  1. Glad someone else noticed. On All "literally" 101 aircraft I own EXCEPT this one, my ELITE avionics will control the transponder. This one has to be done with the mouse AND even when it is tuned in the stock FSX ATC does NOT respond correctly. THIS IS THE ONLY aircraft with this problem. I tried finding a transponder which is like this on ANY of the Alabeo or Carenado aircraft. If so it could be swapped out and would function correctly. I remember this one is digital. I used to swap out the ADF's on a lot of aircraft "alabeo,carenado" with the 2 frequencies showing the active and backup and it had the new timer installed. It came out on one of the newer aircraft and I liked it so much it was a simple swap. There MAY be another transponder but I spent 15 minutes and did not find one, so I think this is a first digital one of its kind and THUS it should have stuck to earlier protocol. Untested most likely
  2. That is puzzling how you did it. I am scrounging around in curiosity to check out the possibilities on how you did this while waiting for a Mod from you. "Tim-HH" . In Microsoft Flight SimulatorX/Gauges/....there is GAUGE_M20R.CAB and the AP autopilot. This stuff is encoded and to figure out how to open in a rewriteable and readable language is brilliant in my book. And IF this is it you still have to figure out the solution. However when I went to your avsim library it goes WAY back to a lot of work you did in flight sim 2004 so understandably your ablilitys have been tried and seasoned. I have the MAAM b-25 which was one of my favorties and saw your repaints. Your repaints on A2a's are incredible and I love the Navy A2a T6 Texan work. Your quite the painter. I can not imagine JUST starting this hobby and diving into all the things you have to understand to install and fix everything involved in this hobby "cold turkey". It took me years and years and years. Thanks for your contributions. I emailed "hopefully correctly" just a few minutes ago. Thanks keith
  3. Just came back from the kitchen thinking about your question. Maybe you mean WITHOUT using another aircraft. I think I read one of Bert's forums awhile back that this is "hardwired" into the model. It would have to be fixed by Alabeo. Usually after SP1 you are at the mercy of Owners who fix the BROKEN NEW aircraft.
  4. I was just looking thru the forums and noticed your question. Do you have any other Alabeo or Carenado aircraft? If you do if the audio panel looks the same and functions go into the Panel.cfg and see what they use. Just looking at the Alabeo PA44 Seminole you can see the Audio panel. My fsx takes up to 15 minutes to turn on with 1/2 US in megascenery etc... so I do not know what this audio looks like??

  5. Thanks, just checked it today. I added the Carenado CT206H beacon light as a replacement a couple days ago but did not check it. I was VERY impressed with the lighting when I bought the 206. The strobes on the wings of the 206 at night casting unto the tarmac or runway was an awesome surprise. I have the 441 and just about all the Carenado and Alabeo aircraft. Thanks very much as this fixed it perfect, I did exactly as your instructions.
  6. Found this awhile back before Carenado came up with the idea OR this may be the guy who is working with them " the inventer" on the synthetic project. You can see in this video all the possiblites. almost endless, BUT they need to stick in FSX case with realism pertaining to modern aircraft systems. Had family at Las Vegas concert and have been busy so I am not as complete on this as I should be. YES there was more then one shooter. My wife has not been sleeping as she left hours earlier from a friends wedding close to there with my son and one of my daughters. Keep these familys in mind please.
  7. I have not had time to go back to fsx yet but it is on top of the tail. Seems like it was a beacon WITH a strobe??? The reason I am responding now is thanks for the fix and IF it is the other do you have the fix. It is on top for sure, but will try to get time to turn on FSX. I have an autistic grandson me and my wife are raising and it consumes just about all waking hours.
