VIRTUAL COCKPIT GAUGES READING DISPLAY

Recommended Posts

Hello

I was wondering if there is a way to have the cockpit gauges display their readings without having to hover over them with mouse, e.g., as I change throttle, mixture and prop pitch or even heading settings the info box would automatically appear.

Thanks

Those are called mouse hints... hence, requiring the mouse.

You could program that function in an XML gauge... track the values, if they change, display them in some format.. and make them disappear again..

WarpD - OK I believe I am aware of that.

So it seems I want to see "auto view when values change" hints.

It's tricky operating the CH yoke throttle/prop/mix with any precision with your right hand, moving the mouse over the vc with your left to see the changes and keeping your middle hand on the yoke.

It just seems to me that auto pop ups would be a tremendous improvement. I am stunned that the mouse method was even considered in the first place,

I don't need yet another reason to take a hand off the yoke. Maybe it's because I'm left-handed.......

 

Bert - that sounds way way above my capabilities.

Thanks to you both.

Why not look at the gauges?

I'm lost as to why you need the mouse tips to pop up.

How you describe trying to fly in the sim is not how i do it and i'm left handed too 🙂

Hello

I do look at gauges but find the pop ups to be more accurate.

Perhaps I'm trying to be more accurate than I need to be, it is a 'simulator' after all.
