  1. You are totally right - I could add them all manually much quicker than making a batch file, I just wondered whether anyone had needed to make such a file, if for example they were adding a large number of gauges at once. Judging by the responses, I guess there isn't such a file/program to do this, so I will just have to motivate myself to doing it all manually.
  2. I have used batch files for simple things, such as globally editing things in the aircraft.cfg files, adding gagues to all panels (this works fine when the gagues are just sound outputs, such as GPWS, as these dont need a new window, so I can just use a .BAT script to add a new line to each panel.cfg) and so on. However, as you say, it is very dificult to make it work for something as complex as adding a new window, and adding gagues to that window - I was just wondering whether anyone had needed to do this and taken the time to make a .BAT file, and whether they would be willing to share this BAT script with us, or whether there is a program that does a similar thing. Thank you very much for the advice.
  3. Thank you very much - to be honest though, I was looking for something freeware - I could add the gagues to all of my panels manually, but it would take a lot of time, so I was just looking for a faster way. Thank you very much for the suggestion. I would have thought there would be some kind of BAT command that could be used to carry out this, but I haven't found anything online yet.
  4. Does anyone know of a program that can add gagues to all aircraft panels automatically - I want it to; Add a new window to [Windows Titles] section Add a new [Window XX] section - with the details of the gague If there isn't a program, does anyone have a .BAT file or similar that can carry out this task?
  5. Sorry, I probably didn't explain myself properly, I installed it fine, and was able to use it outside of FSX, but I couldn't use it within FSX - is it just an external program? or can it be used within FSX? Actually, although Airport Chart Gauge needs to be installed in every panel, it is quite simple - it changes the panel.cfg files all for you, so it can be installed extremely quickly.
  6. Thank you very much for the suggestion. I tried it, but it seemed rather confusing to setup, I will try again at some point, and hopefully I can get to understand how to set it up and use it. Also, does this just offer a diagram of the airport, or can it calculate the taxi route from the runway to gate? - If it is just a diagram, then the gauge I currently have installed - Airport Chart Gauge is very similar, but for me was far simpler to setup and operate. Thanks again for the suggestion.
  7. I struggled also to find them on AVSIM library, some repaints but you would have needed to have the base model. I found one here though: https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/3874/fsx-virgin-atlantic-airways-airbus-a340-300/ and I found that the base model is on AVSIM library. They have retired their -300s though, so that may be why you struggled to find them.
  8. I have recently downloaded apchart.zip, and although very useful, and I have been trying to use it as an alternative to FSX ATC to route me to a gate. However, I have found it rather difficult to use at large airports - is it possible to find the location of the gates, or do you have to do what I am doing currently, and search the entire airport to try and find your gate number? Thanks in advance.
  9. I have downloaded that, but I find it difficult to find the gates - I see there is a list of gates/parking, but I don't know how to correlate this with their position at the airport. Do you just have to search the whole airport for the gate you want? or is there a quicker way to find your gate? Thanks in advance.
  10. Obviously I know that isn't how you spell it - I realised my mistake as soon as I signed up, but I cannot find how to change it. Edit: Ignore that above, I just took another look in the settings and managed to find out how to change it.
  11. Having tried some different ideas, I found the best option for me was to use GSX - I can choose a gate for ground services when on approach or on the runway and then navigate myself to the gate, without the ATC, hoping an AI aircraft doesn't beat me there. The only thing I am trying to figure out is how to generate a route from the runway to my chosen gate - I would use your method of using charts, but many airports have changed since the release of FSX, so I'm guessing a lot of the charts would not match the airport layout in the game?
  12. Is there any freeware software that can generate a route from your current position in an airport to another position of your choice, such as from a runway to gate that you choose? This could be just a list of taxiways, to follow to get to your destination (similar to the FSX ATC, but you choose the gate). I would use charts for the airport, but some airports have changed since FSX was released and I cannot find any freeware software that generates charts for the airports based on their layout in FSX. Thanks everyone for your help.
  13. Thanks for this info - I may consider some addons in the future, but for now I'll probably just put up with the FSX ATC. I would do that, but the issue is I get AI parked in my gate - it would be good if you could secure the gate and make sure AI can't park in it while on approach/on the runway.
  14. @charliearon - I guessed this would be the case, but wanted to make sure. It is a shame that there is not a work around to try and find out which gate you will be assigned or being able to choose your gate before landing.
  15. @charliearon - it is not that I am in a rush, I just wanted to make it seem more realistic. When I see pilots in real life exiting the runway and then taxiing straight to the gate, it makes it feel far less realistic when using FSX and waiting for clearance every time I land.
