IS VER

From LFS Manual
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction

The IS_VER packet contains information about the LFS and InSim versions, allowing you to prevent your program interacting with legacy versions of the game. To request a IS_VER packet to be sent, either set the ReqI to non-zero in the IS_ISI packet when initialising InSim, or by sending a IS_TINY packet with a SubT of TINY_VER.

struct IS_VER // VERsion
{
	byte	Size;			// 20
	byte	Type;			// ISP_VERSION
	byte	ReqI;			// ReqI as received in the request packet
	byte	Zero;

	char	Version[8];		// LFS version, e.g. 0.3G
	char	Product[6];		// Product : DEMO or S1
	word	InSimVer;		// InSim Version : increased when InSim packets change
};
