Altimeter not reading Hundreds of feet

Recommended Posts

I have noticed recently that at some point in the not too distant past, the analogue altimeter seems to have stopped reading hundreds of feet. The needle for thousands is fine but the one for hundreds is stuck at the 12 o’clock position.

Since upgrading to version 2.12.1, with the ability to set independent pilot and co-pilot instruments, I have discovered that if you set the altimeter to co-pilot it works fine but if you set it to pilot, the problem remains. Has anyone else had this problem, and found a solution?

I am running x-plane 11.30.

I noticed that whilst both altimeters were displaying the same altitude, their barometric pressures were completely different, so I wound the pilot one back to read the same as the co pilot and hey presto, it started working properly. In essence it seems it had been set off the scale.
