Some more closups bezel shots for you String, not as good as what Frank can do, but here they are anyway. Some knobs are still attached with bluetack
I played further with F4 gauges and I must say that program can do anything ... All it takes is a little calculation to make the application being displayed at a certain location (hence screen) but it can be extended throughout three different screens so the instruments scatters on my different LCDs. I never though it would accept to be treated like that. Big cheers to the F4gauges team.
The only thing I don't have access to is the NVIS option of F4 gauges or the setting of the speed caret through the F4Gauge keystroke since I am on the same computer as running Falcon.
No big deal...
The program surely can use a better configuration utility but after a while, it's becoming really easy to get your hands down and dirty in the .ini file with notepad.
I know have reached the point that was my goal for the past three month redoing the CP:
All this is driven on the same computer - I use only one computer for my cockpit. Since I only have the UCC, F4 gauges and Falcon running, the FPS remain quite fluid although I have 4 screens .... try that with FSX for that matters...
This was really worth doing I strongly believe that at this time, the only real way to go for someone that wants working instrument is to go the LCD route. I would press further to find a decent 4inch for the HSI if I were you
but then that would make 5 screens iso 4 and that also means a third video card into the computer (we only have two PCIexpress slot anyway), unless a TV output can be used.
The only place where the analogue solution beats the LCD imho is on the right glareshield instruments (OIL, NOZ, RPM & FTIT) where Beta Innovations stuff is certainly much more exciting than the way I implemented my solution.
Although I considered placing OSRAMS displays into the small instruments there and implement only their digital value as String did. Who know I might do that in the future.
CLosup of the Mfds with their displayed information at this time. I will certainly change yet again the right one, but having a working HSI even not at its real place, is a must for me making the falcon charts and flying a lot heads down.
