[edit] Native APIs

Auran provides some native (C++) libraries which allow Trainz 3rd-party developers to access specific Trainz internal files and functionality which are otherwise opaque. These are provided in DLL form within the Trainz installation, and should not be redistributed as their implementation is specific to each Trainz install version.

TrainzNativeInterface - A helper DLL which provides the basic functionality for communication between Trainz executables and third-party DLLs.


[edit] Documentation
