JS4100 Weather Radar Dummy Screen

Recommended Posts

:( JS4100 Weather Radar Blank.Like a lot of people who bought the JS4100, there is no working WXR. So instead of buying more SW I decided to have a go of placing some thing on the blank Honeywell screen when DC power is applied. Its not as good of course as the working Radar, but its to me a lot better than flying the plane with a blank screen. See screen grab of cockpitnew.jpg.I run my system on a 19" screen, so max resolution for me is 1280x1024x32 bit, Vista 64 bit OS with a GF9800GT 1G RAM card, Q6600 2.4G quad core & 4GRAM @ 1333 MHz.You need to amend the panel folder's of the JS4100, by adding these lines to the 3 CFG files to start with. Backup original ones some where safe, just in case some thing goes wrong, etc.1.In panel.CFG & panel_HIDEF.CFG scroll down to the VC SECTION 2 & do as below. //gauge04=rxpWX500!RDR, 532, 528, 472, 331gauge04=cwxr!cwxr_bgnd, 514, 508, 522, 360 2.I have modified the panel.LODEF, but I do not use in low resolution, so have not tried fully. May need some pixel changes to the first 2 sets of numbers for x,y.//gauge04=rxpWX500!RDR, 266, 264, 236, 166gauge04=cwxr!cwxr_bgnd, 266, 264, 236, 1663.Make a folder in panel folder of JS4100, name it cwxr4.Inside this cwxr folder add 2 files scrn_bgnd.bmp & cwxr_bgnd.xml5.As it seems I can't up load the XML or BMP files.This is the code for the XML file<Gauge Name="cwxr_bgnd" Version="A"> <Image Name="scrn_bgnd.bmp" ImageSizes="600,391"/></Gauge>Make a BMP picture from paint of my pattern shown (cockpitnew.jpg) size 600x391 256 colours.Run FSX JS4100 & when you switch on either DC power switches, you will see the view as my screen grab.I am working on a moving dummy weather pattern at present, that is based on a repeated pattern, not great, but when or if I get more time, who knows. See screen grab of pattern.jpg. It works when DC power applied. scrolls from top to bottom, takes about 65 seconds then repeats.Cheers.................

Integrate it in WX screen of BAe with the ability to directly control? (not as additional gauge with hidden clickspot menu zone)

I have made a short video of the static WXR image I created to fit the default blank screen, now at v2.2. If you wish to view follow link to youtube.I whole idea of this was that not every one wants to spend additional money on addon SW, so I just did this to please myself & fill in the blank on the WXR screen.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJKTZCcwudECheers ...........................
