I don't know Diablo, but i'll post as soon as I find out.

Like I said, if its what I think it is, we're going to be some very happy cockpit owners.

101! or Knob Creek even http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. I wonder what hoops must be jumped through to send booze to Russia http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Here is the devicelink.txt content.

T


The DeviceLink interface is meant to provide the third-party software with the
current condition of the player's aircraft as well as allow an unified method of
connecting alternative operating controls.

DeviceLink utilizes the UDP protocol to transfer the data. In this network, IL2
plays a part of the server. The external application sends a query packet, in
reply, IL2 sends back one (or several) packets containing the query result.
Proposing using the protocol within a single computer, ar a local network, no
data encoding is used and data integrity CRC-checks are not taken. Packets do
contain only symbolic information, the allowed range is (0x21-0x7e). A query
packet is preceded with an 'R' symbol, the resulting packed is preceded with an
'A'; followed by one or several "key"/"value" pairs. The "key" is the number
identifying a parameter. The "value" may be omitted or consist of a number of
copies. The semantics of the "value" depends on the parameter itself. The "keys"
are preceded with a '/', the "values" are preceded with a '\'. If a "value" is
to contain one of these symbols, it is preceded with a '\'. There are two types
of "keys" - (get) requiring to return the value of the given parameter, and
(set) setting the given parameter. The (get) keys are even while the latter ones
are odd. "Get-keys" may contain values for the specified parameter, the answer
packet returns the "value" with the "get-key". "Set-keys" may contain values for
the parameter, but with these the reply contains none.

Ex.:

key 40 - altimeter
key 81 - power
Query packet - R/40/81\1.6e-1
Return the aircraft altitude, and set the power to 1.6e-1.
Reply (answer) packet - A/40\534.3
Returns the current altitude 534.3 meters MSL.

The DeviceLink interface is activated if the [DeviceLink] section is found in the
conf.ini file. Within this section, "port" specifies the number of UDP port for
data transfer.
Using "host" parameter one can specify the address of the network interface in
use.
The "IPS" parameter restricts the allowed client IP addresses. If the "IPS"
parameter is not found in the section, any IP address is allowed to connect.

Ex.:

[DeviceLink]
port=10000
IPS=10.1.1.3 10.1.1.8

Port number is 10000, allowed clients are 10.1.1.3 and 10.1.1.8.

It means you can talk directly to the sim and get guage data, flight data, and...

SEND data into the sim directly, like "fire guns" or "set flaps to XXX" etc. no more wierdo keyboard maps. Just do a bit of programing in perl, php, visual basic, or whatever and you can do anything you can imagine.

If someone wanted to be way cool, an online Air Traffic Control panel could be made so that a person who doesn't have AEP could handle ATC at airbases for people who are playing.

how about wingman bots? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This is some seriously cool stuff.

I gotta say it: 1C is amazing sometimes.

As a practice example, I'm going to write a simple bot for testing flyable aircraft and loging the data to a text file.

No more subjective/ incorrect tests of plane performance.

You can build a cockpit and use interface equipment to pull the readings from teh game and make the guages read what you are really doing. So while you set in your cockpit in your basement, your control panels will read 20km alt, 350kph, engine temp etc.

awww now I understand. I could put actual guages in my cockpit using teh simkits. Then it would look and feel like the real thing. Hmm i like that idea.

You were thinking exactly the same thing as I was. A simple autopilot with which you can make performance graphs.

That thing could keep flying a plane all night, with different airspeeds, different power settings, different prop settings, different flap settings, and log timed data.

I guess making it perform circles and measure radious and time would be a bit more tricky, but not impossible. Rolling yet a bit trickier. Riding the edge of the stall and accurately measure stall speeds... don't know. Depends... If the latency is low enough (probably) and the precision of commands and instrument readings are good enough (probably) it's doable. If it's really good, we could measure stall speed at .1m intervals from, say, 1m to 10m and measure the impact of ground effect.

Arrggg. Here I came home from work for a nice 4 day weekend, and immediately the engineer in me woke up. Fortunately, control systems is not my job.

