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:
You can also create custome A:Vars:
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...
Although the fix is mostly about SimDirector, what interests me is that they claim to have fixed SimConnect_WeatherRequestCloudState.
I'm trying to use a gauge to create a client data area on a multiplayer server instance of SimConnect.
The simconnect.log file on the server tells me that the gauge is connecting to SimConnect. It is creating the client data area. However, when I try to set a value in the client data area...
I thought I would extricate us from the other thread...
I think you will find the best example available is the Cabin Comfort module in the SDK. This one is not a gauge, but a module loaded through dll.xml.
The FS gauge structure is so heavily based on macros that for simple gauges, an OOP...
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...
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.
Edit: I have submitted the file for approval here as well.
