HOW TO send a text message to the user of FS2004 ?

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I want to write a text message (as ATC control's text for example) to the user of FS2004.

Is there someone to help me.

Using FSUIPC and VB.NET

Thanks

Hello everybody,

I want to write a text message (as ATC control's text for example) to the user of FS2004.

Write the string to offset 3380 using FSUIPC_WriteS, and a code (for delay, scroll, whatever) to 32FA using FSUIPC_Write. Check the Programmer's Guide in the SDK for these offsets.

regarding to this issue: Is it possible for displaying a text message similar to the ATC's window in FS2004 VIA FSUIPC and VB?

Thanks.

Yes, that's exactly what Pete's post told you how to do.

I mean a window looks like where you select which ATC you would like to switch your COM to...

Like the new one in FSUIPC enabled on the front screen? It operates only for multiline messages.

Programs write their 32-character (max) zero terminated title to IPC offset 6D60.

Didnt understood what I need to write into that offset. Any help please?

Thanks.

Only a Window title, if you don't want the Window called FSUIPC Window, or whatever my default is. Isn't "title" clear enough? Sorry if not.

A title is the text in the title bar of a window. This is the (usually blue) bar at the top of a Window containing the program name or something similar.

I just wanna be sure, In the older FSUIPC versions is the same offset were used to write a normal single line at the top of the screen (where FS usually notify for players joinning etc)?

Thanks.

The offsets haven't changed. The message area is 3380 with a control word at 32FA. Please refer to the Programmer's Guide, part of the FSUIPC_SDK.
