Or you can also consider Free Command Line Compiler from Borland. Not too bad for the price.

This is probably not what you want to hear, but creating XML gauges requires little in the way of tools and utilities. I use notepad, CABPCK14, and Paint for the bitmaps (I also use Paint Shop Pro 7 for the bitmaps - nice, but not absolutely necessary).It requires a much greater investment of your time to learn the programming language, but if you pay attention to the really expert information presented in this forum, read the XML Gauge 01 document by Arne Bartels that explains some of the FS2002 XML gauge syntax and provides examples of gauge variables along with much other valuable information, and then spend some time putting these things together into a FS2002 gauge, you can find yourself creating gauges for FS in a very short time.It's actually fun, and very rewarding to create gauges out of what is essentially the "materials at hand", and believe me - if I can do it then so can you!
