    Question about (non)working VC-gauges in CFS1

    Hi all,

    Would someone be so kind to explain to this design-illiterate why the VC-gauges in the original Microsoft CFS1-planes DO work and don't in almost all other plane designs?

    Thanks,

    hertzie.

    Think it is because CFS1 was the first to have VC gauges and no one made a modeling program that could add VC gauges to add-ons.

    Hi Allen,

    Thanks for the reply. If that's the reason, would it be possible for someone to make such a programme or has Microsoft blocked that?

    Regards,

    hertzie.

    I would think it would be possible but unlikely any one would make the program.

    Hello Gentlemen,

    This issue was actually addressed many many years ago, but I forget by whom.
    (I think the fellow had an Italian or Spanish sounding name.)
    This was not long after I started building for Combat Flight Simulator and I am certain that it involved replacing the MDL with the version (7?) used by CFS and then using other SCASM code to make things work.
    Even these days, I tend to do very minimal interior views even though the capability is certainly there with SCASM.

    I might have something in my archives somewhere but need to remember what exactly it is that I am looking for.
    I am guessing that the package with description of the process might be found on Simviation but that is only a guess.
    If I remember more, I will post here or PM you, Hertzie.

    Nice looking Airacobra, Allen. I am having loads of fun building one and reworking another.

    - Ivan.
