Losing your EADI/EHSI in flight

Recommended Posts

If you have my gauge mods installed, and you lose your primary instruments when crossing a time zone boundary, contact me, and I'll send you a fix.

 

If you do not have my mods installed, this does not apply.

 

The underlying problem is that Carenado uses "local time" as a reference for the timers in the airplane, which runs into problems when FSX resets local time.. ie when crossing a time zone boundary.

 

Unfortunately, my attempted fix does not work, so the existing workaround is actually better.

 

If you are comfortable editing xml files, you can open the Gauge_Update.xml file in the GaugePC12 folder, search for "disable" and edit as follows:

 

Remove  <!-- disable .......-->

 

So

<!-- disable        
(L:ASD_SWITCH_EFIS_POWER_TIMER, number) (P:local time, seconds) - abs 22 > if{ (P:local time, seconds) 23 - (>L:ASD_SWITCH_EFIS_POWER_TIMER, number)    }  -->

becomes

(L:ASD_SWITCH_EFIS_POWER_TIMER, number) (P:local time, seconds) - abs 22 > if{ (P:local time, seconds) 23 - (>L:ASD_SWITCH_EFIS_POWER_TIMER, number)    }

I tried that, but there are dependencies coded in the model itself, so I gave up..

 

I did do it for the transponder, since it operates on its own..
