Weather Radar In Wilco A320 series

Recommended Posts

Guest MLL

Hi All,I'm just rediscovering how much I enjoyed this plane - and also the bits that are missing which would add to that enjoyment.I have the Wilco 737 which has weather radar and wonder if there is any way to get this to show up in the ND on wilco's A320, I didn't think it was possible to do this sort of thing until I found this - http://www.mythicali...ather-radar.phpas the title suggests this puts a weather radar in the PMDG 737 VC and 2D - anyone clever enough to work out how this may be done in the Wilco A320?? I don't have the knowledge thats for sure!!Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm away from a PC for the weekend so won't be able to post any replies etc - would be great if someone could have a go at this as.All the best,Martin

Note:I misread the query posting. I leave this up so you can see in part how involved this is detecting the panel arrangement, installing clickable transparent spots such as over the WXR button on the EFIS control module, etc.-------------------I have it working with an earlier version of the WX500. Some have got it working by editing the version number in NDWX.ini as follows:[GENERAL] WX500=5.2.0.0 NG737=1.0.0.0 CONSOLE=0 [WX500_STD.5.2.0.0] RDR_HIDE=1 RDR_DISABLE_MOUSE_RECT=1 [WX500_STD.1.0.0.0] RDR_HIDE=1 RDR_DISABLE_MOUSE_RECT=1 [WX500_MEM.5.2.0.0] RDR_STATUS=0x15C2E8 RDR_TILT=0x15C2D8 RDR_BRIGHTNESS=0x15C2D0 RDR_GAIN=0x15C2C0 RDR_RANGE_COEF=0x15C2EC RDR_RANGE=0x15C300 RDR_MODE=0x15C308 [WX500_MEM.1.0.0.0] RDR_STATUS=0x15BFE4 RDR_TILT=0x15BFF0 RDR_BRIGHTNESS=0x15BFF8 RDR_GAIN=0x15C000 RDR_RANGE_COEF=0x15C010 RDR_RANGE=0x15C018 RDR_MODE=0x15C01C [WX500_MCB.5.2.0.0] RDR_STATUS=0x00000C RDR_GAIN=0x8 RDR_BRIGHTNESS=0x4 RDR_TILT=0x10 RDR_RANGE_INC=0x2C RDR_RANGE_DEC=0x30 [WX500_MCB.1.0.0.0] RDR_STATUS=0x00000F RDR_GAIN=0xB RDR_BRIGHTNESS=0x07 RDR_TILT=0x13 RDR_RANGE_INC=0x2F RDR_RANGE_DEC=0x33 [NG737_STD.1.0.0.0] EFIS_HIDE=0 EFIS_DISABLE_MOUSE_RECT=0 EFISDISPLAY_HIDE=0 EFISDISPLAY_DISABLE_MOUSE_RECT=0 EFISDISPLAY_LIST=ND 1,ND VC,ND POPUP,ND ZOOM,ND VC FO,ND APP EFISDISPLAY_POPUP_IDENT=0x283E [NG737_MEM.1.0.0.0] EFISDISPLAY=0x184 EFISDISPLAY_BRIGHTNESS=0xF4 CISFD=0xC4 EFIS_MODE=0x90 EFIS_CTR=0x94 EFIS_RANGE=0x98 EFIS_WXR=0xA0 EFISDISPLAY_GETCLASS_PROC=0x170 THEREGISTAR_CLASSLIST=0x120 [NG737_MCB.1.0.0.0] EFISDISPLAY_BRIGHTNESS_INC=0x1 EFISDISPLAY_BRIGHTNESS_DEC=0x2 EFISDISPLAY_POPUP=0x4 EFIS_MODE_INC=0xD EFIS_MODE_DEC=0xE EFIS_CTR=0xF EFIS_RANGE_INC=0x10 EFIS_RANGE_DEC=0x11 EFIS_WXR=0x15 [NG737_ORD.1.0.0.0] THEAIRAC=0xDF THEAIRCRAFT=0xE0 THEREGISTAR=0xE3 EFISDISPLAY_RIGHTCLICK=0xC6 I have the four PMDG 737NG versions with the 1.3 patch installed so the panels for all four use the 800/900 for the 600/700.To find out which version of the WX500 you are using locate the gauge and right click on it.I assume you have the radar installed on a default aircraft to try so you can insure it works outside of this PMDG problem.
