Dreamfleet Bonanza in FSX?

Recommended Posts

Can someone give me some advice on getting the Dreamfleet Bonanza to work in FSX? I installed the Dreamfleet Baron 58 Lite into FSX with no problem, but the Bonanza won't work. I keep getting an error message when I select the plane saying "RXP Service module not found" or "Reality service module not found", I forget which. I keep clicking OK but the box just keeps popping up until FSX freezes and I have to CNTL-ALT-DEL to get out of it.I tried installing directly into FSX, then moving the plane from Aircraft to SimObjects/Airplanes which worked for the Baron. Then I tried installing to a dummy folder and manually copied the files to FSX, still no go.What happens when running the installer is the plane installs fine, the Reality XP gauges seem to install fine, but when the installer tries to run the Garmin trainer it throws an error that the file can't be extracted, access denied. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!Jim

That wonderful plane has the Wx500 weather radar and GNS430 Garmin GPS installed within the panel, and only the Wx500 has been updated for FSX. Since they're both stand-alone gauges that are built into the panel, I imagine we'll have to wait until Dreamfleet provides that update. RXP is looking into the upgrade for those units, but I think I remember seeing somewhere that it'll take some major reworking to port them into FSX. Plus, Jean-Luc of RXP is very busy on another project as well. Then the Bonanza has the Sandel gauge. I'm not sure if Eaglesoft has an updated one for FSX, but that's also something that Dreamfleet will address in an update. I replaced mine with the RXP version, but again, it's not FSX compatible.I'm sure a lot of people are hoping to see the DF A36 in FSX, but the new SDK and other factors are making it take longer. I honestly don't see DF not upgrading it for FSX either.

Thanks for the reply Chris. Guess I'll just have to wait a while longer.Jim

The Eaglesoft Sandel for the DF project was a "one off" deal so any update would have to come from DF or RXP.Hope this help:-)

I successfully replaced the RXP Jetline 2 gauges in FSD's T-38 with Simflyer's GLX gauges. http://www.simflyer.net/The GLX gaugges aren't as good or smooth as the RXP gauges but they work in FSX and for $5.00 USD, what the heck. The GLX gauges consist of the same EADI as RXP and a Sandel unit.You might be able to do the same with your Bonanza?

I just ran the installer and pointed it to FSX instead of FS9. The installer will create an Aircraft folder and install the plane into it. Then I just moved the plane from the Aircraft folder to the SimObjects/Airplanes folder. Jim

It is my understanding that they use the same gauge engine (for the lack of a better term) as FSX gauges. However, Simflyer dresses them up better.Now, what I just said may be completely off base. So, if anyone knows more about them, speak up please. The GLX are the only ones I own and they work fine. I like them.

RXP and the Garmin Trainer will not run in FSX. Period.You can comment out all the RXP stuff and run the rest of the panel though.

Pretty sharp statement Bill! I'm sure you mean: the FS9 version of the Reality XP product won't run on FSX.Of course, the FSX version of the Reality XP product run on FSX, like the already released Wx500 Weather Radar!The Garmin Trainer will run regardless of the FS version, it depends on the gauge version only (i.e. GNS 430/530 for FS9 or for FSX).Hope this helps!

>Pretty sharp statement Bill! I'm sure you mean: the FS9>version of the Reality XP product won't run on FSX.I was - of course - referring only to the versions of the product contained in the FS9 Dreamfleet Bonanza (the subject of this thread) attempting to be loaded in FSX......which has no bearing whatever on any of the other - non-bundled - products currently available, which may - or may not - work in FSX.Sorry for not being more precise... ;)

Bill, I wouldn't expect you to apologize to Jean Luc. You are correct. There are no RXP gauges that work in the Dreamfleet aircraft using Reality XP gauges. That is the title and theme of this thread.Jean Luc, you have some wonderful gauges for FS9. I own some of them and, I will buy the XP versions when they come out. Until you do have mainstream FSX compatible gauges like the ones you sell for FS9, please don't come here and point out the spots on someone else's linen. Give us a FSX version of your EADIs and EHSIs and we will open our wallets and hearts to you. In the meanwhile don't split hairs with one of the most professional and knowledgeable contributors to AVSIM.

Mike,Thanks for that tip.I got my DF Baron working in FSX. I got the Simflyers Sandel and the EFIS.However I have a problem with the Sandel DG. See the numbers..its off to the side. I have tried everything and it doesn't seem to center.Any ideas? I already tried changing the aspect ratio..but that doesn't change the inner circleMannnyhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/178032.jpg

>This thread is useless and should be deleted.Why? I was interested in using Dreamfleet's Bonanza but obviously without all the RXP gauges working for FSX except the weather radar it's a no-go. And we've waited a long time for those gauges for FSX but look's like Jean Luc has other priorities. Personally, I've given up on waiting and I won't purchase the Weather Radar either. RXP has moved off my list of addons which interest me.

Len,You install the FS9 DF Baron in the FSX folder and then use the Caranado (if you have that) Aircrafts Attitude indicator, Radios and DG for the Baron.I bought Simflyers guages and their Sandel DG does not work properly...and in the PDF document it says, since it was on clearence sale there is no support. It was just $5 bucks..so its ok.You really don't need it, you can use guages from your other aircrafts. Manny

I had a similar problem using that gauge in my FSD T-38 port. In my case I can still use it so I just ignore the odd number position.Simflyers doesn't offer support for this item. However, maybe someone from Simflyers will read this and offer a solution?

I replaced the simflyers with the guages from my Caranado aircrafts. You really don't need Simfliers gauges.I have never modified guages before, but this forced me to look at it and now I am happily doing adding windows/gauges etc. I am doing all this manually. No FSGuages software. I am positioning guages by trial and error. Its not very hard (once you know it).I am in the process of adding a new window with Engine gauges so I can move it to my second monitor. I always wanted this and the default DF Baron never had a floating engine gauge.Its fun.Manny
