Windows XP flight sims
Is any one able to run FMS or Cockpit Master on Windows XP? Some one said Real Flight G_2 works.
Also has some one been able to wire up a USB interface and maby some software for those sims.
Thanks for any information Der Zip

the home version of xp may not work but the compatability feature in pro should play it the pro version works way better here with what we do

FMS ver7 is running fine on my home version of XP.
Can't use the transmitter interface parallel or serial though.
I use a joystick for now, until I can get a Tx interface built.
Speaking of Cockpit Master, there is nothing on their web
site that says anything about what hardware interfaces
it can use. Nor is there any support offered on their web site!

Those are some good inputs. If xp home don't work, buy xp pro.
Still looking for a USB interface for a joy stick or transmitter.
I guess Cockpit Master team is swamped right now trying to get their BackYard version released.
I'm sure they can help with interfaces when the pressure lets up a little.
Cockpit Master has excellent slopes but not many slope planes. We did a few slopers for free down load and have our electrics here as well. http://www.harborside.com/~birdworks/bwhome.htm
Just click on the plane you want and at bottom of that page follow the directions.
Lots of lift Der Zip

I'm using a USB joystick with FMS ver7 and WinXP home ver.
It's a logictrol wingman extreme.
Wasn't any problem to use it. Just plug it into USB port
and WinXP configures it as a joystick. FMS works fine with it.
