aeroedge posted a topic in Hardware Controllers | Joysticks | DriversHello simmers, I just wanted to give a shout out to a product that I've been using to control my Reality XP devices in FSX! They are from Elite Simulation Solutions, the AP-4000 GNS 530 & 430 modules. I've found them to be extremely helpful in flying "mouse free," being able to dial in comms and navs frequencies easily, and pushing any button that needs pushing without having to use the mouse. I've found it makes flying in the sim much easier, and I would even dare to say, it makes flying in the sim nearer to reality. The link to the product page is here. aeroedge
If you have the Reality XP 430 in the Seneca already, an extra trick that was discovered is to make the lower GNS a Reality XP 430 equivalent also, using the same gauge that is already in the plane. If you’re up for some somewhat simple editing of a text file, you’ll be crossfilling in no time! Step 1 is to copy and paste the “panel” folder in the Seneca’s root FSX simobjects folder, making the new folder named, “panel.xp”. Next, open up your Reality XP GNS WAAS Config X program and open up the newly named panel folder for the Seneca, “panel.xp,” and if you have the unlimited pack from Reality XP, select two Reality XP 430’s to place in the cockpit (with crossfill enabled for both of the units). Now comes the text editing. Open up the panel.cfg file in the new “panel.xp” folder with notepad, and scroll down to the [Vcockpit02] section of the file. Now, paste the following into the file, copying over the “gauge01=CarenadoG430_3D_PA34V!GNS430_nc2, 0,257,512,256” part of the file: //gauge01=CarenadoG430_3D_PA34V!GNS430_nc2, 0,257,512,256 gauge01=rxpgns!GNS430_2, 0,257,512,240 So just to clarify, the entire [Vcockpit02] section should look like this when you’re finished editing: [Vcockpit02] Background_color=0,0,0 size_mm=512,512 visible=0 pixel_size=513,513 texture=$Panel_2 gauge00=rxpGNS!GNS430, 0, 0,512,256 //gauge01=CarenadoG430_3D_PA34V!GNS430_nc2, 0,257,512,256 gauge01=rxpgns!GNS430_2, 0,257,512,240 gauge02=PA34V!ToggleCAR430, 64,0, 256, 32 Now, go back to the aircraft.cfg file in the Carenado PA34_Seneca_V folder, and select what livery you want to have the dual Reality XP 430 setup in. Where it says “panel=” under that specific livery you want to have the dual Reality XP 430 setup enabled in, simply type in “xp” after the = sign, so it should look like this: “panel=xp” . You should be good to go now!
