Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 -No bezel option

7 posts in this topic

I currently running X-plane 9.7 home edition with PFC Digital Avionics Standard (w/ 430W GPS Control Interface) and Reality XP GNS 430W WASS version 6.0.1. I'm having problem with getting the "no bezel" to work. Is there a fix or a work around for this issue?  or upgrading to Reality XP GNS 430W V2 will do the trick?

 

Thanks,

Tom

I don't think the legacy GNS has the 'no bezel' option unless it is a professional license.

GNS V2 is a different product and there is no current "upgrade" pricing. You can then purchase GNS V2 and use it instead of the legacy product. GNS V2 also supports XP11,XP10 and XP9 in 64/32 bits.

Please note you don't need to re-purchase the PFC Hardware driver, you hardware driver license works for both legacy and GNS V2. However, there is no 64bits version of the driver available yet.

Will I able to re-use my RealityXP.GNS.WAAS.ini files from GNS V1 for V2?

Here's the text from one of the file from V1.

Hi, there won't be an automatic process which converts older settings to newer ones, however, all these exist in the new settings (with different names). With the Settings GUI, it is also very easy and fast to adjust all these now, and most don't even require restarting the simulation and update live!

Here is a canonical example of the new settings:

[GNS]
; comma separated list of gauges
gauges = GNS_530_1

[GNS_530_1]
; comma separated list of render targets.
drawto = WINDOW, PANELS
; is the master device if true.
MasterDevice = false
; connects GPS to copilot side if true.
CopilotSide = false
; selects COM/NAV Radios '1' or '2'.
RadiosPair = 1
; uses computer time if true, simulator time otherwise.
ComputerTime = false
; integral lighting rheostat index (0 to 3) or percent (-100 to 0)
Rheostat.Display = -100
; integral lighting rheostat index (0 to 3) or percent (-100 to 0)
Rheostat.Buttons = -75
; connects GPS to HSI if true.
LinkHsi = true 
; connects GPS to HSI course if true.
LinkCrs = true 
; connects HSI OBS to GPS if true.
LinkObs = false
; connects GPS to VOR if true.
LinkVor = false
; connects GPS to Autopilot if true.
LinkOto = true 
; connects CDI key to NAV/GPS switch if true.
AutoNavGps = true 
; selects VLOC NAV '1' or '2'. '0' selects same source as 'RadiosPair'.
AutoNavSource = 0
; connects GPS to Shadin Air Data computer if true.
UseAirData = false
; connects GPS to Shadin Fuel Data computer if true.
UseFuelData = false
; connects GPS to RYAN 9900BX if true.
UseRyanTcad = true 
; sets TCAD sound alerts volume in percent: 0 to 100.
RyanTcadVolume = 50
; connects GPS #1 to GPS #2 if true (both required).
UseCrossFill = false
; enable device failures if true.
UseFailures = false
; uses Simulator GPS commands if true.
UseSimGpsCmds = false
; sets fuel type: AVGAS,JETA,JETB
FuelType = AVGAS
; sets TAWS type: TERR,TAWS
TawsMode = TERR
; sets TAWS surface: HARD,HARD_SOFT,WATER,ANY
TawsSurface = HARD_SOFT
; TAWS minimum runway length (feet)
TawsMinLength = 40
; sets master sound volume in percent: 0 to 100.
MasterVolume = 100
; selects the CPU running the trainer process: 1 to 32
; 0: last core, -1: automatic.
CpuAffinity = -1
; connects to: 'PFC_STACK','PFC_430','PFC_530' or any '#PID' (#D002 for PFC_430)
; no value connects to first found, 'OFF' disables connection.
HardwareDevice = 
; hardware selector number or -1 to disable.
HardwareIdx = -1
; sets device power source: ALWAYS_ON,AVIONICS_BUS,MAIN_BATTERY
PowerSource = AVIONICS_BUS
; comma separated list of read only settings.
locked = 

[GNS_530_1.WINDOW]
; display window if true.
visible = true 
; show screen only gauge if true.
nobezel = false
; display type: WINDOW,PANEL2D,PANEL3D,PANELS
frame.type = WINDOW
; display position and dimension (left,top,width,height)
frame.rect = 850,948,490,357
; screen only border size (pixels).
border.size = 0
; screen only border color (#RGB or #RGBA).
border.rgba = #000000
; enable mouse clickspots if true, disable if false (use SHIFT to override)
usemouse = true 
; display mouse tooltips if true.
tooltips = false
; freeze display position if true.
locked = false
; enable popup window if true (screen clickspot)
usepopup = true 

[GNS_530_1.PANELS]
; display window if true.
visible = false
; show screen only gauge if true.
nobezel = true 
; display type: WINDOW,PANEL2D,PANEL3D,PANELS
frame.type = PANELS
; display position and dimension (left,top,width,height)
frame.rect = 0,0,0,0
; screen only border size (pixels).
border.size = 0
; screen only border color (#RGB or #RGBA).
border.rgba = #000000
; enable mouse clickspots if true
usemouse = true 
; enable popup window if true (screen clickspot)
usepopup = true
