If Anyone's Interested in Another CRJ Panel.....

Recommended Posts

Greetings,I've been playing with Chris Alevritis' FS2000 CRJ bitmap, and after extensive revisions and new additions, I think it fairly well compliments the new POSKY CRJ (and maintains compatibility with the CRJ VC). Also included are Eric Marciano and Jorge Salas' incredible radar gauge, Ike Slack's very 'slick' Honeywell repackaging of the default GPS, a few files from the good folks at FPDA, and the signs2k gauge by Christian Koegler. This panel uses primarily default gauges (I believe the standard version of 2002 includes the necessary gauges - but since I'm using the pro version, I'm not quite sure). Pete Downson's FSUIPC version 2.83 or later is also needed.I've tried to contact Chris Alevritis for permission to use portions of his bitmap, but with no success - maybe someone here knows of his whereabouts. If I cannot reach him - does anyone know the ramifications of distributing this panel without his consent (I do have all other required permissions - I fully believe)?Anyway, if there's any interest I'll try and upload this thing once its wrapped up - assuming I was even able to attach the pics.Leon Seale

Leon,I would be intersted. Nice update. Hope you are able to contact Chris for upload. Maybe Marco Spada could point you in the right direction. He has an updated version of Chris's panel bitmap on the internet as well. Good luckScott

Looks excellent since I have been w/o a panel since the last upload "Northwest Pkg" panel has a missng part of the MFD and I have written the author 2xs w/o a response on how to get this panel to work. I will look forward to have yours ASAP and I appreciate your time and the fact that you even posted it for our approval.Andy

I like that new radar gauge. I downloaded Marco Spada's remake of that panel and found the GPS was messed up. Don't know if he's fixed it or not; but I redid it with the honeywell gps. Here's the fix if you have the honeywell gps gauge installed:{Window01}Background_color=16,16,16size_mm=512window_size_ratio=1.00 position=0visible=0ident=gps_panelwindow_size= 0.180, 0.310window_pos= 0.460, 0.580gauge00=honeywellgps!gps, 0,-1,512,523

Yes, thanks, it is fixed and it displays in the same place as the radar gauge - in its entirety (isn't that a great repackaging of the gps Ike's done).Leon

I'm trying to remember where I seen that radar gauge. I don't think I have it installed. What's the name of it?? And is it downloadable as a standalone gauge?Also, that is one fantastic panel. Beautiful to look at. I found some wrap around bmps that don't quite fit; but at least they're the same colors.

Thanks,And the radar gauge is available in the file library here as rdrwdw.zip. It is a single gauge and includes some switches and icons. Its one of the best TCAS displays I've seen.Leon

Leon,Looks really good! Maybe, if you contact David Durst, you could use the autopilot panel from his CRJ panel. It looks exactly like the prototype and works just fine with the default Honeywell gauges.

Hi David,Great idea. I looked at that autopilot, and David's AP is a very nicely rendered faceplate (as part of the bitmap) with 14 or so individual gauges placed in windows and on knobs. I will look into that after I get this version out (if I ever get this thing out). Still a little concerned about not finding Chris Alevritis. I know his bitmap has been subsequently released, but this is a complete redressing and I'm not sure of the legalities. His only written comments included keeping his panel freeware, and no distribution on disk or CD without prior permission. Suggestions anyone?Thanks David,Leon

Suggestions anyone? Sounds fairly clear cut to me -- and I say "Go for it!!" :)You have made a "documented" attempt to contact him and you are abiding by his written instructions - who else agrees?Barry

Thanks Barry,I just heard from Marco Spada (who also has a panel out with Chris' bitmap), and he assured me that if it remains freeware, and due credit is given, then all is fine.After a few errands this morning I'll try and upload this thing.Leon

Leon,If you want to have all the buttons on the overhead be the same style (or if you want more options) check out my CPT Toggles/Switches collection.File Library: cptts1.1.zipFrom the readme:"This is a comprehensive set of 13 XML Multi-Gauges with switches and panel toggle buttons for panel designers and advanced users. It includes the updated cpt.icons.cab gauge, which has button toggles for 21 different panel idents, including all the default idents. 12 gauges which cover just about every single switch option available in FS2002. Each gauge performs all the same functions, but has a different switch bitmap. Transparent versions of all the toggles and switches are also included."Thanks for the kind words on the Radar Gauge, Eric did all the work, I just created a "presentable" package and bitmap for his fabulous coding skills. :-)Also, I noticed you are using the default bitmap that was included in the radar package, I could create a "Honeywell" bitmap for the radar gauge, for your panel, that would blend seamlessly into it. All I would need is the bitmap for your panel, which I can get when I download it. :-)BTW - eko = JorgeHehe.http://ftp.avsim.com/library/sendfile.php?SendImage=13244

Jorge,Thanks, I certainly will investigate an update with the cpt.icons.cab gauges. I actually included the archive that you and Eric released containing the cab files as the package was simply too good to break up, serious users need those files anyway. And as for me, I'm way back on the learning curve at this point, so I really appreciate the help and advice coming my way.And yes, a matching Honeywell bitmap for the panel would be GREAT! If you have the time please do so and we can incorporate it any way you see fit. Thanks again.I'm off to try and upload now - never done that before either - so we'll see what happens. It's my intent to upload it as lscrjpnl.zip.Leon

File's in the library as lscrjpnl_105653.zip. Not sure where the _105653 came from, but that's how it is showing up at the moment.Leon

Can somebody tell me where I can get the POSKY CRJ-200 from -- there are plenty of repaints but I can't find the original model -- it doesn't even seem to be at the POSKY website.I did have it after I downloaded the Northwest "package" -- but something was wrong with that package and I deleted it. Thanks Barry

Barry,Try oscr2comairnoc.zip in the library here. There is also a texture fix, and its listed at the download site as well.Leon
