Reality XP GNS 530W/430W 2.1 released

Recommended Posts

Legendary gauges update v2.1 is now available to download!


Here are the release notes:

  • New: GPS satellite reception failure (waas/no-waas/failed).
  • Enhanced: Screen brightness light source setting.
  • Enhanced: Keys brightness (integral lighting) source setting.
  • Fixed: X-Plane 11 installer option saving to XP10 folder.


GNS Failure Annunciations


We've decided to delay the release for 24H and include the new GPS satellite reception failure as in the GTN update. You can now practice degraded approaches (WAAS failure) and simulate what-if loosing GPS reception entirely!


For those not wanting to read the whole manual again, here is the new chapter about the failures.

The GNS plugin uses the following datarefs as failures sources

"sim/operation/failures/rel_gps", "sim/operation/failures/rel_g430_gps1"
Satellite reception failure, displays "No GPS Position"

Differential GPS failure, reduces location accuracy. Satellite reception mode switches to 3D instead of 3D-Diff."


Light Sources


Because not all aircraft are the same and we want the best out-the-box experience, the integral lighting settings (keys and screen) now default to fixed values (75% and 100% respectively). The RealityXP.GNS.ini file gives you the choice to override the default and connect the X-Plane rheostats sources per-aircraft.




There was a bug that passed unnoticed since release and only discovered with the GTN v2.3 update, which made it copy the plugin files to the XP10 folder. For related reasons, a key shared data file was not copied at all with XP11 only option and prevented the plugin to display any artwork. It is now fixed.
