• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

    FSX [Solved] XML Gauge 'Stop watch' with digital readout problem

    FSX [Solved] XML Gauge 'Stop watch' with digital readout problem

    Hi Tom Thanks for your comment but there is a misunderstanding. StartStopMode is not a boolean but has three values: 0 for reset state / 1 for run state / 2 for stop state. You can see this if you look at the <Click></Click> statement at the bottom of my XML code. With each click StartStopMode...

    FSX [Solved] XML Gauge 'Stop watch' with digital readout problem

    Based on an existing XML gauge I setup the images and the XML code to display the stop watch installed in the real hawker hunter used by the swiss air force. The stop watch looks good and works fine with one exception. To make the stop watch time better readable, I display the elapsed time in a...

    Get BGL Type

    I have a good selection of (not to sophisticated) airport sceneries that work fine in FSX. If I port them to P3D v4/5 using the addon.xml methode, the airport sceneries are visible but have some scenery elements missing. I assume the reason is that some BGLs are FS9 BGLs or the textures are...

    Video Tutorial Series for Creating Scenery with Blender

    Hi Bill Thanks a lot for the tutorials. I try to follow it using Blender 2.82. As you can probably imagine as a newbe I have some difficulties to 'translate' the tutorial to the new blender version. Should people ask questions about the tutorial here or in a separate new topic? Currently I...

    P3D v5 Blender2P3D/FSX

    Hallo Thanks a lot for the updated version 0.97.20. I installed the new version by removing the previous version and then installing the new one without restarting Blender inbetween. I hope that is the correct way to do it. And one little remark: In the Blender2P3DFSX entry in Edit -->...

    Reverse Polish Notation

    Thanks a lot for your ansers! @rpmc: Very helpful hint. As a result of a search for Schema I have the impression that all the gauges I have been looking at were all written in FS9 XML schema. Question: Is there anywhere an XSD to be found for the FS9 XML and the FSX XML?

    Reverse Polish Notation

    Again thanks a lot for your answers. @tgibson: I really love things that are almost the same! But I think you learn such fine details only after searching for hours why the damm gauge is not working. @rcbarend: That XML is not a coding language that I am aware; it is just to structrue data. I...

    Reverse Polish Notation

    I have a further question to the code section of a gauge. A good many informations I can find to this refer to FS2004. My question: Are there any known differences (in the code section of a gauge) between FS2004 and FSX? Like new / changed operators, statements and other syntax elements. I am...

    Reverse Polish Notation

    Thanks a lot for your answers! My mistake was that I assumed RPN is not just a methode to write code but actually a coding language (which it is not!). Since I found the coding definitions in the SDK which is what I have been looking for. And to have tutorials how gauges are coded is great.

    Reverse Polish Notation

    I would like to learn more abut RPN to write gauges code. Up to now I could not find any document that describes the RPN syntax like what operators and statements are supported and the use of white space (required, possible, forbiden). Is there any such document for FSX or else where can I find...

    FSXA Starting FSX Muliplayer Host Automatically

    I have been thinking about what I wrote above and the reason why the clients can not logon if FSX is called as documented above: "<pathToFSX>\fsx.exe" "-NET:<pathToServerConfig>\host.cfg" "-FLT:<pathToFLTFile>\flight.flt" I have come to the conclusion that I fooled myself. As I wrote above FSX...

    FSX Display Issue

    I assume your Flight Sim PC runs Windows 10 because I know this problem since I changed to Win 10. I have not a clue why it happens but the solution is simple. Move your cursor to the FSX icon at the bottom. When the preview appears move the cursor into the preview, right click and choose...

    FSXA Starting FSX Muliplayer Host Automatically

    I am seting up an FSX multiplayer server. Since different wings of our group, that train on different weekdays, need different weather conditions, I would love to be able to start the FSX multiplayer server automatically, each weekday with the required weather. In a forum I found the following...

    Hi Please excuse my rather short and unclear message. The reason is that FSDeveloper will only accept messages with max. 420 characters. My original text was about 3 times that size! Thanks a lot for your answer Hannes 'Geronimo' Schmid

    Hi Gypsy Baron I searched FSDeveloper about info on the setup of a FSX MP server. While doing so I came across entries from you. I also looked at the 31st group page. Interesting for me since I am a member of the virtual Swiss Air Force (www.vsaf.ch). We fly the P-51D from A2A. I would love to...
