iFly 747-400 Auropilot Indicators

Recommended Posts

Suddenly, I have a failure. Did not previously have it.The Autopilot IAS, Heading, and Altitude indicators are frozen. I can not change them with mouse clicks.The mouse clicks work on all other items in the cockpit.Does anyone have an idea of what might be wrong?

Did you ever fix this problem with the iFly panel? (I ask in the hope you subscribed to the thread and will see my question!).I get the same thing now, having installed the iFly Service Pack 3. Changing back to the previous gauge file cures the problem, but it would be better to get the new .gau file to work as I suppose I am missing out on other 'fixes' by going back to the older one..Martin

Hi. Yes, I know that line, electrics_always_available=1 - in fact, I added it to a cfg file just the other day to fix another problem (though it sadly didn't actually fix it on that occasion!). I can try putting the new iFly "SP3" gau file back and add the line to the aircraft.cfg file to see if it helps.Thanks,M.

No, that didn't work. Seems a bit pointless providing a service pack that adds new problems! I've restored the old gauge file and things are OK again..M.
