    Connecting to FSUIPC with 3rd Party Applications

    Hi all,

    I would like to write a program like Link2FS, but specifically for the PMDG 737. Does anyone have any documentation on how to change the offsets from a third party program?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Jeff,

    You can do it with a LUA script that communicates with FSX through a registered copy of FSUIPC.

    And with a LUA script you do not need to write a whole 3rd party program.

    However, from my experience LUA wasn't an easy learn because there aren't a lot of simple examples.


    Research: LUA, LINDA, FSUIPC LUA examples.

    LINDA is program that you can use to make LUA assignments to devices. But I never use it for that. LINDA has a utility in it called LINDA Tracer.

    LINDA Tracer allows you to see LUA variables, their Set values, FSUIPC offsets, and FSX controls. It also allows you to change these setting on the fly to see what they do in FSX.

    I hope that helps to get you started.

    Thanks Fess, I was looking at those and think I found a much better option. I believe the best way to go about this is to use simconnect just like links2fs. I appreciate the help.
