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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
I have a timer, which shows elapsed time since a button was pressed.
Maybe not so simple!
I seem to have made a mess of the logic somewhere.
The code used is this:
(L:StartElapsedTimer,number) 1 ==
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...
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 (>K:AP_VS_VAR_INC)" and "0 (>K:AP_VS_VAR_DEC)" to set the desired rate.
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...
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...
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
I can display Exclamation Mark, Dollar, Hash using 32, 36, 35 but 37 will just not display anything.
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...
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...
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...
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...
