I'd love to know how you did this Edmundo. Is there any chance you could post it here?I'd also like to know if it's possible to insert the guage into the VC somewhere like the B1900 (perhaps the radio panel). Any ideas?Thanks!

Hi,i already know the exact position, i just can't get the "1" simicon proper resized (to the size of the wxr button) and transparent. Can you tell me how you managed to get the simicon invisible/transparent? I would like to integrate this ;-)Thanks !regardsjanosch

It's very simple mate... Just open 1.bmp file with PaintBrush for example, paint all the small square in BLACK color, after save it in the same .BMP format. And zip it already to .cab extension Then you have it done... Please post urgently the exactly position :-8

Instructions to add the RealityXP Wx500 weather radar on the PMDG B737NG.Following these instructions you will be able to open the Wx500 using the weather icon in the main 737NG panel (look for the tooltip "Weather Radar") and close it by mouse clicking at the radar centre.I used this modification in FS2004 only but see no reason for not working in FS2002.1) Make a backup copy of your PMDGB737-700 panel.cfg located in directory "panel".

He did ..Its :gauge24=cpt.icons!500_T, 379,488,19,16I tried it it works nice. You don't see any Simicon, just press the WXR button of PMDG.It would be nice if we could have the same button enabled in the Zoom view panel.Kyprianos Biris :-cool[link:avsim.com/greece/hvacc]Hellenic vACChttp://vateud.org/images/vatsim-eurs.gifhttp://vatsim.pilotmedia.fi/statusindicato...tor=OD1&a=a.jpg

Hi Dirk,i don't know how the Reality XP guys did this but i have exactthe same frames with the wx500 as without. I tried with the PMDG 1900 and several other aircrafts and i have no measurable fps impact when the wx500 is visible and switched on!It's really impressive.regardsjanosch
