View Full Version : Fsx Server Control Tool!
17 Nov 2008, 00:09
hey guys.. I use a dedicated server on fsx via gamespy. It is through a company so I do not have any access to the server. I was wondering if someone has developed or can develop a server control tool.. which allows me to kick/ban people. any feed back will be greatly appreciated:)
I did start on building a controller earlier in the year but due to no feedback i dropped the development.
What i had at the time was based on a server which would run as if it were a player hosting a game.
This means having a server with a good graphics card which a lot of server companies do not seem to provide.
Basic onboard motherboard/graphics is all most will allow.
Saying that provided it meets the minimum requirments for the sim it does not really matter (no-one is going to be looking at it).
Unless of course anyone has discovered if there is a dedicated server setting.
But i guess thats Microsoft, they like to screw things up, probably they have to get games/sims onto the shop shelves and mess up trying to get them there.
CFS, 2 & 3 were also totally bugged when it came to a dedicated server.
As for FSX looking at the API seems to show a rather old application that has an awfull lot of redundant/modified code.
However i did manage to get something going hence the original message, there is still a long way to go with it but as there was no feedback that was as far as i got.
If there is enough interest then i could always continue the controller.
Please note that i do not play the SIM that often here so there maybe other developments out there going on which i know nothing about.
