Re: can PdkServices be invoked from processes other than P3ds?

However, it should be possible for your executable to be able to communicate with a PDK based DLL using SimConnect calls such as SimConnect_CreateClientData and SimConnect_SetClientData. This would allow an external application to transmit data to a PDK based C++ plugin over SimConnect where the pl...

Re: On screen text display in VR

Is there an example of passing data from a SimConnect project to a PDK project? I have the text rendering but I have not been able to access the user's FCS target info nor any weapon info. I've seen a few posts mentioning you can use SimConnect_SetClientData and then have your PDK read in that clien...

On screen text display in VR

Has anyone found a way to display text on-screen that is viewable in VR similar to the SimDirector's "OnScreenText" Object? I know there are a few SimConnect_Text option but they don't seem to be viewable in VR nor can I control the offset.

Re: DE/KE weapon interaction

Currently, P3D only broadcasts these PDU's, nothing is done as they are received. This answers what I really wanted! I have not been using the P3D DE weapon, it is coming from another sim but if nothing is done with the PDUs then that answers that! Are there plans to have these PDUs effect P3D SimO...

DE/KE weapon interaction

In the P3D v4.4 release one line that caught my eye was: "Added laser fire and detonation DIS PDUs." Does this mean that a DE weapon (e.g., Laser) can interact with and disable a KE weapon? My thoughts were that P3D used DIS protocol 6 and that DE weapon DIS PDUs were added in version 7. So far I've...
