RXP GTN750 into Twin Otter VC

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I used to own the F1 version of the GTN 750 and when I was running FSX I did manage to intergrate it into the VC of Aerosoft's Twin Otter. I can't for the life of me remember how it was done. I now have the RXP version of the GTN and run P3D v4.5. After following the posts on this forum I have it installed in all my A2A aircraft, but I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of doing the same with the Twotter.

Thanks

Ian

Hi Bert:

I own the F1 GTN750.  Would you please post the panel entry for the Aerosoft Twin Otter?

Thank you very much!

Thanks for the info Bert. It worked first time. Now do you know how I can access Comm1 and Nav1 as I don't have the top part of the GTN display in the VC. The shift4 key pops out the default GNS530. And also as I'm on a role, do you know how to get to the GTN settings panel as control right click does not work in the VC?

Thanks

Ian

Good!

Now replace the Window01 section:

[Window01]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=937,887
ident=14401
position=8
window_size= 0.340, 0.580
zorder=99
gauge00=rxpGTN!GTN_750_1,  0,0,937,887

 

Shift+2 will pop up the GTN, and there you can adjust the settings..

Hi Bert

Thanks again for your help, however I this needs a little bit more work to get it right. Having followed your instructions to replace [Window01] I observe the following

Shift+2 does nothing whereas before it was the checklist

Shift+3 is the Panel Set as before

Shift+4 is the GNS530 as before

So I've lost the checklist and still have the default GPS. Here is the Panel.cfg

Thoughts?

Ian

gauge00=gauge00=rxpGTN!GTN_750_1,  0,0,937,887

is incorrect, my bad... :blush:

Should be:

gauge00=rxpGTN!GTN_750_1,  0,0,937,887

You can also replace the old GNS Window by the checklist window... your choice :wink:

Hi again

Almost there. Swaping the line above has worked. I now have

Shift+2 is the RXP GTN750

Shift+3 is the Panel Set as before

Shift+4 is now nothing. I get a brief outline of where the checklist should be then nothing.

I replaced the old GNS window with the checklist window but obviously not got it quite right.

Latest Panel.cfg is here.

Any ideas?

Ian

You sir are a Scholar and a Gentleman. All is now well in the world of my sim. (till the next issue which knowing p3d and the multiple add-on's won't be far away) I just need to copy this into the various other models, tundra, cargo, floats etc.

I don't know if your on the pay role at Reality, but if not they ought to have you on a retainer for the support you give to the community.

Thanks and Regards

No, I am just another user... but certainly happy that you like it :smile:

Personally, I actually still like the GNS530 better in the Twotter..  just looks more authentic.. :unsure:
