  • Final Flight?

    The multiplayer servers shut down on Tuesday. I think I'm going to try to dig out a joystick and throttle to try to do one last group flight on Monday night. I just have to get it to download my DLC which hasn't been working since I've moved to Windows 10 (but also tried on 2 Windows 7 machines).

    Hopefully I'll see some of you online, even if I have to stick to Hawaii in the Stearman.

    Hawai'i. The biplane, I'm there. Let's remember Nova as Tristan would have wanted to attend had he had access to internet (which he does not have in Africa on Safari currently). C'mon, Pilots! Let's find Waterman in multiplayer for one last hurah on that platform that brought us all together. Load up and test your Microsoft Flight installation plenty early (days early) and make sure everything still works.

      It's working finally! Woo Hoo! I'm good for anywhere. Prefer the Carbon Cub, but can do anything and everything! Now to just dig out my joystick...

        It's been a long time. Let me see if I remember correctly... If I use Stone Lance's installer to paint my Maule in that wonderful livery Novawing painted just for me, you Microsoft Flight pilots not having that livery won't even see a default livery Maule but will see a silver wedge, correct ? Therefore, I need to fly only default liveries. As long as Waterman flightlead can get some DLC loaded up, I'll have my hangar full and tested.

        Who else is coming ?

          I screwed up... I got so tired last night I shut down my PC to go to bed. And this morning GFWL is not working again... From the Flight page it's a problem on their end, but frustrating.

          So I got all my planes, and the pre-requisites for Alaska, but not Alaska itself or Hawaii. I was able to "hack" Hawaii in, so should be able to do that.

          You are right though, if you use a different livery you'll just be the UFO to anyone who doesn't have it.

            I should be able to make it. If not, I'll at least be on here and there over the weekend, Sunday especially.

                I helped Llama fix his tonight... I'll try to simplify the instructions..

                1. Download Miniweb: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mini...atest/download
                2. Extract Miniweb to the C:\miniweb. Inside that miniweb you will have a folder htdocs and the file miniweb.exe.
                3. From the file browser in the Microsoft Flight Lobby, download the two files: config.xml and XLiveServices.dll
                4. Move config.xml to C:\miniweb\htdocs\
                5. Open a command prompt as an administrator (Right click and run as administrator).
                6. Change to the miniweb directory (type in without the quotes: "cd \miniweb")
                7. Type in (without the quotes): "miniweb -p 80" -- Leave this window open.
                8. Open you web browser and go to http://127.0.0.1/ --- you should have a blue screen that says Miniweb.
                9. Copy the downloaded XLiveServices.dll to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games for Windows - LIVE\Client\XLiveServices.dll (you can overwrite the original)
                10. Run C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games for Windows - LIVE\Client\GFWLClient.exe

                You should now be able to download the DLC.

                Llama and I ended up flying in Flight for about 4 hours tonight. I plan to fly in there the next two nights as well if anyone wants to join me.

                        Waterman981 for me.

                        And both tonight and tomorrow I probably won't be on until about 10 PM ET, but if you have nothing else going feel free to jump in and I'll join you when I can.
