Flight Deck Software is proud to announce that FDSConnection v1.0 has been released today.
FDSConnection is a FSUIPC-like interface towards FS2004/2002. Much like FSUIPC, FDSConnection makes FS2004/2002 look like FS98. FS2004/2002 variables can be found at the same offsets they were in FS98 and currently are in FSUIPC.
Together with it we also released FDSWideConnection, for TCP/IP network access towards FDSConnection, and FDSScanFS, a tool to scan the FS2002/2004 memory.
FDSConnection is and will remain freeware. For (freeware) developers who are, like us, very unpleased with the fact that FSUIPC/WideFS is now payware, switching to FDSConnection is just a matter replacing a few function calls.
This first official release of FDSConnection is FS2004-only but as there are still numerous people flying FS2002, we will work hard to get a FS2002 version ready within a few weeks.
FDSConnection, FDSWideConnection, FDSScanFS and the SDKs can be downloaded from our website
