    FSX Why is this knob not spinning?

    Hello, I have made a 3D knob but I can not make it spin. I have used the same code on other knobs and they spin when I click on them, what am I doing wrong this time? <Element> <Position X="18" Y="86" /> <Image Name="Spd.bmp" Luminous="No" PointsTo="North" > <Axis X="9" Y="8"...

    Thank you for your help, I have figured it out now.....the needle is moving. Next step is, simulating hypoxia if the oxygen is depleted. Thanks again, John

    FSX Stop the timer!

    Do I need a UPDATE section like I did for the I don't want flashing text! or will the timer automatically start subtracting from (L:OxygenTime_9, hours) when I have assigned a value of 1.000 to (L:OxygenTime_9, hours) and the switch is turned? John

    FSX Fuel problem....

    Thanks for the info but I already know that fuel is needed for taxi, climb, cruise, descent, holds, reach your alternate and extra 45 or 30min depending on IFR or VFR flight. ;) The fuel burn figures at sea level are unavailable, I guess that is included in seperate fuel charts or something...

    FSX Stop the timer!

    I am trying to countdown on the oxygen use starting when the Oxygen select knob is, ">" greater than position, "1" and I intend for the needle to move for 9 hours then stop moving (that is the approx. actiontime of the airplane with full fuel tanks) When the oxygen select knob is in the, "0"...

    FSX XML Button

    Hello Karol, I only have the following code for you. I am not sure if this is what you want but if you press the button it will count backwards and then start over again in a continous loop. <MouseArea id="DN Button"> <FloatPosition>197.000,327.000</FloatPosition>...

    FSX Stop the timer!

    Hello again Bob, Do you suggest that I use Absolute time instead of Local time? Can I just change the (P:Local time,minutes) to Absolute time and that will work or do I have to re-work the code entirely? John

    FSX Fuel problem....

    Hello, I may be stupid but can anyone tell me if this is really correct? I am looking in the Falcon 50 POH and it says that the FF (lb / hr) is 606 at a certain weight and temprature. The total usable amount of fuel is 15,514 lbs. That would mean that I could fly for 25 hours!?!? 15,514...

    FSX Stop the timer!

    Howdy again, I have a new little problem to solve involving a oxygen gauge and I have been trying various code but to no avail.

    FSX I don't want flashing text!

    :D Hello again Tom, I managed to get it all to work now. I just changed the 1 to a 0 below so that the alignment begun when I twisted the knob from 0 to 1: <Update id="Update"> <Script> (P:ABSOLUTE TIME, minutes) (L:Inertial Data Align, minutes) > (L:Inertial Data,number) 1 >...

    FSX I don't want flashing text!

    It did not work....the gauge did not load at all. I think we should focus on this line: <Macro id="NavrdyTimer" Name="NavrdyTimer"> <MacroValue>(L:Navrdy,bool) 1 == (P:Local Time,seconds) 1 * 20 % near if{ 1 } els{ 0 } ! </MacroValue> </Macro> How do I keep the Macro...

    FSX I don't want flashing text!

    :twocents: I tried your method but the Nav Rdy text showed right away when I switched on the system. I do not want the Nav Rdy text to be turned off again after 10 min. it should remain lit after the alignment is finished. In other words, I want the Nav Rdy text to show 10 minutes after I have...

    FSX I don't want flashing text!

    I am trying to create a Lasertrack system and there is a Knob on this panel (L:Inertial Data,number) that you can twist from off 0 == to align 1 == and then nav 3 == or att 4 ==. Just like a INS alignment system. When I twist the knob from off 0 == to align 1 == there is a small display at the...

    FS2004 Interesting problem, annunciator for landing gear lights

    Maybe you can post some photos, it will be easier to understand the movement of it all if you do. It can be that you may need a black mask or shadow behind the lights as well so that they switch color at the appropriate time. It may not be the programming. Just a thought, I am far from an...
