  1. Okay, thanks, Pete. Not a big deal. :D
  2. Pete, Is there any way that you could issue developers of freeware a universal key for testing their apps. I'd like to be able to create an application under a developers license and then get the release key from you upon release of the software. It's okay if this isn't possible, but would be immensely convenient on a development scale. Thanks.
  3. Pete, what do I do to register a free program for accredition? I've sent you an e-mail a week ago, maybe that was the wrong avenue?
  4. Does anyone know if there are issues in Flight Sim that relate to the capturing of incorrect data for the Latitude and Longitude of an aircraft across time zones during flight? I've made a program that measures the distance flown every second by capturing the lat and lon of the aircraft. However, when the aircraft crosses certain time zone boundaries, the distance is grossly over calculated. One example is from KBOS to CYYZ. The distance is roughly 400 nm, but the result is upwards between 3000 and 6000 nm. Any suggestions? My distance calculation algorithm has a +-5% margin of error. This is beyond that.
  5. If I may interject, here, I may be able to provide some insight. First, I'm not sure if you're intending to create a useful product, however, it has promise. Instead of using 360 images, which can seriously degrade performance and memory usage, you might want to get into doing DIB programming. DIB (Device Independent Bitmap) programming would allow you to literally take one image and rotate it in the desired angle. Now, don't get me wrong, we're not talking DirectDraw. DIB is built into windows. I think I'll make a sample project in VB and show you. I'll provide all the code and assets with it and upload it. Catchya later! :D Jim
