    Flight 1 KingAir B200 (Module Version 1.0)

    Hey ShadyOwl, Just wondering what has happened with your link to Dropbox, it is saying that the file is missing or deleted. I noticed in this forum that you were updating it, just wondering where you are at as I would like to use it with the B200. Thanks, Trooping.
  2. Ed, What is this, quantum physics? Pretty arrogant comments to someone who is a paying customer for your software and was only asking for some help and advice, which is what we do in the flightsim community. Maybe your website should come with a big warning on the front page that only superhuman intellectual minds of the highest order should dare purchase your brilliant software....... Now that we have established that I have no clue what I am doing and that I am faint at heart, thanks for the answer, now I understand that you need to create a primary 2d panel in order to have an individual pop-up gauge. With that said, I'll be looking at Flight1's G1000 software instead, considering this is the insults Im going to get for asking a question. Have a ###### day ######. Trooping.
  3. Hi Ed, Thanks for the response. Unfortunately I changed the panel.cfg as you suggested but it still does the same thing; Panel config entry was changed to PFD0 as in the picture. Result still the same.... The reason I put PFD1 was because this is thedescribed on your website instructions. Am I missing something here? So is there something wrong still? Trooping
  4. Good Evening Ed, I have just recently purchased P3Dv3.1 and wanted to install the G1000 PFD and Audio Panel as a pop up panel for the Flight1 B200. First things first, I know people are probably wondering why I am asking this as the F1 B200 already has a G1000. Well, Im planning a simpit based on this aircraft, and it only allows 1 PFD ( the pilots ) to be displayed as a 2D popup. You also cannot remove the bezels. It also does not have an audio panel pop-up. Hence I want the Mindstar G1000 PFD's and Audio Panels set up for both pilot and copilot. To start with, I have a dedicated Simulator computer which has no anti-virus installed, I have Windows Defender turned off and I have the DEP cleared. I always run every program as an administrator. Everything went well in the initial install, no errors or anything like that so straight away I do not believe I am having any permissions issues or issues with the install. I downloaded the installer from your website today so I am presuming this is the latest installer that works with P3Dv3.1? I also have P3D on a separate SSD, and this is where I directed the G1000 installer to. I am running Windows 7. I have had your software for a while, and I have always flown the pre-loaded G1000 Cessna’s in FSX from the virtual cockpit before I switched to P3D, so I never went through the process of installing the G1000 as a pop up, and it is now that I am running into problems. What I am doing is not working. I am starting with trying to install the PFD as a pop-up, which after what I presumed to be the correct actions in going about setting this up, when I go to Views-Instrument Panel- Mindstar PFD in the P3D menu it just loads a black square on the screen and immediately crashes P3D back to the desktop as per the pictures below; I started by creating a PFD in the G1KSetup, then went into the panel.cfg of the Flight1 B200 and made the correct ( are they? ) entries as per the documentation on your website. Where does this gauge go? As in when I create one as a Twin Turbine Style, where can I check where it actually is. Should it not be in the gauge.ini file once it is created? Mine is not. Also, in regards to the gauge.ini file, your website lists this as the correct name for this file, however in my files it is just named "G1000", there is no .ini after it as in the picture below; Should it be like that? I have a suggestion for your website as well - you really need to update it. To me it is pretty confusing, especially when everything is referring to FSX yet on this forum you mention that everything has been updated for P3D. You make reference to an updated installer on this forum, but the link is dead and on your website there is nothing that suggests that the installer that you download is the correct one and that it will work for P3D. The installer even still says for "Microsoft Flight Simulator". Surely things like this can be updated..... Lastly, am I correct in saying that the Mindstar G1000 can only be a configured as a pop-up in an aircraft that is natively on P3D and any add-ons you put on there through changing the panel.cfg file of that particular aircraft? Anyway, Im at my patience limit with this. I have spent hours trying to figure out what's wrong, but nothing seems to work. Yes, I have uninstalled and re-installed. A lot..... Can you please help me out. I like your software, always have, but this is frustrating! Also, someone named Gray supposedly has this exact same setup that I am trying to achieve with the F1 Citation Mustang. I do not have this aircraft, therefore cannot access the F1 support forum to find out how he did this or at least get some general information. If anyone reading this has tried installing the G1000 as a pop-up in P3Dv3.1, and especially the F1 B200, I'm all ears!!!!! Trooping

