Radar Contact

Recommended Posts

I want to build radar, simple one.

I want him to connect to the multiplayer(not VATSIM)(This is, the easy part), and he will show the pilots, like in ordinary radar(Yes, like ASRC).

Is this can be done by programming with FSUIPC?

Not using muliplayer, no. You can get user and AI aircraft positions from FSUIPC, but to use multiplayer you have to program to the multiplayer interface, not FSUIPC. I think there's an official Microsoft SDK for it -- check Microsoft's FS website.

Hello again Pete and all the other friends.

Can anybody send me example in VB for connecting to multiplayer in FS?

I red the SDK supported by MICROSOFT, but the SDK have no examples.

I know DirectPlay, but again, it al seems a little bit foggy to me.

Sorry, it isn't my area. I don't even know DirectPlay. Maybe someone else here can help, but you may like to check other technical (programming) forums too.

I don't think VB has many easy provisions for using the sorts of interfaces FS provides.
