  1. bLindyee provided me with the answer; I was using the wrong sim variables. If anyone else is trying to do the same, use H:Generic_Lwr_MENU_ADV_INC and H:Generic_Lwr_MENU_ADV_DEC
  2. Scripting newb here and I'm trying to get hardware buttons to increase and decrease the lower data knob (below the MFD) in order to move the checklist cursor around the check lists using the simvars H:Generic_Lwr_data_INC and H:Generic_Lwr_Data_DEC. I got a hardware button to work to check a list item complete using the H:Generic_Lwr_Data_Push simvar using the script "1 (>H:Generic_Lwr_Data_Push)" and I assumed I could use the same format for the increase and decrease, but that's not working. Any advice for this beginner? Thanks
  3. I'm a bit surprised that the SDK is a very distant 4th so far; I would have thought it would have been among the top items. I am not a developer...at least not in FS-land. I've never even looked at the SDK. However, I AM a consumer of the SDK in my purchasing of all the planes, scenery, weather add-ons, utilities, etc. that developers create. Without the developers using their talent, my interest in this hobby would have died a long time ago. Yes, I want ATC, I want seasons, I want helicopters, etc., but first and foremost I want third parties to have access to provide me their work as close to product launch as possible. What I have interest in, someone else does not and vice versa. That's where 3PD come in. They cater to each of us and we can customize the platform to be exactly what each of us has interest in.
  4. I am sure that I am not doing something right, but the pilot side HSI is frozen; it does not turn as the airplane turns. I'm fairly certain this isn't a bug as I saw it turning in the live stream last night. I can turn the OBS heading and the compass face moves as well as the autopilot heading bug but the gyro doesn't seem to be working. I also looked for documentation so I could read up on how to configure the HSI as well as all of the instrumentation on the panel and do not find any manual of any kind. That would be very helpful for each of the airplanes.
  5. I have had the same problem a couple of times. It has occurred to me prior to v1.5. It does not occur often and I haven't been able to faithfully reproduce the problem so I figured it was operator error. George Shimada
  6. By looking at my profile, you can see that I come from the EXTREME silent crowd. My momma taught me, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." My wife says it with even more clarity, "Build up or shush up." PMDG, from the extreme silent crowd; Keep up the awesome work and know that many have your back. George Shimada
  7. I completed a flight being careful of com frequency. That seems to work, no flaps up on that flight! Thank you for solution!
  8. I am having same issue as well. Nothing works until I get to runway entry procedure and the FO starts responding correctly. Speech recognition is fine as captain green bar is picking up my words fine. Also did complete uninstall and reinstall of Ngx and FS2crew. Still same problem.George
  9. Speedbird144, Rereading your post, I think you already succeeded. If you can open up XGauge, then it worked. As VonMar did, I would try and install to ALL aircraft....or at least try and install to the non WL versions of NGX. I did it manually, steps below:As VonMar did, I would try and install to ALL aircraft....or at least try and install to the non WL versions of NGX. I did it manually, steps below:1. Go to your flight simulator folder (wherever you put it on your computer)SimObjectsAirplanesPMDG 737-800NGXPanel folder2. Make a backup of panel.cfg3. Open up panel.cfg in Notepad or Wordpad.4. Find lines that start with "Lower DU" and "[Window 8]"5. Make it look like this://// Lower DU////[Window08]//BACKGROUND_COLOR=30,30,30//size_mm=451, 424//window_size = 0.2348958, 0.3533333//position=8//visible=0//ident=408//zorder=95//gauge00=PMDG_737NGX!DU, 0, 0, 451, 424, LOWER #4[Window08]size_mm=240,193position = 5Visible = 0ident = 14991gauge00=XGauge!WeatherMap,0,0,240,193I basically commented out the original PMDG reference to the 2d gauge and then added the code to replace with XGauge. I recommend changing size a bit as this size is too small. I just resize when I bring it up and have been too lazy to resize in the cfg file.6. Save panel.cfg7. You are good to go.Hope this helps. Again, by doing this, it adds XGauge to both the non-WL AND WL versions of the 800.George Shimada
  10. My issue was that I was only installing into just the 800 WL. I agree that it probably works fine when you tell the installer to install into all aircraft. I am betting that the installer would even work if I just installed into the 800 no WL.George Shimada
  11. I had the same issue trying to install X Gauge into the 800-WL. I finally figured it out by looking at the Panel.cfg inside the 800-WL directory and found that it is basically a blank file. I then went into panel.cfg of the non WL version and manually inserted the X Gauge lines (I "stole" the lines from X Gauge installer successfully inserting the gauge into the default C172) into the cfg file. I commented out the Shift-9 in the existing file(I Believe the lower DU since I never bring that 2d panel up). That worked, even in the 800-WL. Apparantly, the WL versions are using the panel config files from the non WL version. George Shimada
  12. Has anyone successfully installed XGauge into the NGX panel? When I use the Panel Install Wizard, I get a message stating that the gauge is already installed. I've tried the uninstall option and then install, but get the same message. When I open the panel.cfg file, there is nothing there. Thanks.George Shimada
  13. I have the same problem with Flight1's Mustang. I've noticed that it only happens to me in the higher elevations, i.e. when approaching FL280 and higher. I am unable to climb to assigned flight level until the TAT returns to normal and I am usually about to stall just trying to maintain altitude.
