Re: "There are multiple objects with the same title name"

If FSDT looked at the posted information they should have seen the second iteration of the title in the CFG file. The posted information on our forum, in a post dated November: http://www.fsdreamteam.com/forum/index.php/topic,22437.msg151516.html#msg151516 Back then, it was said Simdirector reporte...

Re: RayCast ObjectID return

If you can provide a complete code snippet of what you are doing, that would be helpful too. Hi Matt, after some debugging, I think I found the problem: it was always picking Simobjects, which is weird, since there weren't any where I clicked so, I fixed it by just removing this whole section: // I...

Re: RayCast ObjectID return

Hi Beau, thanks a lot for your code, I tried it, and it seems to work a bit different, but is still not right. - the mouse picking bWasHit is always false, is this normal ? - I used the undocumented uMessage to check the mouse click status. It seems to be 512 when no mouse is clicked and 513 after a...

Re: PBR and skinned mesh ?!

The animations with skinned mesh works just fine in PBR, the "Skinned Mesh" option is not required anymore in the material settings, because it will work automatically, but you'll still need to be sure to check the "Export Skin" option during the export of the .X file.

Re: RayCast ObjectID return

Any news about this issue ? We had to disable the mouse picking feature, but it would be very nice if we could put it back, because it would made our product GSX a bit easier to use.

Re: RayCast ObjectID return

Hello, I managed to compile the code and, the issue was I was still using the V400 camera interface, which only had one overload for GetPickResult. Using the V430 interface added the other overload which works. However, the result is exactly the same as before: I'm getting the coordinates of the cam...

Re: RayCast ObjectID return

Thanks a lot, after reading the article in the help file, I can see the 4 spheres in the sample! However, I still can't compile this in my code: PickResult result; pCamera->GetPickResult(0, result); The compiler outputs this error: 'P3D::ICameraSystemV400::GetPickResult': function does not take 2 ar...

Re: RayCast ObjectID return

You can convert to/from ScreenCoord and LLA using the Camera interface. Could you please shed some light on the GetWorldCoord() function ? I can use the GetScreenCoord() function with no issues, and it works as expected, but can't figure out how the inverse GetWorldCoord() works. It seems that, reg...

Re: Event Viewer error

So, I Un-checked the RTT option, rebooted the PC and tested both P3Dv3.4 and FSX again. No couatl scripting error ..... all ok. As I've said, the first crash was be a coincidence, it couldn't possibly caused by that option, considering the 32 bit version of the Addon Manager doesn't even *have* tha...

Re: Event Viewer error

When did you add the RTT to your software? Somewhere around March, I believe. Is your RTT disable option only for P3Dv4 or also P3Dv3? No, only P3D4. We never activated such features in V3. I do use Win7-64 That's seems to be consistent with other reports so far. I am not using GSX It's enough you ...

Re: Event Viewer error

Hello to all, We posted an update to our Addon Manager, with an option to disable RTT (which we don't use right now, but we will on future products), and this should fix any remaning API.DLL crash ON EXIT you might still have which seemed to affect Windows 7 users only. Have a look at this post on o...

Re: Event Viewer error

I noticed this thread on FSDT forum, but Umberto insists he's fixed any problem that might be related to his products, by updating bglmanx64.dll, but I have the new version of that file and still have the problem. Yes, because the fix was related only to a silent (only visible in the Event Viewer) ...

Re: Addon Scenery

On the other hand you have not lost one word regarding the requirements of end users to properly and easily manage their add-ons with respect to scenery layers, priorities and pain-free enabling/disabling them. And there is this requirement, it cannot be negated. Because it's not an inherent limita...

Re: Addon Scenery

Scenery.cfg is the primary way around sceneries Scenery.cfg used to be the primary way to add sceneries, in order to offer some backward compatibility with older version of the sim. But the new method, which has been introduced in P3D V3, is WAY better. All other methods are nonsense and make the m...

Re: Using add-on.xml

Is there a way to properly change the order the addons are placed? For example I want to move fsAerodata to the top of the list, but it currently shows at the bottom. If you reorder them in the add-ons.cfg file by their Package number, the whole addon priority will be swapped. Or, if you want to re...
