Easy Gauge - Is it Any Good?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the new EasyGauge program demo? I downloaded it but it asked to install some other program, which I was leery of. Is it any good? thanks, Bob.

I actually don't have it, but the 'other program' you're talking about might most likely be the MinGW compiler, available at www.mingw.org for free.Etienne :-wave

>Has anyone tried the new EasyGauge program demo? I downloaded>it but it asked to install some other program, which I was>leery of. Is it any good? thanks, Bob.Not only have I tried the demo, but I bought the "Pro" version ($130). The "other program" is the C++ compiler, which, although is 'freeware,' has been optimized for use with Easy Gauge... Or, rather Easy Gauge has been optimized to work with that compiler... :)Like any tool though, it is only as good as the hands of the craftsman. For some examples of what can be done with EG, look a the panel pictures of the 400A at http://eaglesoftdg1.com or the gauges of the 757 panel released a few weeks ago by Lonny Payne.BillAVSIM OmbudsmanFounder and Director,Creative Recycling of Aircraft Partshttp://mtco.com/~rsam/fartslogo.jpg

I've EasyGauge. But it doesn't work at my computer, because compiling doesn't start. Also the developers don't have any idea. But what I've heard is that EasyGauge is a very good program, espacially if you don't like programming.So my tip to you: Try the demo if everything works!!! If yes, and you don't like programming and writing source code too much, then EasyGauge is the right joice.But EasyGauge is not a program where you just have to select some graphics and have finished a new gauge. No, you also must work a bit with your brain!Regards,Harri:-)
