Re: static data load(): PATH limited to resource folder ONLY?

In my particular problem, there is an XPlane addon (as Keith said, most of the current development is done for specific addons, the stock planes are already covered. This addon has a Radio Management Unit which allows to use frequencies stored into memory from 1 to 20 for UHF, VHF and NAv radios. T...

Re: Inertial separator sw

First things first.
Does it have any effect on the engine? Namely an N1 drop andcITT rise? This as the inertial sep modifies the airflow entering the turbine and induces a reduction in power available.
If no effect of this kind is witnessed, this is probably pure cosmetic.

Re: xpl_command "ONCE" & "PRESS"?

Keith Baxter You can always use the workaround I exposed in my previous posts, to emulate the Command Pressed effect: Either: -a button with a Xpl_command BEGIN on pressed() state and an xpl_command END on the released state or - send a BEGIN normally, followed by the use of a timer to trigger the ...

Re: static data load(): PATH limited to resource folder ONLY?

Corjan I strongly disagree, but I understand this can be a problem with the tablet version, where there is no way to access the resource folder anyways. So in any case my instrument would not be deemed suitable for the store on that respect, since it would require the user to place a file in the re...

Re: static data load(): PATH limited to resource folder ONLY?

Hmmm thanks Corjan I was afraid of this answer. IMHO this is very limiting for development to say the least, as there are some configuration files which are part of an addon or directly XPlane that one needs to access in a way or another for an instrument to work. Here my problem is that I need to a...

Re: DC6 BMEP gauges

Yes, and since you are at it, you could replicate the "real" cockpit at the time, which has not been the case of PMDG apparently. One can include the needle gauges vibrations, typical of an airplane of this era. I had published a tutorial on how to achieve this somewhere in the forum https://upload....

static data load(): PATH limited to resource folder ONLY?

Hi again Corjan I am trying to retrieve a file located somewhere in the Xplane folder. Since AM has no way I know of to retrieve the current XPlane installation path (such feature would be GREATLY useful), I ended up by writing a two line FlywithLua script to get the current path. The FlywithLua is ...
