Smoothing Gauge needles

Recommended Posts

Can someone offer advice on how to apply smoothing to gauge needles to remove the jaggie appearance? Many of the FS2002 gauges seem to have this standard (eg the Mooney gauges), but some of my wonderful payware aircraft have noticeable jaggie effects on the gauge needles.Does the SDK explain this? Or is there some utility program that I can download to uncompile, fix, and recompile a gauge?Sorry for the elementary question, but I have not proceeded much beyond editing panel.cfg files..

When the gauge is constructed a "bit" is set in the code to antialias the needle graphic. The SDK refers to this as IMAGE_BILINEAR_COLOR. As far as I know there is no practical way to change this after the fact although it could probably be done by hex editing the gauge file.Fred
