beaufighter panel not showing in FSX

Postby semprestappare » 08 Oct 2012, 13:01

8) Hello ,am brand new on this site!
But flightsimmer since FS 5.1!

Q:
Athough yr Beaufighter was doing fine in FS2004,d/l FSX version recently!

Sub panels are showing fine ,but not the cockpit itself!?

Moved the zip(cab) file completely to FSX Gauges but no result!

System specs:MS windows 7 home premium 64 bits-sp1-intelcore i5-cpu 650-3.2 gherz-6 gb RAM- Ati Radeon hd 5700 series.

Any suggestions from the board?

Hi, and welcome.

My Beaufighter is FSX only, there never was a FS2004 version. The only FS2004 one was by Alphasim I think, and nothing to do with us.

My one hasn't got a 2D panel, only the VC view with a couple of pop-up panels for radio etc.

:) daveG thanks

Am not a software developer otherwise I would offered my assistance for contructing this panel.

Having seen this a/c in action (or was t a Blenheim) over my place in W2 then,I am very fond of this type.

Any project alike in the pipeline possibly?

Hello Dave

We talked about this subject before since a year or so!
Forgot all about this beautifull Beaufighter,how could I!!
About the panel,I can see two files:

BEAU.cab 679kb
Panel.cfg 2 kb

Fully modelled smooth 3D gauges. ????

I can see radio panel/autopilot gps ok,but no main panel!! 8)


Is this ok or not?

Am using W7 64 bit and high end processors /video AMD HD Radion 7700 series etc.

So,give me your expert opion or is there something else I have been overlooking during installation?

Hi There :hello:

In the panel folder, there are only 2 files:
Beau.CAB 678kb 16/05/2008 19:23
PANEL.CFG 1.38kb 14/05/2008 17:56

The panel bmp's are in the texture folder:

Do you see all those files in your Beaufighter/texture folder?

EDIT: Going back to what you asked a year ago.. there is NO 2D panel with this model so you must select VC. You don't get 'Smooth 3D gauges' in a 2D environment ;)

Hi :hello:

As Dave has said, there is no 2D panel for the main instruments, so you have to use the VC.

:wall: mm thanks for the recomfermation!

Is n'"t there anybody in FSX wonderland ,who is able to finalize this subject with a panel!
Am not in the capacity to take action,since being a logistic man.
Where is the obstruction knot or do we have to contribute to obtain a panel.
The Blenheim one is looking o.k.-for eample!

It's not a case of finalising it with a panel

The model is finished, it has no 2D panel and no one is making one I'm afraid.

It's not a simple task.
