View Full Version : Multiplayer Forum Welcome!
05-01-2004, 11:20 AM
Welcome to the Multiplayer Adventures Forum. If you like multiplayer events that are a bit different, then you are going to love this forum. While anything multiplayer can be discussed here, the main focus will be to use our FS aircraft to go places and do things together. The key word here is Events
You will need some things to fully participate. You must have Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 or 2004. You will likely need FSNavigator to find some of the places we are going and to get in and out safely. You will need the Teamspeak client to communicate with other pilots and guides on our trips. And, depending on your interests, you will need some other multiplayer software and additional scenery occasionally. Not everyone will want to do everything. You'll have plenty to choose from, that is for sure.
The major events will be posted on the FlightSim.com news page. If you want to know what's coming up early, this forum is the place to get the information.

I think that this could be the most positive and radical change to the site for at least the past three years, especially seeing popular "events" have been in the past.
Good luck with the new idea. This even sounds like a virtual flying club!

Are virtual flying clubs allowed to post their multiflights here, for the purpose of having other pilots join in on the flight and not advertising their club that is.

That is so cool, Nels. Great thinking. I must brush the dust off my virtual golf clubs.
For those of us motor racing fans who think that there is more to it than going round and round in circles and occasionally hitting each other, maybe you'd consider a bit of Formula 1, as well!

Perhaps we could somehow coordinate multiplayer flights for the RTW Race next year over this forum?

Sounds like a great idea, and as much fun as I had in the RTW flight, I know I will be participating in lots of these events! :)

I agree with TW here. A HUGE step up for flightsim.com! Glad you decided to incorporate this forum in here, Nels! Thanks.
And as BJ says, this will be very enjoyable seeing how succesful RTW2004 was.
I'm glad you guys are appearing one by one here! I'll be back later.

I actually got to use the multiplayer, but never got to fly. When I got there, people were landing and left. When someone else was going to fly with me, they had to leave. We spent most of the time getting me TeamSpeak. Pretty cool thing.

What is the step-by-step idiot's guide to getting started with this? How about as an observer first?

You don't need anything to get started with this. Just register for this or the next event and show up a little early. Start the simulator(after a fresh system restart),go to the airport or starting place for the event, get in the aircraft you will be using and hit flynow. Then go to flights in the menu bar ,then multiplayer then connect. At the next screen type in the name you want to use then the IP address for the server we'll be on.(usually 220.127.116.11), then hit search,then wait till the session name appears in the box below, then hit join.When the simulator opens agian you'll be on the server with everyone else. You can "talk" in the chatbox opened with the return key. Open the box, type your msg then hit the return key again to send. You will see the replys in the green scrolling band at the top of the screen. When one of us says hello to you just say hello back and let us know you're new to this (we'll know anyway cause most of the time it's the same ol' crowd) and we'll take you step by step the rest of the way. There are a number of things, tricks, software, hardware and a few add-on programs that make things easier and more enjoyable but you don't need any of them at first, you can just pick them up as you go. There's always a few that get to the events early (as much as an hour) and we are all glad and willing to help anybody that needs it. It's a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and we really enjoy having new folks come along. Most or the time the forum moderators will open the server on the day before the event, for a little while, so anyone who wants to can check their connection. This is another great time to get help with anything you need. The server we use recognizes FS2002 and FS2004 only, and I usually enter the multiplayer in a default aircraft then change planes after I'm "hooked-up". Come on out, nothing to lose, it's all free and if you don't like it then just disconnect. You'll like it though and be back for more. Look forward to "seeing" you on the server.
This reply is getting a little long so if you think you need anything else just drop me a line at email@example.com or a private msg here. I'll be glad to help you further if you think you need it.

Im another newbie to the multiplayer thing. I would love to join one of your events. What i would like to know whether my connection can handle it. I am from sunny South Africa, and due to a monopoly in the telecoms sector, broadband cannot be called broadband here. I have a rather slow 256k ADSL connection. To give you an idea, the fastest connection available in SA (pricewise) is a 1024k ADSL connection. The 2mb and up diginets that im sure a bunch of you guys use, cost in the region of R176000 per month, without internet access. Divide that figure by six to get a dollar ammount. Anyways, enough ramblin, do i need a faster connection, cause i will probably have a high ping as well.

Gome right along and join us pal.
We have our server down at the moment due to relocation.....
Having said that, Our server will only be on an ADSL line and therefore, regardless as to what the download speed of the line is, the upload will always remain the same (256K). Therefore you shouldn't have any problems with your conection whatsoever.
Shoot us an email and we will gladly put you on our private email list so that you will be informed of upcoming events.

You picked the right crowd Jeff,,,come on out and join us on the next event. This IS the best site for "newbies"...regardless of equipment.
Enjoy that title while you can,,,,you won't be a "newbie" long, then you'll be an on-line sim-nut just like the rest of us knuckle-heads.
Welcome in advance and look forward to you joining in on all the good times...take care till then.

We were all "newbies' at one time. Feel free to join us anytime. I have a webpage that I put up some tips and tricks on regarding Multiplayer Flight Simming. Check it out at http://home.houston.rr.com/maddatshell/ and click on the FS Multiplayer Tips link. It will help you set up Teamspeak (voice communications program) and also has lots of other great info and troubleshooting tips.
