  1. Just today i read this strange message. Lucien, Follow this: 1. You should sign in and Not stay behind a Guest Name 2. Here, there is no Nicolas ... 3. learn to digit the right way Have a good day
  2. > Settings/Realism page. (Messages) < i mean then 'Realism' configuration you find p.e. within the FSX configuration menu. I don't know if it is including the Door messages. If you follow the Link above you can exclude it. Not easy but possible with a Hex-Editor or dll-debugger. Maybe you find someone near to you that can help you. Always make a Backup of the original file. Raimund .
  3. Settings/Realism page. (Messages) Didn't Try it. Not sure if it is possible. You should search with the word "disable ....." http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?212169-Hide-exit-closing-opening-text&p=1450099#post1450099 Raimund .
  4. Maybe it can be of help. My post is here and explaning in details how read and set data with the PMDG 737 + 777 using Simconnect and a transformed .h file x VB.net. Raimund .
  5. You must copy the original "Runways.txt" file that is created when you run "MakeRunways" > "makerwys.exe" (by Pete Dowson) into your actual working Folder where RwyLength is installed. (this Runways.txt file is about 100Mb) Install / unzip where you like. Create a separate Folder. This program is extracting: ICAO, country, City, Apt-name ..... Rwy-ID, length in ft, le in meter, le in nautic miles. Click on [ Start ] (creating a new txt-file you can use and extract data in case you need this data for your own applications) Later on, selecting the new created (shorter
  6. Try this one: Dim FsVersion As Offset(Of Short) = New FSUIPC.Offset(Of Short)(&H3308) Dim iShort As Short = FsVersion.Value Select Case iShort Case 1 Me.txtFsVersion.Text = "FS98" Case 2 Me.txtFsVersion.Text = "FS2000" Case 3 Me.txtFsVersion.Text = "CFS2" Case 4 Me.txtFsVersion.Text = "CFS1" Case 5 Me.txtFsVersion.Text = "Fly!"
  7. You can read and write offsets for the PMDG-777 with the Pmdg777 SDK. When coding with VB.net you can include the translated SDK (x VB.net) for the Pmdg777. You read and set all those values. You need the Microsoft.FlightSimulator.Simconnect.dll and the PMDG_777X_SDK.h > in your VB.net "Release" Folder. Just read this Post > By the way: you can use the FSX Simconnect.dll for reading and setting the Spoiler "Tick number" and the "Spoiler position value". There is no problem with using different sistems together. The route distance "from" > "to" can be calcu
  8. """ calculate the distance from a aircraft position and track to a runway """ What do you mean exactly ? Just on Ground or also from Aircraft-Air position to any Rwy Center-Start-Position. Maybe i can help you. Given Lat/Lon it is easy to calculate. Raimund .
  9. Hi Fred, "At Landing" or "at/during Landing Approach". There is a difference. You get the V/S data while approaching and Landing via FSUIPC as well as the ALT value and Speed. What you are looking for is your personal idea i don't think you will find a ready code for it. You need V/S, ALT and Speed values as well as the distance to the runway and the Rwy-ALT for a acceptable result to save. The sequence of your Data within your DB is important. Raimund .
  10. For creating a RAAS system maybe this small program i enclose could be of help. Program "RwyLength.rar" enclosed. You must copy the original "Runways.txt" file that is created when you run "MakeRunways" > "makerwys.ex" (by Pete Dowson) into your actual working Folder where RwyLength is installed. (Runway.txt file is 100MB) This program is extracting: ICAO, country, City, Apt-name ..... Rwy-ID, length in ft, le in meter, le in nautic miles. creating a new txt-file you can use and extract data. regards Raimund
  11. Hi, there are 2 posts within this page. PMDG offsets + Offsets PMDG. I think there you find the solution. The Pmdg SDK is including the over head panel so you can access any Button + Switches. You can use Simconnect together with FSUipc. Raimund .
  12. The NGX_SDK including the CDU data will be translated like the previous NGX_SDK for direct access. You can't modify the enclosed SDK Class vor VB.net; It must be rewritten including the CDU data. The CDU part is a different structure using: 14 lines with 24 characters. Symbol, Color and Attributes. Total data is 1008 bites. The CDU Text can then be extracted. Raimund .
