Aircraft Name - Is there an offset?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

For HomeFLY, my project that uses FSUIPC, I would like to know if it is possible to catch the aircraft type (Boeing 737-300, Airbus A320-200,...) for all FS versions (FS98,2000,2002)... I've found an offset, but it seems only to work with FS2002.

If this isn't possible, would it be possible to catch the aircraft's name (also in all FS versions).

Thanks!

The name you are referring to is presumably the ATC name and type. The reason this doesn't apply to FS2000 or FS98 is that the built in ATC was only introduced in FS2002. This should be applicable to FS9 as well.

For FS2000 and FS2002 there's also:

3C00 Pathname of the current AIR file

3D00 Name of the current aircraft (from the “title” parameter in the AIRCRAFT.CFG file)

From which you may be able to derive what you want, ven if you have to read the files yourself.

There's no way FSUIPC is ever going to provide anything extra for FS98, which precedes its development start. It only was made to run on FS98 so I could use the IPC logging to work out how the FS98 interface worked and maintain is as a subset for application compatibility.

As FS develops, so will the interface I provide, but I am not about to try to simulate new facilities in previous versions of FS.
