Thread: Reality XP

on my web journey I stumbled on Reality XP. Does anybody have some experiences to share concerning this software?
This site says it's not running in a networked environment, is this still true? How doest it compare to Project Magenta RJ?
So many questions... "much to learn I have..."

Reality Xp is nice software but it needs to run on the flightsim pc. For instance Project Magenta runs on stand alone PC's running Wide Client. Reality XP replaces your aircraft panel.________________________

thanks for your fast reply, things become clearer now. Seems as if there is no way without PM... *sigh*

Well hold on there.....
Gwyn, is a perfect example of a complete simulator that runs on one PC. Even though there are multiple monitors, his sim runs great on one PC only. But that is also because the PMDG allows you to do this. (Undock) the instruments and drag them onto another monitor.

I too had hoped that Reality XP would be useful, but not for my project. Nice software for some gauges though. Their GPS' are really nice.Eric Tomlin-

There are some other options. Take a REALLY GOOD look at Gwyn's setup here on this forum. If you can configure the panels you want in the sim itself and can then undock them... then you can use his route to solving all of this.
Or look at some of the other "run on a network" gauge possibilities. There is FSXpand, the coming Ellie Systems offerings, FreeFD (freeware - unfinished but OK for some stuff), Opencockpits and a few others.
If none of these offerings fits you needs.... well..... looks like PM (en ga takusan desu yo)...... shoga nai ne'.

What plane did you say you were building again?

I thought Widefs allowed you to run your aircraft instruments ,gps, or your 2d panels, etc on one pc while running your outside view on another pc ??
Does it not do this ?

Ok. I guess the first thing to do then is decide which plane you would like to model your cockpit after. Once you have that much info, your decision process will be cut by two thirds (2/3). Decide between Smaller GA planes, Medium Planes Private/Commercial or, Large planes. Any of these general size catagories can be made more flexible by building a generic cockpit that is suitable for many different planes.
Good luck in your decision.
