FDE GUI App

Dear All,

We have compiled a GUI and a DLL (x64 P3D) so you can manipulate the FDE parameters on the fly:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/e7uzgds0kwvwkss/SimInFDE44.zip?dl=1

Please note this is an alpha GUI for you to test. Unzip the exe and the DLL to the P3D root. Then use the dll.xml and place it in the %programdata%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\ folder.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks!

Edit: Updated for P3D V4.4. This is a trial build while we build some more functionality, it expires at the end of January. Cheers!

Hi fs1!
Thank you for this example of SimIn usage and capabilities demonstration.
Can you explain what mathematical equations are used with this constants and tables of air file?

During testing when I pressed "Save Data" there is an error window with "Sim is not running". I'm using Prepar3D v4.0.28.21686. When I run Prepar3D.exe with Administrator rules all works fine.
Playing with GUI I accidentally spoiled default cub's data. Can you add "back-up" button or "undo"/"redo" operations.

According to the Prepar3D SDK for Add-on Packages I suggest to change dll.xml file to the add-on.xml with the next contents and place all files inside SimInFDE folder to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons.

XML:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="3,3" id="add-on">
    <AddOn.Name>SimInFDE</AddOn.Name>
    <AddOn.Description>Example of SimIn SDK for FDE parameters tuning using GUI.</AddOn.Description>
    <AddOn.Component>
        <Category>DLL</Category>
        <Path>SimInApp.dll</Path>
        <DLLType>PDK</DLLType>
        <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName>
        <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName>
    </AddOn.Component>
</SimBase.Document>

Here you have the maths on the FDE

This is a simple GUI. We are doing a full functional GUI, so things like Re-Do and so on may be available.
 
While using the addon XML file is a good idea, DO NOT place all files in Documents. Just stop with that insanity. The <PATH> entry can be fully qualified which means the software can be installed in the proper location, not in a document folder.
