'run' and then 'accept' each one.If the gauges are not from FS98 then the aircraft will most likely work.

im sorry mccrash. thanx for the reply, but i guess i should have made this known. yes, im actually already this far. ive got the planes in fsx and working good. fsx accepted the gauges, but they just dont have any gauges, eicas, pfd, etc. theyre all blank. ive read some stuff about recompiling the gauges but have no idea what that means........... but thanx again for your time............brett

It sounds as though the panel may have been aliased in your FS9 installation. I've moved the 777-300 into FSX and it works just fine. In the panel folder I have "Boeing777-300.gau" and "magnetic_compass.gau". I do remember having the "no gauges" problem on one of the aircraft I brought into FSX but I can't remember exactly what the problem was. I just know that it was a simple fix. Paul

no, my panel.cfg is all good too. ive even tried a reinstallation at this point, and still nothing. ive been scanning the folders and cfg's trying to find a key difference. at this point i am basically trying to get the fs9 default 777 to work. again the plane works, i just dont have any gauges. so.......... if anyone has been able to do this i would appreciate the help. also, i appreciate the help thus far..............brett
