The Client plugin has the same features as the stand-alone Client but it runs directly inside the Flight Simulator window. So you don't have to start the Client manually and can easily access it from inside the FS. Currently it's still under development and for Windows there already is a public beta online. Versions for Mac and Linux (X-Plane) will follow soon.
All the Client-Plugin beta-versions are included in the current stable release package.
The Client plugin comes with an installer which makes it easy for everyone to install the plugin. Just select "FS9 plugin", "FSX plugin" or "XP9 plugin" on the component selection page and it installs all the files automatically. If you have a broken FS installation it will ask you to point to the folder where FS9/FSX/XP9 is installed.
- FSUIPC 3.8.2 or higher 
|Show Plugin||Menu -> FSA -> Show Client|
|Hide Plugin||Menu -> FSA -> Hide Client|
To uninstall the FS9 plugin just delete all the files starting with FSAirlines... in your FS9 and FS9/Modules directory.
- FSX with Service Pack 2 installed: 
|Show Plugin||Menu -> Add-Ons -> FSAirlines -> Show Client|
|Hide Plugin||Menu -> Add-Ons -> FSAirlines -> Hide Client|
To uninstall the FSX plugin just delete the FSAirlines folder in your FSX directory.
- X-Plane 9.0 or higher
|Show Plugin||Menu -> Plugins -> FSA -> Show Client|
|Hide Plugin||Menu -> Plugins -> FSA -> Hide Client|
To uninstalle the XP9 plugin just delete all the files starting with FSAirlines... in your XP9 and XP9/Resources/Plugins directory.
During the closed beta stage there already came up some problems which unfortunately couldn't be solved as there were too few people coming up with details. So please report any problems you experience here (with some details about your O/S and FS version).
Known problems are:
- F key doesn't work properly
- Installer process is still running after installation
- FS9 Plugin unable to connect to Website
- Installer creates an empty FSAirlines folder in ../Microsoft Flight Simulator 9/Modules
- During flight the debug output text is not updated
- Sound not working
