Get the IP address from Teamspeak and use JoinFs to connect to the display.

Pre-event Preparation In the days before the event you’ll need to do some preparation:
  1. Make sure you have JoinFS installed and know how to use it (join a practice session for one of the teams if you want to try it out).
  2. Go to This Page and download the following aircraft:
    1. Spectator and chair (for spectators)
    2. Tigers display aircraft (install smoke files as instructed in the download)
    3. CHIPS display aircraft (install smoke files as instructed in the download)
    4. CATS display aircraft (install smoke files as instructed in the download)
    5. 2-4-CIX SPIT
    6. 2-4-CIX HURI
    7. 2-4-CIX LANC
    8. 2-4-CIX B17
    9. 2-4-CIX P51
  3. Start FSX/P3D and get JoinFS to “scan for models”. Then you should see the correct aircraft.
Weather Use the JoinFS facility to take the weather from Peter Memmott.
Peter will set the weather to nil wind and clear skies.
(View - Aircraft - click on Peter's entry on the list, then click on the "copy weather" button.)

Spectator spawning, positioning, and connecting to JoinFS

Before the Display night

It is recommended that members set up their systems before the date of the display, to ensure it all works as intended. To do this: -
  1. Ensure you have downloaded and installed the club set of display aircraft.
  2. Spawn off-line at "Sherburn-in-Elmet" EGCJ.
  3. Taxi to a position roughly mid point of the triangle bounded by the three runways. (Best viewing point is about the mid point of 10/28, and about halfway back to the apex of 06/24 and 01/19).
  4. Once there switch off the engine, then change your "aircraft" to the "Spectator's Chair" to get the best all-round visability.
  5. "Save" this flight. (Call it something obvious like "Display".)
  6. Load JoinFS - this will tell you if your copy needs updating.
  7. Within "JoinFS" perform a "Scan for Models" to ensure that you will see the correct aircraft and liveries.
  8. Ensure you can connect to the "CIX Hub" in JoinFS- Any difficulties PM Max Symons and/or Peter Memmott as a matter of urgency!!!!
  9. Close down and wait for the night of the display.

Spectator spawning, positioning, and connecting to JoinFS
