XML gauge BMP question

Recommended Posts

As a learning exercises I extracted the XML gauges from the DC-3 CAB in FS2004. I separated the turn/bank and recompiled into a single cab. It showed in FS Panel Studio fine and showed and functioned in FS2004 fine. Next I modified the BMP by taking one of it's 256 colors and simply drew a line across the gauge. I then saved the BMP in the same color depth, size and format. I then re CABed the files. Again they showed fine Panel Studio but the gauge now will now show in FS2004. Any thoughts?Thanks, DaveIt's simple task to make things complex and a complex task to make things simple.

Hi,That gauge contains an alpha image, search this forum for more information and the sdk. You need to use the imagetool.exe if you modify that bitmapRegardsEugen
