Hello Dave,

I'm sure we can get this working with FSX for you. But, let's take the discussion out of the gauges forum and into a 'Conversation' using Inbox - Start a new conversation.

Thanks,

Bob

Hello,
I have managed to get GE View 2 working in both FSX-SE and P3DV4.2; however, I am running into a display problem with Google Earth Pro.
GE displays the sky as night all the time.
I have no clue why this is or how to change it so that the sky is blue (daylight)
I have attached an image showing what I am seeing.

Thanks for you time and help.

Hi Darryl:

1.) Google Earth Menu > Tools > Options > {3D View tab} > check "Use photo-realistic Atmosphere rendering (EXPERIMENTAL)

2.) Google Earth Menu > View > check "Atmosphere"

Hope this helps ! :)

Hello
GE View worked perfectly until the end of 2017 and then did not work anymore.
I tried to reinstall the latest version using Google Earth proxy 1.3.
I set windows Region to english format to avoid GPS errors.
I have installed HttpX.dll and XMLTools in modules folder.
I have edited dll.xml
I have installed compound-rotation.xml and set panel config for GE View in an aircraft.
I first execute Prepr3d v3 and open an aircraft on an airfield
Whenever I execute Eathproxy/Start/Open KML file, Googlearth opens then runs the klm files, the earth begins to rotate and then stops over france?
I am unable to couple GE with my Prepar3d scenery?
Can you help me?
Best
Alain

Hi Bob,
i tried several time to understand and modify the Compound_Rotation.

I try to use AirCreation in p3d v4 i put in the panel.cfg

[Window05]
position=0
size_mm=110,90
visible=1
window_size_ratio=1.00
gauge00=GEVIEW!Compound_Rotation, 0, 0, 110, 90


but this line need to create a cab file with GEVIEW name otherwise it not ready correctly.
I create it and in pv4 remain every black. I dont know why. procedure is perfect:

I have installed HttpX64.dll in modules folder and XMLTools vith installer in p3d main folder.
I have edited dll.xml
I have installed compound-rotation.xml and set panel config for GE View in an aircraft.
I first execute Prepr3d v3 and open an aircraft on an airfield
Whenever I execute Eathproxy/Start/Open KML file, Googlearth opens then runs the klm files: the earth not rotate and
I am unable to couple GE with my Prepar3d scenery?


Many thanks,
Simone

Hello All,

First time on FSDeveloper. Simming since Mac SE and coding since 1969, but never put the two
together, until now.

I love GE view. In 3d areas, it is simply the best, most realistic scenery for low-and-slow VFR I have seen.
My problem is I would like to pan the view while flying with it, but I am still using an ancient, game-port,
CH Products FlightStick joystick. NO HAT SWITCH!!!

I decided I would read about XMLTools, and XML gagues in general, and then study Compound_Rotation.xml to see if I
could get the panning working with keys mapped to PAN_LEFT, PAN_RIGHT, PAN_UP, and PAN_DOWN events. After
a few fits and starts, I was able to get LEFT and RIGHT working as I wanted (although I still have boundary
conditions to fix, and haven't used postfix since my last HP calculator in 1979!!)

However, I have had no such success with PAN_UP and PAN_DOWN. I have tried the -90 to +90 and 0 to 180 coordinate
systems, all to no avail. And the more I studied Compound_Rotation.xml, it seemed like maybe it doesn't support TILT with
the hat switch version, either, since the only assignments to L:SWIVEL CAM TILT are when you go to straight down view and back.

So I am asking the experts on this to answer 2 questions:
1. Does panning up and down work at all, even with a hat switch?
2. If so, what do you think I need to do with L:SWIVEL CAM TILT (or anything else) to get it working through the
key based events?

Thanks very much for any assistance. I will be glad to give back to the community anything I have when finished,
although I am very probably an anachronism, being without a hat swtich.

Hi, new member here. Ran across using Google Earth in Prepar3D and love the idea. I've used FSX Google Earth tracker with no problems but am unable to get the view idea to work. When I use GE view, google earth starts but only goes to the globe view like always and stops. Flight Simulator tracker shows up in the temporary places, but again, no forward view while flying. I've got lots of addon scenery from Orbx and it's ok, but megasceneryearth was great because it was what was really there. It was just a bummer it was flat at VFR flying height. Httpx64 and XMLTools are in place and I modified the dll file to reflect the path. I've even gone so far as to start with the drive letter to make sure the path was there completely. Anyway, any help would be great. Thanks in advance if anyone cares to take the time.

Oh, yeah, what is the kml.xml file that needs to be edited? I don't have one anywhere that I can find.

I found that did have to add the complete path to the dll file to get GE window and the the Flight Simulator Tracker to show up twice like the picture in this thread. What I don't have is the logger, the GE tour. The view on my GE picture is when I double click on the Flight Simulator Tracker under my places. I also am unable to get the XMLTools installer to work. It says I don't have Prepar3D installed. I've put it in the Prepar3D root directory with Prepar3D.exe and it still doesn't see it.

Hi Bob,
I'm using GE_View with P3D-V4 and it works fine.

But would it be possible to change the zoom and tilt of GE either by
a) editing an appropriate file
or even better by
b) key commands inflight?

Regards
Hajo

Hajo,

I have a version that uses key commands. I'll send you a copy via private message in this forum. Check your inbox (upper right corner) but give me a day.
