Hi Gang,First thing, I am always seeing questions with lines of code in them. Where does this code come from? When I look in the gauge files all I see are lines of strange symbols. Is there an editor which converts them to lines of text that can then be edited?Secondly, I would like to make an altimeter gauge display in millibars rather than inches with regard to pressure settings. Is that an easy thing to do and if so how do I do it? I have no experience of programming language. At present I just move gauges around with FS Panel Studio.Thanks

I think what you have been seeing are lines of code from the new style XML gauges. If you unzip any of the CAB files inside your gauges folder using WINZIP, you will find BMP files and XML files . The BMP files are what provide the basic background for these gauges - while the XML files provide the code to create the "movement" and workings of the gauge. You can view (and alter) this code by using Windows NOTEPAD .Barry
