Offsets compared to Prepar3d

I am wondering if the basic offsets are the same as those in Prepar3D. For example 0578 for pitch, 057C for roll .

For those offsets which provide values for which we can currently get the exact same value in MSFS (or ones which can be made to seem 100% the same) as for previous versions of FS then, yes, the offsets are the same.

This applies to all of the most used ones, such as those you refer to.

However, there are still currently many things not supported in MSFS which were supported in previous versions. So the offsets list should be read in conjunction with the offsets status document also supplied. That is kept up to date as far as we can work it for each successive MSFS SimConnect update.

It is really best to regard MSFS as still being in Beta development and subject to ongoing changes -- not just to the more visible stuff like scenery and aircraft, but also the internals as dealt with by the likes of FSUIPC.

However, many client FSUIPC applications are already working very well with the currently compatible offsets. So best not to worry about it until you find something you need which seems not to work.

Hello,

I have a small motion system that works with prepar3d (using FSUIPC). It seems for some reason that it is not working with FSUIPC7 and FS2020. Is there maybe a difference in the way it is coded ? Just trying to figure out where I should try to find a solution first.

Thank you,

Griet

Yes... One is for P3D, and one for MSFS, and one a dll and the other an exe. So yes, they are coded differently. They are different products. However, the functionality is the same, wherever possible...

Most offsets should be the same, apart from those not available (or not working). Please see the included offset status spreadsheet (in the downloadable zip) for the latest status of the FSUIPC offsets for MSFS.

Check the status of the offsets you re using in the aforementioned spreadsheet. If in doubt as to whether they are working correctly or not, try logging the values (via the Log -> Offsets... facility).
