    Sim sound on/off

    Sim sound on/off

    As usual, I'm now at the wrong end of the garden path and the shovel is in the shed... OnReceiveOpen: hr = SimConnect_SubscribeToSystemEvent(hSimConnect, EVENT_SOUND_STATE, "Sound"); OnReceiveEvent switch (pEvent->uEventID) { case CLIENT_6HZ: {...

    Starting aircraft in Cold and Dark

    What I have done is to create a read/write routine that writes additional information to the saved flight .fxml file. This additional data contains the full state of the aircraft at that point. Once the FLIGHT_LOADED signal is received via SimConnect, the .fxml read/write routine loads the...

    737-400 A/P graphic appearance?

    If you go that route, the replacement bitmaps must be the same size and colour depth. Some resource hackers can deal with mismatched information but you're better off assuming that the one you are using cannot do this.

    Sim sound on/off

    Rob: that's extracted from Doug's code. I've been talking to him recently and he admits that he's lost interest in flight simulation. He was good enough to pass some of his source code across and of course, there's a lot more available on his website still. I did a skim-read of the xml sound...

    Sim sound on/off

    It's not quite what you think, Rob/Tom. GAUGE_KEY_EVENT_HANDLER FSAPI SoundTrap ( ID32 event, UINT32 evdata, PVOID userdata ) { switch( event ) { case KEY_SOUND_TOGGLE: { SoundIsOn = 1 - SoundIsOn; FSSoundStatus.SetLVar( (double)SoundIsOn ); } break...

    Sim sound on/off

    Is there any way of easily detecting whether the simulator sound is on or off (key Q by default)? I thought there was at one time, but I can't find anything relevant in the simvars.

    So long Bombardier jets..............

    Hmmm. I rewire motorcycles for a hobby and I can spot an overheated wire of any colour at ten paces. [Edit] It seems that white was just popular amongst manufacturers, but a shedload of aircraft now have multicoloured wiring looms.
