    ARS4 radar gauge in Razbam Prowler

    Hi,I am wondering if anyone here has the panel coordinates for placing a pop up gauge of the ARS4 Radar https://library.avsim.net/index.php?CatID=fsxgau 2nd from bottom in Razbamsims Prowler http://www.razbamsims.com/store/prod...products_id=53 I am having one heck of a time with the size,no matter what size ratio,I use it's always too big for the screen.Thanks

    I have just downloaded the gauge, but I don't own the whizbam Prowler. Just to be sure...you want it only as a popup on the screen, but so far it's way too big?

    I'll try it in another military jet.

    Hi MrZippy,yes a pop up would be fine,and yeah,the pop up of it is always too big.I can figure out how to place it permanently in the cockpit later maybe,thanks for the help.

    OK, this is what it looks like as a popup in the VC of my Alpha F-8 Crusader. Straight installation with no changes.

    I've used it in several types, such as Sea Venom, Sea Vixen and Gannet, and it always needed resizing by trial and error. here's what worked with the Venom:

    //----------------------ARS---------------------------------
    [Window04]
    Background_color=0,0,0
    size_mm=405,485
    window_size_ratio=1
    visible=0
    ident=1125 //Don't change this !


    window_pos= 0.0, 0.015
    window_size= 0.560,0.560


    gauge00=ARS4!ARS_4, 0,0,200,380
    gauge01=ARS4!ARS_4_Panel, 0,380,200,80
    gauge02=ARS4!TrafficInfo_AI4, 1,1,1,1


    //---------------------- Airfuel ARS4 ------------------------
    [Window05]
    Background_color=0,0,0
    size_mm=190,240 //Don't change this !
    window_size_ratio=0.1
    visible=0
    ident=1130 //Don't change this !
    window_pos= 0.02, 0.633 //default


    gauge00=ARS4!Airfuel24, 0,0,0,240

    Thanks for the help guys,yeah several planes,I've installed the ARS4 into using the included instructions worked right off the bat,and some not so much,but,I will try what you have for the Sea venom dhasdell,and see if that works.

    Good luck! Remember to allocate suitable free windows.

    Do you only need it in 2D form?, I can probably add the VC numbers from another radar gauge, but I do like the ARS4 lay out.

    Yeah that would be great if you could please be so kind,and do that for me thanks Victory103.

    Hey Victory103 those numbers you posted for the Sea venom were the default ones from the ARS4 manual.

    Not me on the Sea Venom. I put the gauge in my Raz EA-6B but have not had a chance to check position in sim. Also suggest "kdfw" mods from the library for a more recent Prowler pit.

    Yeah I have the kdfw mods placed already,and there very good,but whenever you get the ARS4 in the Raz EA-6-b panel please let me know,thanks Victory103 for your work,and time.

    If that was me you meant on the Venom then maybe they were the originals and worked, but I certainly had to edit them for the Gannet and Swordfish. I remember an oval display needing to be edited to make it circular, and also size and position issues.

    I don't have the aircraft loaded at present, and I'm afraid I could only find the Gannet but here are the full entries. Some of the original lines are blanked with //
