The Eagle has landed - Service release available

Recommended Posts

Immediately downloaded the patch for my favorite airplanein FS2002. Also immediately found a bug. Note the attached.The radios dont size properly. This is probably a quickfix in the panel.cfg but I dont know how to do it.Erichttp://www.aluminumcloud.com/fs2002/421bug.gifEric

I just downloaded the service release and found the stack to be ok, could already have been fixed?Copy and past this to your panel.cfg, below window01:file=CommPanelBG.bmp size_mm=399,264window_size_ratio=1.000 position=2visible=0ident=RADIO_STACK_PANELgauge00=C421NJ1!AUD, 0, 2, 399, 76gauge01=C421NJ1!AP, 16, 77, 368, 86gauge02=C421NJ1!XPN, 13, 161, 376, 103The flight director works great, just shot an ILS approach into EDDV in a quarter mile vis and 12 knots crosswind. At DH I was in a good landing position, landed spot on.Best Regards, Uwe

Uwe or anyone else,Were you able to access the ADF needle by clicking on the HSI glass? When I do that I get the expanded instrument view and nothing more. I'm quite sure this is one of those dumb things I'm doing wrong but at least I read the README file this time! Thanks!David

Are you loading up a flight that was previously saved with the 421 as its aircraft? If so, it may be loading the window configurations and sizes as they were saved in the flight, before the patch was applied. Try loading the default flight at Miegs with the 172 (or is it the 182? no matter) and then load up the 421.Let us know if that helps,jkvato1.jpg

It's a right-click! I knew it was something stupid! Please disregard!David

After installing the service pak, it appears that many of the top row of gauges in the VC cockpit are back to 512,512 pixels instead of the 1024,1024 option which made them much clearer. I'll need to run back through the archives to see exactly what panel file needed the changes, unless someone has info here.L.Adamson

I think it is pixel_size( in the panel.cfg ) - there are 2 or locationswhere it it listed.//--------------------------------------------------------//------------------- VIRTUAL COCKPIT 1 ------------------//--------------------------------------------------------[Vcockpit01]Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=1024,1024visible=0window_size=1.000, 1.000pixel_size=1024,1024texture=$VCockpit_1window_pos=0.000, 0.000- Myles

Yes, I couldn't find the exact post in the archives, so between a number of hints in several postings, I changed to 1024,1024 on VC cockpits 1,2,&3. The last two were for 256,256 which I left alone. At least it worked!L.Adamson

Did anybody ever solve Eric's original problem? I loaded the updated Eagle today and had the exact same problem with the radio stack. Panel.cfg looks OK and I created a new flight using the updated 421.Any ideas?
