F1 to RXP GTN Gauge ready

Recommended Posts

How this works in a nutshell:  If you own an addon with a F1 GTN native VC integration (3d bezel/gauge etc) and want your clickspots to work with RXP, this is the gauge you need.

It's been verified to work in these addons (and it should work in nearly all): Carenado, Realair, A2A, Milviz.  There is a little user editing required, but it's not hard - read the readme (use Notepad++ for best results)

Also there is a small issue that I can't figure out - some users are reporting the need for double click on the HOME and DTO buttons.  Doesn't happen on my machine but a few have reported it.

If you have any ideas as to why it may be happening put it in this thread, maybe we can figure out why.

Nicely done Ryan!  Just put the 750 in my first plane last night (Turbine Duke), and your posting popped up just in time to add your gauge.  Seemed to work well.

Thanks for your efforts and for sharing them with the community.

Thank you for having conducted beta tests on this gauge Ryan!

It was fun to put my hands on XML code for the first time, and to come up with a solution which works with any aircraft. I would have like to find a way to make panel.cfg gauges detection automatic so as to eliminate the hand editing of the xml gauge, but I've not been able to give more thought about this.

Ideally, this gauge should go in the assistant managed process, so that upon analysis of the replaced gauges, it would put an automatically edited version of the XML gauge in the panel folder, matching the modified panel.cfg gauges.

Otherwise, I don't know yet if XML gauges support the 5th param, which in this case, would help make this gauge parametrizable in the panel.cfg without editing the XML file at all!

Hehe...this post dovetails perfectly with our discussion here Scott: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/525961-ups-majestic-dash-8-repaint/?do=findComment&comment=3764529

Found it when I was on your profile page just about to PM you.  Looks like I have some answers I've been looking for. :)

@ryanbatcund - Thanks for this file and I'll test it as well and report back when I decide which light jet to buy on the Carenado sale.

As I've been shopping, I've been playing the with GTN and added it to the F22 (yeah I know right) and it works beautifully (as an undocked gauge) with the F22's AP that I also learned to use while testing this great piece of nav software.  Links great with the lateral nav and steers the mutli-million dollar fighter around like a Cessna...even leading the turns on waypoints properly (read: really early) when your busting every speed restriction known to aviation (who doesn't yearn to push 500kts at 2000ft...because you can!) :biggrin:

Very impressed with the product even with my limited time with it so far.

@ttocs007 @scottb613 @steve

thanks hope it helps your simming addiction lol!

Uhhh...."helps" is a relative word Ryan depending on who you ask....ask a non-simmer who doesn't understand our nutty addiction, and they'd say it's hurting my chances to cure this silly addiction...but ask anyone of the rest of us, and we'll understand your meaning is to only perpetuate our deep, spiraling dive into this crazy hobby. 

So in other words...THANKS!:biggrin:

Thank you! I do hope they'll collect even more once we release the Reality XP G600/500!

Hi Ryan - I'm getting a 429 error from the Dropbox link - is the file hosted elsewhere now?  

Many thanks

Cheers

For some users (myself included) have to double click on the buttons to work.

I for one am having great success with this with RXP GTN 750_1, but in the RealAir TDv2, the only aircraft where I have both a 750_1 and 750_2 in the VC, I cannot get this to work on 750_2.  I have tried both possible settings for the four separated parameters in the xml file, 8 or 0.  Clicking twice does not work either.  for 750_1 it works fine.

Here's a new link.  Sorry about the link being down.  Some people or person told dropbox I was hosting a copyrighted file and that is simply not the case.  The files were created from scratch.  EDIT:  Grrrr, this link doesn't seem to work either... just PM me with your email for now until this stupid debacle is sorted out.

@fppilot - I've got the gauge working the T Duke and Legacy both have dual GTN 750's.  You've double and triple checked that the "use simulator commands" is active for both GTN's?

Whoops!  Likely not for the 750_2.  Will check and advise.

That was it!  Thanks Ryan. Working great now!

Fantastic!  JL reminded me when I did the same with the Realair Legacy lol

Funny Ryan, or not so funny: I was certain I could get it to work on 750_2 and spent a couple of hours trying, not realizing what I was omitting. So a bit bewildered at the end of that trialing effort, I tried clicking on the relevant clickspots on the 2D popup, and they worked fine.  I scratched my head for a few minutes until I realized......  Duhh!

This hobby can certainly produce brain fade, can't it!

Here's a mod to get the GNS530wV2 in the Baytower RV7 with working clickspots (P3D only - not tested in anything else).  It also addresses the inop gtx327 (that would usually crash P3D v4).  Credits also to Bert Pieke for the gtx327 mod and initial clickspot coding!

Place the rxp ini in the Vans_RV7 root folder and the rest in the panel.RV7_tip folder (backup originals).

It's then easy to make your own config for the rest of the variants.

Hey Ryan, the link to the Baytower RV7 fix seems to be down. Do you think you could perhaps re-upload it or send it? It would be greatly appreciated.

I've now got a small mod that allows minimal VC button functionality for some addons.  This mod adds click functionality for the DirectTo and HOME single button press in the virtual cockpit on the GTN bezel.  Some users have reported the frequency knobs in the lower right work too.  I don't use those however.

Mod has been tested in Carenado Cheyenne III, PA31T, C550, PC12, the Alabeo Ovation and Saratoga TC.  A2A Comanche, Cherokee, C182 (I'll probably do a mod for the 650 for the Connie).  And Realair Legacy v2.  This is only for the single GTN 750.

EDIT: That was fast - GTN 650 too:
