Hi Bones, I tried an old .GAU file in FSX and the program detected it as ancient and ignored it, so I need to build some XML replacements. I read your gauge tutorial, but it doesn't seem to cover what I am after, sorry it was a bit over my head! What I'd like is a series of digital gauges - airspeed, altitude, compass heading, trim settings, wind speed/direction - that I can use in the mini panel, so that my view can be as unhindered as possible. I understand that I need to build a .CAB file which contains a series of .XML files, so the gauges are invoked in the panel.cfg file by gaugexx=digitalgauges!airspeed, x, y, l, h. I am sure that somewhere you had an FS variable list which included these values. All I need is this plus a skeleton .XML file which I can edit to include the appropriate variable for each gauge. Any ideas on the way forward please? I also need help on how to construct a .CAB fiile please. Frank T.