  13. I don't have this latest Pmdg SDK file. My Sdk file i translated for Vb.net with a copy of the Ngx-Sdk and then included within a program. I'm not using the NGX but the Pmdg_777. Read my message about it. Pls. just state/write the SDK lines you are interested in. Raimund
  14. Hi, i think what you are look for is a bit more complicated. the right approach is quite different. 1) you need a Class containing the PMDG SDK "translation" for VB.net (Form5.vb + SDK2.vb x NGX) (Form6.vb. + SDK.vb x 777) 2) you need a Class/Form connecting to FSX "Microsoft.FlightSimulator.SimConnect" reading all VAR 3)the Form is including Sub proc's you can call from any other Form. (return val by global var is better then a Function) I'm using this forms with my Programs. You can even fly the PMD-NGX in automatic with your program. With your Main
  15. Your first post is quite different and anyone can read it. If english is your mother Language please improve. Language is the only mean for comunicating. http://forum.simflight.com/forum/173-intrasystems-support-forum/ Try this one and revert. http://forum.simflight.com/topic/79834-mouseclicks-keyboard-keys-automatic-execution/#entry483607 Raimund .
  16. Just anwering to your "First" Post (before editing) i would like to point out that there are also several "Freeware" programs and Downloads. Just read, non scrolling, and you find them. Intrasystem .
  17. You can't. With a multiscreen system there are possibilities for "not Pop-up" windows, but still quite "Tricky". .
  18. The MouseClicks Test Program is ready for download. You can download here: (x avoiding web-scanning pls. use the Pwd) http://www.intrasystem.it/FSX/TestMouseClicks/MouseClicks.rar User: Test Pwd: MouseClicks54321 The MouseClicks Manual: http://www.intrasystem.it/FSX/MouseClicks_Manual.zip Intrasystem .
  19. The MouseClicks MANUAL is ready for download. You can download here: http://www.intrasystem.it/FSX/MouseClicks_Manual.zip Pls. read the 1. page and revert if interested. Intrasystem .
  20. Have a look at the Simcon Software. The Frequency Input is very easy and can be exchanged, Adf, Vor, Xpn, Com. Nav Freq con be stored in Nav1 Stby, Nav2 + Nav2 Stby and passed do Nav1. The Pilot Interface is a special feature. There is a very particular Radar you would appreciate as real Pilot. Simcon is including 5 different automatic Fly-to Functions + the virtual Runway creating always a virtual Wpt at 20nm aligned with any Rwy (Sea, Air, Ground). Simcon is also connecting you to a real world Airport Charts and Information Centre. I'm using the Flight1 ATR - also using with th
  21. First of all, with MouseClicks you can solve many common problems. Just try with a Lua-Script to Start or Close Engines for the PMDG NGX 737 plane. or try to open the Terrain Map + Terrain Height on the ND Instrument in automatic. With MouseClicks you can do it. It is left to your necessity and fantasy. With one Joy-Button or KBD-Key you execute what a human would do. In fact you can select any position of any single or multi_switch. This example is switching: - from any actual view into the Cockpit - selecting the Overhead Panel + executing all single movements a Pilot would do.
  22. This Forum is reserved for Simcon and CockpitStatus users only. I suggest you switch to the FSUIPC Forum led by the FSuipc Author Pete Dowson. regards, .
  23. Maybe it can help you: http://forums.bostonvirtualatc.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4950 Raimund
  24. Hi Paul, I did not use your DLL for calculating as i'm only using the Mathe Formulas by Ed Williams for all calculations. I noticed the difference using your FSUIPCClientExample.VB that is using your DLL. Sitting at LOWG your example program is calculating distance + Bearing to EGLL. As far as the Bearing is concerned (296 / 299) the difference is the MagVariation, depending on what we want as result. In fact, as example, the RWY-Heading(35C) of LOWG is 349 considering the MagVariation or 346(less MagV). There is a "lateral deviation formula" that could be very useful for
  25. Hi, i would like to ask you why there is a difference, for example with distances and Bearing, between your DLL functions you are using with the FSUIPCClientExample and the real world Mathe calculation that is giving the right result. Aircraft world position Lat/Lon from FSUipc offsets (single offsets) or with Simconnect Destination Lat/Lon from a external dBase Example Difference: LOWG to EGLL Distance in nm = 677 - Km = 1255 - BRG 296° initial Your FS-DLL calculation is: Distance in nm = 732 - Km = 1356 - BRG 289° initial I checked my data with some Web distance calculators th
