As every aircraft is different and based on the aircraft config I am trying to figure out how to get it close to...

    I am currently working on a C++ gauge with Doug that involves an autopilot. Although most of this portion is completed and working as expected, there seems to be an issue between the gauge input versus the display on the panel (via an xml gauge) with regards to the MACH variable . When the...

    FSX Highlighting Text in C++

    Hello all, I have been working (more to the point "Learning") with Doug Dawson on a ELT/Direction Finding Receiver to learn C++ coding. It is really exciting to what we have managed to achieve with C++ over XML (truthfully would be hard pressed to go back due to limitations of XML) and I believe...

    I need a nudge in the right direction

    Hello Swift39. I can't tell but did you get your alternate airport to work? Have you looked at F111's DAT49? I must be honest, I gleaned much from F111 Dat49.xml. I do not know from whom he learned but he did a great job of adding an airport. I didn't really need the military look so I made an...

    Continueing to work through some issues and was wondering if any one knows if it is possible to have the gps (aka my gauge) automatically assume the departure airport is where the aircraft is, without filling a flight plan. I am thinking it would be nice if I spawn at CYCW, can the gauge...

    Ok, windling down the known issues (Stress the Known). I have been working on the Nearest Airport Page function. It is not operating the way I intended it. It took a long time for me with the patience of rpmc, n4gix and taquilo to even get this going and now after at least fourteen hours of...

    Just me again.... I have created another map in my gauge to mimick the FSX Map feature. All it does is display airports, NDB's and VOR's. I applied the panning code and after some grief with it flipping the map, got it working to where it will pan. The issue... you hit one of the pan buttons...
