So, for your home made dials you would create a folder called FTDials and lop the whole lot in it. Now the interesting bit - FS treats a sub folder in the same way it does a CAB file. Therefore, in your Panel.cfg file, you type the same data for each gauge but the value before the ! sign now refers to your gauge folder rather than a CAB file. For example: Gauge15=FTDials!Percolator, 227,628,79,80 The above line would work equally well for a gauge called Percolator.XML that was either in a) a CAB file called FTDials.CAB b) a Gauges/FTDials sub folder (not a CAB in sight). Oh dear, I didn't know that. By sheer coincidence I put all my working XML files in a folder within the 2004 gauges file called Digital, and I called my CAB file Digital.CAB. I'm assuming it'll read the gauges from the CAB file rather than the sub-folder, but I'd better rename it just in case! Frank T.
