    RE: Lost Gauge Functions

    Could this be an issue surrounding multiple instances of the same gauge running and the requirement to structure your code to take account of this?

    Code logic issues can arise when you have more...
  2. Bitmap color depth and IMAGE_FORMAT in C gauges

    In my work getting OpenGL rendering to C gauges I've always been mystified as to why the IMAGE_FORMAT enumeration that is used in the IMAGE structure in gauges.h lists so many formats as shown below:...
  3. Loading gauge bitmaps other than via resource handle

    Is anyone out there using an alternative method of loading their gauge bitmaps other than storing them as resources attached to the .gau file and giving the MAKE_STATIC macros their resource handle?...

  5. RE: Odd compile error when renaming source files from c to cpp

    LOL.

    After looking through your Template code Bill, I now see why I was getting the error in my post above.

    I needed to redefine the ULONG_PTR as a DWORD.

    The VC 2005 documentation help file...
  6. RE: Odd compile error when renaming source files from c to cpp

    Wild Bill to the rescue again. You sir are what is commonly called (in my neck of the Manchester-UK woods) as a star :)

    I was beginning to think I'd be better off reverting back to my VC 2003...
  7. RE: Odd compile error when renaming source files from c to cpp

    Excellent. Thanks Doug.

    It makes a little more sense but still unclear on some points. It appears to be re-hooking a structure containing a function pointer to the other structure name -...

    Sticky: 'service_id' values explained?

    I'm trying to get a handle on the manner in which the panel system for FS2004 calls C gauge code routines and was wondering if anyone could expand on the following:

  9. RE: Odd compile error when renaming source files from c to cpp

    After some searching through the VC 2005 docs the basis of this error seems to indeed be exactly what the error message says, that C++ does not apply a default type when a type specifier is missing....
  10. Odd compile error when renaming source files from c to cpp

    After a lengthy time away from C gauge dabbling I now have time to try and get my head around it all again.

    Staring at the ceilings and rear walls

    I always fly with my right hand on the mouse or hovering over the keyboard and my left hand firmly on the joystick. When flying I want quick, logical access to all views without any hassle. Now one...
  12. RE: FS would benefit from a change in architecture

    I can't see Microsoft taking the open source route for FSX either.

    The best we can hope for is for the development team to ensure the design of FSX is implemented with much greater extensibility...

    With 20-odd years of fans surrounding the Flight Simulator series I'm not sure the FSX marketing campaign strategy is as vital as say a completely new product. I think the important decisions need to...

  18. RE: Windows/full screen switching no longer works

    I tried deleting the cfg file and regenerating but to not avail. FS2004 still refuses to switch between full and windowed screen modes when I press ALT+ENTER. It's throughly confusing.

    So very nice of the Megascenery publishers to omit this important information about their charts being cropped - why not simply include the expected coverage? The whole marketing thrust of...
