JoinFS "Flight server" with CCP/FSX@War running

Postby edakridge » Tue Feb 21, 2017 4:04 pm

What we at the USNVA are experimenting with is a full time JoinFS connection running on a so called "Server Computer". This server is running a "Bare Bones" install of FSX, CCP, and FSX@War. The server is running CCP in "Single Player" mode and Broadcasting the Air, Sea, and Convoy objects across our in house "Network". This eliminates the need for all players to "Sync Time" in FSX to use the CCP multiplayer function. This has always been a problem with FSX multiplayer due to internet lag, geographical distances, etc. The results thus far have been very favorable and are listed below.

1. The AI broadcast from the server is being received by players both in FSX and P3D.
2. Damage on AI objects is being transmitted to other players across JoinFS.
3. Once an AI object is destroyed (By Tacpack weapons) it is automatically deleted from the aircraft or objects list in JoinFS. Both on the server and client ends.
4. If a player does not have the AI installed, he is able to sustitute it for a "Generic" item.

It is our hope to do the same with FSX@War once Peter gets the transference working. (Which I know that He is working on.) My question is this: Is anyone else experimenting with this, and what results are you having? The more data that we all have to work with will only benefit the "Combat" Flight Sim community. It is my opinion that broadcasting from the server can only help those that are flying on lower end computers, as they will not have to run CCP or FSX@War in the background.

Same here. FSX@war not working so far, but satisfactory with CCP and TP

We had similar results. I understand that v1.1.7 will hopefully addresses the remaining FSX@War issue. I am not sure that will address the A2A damage, but maybe it will do that as well.

I think I should be able to fix the A2A damage on network aircraft, but that won't be in 1.1.7, but a later version.

Hi Motus,

Thanks for the offer. Once I've finished implementing some of the current features that are going in I will very likely require some assistance in the near future. Will be in touch.

Best regards,
Peter

I would love to get CCP up and running on the US Central Server. I have it installed, but at this time I have no idea how to set it up properly. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

We sent a PM to Peter a week ago for discussing FSXatWar-CCP/JoinFS compatibility.
Looking forward for his response but no answer yet.
