Nearest Airports Fix?

Recommended Posts

I noticed this in the latest module change documentation:

The nearest six airports offsets (0658 ff) are now populated reliably with FSX. (Tested only in FSX+Acceleration in version 4.755: reports awaited for SP2). Currently this improvement does not apply to FSX RTM or SP1, nor ESP or P3D.

Would you be willing to share how the fix was implemented?

I'm playing with some SimConnect code, and seem to have the same issue: I SubscribeToFacilities then re-request with RequestFacilitiesList when a subscribe event is received to figure out what might have been deleted, but the airport at which I'm actually sitting is sometimes not in the list.

It took a lot of hacking into FSX code, and some major help from the FSX Followme author, Daniel van Os. I don't know if he'd be willing to share.

No problem... just a quick questions about it. Is it a pure SimConnect fix with documented APIs, or does it include undocumented calls and/or FSX internal poking?

Just FSX internal poking around, chasing pointers and finding tables.
