FSUIPC Client DLL for .NET - Version 2.0


Recommended Posts

Hi Paul,

You are correct. the sleeping ones does not have any flight number.

Also tried the below code. Still the same

FSUIPCConnection.AITrafficServices.RefreshAITrafficInformation(True, True)

FSUIPCConnection.AITrafficServices.ApplyFilter(True, True, 0, 360, Nothing, Nothing, 1000)

So, there is no way to have flight numbers for those sleeping ones?

Hi, It sounds like you're developing on a 64bit OS and have your Visual Studio project set to target any processor type (the default setting). This is the usual cause of this error. You must set yo

Sure, I've just sent you a PM with a version to try. If anyone else wants this, PM me. Paul

Hi, You use the full size. The dll knows about 0 terminations etc.

I'm pretty sure there is no way to get flight numbers for sleeping planes. They just don't have flight numbers assigned to them by Flight Sim. Certainly FSUIPC is not providing the information so I can only assume it doesn't exist.

The flight number provided by FS for sleeping planes is actually the one embedded in their AIRCRAFT.CFG file, which would be the same for all instances of that aircraft, so it isn't useful and in fact is downright misleading. So FSUIPC suppresses it in that state. The flight number becomes available after the aircraft has submitted its plan and obtained "clearance". That's usually so close to push-back and taxi that effectively you don't often see the flight number until the taxi stage.

Hello Paul, to start with, I am a young French developer which does not speak English a lot, then I use a converter. I work on a Lark 2 which I transform into simulator. It is whom(that) that begins to clamp(stick): I decided to keep(preserve) the instruments in which I put servos or step by step engine. The problem it is the part(party) codes: I do not arrive has to extract the height, the vertical speed and the fuel by serving me as your DLL. It works well for the heading and Eng RPM. These data are sent back(dismissed) on a port(bearing) COM for a card(map) Arduino.

Could you say to me of what you think of it?

In advance thank you.

I invite you has to follow this link or you will see my Alouette 2 : www.mediafx.fr/318

Could you say to me of what you think of it?

The code looks good to me. The only mistake I can see is that turbRpm (0x0896) is only 2 bytes and should therefore be declared as 'short' not 'int'.

private Offset&lt;short&gt; turbRpm = new Offset&lt;short&gt;(0x0896);

I'm not sure if you had a problem you want help with. If you do, please be more specific about what the problem is.

Regards,

Paul

And indeed if, I need help(assistant), I am really a beginner in the coding of software. Thank you for your answer it works. Nevertheless I always stumble over the speed vertical ( 0x02C8 ) and the height. I pedal very very also with my card(map) Arduino, I do not arrive has to have a flow of dated fluids: my servos is jerky, would have you an idea? One thousand excuses to have made a double(doubloon) of this comment while, I had not seen your answer.

Thank you again for your help(assistant). For information, one bets of my simulator will be present at the end of the month in 7 ° World Lounge(Show) of the Simulation in Bourget ( LFPB) with the association FAFZONE.

Nevertheless I always stumble over the speed vertical ( 0x02C8 ) and the height.

Here is the code to read and display the vertical speed and height. I've included the conversions for metres and feet.

Declare the offsets as follows:

		private Offset&lt;int&gt; verticalSpeed = new Offset&lt;int&gt;(0x02C8);
		private Offset&lt;long&gt; altitude = new Offset&lt;long&gt;(0x0570);

Get the values (after the Process()) like this:

			double verticalSpeed_MetresPerSecond = (double)verticalSpeed.Value / 256d;
			double verticalSpeed_FeetPerMinute = (double)verticalSpeed.Value * 60d * 3.28084d / 256d;
			double altitude_Metres = (double)altitude.Value / (65536d * 65536d);
			double altitude_Feet = (double)altitude.Value / (65536d * 65536d) * 3.28084d;

I do not arrive has to have a flow of dated fluids: my servos is jerky, would have you an idea?

The first thing to look at would be the interval for 'timer1'. This sets how often the timer1_Tick() method runs. If you want it smooth you need something like 20 ticks per second. This is an interval of 50ms. So set the timer1.Interval property to 50.

If you used my example application as a starting point, the interval is set to 200 in the method openFSUIPC(). This is only 5 times per second so it will be jerky. This is the line you should change.

Good evening Paul,

Thank you again once for your help so precious.

