Read FSX Cameras - Static Lib

Recommended Posts

I will be publishing all of my code for FSX which could be interesting maybe for someone.

Here is the code to read the active camera position at any time (XYZ in meters) for FSXA-SP2-SE. Also it reads the 6DOF of the active camera.

There are 4 Libs (MT, MD, MTd, MDd), you just need to link it to your project (there are VS2005 Libs). Other VS20XX Lib versions please PM me!

To use it, include "camera.h" in your project and link the Lib. You need to call the InitCameras function, passing 2 float pointers which will be written every frame with the camera position and the current 6DOF.


#include "stdafx.h"
#include "camera.h"

float XYZ[3];
float _6DOF[6];

void DLLStart(void)
    InitCameras(XYZ, _6DOF);


void DLLStop(void)


When done, do not forget to call DeInitCameras.


You can download the code here

Any feedback is appreciated!
