    Default Re: FS98 and FS2002

    Hi all again

    I like a challenge. I will try using a FS2002 panel in FS98.


    I know that FS2000 panels work in FS98. I made the BAe panel using the orginal
    from a FS2000 one ( just search on drake, here at flightsim) Someone requested
    a FS98 version. I needed only to replace the Fs2000 Default gauges and it
    worked fine. I also had to repaint the panel as the color of the orginal panel
    did not look gray in colorin the FS98 game.

    oh, and by the way, one more thing I have Great Frame Rate in FS98 with scenery
    detail set high ... I think that is important.





    Hello, Luis,
    Amplifying on the previous note, in general the sims are only one-way
    compatible. That is, FS98 stuff will work, more or less, in later sims. But not
    the other way about. What's more, sometimes scenery from the earlier sim will
    not agree with elevation or coastlines of the new one, with bizarre results.
    I agree about FS2002's niceties. In fact, the main reason I bought FS2002
    (actually, I hinted enough and got it for Christmas) was that I wanted to take
    advantage of its neat water. Otherwise, like many others at this forum, I was
    pleased with FS98 (as a major improvement over FS5.1, my previous version).
    Since then, my major attraction to FS2002 has been GMax, the immensely
    powerful aircraft- and scenery-building software that's part of FS2002 Pro. On
    my 600-MHz machine, the biggest disadvantage is loading time (I seem to spend a
    lot more time in FS2002 watching that bar fill out...)
    All in good fun. -- Dennis

    I tested a BAC-1-11 FS2002 panel in the FS98 game.

    All the custom gauges in the FS2002 panel worked in FS98. But all the default
    FS2002 gauges were missing (as should be). The biggest problem were the bitmaps
    in FS2002, they are 14 bit bitmaps and FS98 only uses 256 color bitmaps. So the
    bitmaps have to be repainted (this was the same as with FS2000).

    The Frame rate dropped using the FS2002 panel to 13

    But hay, the best news of all is that there is already a BAC-1-11 made for FS98
    and frame rate was 23-30 using it! .... : )

    So, if you need or want a more detailed panel for FS98, just grab a FS98 panel
    and put FS2002 gauges on it.
