  1. The 1900D works just fine in FSX. Go to PMDG's site and there's instructions in how to port it over.
  2. I bought the Just Flight version to pacify me till the PMDG DC-6 is released. There will be no comparison, PMDG's will make the JF look like freeware :) I could be wrong but I don't think Buffalo Airways have a DC-6
  3. >Here is an FSX replacement for the radalt.gau, it is only for>FSX and is an FSX XML compliant gauge. I coded it myself this>evening.>>http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/181853.zip>>Bob...>Thank you so much, this is fantastic! The analogue radalt gauges are too hard to read for my old eyes, your gauge is ideal. I've installed it in my C-206 and it's perfect, thank you!!! George "Alky
  4. I've been waiting ever since FSX came out to see if anyone could modify/redo the digital radalt gauge to make it compatible with FSX.I haven't a clue about creating gauges so I wait. Could someone please make one and upload it to AVSIM?(see attachment) Thanx!! :)
  5. Thanx Mark, I posted here first and then realised there isn't all that much traffic here, so I went for the DCA forum, sorry to trouble you with answering posts when you could be working on the patch... just kidding!! Thank you for all that the crew does for us :)George "Alky
  6. Is the MAAM DC-3 FSX ready, if so what do I need to know to install it there? George "Alky
  7. For anyone that's interested, I've finished the CP Air repaint of the DC-3 Passenger plane. I've uploaded it to AVSIM and when they make it available you can search for it with the following...Filename: MAAM_CPAir.zipName: Canadian Pacific Airways (CP Air) MAAM-SIM DC-3http://members.shaw.ca/alky/cp-air.jpgGeorge "Alky
  8. >Actually, there was one DC3 with the red/org stripes for CP>Air. I only have a couple pics of it......but they are black>and white ones :(>>BruceIf you could email them to me, that would be great, at least I'd see the proper layout instead of making do from a modern day jet :)Thanx alky(at)shaw.ca replace the (at)George "Alky
  9. >George, have you dug up any good colour pics of the>orange/red livery? There's a fellow over at Trev Morson's>forum asking ....>>http://www.douglasdc3.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=291>>Mark>>Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumont>VP Fleet, DC-3 Airways>Team Member, MAAM-SIMI've never found a pic of a red/orange scheme on a real life DC-3. The link in your post is the first. My paint on the first page of this thread was an aproximation made from modern day CP jets. I've searched CP pages for any examples of historical DC-3's with that scheme but found only the white top version with the red horizontal stripes. I could be wrong, but I don't think there were any official CP Air red/orange schemes on a DC-3 (?)George "Alky
  10. >Hi George.....just wonderring how you are making out with the>CP Air repaints? :)>>BruceSorry Bruce, I had a computer meltdown and lost all of my recent projects. I've got everything re-installed and up and running but haven't started to "re-do" those projects. Every time I think I should the ambition drains away LOL. I will get to it eventually. I'd like to do the orange version as well as the vintage red striped version. Maybe it could be a package (?)Thanx for the interest, it helps to stir up the juices LOL.George "Alky
  11. I had to do a restore on my computer and now when I try to add fixed windows to a panel FS Panel Studio refuses to cooperate. I have the fixed window files in the same folder as the panel and when clicking on the arrow as in forward left, and then clicking on change, I can choose the bmp and click open but the image doesn't appear even though the path is there :(I'm wondering if there's a setting in the options of FS Panel that I have wrong because otherwise it seems to work as before and I had no trouble before re-installing the program (?)Thanx.
  12. I believe if one of the panels in a particular model appeals to you then backing up the original folder and "copying" the preferred panel's folder to the aircraft of choice would work, as long as the models are similar. You wouldn't use an amphibian panel on a cargo ship, but, you probably could. I've swapped panel folders from plane to plane without any real unacceptable issues. A beechcraft panel in a Cessna may be wrong... but it works :)>I thought that just changing the panel.cfg files>might do the job, but it doesn't, so I guess my simple-minded>approach is not on. Is there anything WE can do or does it>depend upon more extensive programming on your part, which of>course you may not be ready to do at this stage? George "Alky
  13. >The CP Air Orange/Red/Silver is exactly what I was looking>for. Can I get the repaint on Avsim???>>BruceI don't know that it's worthy of AVSIM or anyone but myself for that matter LOL. Like I said I just slapped it together, grand total of about an hour invested :)I'll go have a detailed look at it and see if I can ensure it's of MAAM quality first before I give it to anyone :) George "Alky
