Hello, I recently purchased a G1000 Hardware system from Noble Simulations in PA. It is a two video display with buttons controlled by an opened cockpits USB board and encoder knobs the run by two Leo Bordnar boards. I was trying to run it in x-plane with simavio and was able to get in partially working with that setup but several things would either not work at all or not work properly. Later I found out from Austin Meyers author and owner of x-plane said that there is no G1000 support unless you by his commercial version of x-plan and a professional simulator. So I tried for several days to no avail to get it working on x-plane. So the folks at Noble Simulations recommended that I try Mindstar G1000 with Prepar3D. So I read up on both of these pieces of software and heard very good things. So I downloaded P3D and installed. I found that it does not a have a Cessna 172 or 182 with it. So I downloaded A2A's 172, and installed it. Then I downloaded Mindstar G1000, and installed it. Then I ran the G1000 configuration file and set it up for the cessna 172 and could not get it to work at all. So I switched to an airplane that has a G1000 the Baron Twin 58 w/G1000. It does not work with that either. I'm not sure that it is working at all. How do you know if it is working. With Simavio it was an external program that ran separately but communicated with x-plane. I'm not sure if it is an external program, a plug in, or it just runs in the background with the sim??? I do not believe that it is working because I created a profile in the config g1000 file for the Baron and it does not take away the bezels on the panel. What is everyones experience with Mindstar G1000? How did you install it? How does it work? How do you know that it is working? Any help would be appreciated thanks.. PS: I'm using Prepar3D 3.1... Wil
