Re: Eyepoint Data P:var lagging

That is one suggestion worth trying, thanks Oliver! Still, I'd like to know whether the P:vars do lag indeed. In my experience, the lag can have multiple causes. One is the FPS setting. Unlimited FPS often lead to lags and stuttering when your code is not clocked at exactly the same update rate. Or...

Re: Eyepoint Data P:var lagging

Hello, since you have posted this in the SimConnect section, a question comes to mind: why are you not using the View Functions provided by the API? For example, "RequestCameraRelative6DOF" will give you the x/y/z/p/b/h offsets relative to the eyepoint of the aircraft. Best regards Oliver Binder Lor...

Re: CameraZoomIn/Out

Hey, using CameraZoomIn() and CameraZoomOut() has no effect on the Camera in the Sim. The Zoom Level remains 1, when using the camera manager within the Sim i was able to Zoom in and out. The camera i tried to Zoom in/out was a self created oberser using SimConnect. Hi, to my best knowledge, an Obs...

Re: Add-ons.cfg not created initially with 4.5HF1 Native

Hi, thanks for the heads up, I wasn't aware that this is no longer happening. I will have to take that into account with P4AO. Why are there two add-ons.cfg files? Because Windows is an operating system that manages multiple user accounts on the same computer. Addons that you install for your user a...

Re: scenery.cfg file does not rebuild with all addon airports

Thank you both for your replies. If I am reading this right the scenery.cfg file will not show my add on airports and they should show when I try to fly from one of these specific airports. However they should show under scenery when I boot up P3D? Unfortunately some are not showing. I know I can a...

Re: scenery.cfg file does not rebuild with all addon airports

I do not have a number of airports showing in my scenery.cfg file, it looks like just the basic airports in LM P3Dv4 only. I have deleted the file a few times so the sim builds a new file but just the same. How can I get it to rebuild with all my add on airports? Thanks Laurie When you delete the s...

Re: Simconnect not working v4.5

Hello Jorge, be careful with "As administrator" and "Admin Rights". That can go very wrong. I had it happen more than once to me that I installed stuff "As Administrator", only to find out that I cannot remove it anymore, because the files don't belong to me. Access rights are not the same as owners...

Giving back the control over an AI the simulator

Hello @ll, currently it is not possible (or I am not aware of the correct method) to get an AI aircraft back under "ATC control" when it has been created the wrong way as Non-ATC aircraft. It would be very helpful if a method could be provided to get them back under ATC control in that state, for ex...

Re: Simconnect not working v4.5

The old 32-bit SimConnect also requires the old Visual C++ runtime components. True that. Vcredist 2005 and possibly 2007. The SimConnect.msi installer doesn't query or install them, that would only happen when you install FSX itself. This is also true for the addons themselves, C++ based programs ...

Re: Simconnect not working v4.5

Hello Jorge, 10.0.61259.0 is the FSX SP2 or Acceleration SimConnect version. The program is not looking for the P3D SimConnect at all. To make that addon work, you will have to install an FSX Accel SimConnect client. Maybe this one will do the trick: C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\redi...

Re: Memory leak in Managed SimConnect SetDataOnSimObject?

Oliver, I get the same rate as you are seeing with the code I pasted, but if I add additional data to the structure it seems to scale proportionately, so the more data is included in the SetData request the more memory builds up. Simon. Hello Simon, I have added a memory monitor in code, so it cont...

Re: Memory leak in Managed SimConnect SetDataOnSimObject?

Hello Simon, I am running your program right now on P3D 4.4 (I copy&pasted your code and dropped the buttons on the form). The process starts out at 24 MB, upon creation of the 100 aircraft at EDDM (I am using the FLAI Airbus A340) and after starting the SetDataOnSimobject loop that makes them turn,...

Re: Memory leak in Managed SimConnect SetDataOnSimObject?

Hello Simon, I am using that SimConnect method extensively in many of my apps (which are all managed code). I never experienced any memory issues, and neither did customers (AFAIK). Updates happen with every frame mostly, so if there was a problem, memory consumption would explode quickly. I am usin...

Re: How to add existing Scenery.cfg to P3Dv4.5

For what it is worth, I use this when scanning for duplicates: http://www.scruffyduck.org/simple-airport-scanner/4584282795 It shows the locations of the duplicated files, and it is then up to the user to decide which of these duplicated files to remove. No need to mess with the scenery.cfg file. J...
