About:

SWIFT - Is a multiple simulator, and OS pilot client. SWIFT is an independent (private/non-commercial) software project creating open source software for flight simulation. It is intended to be used as an interface to VATSIM ATC.

Purpose of this page: To assist FS9 users on how to setup SWIFT in a network environment. This page is NOT intended to teach you to use SWIFT.

Author of this page:
Michael Lehkamp KCVG. YouTube credits to Andreas Fuchs.

 What you need:

1. Microsoft FS2004 (also known as FS9)
2.
FSUIPC
3.
WideFS
4.
SWIFT (PLEASE NOTE: Regardless of operating system, use the SWIFT 32 bit version as FS9 was written in 32 bit.)



DIRECTIONS:
 

 1.

 
Assuming you have FS9, FSUIPC, WideFS working, download the latest version of SWIFT 32 BIT to your main PC running FS9. Install the program and setup as documented in this YouTube video HERE. (See note A1)
    Note A1: Author in YouTube video is showing you how to setup using X-Plane. Proceed as he instructs but make sure you select "FS9" on each page rather than "X-Plane".

 2.

 
Now that you have SWIFT "kind of setup" on your main PC running FS9, it is imperative you make a model set. A model set is how you will view other pilots planes as well as how your plane will appear to them. So install your model set as documented in this YouTube video HERE. (See note A2)
    Note A2: Author in YouTube video is showing you how to setup using X-Plane. Proceed as he instructs but make sure you select "FS9" on each page rather than "X-Plane".

 3.

 
Now install (the exact same version of SWIFT as you did on the PC computer) onto your networked PC. Do not mix versions. (See Note A3)
    Note A3: Even though I did, I do not believe you need to make a model set on the Client PC as you did for the main PC in Step 2. I believe it reads the model set from your main PC.



  At this point, I will asume you have installed SWIFT on your main PC (with FS9) as well as on your client PC.
  Now I share with you how I proceed next:
  First Start FS9 on the main computer. Set up everything as you normally would for a flight.
    Then start the Swiftlauncher application on this same computer and click on the "Core" tab at bottom. IMAGE
  Next Minimize FS9. Then in Windows go to Start-All Programs-Accessories and choose "Command Prompt". Type in ipconfig and hit enter
  Make note of the address as seen in this IMAGE. Understand that you should only have to do this once. Keep a note of your address for future flights.
  Next Go back to FS9 and bring up the "Multiplayer" window. Enter your IP address and click "join" as outlined in this IMAGE.
   
  Now Start the Swiftlauncher application on your client PC and choose the "GUI" tab at bottom. IMAGE
 

  At Last Connect and you should be good to go! IMAGE
