Unable to make GNS530 working in LES Saab 340

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I've just purchase the RXP GNS530 and i try to make it working with the LES Saab 340. 

It's ok to make appears the 2D GNS530 in the Saab but, since there's a stock GNS 530 inside the cockpit (3d), the screen of the RXP remains black. I've generate the file below. The only thing is I have is the black screen of the RXP behind the screen of the stock 530GNS. And it's not working. The RXP doesn't initiate. The GNS 530 is still functional.  Do I have to modify the .ACF file too?

Many Thanks

Spoiler

Hi,

You're telling the GNS to display 2 views in the 3D cockpit at the same overlapping position. To get started one of the two is one too much.

Otherwise one is set to render on all PANELS types, the other one on PANEL3D only. These correspond to the type of 3D drawing XPlane is telling the plugin to render to. You might want to try the 'catch-all' setting "PANELS" and only change it to PANEL3D if it is fine with the specific aircraft (NB: it causes no harm or loss of fps using PANELS instead of PANEL3D because this is mostly very specific to the model or for XP9/10).