  8. I managed to get a picture BUT it does not seem as though there is a way to attach it. Tried everything. Maybe they only want text??? Oh well
  9. I will not post a picture yet but the wing strobes and all other lights are perfect. The tailfin beacon light is or has a strobe that is 3 or 4 white boxes from smaller to 6 feet aircraft size. There was this problem awhile back on another Carenado aircraft and someone said to go into EFFECTS and rename ________? to ________? something and that fixed it. Has anyone else had this problem . FSX sp2 windows 8.1
  10. Just bought it on the 40% off sale with a PC Aviator $5 coupon. WHAT A DEAL. I love this airplane. Yes I got it in the VC and it works. I always have popups on my second monitor though. I THINK I have to turn it on with the popup, but the rest of the buttons work on the VC. I will post the entire Panel.CFG here but need to explain a couple things. First the screen on there plate on the Saratoga is wider then the RXP430. A2a on there Texan or the P51 civilian they have narrowed the screen for the RXP430. Next [Window00] and [Window01] I have put the realair dukes and lancair sizing as it is quite a bit smaller and proportional. IT CAN BE RESIZED also. I noticed the Saratoga has a wider 430 and to tall, oblonging the knobs AND is not resizable. If only one monitor the new ones will defineately take up less space. Next in [Vcockpit03] I have put in the Alabeo Chieftain radio audio as the Saratoga, the new Mooney 20R Ovation and the new Alabeo C310 the COM1/2 does not function. So I copied and pasted the Chieftains which DOES work. Any functioning Alabeo or Carendo Radio Audio should work as you HAVE TO OWN THEM to work. Last in [Vcockpit03] DO NOT CHANGE YOUR "gauge01=DIGTTRANS_PA32TC!transponder, 0,101, 512,130", as I have put my Milviz B55 transponder in because everything functions on it and the Carenado/Alabeo is NOT that good. I ALWAYS make 3 folders and change the ICON to something different and rename to 'Original Panel', another one 'Original Aircraft' and 'Original Sound'. I copy and paste the originals in these folders then when I am done with the aircraft I have an entire copy of ALL AIRCRAFT for backup on an external drive and on my second internal drive. MANY times this has saved me. In fact I have copied the entire FSX to another drive which when disaster has hit I have NEVER had to reinstall which takes weeks with all the control DLL's and add-ons to function. I have Saitek, CH products and Elite, and the original Microsoft forcefeed back sidewinder all functioning at the same time..not an easy feat. The famous FSUIPC has detected an incompatible etcc...... that's it story over. SOoooooo I make restore points EVERY DAY as windows 8.1 owns my computer, NOT ME. Windows xp was indestructible and I still have two computers with XP that NEVER crash and NEVER change and NEVER need restoring. OK enough of that stuff here you go. //********************************************************* // Alabeo PA32 Saratoga II TC FSX/P3D // Copyright © Alabeo 2014 - All Rights Reserved //********************************************************* [Window Titles] Window00=GNS530 XP Window01=GNS430 XP Window02=Toggle_Control Window03=INFO Window04=ENGINE SETUP Window05=START [VIEWS] VIEW_FORWARD_DIR=10.000, 0.000, 0.000 VIEW_FORWARD_ZOOM=0.5000 //-------------------------------------------------------- [Window00] window_pos=0.739583,0.000000 window_size=0.260417,0.300000 visible=0 ident=15531 zorder=99 gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS530,0,0,100,100 //-------------------------------------------------------- [Window01] window_pos=0.739583,0.300000 window_size=0.260417,0.175000 visible=0 ident=15431 zorder=99 gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS430,0,0,100,100 //-------------------------------------------------------- [Window02] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=500,261 position=0 visible=0 ident=796 window_size= 0.200, 0.200 window_pos= 0.020, 0.160 zorder=5 gauge00=PA32TC!Control_windows, 0,0,500,261 //-------------------------------------------------------- [Window03] file=info.bmp size_mm=555,131 window_size_ratio=1.000 position=0 visible=1 ident=10020 window_size= 0.238, 0.100 window_pos= 0.020, 0.040 gauge00=PA32TC!ToggleCARINFO, 10,10,400,100 //-------------------------------------------------------- [Window04] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=600,653 