FS2 Network server

www.fishsim.net/fsserve.zip 1.07e 76 Kb

The fishing simulator 2 network server allows you to run matches or funfish sessions of a TCP/IP network. Please note, even though the Internet uses TCP/IP and the server and fishsim will work on this, it is not a supported combination due to the erratic nature of connections on the Internet.

This addon will place both the standard ( fsserv.exe ) and the debug server ( fsservedbg.exe ) into the fishing simulator 2 folder, always virus check these files after importing this addon and before executing either file. Also, this addon will replace your existing server.ini file, so, if you have setttings in there you need to keep, please back this file up before importing.

Downloading and importing add-on's from the Internet

To download and import addons from the Internet normally requires that you have a program to "unzip" files. Files available for download on the Internet are commonly "zipped", in English, this means they are "squashed" to make them as small as possible, to reduce download times. You will need a program to unzip these files on your computer after you have downloaded them, Winzip is a good choice here and available for everyone to use.

After downloading an addon you must extract the files to the fishing simulator 2 folder on your computer. This is the place you installed the game to ( probably c:\program files\fishsim2 ), after doing that, when you run fishing simulator, press the Options button on the main menu, then click the Advanced tab, then click the Import addon button. You will then see a list of addons available to import in JR2 files, click on the addon you want to import, then confirm you want to do it, and that's it.

This is a very brief description of downloading and importing addons, however, Derek Shaw has written a more detailed page on the process. Click here to view it
