GTN750 Screen Blank in 3D Cockpit XP11

Recommended Posts

I just updated to GTN 750 version 2.4.5 with GTN trainer 6.21.0.1.  The GTN750 works without errors in popup mode.  However, when I close the popup, the screen in the 3D cockpit of the default C172 with the GTN750 on the panel downloaded from avsim. dot com is blank.  I think this has come up before, but cannot find the right solution.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  Thank you.

Hi Aaron, do you mean both screens display when popup is visible, and when closing the popup window, the remaining one (cockpit) turns dark?

This is peculiar, as they are each 'render' (popup, 2d, 3d) are independent. Can you please post the content of your RealityXP.GTN.ini file located in your aircraft folder?

Make sure you have the BATTERY switch ON, I have set the GTN in the 3D panel to switch with battery power as well as AVIONICS switch to power the GTN 750.

frame.type = PANEL2D

Your 'frame.type' settings tell to render to the 2D panel only. It should at least read 'frame.type = PANEL3D' or with the latest release candidate, 'frame.type = PANELS' (note the trailing 'S' which means both 2D and 3D panels).

That did the trick.  Thank you both for the feedback.  It all works correctly.

Thank you for your patience, and thanks to Bluebell for is great mod!!

Hi guys, is the 3d cockpit GTN 750 clickable?
I find that I can't click on it, only open the window panel to make modifications.

Thanks

Yes it is, you have to manually enable the option in the "RealityXP.GTN.ini" file.

Please make sure to review the User's Manual for more details.

During the installation of the plugin in X-Plane 11 I get two error messages, trying to rename:rxpGlnSim32.dll and rxpGTN\32\win.xpl.
I have searched for the files he trying to rename, but they do not exist.

The installation of the trainer went well, and also works well, when I press the poweron button and I press on continue a few times, a vois tel that all tasks test ok.

If I start the plugin in X-Plane 11 the GTN750 looks the same as the trainer, one difference there is no poweron button, so the screen stays black.
He makes an .ini in the file of the plane, in the .ini file you can see that it should be on all times
I installed a couple of times, but always the same error messages.
And the screen still stays black.
What Schould I do to get it working?
