Probs w/ some panels

Recommended Posts

The Carenado Cessna 152 and Kotaro Akikawa's B-52 cause FS02 to crash. I've tried aliasing the Carenado panel to another 152 with no luck. Other planes with "fancy" panels, like the CAE Falcon 50 and the FSD T-38 run just fine. Any ideas? (BTW, running WinXP Pro)

Scan the panel.cfg to seen if any custom gauges are loading.... If your crashes are fairly consistent, you can "comment out" each questionable gauge until you isolate the one causing the trouble, then simply use a substitute from one of FS's stock gauges...-John

Thanks. I looked in the cfg files of all four of those aircraft and one thing I noticed was that the two that didn't work said they'd been built via CfgEdit. Maybe just a coincidence, and maybe the designers of the two that worked just deleted those lines in their cfg files. I've used (the older, freeware vers. of) CfgEdit to modify an FS02 panel or two with success, so that likely isn't the problem.Another thing I noticed using CfgEdit with these panles is that sometimes the gauge "blocks" didn't really fit. E.g., the gear gauge for the B-52 dangled way down beneath the main bitmap. I scrunched them "into place" and the main panel for the B-52 seemed to work (the v-panel was a mess, though). However, I noticed one of the Falcon 50 gauges also "dangled" a little.I'll go back in and start commenting out some custom gauges, the 152 first, as it's a fairly simple panel (and I'm learning to fly in a 150). The B-52's are nearly all custom.
