FSHost Server Status

How to use the Kneeboard page in FS2004

If you have FS2004, you can use the Kneeboard to show any HTML page. This FSHost server has a special page that's formatted to fit in the Kneeboard window, to show the current status of all pilots. (If you have FS2002, I'm afraid you can't use this feature)

To setup the Kneeboard, edit the file "kneeboard_keys.htm" in your FS2004 Aircraft directory with a text editor such as Notepad. (Usually this is in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft") Add the following lines to the file, just below the 3rd line that contains "</head>":

<form>
Enter URL: <input type=text size=30 name=url value="http://">
<input type=button value=Submit onClick="location.href = this.form.url.value;">
</form>
Then in FS2004, open the Kneeboard by pressing F10. Then use your mouse to click the "A" button in that window. That will bring up the "Key Commands" page you just edited. Enter the web address of this server, which happens to be: "http://66.208.223.140:83" Then click Submit, and it should load the Server Status page for this FSHost server. You can then click the "Kneeboard" link at the top of that page and it will load the special page formatted to fit in the Kneeboard.

If you want to see what the Kneeboard looks like before loading it in FS2004, you can view it here. But keep in mind that although the text may look too small, it'll look correct when you view it in the Kneeboard.

Enjoy!
