  1. Add-Ons for the Beechcraft Baron B58 and King Air 350 would be nice. Thanks.
  2. Installed the update a couple of days ago and it's working perfectly. Thanks! Guido
  3. When you run the panel you can change the settings of the gauges. Do a right click on the gauge and select settings. Then you can select the engine. This is described in the manual as well. Regards, Guido
  4. It seems that flight plans aren't working at all. Everytime I try to use a flight plan the same things happen that I described in my first post. Is there anyone who is using flight plans successfully? Bye, Guido
  5. I'm using the GPS addon with panelbuilder and it behaves strange when I'm using flight plans. I have a simple flight plan like Airport A NDB 1 NDB 2 NDB 3 Airport B Starting at Airport A i activate the flight plan and after take off switch the autopilot on. The aircraft goes to NDB 1 and on arrival changes course to NDB 2. At NDB 2 it changes course to NDB 3. But on the way to NDB 3 it suddenly heads back to NDB 1.The GPS shows that NDB 1 is the next destination. After arriving at NDB 1 it heads direct to NDB 3. But before arriving at NDB 3 the plane heads back to NDB 1. This back and forth continues until I switch of the autopilot or deactivate the flight plan. This happens with different flight plans and on different legs. Has anybody else encounterd such a behavior? I'm using PanelBuilder 2.98 and the MFGGPS Addon 1.50. Bye, Guido
  6. In the last couple of days i did a lot of testing and found some solutions for the problems i had with Panelbuilder: I could prevent the Simconnect interface from randomly crashing with the windows option "run as administrator". It seems that Panelbuilder works much better with the Simconnect interface than with the FSUIPC interface. The annunciators work as expected and the RPM gauge shows the correct prop rpm with the default King Air. And i learned that it is useful to use the ComsChecker tool to see how Simconnect variables change and which values they have. These informations can be used to configure the annunciators or gauges.
  7. Hi, currently I'm building a little homecockpit for flying smaller 2 engined aircrafts like the Beechcraft Baron or King Air. But I run into some problems building the panels and I need some advice. I'm using 2 computers: one for FSX and one for Panelbuilder Computer 1: i5, 6600k, 4GHz, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, GTX1060 Win 7 Ultimate, 64bit, FSX, Accellerator Pack, FSUIPC 4.963 (registered version), Panelbuilder Interface 2.97, some sceneries Computer 2: Intel Pentium G4400, 3.3GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, On-Board-Graphics Win 7 Ultimate, 64bit, Panelbuilder 2.97, PanelBuilder GPS-Add-On, ButtonMapper 2 I've got couple of questions: Which interface should I use? Simconnect or FSUIPC? I noticed that some gauges behave different depending on the used interface. The EGT-Gauge for example shows different temperature with the default Beechcraft Baron. And the Flap Position Indicator moves slowly from one position to another with FSUIPC but jumps with Simconnect. Currently I'm using the FSUIPC interface because the Simconnect interface crashes sometimes when i operate the GPS, the radios or the autopilot. Are there any pros and cons? How many gauges can PanelBuilder handle on one computer? In my current setup the computer for PanelBuilder has 3 displays connected. One for each pilot displaying the main flight gauges and one for the engine gauges, the radios und the annunciators. I need some advice on configuring some annuncitors: How do i configure an annunciator for the parking brake? The default Beechcraft Baron has an annunciator which lights up when the flaps are down and the gear is up. How do I setup such an annunciator with PanelBuilder? How do I configure a Fuel Crossfeed Annunciator? I could not figure out which values i should use in the configuration. Is there any kind of manual or list of values which could be used for the annunciators? I looked in the FSUIPC manuals but couldn't find anything helpful. And I think I found some bugs: With the default Beechcraft King Air the Prop RPM gauge is not working. The gauge allways shows max RPM. With the default Beechcraft Baron the Cowl Flap Indicator only works for engine 1. The Fuel Select Indicator does not show left crossfeed. Any hints or suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks, Guido
