FS Modules


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

I have a little question, not about FSUIPC, but about FS Modules.

I developed a few years ago a little module that was able to run on FS2002 and FS2004. I tried to make it work on FSX, but I didn’t succeed.

Do you know if FS2004 modules are compatible with FSX as FS2002 modules were compatible with FS2004?

Best Regards

Tomas

No, they are not. There is no automatic loading system for modules simply by providing them with certain exports and placing them in the Modules folder. To start with there is no Modules folder (the one you might have is created by FSUIPC4's installer specifically for FSUIPC4 files and my other modules). And the old exports aren't used.

You can make modules and have them loaded automatically. You just need the SimConnect SDK and its documentation, which is provided in the FSX Deluxe package, though it has to be installed separately. Look on the DVDs. There's also an update for it already, on the official MS Flight Sim website.

Regards

Pete

But, I cant load my old FS2004 module, some how manually into FSX?

No, not without the usual DLL injection techniques used to invade any program. For those see books like "Programming Applications for Microsoft Windows" by Jeffrey Richter (Chapter 22 applies).

Please see my previous reply.

Pete
