Almost there Please help! Falcon 7x integration

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

hello all, I've lurked a little bit on these forums and recently purchased the GTN 750. I have been trying to integrate it into the viper jet (Successful), Falcon 7x(partial success), and the Gulfstream IV(partial success) On both of the business jet freeware aircraft, I can get the RXP 750 to render in the correct place on the 3D virtual cock pit, however, I can't get it to be touchscreen. I will post my Ini file down below! Please help me knock this out, so I can add 2 more aircraft to the configuration panel 🙂 so we can get more aircraft to feature this amazing GPS!

Hi,

thank you for sharing your mods! The reason for the lack of touchscreen is because the parameter is wrong (see the in-line comments). The choice is either true or false.

Hi RXP - I also have your GTN750, and want to integrate it into those same 2 freeware  jets, the Falcon7x and the Gulfstream IV.  I've tried the ini file above with

; enable mouse clickspots if true, disable if false (use SHIFT to override)
usemouse = true

but I cannot click on the screen (the ini file above is specifically for the 7x).  The screen renders in the correct location, but clicking on it is not possible.  Is there something else that must be done?

To tmab204 - what is your ini file for GHansen 's Gulfstream IV?  The rendering location and size are definitely different!

Thanks, and to RXP  - your product is GREAT!

Jim

Hi, and thank you for your kind words!

Is it possible you're trying to render the GTN onto an existing gauge screen on the panel, and this gauge screen has an embedded 3D cockpit clickspot there? If this is the case, X-Plane will intercept the click for the 3D model prior the GTN plugin gets any notification of the click?!

Hi RXP - that's probably the problem...any idea how to fix, if possible?
