reading engine state

Recommended Posts

HelloAnybody know how to tell if the engine is failed using simconnect? I tried:SimConnect_AddToDataDefinition(hSimConnect, DEFINITION_ENGINE_FAILED,"PARTIAL PANEL ENGINE","enum");But it doesn't seem to work. Also tried "PARTIAL PANEL ENGINE:1".It's weird because "PARTIAL PANEL ELECTRICAL","enum" seems to work.Ideas anyone?thanks

Check out SDKCore Utilities KitVariablesSimulation Variables.html.Just doing a quick search on "FAIL" in that findsGENERAL ENG FAILED:indexon the fourth or fifth match. Looking further there's alsoENG FAILED:indexThe PARTIAL PANEL ENGINE variable is talking about gauge failures, as all of the PARTIAL PANEL variables are, not necessarily failures of the systems themselves.RegardsPete
