    P3D v4 Genuine custom events

    I'm throwing this out there because I know over the years there has been interest expressed. LM seems to have realized this. With the PDK, you are now able to create custom K:Events. Yes, I'm talking about syntax like this: 3.14159 (>K:SetPi) You can also create custome A:Vars: (A:GetPi...

    P3D v4 64 bit terrain following

    Here is my first attempt. It does not use a sim object. The PDK allows the retrieval of elevation information at a point specified by the programmer. All you'll have to do here is populate the L:Vars for each point to retrieve and then read the results...

    Gaugesound.dll - anyone here still using it? I've built a knock-off that has a few more features (including volume and pan control) if anyone would like to try it out. Doug

    In response to a few requests received, I broke down and created the most basic of websites to provide access to some of the gauges I have done. You can find it here: As I say, not much to it, just a list of files. I suspect that most people here have most of these...

    Arne Bartels' Traffic Radar XML

    I was able to get Arne's source code re-arranged to compile and load for FSX. I have uploaded the revised package to Avsim. It will presumably be available in the next 24 hours or so. Doug Edit: I have submitted the file for approval here as well.

    Sound for C++ Gauges

    Also posted over at Avsim... Now that I have created the thing, is there any interest in a gauge that will implement sounds for other C++ gauges? Doug
