Just wondering, I got it and registered and paid for it (note to our Indian
friend - emphasis on paid) to use with squawkbox, but what other programs do
the panel commonly use with it?

Programs I run with WideFS:
- ActiveSky (always; used to run free FS Metar, which is still very
good)
- SquawkBox (very occasionally -- mostly I just run it on the main PC)
- MyFSGoogle (very, very occasionally)
- Moving Map (occasionally; freeware by Rana; from AVSIM)

Maybe someday, if I ever do some REALLY long IFR flights:
- Scumari FMC (freeware) http://fmc.scumari.nl/
- FSPause (freeware by Patrick Fabre; download from AVSIM)

Hi Canuck
I use WideFS to run the flightplanning and flightfollowing program
FS commander ( see http://www.fscommander.com/ ) on a
separate notebook. That works great

Hi Pete,
I am running Firefox v1.0.6 and his site is coming up fine, maybe it might
be in your setup of Firefox that is stopping you from getting into his
site??

Wow! Jan looked at your website, that is one impressive looking set-up.
Thanks for the tip btw, I was using an older nav program i think its FSNav
(without firing up the laptop) I blv it was developed for FS98 and it is
getting a bit old in the tooth.

I was thinking of maybe placing a Wx prog on the laptop anyone got any
suggestions as to a stable one for the NW?

Or indeed any other progs preferably freeware to utilise in this way. I
wonder is there any FMC that can be used over the NW to take the strain off
of the main PC running FS9.

TIA

Canuck

I use it for any stand-alone program that needs a connection to FS... such
as, Project Magenta instruments, and Nav3.1 (beta)...

That's strange - it works perfectly on my Firefox.

Yes, the pictures appear fine on that link Peter with Firefox 1.0.6. Very

Hi Chanuck

As you can read in the online manual of Activesky, ( see
http://www.hifisim.com/asvwebdocs/asv_user_guide.htm#in...
you can use this program over a network using WideFS
Butt it is not free

There are FMC's that can be used this way, from project Magenta
( see http://www.projectmagenta.com/)
But also not free (at all)

See you, Jan

Aha! Nav 3.1 Beta - that's the one I was referring to above not FSNav. I
find it a little unstable though.
Seems there has been no further development in it since FS2000 which is a
shame.
Anyone got any experience of FS2004 Super Flight Planner 3.0.1 or
Courseplanner (the second of which I blv is shareware)

He released SFP 3.02 today, but I am having some problems with it.

NAV 3.1 worked fine with FS2002, but you have to build the database
using FS2002. Once you have a database it works in FS9 (for me
anyway).

I couldn't get Nav to work in FS8 even with support emails.
Built database but no items would ever show up on map.
Still in Nav folder and willing to try aGaiN.

I got it working but had to install it on both machines and ran the database
tool on the main machine and saved it to the laptop. Works fine but see my
TCP issues post.
