The captain sim weather gauge now workable in P46

Recommended Posts

Thanks to the help from our resident guru, Bert Pieke, I have been able to get the captain sim weather gauge to work pretty good with the cockpit model and I also now have the Carenado weather gauge modeled "OFF/STBY/TEST/ON/ knob" to work with the "captain sim weather gauge"The rest of the clickspots of the CS gauge have been moved a bit around to work with the "carenado model faceplate clickspots" as that is part and parcel of the 3d model, so what you see if the outer casing of the weather instrument with the "brain" being the "Captain sim Weather gauge/screen"Unfortunately I cannot share the Weather gauge itself as it is payware, so if you have it, you more then welcome to PM me for the interface gauge that make the gauge work with the knobs etc and for instructions on how to add the "CS weather gauge" into the PA46T.2012-1-20_17-19-36-280.jpg

It is not really just a matter of panel.cfg entries because we work here with a gauge being added to a modeled area, and not the normal gauge replacement process that you can add the gauge to a flat surface. You can if you want to but all clickspots will be wayyyyy wrong, eg the on of on CS is left bottom and the Carenado is top right.so send me a PM with an email and I will send you the instructions as well as the intermediate gauge to have the on/off knob work with the CS gauge as well as fixing the clickspots to be alligned with the Carenado weather case/buttons.but if you really just want the panel.cfg entries I will post them for you but it will not make any sense as I said no clickspots will line up properly but if you want to live with that it is ok

INSTRUCTIONS--------------------Download the intermediate gauge (faceplate gauge) called "Captain_Sim.r001.P04_ADJMAL.cab" from below link and save the file to any place on your computor.(Please NOTE: this gauge do NOT contain the Captain Sim Weather gauge and it will NOT work unless you already have the captain sim weather gauge installed)http://www.mediafire...6aj8o77cwlo6hu0DO NOT FURTHER extract this file. It is already a .cab file and already in the correct format.Now Cut and paste the downloaded file "Captain_Sim.r001.P04_ADJMAL.cab" and add it to the Malibu's "panel" folder.Now open the panel folder of the Malibu.Search for the panel.cfg.NB. make a copy of this file and save it as panel_original.cfg so that you have a backup to restore to incase you mess up the panel.cfg file that you now will adjust.Open the panel.cfg file with notepadScroll down till you find [Vcockpit01] sectionNow add gauge10 entry so that your Vcockpit01 look like this after the change

Remember that you replace the XX with your next window number and add this section just before the [Vcockpit01] section.Also remember to add the window under the [Window Titles] section below the last listed window. It must contain the same number as the XX you replaced it with.

THANKS! I just started working on this last night, but i was thinking that i would be fiorced to use the 2D pop-up since i wasn't prepared to make the faceplate! Very cool! CS radar works so much better with AS2012!K

2D panel with same faceplate as Carenado Weather panel now available.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Download the intermediate gauge (faceplate gauge) called "Captain_Sim.r001.P04_ADJMAL2D.cab" from below link and save the file to any place on your computor.(Please NOTE: this gauge do NOT contain the Captain Sim Weather gauge and it will NOT work unless you already have the captain sim weather gauge installed)http://www.mediafire...dxg697ctjedk4ytDO NOT FURTHER extract this file.

Replace the XX in the [windowXX] wth the next window number available (if you have not yet added windows , standard it would then be "Window08"Now scroll up to the top and find the [Window Titles] sectionAlso add the window you have added below to this section. if your window was called [window08] the add a window08 as below

[Window Titles]Window00=G500Window01=Toggle_ManualWindow02=Toggle_ControlWindow03=GP530Window04=GP430Window05=GP530XPWindow06=GP430XPWindow07=INFOWindow08=CSWeathergauge

Your popup panel should now look like this.2012-1-21_16-51-50-608.jpgNOTE:If you rather prefer to have the 2D drive the OFF/STBY/TEST/ON and not the VC knob just do not add the entry to the [Vcockpit01] section as instructed in POST 4.Just remember then that the VC knob will not work anymore. All other clickspots will work in vc except the ON/OFF/STBY knob.So either you drive the gauge from the 2D panel or from the VC panel. Choice is yours. all done with the Vcockpit01 entry.. by either adding it or omitting it
