I have a BIG problem with panels in FS2004. I know the problem comes from the gauges files because if i remove some gauges from the panels that crash FS it works. Recently i tried to install a Boeing 737-200 panel for the FFX 737. I could not find a panel here on flightsim that would work with my system. I tried every panel available for FS2002 and FS2004 with no luck.
Yesterday i installed Posky's A330 with VC. The panel didn't work. The gauge that crash everything for this specific panel is the autopilot gauge.
I getting tired of playing 3 hours with my panel file each time i install a panel. In the past two months on maybe 200 aircraft installed i had maybe about 10 panels working...
No problems with default panels and gauges and payware aicraft panels works without problems, even complex ones.
I'm running windows XP. Don't know if that could be the problem. I remember some time ago the RKG fuelstat gauges were updated for XP. Maybe XP has a problem with gauges.
