FSUIPC C# Altitude Problem

Recommended Posts


I'm currently using Phenty's C# DLL.

I'm currently designing a website whereby it uploads the flight's statistics (heading, IAS, lat/long, altitude,etc) to my server.

So far, I've got everything working perfectly except from the Altitude.

Here is a snippet of code from the application: (C# CODE)

Offset agl = new Offset(0x0570);
string altitude = agl.Value.ToString();

Here is a snippet of code from the server: (PHP CODE)

 $altitude = $altitude * (65536.0 * 65536.0) * 3.28084;

My FS altitude currently shows: 2843FT

My server-side altitude shows: 6.56168FT

Could you please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

If needed, I'll start the IPC logging but I wouldn't assume it is required for this type of 'problem'

The altitude is stored in FSUIPC as an 8-byte integer, not a double so you need to declare the offset as a long:

Offset agl = new Offset(0x0570);

To convert this to a feet you need to divide by (65536.0 * 65536.0) and then multiply by 3.28084 for feet.

So your PHP should probably look more like this:

 $altitude = $altitude / (65536.0 * 65536.0) * 3.28084;

See if that works...
