Now, there are a couple of extra gauges in the KC-130, and AC-130, so I copied the panel.cfgKC-130\panel folder into the CS_EX1_KC130\panel folder, and the panel.cfg from the AC-130\panel into the CS_EX2_AC130\panel folder.


Re: KC-130 in P3D v4+

Hi Mark.

That part - the panel.cfg entries - I have managed I think.  What is missing in my P3Dv4 gauges folder is the refuel gauge for the KC. It looks like L-M converted the weapons gauge for the AC-130 (C130.weapons.cab) but did not convert the CS refuel gauge for the tanker.  Consequently, when I open the refule pop up I get a blank square. 

Just checking to see I may be missing something?

I have been looking hard at this today.  In P3D 4.5 I do see that there is a reference to the gauge called C130.TK which is present in the gauges folder (not in simobjects).

In the CS version this file was called Captain_Sim.C130.TK and it was located in the CS_EX1_KC130\panel folder.

The panel.cfg files look almost identical, only the reference to the gauge is updated:

[Window20]
size_mm=400, 178
window_size=0.230, 0.102
background_color=8,8,8
position=1
visible=0
ident=11067
nomenu=0
gauge00=C130.TK!refuel, 0,0

So this suggests that LM maybe DID so something with the refuel gauge.  If nothing else, they at least renamed it and kept it in the panel.cfg file - that much is evident.

Maybe it works, using some kind of keystroke?  How did it work in the CS version?

well it works.  It is a function of the panel/view menus and not the airplane itself.



I got here by messing with the panel.cfg file, but then I realized I really didn't have to.  Finally just looked in the correct menu which is Vehicle -> Instrument Panel and I have all the panel menus available there.
