Want to keep using multiplayer in RealFlight G4.5 and G5.5?
We are making multiplayer server changes that will affect RealFlight G4.5 and RealFlight G5.5. You will still be able to use multiplayer in these versions! We are not shutting down the servers. You just need to follow the simple directions below.
RealFlight G4.5 users:
Right-click to download this file (4 MB), then run it on the machine where you have RealFlight G4.5 installed. This will not change what version of the sim you have installed.
You must apply this update by January 16th. After that date you will get only server connectivity error messages if you try to host or join a public session. However, you don’t need to wait. You can perform this step immediately. Just be aware that users who have updated will not see sessions hosted by users who have not, and vice versa.
Note: Version 4.50.050 will now be required to use multiplayer. You can perform an online update to obtain it using the RealFlight Launcher. Contact RealFlight Technical Support if you require assistance updating your software.
RealFlight G5.5 users:
Use the RealFlight Launcher to update your software to version 5.50.034. This is strictly a maintenance update to keep multiplayer working after changes on the server side. No functionality–multiplayer or otherwise–has changed. Contact RealFlight Technical Support if you require assistance updating your software.
