Balancing VC and 2D GTN screen brightness

Recommended Posts

@por930 it looks like you've got yourself a job LOL! I sincerely appreciate your help with this. We still have many things to get done before we can even start with this (G600 for example) but this is a good template I agree.

I cannot explain why the slider in the Settings area is named Screen Brightness but instead controls Rheostat.Display.

Now taking the example of the Configuration Panel | Screen Brightness: try clicking the blue square to the left and see what the label changes to...?

I only recognized that previously as a slider and did not know about checking the box.  Where do I find a layman's explanation of what checking that box does as opposed to using the slider?

If you are still confused, keep in mind:
[GTN_750_1.DEFAULT] This section in RealityXP.GTN.ini is only for the popup gauge settings.

[GTN_750_1.NO_BEZEL] This section is only for the virtual cockpit gauge settings.
You can copy and paste other items from the [GTN_750_1.DEFAULT] section to this section. Like popright =, tooltips =, etc.

How did you learn this?

I figured if you have to add the [GTN_750_1.NO_BEZEL] section to add settings for the VC gauge, then I assumed the [GTN_750_1.DEFAULT] section settings must be for the popup gauge.

This depends on how you have defined the gauges in the panel.cfg file.

You can name the gauges any name you want, and supply a matching section in the ini file.

If you supply no name, the default section is used.

Exactly. Trying to keep it simple for new users. Since the gauge installer already adds NO_BEZEL to the VC gauge line there is no reason to open or edit the panel.cfg file.

Sorry, you two are in a foursome ahead of my foursome, and there are a couple of foursomes in between!

Thanks for the information in this thread.  It has partially solved the issue for me.  Now as how to adjust the brightness on those aircraft that have a Reality XP GTN installer but still have a very bright in panel GTN with a bezel and a  dim popup panel.

I would also ask the question to Reality XP as to why all of this is even necessary to begin with.  By that I am asking why the VC panel screen brightness is different from the Popup panel screen brightness?  Shouldn't they be set to be the same brightness to begin with?

I think you have to ask this question of the aircraft creator/vendor :wink:
