i'm at a loss at why rc would cause follow me to stop working. can you give me any more information? or maybe you can post your problem in the radar contact forum where maybe some others with similar configurations can help you.

do it the math this way
x / 65536 / 65536 * 360
you have to do some conversions
here is my routine to set the plane at the proper lat/long/alt
Public Function set_plane(lat As Single, lon As Single, alt As Single, hdg As Single) As Boolean
Dim x As Long
Dim dwresult As Long
x = FTOM(CLng(alt))
Call FSUIPC_Write(&H574, 4, VarPtr(x), dwresult)
x = lat * 10001750 / 90
Call FSUIPC_Write(&H564, 4, VarPtr(x), dwresult)
x = lon * 65536 * 65536 / 360
Call FSUIPC_Write(&H56C, 4, VarPtr(x), dwresult)
x = hdg * 65536 * 65536 / 360
Call FSUIPC_Write(&H580, 4, VarPtr(x), dwresult)

Call FSUIPC_WriteS(&H8001&, Len(fsuipckey), fsuipckey, dwResult) '
where fsuipckey is a string containing the key (no spaces), concatenated with a null

for the ai aircraft, that data is in the tcas tables. check the documentation for specifics

my vb does unsigned arithmetic :-)
you're probably overflowing the magvar variable
MagVar = MagVar / 65536 * 360
what is the real magnetic variation where you're at? i'm betting that it is really -20, which will yield a number slightly higher than 360
so you will need a routine to take a heading that is larger than 360, and normalize it to a number between 0 and 359

no idea, sorry
Posted May 28, 2006
Function norm360(h As Long) As Long
If h > 360 Then
norm360 = h - 360
ElseIf h = 0 Then
norm360 = 360
ElseIf h < 0 Then
norm360 = h + 360
norm360 = h

here is my code snippet
Public Function Plane_heading() As Single ' degrees Plane's magnetic heading.
Dim dwResult As Long
Call FSUIPC_Read(&H580, 4, VarPtr(x), dwResult)
Plane_heading = norm360((x / 65536 / 65536 * 360) - magvar)
you may have to adjust for the magnetic variation, which is what magvar is (another function, to get the current magnetic variation)
norm360 is a normalize function, which brings all heading to a range of 1-360 degrees

twenty degree magnetic variation would put you within 1 degree of the number you gave me
Posted March 13, 2006
and what was the magnetic variation?
what was your plane heading?
Posted March 11, 2006
i don't know what to say. this is the function i have used in radar contact since v3. it works, because i'm constantly checking the plane heading..
Public Function Plane_heading() As Single
Plane_heading = x / 65536 / 65536 * 360
it's vb6, and the code has worked that way from v3.x through v4.x without a problem.
Plane_heading = x / 65536 / 65536 * 360
Posted March 10, 2006
for plane altitude, i use the following
Call FSUIPC_Read(&H574, 4, VarPtr(x), dwResult) 'meters
Plane_Alt = Mtof(CSng(x))

i had all that typed up, and you beat me to it :-)
one of your negatives, is that rc doesn't interact with the ground ai is patently wrong. if an ai changes in anyway, from getting a clearance, to pushing back, to taxiing, to being told to hold short, or to be told to position and hold, every switch from clearance to ground to tower to departure are all communicated to them (assuming you are on the right frequency to hear the ai chatter)
the pre-recorded chatter has nothing to do with the ai around you, and can be turned off or on, as you like

last monday, i sent an email to the email address on record of all registered users of radar contact. it was an invitation to join a google group, which will be the primary mechanism of communications about how to upgrade to V4, and other special news
if you did not receive it, check your junk mail folder. if you still don't see it, contact me (email@example.com) or rick (firstname.lastname@example.org) about updating your email address.

JDT LLC Announces Radar Contact Version 4 will begin shipping December 10, 2005.
Flight Simulator will now have the best ATC at every airport, every hour, every day.
Memphis, TN, November 11 2005: John Dekker and Doug Thompson report that Radar Contact Version 4 has been released to manufacturing, with an expected general availability of December 10, 2005. Radar Contact, a highly successful Flight Simulator ATC add-on, provides a realistic experience to Flight Simulator enthusiasts, wherever and whenever they fly.
Version 4 offers:
· Interaction with traffic on the ground and in the air around you. Realistic chatter to and from the traffic.
· Internationalization – which means realistic Transition Altitude/Transition Level, proper phraseology outside the United States, more accurate ATC procedures.
· Enroute holds now tied to arrival weather.
· Support for pilot's discretion (PD) descent clearance from cruise to allow descents that are better aligned with those calculated by FMCs/CDUs.
· Centers accurately divided into real world sectors.
· More pilots, more controllers, 109 popular airport names recorded, over 700 carrier names recorded, all center names recorded, all aircraft types recorded.
· More realistic crossing restrictions based on runway in use. Runways chosen based on AI activity.
· More efficient arrival vectors.

what is the value if sim_any when you call the fsuipc_open?
breakpoint there, and hover the variable.
i'm assuming SIM_ANY is defined?
i'm assuming fs is running when you try this button click?
suggest you breakpoint at every fsuipc call, and make sure all your variables contain the right values, and find which call causes the error message
