Can I play online with someone that is using MS Flight Sim X

Postby Vinura » Mon Feb 21, 2011 7:42 am

Can my friend be using Microsoft Flight Sim X and me using FlightGear and we both play/fly online through multiplayer on the internet or via a LAN cable?

Is that possible?

Please reply ASAP.

Thanks in advance!

That can't be done on the FlightGear Multiplayer because there isn't a client for MSFS/X. However you can fly FlightGear on the VATSIM network (an MSFS/X-Plane online network) because there is a "workaround" for hooking FlightGear to SB747. See here for more info. As well, do a search in the forums for "SquawkGear" and you'll find more information.

Hope that helps...

Regards,

Chris
