    New versions of FSUIPC and WideFS


    Pete,

    A very HAPPY camper here...after installing the new FSUIPC and WideFS
    files....my LAN that also uses WideView over 5 other CPU's is running SMOOTHER and
    FASTER than ever!!!!

    I have specified the use of UDP in the server and the clients....and while
    flying through clouds...or in and around clouds....the former frame rates of
    the clients just about DOUBLED themselves!!!

    I don't understand your magic....but I like it. grin.

    Regards,

    Mel

    Glad it works so well for you. It certainly seems to vary a lot -- some
    notice no differences.

    New versions of FSUIPC and WideFS


    Pete,

    I just noticed another enhancement of the seemingly....well
    knowlingly....faster exchange of data between my server and the clients.

    I am on a flight between Spokane WA and Seattle....just passing through a
    cold frontal area....and encountering turbulence......previously....my server
    view for the Captain would "rock and roll" for the horizon....and the
    clients would do the same...but NOT always right in sequence....they would lag
    just a bit...and it was noticeable for realism.

    This morning....those horizons are right in synch....proof to me that there
    was a huge improvement in the data exchange rates of WideView.

    Regards,

    Mel
