  1. I'll keep this updated as I regularly work my way through planes I own. These are full integrations with working knobs and buttons inside the 3D model.

  2. Keep an eye on the other site. This is currently in testing and will be released soon for the Version 1.9 aircraft. You probably know me from my single and dual GTN 750 mod to the Airfoillabs King Air 350.
  3. I'm working on fixing the EHSI on the Airfoillabs KA350 for the GTN; out of the box the IDENT and TTG don't work. I was able to fix the IDENT by pointing the dataref to the GTN so that it's working; however I'm fighting with time. Does anyone have any ideas how to convert or use this so it's in minutes/seconds? The TTG on EHSI's always show MM:SS however when looking at the dataref below I get for example 2.11637773 RXP/radios/indicators/hsi_dme_time_min_pilot This is the section of the ACF that I need to fix -- the AFL dataref's don't work with the RXP; they like to overwrite each other.

  4. I just finished the DUAL 750! https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/51982-airfoillabs-king-air-350-rxp-gtn-750-dual-hd-10/
  5. I leave that up to user — it’s happening on the King Air 350 with RTN period. The modification I did isn’t causing the errors to happen. The one thing I know is that I haven’t seen memory leak crash my game yet but that may be due to having 32GB of free memory.
  6. I just updated my post -- I meant to say this is happening on stock new Airfoillabs KA 350 and then my GTN 750 retrofit modified plane. Simple point was definitely plane issue with AFL and wondered what it would be doing to cause that memory spam. I see other's now reporting that they get those flooded messages with clicking things like sel on the yoke.
  7. @RXP are you aware of this? I can reproduce it on stock plane as well as my modded plane -- log file gets flooded with this as soon as you enable RXP unit (even as a 2D integration with no 3D component.) It's happening on the Airfoillabs King Air 350 It then repeats this over and over until memory overload and game crashes. Let me know if you can think of anything; maybe another bug with Airfoillabs?
  8. Here's interesting find -- I have two panels now to run dual 750's. I cannot get GTN 750 2 to map onto right screen; that is actually GTN 750 1. I'm still digging to figure out how/why that's happening.
  9. Just to add I was correct -- instruments are drawn to cockpit.obj file only. I just tried to draw a flat panel on another OBJ file that is added together in Planemaker and was unsuccessful in mapping the GTN to it or even the GNS 430. This is definitely as far as I can go with Carenado since I can't manipulate the cockpit.obj without breaking the whole plane.
  10. Jean-Luc, Here are my responses in red. This mod is not altering the original panel.png UV mapping which was designed for the dual GNS 430. That is correct; the panel.png file is not altered in any way. The GTN screens render where the GNS 430 where rendering instead. Yes, the GTN is actually rendering to two flat 3D panels inside the cockpit.obj file--this is same two panels that the GNS 430 default renders to. You've manually edited the cockpit.obj which is embedding the hard-coded 3D manipulators so that the mouse won't turn an invisible GNS 430 knob. There are two parts; in the OBJ file there are actual manipulators (look like little 3D vertices) and then inside OBJ file from text perspective there are actual manipulator coding -- both of those were removed using AC3D. You've added the GTN bezel 3D models at the correct 3D XYZ location attaching the GTN bezel 3D objects to the aircraft file. Yes, there are two ways I could have done this. I could have placed the model into cockpit file and then used the cockpit textures for both normal and LIT; but that would required me to add on to the panel texture. Other solution is to use Planemaker and imbed it as a misc object at right point -- doing this allows me to use the texture of the specific object for both normal and LIT mode. Here is the cockpit.obj file where you can see the GNS screens. I was able to modify this file on Airfoillabs plane to add the 750 without any issues. I think the problem with Carenado King Air 200 is the older design (think it's really XP10 ported plane.) No matter how I exported it the file would corrupt and not be functional. I would need to be able to manipulate these 3D panels to make screen larger. I figured out that the instruments are always rendered on cockpit.obj file (at least in planes I've dug apart.) You can have other cockpit files layered over it for additional modeling but screen draw is there. You can see the two screen render spots in blue box. That is why in previous images you would see the GTN screen duplicate onto next screen. They're both associated to same panel tag for GPS. One thing I didn't try was maybe using another panel in front of it with same coding (might try that.)
  11. It's been published! https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/51824-airfoillabs-king-air-350-rxp-gtn-750-hd/
  12. First off -- thank you to Jean-Luc for the insight into the workings and the application, and Bourrinopathe for the superb 3D model that I used and the PM's back and forth. I don't have approval to distribute this by Airfoillabs and I like to respect designers wishes so until then it's not available. What I can tell you is that it's not very hard to do! I was able to integrate the 750 with full buttons and knobs working; yes you can click on home or direct and the screen will respond. I couldn't be anymore happier right now! Couple things to note The volume knob for COM and NAV doesn't work quite right -- the plane itself is resetting the volume separate from the GPS. If removing the old GPS and manipulators; be very careful in your 3D app as you can remove ability to move the mixture levers with your mouse.
  13. After additional work today I deemed this a roadblock -- the cockpit panel that paints the GPS screens on are in a file that I can't import/export successfully. It's unfortunately due to many circumstances out of my control and obviously Carenado reports zero plans to ever implement it. So here is where I ended up. - I graciously used Bourrinopathe models (which are freaking AMAZING!) and added them to cockpit - I removed the knob acutators from the cockpit.obj file using text editor; no more mouse over GPS and picking up the random buttons/knobs from GNS 430 It's pretty decent for what it is -- though really the screen could be just bit bigger. Overall I'm happy and done (after 3 days of going at it.) Major thanks to Bourrinopathe for my PM's and the models.
  14. I disected your Cessna mod and I originally was right -- the 3d panel for the GPS is in the cockpit.obj file and that is one I can't manipulate without it breaking.
  15. I went back at it and disagree with my previous statement; that should be the trigger buttons for old GNS 430. If I can't remove them do to texture issue that's fine. I can live without buttons working just so long as it looks realistic. However I found Bourrinopathe models and decided to give that a shot -- which worked a lot easier but I still can't for life of me figure out the GNS issue. I'm still digging/reading/searching. Also kudos to Bourrinopathe for his models -- that is some AWESOME 3d work my friend!
