GSX across networked client visual computers
« on: February 01, 2018, 06:40:43 PM »
I am just posting this topic to get ideas from folks like me who may be curious if there is a way to get GSX (ground services) to run across multiple PCs (as in a three channel projector setup using PCs on each projector).

So far my reading has said it's impossible to coordinate, even worse, I can't find a way to fire off GSX from WideView driven aircraft on the clients.

Any ideas?

Hey there navymustang,

I'm hoping maybe you've possibly come up with a solution for this.  I'm trying to do the same thing.  Any luck?

I have not read of any solutions to this. And when I spoke with GSX folks they said the audience for this solution is so small they would not commit time to do it.  That was last year, hopefully we can bend their ear a little more at FlightSim Expo this next month.

So, without wanting to raise expectations I am messing about at the moment with some code which could develop into something which is an alternative to WideView and WideTraffic.

The WideView alternative is working nicely; on my setup at least it seems that using the PDK (which is a lower level hook into P3D) rather than SimConnect leads to a much smoother experience.

I also have (in an early alpha phase) some code which syncs Airline and Ground traffic across networked P3D instances. It is performing OK, and includes GSX created objects, but there are some limitations. In particular GSX looks to me like it is using some custom code, enabled by the P3D SDK, to animate some of the objects, and this leads to some odd depictions when using my code. (For example the pushback truck ends up oriented at 90 degrees to the aircraft). I'm very much an amateur at this and learning as I go along, so it may be that I can resolve this.

I have no desire for this to be commercial, so I am considering uploading the codebase onto GitHub. Are there any other C++ / C# coders out there who would be interested in contributing?

Regards
