Re: Settings Dialog Size

After poking about in the config files I found the settings. C:\Users\<you user>\AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v2\UISettings.xml look for key <d2p1:Key>Views.HelpSettings.DataCenter</d2p1:Key> and modify <windowedstate> entries (I just copied the FullScreenState values). Deleting UISettin...

Settings Dialog Size

HI All, My settings dialog box has resized itself and I can no longer get access to all of the Prepar3d settings which is very annoying. It resized itself when I changed the physical screen resolution when the dialog was still open (won't do that again). There doesn't appear to be any re-size hotspo...

I'm doing the same sort of thing but in a slightly different manner:<br /> using degrees not radians:-<br /> hr = SimConnect_AddToDataDefinition(hSimConnect, DEFINITION_USER_LAT , "Plane Latitude", "degrees");<br /> using the frame event<br /> hr = SimConnect_SubscribeToSystemEvent(hSimConnect, EVEN...

Doh,<br /> <br /> ObjectID should be set to 1 for SimConnect_TransmitClientEvent to work on user aircraft.<br /> <br /> If set to 0 it works on general sim events for example "PAUSE_TOGGLE" , pauses/unpauses whole simulation I assume.<br /> <br /> I could've sworn I did the above originally. I'm Swe...

I'm not 100% on this but not all DME's specify DME 0 is at the threshold, some may indeed indicate the touchdown point.<br /> To facilitate this nav data bases may include a DME BIAS entry. I am not familiar with the P3D navdata base so I am not sure if this setable/editable, it probably is tho...

Hi All,<br /> I am using SimConnect_WeatherSetObservation(pParent->hSimConnect,0,MetarStr); to set user visibility values and it works ok on ground polygons however the fog doesn't seem to render properly beyond the horizon or more specifically the sky background. For example , if I have a hill in t...

Jim,<br /> I have tried the FREEZE events as above without success leading me to think I must be missing a step.<br /> Originally the idea was to have FSX render our simulator(s) visual world only and not digging too deep into the SDK I came up with moving a default aircraft around. Slew was require...

Hi Jim,<br /> Thanks for the reply. I have tried using 1 instead of 0 and I have also tried SLEW_ON / OFF to no effect<br /> however adding<br /> hr = SimConnect_MapInputEventToClientEvent(hSimConnect, INPUT_ZX, "ctrl+shift+A", EVENT_SLEW_TOGGLE);<br /> <br /> (and changing previous id EVENT_SLEW_SE...
