Reality XP WX500 and PMDG Merge not Working

Recommended Posts

I have the WX500 weather radar 5.2 and the PMDG 737-700 V1.3. I am trying to merge them, but when I load the selected aircraft it crashes to desktop. I've looked in all forums for help, but nothing worked for me. My NDWX. ini file is in my FS9 Root folder and the NDWX. gau is in the gauge folder. In the General Section of the .ini it has. [GENERAL] WX500=5.2.0.0 NG737=1.0.0.0 CONSOLE=0 Is there something that I'm missing in my Panel.VC cfg? I followed the instructions carefully. ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // // PMDG 737-600/700 VC COCKPIT

Are you using 5.2? I tried that one too and it didn't work for me. It happens when i put the addon NDWX gauge in the guages file. Does this problem have to do with the Active Sky radar?
No Active sky radar is based in your modules folder .The problem lies in which version of the weather radar you have .To quote Jean Luc at reality
There is a great chance it does not work from version to version because changes happens in our products, and since this "bridge program" works like a hack in the Wx500 and the 737 gauges, it fails in this case.Hope this helps!Jean-Luc

Is it possible to downgrade the version of the weather radar?

I found out it works, only if I load and start my flight up with the Cessna. How can I make it load from the main screen?

Can someone send please me a working copy of their Panel.VC file? I would appreciate it very much.

Hi there, For anyone who is interested I've managed to get the Reality XP WX500 weather radar merged with my PMDG 737/800 also running FS2Crew and all works perfectly.After searching the internet for any info on this subject I came across loads of dead links and loads of confusing instructions etc.It seemed I had the same problem as many in that I had recently downloaded v5.2.1 of the WX500 and seemed to struggle to get it to work. I am currently running the same version (5.2.1 which is working)!! My NDWX file in FS9 root directory reads Version 5.2.0.0, but when running flightsim and checking in the tab bar and going to the 'About' tab on RXP it reads 5.2.1 ??Anyway after days of messing around I managed to get it working but came across another problem........my FS2Crew was no longer available. (click spots dissapeared on MIP) Arrggghhhh!!!I seemed to remember that when FS2crew is installed it changes the original panel.cfg file to incorporate the new click sopts etc on the PMDG panel. Anyway I finally managed to get FS2crew and WX500 working together in my PMDG 737/800 after fettling with my panel.cfg file :-)For anyone who would like to try the same method without getting stressed trying to edit files etc I would be happy to send a copy of my panel.cfg to try out if you PM your email address. I have a copy of the file with and without FS2crew.I can also provide screenshots of all three programs in action together if required :-) Happy flying.

I am currently running the same version (5.2.1 which is working)!! My NDWX file in FS9 root directory reads Version 5.2.0.0, but when running flightsim and checking in the tab bar and going to the 'About' tab on RXP it reads 5.2.1 ??Anyway after days of messing around I managed to get it working but came across another problem........my FS2Crew was no longer available. (click spots dissapeared on MIP) Arrggghhhh!!!I seemed to remember that when FS2crew is installed it changes the original panel.cfg file to incorporate the new click sopts etc on the PMDG panel. Anyway I finally managed to get FS2crew and WX500 working together in my PMDG 737/800 after fettling with my panel.cfg file :-)For anyone who would like to try the same method without getting stressed trying to edit files etc I would be happy to send a copy of my panel.cfg to try out if you PM your email address. I have a copy of the file with and without FS2crew.I can also provide screenshots of all three programs in action together if required :-) Happy flying.
Having the same prob, can you help me out?Ntsbasi@gmail.comJason
