VC gauge buttons don't work thou. Perhaps someone can figure it out.

Copied from my earlier post.

Here are the modified (new) values for Alabeo C177 highlighted in yellow. All 3D buttons work perfectly too.

visible=0
pixel_size=513,513

I've integrated and tested the GNS 530W V2 in the A2A Simulations GA fleet (C172R, C182T, PA-24-250 and PA-28-180 - i.e. those products which have 3-D model support for the GNS 530).

In FSX and FSX-SE, A2A's "Aircraft Configurator" can be used to select the RXP option (this is for the old RXP GNS gauges) and the "panel.cfg" will then need to be edited as below. In P3Dv3/v4, this option isn't available in the configurator (the old gauges weren't supported in P3D). However, the "panel" folder for each aircraft should still contain the relevant *.cfg file (e.g. "panel_RXP_530.cfg") which can be copied and renamed to just "panel.cfg", overwriting the file that's already there.

Then edit these two sections as follows for the new gauge with its slightly different dimensions:

    [Window13]
    //window_pos=0.739583,0.000000 (existing entry)
    //window_size=0.260417,0.333333 (existing entry)
    window_pos=0.690000,0.000000
    window_size=0.310000,0.360000
    visible=0
    ident=15531
    nomenu=1
    zorder=99

    //gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS_530_1, 0, 0,100,100 (existing entry)    
    gauge00=rxpGNS2!GNS_530_1, 0, 0,100,100  

and

    [Vcockpit02]
    Background_color=0,0,0 
    size_mm=512,512
    visible=1
    pixel_size=640,640
    texture=$gps

    //gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS_530_1, 1,191,456,320 (existing entry)
    gauge00=rxpGNS2!GNS_530_1, 8,192,442,314

Note that the "window_size" entry was used to mimic the real unit's dimension (159mm x 117mm) on my 24" (1600 x 1200) monitor.

I've done some testing with A2A's custom KAP 140 autopilot simulation, and it seems to follow lateral and vertical guidance in GPS mode without any problems. Nav idents on the audio panel are working too.

Here's how it looks in the A2A Cherokee! :smile:

Cheers,

Nick

P.S. I don't have the GNS 430, but similar principals will apply.

For the Alabeo 177 Cardinal I seemed to get a little better fit than the one BillS511 posted. I have a major disability called obsessive compulsive disorder, anything that doesn't line up perfect I can't live with it, lol. Awesome work bill in posting these coordinates! I'm wondering if perhaps an option in the menu system couldn't plug right into real time resizing instead of having to refresh the simobject to see any changes?

LOL I know, it's that little sliver of the bezel that shows. It's 2am here. Listening to Pink Floyd to keep me awake.:laugh:

Did I just now noticed your sig image? Cool

CARENADO CT210M Centurion II :

Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=256,256

This one is kind of "odd" because after running the legacy RXP installer that comes with the aircraft it leaves no 3D buttons from the default Carenado GPS unit behind. Only the volume/on off, volume/id and the two large main control knobs, nor does it add anything different except leaving a black space. This is only for a single RXP 530 v2 unit along with the default Carenado 430 on the bottom.

I didn't use the Carenado gauge installer. Just added the appropriate gauge coordinates. All buttons functioning.

Ah ok, I see what these installers change on *some* of these Alabeo and Carenado planes, they simply remove the default GPS gauge and 3D GPS bezel so the VNAV button is labeled correctly on the RXP units.

Here's my "obsessive compulsive" alignment of the RXP GNS 530-430 stack for the Carenado Centurion T210.

This version requires you to install the file named RXP530-RXP430.exe  in your IE: "Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\SimObjects\Airplanes\Carenado Centurion T210" Directory and you *MUST* have a license for both the RXP530 version 2 and the RXP430 version 2. However, Carenado never bothered to fix a major bug with that installer, it causes a DME gauge to be deleted for some strange reason so I included it below in [Vcockpit02].

I replaced the gauge name with the new RXP gauge but some of the text on the lower part of the display was cut off. I was wondering if anyone got a "perfect fit" ?

Those are the values I'm using also. The lower part of the display which shows GPS/VLOC etc is cut off slightly

Change the value 372 to about 370 or less.

It will take some trial and error.

The first zero - 0, position left to right. 0, position up and down 512, width dimension & 372 height dimension.
