Beta Test > FSHost 3.1 Beta (INACTIVE)

FSX and FSHost (?)


Hi Russel!
From your comments it sounds like you're "in the know" regarding the multiplayer code in FSX. It doesn't really fit into the beta-discussions here, but perhaps you can give me a little tip. This "soon" FSHost server is set up to be replaced (don't say it too loudly, it might hear it and die too early :D). If FSX is completely different regarding multiplayer (as they've been "leaking") it might make sense to just get an old box to run FSHost until most people have moved to FSX -- if FSHost however will remain useful with FSX, I'd rather get a better box to use and be prepared.

What do you think? Should I prepare the server for FSX on the same server or should I just pull FSHost through on an older box? (if you can't reply, just say so :D :D)


Russell Gilbert:
I'm hoping to be able to support it.  Time will tell...

Sorry I don't have a better answer right now, but I'll let you know when I do.  :)


Walter Correa Jr:
Did someone try the Demo FSX with FSHost?
I am downloading it now (636MB) and will try soon.

Russell Gilbert:
Sorry the FSX demo won't work with FSHost.  They've changed to a completely different networking system -- no longer using DirectPlay now, which Microsoft says is officially "deprecated".  I still hope to have support in FSHost for FSX when it's released tho.


Hi Russell i really hope your fshost will work on the new flight simX i think i would be lost with out fshost it is an amazing little program and i would like to thank you for it to

all the best to you all
