• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

    Push/pull VS knob on A32NX

    Not a clue, ZM. I am only doing "gets" currently. Have a look at DragonLaird's project? https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/using-the-simconnect-sdk-a-simvar-request-handler-and-potential-sdk-replacement/369464 He has a few different projects there that may help you to set the pitch.

    MSFS Are flaps and landing gear max extend speeds in SimVars?

    I am not seeing the two max speeds above in the SimVars. I flew the MSFS longitude for the first time and after landing I had to look up the speed for that jet (210kt for the gear). The reason I am asking is that my gear did not show "100%" in the "GEAR TOTAL PCT EXTENDED". I am suspecting I...

    Hi Norbyx! I was wondering if you could share the entire project that you created, reading the Simvars? Here is a screen print of the results I have gotten with my current program. But it needs to be rewritten properly. Thanks! Best, Robert Hopkins

    MSFS now online sdk documentation

    Get it working, then document it later (if you have the cash in-house). We-don't-need-no-stink'n-documentation! They made the comment in the blog post that announced this documentation, that there would be many updates to the documentation soon.

    MSFS CJ4 - N1% Throttle Position / Amount

    I will head over there and have a look, Roy! Thanks for that pointer (non-NULL). Being that this is a "sim" and they do not have any way of measuring everything like you can in the real-world, sacrifices must or could be made. This may be one of those situations. I haven't tested the N1...

    MSFS CJ4 - N1% Throttle Position / Amount

    I have sent a PM in the MSFS forum to the pilot who has worked with their project. Hopefully, they will take a look at it and let us know what the issue is on that. Thanks, Warp!

    MSFS Simvars quantity

    Thanks for reporting back on that tweak, Norbyx. I may have to use strings in the future. Could I ask you to update your first post with the corrected code, with before and after fixes, please? I am not good at interpreting C# code... Or copy and paste into a new post with a sample fix. Thanks!

    MSFS CJ4 - N1% Throttle Position / Amount

    As I suspected. It looks like the Working Title CJ4 is using the Corrected N1 variable. In the last image (70% Throttle setting) there is a slight rounding difference going on between the two numbers. I am using the correct variables - right? Or is there something else that I should use?

    MSFS CJ4 - N1% Throttle Position / Amount

    Possible tomorrow I can revisit this in the CJ4. I will compare what values both SimVars return in relation to what the dashboard has to say. That will give us a conclusive answer. :)

    My bad, sorry Warp. I was starting to see variables all over the place last night. hr = SimConnect_AddToDataDefinition(hSimConnect, DEFINITION_ID_AP, "TURB ENG CORRECTED N1:1", "percentage"); // N1 POSITION I'm not sure about the CJ4 using corrected or uncorrected, IRL or the MSFS default...

    Create a simple flight data program (Clarion/PureBasic/C/C++/C#/VB#/Python/Yada yada yada)

    Hey ZM! I agree totally about using someone else's code to get started. I used the code that Prepar3DGuy provided in his post: https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/sending-input.449574/#post-872974 I have created the working window I posted at the top and it is working well. Is it...

    MSFS CJ4 - N1% Throttle Position / Amount

    I just double-checked it. Using the "TURB ENG CORRECTED N1:1" matches the output on the dash of the CJ4. The "TURB ENG COMMANDED N1" version is about 1.5 percent less.

    MSFS CJ4 - N1% Throttle Position / Amount

    I figured out the throttle position percentage is not the same thing as N1. Thanks. I am totally new to this airplane stuff. I did just make a flight in the CJ4 and using the CORRECTED value seems to match the displayed percentage. Are you thinking it is the "TURB ENG COMMANDED N1" variable...

    MSFS CJ4 - N1% Throttle Position / Amount

    Thanks for that tidbit, ZenMusic. I didn't see anywhere on the net that 16K scaler represents 16383. I will remember that in/for the future. But, you helped me to look outside of the forest... Those Dang Trees! The number I am looking for is: "TURB ENG CORRECTED N1:1". That SimVar is...

    MSFS CJ4 - N1% Throttle Position / Amount

    I missed that the SimVarWatcher, "SimVarTokens" has the unit value of "percent scaler 16k" for the "GENERAL ENG THROTTLE LEVER POSITION:1" variable. So, after Googling for "percent scaler 16k" I come up with nothing on that topic. Doing simple math against the return value, between what is...

    MSFS CJ4 - N1% Throttle Position / Amount

    Currently, I am using the "GENERAL ENG THROTTLE LEVER POSITION:1" variable to get the amount of throttle being used in the CJ4 but the SimConnect values are different than what is displayed in the cockpit. The CJ4 is showing 77.1 in the cockpit (Working-Title-Mod) and the value I am getting...

    I was wondering about that myself since the SimWatcher program does not have the value of "String" as a unit value. Kewl! Thanks, Warpped!

    Thanks for the advice on the dll not being needed, WarpD. I have not gotten to the stage of loading it on a different machine to debug my work yet. It has been a very long time since I worked with .lib/.dll files. :) ChopperAddict: If you are coding for MSFS then the SimConnect.lib can be found...

    Create a simple flight data program (Clarion/PureBasic/C/C++/C#/VB#/Python/Yada yada yada)

    Is the SimConnect.lib/SimConnect.dll file(s) located in the destination folder that your .exe resides in? Either debug or release version? I am new to this "VS stuff" so take my comment with a pinch of salt. I almost have my version of the screen above coded in C/C++ and will show it here soon...
