No display in panel (resolved)

Recommended Posts

I have tried searching for a solution to this problem but I didn't find anything.  I don't know when or how the problem started but in my A2A C182 and Comanche the panel unit (GTN-750

) is blank but when I click the bezel to pop out the GTN, the display is operational.  The pop out, not the panel display.  I have tried reinstalling the aircraft and RXP GTN but no improvement.  MY RXP installation for my A2A Bonanza works fine.

Hi Bill,

This most likely tells the panel.cfg doesn't have any RXP GTN gauge in the VCcockpit sections?

Or there are RXP GTN gauges but the RealityXP.GTN.ini tells to not render anything for the VCcockpit sections (think missing 'instance rendering' section - see User's Manual p10)

Thank you.  I will check that out right away.  And thanks again for a great add-on.  I just purchased the 650 also.

Bill

 

Edit:  Thank you for the great product support too.  🙂

That was it.  I made the appropriate entries and balance the screen brightness.  Good to go.

Thank you for the assistance.

Richard,
Would you open the Comanche's panel.cfg file with a text editor such as Notepad, and copy and paste the contents of that file's  [vcockpit03] section into a reply here?  The panel.cfg file will be found in the panel subfolder for that aircraft.  The typical path for a straight c:\ drive entry is something like the following.

C:\fsx\SimObjects\Airplanes\A2A_Piper_PA24_250_Comanche\panel

A default FSX installation would be:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\fsx\SimObjects\Airplanes\A2A_Piper_PA24_250_Comanche\panel

The panel cfg file on my computer is C/users/Richard/Prepar3Dv4Add-0ns/A2A/SimObjects/Airplanes/A2A_PA24_250_Comanche/panel

 

[VCockpit03]
size_mm=1024,1024
pixel_size=1024,1024
texture=$GTN750
background_color=0,0,0

gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750VC, 0,0,677,794,UNIT1

Thanks for your assistance

That [vcockpit03] is calling for the F1 GTN

For the RXP GTN750 it should look like this:
gauge00=rxpGTN!GTN_750_1, 0,0,677,794

And if I recall you may need to also configure a no_bezel option.

Great that fixed it, came on as soon as i powered up the aircraft. Next question: right clicking in the GTN screen does NOT bring up the popup screen, any thoughts on this

Cheers

Did you configure the popup in the Add Ons menu?  Installing is a two step process. One is replacing an existing gauge with an RXP, the other is setting up a pop up and location.

I am using the no_bezel option with the Comanche. Cannot remember if that is needed to get to the popup or not.  See Page 11 of the RXP GTN User Manual,
