FS2020 Aircraft Model and ICAO


Recommended Posts

Hi, excuse my english.

I am testing with FS2020 and FSUIPC7 to modify an application that works well with FS9/FSX/P3D.
I want to recover the ICAO and the model of the plane (ex: B738 - Boeing 737-800), but with the offset I used it does not work. With the demo application of the library neither. 
I was searching in Google a list of new offset for FS2020 but I can't find anything.
I attach an example.

Hi Paul,

this is a known issue with the ICAO and Model strings. It has previously been reported in this post: 

To get around this for the time being, I have added the ICAO designator, manufacturer and model (read directly from the aircraft.cfg file) to the following offsets:
    icao_type_designator: 0x0618, 16 bytes (including string terminator)
    icao_manufacturer: 0x09D2, 16 bytes (including string terminator)
    icao_model: 0x0B26, 32 bytes (including string terminator)

However, those offsets won't be populated for all aircraft (see that post for details).

At some point I am planning to replace the language specific strings with the strings from the language pac files, but I've no idea when I will get around to this, its pretty low on my list.
