Panning the VC w/ FSUIPC and VB6?


Recommended Posts

I am stuck trying to find the offsets and/or method to pan the view in virtual cockpit mode in FS9.

I can change the view in 45 degree increments via 3126 from the Developer's kit guide, but I would like to mimic the functionality of a hat switch, for example, in the smooth panning of the virtual cockpit.

Either an offset to send a fake joystick button to the FS, or direct access to the angle of the view in the VC...

This is my attempt to program something similiar to the ActiveCamera pan with mouse function and will hopefully be a download for a poor-man's head-tracking device....

Any ideas?

Use the very same controls as used by joystick hats. Send them to documented offset 3110. The control numbers are listed in the FS2004 controls document supplied with FSUIPC.
