Hi guys,

I've no idea of how to play FSX deluxe version as ATC. I'd be trying it for the first time. Frankly speaking I dont even know how to go to ATC mode.

Any tips for the same. Links to specific topics with ATC play would be appreciated!

You have to go to Multiplayer and when you join a server you can choose your role. Either Pilot or ATC.

I went into multiplayer, logged in my gamespy account and selected ATC. The problem is when I open my radar, I see no aircrafts. Ant tutorials for the same guys!? I'm totally confused. I see people joining in the room but dont have any clue what they're upto?!?

Then ask them where they are. 😳

Not everyone is going to start at a location just because you are there.

Firstly have you checked the tutorials section in fsx?
Have you ever listened to the atc in the sim itself or been in a session with someone doing atc.

Its quite simple if you are starting out


I want to be a controler in fsx but a roll box won't show up?

I have FSX Gold which I am led to believe is the Deluxe version with an expansion pack. When I go into multiplier and choose a server there is no option to be a tower controller nor is there when I select, create new server.
