http://forum.avsim.n...challenger-300/The Bombardier Challenger 300, designed by Richie Schwertfeger.Excellent model, but I can't fly it due to missing gauges in the panel. I have emailed Richie but I am not sure he will ever get back to me, his account hasn't been active in ages. Here are some screenshots of my panels so hopefully someone here can figure this out for me.http://img402.images...4963a247fc9.pnghttp://img9.imagesha...47249052882.pngMuch thanks-John

This is the Library forum. FSX forum is one flight down the page.Here is the link to the correct forum:http://forum.avsim.net/forum/121-ms-fsx-forum/From the screenshots, it appears to be a faulty and/or incomplete installation.These gauges should be in the ..\panel.ws folder:

We are still in the wrong forum but here is a little feedback - for what it may be worth:The file description indicates the aircraft was designed for FSX with Acceleration or at least SP2 installed. Does your system meet those requirements?I have both SP1 and SP2 installed (No Acceleration) and it displays just fine for me (the aircraft and the 2D and VC panels).There is an "extra" zip file buried in the model.300 folder named Challenger_300_update.zip but that is not required as far as I can tell.The only other issue that I noted is that the panel.cfg calls for icons which are apparently supposed to be in a file named New_Icons (a cab or folder I assume).That does not exist in my gauges folder or in the panel.ws folder so the icons on the panel do not display. Perhaps those icons are a part of an Acceleration installation - I just do not know.A quick and dirty "work-around" for the icon issue is to place a copy of the default SimIcons1024.cab (from your gauges folder) into the panel.ws folder and rename it as New_Icons.cabUseable icons do display on the panel if you do that.Otherwise the aircraft and panels display properly for me. EDIT ADDED: Also be sure to scroll down through the panel.cfg (using Notepad) and comment out the sections indicated if you did not install Garrett Smith's Honeywell FMS as recommended in the documentation. The sections in question are clearly marked. SECOND EDIT ADDED: I just discovered there is another download available which contains the missing icon cab file:http://library.avsim...=root&Go=Search
Everything's there. I have tried many times re-downloading the file and re-installing it (the way you're supposed to ;) ) No luck.
