I'm not aware of a panel that was built especially for Poskys with a 'trailing edge wingview' -- I doubt that you'll get away without editing the .cfgs one way or another.

Check this one out Arrow

http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=&Name=&FileName=wingviews.zip&Author=&CatID=root

The author Rafal Haczek says that you can use them with any panel you wish. Note the reference to the Posky 744 in the File Description.

This gauge here sounds interesting Arrow

http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=&Name=&FileName=vcp_gauge.zip&Author=&CatID=root

Check out the jpgs above the File Description and you'll know what I mean. I'm gonna have a closer look at this one later on - if it does what I'm hoping it does... sweeeeet Very Happy

how do i get to the cfg files to make the changes

I can only assume you're referring to wingviews.zip Question

In that case do exactly what it says in the text document named panel.cfg entries

Just be sure to back up your original .cfg files before you start editing.

It's not thatt necessary because you have to save the changes in the cfg file in order for those changes to take place, right Question

Of course you have to save the changes in the .cfg file in order for them to have any affect.

What happens if you discover that a mistake crept in somewhere?
If you're experienced in editing you won't always backup but I certainly wouldn't recommend this approach to anyone who doesn't yet feel comfortable. To take the mistery out a little bit here's an example:
If all you do is add the line visual_damage=1 to your aircraft.cfg you might refrain from backing up because you've added this line so many times, you know exactly where it goes and you know exactly what it does.

This is just one of the instances when I don't backup but, as I said, for anyone just starting out, backing up is a good habit to get into.

Unless you are more specific in your request and let us know which approach or file you are using, any attempt to take you through 'step by step' is doomed to fail.

The Master of Wingviews T_T_T has written volumes on the subject -- makes good reading Arrow

Hey bawns I just did a POSKY A-340_200 with 'wingviews' --> the first link I gave you at the top. You get three different views on each side - very nice.

I haven't done any others yet as the POSKY 342 is the only one I've got installed atm... I'll do some of the others as I get along installing the a/c.

Make a backup of the panel.cfg and create a new one pasting the following into it:

IMPORTANT!!

The above is meant for the default 747 panel only in conjunction with the POSKY A-340_200/300 models.

If you still can't get it to display, come back here and tell us exactly what the problem is or PM me. I'd post some screenshots but I've run out of film Tomato

i go into my 747 files and click the panel cfg file but i dont see all this information that you tell me about all i get is the picture of the pane and what they look like. i right click on the panel folder and try to find other ways of getting to this info but nothing leeds me too this info neather what should i do.

Do you know how to navigate using Windows Explorer? In case you don't (you should have told us) do this:

hold down the Windows Key and press E

now click on + in front of Local Disk

now click on + in front of Program Files

now click on + in front of Microsoft Games

now click on + in front of Flight Simulator 9

now click on the word Aircraft

now click on the 'word' b737_400

now click on the word panel

Now you see 5 Bitmap Images on your right and a panel file -- this is the panel.cfg file.

Before you do anything else

Back it up!!

After your Backup you obviously have two identical files. Keep them both inside the panel folder. Rename one to 'panel.orig' and the one you are going to edit 'panel'.

Now double-click on the one you just renamed 'panel'. Next, delete the text in this file and finally copy and paste the text I posted above into it. Close and Save Changes. Done Very Happy

i got all the way to creating a copy of all the panel files (pictures) but the only text that i see are the names that are located just beneth the pictures nothing else. this is really getting to me man, i wanted the wing view for so long and still cant get it. whats wrong with me. it must be me. send some pictures if you can please. thanks alot bawns

OK, who could resist you. You get the following three different views on each side.

Nothing wrong with you bawns, just relax. You could make your life a whole lot easier if you weren't so secretive (yet another Howard Hughes?) Wink

You haven't given us any indication what you're up to, what method you are using - if any. It's one of those things where you must make an effort and start at the beginning. The way to do this is to stick to one method at the beginning, read and follow instructions step by step and as if by magic, things just start working.

The wingviews above were made using wingviews.zip as already mentioned. Here's the link again Arrow http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=&Name=&FileName=wingviews.zip&Author=&CatID=root

Everything you need to know is contained in the documentation Read

I know that reading is going out of fashion at a frightening speed - but when 'readme' files and instructions are concerned, that's just what you'll have to do.

This:

i got all the way to creating a copy of all the panel files (pictures) but the only text that i see are the names that are located just beneth the pictures nothing else.

...I didn't understand at all. Seems we're both groping in the dark. I know what causes me to be confused Very Happy

Good luck, let us know how you're getting on.

when ever i click on the panel a pop up tells me that the files that i am attempting to open is a file that is used by various systems and should not be edited. when i try to open it anyway it tell me that window needs to know what file was used to creat it and needs to go on the web to find. after that it tells me that it cannot find the program to open the file to edit it and that it. what program can i ese to open this file.

I DID IT AND NOW MY FLIGHT SIM WILL NOT START. I THEN DELETED FS AND REINSTALED IT AGAIN

Pro Member Chief Captain
Tailhook Chief Captain

I'll ask you two simple questions and all I want in return is two honest answers:

1. Are you using wingviews.zip? Yes or No

2. Have you read the instructions? Yes or No

BTW, you're not supposed to delete FS -- you're supposed to uninstall it and yes, there's a hell of a difference between the two.
