A big petition about URL to information about inside of MS FS.

Recommended Posts

I need to create some module (.dll) for FS. I know how to do it. It loaded and unloaded just fine. Question is: where can I get information about inside of MS FS ? How can I control FS (get and put some FS specific data) from my .DLL.Thanks for the help.

Hey Vladmir,An easy way to do that is to read and write from/to FS's memory using the correct offsets. Take a look at a msg posted by Jean-Luc called How To GLOBAL.DLL. In there you will find a code snippet that gets a handle to the Global.dll file (a DLL that contains most of the FS values of interest to developers) and then adds the offset so that you are reading the correct portion of the computer memory.To write, you can use memcpy, again using the offset you defined earlier to write to the correct position. For more on that take a look at the MSDN library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.aspTo know the correct offsets, a good table comes with the FSUIPC SDK or with the newly released, freeware, FDSConnect, which you can find at http://www.flightdecksoftware.comIf you need more help, feel free to contact me by going to our website and clicking on Contact Us. We have Live help working for the most part of 24 hours each day. And thanks go to Jean-Luc for teaching us all how to do this.
