Fsx Dg808s And Max's Yawstring

Recommended Posts

It works, but with some limitations (see the last pasrt of this post).

How to install the yawstring:

First FSSound.dll has to be installed in the main FSX folder and mr-yawstring.gau in the gauges folder.

Then in the panel.cfg in the [Window Titles] section this line has to be added:

Window05=yawstring

Finally the following section has to be added in the panel.cfg between the sections [Windows04] and [VCockpit01]:

[Window05]

size_mm=545,354

position=1

BACKGROUND_COLOR=0,0,0

visible=1

ident=yawstring

gauge00 = mr-yawstring!red, 223,84,100

What do you get after doing this:

- In Cockpit view the yawstring will be visible by default and look like attached to the canopy.

- In Virtual Cockpit view the yawstring will only becomes visible after clicking Views->Instrument Panel->Yawstring. The yawstring will now be visible, docked on a fixed position in the top centre of the screen. By panning the instrumentpanel down a bit, it will look like the yawstring is attached to the canopy.

What are the limitations:

- In Cockpit view none, as far as I have experienced.

- In Virtual Cockpit View there are some, because in the DG808S the yawstring only works when the gauge is declared in a 2D-window section. These are the unrealistic things I noticed as a consequence of this:

- when panning in VP-view the yawstring will stay on its place in the top centre of the screen, and will not move along with the movement of the intrumentpanel/canopy.

- every time when you leave VP-view and come back to it again, the yawstring has to be reset by clicking Views->Instrument Panel->Yawstring.

Feel free to try it ( :excl: at your own risk). Any comments and/or suggestions to get it to work better are welcome.

Does the yawstring interfere at all with the forward visuals, or is it mounted higher on the canopy where it is not in the direct field of view?

When installed the yawsring is in the direct field of view, as described in my first post. Does it <quote>interfere<unquote> with forward visuals? I wouldn't want the yawstring on a place where I don't have a permanent look of it.

I edited my first post.

Initially one of the needed changes in the panel.cfg was missing.

The install-instructions are now complete and right (I checked it by building the yawstring into the SOAR-DG).
