    Object placing by code in sim

    Thank you Paul, appreciate it. By the way, it was my mistake about vb. I used visual studio 2010 for the recorder, the language is visual basic.
  2. Hi, i just would like to know if it's possible to place objects into some specific coordinates of the sim by using codes. Here is what i am up to : We have built a helicopter virtual airline which uses a flight recorder coded by vb and the program runs on Paul's marvellous client. When the program is run, i want it place an object such as a car, a human, a burning ship etc. to a coordinate, the limits specified on a database, so that the helicopter pilot is given a mission to locate the burning ship, or land within the proximity of the car, human etc. I hope i am clear enough about what we want to create. Has anyone tried something like that? Or anybody just light me up with a very small idea, and i will go after it by myself. Currently, our recorder program can create random missions to go from some airport to another, or best, it tells you to land at a town or village which doesnt have any airports, the landing points are taken from a large database of our website. So we are pursuing a different adventure. I will appreciate any help.

    vb.net detect value changes

    Yes sir, it seems so.

    vb.net detect value changes

    I will ask another question. Lets say we want to check pilots' actions during their flights and seatbelt sign is one of the check items. But the problem with the seatbelt offsets is many different aircraft have different offsets for seatbelt usage. For example, standart seatbelt offset is 341D, pmdg ngx 738 offset is 649F, pmdg 777 ofset is 647B, pmdg 747 offset is 6C2B. And probably other addons are using different offset values also. Is there any way to detect which offset is activated when some switch is turned on or off?

    Removeatc=yes with fsuipc4

    Sir, I received a CTD due to atc.dll on p3dv4 ( I got this 2 times on the same route on nearly the same place. Aircraft was pmdg 737-800, active sky p4 was being used. No extra add ons were online at the moment of the CTD. All software are licenced and registered. After the first CTD I tried to put "removeatc=yes line" in the .ini file under the [General] section but it didnt work.

    ATC.DLL crash

    Hi Pete, this is an old topic but i thought you might help me. My p3dv4 CTDs the second time due to atc.dll error at the same place at the same flight route. Do you think it's about the radio frequency? And also, is there a fix for it? My p3d version is

    Prevent Refueling Mid-Flight

    Perhaps you made it but just to show a way to other people.. my application collects data from the aircraft 10 times per second. On every collect run, I calculate the total fuel on board, put the calculated value on a variable called "currentfuel". I also have another variable "lastfuel" which is assigned the amount of total fuel in the very beginning. If currentfuel > lastfuel then.... do whatever... else lastfuel=currentfuel. My app disqualifies the flight :)

    Failure Offsets

    Sir, i managed to put engine fail function on our virtual airline application. It is activated on a random base during the take off or approach, which is the simulation of a birdstrike. Now i am trying to find a way to apply "tire blow" event if the pilot lands with or higher than a specific vertical speed. Is it possible via FSUIPC?

    PMDG 777 offsets

    Pete, somebody with PMDG 777 on p3d v4 has just reported me that my virtual airline's recorder is sensing CRASH situation although there is no crash situation on the sim. (Detect crash option of the sim is also OFF). The recorder gets the data via Dim tCrash As Offset(Of UShort) = New FSUIPC.Offset(Of UShort)(&H840) code by using FSUIPCclient.dll I asked him if the FSUIPC is 5.103b or not. Waiting for his answer.

    FSUIPC.bas for VB2008 ?

    Ehm.. ah ok, you are right, next time I'll be careful about posting on related sub forum, thanks for the quick answer anyway.

    FSUIPC.bas for VB2008 ?

    Paul, I used your marvellous dll for my va's application and we are still testing the app, I have one question: I get about 40 offset values 10 times a second (thread sleep time is 100 within a do-loop process), I am using a powerful laptop and I dont feel any FPS drop, but somebody with a weak configuration reported that he loses FPS downto 1-2 from 15-20 when he starts the application. The program has 5 threads in total one of which is data picker from FSUIPC. There was only one guy who reported that. Do you think that connection via fsuipcclient can make such a big drop on FPS ?

    Connection at Main Screen

    Yes sir, H3365 or H264 worked perfectly.
  13. Gentlemen, I made a lot of progress on my VB app by marvellous fsuipc client and Mr Dowson's harsh recommendations (Just kidding sir, you helped me a lot) and started receiving all of my intended offsets at some specific conditions, but something puzzles me.. When you start the fsx for the first time, while you are on the main screen, I mean before you actually get in the cockpit, we can limit the usage of the application by the help of some data lik the coordinates arriving as 0, airport name as blank etc. But, if you start a flight and then go back to the fsx main screen, fsx keeps sending data as if you are still in the cockpit. Is there any special technique you can advice me to find out if the sim is on main menu or not? I say again, it behaves differently depending on when you reached the main screen. Gentlemen, I downloaded the fsuipcclient 2.4 but the user manual inside the zip belongs to 2.0. I made hundreds of google search to get the latest manual but I couldnt find it. Yesterday I learnt the excellent payloadservices codes from this forum, so I need to ask if there is a similar code for fuel services. Although I am able to calculate the amount of fuel by looking at all tanks, I feel there like is an easier way by some class. Is there ?
  14. Worked like a charm thank you very much.

    FSX Problem!

    I do it like this... Dim tSimrate As Offset(Of Short) = New FSUIPC.Offset(Of Short)(&HC1A) If tSimrate.Value = 256 Then SimRate1 = True Else SimRate1 = False But be aware that, I just wanna know if the pilot is using x1 simrate or not, I don't care if he increases or decreases the sim rate, I just care if he flies normally or not!