window_size= 0.350, .500 position=3 visible=0 nomenu=1 ident=10060 gauge00=GAUGEPA32TC!StartWindowsAircraft , 0, 0, 600,653 //-------------------------------------------------------- [Window05] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=600,653 window_size= 0.350, .500 position=5 visible=0 nomenu=1 ident=10050 gauge00=GAUGEPA32TC!StartWindows , 0, 0, 600,653 //-------------------------------------------------------- [Vcockpit01] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=512,512 visible=0 pixel_size=512,512 texture=$Panel_1 gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS530, 0, 0, 512, 372 gauge01=PA32TC!ToggleCAR530, 64,0, 256, 32 //-------------------------------------------------------- [Vcockpit02] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=512,512 visible=0 pixel_size=513,513 texture=$Panel_2 gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS430, -10,-10,512,258 gauge01=PA32TC!ToggleCAR430, 0,0,512,30 gauge02=ALSound_PA32TC!CarSound, 0,0, 1, 1 gauge03=PA32TC!SYS_SMOKE, 0,0,1,1 //-------------------------------------------------------- [Vcockpit03] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=512,512 visible=0 pixel_size=513,513 texture=$Panel_3 //gauge00=Radio_PA32TC!RadioAudio, 0, 0, 512, 99 gauge00=Radio_PA31350!RadioAudio, 0, 0, 512, 99 //gauge01=DIGTTRANS_PA32TC!transponder, 0,101, 512,130 gauge01=B55_XMLGauges!FBS_GTX330, 0,101, 512,130 gauge02=GAUGEPA32TC!Gauge_ENGINE_DIGVC, 0,232, 349,139 gauge03=GAUGEPA32TC!Gauge_Clock, 350,232, 160,162 gauge04=GAUGEPA32TC!Gauge_Anum_TOP, 0, 391, 512, 57 //-------------------------------------------------------- [Vcockpit04] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=512,512 visible=0 pixel_size=1024,1024 texture=$Panel_4 gauge00=GAUGEPA32TC!Gauge_Autopiloto, 0,0,512,119 gauge01=GAUGEPA32TC!Gauge_Anum, 0,120,384,177 gauge02=GAUGEPA32TC!Gauge_Anum_APSEL, 0,299,384,174 Day=255,255,255 Night=223,255,255 Luminous=246,115,119 [Default View] X=0 Y=0 SIZE_X=8192 SIZE_Y=6143
  11. Just noticed something I had added and will explain. In some aircraft I put in the Milviz B55 transponder as everything functions on it. OF COURSE you HAVE to own it. In the Saratoga my gauge01. If I had noticed that I probably would NOT of showed it or would have put it back for this example to not confuse things. I could just see someone copying and pasting and there transponder is now screwed up because of me. OOOOPS It comes up a bit silverfish color to other gauges sometimes. I have put it in one of my favorite Carenado P46T Malibu JetProp and others. Some aircraft the color is perfect. I also put the XML Gauge.Cab right into the panel folder so it does not have to go looking for it. On the Alabeo Audio fix I did NOT do this as Alabeo finding Alabeo does NOT seem to be a problem
  12. I was going to write about this when it first came out but did not and do not know why. Just bought the Saratoga on 40% off sale and noticed it did the same thing. Only Com1 or Com 2 on the Audio works at a time. I like to sometimes use Com 1/2 so the ATIS can be listened to while monitoring traffic on Com 1. Came up with this idea and it works. I noticed on the PA31 350Chieftain that it works proper so I copied and pasted to Panel.cfg. Of course you have to own the Chieftain but any functioning Audio in an Alabeo or maybe even a Carenado aircraft will do. I will show the Chieftain in this example.

  13. Just noticed you Avsim repaints files. Looked at them and your A2a Comanche N8351P has been my favorite on this aircraft for a while. Downloading the C182T N6218B, you have excellent taste. Thanks Keith
  14. Good picture Tim-HH. Very clear and obvious. Thanks Keith
  15. Just checked back...THANKS for the reply. Over at they are selling N288MA a 1999 M20R OVATION which is exactly as Alabeo's model. It is not in the listing page yet but is visible somehow. I found it there and has LOTS of pictures and a LONG description. I think they are in South Carolina. I think there is a youtube with the salesman showing it thru, inside and out. When he turns the battery on the digital readout is there but white and the first part is red on the gauges. In the real one for example with just a battery test...Red point White. I am going to look and will most likely find a flying youtube showing the panel. I sure hope they fix this. This is critical. Surprised no one complained. Young and New I guess.
