variable list

Hi Arno,
I'm new here and I would like to congratulate for this site.
I would need some help about variables.
Can I find somewhere a good variable list?
I'd like to do a simple flag animation with 8 frames.
The good old "0282 running bit timer" a little bit slow.
Is there any other timer variable that can be used
in a conditional display?
Thanks :wave:

The 5FC variable is now often used, this is also the one that GMax uses for its animations. This variables runs at 18 Hz (hence the name tick18).

If you look in the Fs2000 scenery SDK you will also find some other beacon (timer) variables listed, each running at a slightly different speed then 282. But I think that tick18 will give you the most flexibility.
 
Hi Zoltan,
You can also try 30A, 30C... They need about 6 seconds to come from 0x0000 to 0xFFFF.
Otherwise, htere are two good sources for variables used in FS:
1. scenery SDK for FS2000 (PDF file)
2. FS98 SDK as help file, with listing almost every variable in use.
BTW, there are some variables together, nvfreq, adffreq, cmfreq and there is one which I am curious about: pvfreq. What is this variable used for?

Best regards,

Hi Goran,

pvfreq is if I remember it correct 0C72h and that is the variable I use a lot, it is the NAV2 frequency. I don't really know what the pv stand for though.
