  1. I'm currently building some of my own switches, and hardware using the GSA-010 board from Flight Illusion. First, I'd like to say how much I appreciate using the GSA-010 board has been from Flight Illusion. I was able to wire up my switches and LEDs without any hassle, and it works great with the FI G-Step configurator software. Support from Flight Illusion has also been second to none, and my preferred go to source for flight sim panel gear. I'm now working on wiring up a few potentiometers (both slide and rotary). The slide pots are used for my TPM, and am currently testing on 20k and 50k slide pots. However, when I wire them up to the board, and running the test, I'm getting approximately 0-1000 input from one side of the slider to the middle, then the middle and to the other side goes from 1000 to 1023. I'm getting the same results on both slide pots tested. I've tried adjusting my potentiometer slide limits (negative, zerocross, positive), but have not had much luck. Does anyone know why the second half of the slider is not balanced with the first half of the input values? Ideally, I'd like a balanced progression from 0 - 1023 (-4096 - 16384) across the slider. I welcome any tips on wiring slide pots.
  2. I'm in the midst of wiring up everything for my c172 trainer. Gauges are installed, GPS is up, TRC radio control board in the mail, and my Brunner yoke comes in on Monday. I still need to wire the switches and sliding pots which will be done once I get a couple FI extender boards delivered. Everything seems to be lining up. However, I would like to protect the rear side of the dash panel, and was wondering if anyone has come up with any ingenious solutions on their own build? For the top, I would need something that is flexible enough for the top trim, and have been leaning towards foam board, and possibly using that material for the back as well (surrounding the yoke base), and have wood providing the strength and support for the panel frame. Any materials that I should also stay away from that might induce electrical shock that might be easily missed when today's building supplies?
  3. UPDATE: So thankful for @DavidP's write up found here: This solved my issues, and would be nice if emuteq.com updated their documentation with this post.
  4. For context, I'm running P3D v4.4.16, and RXP Garmin GNS 530. RXP.INI and/or RXPGNS.INI did not exist in C:\ProgramData\Reality XP\Common\Settings, so I created the Settings sub-folder, and added both INI's (since the install instructions mention both filenames), and added keyboard mapping to there.

  5. I've also tried the following, and still no luck: Disabled Windows Hot Key Shortcuts, and reverted to default install commands (using 'win +', instead of custom 'shift +'). Type gpedit in the Search and then click Edit group policy. (This will open Local Group Policy Editor). Navigate to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > File Explorer. In the right-side pane, look for Turn off Windows + X hotkeys and double click on it. Check Enabled and click OK. Restart the computer to make the settings take effect. Disabled UAC and ran P3D as administrator. Also added [KEYBOARD] RXP ini settings into the aircraft RealityXP.GNS.INI file (trying everything here that I can think of). Still no luck. @RXP I've sent you a PM, maybe there's something you know that I haven't tried yet?
  6. I've also updated the thread that @Simicro mentioned, and have put a hold on A2A products until they can integrate RXP GPS.
  7. I've been trying to install the RXP GNS 530 software to map to the hardware buttons. I've read a few posts online that there have been issues doing this with Win10 since it already has win+{key} functions mapped to Window programs. After noticing that the default install instructions have failed regarding the button mapping, I've tried remapping the buttons in FSUIPC.ini to use 'shift' instead of 'win', plus changed the win+F13-F15 shortcuts to be shift+3-5 since my keyboard doesn't have the F13-F16 keys. Nothing has worked, and has rendered my GNS 530 hardware buttons useless. Has anyone successfully mapped the RXP GNS 530 buttons to work with the hardware? I'm at my wits end after spending the day trying to figure this out... Is my only working option to downgrade to Windows 7??
  8. It is native to 4096x2160 if I make the 4k TV my main default monitor. If I use my ultrawide 34" as my main default, P3D only shows 3440x1440 as max resolution on my 4k. My 4k TV is a 43" LG UHD Smart TV.
  9. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I didn't save as a default flight, shutdown P3D, then restart with the default Maule. That absolutely did the trick! I haven't switched back to the A2A Cessna yet, but the Maule does indeed allow for the 4096 texture setting to be applied, and saved!
  10. I am using CYSE from OrbX which is a free airport near my area (https://orbxdirect.com/product/cyse) and cycle between airports that are P3D default, such as CYVR. I'm also using REX Worldwide Airports HD add-on.
  11. Thanks for the advice, I will have to keep that in mind in the future. I've tried exiting my scenario, changed to a P3D Maule, set texture res to 4096, then saved. Selected a new airport, loaded the scenario with the Maule, and it still defaults to 2048. I tried changing back to 4096 within the scenario, but it still reverts. Might be an addon that's overwriting, I just can't seem to find out which application is doing it. If I don't solve this by tonight, I will most likely try a fresh install, and install each add-on one by one, until I find the culprit. I have a C172 Trainer from Flight Illusions and SimKits coming in, so preparing for 4k before they arrive.
  12. Ok, thanks, so this is not a normal issue I take it. I might perform a clean reinstall, and see if that works. Thanks.
  13. Hey, had a quick question regarding the texture resolution settings in P3D v4. I currently upgraded to a 43" 4k TV from a 34" ultrawide. I'm running OrbX, REX, and A2A Cessna 172 trainer on a GTX 1070 video card. I plan on upgrading to a GTX 2080 Ti soon to help out with the 4k resolution. I've set my P3D resolution to 4096x2160x32, but when I set my Texture Resolution under 'Image and Texture Quality' settings to 'Ultra - 4096x4094', it keeps reverting to 'High - 2048x2048'. Is there any reason why it won't allow me to stick with the 4k resolution? Are there any other settings that need to be adjusted?
