    GTN 750 ?

    It's quite sad that Carenado hasn't gone back to this aircraft and actually updated the VC model to incorporate the GTN750/650 yet. The 1900D is one of their better planes when you don't use the "FMS" that simply ties into the default FSX/P3D GPS. Would be nice if they added such functionality but I'm not about to hold my breath. Thanks to wildtomcat and Bert for sharing this panel edit.

    Aerosoft Diamond DA20-100 'Katana' 4X?

    Same thing here Ryan, I can select the RXP version in the Avionics Swapper panel, however it doesn't replace the default GPS. I've also tried editing it manually with the same result. That is why I was wondering if anyone had an idea regarding where externally, outside the main P3D directory, the aircraft might be storing the selected panel.cfg files... :/
  3. Just a quick question for the more advanced panel editors on here. Have any off you guys taken on the challenge of using these new V2 Rxp 530 units with the Aerosoft Diamond DA20-100 'Katana' 4X? I fell in love with that aircraft when I first purchased it so many years ago for FSX, having it in P3D with a working RXP 530 would be a blessing... However it's coding is far to complicated for my rookie panel editing "skills". Any thoughts?

    Carenado Cessna CT206H Stationair GNS 530 Alignment This one is a little different as the default Carenado GPS 500 has animated knobs built into the model of the cockpit and sort of interferes with the cursor and radio swap click spots on the two knobs. Therefore you have to run the RXP530.exe file located in the "SimObjects\Airplanes\Carenado CT206H_Stationair" folder. Then you can replace the GPS by using the built in Reality XP in-sim editor then adding the alignment coordinates below: [Vcockpit01] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=512,512 visible=0 pixel_size=513,513 texture=$Panel_1 gauge00=rxpGNS2!GNS_530_1, 10, 0,500,366 gauge01=CT206H!ToggleCARG1000, 0, 0, 32 , 16

    Alabeo Piper Sport RXP GNS 530 alignment. 1) Simply install the RXP 530 by replacing the default GPS via the Reality XP in sim menu. 2) For a perfect alignment copy and paste the beneath virtual cockpit coordinates. [Vcockpit01] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=512,512 visible=0 pixel_size=513,513 texture=$Panel_1 gauge00=rxpGNS2!GNS_530_1, 5, -2,506,372 gauge01=PS28!ToggleCARG1000, 64,0, 256, 32 gauge02=ALSound_PS28!CarSound, 0, 0, 1, 1 gauge03=ALPS28!SYS_SMOKE, 0,0,1,1 gauge04=GAUGE_PS28!Gauge_CLOCK_DIG, 0, 0,1 , 1

    F1 to RXP GTN Gauge ready

    Hey Ryan, the link to the Baytower RV7 fix seems to be down. Do you think you could perhaps re-upload it or send it? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Update for C90B HD P3D4

    Quick question for any of you that might have done this with the none GTX version of the C90 that might save me some time. Have any of you used the bezel from the Avidyne EX500 to display the GTN 750? I don't care if it's a little warped or out of ratio, it would just make it easier to view the 750 when bringing up approach charts and when doing approaches. Where it is right now, between the seats, makes it completely useless. :/ Anyone ever do a panel.cfg like I mentioned above? Cheers fellas.

    Update for C90B HD P3D4

    I might grab this aircraft and simply switch out some of the avionics with the ones offered by Integrated Simavionics (ISG). The new model where the GTN has been placed would be perfect for ISG's GNSXLS FMS.

    Fixed It

    Looks like the installers were updated 3 days after I downloaded the ones I had on file... Go figure. Both planes are working fine now.

    Update for C90B HD P3D4

    Wow, I almost just bought this as I never bothered getting it before... After seeing how they shoved the GTN in the most idiotic place possible, I'll stay way clear of it. Thank you for the heads up with the screenshot showing us this "update". I also can't believe these people are asking 39.95$ for that aircraft seeing that the GTX version is the same price. :(

    Absolutely disgraceful performance

    Thanks for all the help Rob, it's greatly appreciated, especially the guide you put together as it's extremely informative. When I get home from work I'll be doing my fresh vanilla install of P3D v4.1 tonight as all my new drives are now in their respective bays. It's quite nice to now be able to afford 1TB SSD drives as they have really come down in price compared to 2011 when I purchased my first one. It's incredible just how much space P3D takes up on a drive after you've installed OrbX's entire catalogue and a vast collection of AAA payware aircraft. Btw, love your video's on YouTube. Watching them in 4K on my new Samsung QLED 65" curved screen is quite impressive. Cheers Andrew

    Absolutely disgraceful performance

    Yeah, I do have duplicate entries... I have duplicate entries in DLL.XML *NOT* in the same file but in different windows file directories. In "AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3" there's the same entries as in the DLL.XML file in "C:\ProgramData\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3" Which is the proper directory that Lockheed Martin reads from? Do the entries need to be in both DLL.XML files in both directories?

    Absolutely disgraceful performance

    One of the reasons I picked it up was because of how smoothly you had it running in your video's Rob, even in 4K, lol! I use a single monitor for the sim, just a standard 23" 1080p display. I have a couple other monitors that I use to put un-docked gauges on like the Flight1 GTN 750 and panels for the Majestic Q400 Pro, but I don't span across multiple monitors in 3D. I'm using the latest drivers and that's the sad thing, even when set at unlimited frame-rate my card is only being utilized at 40% of what it normally runs at in X-Plane. I'll give it a shot in P3D v4 when I get it installed, I have several 1TB SSD's that I need to install and quite a bit of backing up to do off of old mechanical HDD's before I get around to it. I'd love to hear from anyone running P3D 3.4 just as a comparison. I'm surprised there's no refund option from Carenado as they can simply revoke serial numbers via their online installation system. Ah well, guess I'll see. :/
  14. I picked up this aircraft last night just to check out it's "Synthetic Vision" capabilities in P3D 3.4, I am far from impressed. I haven't installed P3D v4 yet as I'm in the process of getting rid of older mechanical drives in favor of all SSD's, however, my system is more than capable of maintaining 40fps in the PMDG 777 while approaching FSDT's KORD with scenery settings pretty much maxed out. Does anyone know what could be causing the worst performance I've ever seen in any FSX/P3D aircraft? Is the coding that bad on this product? I played with the settings in the config tool and it helped slightly, but at the same time only by 1 to 3 FPS. I purchased this aircraft over at PC Aviator, is anyone here aware whether or not in any way I could get a refund or in the very least some kind of credit? I own every Alabeo and Carenado aircraft that uses analogue gauges, I have always stayed FAR away from their glass panels in the past because I knew the performance and coding is quite poor, but to average 15 to 20 FPS flying around PAVD with an i7 7700K running at 5.2ghz, EVGA GTX 1080Ti FTW 3, 32GB DDR4 3400Mhz Mem on a Samsung Evo Pro SSD is absolutely horrendous. :(

    Complete RXP Retrofit

    Is the transparency being caused by the fact that the default VC textures are in bitmap format instead of .DDS? Would a simple conversion be the solution? I would be interested in getting the solution to this problem as well, it would be greatly appreciated.
