Using Flightdeck SFX Panel

Recommended Posts

Hi,I've just installed Marcus Thompson's excellent sound fx program on the 737NG 700(following Timothy Metzinger's appendix to his advanced 737NG tutorial) and, while it works fine in the 2D cockpit version, I cannot get it to work properly on the 2D panel of the VC version. For some reason, only part of the panel loads, that is, no ON lights, no titles, and the panel overall is dark and muddy. The sounds will play, but it has caused FS to crash(once, anyway!). I am wondering if anyone else is using it and can suggest what the problem might be? (Incidentally, I also have Rob Barendregt's groundhandling gauges installed, but I don't think there is a conflict, as the 2D panel versions happily cohabit :-)).I would be grateful for any advice or experiences with this fine add-on which adds significantly to the immersive feel of flying the 737NG.BR,Frank

You need to copy FDSFX.bmp to the panel.VC directory and then you should get the background.Hamish BlackallP.S. I have the icon placed on the 2D panel but I am wondering if it is possible to place it on the vc as I have to keep switching back to the 2D panel to click on the SFX icon.

And...it works!!Perfect! Many thanks, Hamish!As far as I know, you cannot add gauges to the VC panel...but I'll probably turn out to be wrong. :-)BR,Frank
