    Im looking to create a little flight strip system for a online atc server. what im looking todo is create a little exe or dll what ever FSX uses to talk to programs like Addons pretty sure they are dlls. not sure still learning software programming. And i could really use some help to get a basic understanding on what all i need to research..etc to help me complete this.

    ok. so what im i asking? I want to create a link on the little drop down menu for example. Flight Plan. and then a drop down box will appear that would have create flight plan. when u click on that it would open up a menu kinda like the file a flight plan or something along those lines.. that would have a frame to a website that you could then use the form that i all ready built to be able to create your flight plans with in FSX Multi.

    it seems pretty easy enough todo but not 100% sure on what all is required i have Visual C++ Express 2005. and have been looking at serveral tutiorals but im still kinda confused on it.. So pretty much you would create a dll. and then tell FSX to load that dll on its start up load.. if that is correct then im not to far off on getting fsx to load it once its coded.. And what all do i need as far as learning the dll to create this ? If you guys know of any good website that help explain what all i need to do as far as learning fsx and creating addons for it such as this that would be a big help as well.

    Any help would be awesome thanks

    FSX Doesn't use the "modules" way as has previously been the norm.

    What I'd suggest is you delve into the SDK (included on the FSX Deluxe disk if you haven't already installed it) and take a look at the first step, which I assume you would want to be creating the menu entry.

    There is a very passable menu example in the SDK, including the source code.

    Just doing something simple like this should take you a couple of hours to understand and will give you a far better introduction to how programming in FS works, than any website or tutorial could do.

    If you have any more questions after that, then please come back and we'll try to help as much as we can.

    All the best,

    Alex
