Baron gauges required

Extract your baron.cab into a baron2 directory, complete with the 1024 and 640 directories. Open the ECU.xml (I think) file and delete all sections that you don't need in your gauge.If you only need the throttle quadrant, you're in luck - delete everthing not related to this (fuel selector and cowlflaps), both from the list of drawing elements and fom the mouse section in the code.If your going for the cowl flaps, you'll also need to delete the throttle quandrant, and move those "y" values further up.Drag the code files into Internet Explorer to check for any potential problems, then reassign gauge names in panel.cfg (no need to make a .cab file) - and try it out.You just "made" your own gauge!I did something similar, but just because I wanted quick and dirty throttle quadrant.I'm not sure why you would divide into more panels though. I find that the less panels (though not photoreal in respect to placement) is easier to fly with, than struggeling on the busiest time for an endless hunt for the correct panel - but that's just me I guess :D

Thanks Karl.....I'm not too clued up on the programming side of things but, I'll give it a try...You have a valid point about the standard quadrant being easy to use, but I just wanted to try and make a panel that was as realistic as possible (taking into consideration that it is a flight sim, which does set certain limitations)... If you look at a real Baron panel, the fuel feed, engine quad and cowl flap functions aren't grouped together in the same way, but almost along side each other...By the way.. I don't intend to make them as loose panels.. I intend to past the whole shebang, including the radio stack and GPS onto the panel like it would be in real life, so you only have one panel..I'll post a couple of screenshots when I get it finsihed...Once again.....Thanks.//Tonni
