RXP ctd with A2A C182

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow RXP users,

I have a problem (actually 2 now given the first problem seems to have created the 2nd). I purchased the RXP GTN750pack and installed a few weeks ago. I followed the instructions for installing it in the AS Cheyenne III as posted in the configuration thread for P3Dv4. That worked extremely well and I am very pleased with the way it performs and how the setup went.

I since bought the A2A C182 and installed it and enjoying coming to grips with its habits. On further reading I saw the instructions posted here on putting the GTN750 into C182. Beauty I thought, I followed the instructions  - though I must say the first step is the most vague for an RXP noob ie what specific instrument do you replace in the RXP setup window with the GTN750 as it gives you several options?

I went through that process and then closed down v4 I backed up the original GTN.ini and the C182 panel cfg, I then went about cutting and pasting the appropriate add in to the two files, saved them and reopened the sim, no change - original/default instruments still appeared.

I retraced and checked the setup and checked the entries in the cfg and ini files (they were as pasted directly -from Nirgal76's post). I decided to undo it all and start from scratch because maybe I did something wrong in the setup, so back to the original files and reversed the setup in the RXP setup window and exited the sim.

I restarted the sim and went into the A2A C182 and sitting on the tarmac I selected the RXP setup tab in the menu to recommence the setup and v4 stops working and creates a Windows error file. Note that the Cheyenne is still working fine with the GTN750 in the VC, v4 only crashes when I select the RXP setup option in the C182.

question 1. I assume I need to uninstall and reinstall RXP to get it working correctly again in setup mode?

As I seem to have managed to corrupt something in my effort to get it installed into the C182 I am guessing that would impact the Cheyenne III install as the RXP GTN.ini file will be deleted so I will restore that specific file from the backup I made of the working Cheyenne GTX ini file.

question 2. If I proceed with Q1 can someone then advise which instrument I should select in the RXP setup options of the C182 to be replaced by the GTN 750 before I modify the panel.cfg and GTX.ini files?

I do have the windows error report on the v4 CTD but they are usually not very informative in situations such as this. I would really like to get the C182 working with the 750 given how good the GTN 750 is in the Cheyenne.

Any and all help is appreciated.

Hi,

AFAIK the A2A 'RXP' option is for the RXP Legacy GNS ( aka v1 ) and will certainly not work as-is. Like you are trying to do, the instructions you are referring to most likely tell to 'replace' the legacy RXP gauges with the RXP GNS V2 using the Panel Assistant in-sim.

However, I'll need to let actual customers of both products to further help you on this one, because I won't be able to repro with this specific aircraft.

Can anyone with the A2A aircraft help us out with this?

I do not fly P3D. Not yet.  Still with FSX.  I do have an incidence of the A2A C182T with a working GTN750 in the panel.  I did not keep much in the way of notes but I recall I struggled a good bit to get it close to my liking.  I started with a GTN option provided by A2A and then edited the instance of that gauge as appropriate for the RXP GTN.  Even then the A2A GTN bezel interferes so I am using the RXP no_bezel option.  That method blocks access to buttons and knobs in the VC, but the VC screen functions work fine and the popup works fine for buttons and knobs.   Also hope there will be no confusion over my say innovative method of providing for easy use of either GTN_750_1 or _2.

The pertinent sections of my panel.cfg and RealityXP.GTN.ini are below:

Window00=Main panel
Window01=Clipboard

From RealityXP.GTN.ini:  

// Note that the multiple entries here allow me to easily move back and forth between GTN_750_1 and GTN_750_2 with a simple pair of edits in // panel.cfg, simply changing the respective active lines.  I store totally different flight plans in _1 vs _2, usually based on length of flights, ex. Low Enroute vs Hi Enroute

Thanks for the responses, I will give your files a try and report back over the next couple of days. I suspect the 32 vs 64 bit might be a compounding issue given the RXP GTN went through an update for v4.

Thanks Jean-Luc you are probably right I hadn't considered that aspect given it was posted in Oct 2017 I assumed wrongly it applied to the latest RXP. I will compare Frank's files with Nirgal76's and see if I can work up something.

Cheers

You couldn't be wrong, it is just the A2A aircraft are not pre-configured for the GNS V2 yet (it was released during summer 2017 though). They have indicated they'd start working on this in 2018.

Thanks for setting me straight I did base that assumption on the dates of the two products, I should have read a bit more closely. Maybe A2A will release it sooner rather than later in 2018. I am happy to keep flying the Cheyenne + GTN750 in the meantime.

Thanks again for the advice.

I am now confused about the 182. Are you wanting the GTN or the GNS?  The files I embedded above are for the GTN 750 and in the VC the buttons and knobs are not functional.  Only in the 2D popup.  However in FSX I have a very clean and fully operational set of RXP GNS. A 530 over a 430.

I am only interested in the GTN750/650. I have since got it working as a pop up only will keep fiddling with the VC. Thanks

Did you ever get this working?  I've got C182 in P3D v4, GTN750/650 (RXP of course), with working knobs and buttons.

Hi Ryan thanks for asking the answer is no I didn't. Flying with the 2d pop up only at the mo. Frustrating I went through the procedure several times I would like to get the RXP pack working in the VC of the c182 as I prefer it for the low and slow flying

I have uninstalled and reinstalled using the config post in the forum without success. If I don't get it working by Tuesday oz time I will leave it alone for a month as I am travelling OS.

Cheers
