  1. Thanks everyone! Any idea when this will make it into a release? I want to check with Paul Henty in case he needs to update anything.
  2. Hi John, Thanks for this. We have just started working with the 777, so not sure how easy it will be to check these offsets. We use Paul Henty's FSUIPC .net library, so I'm wondering if he will need to do some work on his end as well.
  3. In an initial test, the CDU data is working. Any idea if other things in the FSUIPC offsets for this aircraft need to be updated? I'm not sure what else was changed in the SDK.
  4. Are the offsets for accessing the CDU the same as in the 747 and 737?
  5. I'll get it and send it over. There are two of us developing the a-on, and it's the other developer that has this aircraft. What is the best way to get the file to you?
  6. Hello, A friend of mine told me that the newest PMDG 777 update now supports CDU screen data, same as the 737 and 747 do. I don't see any reference to this in the latest FSUIPC 6 777 document. Can anyone confirm that this support is in fact in this aircraft and if fSUIPC will support it? We need CDU data for software we are writing. Thanks!
  7. Hi Paul, I think that gets us 90% of the way there. There are two of us developing this project, so I'm not the one directly working on this particular feature. Andy is going to jump in here and let you know if there is anything else we need. Once again, you are awesome!
  8. Hi, This may be out of the scope of what the .net library is meant to do, but thought I would post this here in case anyone has an idea. We're working on integrating Bing Maps into the Talking Flight Monitor accessibility add-on. Initially, this will tell the user what city, country, etc. that the user is flying over. What we would like to do is give the user a virtual "look around" feature. So, for example, provide a key to list what features are coming up in the aircraft's current heading. So if the user is heading south out of Toronto, they might be told the US boarder i
  9. Hi Paul, The latest version I'm seeing from Nuget is 3.1.23. Has 3.1.24 been pushed?
  10. Hi Paul, You are awesome! One question. Am I able to use the ValueChanged property to detect if the value of the offset has changed since the last refresh? I'm guessing maybe not.
  11. Hi Paul, The enum you've provided for the 737 controls has been amazingly helpful. Can we get one for the PMDG 747 controls as well? Obviously, I can code without it, but it would be great to have. Thanks!
  12. Hello, I notice that the PMDG 737 and 747 have CDU screen data support, but the 777 doesn't. At least the documentation doesn't mention it. Are there plans to add the CDU displays to the 777?
  13. Hi all, In the flight sim accessibility add-on we're working on, we're adding a takeoff assistant feature. This would basically lift off the aircraft on a single key press. In the past, we've used other add-ons to do this. What they essentially do is turn on Autopilot, set the vertical speed and altitude during the takeoff role. Obviously, this isn't the proper way to do things. I'm looking for a way to simulate pulling of the stick to lift off the aircraft. I saw the offset at 0bb2 for adjusting the elevator, but not totally sure how to work with it. If I wanted to s
  14. Hi Pete, Thanks for that, but I'm not really sure how to apply that to Paul's .net interface in c#.
  15. Hi Paul, I'm starting the somewhat ambitious project of interfacing the PMDG 737 with my flight sim accessibility add-on. I have a list of all the offsets from the FSUIPC PMDG documentation. I have a few questions: 1. Do you, or anyone for that matter, have a class with the PMDG offsets defined? I'm going to need a lot of them, and would rather not define over 100 offsets if someone has already done it. Long shot, I know. Is there an efficient way of defining a large amount of offsets like this, or just one line per offset like I've always done? 2. Do you have any experienc
  16. I figured it out. I didn't realize that the simconnect services required a registered FSUIPC. As soon as I put my key in, everything worked.

  18. Hello, I just needed to reinstall my entire system. After installing FSX and FSUIPC 4.975A, I can't get interception of simconnect menus to work. I have the line "NewInterceptTextMenu=Yes" in my fsuipc4.ini file in the General section. Here is the log from starting fSX. Note that it says the menu intercept option is off. What am I missing here? ********* FSUIPC4, Version 4.975a (19th May 2020) by Pete Dowson ********* Windows 10 Enterprise 64 Bit reported as Build 19041, Release ID: 2004 (OS 10.0) fsx.exe version = 10.0.62615.0 Reading options from "C:\Program Files
  19. Hi Paul, I added this yesterday and it appears to be working great! Thanks again!
  20. Thanks Paul. I've said this before, but you are awesome! I'm relatively new to coding, so your help has been great. I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but the add-on we're writing is an interface that allows totally blind users to use FSX or p3d. About a year and a half ago, It started off as a way to know the nearest city to your aircraft position, but it's now snowballed into something fairly complex. It's rapidly becoming a completely accessible flight management system. In fact, we've been asked to present at the Toronto Accessible Gaming conference at the end of October.
  21. Hello, I'm wondering if anyone has a code sample for taking a block fuel quantity and automatically distributing the fuel through the tanks. I understand how to use the dll to add fuel to a tank, it's just the calculating of amounts for each tank that has me a bit stuck on how to do this most efficiently. Here's what I want to do: Fill aux and/or tip tanks first if present fill main left and main right next finally fill center tanks with remaining fuel. Any help would be apreciated.
  22. Hi Paul, I'm trying to use the DLL airport facilities from another class and am running into an error. The connection to FSUIPC happens in my main form class. I'm also loading the airport database from that class. I have another class that needs to be able to query the info in the airport database. If I try to access the FSUIPCConnection.AirportDatabase features from the other class, I get the following exception: An unhandled exception of type 'System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException' occurred in mscorlib.dll The given key was not present in the dictionary.
  23. Thanks Paul! This is amazing! We're a little way off from adding this support into our software, but this will make things much easier!
  24. Hi Paul, For a future version of the software I'm writing, people are asking for a way to taxi the aircraft. This would require us to get a list of the taxi ways, which the Makerwys database provides in the t5.csv and t5.bin files. Have you considered adding a database of taxi ways, similar to what you do for runways and airports? When I look at the t5.csv file for the Toronto airport (CYYZ), I notice a ton of taxi ways that are unnamed. The named ones seem to be at the end of the list. Not sure why this is or if this might present a problem. What are your thoughts?
