SimConnect VideoStream with overlay?

Hey there, a question about the streaming interface supported by SimConnect_BeginVideoStream(). I got it working fine, I can create and control two aircraft carrier PLATS/ILARTS cameras using the PDK, and view the streams in VLC. When I view them in sim, I can also overlay the appropriate text using...

Virtual Cockpit Lighting using PDK IObjectRendererV400::AddLight()

Hi all, We are trying to make a VC lighting system by placing lights dynamically using the PDK. So far we are able to place lights using the IObjectRendererV400::AddLight() function. However, whenever the camera is closer than 1 meter from a light, that light is clipped out of view and disappears. C...

VC camera movement due to accelleration

Hi folks, I have a wee bug report/feature request: The virtual cockpit camera moves due to acceleration in the sim, which is great. However, it does not take into account acceleration/velocity values that I set through SimConnect. So when I'm attached to my custom catapult/holdback/tiedown and the v...

Re: Wave simulation

Hi Beau,

On a related note, would you consider adding an interface to the PDK at some point to query ocean/wave information? Specifically, I'd really like to be able to call Triton's GetHeight() function, it would be extremely useful.

Thanks,
Farley

Re: Losing control of Lvars on Aircraft reload

Hi Doug, Thanks so much for your reply. Unfortunately, I'm extremely reluctant to suspect the calls to register_named_variable(), as they weren't in my original code. I originally was doing it the normal way, i.e. calling register_named_variable() only in the constructor, at the same time as I set t...

Re: Losing control of Lvars on Aircraft reload

No joy. I dumped the strings to a text file before aircraft reload (while it was working normally), and a few seconds after aircraft reload (when it's broken), compared the two files, and according to my hex editor, they are identical on a binary level.

Re: Losing control of Lvars on Aircraft reload

I will try dumping all the string names before and after aircraft load.

Re: Losing control of Lvars on Aircraft reload

Hi, What I'm doing is running a 6hz simconnect update, and in that callback function, doing the following: double oldVals[110]; std::string strings[110]; void On6hzUpdate(){ for (int i = 0; i < 110; i++){ set_named_variable_value(register_named_variable(strings[i].c_str()), oldVals[i]); } } Where th...

Losing control of Lvars on Aircraft reload

Hi, We are building an aircraft carrier for P3Dv3 and 4, and it has static aircraft who's visibility is controlled by L:vars which I'm setting through a DLL, which is being loaded by the sim through dll.xml. The issue I'm having is that it all works fine when the ship is loaded after the airplane, b...

Re: SimConnect_RequestCameraRelative6DOF

Hi Beau, Thanks so much for your response. After going through the PDK docs, it certainly looks like it can provide exactly what I am after. But given that we are for the moment still developing aircraft for FSXA/FSX:SE in parallel, it would be tremendously helpful if there is a way to attach to the...

SimConnect_RequestCameraRelative6DOF

Hi folks, My question is: is it possible to get the camera relative 6DOF data in realtime, like is possible for the "dynamic eyepoint position". Is there a way to get this data delivered automatically every frame? It seems like the only way I've discovered is to keep calling SimConnect_RequestCamera...
