Disable blinking MSG on default FSX GPS500...?

Recommended Posts

Guest

I would like to remove the blinking MSG on the default FSX GPS500. It's annoying to see that thing blink all the time (and having to press it to see useless information).YES, I KNOW that you can turn that blinking off ingame by pressing and holding the MSG button, but for some odd reason it doesn't work like that in the Katana 4x (on my PC anyway). I already looked into the fs9gps.cab but can't figure out what takes care of that blinking MSG... Of course I already asked this on the Aerosoft support forum, but they don't seem to read the Katana forum over there.Does anyone here knows what exactly takes care of that blinking so I can get rid of it once and for all?

I did this surgery for the Lionheart G1000...Opened up the cab file, found the messaging section and deleted it from top to bottom.Keep a backup! XML code is quite unforgiving!

I would start by searching for<!-- check MSG button --> (@g:msgButtonDown) 0 != if{ (@g:msgButtonCount) ++ d (>@g:msgButtonCount) @MSGButtonDelay == if{ @MSGToggle } } 1 (>@g:messagesOff)and add the bold line (after the } bracket! )That should do it.If that does not fix it, find:<On Event="GPS_MSG_BUTTON">@MSGButton</On> and delete that line.

Happy it worked!Just for the heck of it, I'm going to try to write a little gauge thatturns off the button from outside the GPS gauge - that may or may not work..But if it does, it takes away the need to edit one of the FSX default gauges..
