Thanks Mark!

And also let me thank those who offered suggestion / improvements because I thought I was finished... Roll Eyes

I believe this version will be the standard for my other V-One gauges upgrades. I'm really pleased with how well it has evolved Smiley

Thank you very much for that, Paul! I've just finished setting up the previous version which is already a great addition to a great airplane! I just wish I'd found the new one about an hour ago before I took off... Wink

Thanks Rob  Smiley
I'm sure you'll like the latest version just as much if not more!

P.S. I'm done with making any more changes to the 737 for now. Time to update the other V-One gauges  Wink

Paul,

I installed the new gauge for the second leg of my trip this afternoon and I have to say that I'm stunned and completely impressed with the quality of this gauge!! It adds a new and realistic dimension to the airplane. The best upgrade is the auto-setting of the a/s bugs for takeoff and landing. I expected the setting for t/o based on your description and then got busy during approach to a handflown visual and didn't even realize they'd been reset for landing until turning final and realizing we were all reset again.

Thanks very much again! I'm really looking forward to your upgrade to the '27 gauge (please make it first Wink) as the version 2.4 has some issues and your gauge will help mitigate some of the disappointment Grin

I still love it anyway..it's an old airplane and they all have quirks...

Cheers!

In the instructions with the download I am confused with step:

2. Under [Window01] if you want the icons added:

What do the dots represent in this portion:
gauge01=..\..\CS_B737-200\panel\V-One!v1_Icon, 0, 0, 44, 26

I have yet to finish and test but in my entry I assumed the dots where the full path to the V-One folder I created and entered this:

gauge01=F:\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\CS_B737-200\panel\V-One!v1_Icon, 0, 0, 44, 26

Am I even close?

Please, never mind. I figured it out. Thank you for this wonderful addition. Now I need to locate the one for the 727.

Glad you got it working.

I should go through an explaination anyway to clear things up.
The line: gauge01=..\..\CS_B737-200\panel\V-One!v1_Icon, 0, 0, 44, 26 should be copy-and-pasted as is.

FSX interprets ..\.. as follows:
From the root folder (..\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X) go up two folders (\SimObjects\Airplanes) then use the explicit location (\CS_B737-200\panel\V-One).

While ..\..\CS_B737-200\panel portion is not nessesary in the -200 installation, it is very important for the -200ADV, C and F variants.

It was much easier for me to provide a single line that would work for all 737 models and have only one installation location.

Hope this cleared-up some questions for some of you  Smiley

Hi Paul! first of all thank you for this utility.
I just want to know if I should modify the turbine engine data section setting in the aircraft.cfg of the 200F/C variant.

Thanks in advance

Yes, the recommend changes will keep the plane from taking-off like a rocket!
