Re: 4.2 bugs

Hi,


Thanks for posting, will have a look.
The underlying base code has been changed dramatically, I think there will be more quirks like those.

Did you install the latest 4.1 BETA flight plugins? You need the new plugin for this to work.

Re: Video_stream_add

Hi, Not sure how X-plane does it internally. but the API lets you request a certain avionics device. It is also working when the virtual cockpit is turned off. If they where smart about it, they wouldn't render any avionics if the virtual cockpit is turned off and no requests have been done through ...

Re: Video_stream_add

Hi,


No, in fact the X-plane API keeps using the openGL functions.
They have some kind of translation layer to Vulkan it seems.


When they would leave openGL for plugins, a lot of plugins would break instantly,

Re: Video_stream_add

Hi, Yeah, that would also includes iPad and Android. We tested the stream on a Pi, and it was able to keep up with a decent framerate. Don't expect to run multiple streams though. On my 11800H processor, when running 4 streams at once, the AM process uses about 2% CPU. This is quite a high end machi...

Re: Video_stream_add

Hi, Yeah, X-plane 12 has a new feature where you access the texture for certain avions devices. AM 4.2 will use this to incorporate such a texture into an instrument. So yeah, as far as X-plane is concerned, no more popouts. And yes, you can also stream to other devices, like tablets. Still testing ...

Re: IIC si_variable_write, array

Hi,


Offsets are not supported at the moment.
I have fixed the incorrect example in the 'si_variable_create' page.

Have added this to our TODO list, it will be part of AM 4.2 when it hits.

Re: Generic-Battery Switch in Hardware and Instrument?

No,


Not in your last screenshot, but it was there in the one before that.

Does it still work when the file was saved to disk?
That would be very mysterious if it would :)

Re: Generic-Battery Switch in Hardware and Instrument?

Hi,


Seems like you never saved the file, indicated by the '*' next to the filename.

Re: Generic-Battery Switch in Hardware and Instrument?

Hi, The two screenshots you shown are of the same plugin. You can tell by the name, which is the same. Hardware functions where added later to AM, hardware used to only be added to instruments. But right now we try to separate the two. So try to only use hardware within hardware function plugins. Co...
