I've been playing around with some gauge bitmaps, doing a few changes, etc. Sometimes when I'm done, save as a normal bitmap and start up the sim, the bitmap doesn't show up. But sometimes it will. I haven't figured out any rhyme or reason to it yet. Is there a special format for xml gauge bitmaps that I'm unaware of?
Example, I took the CalClassic DC-6 airspeed indicator, changed the red and yellow areas to fit a C-46 and saved it. Looked great until I fired up the sim and checked it out. All I had was the gauge outer bezel and the needle. The rest was black.
On the other hand, I took the TWI wind drift indicator, gray scaled it to make it look a bit old school and it works fine.
Like I said, no rhyme or reason to it. I've got to be missing something simple here.
