BertJust a quick hello. It's been a couple of years since you helped me with my Reality XP gauges (2004). I see you are still helping out the community and will be using your feedback when I purchase this FSX B58(want to wait for the first SP). Hope all is well.Bob Goodwin

If you only have one 430, you can cover up the second one by using rxpgns!plate instead of rxpgns!gns430_2Not sure what you mean by altitude adjustments... if it is the autopilot, there is a more capable autopilotavailable (PM me with your email address..)Transponder and audio panel come with the GNS package, so yes, that should work.

Thanks for all your help Bert! I've used many of your suggestions for other Carenado aircraft, and I appreciate all the contributions that you have made.

 

I was going to install the dual rxp430's in my Baron, but I don't understand how to choose the no 3d option for the config. Is it a setting in the RXP config, or is it a change in the panel config? Thanks in advance.

Shift-3 to pop up the Controls panel.

 

If you want to turn off the knobs automatically at startup,

you need to add a little XML gauge, like:

 

<Gauge Name="Control_init" Version="1.0">

<!-- No 3d Knobs -->
   
<Element>
     <Select>
      <Value>
          (L:Init3d,bool) 1 != if{
            1 (>L:3DKNOBSBOOL,bool)   
            1 (>L:Init3d,bool)
                             }      
      </Value>      
     </Select>
   </Element>
</Gauge>

I can not get the RXP GPS to work in this aircraft. The 2d pop up and VC 3d are both covered with a multicolor graphic with the RXP Logo over it and I can not get it to turn on and the click spots are not recognized. This is the only aircraft this happens on

Do you possibly have a GNS 530 installed, and are you now trying to run a GNS 430?

 

The 430 is a separate purchase..

Hmmm. That maybe why. I thought my purchase was the 430/530 and it had options for the 430 so it is highly possible

Must documentation is for both units then. I am 100% sure it is an error on my part. I'll check in a bit

You are a genius. That was the problem. I guess I was very confused and thought I had both and tried to install a 430. All I had to do was change the 430 to a 530 in the CFG

How Do I add this gauge to other aircraft?  I have the Carenado 172N on floats and it has the old school radios.  Is there away that I can remove those radios from the panel.cfg and add the RXP530 to it?

Is is different for every aircraft... for the older releases, you can sometimes change the VC and it will work.

 

For the newer releases, Carenado uses 3d modeling in the cockpit and the user cannot change it.

 

Try editing the panel.cfg file, replacing the radios by an rxp gns gauge and see what happens..

 

It is mostly trial and error, I am afraid.

 

You can always go the popup route..

Ya I can get the radios to remove but the 3d knobs remain and the GPS does not show up in the VC. It is working great in the baren fyi. Thanks for your help
