Help with panel loading

Recommended Posts

Hello,I've just recently installed the panel and all applicable patches and no matter what I do, I can't get the panel to load.Every time I load a plane it has no panel. I've verified the path is correct in the panel.cfg, all the files are in the fsconv.B732ADV folder... the DLL's are where they're supposed to be... it's quite maddening.Any suggestions as to what would cause this?

The default flight is enabled with the cessna and when I load the aircraft there is no listings at all in the view...instrument panel section in the title bar.It's acting like it has no panel alias... like the folder doesn't exist.

Yes, the file path is:F:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesFlight Simulator 9Aircraftfsfsconvpanel.B732ADVand the panel.cfg is as follows:(fltsim)alias=fsfsconvpanel.B732ADV

Howard,That is your problem. You don't have the correct panel.cfg file. Re-install the Tinmouse II and run the patches, or copy and paste the following in the panel.cfg file. delete the (fltsim) and alias=fsfsconvpanel.B732ADV lines. Replace each opening parentheses with a left bracket.// Panel configuration file.// Boeing 737-200 for FS2004// Copyright © 2005 Richard Probst.// Modifications by Bob Scott// Released under the

hi there,i've already posted it - but i'm quite happy that i'm not the only one with this problem. i have the very same gauge problem - and nothing helps. i installed several times, used all patches, but nothing works, even the posted cfg doesnt helps....but you should note that its impossible to load the plane - everytime i try i get a message by the fs that there is a problem with the gauge file - and than its over with the fs. would be great to get the bird :(
