Newbie problem with panel reload

Recommended Posts

I took your suggestion to use the panel reloads trick, and tried to implement it through the Aces xml Program. The gauge appears in the program and displays in FSX. Just to test it, I commented out some icon gauges (radio, map, etc.), then I would try to re-enable them. But when I click the button nothing happens. I have to end the flight and then reload the a/c for the changes to take place. I am aware of clearing the cache by shutting off traffic from reading past forum posts. Is there something else that I missed? Here is a listing of what I tried to do:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>AceXML DocumentPanelReload.xml0.000,0.00041,41TrueTrue0.000,0.00041,41Normal15.000,15.00015,15HandReload_Panels)LeftSingle+LeftReleaseI also tried to implement the xml code the old way, with the same results. It would display the button, but not load the panel when the button was clicked on.Old xml listing:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>I also tried " (>K:Reload_Panels) " and " 0 (>K:Reload_Panels) " in both styles of xml. I even tried them without spaces between the click commands. In the old xml the hand appears, the helpid text appears,when I click the button icon an hourglass appears briefly, (as if something is happening); but nothing does. I was using it on an old Hughes 2002 a/c. Then I tried it on the FSX Bell 206b with the same results on both a/c.Yet if I change the variable to "Flight_Map", both versions bring up the flight map. I have been reading the posts but can't find anything like this. If anyone can point me in the right direction, It would be greatly appreciated. Chas...OleGreyGhost

RELOAD_PANELS does not work in FSX. We need to use RELOAD_USER_AIRCRAFT instead...I use this for FSX:(>K:RELOAD_USER_AIRCRAFT)I use this for FS9:(>K:RELOAD_PANELS)

Bill, Thanks for the quick reply. When I saw your answer, I was amused. Seems to be an MS trademark. If its broke sell it anyway. Are there anymore nice "surprises" awaiting us newbies. Again, thanks. Chas...Olegreyghost

Any more surprises? Sure, but I wouldn't want to spoil the fun of finding them! ;)

I find it just as handy to hit the keys,Alt, A and then Return. Got quite quick with the fingers now.I wonder if the K:reload_panel will be fixed in the beta.cheers,nick

Bill, Thanks again. It worked like a charm. Also the reload_user_aircraft works in Aces. Under key event and script when entered correctly. Nick, MS never fixes anything they "upgrade" with patches. Only I am finding more upgrades to their panels here in the library.Keep up the great work. Chas...OleGreyGhost

I have my keyboard set up to Reload User Aircraft with Ctrl-Shift-R, which is really handy when testing out .mdl changes. The only thing that isn't "reloaded" with this command are texture additions/changes.

Does the Re-load stuff work with C gauges, too, or is it just XML gauges?Would be nice to be able to compile a new gauge without having to load a different plane first.-Bryan

Once loaded in memory, the gauge file remains "locked" and cannot be deleted or overwritten until the gauge is unloaded from memory and the file is "unlocked."
