2 C Gauge questions

Recommended Posts

Hello all,I have 2 questions about C Gauges. 1. Is it possilbe to change the value of a gauge you aren't neccesariy using. For example, lets take the airspeed gauge for the baron 58. Is there some function that allows me to set the AIRSPEED token. I could make a new gauge but instead I just want to tell MS to make that variable some number. 2. Can someone please explain what the initialize_var() does? I thought that maybe I could use that to solve my first problem but it just doesn't seem to do anything. I use lookup_var all the time, but I just can't forget the init_var function.Thanks in advance.

No, you can not make FS change the value of the AIRSPEED token. It's read-only.>>2.

Thanks ED,After looking into it a little further I realized I can write to FS using the KEYs.
