Is FS ready for flight?


Recommended Posts

Hi All!!

Is there any way to check, with any programming language, if a user is all set to fly, ( if the user has already chosen an aircraft and a departure point and is now parked)… I cannot find anything related to that, because even when FS is on any menu, I can get values from FSUIPC, but that doesn’t mean that everything is set..

I hope this is clear enough so I can get an answer, sorry my English.

Well, not really. FSUIPC does flag the case of being in a menu (the one you mention), and there's a "ready to fly" flag which is set when the first flight and scenery and so on has been fully loaded, but FSUIPC cannot predict what the user is then going to do. After loading FS and allowing his default flight to load, he may then go into the menu, change his location, his time, his aircraft, almost anything. I don't know of any way of predicting user intentions, sorry.

The ready to fly flag is at offset 3364 (and is FS2004 only), the menu and dialogue flags are in offset 3365. Please read the notes associated with these, which are listed in the table in the Programmer's Guide document, part of the FSUIPC SDK.

These are about the best I can do.

Regards,

Pete
