RXP 430 fix

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

Does anyone yet have a fix which allows the RealityXP GNS430 to actually show the screen of the unit in the VC. Currently the screen just stays back, and the GPS is only useable in the 2D popup.

 

Cheers!

No, not that I'm aware of. Lack of developer support has made this aircraft a non-starter for me.

This will overlay the RXP screen in the VC. The button clickspots will also work and just about line up, the knobs are another matter - they are offset above and outboard of the VC ones, but do work.

 

Backup panel.cfg then change the following line in [Vcockpit01]

 

gauge00=CarenadoG430_3D_PAC404!GNS430_nc1,  0,  0,512,256

 

to

gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS430,  -26,  -12,550,256

 

(or comment out the original line and add the new one -

 

//gauge00=CarenadoG430_3D_PAC404!GNS430_nc1,  0,  0,512,256
gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS430,  -26,  -12,550,256

 

whichever works for you!)

 

If you want to change the GPS popup for the RXP, I have altered [Window01] to

 

[Window01]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=512,260
visible=0
ident=10010
window_size= 0.305, 0.235
window_pos= 0.690, 0.040
no_luminous=1
zorder=7

//gauge00=CarenadoG430_3D_PAC404!GNS430_nc1,  0,0,500,266
gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS430,  0,0,512,260
gauge01=PAC404!ToggleCAR430,     64, 0,384, 32

 

 

If you have the Saratoga II TC you can use the same method to get the RXP430 in the cockpit with the 530.

Doesn't seem to work with me, the screen stays black

Firstly, I havent run the Alabeo exe for installing the RXP stuff - just modify the panel cfg for the vanilla C404. Secondly, its not perfect - the 3D knobs get in the way and still show the original clickspots. Make sure you use the RXP pink hand symbol, not the default FSX white one to activate the knobs etc.

 

I used the RXP panel config utility to add a popup for the 430 as well and generally use that (with my eyesight and the button/text size in the VC viewpoint I find it easier, if a little less 'realistic').

Still no "official " service pack fix. I'm surprised because they still advertise the RXP integration on their site. Isn't that false advertising ?

Should have come here first and saved 50 bucks. :mad:  It's the end for me as far as buying furture Alabeo/Carenado products.

It is.

Their screenshots show no RXP integration in the VC. So what does that tell you?
