Who is flying online ?

Recommended Posts

For me using Fly II is getting better and better. We have excellent aircraft, good addon scenery and now we can import every FS-scenery.What about online flying and get the expirience of flying in ATC controlled airspace ?Who is already using Fly and squakbox online and in which areas ?

What about making an online flight in Norway, UK or German airspace ?Do you use Roger Wilco, VATSIM or IVAO ?

I'm flying online in IVAO Network, the most of the time in Brazil, but some times in Europe (LPPT, LEMD, EGLL, EHAM) and USA (KDFW, KMIA).Regards, :-beerchugMarco Antonio SilvaBrazil

Hi all,I have been trying to fly on-line with the PMDG 757. However, I've ran in a number of problems. On the IVAO Networks the flightplan is not seen by the controllers, although it's visible in ServInfo 2.0. Using VATSIM this works fine, but there I have had several times other problems. First of all the SB Window locked up, I could neither move it or minimize it. I was able to fix by cleaning out the SBWindows entries in fly.ini Then several times, of course during approach procedures - very embarrassing the whole thing locked up and the only thing I could do was to reboot the PC.Of course I am using the latest versions of Fly!2 and SB 3.02.I am wondering if other people have similar experiences, because there is almost nothing to find in the forums about Fly!2 and SB 3.0.Perhaps we can persuade Lefteris to fix the problems with SB and perhaps do a better integration with RW.Best regards,--pim

I to have had problems with SB. To me, using the fly2 online server with roger wilco is fun enough. Most of my flights are VFR anyway. I setup a dedicated roger wilco server for people to use like this. However I don't think anyone is really using it. The address is rw.flydevelopers.com if anyone is interested.We should organize some online stuff. Maybe a contest to see who can fly the best traffic pattern and put her down on the numbers. Anyone think this would work?

Tried to make a flight from London City to Glasgow last night in the ERJ-145 and using Vatsim (callsign BAW550).Crashed to desktop twice before I realised I'd left multi-player on. Once this was turned off things went a lot smoother. There were some RW problems with London CTR and I couldn't make contact with text so I disconnected, but shortly after found myself looking at the desktop again.I have had better success before but this was probably the first time I'd tried since the 240 patch.Just checked the SimClients website and there's no mention at all about the Fly!2 client although the site is currently being rewritten. I don't know what the current state of licencing is for Squawkbox and whether the source can be made available.Andrew Luck18 miles SW EGSH

What do you think about an FLY IN at a certain airport (Europe or USA) on a special day ?;)

That sounds good to me. I think we should have two. One in the USA and one in Europe, to cover the time difference. We could get with Dave's Flightboards to get it posted on his site.I would say pick an airport with pretty good scenery, but not too much that some slower computers would have a problem with. We should also get someone to manage ATC services. Hopefully someone that would be pretty good at it. And of course real world weather.And the questions of aircraft. Should we allow any or only Fly2 stock planes. Anyone want to take on this task?

FYI, I got on the TRI online server tonight. Could only stay connected for about 5 to 8 minutes and then kept getting booted. That could be a problem :(

When I had only Fly! installed I always flew on-line with a bunch of others. But since upgrading to Fly! II every time I connect to the multiplayer I get disconnected in 10 minutes. Others have had the same problem and it is documented in this forum. Very frustrating. I basically haved stop trying to fly with the multiplayer feature until it becomes more stable.But I doubt it will ever be fixed.Qdog

Hi Chris,Actually I'm working on several brazilian scenarios with very detailed 3D objects and rendered terrain to burn a CD in the future. None of them is available at AVSIM's library (yet) since I have dial connection and it will take forever to upload. ;-)But when I finished, I will find a solution to share with all of you! :-)Take care,Keyton Cabral

Hi to all,I have a problem with the multiplayer.Last week I tried to use the multyplayer with my friend Henri WerijWe are both living in Holland.We had the same problem.Making a connection with the multiplayer was no problem, after aboutone or two minutes however we were disconnected from the server.Reconnecting to the server was only possible after restarting FLY2and we were disconnected after two mnutes again.Last days I tried it again with no luck.The message MULTIPLAYERSESSION DISCONNECTED occurs every two minutesafter being connected.The same goes for Henri.Can anybody tell me what to do?RegardsLeen

Anyone think TRI would release the server software? I would be happy with a binary, I'm sure we couldn't get the source. I don't see why thins would be a huge problem. I would be willing to run a Fly server if I could.

TRI can never release this code, as it contains proprietary code that is connected with their security systems. Here is a portion of Rich Harvey's response on this issue when we discussed it a while back in the Beta forum - I believe sharing this part of the conversation will not violate our beta agreements, and it shows that there is probably a way to handle this if someone is willing to take it on:"If someone was going to write a new server, then I'd suggest having them write whatever system they want, then use the SDK to write their own client software to connect. The SDK could also be used to spawn and move remote aircraft so they would be visible in the same world, and to transfer weather and other information (chat) across the network. As long as the user didn't try to connect to our server at the same time, there would be no interference between the two sides.This is part of the side-effect of code sharing. By using a common code base at TRI, we were able to share in new tech and accelerate advancements in Fly!. But, at the same time, we were rolling in code that is dependent across the company, which makes sharing that code more difficult (since other teams are still actively using some of this code in current projects)."

I don't want their source code. There are many companies that release a binary server for online game play. ID Software released a windows and a Linux server for Quake 3. EA Games has a standalone server for Battlefield 1942, (awsome game I might add!) and there are many others. I don't see the difference here. Tri could offer a compiled binary for those who are interested. I would be willing to sign whatever saying that I would not re-distribute the bin if they want.To me it seems that this would be a good move for TRI. There current server has got problems. Give us the bin and they can take theirs down. One less machine for someone to admin. What I'm wondering is, when the TRI server goes down next, will it ever come back up? Or will we be stuck with vatsim?PS - Last night I connected, got kicked before the engines were started. I'm frustrated here :(

Hi all,I am real astonished about the interest of having a FLY IN.I use to fly online via IVAO with Roger Wilco and squakbox and have no expirience with the FLY Multiplayer session.Via IVAO and VATSIM I would coordinate an FLY IN in the Europe region requesting ATC and using FLY scenery.Who is interested ?:-)

Alejandro,Thanks for that info. I wasn't aware of that. That gives us a little hope!! We all KNOW we are users of the best consumer flight sim for the PC oh yea, and the MAC. Lets hope he gets it fixed.