I followed your indications as for Offset

double verticalSpeed_MetresPerSecond = (double)verticalSpeed.Value / 256d;

double verticalSpeed_FeetPerMinute = (double)verticalSpeed.Value * 60d * 3.28084d / 256d;

double altitude_Metres = (double)altitude.Value / (65536d * 65536d);

double altitude_Feet = (double)altitude.Value / (65536d * 65536d) * 3.28084d;

The first thing to look at would be the interval for 'timer1'. This sets how often the timer1_Tick() method runs. If you want it smooth you need something like 20 ticks per second. This is an interval of 50ms. So set the timer1.Interval property to 50.

If you used my example application as a starting point, the interval is set to 200 in the method openFSUIPC(). This is only 5 times per second so it will be jerky. This is the line you should change.

, and the modifications brought to Timer1 are effective. I confirm you that I leaned on your tuto to make my soft.

I me low now for him(it) 0x036E Turn co-ordinator ball position, it seems to me that it is a soft, but I do not take(bring) out there, I crossed(spent) three hours there today. I do not discourage to arrive there one day...

One question how i can use FSUIPClient for connect with Prepar3d?

I don't think there would be anything special or different about connecting to FSUIPC running inside Pepar3d. It should be the same as connecting to FSUIPC running in FSX or FS9. The FSUIPC interface is the same.

If you've tried to connect to Prepar3d but cannot, then please describe the problem. Are there any error messages?

i mean that when i call open API in c# i should pass it an Enum (FSX ESP ...) this enum is a number (9 for ESP) but for connect to prepar3d i should pass 10 in FSUIPC ... i can pass an integer to your OpenConnection API?

OK I understand.

How do you know Prepar3d is 10? If I look at the current FSUIPC SDK (February 2012) the FSUIPC_User.h file only goes up to ESP (9).

I can only keep my DLL in line with the current SDK. If you can point me to an official source that says Prepar3d = 10 then I'll happy to amend my DLL.

At the moment you can just pass 'Any' for the enum, or just don't pass any parameters into Open() and it will connect.

You cannot pass an integer at the moment, but I'll think about adding that.

Sorry, but i don't often update all the source code itself, only the documentation. I'll update the C one now ready for the next release, but all of the example source stuff is supplied by volunteers. However, the value of 10 for P3D has been defined in the both the "FSUIPC for Programmers" and the "FSUIPC4 Offsets Status" documents for a while now.

I can only keep my DLL in line with the current SDK. If you can point me to an official source that says Prepar3d = 10 then I'll happy to amend my DLL.

As well as the documents mentioned above, the README.TXT included in the SDK says this:

NOTE that not all the parts have been updated for FS2004, FSX or ESP.

The only real change usually is the definition of:

SIM_FS2K4 as number 7 (FS2K2 was 6).

SIM_FSX as number 8

SIM_ESP as number 9

SIM_P3D (for Prepare3D) as number 10.

Sorry if this is not clear enough. I'll change the .h file for C/C++ now.

At least I really doubt there'll ever be any other version numbers to be added! But maybe the programmer of the XPUIPC version for X-Plane uses the "reserved" value (5), which was for X-Plane originally before I decided against it, or maybe he's purloined 9 or 10?

Best Regards

Pete

Uhm in FSUIPC_SDK in readme ... tell Prepar3D it is 10 .... or i wrong ?!?

You're right.

Attached is a new DLL (version 2.3) with the new enum value for Prepar3d. It also has extra overloads on Open() to pass an integer.

You need to copy over your existing DLL and XML files. (Make backups first in case you need to go back).

That's fair enough Pete. It's very clear, I just didn't think to look anywhere other than the .h file for these values.

Now I know where this info is likely to be I'll be able to find it in the future.

Hi guys!,

Are there a way to change aircraft lights across FSUIPC?

I tried the example on FSUIPC Client DLL for .NET. On default aircrafts works well, but when i try with paid aircraft, does not work correctly... i can see how my program try to change the light but shuts down instantly.

Regards!!!

Which 'paid aircraft'? I know that PMDG (with the exception of the NGX which has the lights mapped to different offsets as per the manuals with FSUIPC) and Level-D lights cannot be accessed via standard addressed offsets and assume there will be many others that don't fully integrate themselves like the default aircraft.

I tried with ATR of Flight One, Wilco Airbus and iFly 737 NGX.

As Graham says, some paid aircraft do not use the underlying Flight Sim systems, they write their own. With these kind of aircraft it's not possible to use FSUIPC and therefore my DLL to access the data. You'll need to investigate how to access the lights for each paid aircraft individually. This could be through their own SDK or using L:VARS etc. There are many ways that can be used but each plane is different. With some planes it may not be possible at all.

It's probably best to ask in the support forums of makers of the aircraft.
