RXP GNS 530W/430W V2 v2.2.6 released

Recommended Posts


I'm pleased to announce the official v2.2.6 release!

Just go to 'Plugin | Reality XP GNS | GNS # | Check for updates...'

List of changes (since v2.2.5):

  • Changed AlwaysOn option to PowerSource.
  • 2 Additional datarefs for the master device: DTK and XTK
  • 2 New RealityXP.GNS.ini file settings
  • Using xSquawkBox SDK to drive RX/TX flags (unsupported for now)
  • Corrects bug when rebooting the device.
  • Corrects bug with overridden DTK and BRG dataref values.
  • Correct visual bug when rendering the gauge window with large w/h ratio.

Additional notes (v2.2.6):

The first time you run the new version, the 'AlwaysOn' option gets converted to the new 'PowerSource' option, which now offers: Always On, Avionics Bus and Battery Bus.

The 2 new datarefs from the master device are (DTK and XTK respectively):


The 2 new settings are 'locked' and 'LogTrainer' and are explained p14 of the User's Manual. The later is in case of 'trainer crashing' or similar issues. The former is for third party vendors needing to ensure some settings are not altered.

The xSquawkBox integration for the RX and the TX flags is preliminary and not supported at this time. This means it has been untested and we expect your feedback to further improve this integration!

The bugs were more less severe. The first one is a severe one and has been there for a long time unnoticed. It caused the device internals to update at 4hz after a reboot (power cycles off/on, changes in settings requiring a reboot etc...) instead of its nominal update rate.

The second bug was a typical magvar error, the third one was solely graphical (wrong transformations when rotating the buttons).

One problem I seem to have is all the GNS_2 commands In 3D cockpit are not working. The GNS_1 commands okay.

I have GNS 2 as 430 and GNS 1 as 530 looks like a problem with 430.

Pop-up window works okay.

Ok I'll look at this right away. Is this "_2" fail regardless, or only with 430? There is a chance the GTN "_2" commands fail the same because both code bases has a change around the handling of commands.

I've just re-upload the installers with bug corrected and working '_2' commands.

To be on the safe side, and to ensure no files are locked before re-installation, you might want to first manually delete the following files:

  • rxpGNS plugin folder
  • "C:\ProgramData\RealityXP\rxpGnsSim32.dll"
  • "C:\ProgramData\RealityXP\rxpGnsSim64.dll"

Then you just have to reinstall over.

NB: they are re-released with the same version number v2.2.6
