    Posted: December-18-2011 at 4:34am
Hello,

I try to create new windows in the flight1 cessna mustang to put the g1000 MFD & PFD on them and send them on multiple monitors. (I would like to build a cessna mustang cockpit)

But the gauges on the flight1 mustang seems quite complex, when I open this aircraft in FSPS I have directly a lot of error like:

"inGauge[3], a gauge named"flight1_mustang!G1000pfd_large" does not exist in XML gauge "flight1_mustang"

When the panel is finaly open a lot of gauge are in magenta (nearly all of them) and I can move them in the same window. (back in flight simulator the moved gauges are working) but I cann'ot move these gauges to another window as fsps doesn't find the corresponding file and name. (in gauge property)

Does the flight1 mustang use a complex type of gauge that FSPS cann'ot handle or is this just a question of gauge location ?

If someone could help me I would be grateful as I'm becoming desperate.

Best regards,

Hi

 

You will find that a lot of the more recent and complex aircraft will have the magenta outline gauge issue, you could try toggling the Resolve Gauge DLL Dependencies option from the Option>Preferences menu, it "may" work.

 

As for the Mustang while I do have her I was not going to try out your modification as she is running so well, but what I did do is to open any window that has one of the PFD's in it, in this case the Main Panel window, and then select the gauge you want to use with a left click then use the Edit>Copy button form the top menu, now with that copied you should now be able to make a new window with you own preferred name and ident number and with this window open use the top menu Edit>Paste option to add the previously selected gauge to your new window, you will then probably have to move the gauge around and resize it to fit you new window though.

 

As for if it will actually work in the sim, well that’s another matter, as some of the more complex gauges and especially the primary display type of gauges tend to only let one copy be visible at any one time as it saves your frame rates and the gauges own refresh times, so you could end up with the main instrument panels version being blank if the new copy that you created is active.

 

As I say I have not actually tried this out in the sim for the reason given above, but the gauge did copy into a new window using the copy and paste approach so if you want to try it out it would be interesting to hear the results.

 

I hope it helps, and I hope it works.

I would point out that the message from FSPS is quite appropriate, since neither the PFD or the MFD are XML gauges, so of course they don't exist in the XML gauge "flight1_mustang"...
 
Both of the sub-windows already exist, so I have to wonder why you are trying to reinvent the wheel?
Window12=G1000 PFD Large Left 
Window19=G1000 MFD Large Left
 
Window24=G1000 PFD Large Right
Window25=G1000 MFD Large Right
All you need to do is open any of the above sub-windows, then right-click, undock and then move to your other monitor(s) as desired.

Whoops I never thought of that one, my only excuse is that I don’t use those pop-ups so I had forgotten all about them, sorry about that one.

That's true.
But what I want to do is get rid of the "panel" part of the PFD and MFD gauge where the buttons and rotary switches are located to keep only the screen part of the gauge that I would as you said transfer easily to another monitor.
So I wanted to edit the gauge.
 
I find out that mainly of the gauge in the Flight1 mustang are not .xml but new .spb format which is better for fps but not editable with fspanelstudio !!!
 
the only way to be able to edit it is to transform the .spb gauge into .xml gauge with spb2xml software but it seems to works only for "simple gauge", I tried to transform the pfd and mfd gauge into .xml and I have an error message....
 
It seems to be very complex to edit "complex" .spb gauge.
 
Knowing that if I succeed in transforming the pfd and mfd .spb gauge in .xml gauge and succeed in modifing it with fsps then I will have to transform it back to .spb format wich seems to be again more difficult.
 
So if someone is a specialist of .spb gauge please help...
 
Thanks,

The Flight1 G1000 is not XML at all, so it wouldn't matter if you did manage to decompile the .spb XML scripts!
 
Flight1_GarminG1000_510.gau is the compiled C++/GDI+ coded G1000 PFD, MFD and support modules.
 
There is no way to reverse engineer this compiled .dll module, even if it weren't a breach of the EULA from Flight1 to do so.
