I wish someone had told me this when I got started:- Do a web search on Dai Griffiths.- Download the FS SDK from the Microsoft web site- Go to the Squawkbox 3 web site (do a search) and there's a sample basic module file there.Note that there isn't much of a difference between FS modules and FS gauges - both are DLLs, the only thing is that a gauge must implement a number of callbacks to handle the "events". Consequently, a lot of the info on gauges apply to DLLs. Most modules (added to the modules folder) provide some kind of service to other DLLs, or are full fledged applications (example, FSNavigator). Gauges (added to the gauges folder) can also do the same thing, but instead of being loaded automatically need to be referenced inside a panel.cfg file per aircraft.Some add-ons use both to make the stuff work. Because these are DLLs, the sky is the limit as far as Win32 is concerned.