    Cannot resize gauges

    Reinhard, Ok well I think I have just discovered a hardware incompatibility issue. It turns out it was my keyboard. After pulling my hair out, re-installing, praying to the gods etc, I almost gave up. Then I thought what the hell, may as well change out my keyboard with my old keyboard and mouse. Success. It worked. I have a dedicated helo simpit ( not a desk ), and along with my new computers I purchased the Logitech TK820 keyboard. These are the wireless keyboards with a mouse pad built in. I wanted that so I did not have to have a separate mouse in the simpit. Well I don't know why, but the keyboard works perfectly with everything else. It for some reason just does not work with re-sizing your gauges. You can drag and drop and everything else, just not re-size with the + and - key or by left clicking and expanding ( scolling mouse wheel ) on the pad. So you might want to post this as a possible hardware issue/conflict with your software. Second issue, it turns out that I had version 2.56 of the Dodosim add-on. After discovering this, I went to your website and downloaded the current 2.95 version. I originally purchased the dodosim add-on from FS Pilot Shop. I only re-downloaded the add on yesterday from their website, so you might want to let them know that they may have an out of date version. While I am on the topic of the Dodosim add-on, the RPM gauge does not follow the one on the Dodosim instrument panel. It just goes from 0 to 100% straight away, while the Dodosim gauge is still winding up. Are you aware of this problem or is it just my issue ( again ) Strange stuff dude........

    Cannot resize gauges

    Hey Rheinhart,My computer specs are;Processor - AMD 8350Motherboard - Gigabyte 990UDX-FA ( rev 4.0 )RAM - AMD Entertainment Series 8gbDrives - 3 x Kingston 250gb SSD's ( one for windows, one for FSX and one for P3D )I am running Windows 7, FSX acceleration. No other add-ons besides F1 GTN 750/650, ORBX PNW and payware helicopters.I have everything related to FSX installed in my F: drive, which is a dedicated FSX SSD. I do not let programs install into the usual programs86 etc drive that it usually defaults to. I have never had a problem with this before so I do not think that may be the problem as the gauges work fine. Just cant resize them.Yes I am aware of the locking of the instruments, this works fine but I do not think it is related to my issue....I am going to un-install everything and re-install it this evening and see what happens.Trooping Hey Rheinhart,My computer specs are;Processor - AMD 8350Motherboard - Gigabyte 990UDX-FA ( rev 4.0 )RAM - AMD Entertainment Series 8gbDrives - 3 x Kingston 250gb SSD's ( one for windows, one for FSX and one for P3D )I am running Windows 7, FSX acceleration.

  7. Hello, I just recently purchased a new computer for FSX. I have Panel Builder, Panel Builder EFIS and the Dodosim add-on. Everything seems to have installed fine, the gauges are all working as they should but there is one big problem - I cannot resize the gauges. I have tried everything according to the manual, left clicking on the mouse and then the scroll wheel, or using the + and - keys, but nothing is working. ( and yes my keyboard and mouse are working correctly ) Is there something I am missing with this setup? It worked perfectly on my old computer. Have you had this problem before? Could it be an issue with the latest release? I just re-downloaded the very latest release from your website and the Dodosim add-on from the FS Pilot Shop website. In regards to my setup, I am using a single computer setup, and the gauges are being dragged across to 3 10 inch monitors for the instruments. I initially thought it might be a monitor issue, but they are working fine and the gauges will not re-size even if I drag them bag to the original ( main ) monitor. I really don't want to have to go through another un-install/re-install process. Getting sick of it!!! Any ideas? Thanks, Trooping
