your mission design, include a Player object for each player (for example, if you are creating a mission for 4 people to have a race, then you need 4 player objects. If you are creating a mission for 8 people to have a race, then you need 8 player objects).
That's pretty much it.If you have questions, there's a whole group of mission designers here who can provide answers. You can also look at their code, help beta test their missions, and download hundreds of free missions:http://www.flightsim...orxmissions.comCheers,

Hi, I am new to this and tried to design a mission. So far, as a single player mission it worked quite well. The problems came up, when i made a multiplayer mission out of it. I followed your description above. Wheni started FSX again and logged in to gamespy i wanted to host a session.The following error message came up:invalid argument detected (or something like this. I got that message in german, so please excuse a possible bad translation)I am able to host a session than, but unfortunately no free flight session anymore. Just missions.Does anybody know, how i can get that possibility back without re-installing fsx?Thank you in advance for your helpJ.B.Wings
