Re: Using DIS Engagement Lines for Aircraft

Hello,

The Navigation Visuals UI allows you configure and enable SimObject ribbons. These 3D ribbons follow objects as they move around the world.

Also, the Advanced Configuration section of the Learning Center describes how to further customize ribbon color based on association ID's.

Re: Sound Lowering and stops while takeoff

Hello,

Do you have the "Mute On Lost Focus" option on? This setting is available in Options > Settings > Sound.

Re: Regarding E:TIME OF DAY with PDK

Hi Benny,

There is a function called GetGeneralTimeOfDay. It is located in IGlobalData.Legacy.h which is the IGlobalDataV400 interface. You should still have access to it from the IGlobalDataV430 interface, however.

Hope this helps.

Re: 3ds Max 2017 crashes while exporting X files (Windows 10)

Hi alpha2echo,

Could there be a system memory limitation that you are hitting during export? Could you try doing an "Export Selected" with half of the scene selected to see if it successfully exports? You could also monitor memory usage using Windows Task Manager.

Thanks.

Hi jgrose, There are command line switches that are specific to multiplayer as well as the ability to set up custom config files.

Re: XtoMdl error P3d 4.5 HF1 SDK

Hi jabloomf1230,

How are you running XtoMDL? Are you compiling the MDL during export from 3dsMax or running it through command line?

Usually an error like that would mean that XtoMDL.exe couldn't load the SlimDX.dll. Can you double check that both files are in the same directory?

Thanks.

Re: PDK Sound Service Instance -> IsPlaying() Function

Hello, I am not consistently seeing IsPlaying() return E_FAIL, however I do see it return E_FAIL if I call Play() once and then change sound settings (such as changing playback device or changing volume for a specific category). If I do not make any sound changes IsPlaying() continues to return S_FA...

Re: PDK Sound Service Instance -> IsPlaying() Function

Hi flyboy7798,

Does the first time calling IsPlaying() return S_FALSE? Is it only the second time IsPlaying() returns E_FAIL? Could you provide a code snippet showing how you are listening to IsPlaying() and then calling Play()?

Thanks.

Re: On screen text display in VR

You could try casting the variable in your printf to double* and then dereference it:
case REQUEST_DATA:
printf("\nData request returned: %f\n", *(double*)pObjData->dwData);
break;

Re: On screen text display in VR

Hi MicMac44, Do you receive any SimConnect exceptions? When you say you aren't being returned the value of *testVar, do you mean the value is returned but incorrect? One thing to point out is that you are calling sizeof(testVar) , this will return the size of a pointer. In this case, both the pointe...
