    @GitNick Thanks for the info about the current REP version. I'm not surprised it's still not fully compatible as Claudio (from Simcoders) and I didn't find how to fix the issue yet. I'll wait for the 11.30 to hit the release version and probably revisit the mod including the REP compatibility (no promises though). In the meantime, the temporary fix posted previously should take care of the aforementioned issues.

    @GCBraun Hi, It would be possible to create a version with two 750 but the process would require to edit the 172 cockpit object, panel configuration and texture, and the 750 3D models (so they can be placed precisely, not only using the coordinates from the Plane Maker). Someone stubborn enough could do it with the files included in this mod, but as I'm satisfied with the 750/650 configuration and have very little free time, that wouldn't be me ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hello @Andelain, Feel free to use the GTN models and textures from this mod, as long as you mention their origin for any public content (and please send me an email if you do so). For personal use only, you're obviously free to do whatever you see fit with the models and textures. Details are available in the readme.txt included with this mod. Happy modding and flying ! ---- @jefken Thanks for the report !

    Hi @Igrok-kun Could you confirm the Garmin trainer works correctly? Also, did you try using the RXP GTN plugin with any other aircraft? Any luck? (GTNs not displaying anything is usually due to a general issue not related to the mod) [ EDIT: just updated RXP GTN to v2.5.6, without any issue on my end - XP 11.26r2, REP 3.46 ]

    Banging on LR's door would be the most subtle approach I could come up with ๐Ÿ˜‰ Now that VR is getting ironed out, it would be a good time for the users and developers to ask LR to facilitate "third-party" and "custom" instruments integration. The demand is there and XP has always been built around some degree of modularity. But the 2D cockpit era is long gone. Some developers could even offer some EFIS solutions as payware addons (like vFlyteAir or Carenado Dynon EFD 1000). At least the RXP GTNs are getting very popular and most new release offer a 3D implementation. That being said I'm sure most end-user/simmer are unaware of how non-flexible a virtual cockpit configuration could be due to how it's currently implemented in X-Plane.

    Thanks for the report @Wickerman88 What was suspected is that the line endings format was preventing the correct modification of the Cessna_172SP_GTN_cockpit.obj file by the REP installer since I'm using a Windows environment (it changes LE from LF (Unix) to CRLF (Windows)). So I fixed that (manually reverted back to LF) and tested the REP 3.4.6. Unfortunately the mixture lever issue is still present. That's not that surprising as the mod .obj file was saved with CRLF since initial release, and the REP installer worked fine then. I submitted my results to SimCoders and we'll see what could go wrong. In the meantime, you can still use the temporary fix linked to this post. ---- @X P Flyer Thanks for your kind words! I'm glad you're enjoying the mod! That's exactly why I shared it. I'm sure we would have more custom GTNs integrations if the process wouldn't be that painful. So it's best to share what we can ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi, You might want to check if the GTN unit you're using as main navigation device is set to Master in the GTN plugin settings. I left it undefined by default so the user can choose which unit is set to Master.
  8. I'm afraid I don't know what could go wrong with the installer. I thought you were having difficulties getting the suggested trainer versions (in which case I would have helped by uploading the files somewhere else). I'm sure Jean-Luc will drop by soon though. Sorry I can't help with the installation process. I have the v6.41 trainer already installed.
  9. Did you try to download and install the trainer v6.21 as suggested? I don't have any 404 for any of the links in the OP.

    Considering buying, quick question

    Yes. You can toggle any GTN window visibility using a keyboard shortcut or a button. It's easy to configure using the X-Plane keyboard and joystick settings (or the RealityXP.GTN.ini file). Happy flying in X-Plane ๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. If GARMIN and Jeppesen do not provide any outdated database for free, any public version of these (outdated) databases would explicitly infringe the license agreement and copyright laws. As much as we'd like to use the most recent data for any game/simulation, it's still a professional, accurate and reliable, real-world product. The downside is that the up-to-date version does not come for free, and other "outdated but recent" versions are sill protected by licenses agreements and copyright laws (as it should be).

    GTN 750 with Default Cessna 172 with REP?

    @Howiefly13 I've just updated the RealityXP.GTN.ini for my mod (assuming that's the one you're using). I'm not sure it's related but maybe this will help. Also, I would strongly recommend purchasing and using the 650 ๐Ÿ˜‰ It's a fine addition to the 750 and it's also included in different existing aircraft. That poor Skyhawk panel must look broken with a blank GTN unitโ€ฆ I usually use the 650 for its handy default navigation page, TCAS or to manage my frequencies - or sometimes as a secondary terrain awareness device.

    Minor update: - updated RealityXP.GTN.ini file to include the latest improvements (RXP GTN 750/650 Touch X-Plane v2.5.3) The updated file is already included in the mod archive shared in this thread. You can just copy-paste the content of the ini to update your existing version (backup your own settings if necessary):

    You should be fine with the temp fix. No need to reinstall your REP.

    Thanks for the confirmation and glad it worked ๐Ÿ˜‰ I'm currently working with Claudio from Simcoders to update the REP installer. We're getting there. The culprit might have been some typos in the installation script. One more thing to fix and it should be updated on the store as soon as possible. Next time you'll download the REP 172 from the store, the installer should work on my GTN mod.
