Multiplayer in 4.3

Postby BlueBird1 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 2:23 pm

Morning all,

Does anyone by chance have a step by step instruction on connecting with Multiplayer in V4.3. I have watched the video on the main web page.... but it does not show all of the steps and wondering if anyone has taken the time to do that. My dad and I both have V4.3 and want to try formation flying. Thanks in advance.

Respectfully,
Bluebird1

Hello,

Our Learning Center documentation has detailed steps on hosting and joining multiplayer: https://prepar3d.com/SDKv4/prepar3d/net ... rview.html

Hi everyone,

I read with great attention the P3D documentation on multiplayer as Rob says...!

I've done a lot of tests in LAN, or local area network, and it works.

But the problem is to create a WAN connection, either via the Internet, to be able to connect with friends from other countries. I know that there are possibilities like JoinFS, or FSHost, or others... But these possibilities do not allow the host to choose the weather, the terrain,... in short the context of the session. The question is therefore as follows:

Does P3D now allow a connection via the Internet, and allow a host session and clients from all over the world?

If not, does P3D plan to create this opportunity in the future?

Please answer precisely

Yes, you can connect to the same session over the internet. You can create scenarios including changing weather settings and locations and have others join these sessions.

Thank you Rob... but how????

Because the user manual provided by P3D only works in LAN, and absolutely not in WAN... It would really be nice for everyone to have an official and functional method! Because I see on all the forums that simmers are looking for solutions to make this multiplayer work via the internet...!
The link you give above (https://prepar3d.com/SDKv4/prepar3d/net ... rview.html) only works in a local connection (LAN)!

Thank you for finding a reliable solution for all those who expect a simple solution...
