    FS2004 Flightplan utility [Solved]

    A few weeks ago my external backup disk gave up the ghost. No sweat! I began looking for another. This weekend, before I could acquire a new backup disk, my 'Extras' disk failed miserably and won't allow me to recover the files from it. All my documents gone, my photos, my music and worst of...

    FS2004 EGT Gauge in XML

    Hi, I am attempting to construct a gauge which would use something like this EICAS gauge. Can anyone explain what the first line actually means? I reckon it is assigning a value of 2,1 or 0 depending on the rate of Fuel Flow and then displaying a suitable bmp depending on that value. The...

    FS2004 Is this how it happens in real life?

    Hi, I fly a slightly modified C172 in FS2004, usually very short trips around Ireland at 2000 - 2500', VFR and no flight plan. Recently, to have a trial of IFR in the flight planner within FS2004 (for a couple of years when I flew a 737 I used FS Commander), I set about organizing a flight...

    FS2004 Gauge in window causes problems when closing

    Hi, I cannot remember this happening until recently. I press a hot-spot on the screen to display a new window (radio, ATC, GPS or whatever). It comes up just grand. I press again to close that window and there is a flash in the cockpit, the display of the cockpit appears to jump (not a high...

    FS2004 Anyone throw some light on this? (SOLVED)

    Hi, I have obviously messed up my FS2004 installation in some way. When I turn on my Landing or Taxi lights the effects shown below happen - box-like shapes twisting and turning from the lights. They are visible inside the cockpit and in outside views. Not only on the Cessna - on any...

    FS2004 Attempting to use XMLVars... (Solved)

    Hi, I can get around XML a wee bit and have developed gauges using it - but the l0, sp1, s0 etc commands really intimidate me and break me out in a cold sweat. I have a Bendix-King radio in my FS2004 Cessna. I want to make it a bit more realistic and store frequencies as they can in real...

    FS2004 Radio woes... (Now Solved)

    Hi, I watched with great interest the progress in the thread by Lionheart "Long Press Multiple Command Button". I particularly liked it when Anthony31 gave us all a free working example of how it all could be coded. With nothing else worthwhile to do (?) I decided to put my newfound knowledge...

    FS2004 Blurry image of parked aircraft.

    Hi, When I approach the parked Irish Air Corps AiVER CASA CN-235-220 this is what I see... If I press ALT then this is what I see... Obviously I would rather have the detail of the second all the time! (Not that I would choose to approach military aircraft uninvited - it is just that...

    FS2004 How to know what BGLs are loaded..... (SOLVED)

    Hi. I fly around Dublin EIDW a lot in my Cessna 172, without any hassle, no lock-ups, no BSODs. Normally I just simply land on Rwy 28, but I have landed on Rwy 10 a few times, without any trouble. I have also landed at and taken off from Weston EIWT and some other smallish airports around...

    FS2004 SOLVED "Time" to go to the experts...

    I have a timer, which shows elapsed time since a button was pressed. Simple! Maybe not so simple! I seem to have made a mess of the logic somewhere. The code used is this: <Element> <Select> <Value> (L:StartElapsedTimer,number) 1 == if{...

    FS2004 SOLVED - Radio frequency set-up problems

    Hi, In my FS2004 Cessna 172 XML radio stack I set up the standby comms frequency using the knob and then transfer that frequency into the active frequency using the transfer button. I set up the whole number of the frequency in one LVAR on the outside of the knob and the decimal part in...

    FS2004 To set the Autopilot to climb...

    Hi, I am messing around with an autopilot of my own (for fun!) in the Bendix King KAP 140 style (using XML). I want to get the AP to climb or descend the aircraft at a desired rate of FPM. I have used "0 (&gt;K:AP_VS_VAR_INC)" and "0 (&gt;K:AP_VS_VAR_DEC)" to set the desired rate. What is...

    How long before I am bored? ... again!

    Some years ago I went to a lot of trouble to put together a 2D panel with XML gauges for the B737 from 50 North, in FS2004. I bought the ISG gauges to give me a realistic FMC. I flew with it a for a few months, updating and improving the gauges as I went, then tired of it... I then spent a few...

    Boeing 737 Yoke question...

    Hi, The Yoke in a Boeing 737, as I am sure most of you know, looks somewhat like that below: This image was in a cockpit I found online. My question is: What are those controls on the right arm of the yoke - they like like three thumb-wheels - or at least the pilots appear to thumb them...

    ASCII Codes in Gauges

    Hi, when I try to have a % sign on one of my gauges it won't show up. I used the ASCII code as shown in the code section <String>&#37;</String> I can display Exclamation Mark, Dollar, Hash using 32, 36, 35 but 37 will just not display anything. Any Ideas? Thanks Walter

    Autothrottle failure

    Hi, I am flying along in my B737, say 14000', say 320kt. I am using the autopilot and autothrottle. I am using VOR/LOC. Suddenly, the speed begins to rise, the OVERSPEED warning goes off and if I don't disengage autopilot and autothrottle rather rapidly and do something about it manually then...

    Doug Dawson's fuel dump gauge

    Hi, I asked a question concerning the operation of this gauge in another thread. Unfortunately (for me!!) Lane Street is not experiencing the problem that I am experiencing while using this gauge. I wished to use the gauge to fill the tanks in my FS2004 B737 to a certain level...

    This just doesn't add up!

    Hi I have an XML gauge which contains the following: <String>%((L:PassengersEcon, number) 206.0 * )%!6d!</String> If L:PassengersEcon holds 5 then the answer comes out at 1127. If L:PassengersEcon holds 83 then the answer comes out at 17006. Getting out my normally...

    Minipanel in FS2004

    Hi a long time ago I somehow did away with the FS Minipanel showing in FS2004 when the W key is pressed. This was a good thing! In a recent re-installation of FS2004 that darned panel is showing itself again! This is despite the fact that the panel.cfg for the aircraft I am flying has...
