Re: Speed up joining multiplayer or auto-join directly (cmd line?)

Hi jgrose, There are command line switches that are specific to multiplayer as well as the ability to set up custom config files. In the "Prepar3D SDK" article in the Learning Center you will see a section for Command Line Switches. There are a few different command line switches for multiplayer. In...

Re: XtoMdl error P3d 4.5 HF1 SDK

Hi jabloomf1230,

How are you running XtoMDL? Are you compiling the MDL during export from 3dsMax or running it through command line?

Usually an error like that would mean that XtoMDL.exe couldn't load the SlimDX.dll. Can you double check that both files are in the same directory?

Thanks.

Re: PDK Sound Service Instance -> IsPlaying() Function

Hello, I am not consistently seeing IsPlaying() return E_FAIL, however I do see it return E_FAIL if I call Play() once and then change sound settings (such as changing playback device or changing volume for a specific category). If I do not make any sound changes IsPlaying() continues to return S_FA...

Re: PDK Sound Service Instance -> IsPlaying() Function

Hi flyboy7798,

Does the first time calling IsPlaying() return S_FALSE? Is it only the second time IsPlaying() returns E_FAIL? Could you provide a code snippet showing how you are listening to IsPlaying() and then calling Play()?

Thanks.

Re: No cockpit sounds

Hi liorsh2005,

Which version of Prepar3D are you using? Can you ensure that all sound categories are enabled under Settings > Options > Sound? Also, which aircraft are you using?

Thanks.

Hi Prepar3DGuy,

Unfortunately the null zone and sensitivity values are not currently available through the PDK or any other SDK interface.

Re: radio comms not working in MP sessions p3d v4.4

Hello,

The multiplayer COM voice communication should be working correctly with the latest release (v4.5). Please let us know if you still see issues.

Thank you.

Re: On screen text display in VR

You could try casting the variable in your printf to double* and then dereference it:
case REQUEST_DATA:
printf("\nData request returned: %f\n", *(double*)pObjData->dwData);
break;

Re: On screen text display in VR

Hi MicMac44, Do you receive any SimConnect exceptions? When you say you aren't being returned the value of *testVar, do you mean the value is returned but incorrect? One thing to point out is that you are calling sizeof(testVar) , this will return the size of a pointer. In this case, both the pointe...

Re: PBR Materials Fail to Load/Render in 3dsMax (v4.5 SDK)

Hi DavideP3D, The issue is that the PBR shader's file path was saved out with the scene. With the update to v4.5 the SDK path has been changed as well as the shader's location. As a work around you can add "External File" directories to 3dsMax which should allow the shaders to be found: 1. In 3dsMax...

Re: [Bug] v4.4 MP Host Crashes When a Player Disconnects

Hi dexton, Does the host crash with the same setup when not using the multiplayer command line options? Instead of using the -fxml switch, have you tried using the -mp switch to specify the scenario location? Are you using shared cockpit or do you have avatar mode enabled on either machine? If so, i...

Re: P3D v4.4 multiplayer

Hi CHUSTADT, This is currently the behavior in multiplayer. Joining players (clients) must join near the host, at an airport near the host, or at an airport of their choice (if the host allows this). If you wanted clients to be able to join at other locations (such as in a river), one option would b...

Re: On screen text display in VR

Hi MicMac, A PDK plugin is capable of creating a SimConnect instance, however this shouldn't be necessary. You can use the PDK's ISimObjectManager and IBaseObject interfaces to get data from the user object. You first need to QueryService the PDK to get the ISimObjectManager. Once you have the ISimO...
