Re: Simconnect version 4.5 does not work with 4.1

Hi, nope...you cannot run a newer SimConnect client with an older SimConnect Server (which is basically the P3D version). As you might make requests that are simply not supported by the server and would lead to unexpected behaviour. The other way around works, though: comile against an older client ...

Re: DirectX 12 RTT Render not called.

Hi,

for me, this works. Render() is being called. So I guess there must be something with your code somewhere.

Re: Simconnect disconnects immediately after connection is established

To chime in: do you do some simconnect exception handling somewhere in your code? Maybe an exception with further information is thrown before you receive SIMCONNECT_RECV_ID_QUIT. But of course you have to handle it.

D3D11 RTT in v5

Hi guys, I am trying to port some D3D11 render-to-texture functionality over from v4 to v5 before completely migrating the code to D3D12, which will take quite some time. According to this SDK article it should be possible: https://prepar3d.com/SDKv5/sdk/pdk_api/samples/texture_and_effect_render_plu...

Re: IWeatherSystem Service issue

Hi Ahmed,

I don't know if that helps, but why do you query for the legacy IID_IWeatherSystem and not directly for the current version IID_IWeatherSystemV430 of the interface?

Re: Different Eyepoint with PDK

Hi, are you sure you are actually working on the current ICameraSystem? I am constanly checking GetCurrentWindow() and GetCameraSystem() and see whether they are returning different objects than the ones I am doing calculations on. Once I figured this out, everything has been working out quite well....

Re: P3D::PdkServices::GetMenuService()->AddItem with unknown parent MenuID

Hi guys,

just wanted to chime in that also with Prepar3D v4 SDK 4.5.13.32097 this doesn't seem to be fixed.

Re: How to get all waypoints of flight plan

Hi John, you can use the variables in the following link in conjunction with the ExecuteCalculatorCode() function of the PDKs IPanelSystemV400 interface to query the GPS system for a lot of flightplan data: https://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/sdk/panels_and_user_interface/gauges/references/gps_variables....

Re: Flightplan data with the PDK

Thanks Jonathan for the hint. I looked at the link you provided and compared it to the PDK documentation of the Panel System Service...while I could recreate the TacPack approach with it, I don't see the advantage coding-wise over just using ExecuteCalculatorCode() from within my module. They are wr...

Just as a follow-up: I know I can use ExecuteCalculatorCode() from the IPanelSystemV400 to retrieve flighplan data from the gps system, but this seems a little cumbersome to me...but if need be, I will go down this route, for now. Just looking for some confirmation that there actually is no other wa...

Flightplan data with the PDK

Hi guys,

does anyone know a viable way to retrieve loaded flightplan data (esp. departure and destination ICAOs) via the PDK as well as getting notified if a new flightplan is loaded? Is this even possible, yet?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Question on PDKs RenderingPlugin

Hi guys,

can be disregarded. In the meantime I've found out that the renderer is also running on the main thread. So no problem.

All the best, Benny
