Problems with G1000 for Citation ISP

Recommended Posts

I have downloaded a Citation ISP airplane (from http://flyawaysimulation.com/) with steam gauges and am trying to redo the panel using the Mindstar G1000 package. The end result is intended to look like http://www.sijet.com/g501sp-glass-cockpit

 

Since this is my first attempt to do anything like this with FSX, I obviously expected some problems and many of them I have overcome. But I have three so far insurmountable. 

 

Although I realize now I should have made a new section in the G1000.ini file I used the Cessna.Mustang section. This section is reproduced below:

 

[Cessna.Mustang]
Style=10
AirspeedRangeLowCaution=90
AirspeedRangeFlaps=100
AirspeedRangeNormal=224
AirspeedRangeHighCaution=275
AirspeedRangeOverspeed=276
AirspeedBugVr=120
AirspeedBugVrVisible=YES
AirspeedBugVxVisible=NO
AirspeedBugVyVisible=NO
AirspeedBugVgVisible=NO
AltimeterBug=3000
AFCS=NO
HobbsCounter=801
TachCounter=801
 
The gauge works but none of the airspeed ranges are drawn on the airspeed strip. The airspeed does function. I am sure this is fairly trivial to solve, but I can't see what is wrong.
 
The second problem is I am using the Cessna/Piper autopilot pad. I already have a window which acts as a popout for the PFD and just clicking on the PFD opens that window. I was assuming the Autopilot would work the same way. But I can't get it to open. Documentation says that for the PFD the ident needs to be 11000 but I can't find an ident for the autopilot. This gauge is defined as follows (note no fifth parameter):
 
gauge03=MPI_G1000!AP_CONTROLLER_CESSNA,  704,603,140,51 
 
The last problem is that the MFD has no controls at all shown on the bezel which makes the gauge unusable. The gauge is defined as:
 
gauge02=MPI_G1000!MFD,  798,670,484,329,MFD0|Cessna.Mustang
 
 
I'm sorry if these problems are really trivial but as I said, it's my first try at any of this.

You would need to post your entire panel.cfg for me to review.

OK, here it is. Understand that this is my first go and is nowhere near complete. It's based on the original panel.cfg and I have modified it.
