    P3D v4 Shift and Rotation on Image causes wild distortion

    I'm new to XML gauge design, but this one has me completely stumped. I have an ADI bitmap for an electronic flight display. If I apply a Shift (or variable vertical FloatPosition) for pitch, no problem. As soon as I add a rotation for bank though, I get bizarre distortion that happens with or...

    P3D v4 What language to use?

    I could use some input. Years ago I created the FDSFX panel for sound effects controlled from inside the cockpit. A simple 2D panel where the simmer flips a switch and an audio recording would play. Right-clicking on the switch would give options such as auto-repeat, volume control and...

    DLL-powered-gauges vrs XML-powered-gauges

    With the recent news that P3D and FSW are "going 64-bits" and the changes in their support of (64-bits) add-ons I was wondering: "What are the technical and internal differences between DLL-powered gauges vrs XML-powered-gauges" What i've learned myself so far is that: A - DLL-powered-gauges...

    Request help with FSX/P3D toggle gauges and tooltips.

    Hi, I've been making a few XML gauges and am stuck on a few things. Understanding the differences of the old types vs new types is obviously confusing to a noob. I've been able to accomplish maybe 80% of what I've wanted but am stuck on a few items, mainly 3 separate things. #1 - I want to...

    Hello, community. I was trying to modify an aircrat's flight dynamics so it would be able to pitch down once thrust is cut during the flare. Unfortunately, i wasn't able to achieve the desired effect. I then decided to cheat fsx by creating a lua or a gauge that will trim nose down by several...

    Hi, I start leaning xml as used in the fsx gauges and I have a few questions. 1. Can someone tell me what the scope is of the goto/jump and quit statements? Meaning are they only active within element, select or value or even in the whole gauge? 2. I have a third party addon that is reacting...

    FSX Park brake set and Signs on

    Hi, as I cannot convince FSX with any trick to start the simulation with Park brake set and Signs on, I like to create a gauge that does it in all planes. Unfortunately, I could not find any key that commands what I want. (>K:PARKBRAKE_SET), (>K:SIGNS_ON), (>K:NO_SMOKING_ON) (>K:SEATBELT_ON)...

    Hi there, Is there a way to read the latitude and longitude of the tuned NDB through execute_calculator_code or similar, without going through simconnect? The simulation variables documentation lists "ADF LATLONALT:index" but I can't seem to make it work using execute_calculator_code(). is there...
