• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

    Getting TOT Gauge to spike at higher temp on start up when drop back to normal

    These were not my words actually it was AI telling you that the code is just an example and that he not even sure it will do what you want. Use the example as an idea on the type of logic you can use to code your gauges if you are experience with coding. I'm sorry If I created too much...

    Holy crap!😄 I put this question in chat-gp to put it on test and I got this as answer (I m still in denial this is some serious stuff, Lol) "What I would like to do is on engine start have the gauge spike to a higher number as per the real gauge then drop back to its normal reading which is...

    I will start trying something in this spirit to fake the spike: pseudo code of mine :) if (engine is starting) \\I believe you can do this checking engine combustion A:var while delta time -> { blit TOT slider or needle to higher fake value(s) } check if delta time if reached-> {blit...

    FSXA XML Coding Problem

    one less elegant way I have solve these is by blitting the knob bitmap with the position you want it to be with certain value. you can use a case statement for that, if that is what you want anyway not sure I understand exactly what you want. Also besides a case statement you need to define...

    P3D v5 2D popup visibility gauge passing L:var to external model

    ..hmmm not sure it will make a difference but can you remove the semicolon in the conditional code Im not sure it should be there.... <Code> (L:ge_equipment,bool) 1 == ; if{ 1 } els{ 0 } </Code>

    P3D v5 2D popup visibility gauge passing L:var to external model

    Yet another lesson from the past... same issue but this time the logic was ok but the animation sprite where the same despite different names..somehow i screw them up lost a day bunking my head for nothing🙈 Most of the times stupidity but we are so fixed😄

    P3D v5 2D popup visibility gauge passing L:var to external model

    I had something similar in the past, story short I figured the Lvars used in the logic and animation differ by one capital letter🙈 I felt so stupid... 😄

    P3D v5 2D popup visibility gauge passing L:var to external model

    Im just assuming you didnt... You can debug the Lvar and see wether it is being set indeed?

    FSX Missing Gauges In Overhead

    Assuming they work earlier as you said and there is no induced error in the code...it could be a bug of FSPS I have seen this before. You can try resizing the gauges just for sake of testing and see whether they appear after refreshing...

    Roman, I'm not sure how you made this work but I found this wiki on the subject so I will try to decipher this crypto language :) https://www.fsdeveloper.com/wiki/index.php/XML:_Escape_Sequences @johnman: My bad I did not understand you were referring to this but anyway I don't have the skills...

    FSX vertical text

    Yes I already have a bitmap but because of the bitmap size constrains to fit within this gauge it doesn't look sharp so I rather go with the text option hopefully it can be sharper...but I cannot find a suitable example how to write a text vertical using text formatting. This is what I have but...

    Hi All, Maybe a stupid question but I search around unable to find any mention: is there a way to write text vertically in a gauge using fs9 style in XML? I have a rectangle and I want to write a text vertically in it but I cannot find a way to do it. Something like this. I cannot find a good...

    How do I open the aircraft's GAU file and MDL and AIR file?

    AIR files ->https://www.aero.sors.fr/fsairfile.html MDL->https://www.scenerydesign.org/modelconverterx/ GAU-> are compiled DLLs (copyright) not able to modify maybe only bitmaps can be extracted with proper tool I belief
