How to setup a session as Captain (updated)

Preparation (none of these things are really needed but they make life a lot easier)

  1. Make sure both pilots are at the same location
  2. Make sure both pilots are in the same aircraft
  3. Make sure both pilots are using the same weather
  4. Make sure both pilots have Crash Detection off.  Not only does this prevents some problems and speeds up the sim, but it is also a very buggy function and most high-end scenery does not contain any crashable objects. So even if it is enabled you can still drive through walls
  5. Get your voice connection working first.


Initialization (all inside the sim)


Note: it is best to do any changes to the settings (like roles) AFTER the connection and session are established!


1) Click to open the Settings MCDU (A318/319/320/321), on the A330 the Settings MCDU is the third MCDU:



2) The Settings MCDU will show, click CONNECTED FLIGHT DECK






4)  when a connection is made it will show CONNECTED. This means you are connected to the server.


5) Click CREATE SESSION. A session ID and Password will now be shown. This is the ONLY information you have to give to your crew members!  If you want to be the First Officer you can select that now (or later).



6) Done! There is now a session running on the server that others can connect to. 
Another topic will explain the few options.
