    FSX GUIDs

    Yeah, I'm using the flt to define the camera location and it works fine on mine. Here's what I'm getting at though. This is what's in my flt file: [Window.1] Order=0 Active=True Undocked=False Maximized=True ScreenUniCoords=0, 0, 8192, 6144 UndocCoords=0, 0, 0, 0...

    FSX GUIDs

    Okay, this may be an insanely ridiculous question but, I don't have an answer so... I'll be ridiculous then! Hehehe!!! So, I want to start a mission from the exterior view. I know how to do this in the flt file by selecting the view GUID and setting rotation, zoom, etc. However I'm...

    Working on missions?

    Maybe... it's not dead after all... Hey all, Been a while since I was on here. Had pretty much junked FS altogether; sold all my CH controls, etc. Then, I re-discovered Jim's FSX Mission Editor. :eek: Okay, I'm back! Hehehe!!! So I'm back working on my original idea. Pretty...

    Working on missions?

    Looks good Jim, That's pretty wild! Mine was actually more of a "behind the scenes" thing. You would setup routes and flight times, etc. These would be stored in a database and when time to fly one, either you would pick one from the list or the program would select one for you. Then...

    Working on missions?

    I'll be the first to post a "no longer working on missions" piece. :( Mine was an addon program that would allow you to develop your own airline and then, take the data within and place it into a generic mission XML so that you would, in effect, generate your own missions. However, FSX has...

    2 Key Events / additional data

    Thanks Bill! I'll give it a whirl. Also, I believe I found the proper format for setting values - it was right in the SDK for making gauges! Don't know how I missed it. :rolleyes:

    2 Key Events / additional data

    I've been trying to do two things with a gauge and so far haven't found where the items go or, how to arrange them properly. If anyone could lend a hand, I'd appreciate it. Okay first, I'm using FSX. One thing I'm trying to do is make a mouse click area to open the cargo door / second exit...

    Default B738 Trim (?)

    Oh my aching back! Sorry for this thread - it was so stupid! I had edited the station points because I was working on making a standardized format: Main Cabin Fore, Main Cabin Mid, etc. Anyway, I had everything shifted forward 1 section so my center of gravity was in the cockpit!! :eek...

    Default B738 Trim (?)

    Ah - HA! I found the culprit! Me. :eek: I forgot that I had done a few mods to the Aircraft.cfg. Nothing in terms of performance and control values but, I did alter the max weight to the actual value of a B738, that being 174,200 pounds (up from the default 155,500). I also had...

    Conditional Event Triggers

    Thanks Patrick. Maybe I'll look into the COM tunings and see if I can do it that way. Yeah, the groundspeed was just an example. I need more specific conditions to trigger it. In addition, I want to trigger the Save Situation event. Haven't even tried that yet but, I'm guessing it merely...

    Conditional Event Triggers

    Yeah, I saw that one but, I thought it was only for accessing the data, not altering it. I'll try playing with that later. Thanks.

    Default B738 Trim (?)

    Um... o-kay. Well, I never did either, until now. I'm just trying to sort this out.

    Default B738 Trim (?)

    I just did another one - after 10k, I set 280 on the speed and manually set 800 FPM. (It was still on 1800) This time, around 16k it started going nuts. The pitch was less than 5%, maybe 3% and it still started. Switching to Mach didn't help either. And once again, without AP was the same...

    Default B738 Trim (?)

    I just did a FRAPS video of it - it's uploading right now so I'll post it when it's done. The thing is, even after disengaging the AP, the controls are WAY too sensitive. I cut all AP holds and the master and took manual control just trying to level out - it never happened. It just kept...

    Default B738 Trim (?)

    Sorry if this is the wrong place but, it's the closest match I could find. I'm having major issues with my default B738 in that, upon nearing FL200, my autopilot goes nuts. Actually, it's not entirely the autopilot - it's the whole stinking aircraft! I use a standard climb profile: 250...

    Station points not properly saving in FLT file

    Got a weird one here: I've made some mods to some default aircraft and added station points that I actually use to store data during missions. By saving the FLT and later parsing the file, I'm able to pull data out without the need for SimConnect. Anyway, I've set the B738 with 50 points...

    Conditional Event Triggers

    Followup: Is there a way to alter the weight of a stationpoint through gauges? I did see one for fuel but, not for a payload point. I think I may be answering my first question (above) already - reviewing some sample scripts but, any input would still be appreciated.

    Conditional Event Triggers

    Okay, I'm completely new to gauge design but, I'm getting a handle on it. However, I'm not sure if what I'm planning is actually feasible within the Gauges SDK. I understand that a MouseClick can be used to trigger a key event but what I want to do is use an evaluation of data to trigger it...

    Mission Gauge

    Okay - a little more specific - use the stationpoint as a boolean variable and use the gauge as a multi-property trigger. So, here's the idea: stationname.50="Seatbelt Sign" Now, build a gauge that has a check for Seatbelt Alert Sign Switch or whatever it's called. If it's true, set this...

    Mission Gauge

    Kind of a screwy title but anyway... As I'm frustrated by the fact that a few of the things I'd like to do in the mission sdk cannot be done, I may have found a solution using a custom gauge in conjunction with the OPT. If anyone else has tried this or has any insights, please chime in. Got...
