:?
I have modifide my "panel.cfg" file to include the rwyinfo as instructed in the readme file for the b737_400 model. only a black rectangle appears in the instrument panel nothing else.
Have I missed anything? Do I need to have any other program to be installed to work with RWYINFO!V2?
Please help.
I would like to use this function as it would help me with my flights.
I'm a startup simmer, presently building a 737 cockpit layout.

If only the black rectangle appears then only the background of the gauge window is displaying, and the gauge is either not referenced correctly or the rwyinfo.gau file is not located in your fs9/gauges folder.

If you want send me your panel.cfg file for the 737-400 and I'll take a look at it and see what could be corrected.

Regards.
Ernie.

Hi Ernie,
Thanks for your prompt reply.
I sent a reply to your masage late last evening (17th May) but I don't think it went trhough, at least it is not vesiable on the forum, anyway......

Before your reply arrived I have made some mods to the config file, see mods bellow with the following results.
The runway panel is now partially visible, APT, NAV buttons are OK, part of PREV and the KBD bottons are visible, with an overlaping partial HSI.
When mouse clicked on the partially visible KBD button the statust line turnes "puple", however no keyboard input is accepted.
The "RWYINFO" appears, however it is quite large in size and it is on the wrong place, with .055 .055 numbers visible over the F and the I lettering, but funtioanal, it toggles the "APT" window on/off.
This is my first time trying to mod any files, so there is much to learn to positioning, sizeing, colors, etc., some I may be able to fix.

If you have the time, please review the CFG file listing bollow and make recommendations as needed.

Thanks, Emil

(PS, in the meantime I will try to make some more mods....)

I am not sure if this is your problem, but the numbers are separated by periods instead of commas. You might change it to commas.

Thanks for the info, corrected as suggested with commas, my mistake.
Still does not work for the 737-400.

Works very well for the triple 7s.
