Best way for multiplayer ?

Postby dureiken » Wed Sep 07, 2016 9:04 pm

Hi,

we are about to build a virtual wing with some friends (4-6).

We are wondering what is the best way to play multiplayer ? maybe a dedicated server ? hosted by a team mate with high bandwith ?

is it usefull or tunggle or P3D hosting is enough ?

Thanks a lot

Would like to know as well and, also, what is your website and/or can i join you, brother?

I have extensive online flying with Falcon BMS and some Vatsim time.

Cheers.

CVW-8 runs MP all the time in P3D. Last night I hosted + 5 clients. Ran FSX@WAR and CCP. Launched from CV(ccp entry) recovered CV(.tps- has TACAN/ILS). Used TeamSpeak 3(guard) and in game comms during flight. Flew for 2 hr's pretty smooth. Did notice one item of be aware of. If you are hosting and on the CV, don't go to an outside view, top down, after landing! Threw me off the ship and made it "jump" several feet.
I have the ports 6112-6122 open and an "exception" in my firewall.
If anyone wishes to join us check us out on our web site http://vcw-8.com/index.php
PS we are small, only 10 members (all "SR" types). Fly Mon and SAT at 0100Z and 0200Z on WED, check us out, visitors welcome!

Thanks for your answer

when you say you run MP via P3D, it's just hosting with p3D basis system ? in network => multiplayer under game ?

Thanks

Hi Pop....Mower here...

I now have P3D V3 but it could be a while if ever before I can get the P3D version of TP and Rhino...very expensive.
