Thanks for that.
Any noticeable decrease in Flightsim performance?
I assume that you are using WideFS
Alastair / Frank,
I got these running over my network and very nice it is too. I found the labels on AI Aircraft / Airports etc would only appear briefly but the porgramme itself works well. I had difficulty in optimising the flight following, getting the balance between the tilt and the aircraft altitude proved fiddly. I found keeping the view above the aitcrafts position most effective.
I did find that polling the aircraft's present position, position + 1 minute and AI Traffic simultaneously occasionnaly caused syncing problems with one element. Could this be why Frank is locking up? I don't thik it's his connection speed, he has 4Mbps D/L, I'm on 2Mbps and can stay on solidly.
Perhaps it's the LAN speed, are you running 10Mb or 100Mb LAN Frank? That may be the bottle-neck, data transfer via the LAN. (I'm on 100Mb LAN).

Can anyone (with WideFs) please check out this link.
It is a small? programme to link up MS Flight Simulator and Google Earth running on the second computer.
Requires registered versions of FSUIPC and WideFS
I have the former, but not the latter.
Ps out of interest Google Earth has a 'Flight Simulator' mode.
Press 'Ctrl G' and a small aeroplane icon will appear.
Left mouse button + forward or back to dive/climb. Right mouse button + forward or back to speed up/slow down. Mouse left or right to bank.