Now, where do we get gauges that can interface with this? I'm personally thinking about building a P-38 cockpit...

The next step is to add one more View -

Cockpit ON / NO Instruments view

It would just restrict your view to looking outside of the cockpit, but not fill up the screen with all the dials, etc.

That, with three monitors, and my home-built cockpit complete gauges and switches, will bring my life to a satisfying conclusion.

see its not a 3 monitor situation now anymore...

4 monitor support is where it needs to be at.

thing about it

left monitor

right monitor

center monitor

TOP (OVERHEAD) MONITOR.

nvidia has a new option to rotate the entire viewable screen over 90 degrees either direction.

now you can have an "above the pilot head" view

if you have 3 monitors forming a traditional "box" shape missing a side (as normal)... if you put a monitor face down on top, you have to turn it sideways to match the other edges of the monitors, but previously that meant the top view was F'ed up... now you can rotate the actual image so it fits, along the lines of the other monitors http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif!!!

I read somewhere that it is a very bad idea to let pilots have too much of a say when it comes to building a flight simulator in "real" world aviation,,,, Why?

With that said: I ordered 4 pieces (6 inches by 9 inches) of 1/4 inch clear acrylic today for my first panels. My LED's came in a few weeks ago, I've got a new drill, and I finally ordered a Plasma 2 (16-sliders, 60 buttons, 4 hats, and various other inputs).

All I need now is a boatload of switches, a stencil kit/ compass, and someone to do the sandblasting http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Never tried it. I think its just Jim Beam with another label. I may be wrong, but almost all of the new burbons are Jim Beam concoctions.

Knob Creek isn't bad. Blantons and Woodford Reserve aren't bad either, but for me, Wild Turkey is the best. Not too sweet, a bit 'green', and has a good strong bite. Thats good burbon.

But if you've got a jar full of corn liquer, I'll be your pal (at least till its gone).

I've modified a Kolisman altimeter to operate on compressed air. I've reversed the operation by puncturing the internal bellows, relieving the vacuum, and then resealing the bellows with solder. Now the altitude value indicated by the needles decrease with increasing pressure.

I've hooked the altimeter to an I/P(electronic pressure regulator). By varying the voltage to the I/P I can control the altitude reading. Here's a short avi movie:

http://simhardware.org//img/altimeter.avi

The action is jerky because I'm turning a potentiometer with rough precision.

Hi BaldieJr,

Very interesting discussion although I don‚'t know anything about the computer stuff y‚'all are talking about here.

Are you familiar with the ‚"memory mapped file‚"Ě system that Falcon4 uses? How does the ‚"UDP protocol‚"Ě compare to the Falcon4 system. Are there advantages to the UDP method?

Thanks,

Craig

WWSensei
05-22-2004, 04:49 PM
"Memory Map" and "UDP" don't compare. Memory Mapping means making changes directly to the application in memory. UDP is a network protocol for sending data packets. Nearly all online games use the UDP protocol for transmitting data. It's fast but not reliable, hence you get lost packets which can lead to lag/warp.

TCP guarantees delivery but because of all the handshaking would be terribly inefficient for gaming purposes.

To use an analogy the non-programmer might get "memory mapping" would equate to tweaking your car's engine while "UDP" would describe the highway.

Bricklayer
05-22-2004, 05:11 PM
WWSensei,

Thanks for the information. Is there a computational overhead difference? Is UDP faster?

BaldieJr
05-22-2004, 11:27 PM
Disadvantages of UDP: slight performance hit. some complexity invoved in use. Some information could be dropped under poor conditions.

Advantages: Can work locally or over a network. Is fast. Is portable.

I'm interfacing lua to the game, but I could have used any language I wanted, and because its network-ready, I can use any OS, on any hardware, that I could dream of.

lindymans app was writen in linux. My script is written in windows, but works exactly the same on linux, solaris, freebsd, or osX. Anther fellow wrote a Visual Basic app. All do the same thing, under entirely different circumstances.

One could even go so far as to bolt a few PICs to a network interface and create a computer that does only one thing: process game data.

Once again, 1C has given us something we want: choice in how we carry on with the game. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
